Last week I received The Agency by Ally O’Brien (from St. Martin Press).
Ally O’Brien is the pseudonym for a writing duo that includes an international bestselling author of suspense novels and a successful media agent based in London.
BN synopsis: Meet Tess Drake. She’s earned everything she has. Now it’s time to get what she deserves…
Sexy super-agent Tess Drake has worked hard to make a name for herself in the glamorous yet cut-throat entertainment industry. Tess works at an international agency, where she skillfully manages some fo the world’s biggest egos – her company, Bardwell International operates in the thrilling, fast-paced worlds of Rights, wrongs and revenge. Tess has been an agent there for longer than she cares to remember and now she’s in trouble. Real trouble. After the mysterious death of the agency’s senior partner, Lowell Bardwright, Tess’s sworn enemy, Cosima Tate, has taken over and would do anything to send Tess’s career down in flames. And Cosima is only one of the rogue’s gallery of agents in London and New York who want Tess to take a fall.
I was about twenty pages in when I knew this was not a book for me. Just couldn’t finish it. I know it happens to every reader, but it doesn’t happen often to me. At any rate, I’m going to offer this copy to the first person (US residents only) who leaves a comment requesting the book. I only ask that you also review it once you finish reading. It’s an arc from the publisher.
