A slow burn romance in Hollywood.

Jo is a Shonda Rhimes-style show runner about to make the leap into writing for a major movie franchise and to avoid talking about it, she decides to take her assistant with her to the SAG Awards as a buffer. Emma intuitively knows Jo’s needs and genuinely wants to protect and support her, so she agrees but is overwhelmed by the red carpet experience. As a result, an awkward moment is caught by the Paparazzi and the tabloids link them as a couple. Jo’s never commented about her love life and neither woman is out to the other, but a slow (slow) burn romance starts to simmer as they deal with the fallout. This is a fun smart story with an inside Hollywood twist—complete with an on point #metoo discussion. I also appreciated the inclusion of both women’s heritage—Emma’s through her family's Jewish traditions and the nod to Jo’s Chinese roots.
