THERE WAS A PART WHERE HISwas a part where his were described There was a mention of a pair of birds across his chest Archie s character seemed two dimensional Or maybe I just didn t see enough of him to now who he really isI still love you HarryMost of the story was about Rose s life in PR Because of that some of the parts felt dragging I also think that because of that there wasn t enough time to expose the readers to the blooming romance between Rose and Archie I loved each interaction between the two but there wasn t enough to establish a real connection between themI think this book is woman s fiction or chick lit than romance and would recommend it as such From what I ve read it was about Rose s life as a 20 something trying to balance life inside and outside work a career in PR she genuinely enjoys and is good at and an awkward and sometimes painful attempt at finding love in Tinder Public Relations is a novel told in the heroine s perspective It s uniue relatable and very millennial I think Harry Styles fans slow burn lovers and Young and New Adult readers will enjoy this light and fresh "Novel ARC Received In "ARC received in for an honest review Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram This is a fun and uirky novel about the life and times of an upcoming PR rep I enjoyed the interaction between her and her best friend funny and so relateable As well as the inter office relationships Very true to life In fact I have seen some of these issues myself The authors did a great job setting up the uniue and interesting characters so in that aspect it was a pleasurable and in depth discoveryBut being a midlife wife the story lands very far into the YA young adult category A lot of music references and conversations that is decidedly YA Multiple references of social media stalking shhhh it s part of the job tracking information interacting with the younger crowd Very much a millennial readThis was fine for me I understood it because I work in this arena However for someone of my age group or someone who is not involved online this could be difficult factor to relate to how it works in the storyThe authors were also leading up to a potential love match in a very subtle way The first half of the book was really mainly about the life and times of the PR rep It wasn t until you were uite far into the story that you understood a crush was occurring And then you didn t now if it was reciprocated or not But stringing us along is not necessarily a bad thingThe last uarter and the ending to me was. And coming young indie star Raya He'll do it but only if Rose becomes his publicist As the faux mance begins to rehabilitate Archie's faltering career Rose finds his herself having unexpected inconvenient and definitely unprofessional feelings for the croone. The best part of the whole story It made up for a lot of the way the book was written and the obscurity of the up and coming potential romance Plus they set up a possible second bookThe authors did do a great job in creating interesting and uniue characters that you want as your BFF s They all had a wonderful role in the book that made it engaging and hard to put down Plus the book is written in first person which makes it a very personal story with a uniue perspective The writers included a lot of humor and feeling into the story that make this a stand out that you won t soon forgetOverall this book was very well written with great characters and a witty plot We all had that rock star crush at one time or another in our lives This book is today s version targeted to the current culture of the big city 20 somethings Perfect for that lazy weekend or beach read I ve been in a bit of an overall life slump and looking for something fun and different to read so I picked this off Netgalley The weird confusing cover is doing this book NO favors at all no this is not a gender bending remake of the 80s movie Manneuin inside is actually a cute and engaging piece of romantic chick lit I found it in the New Adult section where the cover stands out like a sore thumb amidst all the naked tattooed abs but there s not a player or a virgin or a whiff of angst in sight it really reads to me like classic 90s chick litRose is a twenty something in Manhattan trying to move up the ranks at her PR firm Rose s boss can t make a meeting about how to boost the flagging career of British singer songwriter Archie Fox so Rose is told to sit in take notes and eep her mouth shut But when a male colleague s horrible proposals start to tank the meeting Rose blurts out her own idea a fauxmance between Archie and an up and coming indie singerArchie not only approves the fauxmance idea he asks Rose to act as his handler during it despite the fact that her firm thinks she s too junior for the job And of course as Rose is masterminding every romantic detail of Archie s new relationship she s falling hard for him herselfI ve always had a weird fascination with celebrity fauxmances but usually books about them have the pretending to be couple fall for each other so I liked that this book gave things a new twist I m not usually the biggest fan of love with a celebrity stories but this one won me overRose was a really great main character and as a former twenty something who s lived the non glamorous life in Manhattan I thought the book really got all the small details right I ll
ADMIT THAT THIS BOOK DID TAKEthat this book did take while to get going Weirdly my very favorite parst of the book were 1 learning "HOW FAUXMANCES WORK FROM BEHIND THE "fauxmances work from behind the and 2 all the PR stuff I was fascinated by the way Rose tracked the success of the fauxmance on Twitter and InstagramThe romance was sweet and very very very slow burn If you read NA for the steamy romance this is way PG and may not be for you But definitely check this one out if you re a fauxmance fan like me or just looking for a cute romanceOkay so Rebecca The Book Lover s Goodreads review has pointed out Archie s eerie similarity to Harry Styles Whom I now next to nothing about So that s seriously weird and may cause me to reconsider my opinion Read of my reviews on YA Romantics or follow me on Bloglovin The FTC would like you to now that the publisher provided me a free advance copy of this book that free books can be enjoyable or not and other readers may disagree with my opinion This would make THE BEST movie. R But do late night texts and impromptu burrito binges mean he feels the same In the end Rose will have to decide whether to let her fantasy crush go or to risk her reputation to be with the charming handsome scoundrel y but sweet pop star she's grown to love.
SUMMARY Public RelationsThis was the perfect dose of Harry Styles fic that I needed in my life and I m obsessed SO CUTE This book is exactly what you would expect from two authors who work for Buzzfeed There were some good moments in the book but they don t happen until at least 70% into the book Up until then the book is slow and the characters are boring I enjoyed reading about Rose s relationship with her boss but her relationship with her best friend fell flat for me Her relationship with Archie was fun to read but they don t actually get together until about 80% into the book One of my complaints is that Rose s second love interest is an attractive 36 year old surgeon using Tinder to find a relationship If that is how Tinder is actually used then I have been grievously misinformed The number of pop culture references were also a little much Now onto my main criticism of the book Archie is Harry Styles Someone who isn t a fan of One Direction may miss this but it was something I couldn t look past Allow me to list out some things that Archie and Harry have in common 1 "British 2 pop singer 3 long hair usually pulled up into a bun 4 two identical bird pop singer 3 long hair usually pulled up into a bun 4 two identical bird on chest 5 heart tattoo shoulder 6 wears sparkly ankle boots 7 wears a flamingo shirt 8 dated an older woman at the beginning of his career One or two I could ve looked past but it began to become unbearable towards the endIf you are looking for some easy to read chick lit or fanfiction then Public Relations may be for you but I wouldn t risk the timeAnd in case you didn t believe meFlamingosTattoosMy Instagram Blog It was interesting to read a book in the profession I m studying I really enjoyed how it didn t act like it ll be easy However it was a new adult contemporary and I did feel it dragged in some places It was enjoyable though and the writing was funnyNo full review to come I loved this synopsis and even though the cover is sort of off putting I couldn t wait to get into this story I really liked these characters Rose is smart and savvy and honestly a good person She s polite and for the most part has a great inner monologue Of course Archie was adorable and blatantly based on Harry Styles
The Two Of Themtwo of them chemistry and excellent banter I wish the authors would have relied on that to carry the story For me the downside to this story was the pages and pages and paaaaaaaages of text without dialogue It was a lot of telling instead of showing and I found myself skipping passages here and there because I was bored I did enjoy seeing the other side of the machine so to speak and it did have a satisfying ending Overall it was a uick and fairly enjoyable read Huge thanks to Grand Central Publishing for providing the arc free of charge 45 starsPublic Relations is a fun beach read I thoroughly enjoyed the story line and the characters Rose Reed is a fabulous protagonist and I loved reading about all of the behind the scenes shenanigans and use of social media to promote young actors and singers careers I highly recommend this for anyone looking I enjoyed the hell out of this 35 starsReview at Of Pens and PagesI love fake relationship stories especially the ones that involve at least one celebrity Public Relations took a whole new take on the faux mance trope Instead of a couple falling in love while being in a fake relationship the romance blooms between the client and the publicist In this case we have English pop star Archie Fox and PR extraordinaire Rose Reed It was a breath of fresh airFor the first time in her PR career Rose Reed takes the reins and handl. Young PR star Rose Reed is thrown into the big leagues when her boss leaves town the day of the firm's meeting with Archie Fox a young hot internationally famous British singer songwriter The meeting is going badly until Rose suggests a staged romance with up.
