America's Next Reality Star

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.



Twenty-four-year-old Jen Reid had her life in good shape: an okay job, a tiny-cute Seattle apartment, and a great boyfriend almost ready to get serious. In a flash it all came apart. Single, unemployed, and holding an eviction notice, who has time to remember trying out for a reality show? Then the call comes, and Jen sees her chance to start over—by spending her summer on national TV.

Luckily The Fishbowl is all about puzzles and games, the kind of thing Jen would love even if she wasn’t desperate. The cast checks all the boxes: cheerful, quirky Birdie speaks in hashtags; vicious Ariana knows just how to pout for the cameras; and corn-fed “J-dawg” plays the cartoon villain of the house. Then there’s Justin, the green-eyed law student who always seems a breath away from kissing her. Is their attraction real, or a trick to get him closer to the $250,000 grand prize? Romance or showmance, suddenly Jen has a lot more to lose than a summer . . .

Customer Reviews

Reality, romance, and so much more...

You don't have to be a fan of reality shows to adore America's Next Reality Star. Witty, fast-paced, and loads of fun, Laura Heffernan kept me turning pages with cheeky banter, romantic tension, and a cast of characters whose antics had me both cringing and cracking up. The teaser for Sweet Reality promises even more fun and games in Book 2. I can't wait to read it!

Fans of Big Brother will Love this!

If you love reality TV (especially Big Brother), then you'll love this book! It's a light-hearted read with a perfect amount of romance wrapped in that is perfect to load up the kindle before heading off on your vacation or if you just need a little escape from the day-to-day.

Fast paced and funny!

I’m not a big fan of “chick lit”, but I’ve read plenty of it when I needed a break from my usual classical lit or sci-fi adventures. Heffernan’s debut novel is smart, charming, well-paced, and funny enough that I scared my cats with bursts of laughter on several occasions. It’s clear that she spent a lot of time researching how reality television works, allowing her to create a realistic world that left me feeling like I really had been “backstage” on a reality show. I found myself wishing the characters would just freaking talk to one another instead of making assumptions, but I feel that way about every romance story ever – including the ones in my own actual life – so I suppose that means that her love interest storyline is pretty believable, too! I can’t wait to see where Jen Reid’s life takes her in the sequel!

(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.)
