Teaser Tuesday: the Agency by Ally O'Brien

TEASER TUESDAYS : Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading ~ I always look forward to reading everyone's teasers!

My 2 “Teaser” Sentences for today: (Well, a little more than 2. . . )


"Oh, haven't I told you yet? I thought I had. I am just so scattered today. It's David Milton, that awful boy. Remember I told you I was having lunch with him yesterday? He's Tom Milton's son, and Tom was a gem, so I can't even begin to believe that his flesh and blood could do something so horrible. To lie like that! He should be ashamed."

"What did he say?" I asked.

"He's threatening me! Blackmailing me!"

~ p. 113, “The Agency" by Ally O'Brien

If you liked the teaser - enter my giveaway here. The publisher is letting me give away 15 galley copies!! Read below for a better description of the book.



About the book (from the publisher): 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 of 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.

Tess has another little complication, too. She’s sleeping with men on both sides of the Atlantic who are in bed with the women who are trying to sink her.

Can Tess jump ship without losing her clients and breaking her heart? Or will she lose everything before finding out if she really has what it takes to do what she’s always wanted?

There’s risk and reward in this wickedly funny novel that turns the world of agenting inside out and lays bare all the ambition, sex, adrenaline, bad luck, and good luck at the center of one young woman’s success.
