RED HOT BOOK OF THE WEEK: Between You and Me

New York Times bestselling authors Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus are back with a red hot read, Between You and Me (June 12). Juicy and utterly delicious, it should be a staple in your beach bag this summer. It’s definitely in ours! — and was the obvious choice for our latest Red Hot Book of the week.

Between You and Me by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus

Any novel described like this automatically peaks our interest — one of the world’s highest-grossing celebrities and mom of two is legally controlled by her father and future husband. Come backstage…

If this sounds like the life of a famous blonde pop-star we’ve all followed in the tabloids, it’s because it is (Britney Spears). Emma Mc Laughlin and Nicola Kraus re-imagine the private journey of how an adult megastar could be so controlled in their highly-anticipated novel,  Between You and Me.

If you’re a fan of pop culture, you’ll love this novel inspired by the life of mega pop-star Britney Spears, a fictional examination of the life of a pop icon. Emma and Nicola ask the questions, “What if you weren’t judging Spears’ life from the sidelines? What if life had put you in the getaway car, the hair salon, the hotel hallway right along with her?” Their novel questions what — and who — is responsible for a celebrity’s destruction.

About Between You and Me

What happens when you are followed by millions… and loved by none?

27-year-old Logan Wade is trying to build a life for herself far from her unhappy childhood in Oklahoma. Then she gets the call that her famous cousin needs a new assistant— an offer she can’t refuse.

Logan hasn’t seen Kelsey in person since their parents separated them as kids. In the meantime, Kelsey Wade has grown into Fortune Magazine‘s most powerful celebrity. But their reunion is quickly overshadowed by the toxic dynamic between Kelsey and her parents as Logan discovers that, beneath the glossy facade, the wounds that caused them to be wrenched apart so many years ago have insidiously warped into a show-stopping family business.

As Kelsey tries desperately to break away and grasp at a “real” life, beyond the influence of her parents and managers, she takes one catastrophic misstep after another, and Logan must question if their childhood has left them both too broken to succeed. Logan risks everything to hold on, but when Kelsey unravels in the most horribly public way, Logan finds that she will ultimately have to choose between rescuing the girl she has always protected… and saving herself.

Perfect for your beach bag

Grab a copy of Between You and Me and put it in your beach bag this summer. A truly satisying read for a hot summer day!
