‘Addictive writing wrapped up in a compelling page turner that makes you deeply think and feel’ YOMI ADEGOKE

We give celebrities a power they don’t deserve. Power they haven’t earned. What happens when they exploit it?

Imagine you’ve just spent the night with the most famous man on the planet. Except you don’t quite remember it. That is what happens to Rose, a twenty-something woman who seemingly has everything going for her.

Working for one of the most powerful news outlets in the country, Rose spends her days doing PR for glossy magazines. There are tedious spreadsheets, fashion divas, and many A-list parties. It’s at one of those parties where she meets Milo Jax, the world-famous, globally adored, British pop sensation. An unlikely flirtation turns into an even more unlikely evening and then Rose wakes up, unable to piece it all together. What happens next changes everything.

Gold Rush is a story about consent, celebrity culture, and trying to figure out where women fit in a world that consistently devalues and disrespects their bodies.

MEDIA REVIEWS

‘Addictive writing wrapped up in a compelling page turner that makes you deeply think and feel’ Yomi Adegoke, author of The List 'I raced through Gold Rush, a clever, nuanced, and perceptive excavation of celebrity and consent' Louise O'Neill, author of Idol 'A triumph of a debut – I finished this in a day. Utterly addictive, beautifully written and perfectly paced. Olivia’s ability to capture the voice of younger women, examining consent and power dynamics is on point' Poorna Bell, author of In Case of Emergency 'Olivia Petter has written the millennial Valley of the Dolls and, like that book, Gold Rush is destined to be both a hit and a classic' Emma Forrest, author of Royals ‘Brilliant in its specificity but universal in feeling, Gold Rush perfectly captures a moment and mood that will resonate with so many women who lived through the last couple of decades and are still wondering why we put up with so much. Powerful, nuanced, richly drawn and skilfully done, it will stay with me for a long time’ Lauren Bravo, author of Preloved 'One to put on your summer books list right now. A must-read story about consent and celebrity culture' Independent

“a perfect book describing sexual experiences and the PR industry”

The first part of this book, which I feel could’ve been discussed in far fewer pages than was written, mainly sets the scene for Rose Martin the fact that she has just broken up with Richard, her long-term boyfriend,... More
