---

A bold, swoon-worthy and utterly modern debut novel about truth, fame and privilege - and how we love now.

Whitman 'Win' Tagore and Leo Milanowski are the greatest love story of our time. International movie star meets the beautiful son of a millionaire. Their kisses write headlines and their fights break the internet. Nobody needs to know it's not real.

Win knows that Hollywood demands perfection - especially from a woman of colour.

Leo just wants to enjoy life, and shift press attention away from his dysfunctional family.

Together they control the narrative.

Except this time, on the shores of Saint-Tropez, Leo is hiding a secret that is about to send Win's world spinning. Now everyone's dream couple must confront the messy reality of their relationship. Just as they're starting to realise that they might actually be falling in love...

MEDIA REVIEWS
A pure delight! Effortlessly cool, razor sharp and crazy fun - I couldn't put it down. It is Notting Hill for 2021, an absolute crowd pleaser -- Taylor Jenkins Reid

A glamorous power ride through fame, misogyny and racism, with a swoony romance -- Julie Cohen
An absolutely stellar debut with tension that crackles and prose that sings... the complex, Hollywood love story we've all been waiting for -- Emily Henry

A glittering, swoon-worthy love story that's also about the intersections of power, representation, fame and privilege.

A book to read in the sun with a glass of wine and nothing else to do all day. Fun, sexy and totally gripping -- Laura Kay
A sexy, scorching treat - fresh and ultra modern, I devoured it -- Victoria Gosling
