Description

Fans of Abby Jimenez and Meryl Wilsner will fall in love with this hilarious and refreshingly authentic novel about second chances, pugs, and finding the perfect muse . . .

Business consultant Rose Josten might not have officially reached “pug lady” middle age, but she’s already got the pugs—along with their little Gucci coats and trash-lovin’ appetites. Still, life is good, with her work, her sisters, and a secret hobby creating incredibly tactile (if surprisingly sexy) mindfulness videos. So why does it feel like it’s not quite enough? Which is exactly when former filmmaker Ash Stewart enters camera left, and Rose’s world suddenly goes full technicolor . . .

Ash never looks at anyone. Not since her ex ripped her heart from her chest in Spielberg-esque style, crushing Ash’s reputation, dreams, and directorial career in one brutal blow. But Rose is altogether different. She’s curvy, beautiful, and just so damn put together. And her business expertise might be Ash’s best bet for getting her last film—and her last chance—financed. Now if they can just keep their attraction under wraps, Ash’s lost dream could finally come true. But are they creating movie magic . . . or setting the stage for disaster?
Fans of Abby Jimenez and Meryl Wilsner will fall in love with this hilarious and refreshingly authentic novel about second chances, pugs, and finding the perfect muse . . .

The sapphic novel I didn’t realize I’d been waiting for 😍 Behind the Scenes is a beautiful story of vulnerability and healing, but also has incredible sexual representation (including sex toy rep 🥵) that made it impossible to put down. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the advanced copy.

Karelia Stetz-Waters has a great writing style, it was a really well done romance novel, I was invested in what was going on and loved the romance aspect. The characters were fun and well done, I enjoyed getting to know them. It does what I wanted from this type of book. I was never bored and thoroughly enjoyed the journey.

"She wanted to talk to Ty. She hadn’t used the group chat to tell her sisters about her night with Ash. Ash had been vulnerable, and she’d trusted Rose."

Loved Behind the Scenes!
Ash, disgraced movie director, needs help getting her movie on the big screen and Rose, a star business consultant, is exactly who she needs, in more way than one.
I loved seeing how Ash and Rose both overcame their fears with each other. From their meet-cute to their struggles trusting each other, I couldn’t put this book down!

This was such a cute story about two people who were absolutely made for each other!

I really enjoyed the behind the scenes look at how films are funded. I also really enjoyed the supporting characters, and the ASMR storyline was fantastic, but the real star of the show was the romance. It was so refreshingly healthy.

I loved how sweet and patient Rose was with Ash. I loved how supportive they were of each other’s passions and how much they wanted the other to succeed. I was just lovely.

Thank you so much to Forever and NetGalley for this ARC. All opinions are my own.
