Theodosia and her bestie Sam are former high school outcasts who find escapism in a popular TV show called Suffer about a victims’ rights advocate named Marcia Suffer.

When the TV network that owns Suffer announces a contest -- the chance to meet the show’s star, actress Roxy DeVine -- Theo and Sam pull out all the stops to win. These days, Theo needs a win – any win -- because lately life has been dealing her nothing but suffering.

After all, the girl’s got a lot on her plate: attending college, working part-time gigs to survive, and acting as caretaker to both her younger sister and an aging aunt. A little Hollywood magic is just what she needs.

As much as Theo and Sam adore Roxy DeVine, the rest of Hollywood despises the diva actress. In fact, rumors swirl that Roxy’s career is on the chopping block.

When Roxy DeVine goes missing after the show’s season finale, it’s anyone’s guess what happened to her!

Superfans Theo and Sam know more than they’re letting on.

Wow... this book was so entertaining and I need more! A.C. Sloan is so creative and did such a good job with this plot and the storyline. I loved how the story was told, as everything just unfolded perfectly and made the story an interesting one to read. I loved all of the characters, especially since they all had their own distinct personalities and traits. It's always so fun when authors are able to capture different personalities for different characters so that they can relate to a variety of people, which is exactly what A.C. Sloan did.

I also loved all of the little flashbacks for all the different characters! They meshed together so well and told so many different stories throughout the main one. It was so interesting to learn more about each character's background and why they made certain decisions. Overall, this book was so well written and such a fun read. It's funny and a rollercoaster, to say the least, but it's such a good book. Definitely recommend!

Thank you NetGalley and BooksGoSocial for this free arc in exchange for my honest review.

When they enter a contest to try to win a chance to watch the finale with their hero Roxy divine Theo thinks they have no chance, but little does she know morale May hates Roxy and wants to send her to the home of the worst most homely people she can find and she deems the suffragettes of Arlita, The winners. Not only does the suffragettes YouTube channel go from 12 views to millions but they even have Roxy Divine tweeting about them.

I read this book in one sitting, the storyline is relatable and engaging and humorous. I found it really hard to put it down.

Suffer had all the fun of a rom-com book but focused on friendships and family instead of romance. I loved the twists throughout the book and thought that the characters were extremely relatable. Overall, this is a great, quick beach read.
