Everyone needs a safe space.
She’s nineteen. Her show has been cancelled and now she’s going to play the lead in a new prime time drama series, but is the world ready to take her seriously, or will she be typecast as the cute tween queen forever?
Her network has decided to be aggressive and has invested millions of dollars in an ad campaign for her show, money she’s not sure she can earn back. Her co-star can’t stand her, and the writing for the show turns out to be poor at best. The only reason Lizzie didn’t walk away from the job offer to begin with is because she’s broke, the victim of a decade of bad money management.
Then there’s Devon, the personal trainer at her gym. Arrogant and abrasive, he’s the last guy she should ever find attractive, but she has a hopeless crush on him anyway, and he doesn’t seem entirely disinterested either. In fact, sometimes he’s downright sweet to her. If only he weren’t an untamable bad boy who uses and dumps women like they’re nothing. Though Lizzie’s friends warn her to stay away, he’s the only person who can create what she needs: a safe space. But is there any way she can break him of his years' long habit of being a user?
2 winners will receive a prize pack that includes: a signed paperback of the book, one pen of the winner's choice from EM's Etsy store (www.etsy.com/shop/EMTippettsBookDesign), and coupons for free Pie Pops.
Top 10 with Lizzie:
1. Favorite movie/actor/actress?
Dakota Fanning, because I want my career to stay as strong as hers has.
2. Favorite song/singer?
Zach Wechsler of Triple Cross, my best friend.
3. Favorite place you would love to visit?
I’ve been all over the world, but never had time to sightsee, so there are too many places to name. Rome, San Francisco, Sydney, Tokyo, any of those.
4. One item you can not live without?
My phone! It’s my lifeline.
5. Who would you like to meet? (dead or alive)
My father. I don’t know if he’s dead or alive. I don’t even know his name.
6. Favorite car?
My pink Corvette works for me right now, even if it is a kind of silly color.
7. Guilty pleasure?
J.C.’s Pie Pops. So not allowed in my diet!
8. Favorite author and/book?
Embarrassing as it is to admit, I don’t really read books.
9. Do you collect anything?
Stuffed animals from fans who’ve passed on. It’s a kind of morbid collection, but I can’t say no when the family tells me their child wanted me to have their most precious possession.
10. Favorite color?
Pink. No really, it’s not just branding. I love it.
