Their kisses write headlines and their fights break the internet. Whitman ‘Win’ Tagore and Leo Milanowski – the greatest love story of our time.

As a woman of colour in Hollywood, Win knows she must work harder than everyone else to control her public image. Whenever she nears scandal, she calls in Leo to divert attention – and the cameras – with their earth-shattering chemistry and picture-perfect romance.

Nobody needs to know it’s a lie.

But the truth about their relationship isn’t the only secret Leo’s keeping. And, as the line between performance and reality begins to blur, can Win risk taking a chance on real love?

A bold, wickedly observant and utterly modern novel about truth, fame and privilege – and how we love now.
