About this deal

They have staff and mansions and bigger budgets and perks, and relatability is created instead of authentic. Though no one knows that she is behind the account, its newfound success quickly wreaks havoc on her real life. After finishing this I really wanted to know who the boss depicted in this novel was based on in real life, if anyone knows please DM me, you can remain Anon! Celebrity gossip is very entertaining, but the way it was written into the storyline was frankly jarring.

A sharp page-turner that’s utterly of-the-moment but also a timeless story of love and self-discovery. Plus, there's a steamy new love interest who she meets through her online persona—except she has no idea if she can truly trust his motives. The book also includes a couple of sex scenes for the romance b plot that was boiling under the surface for most of the book. I will stand by the fact that a good plot line is a thousand times more satisfying than a badly written sex scene until I DIE. But when the account grows overnight and, even wilder, when she starts getting gossip from fans and insiders — juicy gossip—she has to face facts: her Instagram is now famous.But as the account grows and becomes more and more famous, she has to wonder: is it — the fame, the insider access, the escape from real life — really worth losing everything she has? DeuxMoi now has over two million followers on Instagram alone and regularly shares celebrity sightings and stories. It's just a way to blow off steam after a terrible, terrible day at work where her nightmarish boss screams at her and blames her for some 18-year-old influencer's screw-up. Her boss wonders why she’s disappearing on the job, her friends are increasingly irritated by her dedication to the account, and she has celebrities, investors, and journalists approaching her with bright-eyed interest. interesting if you're a long time follower of the account, was a lot of fun figuring out who the real-life versions of the fictionalized posts were (weird mix of real celeb names and fake one?

Counterfeit by Kirstin Chen, also by William Morrow and out this year was a better time spent, though that has more in common with Cover Story than it does here. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Fletcher Peters, of The Daily Beast, criticized the acquisition, writing that while she did not believe the DeuxMoi account to be actively malicious, the account's sharing of private details "is not the type of behavior that should be rewarded with a book, nor a TV show, nor the gorges of followers she's amassed on Instagram.

I would have liked to have seen more time with Cricket’s friends and her self esteem building instead. What a fun deep dive into celebrity culture, the cutthroat world of fashion and the digital landscape. Honestly, this book was a very pleasant surprise and I definitely recommend it if you need something unique and fun.

I know this was more than likely ghostwritten, but I still can't believe Melissa probably approved this and thus made me and everyone else read about someone describing her masturbating. Her boss wonders why she's disappearing on the job, her friends are increasingly irritated by her dedication to the account, and she has celebrities, investors, and journalists approaching her with bright-eyed interest.

When she drunkenly restarts her old Instagram as a source of celebrity gossip, it gains more traction – and problems – than she ever imagined. We then witness how she struggles to keep her identity secret as she continues in her regular life, working as an assistant to a famous celebrity stylist who also happens to be an abusive boss. Having to read about a fictionalized Deuxmoi (but still Deuxmoi) having poorly written and cringe-worthy phone sex with this man and masturbating a couple of times was actually horrible. When she near gets caught she doesn't care about them but focuses mainly on her own career and how it will be ruined even though she works for a horrid fashion stylist.
