June 2015 eBook of the Month.

An entertaining, bold and glamorous express of a novel with a fiery steel smouldering beneath the surface. Fans of Louise Bagshawe will know that she is now writing as Louise Mensch; her very first bookCareer Girls is the predecessor to ‘Career Game’, however this can easily be read as a standalone novel. Topaz and Rowena are now in their forties with teenage children, both are at the top of their respective business empires however enemies are waiting to pounce and the pair need to be right at the top of their game. The author acknowledges that this is a world where happily ever after isn't a given and details two strong, independent and successful women, who are fighting to keep their families and careers intact. This is escapism of the best kind, powerful glitzy yet human characters, oodles of steamy sauce and a fight for survival in the boardroom - what a treat. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

Her old rival, now best friend, Topaz Rossi is a magazine guru in New York, heading up American Magazines. Bright and energetic as the city itself. But things are changing: Rowena senses a shift both in business and on the home front. And Topaz can't work out why the circulation figures are dropping. Something's up. Paradise is a place that can bring trouble...
