The Receptionist

We rated this book:


A young bombshell, a sex-crazed market researcher, and his top Hollywood agent wife are at the heart of the taut love-triangle thriller that is Kate Myles’ debut novel, The Receptionist.

Emily Webb, agent to some of the largest egos and careers in Hollywood, married Doug Markham because he was the right fit at the right time. Handsome, cultured, independent, and rich. He ticked the boxes that made her more palatable to her clients and, for a time, he gave her everything she’d ever wanted. Their stunning oceanfront home, designer clothes, and high-end cars made everything look perfect—from the outside. There were other women, Emily was certain, and a great deal of distrust, but rocking the boat didn’t make sense when she was poised to take her largest client, Dr. Maryn, into the twenty-first century via a tech venture with Doug’s company.

The unraveling begins with Chloe—a gorgeous blonde with an unstable history and an attraction to Doug that he can’t resist. As their affair hits full throttle, and Emily realizes everything she has to lose, there comes a moment of truth. Will she let him get away with his cheating as long as she remains unscathed, or will she finally stand up for herself?

The gorgeous descriptions of the lavish life of Doug and Emily will scratch the Sex and the City itch of some readers, while Chloe’s mental breakdown keeps you on the edge of your seat for every single page of The Receptionist.
