Dawn Hathaway is a realist. She’s not the smartest girl at Allenhurst College. She’s not the prettiest, either. So if she wants to be popular, she’ll need something else: power. What better way to get it than to start a gossip column in the campus newspaper? If she has to commit a few minor crimes in pursuit of the latest scoop, what’s the harm?

Arturo Perez loves being a campus cop. He knows Allenhurst’s nooks and crannies—and lately he’s been finding the campus gossip snooping into every one of them. He can’t deny that he enjoys bantering with the sassy schemer. But he also can’t shake the sense that there’s more going on with Dawn than meets the eye.

When tragedy strikes and Dawn needs help, how far will Art go to protect her?

About the Author

Author Bio: 
Jenny Holiday started writing at age nine when her awesome fourth grade teacher gave her a notebook and told her to start writing some stories. That first batch featured mass murderers on the loose, alien invasions, and hauntings. (Looking back, she’s amazed no one sent her to a kid-shrink.) She’s been writing ever since. After a brief detour to get a PhD in geography, she worked as a professional writer, producing everything from speeches to magazine articles. More recently, her tastes having evolved from alien invasions to happily-ever-afters, she tried her hand at romance. A lifelong city-lover, she lives in Toronto, Canada, with her family. She is represented by Courtney Miller-Callihan of Greenburger Associates.

My Review

Title: The Gossip
Author: Jenny Holiday
Source: NetGalley
Format: Digital ARC

The second entry in the New Wave Newsroom series is just as good as the first!  While connected to the first, The Fixer, through a campus newspaper and setting, this book can easily be read as a standalone so don’t worry if you missed reading the first (but I am sure you’ll want to read the first book and I do recommend it because it is really good).

In The Gossip, we meet Dawn, a college student and writer of the newspaper’s gossip column and Art, a campus security officer.  The book follows the couple’s various run-ins with one another over the years all leading up to a wonderful conclusion where the couple finally discover  and give in to their mutual respect and feelings for each other.

Art always seems to be there for Dawn when she needs him and after one of Dawn’s columns has devastating results, he seems to be the only one who is there.  Together the couple helps one another discover who they want to be as individuals and encourages each other to stand up for themselves.  Despite their age difference and other obstacles that stand in their way, they somehow keep finding their way back to each other.  It is a really touching and sweet romance…with some sexy moments, of course.

As with the first book in the New Wave Newsroom series, The Gossip was also inspired by a song from the 80s, “Total Eclipse of the Heart.”  The song is perfect for this couple and an eclipse plays an important part in the relationship between them.  I am definitely looking forward to reading more of the New Wave Newsroom series.

My Rating: 4 Stars
