When we first meet Emma Hernan, she is being bombarded by Christine and the story of one of their exes. (Who’s lying, and who’s telling the truth? I don’t want to put that out there, because I don’t even know, and it’s not something we should worry about.) But I wanted to pair up Emma with Jamie Wesley’s book because I feel like Jada Townsend-Matthews, the heroine in the book, can relate to Emma’s introduction in Selling Sunset.
In this novel, Jada is enemy number one in America after turning down a proposal on a reality dating show. She’s the most reviled woman in her country, and she’s tired of it. People don’t know what happens behind the scenes in television, and Jada is living proof of that. The good thing is that, because of her grandmother, she starts working at a cute cupcake shop — whose owner is none other than a handsome football player named Donovan.
