Descripción

From the husband and wife writing duo Jennifer Miller and Jason Feifer comes Mr. Nice Guy, a funny and all too real comedy about the pursuit of success in life—and love—in today's working world.

Lucas Callahan, a man who gave up his law degree, fiancée and small-town future for a shot at making it in the Big Apple. He snags an entry-level job at Empire magazine, believing it's only a matter of time before he becomes a famous writer. And then late one night in a downtown bar he meets a gorgeous brunette who takes him home...

Carmen Kelly wanted to be a hard-hitting journalist, only to find herself cast in the role of Empire's sex columnist thanks to the boys' club mentality of Manhattan magazines. Her latest piece is about an unfortunate—and unsatisfying—encounter with an awkward and nerdy guy, who was nice enough to look at but horribly inexperienced in bed.

Lucas only discovers that he's slept with the infamous Carmen Kelly—that is, his own magazine's sex columnist!—when he reads her printed take-down. Humiliated and furious, he pens a rebuttal and signs it, "Nice Guy." Empire publishes it, and the pair of columns go viral. Readers demand more. So the magazine makes an arrangement: Each week, Carmen and Lucas will sleep together... and write dueling accounts of their sexual exploits.

It's the most provocative sexual relationship any couple has had, but the columnist-lovers are soon engaging in more than a war of words: They become seduced by the city's rich and powerful, tempted by fame, and more attracted to each other than they're willing to admit. In the end, they will have to choose between ambition, love, and the consequences of total honesty.

  • Hey, recognize one of those author's names? (The other one is my wife.) This is a brand-new romantic comedy we wrote together — it's about two people who each week sleep together and then critically review each other's performance in a magazine. So, yes, it's not exactly a business book, but I include it here because even the most focused workers need a break. You won't reach peak performance by charging hard 100% of the time. Let the mind relax. Enjoy a story! You'll be fresher tomorrow.

    This book is so fun! It's like a subversive rom-com—kind of like "How to Lose A Guy In 10 Days," with twists. It's about Lucas, an aspiring writer, and Carmen, a jaded sex columnist. They're paired up to write a column for a magazine, in which each week they sleep together and then candidly write about what happened. Honestly I just barreled through this thing. It moves fast, keeps your attention, and has some genuine LOL moments.

    This book is very boring. The main character lacks a personality and there are many unimportant characters he interacts with. I didn’t even finish it.
