KIRKUS REVIEW

Former agent Marr’s titillating debut shows four female insiders battling for respect in male-dominated, youth-obsessed Tinseltown.

Producer Lydia is the senior member of the team putting together Seven Minutes Past Midnight. She’s traded in motherhood to pursue her artistic vision, but her venomous new boss will do anything to undermine the movie. Seven Minutes must turn a big profit, or Lydia’s a Hollywood has-been. Jessica needs this movie to solidify her position among the town’s power agents. Her calculated and intelligent stewardship isn’t enough to keep her A-list talent faithful; Jessica needs to continue getting clients the very best roles, and two of her most important stars are involved in this project. One of them is Celeste, an award-winning actress who must show audiences she’s still smoking hot and can compete with the latest batch of instant teenaged stars. Midwestern import Mary Anne, newest member of the girls club, came to L.A. to pursue her dream of being a professional screenwriter. A well-reviewed movie will prove that she really does belong. In addition to all the juicy intrigues surrounding production of Seven Minutes Past Midnight, Marr offers plenty of steamy romance. Each woman gets a string of lovers—some winners, some losers—in her bawdy romp.

Knowing fun from a veteran, closing with “an excerpt from the next Hollywood Girls Club book.”
