Feminista by Erica Kennedy
September 8, 2009 - Amy Phelps
A career woman decides maybe it's time to look for a long-term relationship and kids in her future in New York Times bestselling author Erica Kennedy's "Feminista."
Sydney Zamora has been content to be a celebrity journalist for Cachet and has spent her time chasing down the big salary, the next big quote, and living a fashionable New York life. With the help of a wildly popular nutritionist, she's toned down to the perfect dress size and is no longer content wasting time with vapid, but pretty boys. Sydney hates to admit it, but she made need some help with her love life. And what she has put-down her sister for - content on being a fashionable stay-at-home mom - may be what Sydney is looking for now. At least the long-term relationship and kids part.
When Sydney asks for her sister to fix her up with someone, it leads her to Mitzi Berman, a matchmaker for wealthy (male) clientele. Sydney's long had a chip on her shoulder against the rich and glamorous, and Sydney especially doesn't want to do anything against her feminist ideals. But Mitzi may have inadvertently introduced Sydney to the man who is perfect for her - Max Cooper.
Max is the wealthy son of the Harvey department store empire owner and has been content so far to live the rich playboy lifestyle. But his sister, who has been running the empire, has been confined to bed rest with her pregnancy, causing Max to have to finally step up to the plate. When he bumps into Sydney, she mistakenly believes he is doorman at the building and Max, enjoying someone not knowing who he is and tired of golddigging women, doesn't correct her. But while Sydney tries to manage her career, look for her perfect guy, and continues to challenge Max at every turn would she like him if she found out who he really was?
A story of two people that may be perfect for each other despite their differences set amid the flash of New York City, this is a peek into a whole new world.
"Feminista" is published by St. Martin's Press. It is $24.99 and 358 pages long.
