'A charming love story and a ridiculously fun read' Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl

Max Lerner has it all figured out. He's got the girl - his childhood sweetheart Samantha. He's got the job - reporter for a national magazine. Life is sweet. Until his aspiring actress girlfriend leaves him for his childhood hero, Johnny Mars. Can Max win her back by throwing himself into the world of celebrities, hangers on and wannabes? Or will he get more of an education than he bargained for?

Uproariously funny and exquisitely poignant, Leading Man will take you back to your first love, your first heartbreak and the first time your heroes let you down.

Genre: Romance

Praise for this book

"A funny, sharp deconstruction of our fame-obsessed, media-savvy culture, a charming love story, and a ridiculously fun read." - Gillian Flynn
