Summary
When an aspiring L.A. scriptwriter falls head-over-heels for a bossy and beautiful movie star after a devastating break-up, the two take a risk on love and cast themselves as the leading ladies of their own star-struck romance in this sweet and spirited love story from critically-acclaimed writer Amy Spalding in her adult debut.

"Pure romance magic." --Christina Lauren, New York Times bestselling author of Love & Other Words

"I loved how joyful, how thoughtful, and how real For Her Consideration was." -- New York Times bestselling author Jasmine Guillory

Since a crushing breakup three years ago, Nina Rice has written romance, friends, her dreams of scriptwriting for TV, and even LA proper out of her life. Instead, she's safely out in the suburbs in her aunt's condo working her talent agency job from home, managing celebrity email accounts, and certain that's plenty of writing--and plot--for her life. But a surprise meeting called by Ari Fox, a young actress on everyone's radar, stirs up all kinds of feelings Nina thought she'd deleted for good . . .

Ari is sexy, out and proud, and a serious control freak, according to Nina's boss. She has her own ideas about how Nina should handle her emails--and about getting to know her ghostwriter. When she tells Nina she should be writing again, Nina suddenly finds it less scary to revisit her abandoned life than seriously consider that Ari is flirting with her. Between reconnecting with her old crew and working on a new script, a relationship with a movie star seems like something she'll definitely mess up--but what could be more worth the risk?

Amy Spalding's For Her Consideration is full of heat and heart as Nina learns that her story just might include the kind of love that lasts.

"A warm celebration of Los Angeles, chosen family, and learning how to love and be loved." --Cameron Esposito, bestselling author of Save Yourself

"An optimistic, empathetic choice for readers, which highlights queer women pursuing creative careers and showcases a strong emotional growth arc." - Library Journal

"A cozy comfort-read." - Publishers Weekly
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Spalding makes her adult debut (after the YA No Boy Summer) with a sweet, queer contemporary that gives equal weight to familial and platonic love as to the central romance. Nina Rice works for a Hollywood talent agency through which she meets and starts to date up-and-coming queer actor Ari Fox. Despite the glossy L.A. setting, the ensuing love story feels like small-town romance because of Spalding's focus on the cozy local spots familiar to Nina's close-knit community. The warmth and comfort of familiarity pervade as the women go on dates and spend time with Nina's friends and family, especially her beloved aunt Lorna. The conflict feels similarly low-key: due to a bad past relationship, Nina fears that she is "toxic"--when really she just needs therapy, something it takes her hip 30-something friends perhaps an unbelievable amount of time to suggest. Even so, the steady support of Nina's chosen family alongside the seemingly inevitable romance with Ari make this a cozy comfort-read. Agent: Kate Testerman, KT Literary. (Mar.)"
