"Tweethearts" by Nicole Haddow
Author's Book Description : Jemima Starler loathes her job writing for the pregnancy magazine Placenta Monthly. To break the monotony, she writes scandalous tweets about the magazine industry as her secret online identity, Maghag. Thankfully, she also has her cute and talented housemate, Samson, to keep life interesting.
When her editor stoops to a new ethical low, Jemima's reputation is suddenly on the line. She must find a way to carve out a new career, but it's hard to focus when Samson's mixed signals are driving her crazy. And when her handsome housemate is plucked from obscurity to star on a new reality TV show, everything changes. It's time for Jemima to trust her feelings instead of believing what she sees online, but has she missed her chance?
My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars -- two roommates suddenly realize their feelings for one another under extremely bad circumstances. Will they find a way to officially prove to each other how they feel or will they find they are better off apart?
This entertaining novel throws you into the world of pregnancy magazines and reality television while showing you the power of social media, all centered around Jemima (Jem) and Samsom's lives. At first glance, it seems that Jem and Samson are opposites. Yet as the novel progresses, you can tell that they even each other out in ways neither would have thought until they are forced to stay apart. This novel puts fun twists throughout to elevate the pressure that is put on Samson and Jem once they jump into the world of reality television. In addition, it was fun reading Jem's remarks as @MagHag while she was working at Placenta Monthly. =0)
Along with following Samson and Jem's lives, you also follow Evie's, a recently pregnant ex-girlfriend of an AFL footballer turned reality show host, who turns into one of Jem's good friends as the novel progresses. I really enjoyed her sweet romance with Connor.
Overall, I really liked the flow of this novel and how everything turned out. It gives you a great (sort of) behind-the-scenes look while keeping with the spirit of a contemporary romance. The only thing I wish was that it had an epilogue to show us where Samson and Jem are now if this is going to be the only book they'll have, if not then I can't wait to see where their lives will take them next!
I recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys humorous contemporary romances!

Later, Odette strode back in and shoved Jemima's latte at her. She plonked herself on the couch and waited for the action to happen.
'This is going to take a while. You can go back to the office if it gets too boring,' Jemima suggested.
'Are you kidding? I want to see everything,' Odette argued.
Evie stared ahead in the mirror but couldn't stifle a grin.
Jemima knew this wasn't the time or place to have a debate with Odette, so instead she whipped out her phone and thoughtlessly vented her frustration on Twitter:
If you like a side of attitude with your morning coffee, get a personal assistant. ~ within Chapter 9

'We should do a Facebook poll,' Owen suggested. 'When will our executive produce's head explode? Three p.m., six p.m. or ten p.m.? You decide!'
'I reckon six p.m.' Jemima laughed as she scrolled through the contestant Twitter accounts to see what they'd been up to lately. ~ within Chapter 32
