Trust in Advertising

Trust in Advertising - Victoria Michaels This is a decently entertaining story. The author does a good job of building and growing the relationship between Lexi and Vincent and I like how both characters are better and stronger because of it. And as she mentions it more that a few times in the book, the characters do have a witty banter between them. The sub characters are also fun.That being said, having lived in SF and having spent most of that time in a career in advertising, Victoria Michaels doesn't really take advantage of either parts for the story. SF was a backdrop that could've been any city and truly, her depiction of how things are done at an agency was stereotypical at best...but pretty much just incorrect.Also, the over-the-top character of Jade...infuriating, certainly. But the worst part was how we're expected to just accept and believe (with not quite strong enough explanation and reasoning) why Vincent would stay with this woman. The worst part of the book was the epilogue. That ending could NOT have happened in the real ad world. For a book that's not in the "fantasy" genre, the reality of it is a stretch.
