Description - The Underwriting by Michelle Miller
Get rich. Get laid. Get even. Todd Kent is young, hot, and on his way to the top of Wall Street when the eccentric founder of Hook, the popular new dating app, handpicks him to lead its floating on the stock exchange. Given just two months to pull it off, Todd and his investment banking team - brainy Neha, party-boy Beau, and old college flame Tara Taylor - race to close the $14 billion deal of the decade. It's also the chance of a lifetime for Tara, who sees her opportunity to break through the glass ceiling and justify six years of sacrifices for her career. But nothing is what it seems in Silicon Valley, and when tragedy strikes there's no telling where the sparks will fly. 'Michelle Miller's debut novel reads like a salacious, ripped-from-the headlines tell-all of Manhattan's young, wealthy, and uber-successful...Get ready to settle in-you won't be able to put down this book.' Lauren Weisberger, New York Times bestselling author of The Devil Wears Prada 'The Underwriting is the best one night stand I've ever had. Witty, sexy and sharp - I'd definitely call the next day. An authentically-hip novel with razor sharp characters which make it (in banking terms) a STRONG BUY.' Turney Duff, New York Times bestselling author of The Buy Side 'Reading this book was such a thrill, I was as sleep deprived as Michelle Miller's Adderall-fueled characters but having way more fun. Like a digital age Edith Wharton, Miller brilliantly chronicles the clash of cultures between high finance and high tech with perfect intricacy and nuance. Hilarious, exhilarating, and so, so clever, I'd rate The Underwriting a STRONG BUY!' Kevin Kwan, bestselling author of Crazy Rich Asians
