9780312544379: Waxed: A Novel

Waxed is the story of three relationship-challenged sisters working together at New York's hottest waxing salon, catering to socialites, actresses, and regular folk alike.

Yank. On the surface, glamorous Carolina Impresario---big sister and owner of Impresarios---unapologetically wants it all, but secretly she is caught between her successful boyfriend and the only man she has ever truly loved.

Pluck. After a painful divorce, middle sister Anna reluctantly reenters the workforce and puts on a brave face while attempting to raise her children, one of whom is decidedly different.

Tear. Newlywed Sofia is a hybrid of her two older sisters: She loves the idea of a domestic life like Anna's, but is entranced by New York nightlife and a new best friend, resulting in some major complications at home.

Amid the sticky confines of a perfectly manicured world, these three sisters search for love, friendship, and better versions of themselves.

Waxed is a funny and heartfelt novel that illustrates the lengths to which some women will go to present a seemingly flawless exterior, even when it involves pain. . . .

About the Author:

A former New York City publicist, Robert Rave has worked on numerous public relations campaigns and high-profile special events in the lifestyle, fashion, nightlife, and entertainment industries. He is the author of Spin and Waxed and currently lives in Los Angeles.

Review:

“Intoxicating and irreverent, Rave's lowdown on an upscale Manhattan waxing salon...exposes the secrets of three sisters whose lives are filled with dishy complications....Rave waxes eloquent in this hilarious soap as the sisters become independent women with some outside guidance, friendship, and inner musings. ” ?Publishers Weekly

“Rave's second novel (after Spin, 2009) of love, sex, and families is dishy and fun. The perfect summer read.” ?Booklist

“[A] witty and smart look at fast lane life in contemporary Manhattan...The story follows three sisters--born into a middle-class Queens family--who work together at a chic meatpacking district salon owned by the oldest of the trio. Rave brings these three women--and their friends and the men they love--to vibrant life in a juicy novel that most readers will probably finish off in a few visits to the beach...Waxed is a treat that delivers a completely satisfying finale for all three Impresario sisters while leaving the door open for a sequel.” ?Connecticut Post

“Rave gets it totally right in this charming and hilarious novel about love, sisterhood, and dating. . . . The perfect summer beach read and a ton of fun!” ?Beth Harbison, New York Times bestselling author of Hope in a Jar

“With its inside views of a corrupt yet glamorous lifestyle and its witty tone, the book is sure to please fans of the subgenre.” ?Publishers Weekly on Spin

Spin by Robert Rave is a delightfully snarky and hilariously biting peek into the world of high-stakes public relations. With scathing wit and a gimlet eye toward celebrity culture, Rave serves up a delicious tale of rivalry, revenge, and redemption. I adored Spin and didn't want to see it end. You need two things in your beach bag this summer---sunblock and Spin.” ?Jen Lancaster, New York Times bestselling author of Pretty in Plaid, on Spin

“Robert Rave takes you on a behind-the-scenes walk on the dark side of all the grit, vanity, and back-stabbing of the PR world, and in the end you will be left ‘spinning.” ?Amanda Goldberg and Ruthanna Khalighi Hopper, New York Times bestselling authors of Celebutantes, on Spin

“Robert Rave offers an X-ray look into the wicked perversions that make up the celebrity PR world. Dirty, sexy, funny. And compulsively readable.” ?J.J. Salem, author of Tan Lines, on Spin
