Feisty New Yorker Kimberly Long runs the most popular chick-lit book blog on the web, loves playing house with her sexy lawyer boyfriend, Nicholas, and is finally pursuing her lifelong dream of becoming a published author. At first glance, her life is worthy of five pink champagne flutes. But is there more to the story than meets the eye?
After hearing the phrase "chick lit is dead" more times than she's read The Devil Wears Prada, Kim is driven to desperate measures, seeking advice from up-and-coming chick-lit author Hannah Marshak, her high school nemesis and resident "mean girl". As if Kim doesn't have enough on her plate balancing her secretarial duties with her blog, Pastel is the New Black, shrugging off the growing pile of agent rejections, and keeping her best friend from turning green over Kim's budding friendship with Hannah, Nicholas is so blinded by his career ambitions, he doesn't see that their home sweet home could use more than a dash of sugar.
This is the year when all of Kim's dreams - professional and romantic - are supposed to come true, but will her story have a happily ever after or will Kim end up unpublished and all alone?
