Description

A digital-age Edith Wharton . . . hilarious, exhilarating, and so, so clever. Kevin Kwan, author of Crazy Rich Asians

A suspenseful, racy, and achingly honest story of the entangled lives of six young women and men as they take Silicon Valley's hottest dating app public.
Tara Taylor runs six miles every morning, never eats after nine p.m., is the first to arrive and last to leave the office, but is starting to wonder why she bothers. When her old Stanford flame, Todd Kent, asks her to join his four-person team handling Hook's IPO, the deal of the decade, she sees her opportunity to break through the glass ceiling and justify six boyfriendless years of sacrifices for her career. And the $14 billion dating app might have more in store for her than a bigger bonus. But that kind of money changes people. When the deal is thrown into a tailspin, Tara and five others will each find out just what they re willing to give up love, family, integrity to get to the top.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
