Review

"Roesel's debut novel packs drama and romance into an alternately intense and lighthearted story about what it's like to work for a top rated news station while maintaining friendships and a love life in the cutthroat world." KIRKUS Reviews.

If you have ever worked in a newsroom, lived in Miami or wanted to do either then you need to read this book. Its a quirky and insightful representation of life in Miami and in the world of local news. Some of the insights are squirm-worthy for those of us in the business but over all its just a fun, fast read. Take it to the beach and enjoy!

Cindy Roesel tells it like it is in "Viewer Discretion Advised." She gives us a sizzling insider's view of the local TV news biz with great characters, a marvelous sense of place, and plenty of romance and intrigue. Go behind the scenes and see what it's like on both sides of the camera. You'll never look at your local news programs the same way. And her heroine will have you humming "I get knocked down, and I get up again ...."

If you are in the corporate world, a female, and trying to get ahead you MUST read this book. I worked for a Fortune 500 my entire career and this book is a textbook case of what happens inside the walls of corporations. The book is well-written, fast paced, sexy, cut-throat competitive, and realistic. I read this book in one sitting because I was dying to find out what happened next. Cindy has cracked the glass ceiling and all the shattered glass that goes with it. I hope women will read this book, wise up, play hard-ball like men, and when that happens we will see more female executives in the ranks. This book is an excellent summer read and I recommend it highly.

News director Charley Thomas is a tough cookie who knows how to roll with the punches, so she doesn't panic when she's fired from her job in LA. She picks up stakes and her adorable pup, Princess, and relocates to Miami, where she gets a job at a station run by a mega-jerk called "The Velvet Ax."

Charley has to hit the ground running at WCAR when she's faced with everything from plane crashes to cat fights and boinking amongst the anchors. I love a book that immerses me in the protagonist's job, and Viewer Discretion Advised plopped me right down in the entertainingly fast-paced, cutthroat world of local news. I could certainly understand why Charley needed to keep a bottle of vodka in the mini-fridge in her office. Such a high-stress gig would drive anyone to drink! Could Charley take her news team to the top without sacrificing her principles and her personal life? That was the big question in Viewer Discretion Advised, and I enjoyed reading about the journey of this woman who had just as much heart as she did ambition.

Although the book focused a lot on Charley's career, the author still managed to squeeze in some sizzling scenes with the heroine and her LA friend-with-benefits, the super sexy and so-rich-he-doesn't-have-to-work Oz (Described as being blond-haired and blue-eyed with a 6'4 Adonis body, I kept picturing the character as Chris Hemsworth, which was a very good thing.) But the parameters of the Oz/Charley relationship weren't clearly defined and they were living on opposite coasts, so I wondered if they were just a fling or if things would work out for them in the end. I won't say what happens between them, but I liked that the author gave Charley a couple of other viable (and unusual) love interest options.

Format: Paperback
Charley Thomas is moving to Miami to take the news director job at WCAR, after being let go from her previous position. Everybody tells her she's crazy for wanting to work with Jonathan Lefton, AKA "The Velvet Ax."

As it turns out, Jonathan is far from the top of her worries. In between handling anchor hissy fits, technical difficulties, and a scandal involving one of her least favorite people, Charley is also being pursued by a cop with a questionable past. Soon her personal and professional lives are becoming one and the same, with Charley left trying to sort it all out.

As you can tell by the several weeks it took me to finish this book, I didn't really find it a page turner. There were a lot of different events going on all at once, and the story moved very fast.

Charley is a single thirty-something, a little less than thin, who lives with her dog. She has a longstanding "thing" with the laid back Oz...a thing that seems to be mostly about sex. Charley was OK as first, but as the book progressed I started to find her immature and a little irritating. She made some bad decisions. Readers were inexplicably introduced to the random thoughts that flew through her brain, including but not limited to the need to redecorate her office. I appreciated her work ethic, but just didn't find her particularly deep as a character.

As I said, the book had so many things going on that it seemed one crisis was barely over when another one popped up. In other words, to me the entire book was one big string of kind of unrelated events...except for the fact that they all involved Charley. I think for me, what the book was missing was a sense of cohesiveness. I felt there was no central plot or conflict.

Ever wonder what happens behind the scenes after a TV station's newsroom cameras stop rolling? Wonder no more! In Cindy Roesel's debut novel, "Viewer Discretion Advised" readers get an insider's look at all the drama and fast-paced actions of broadcast news business.

The characters are well developed and likeable. I love the confidence the main character, Charlene "Charley", exudes whether in her professional or personal affairs; however, she is also compassionate and caring as well. You can tell this story is based off of Cindy's real life newsroom experiences. There is an authenticity to it you just can't fake. For those that blush easily, consider yourself warned that this book has some hot romance moments... this book is called "Viewer Discretion Advised" for a reason!

I'm so glad I got the chance to read this book and look forward to seeing what Cindy has in store for readers in future.
