This program is read by Matt Godfrey with the authors.

From the husband and wife writing duo Jennifer Miller and Jason Feifer comes Mr. Nice Guy, a funny and all too real comedy about the pursuit of success in life--and love--in today's working world.

Lucas Callahan, a man who gave up his law degree, fiancée and small-town future for a shot at making it in the Big Apple. He snags an entry-level job at Empire magazine, believing it’s only a matter of time before he becomes a famous writer. And then late one night in a downtown bar he meets a gorgeous brunette who takes him home...

Carmen Kelly wanted to be a hard-hitting journalist, only to find herself cast in the role of Empire's sex columnist thanks to the boys' club mentality of Manhattan magazines. Her latest piece is about an unfortunate—and unsatisfying—encounter with an awkward and nerdy guy, who was nice enough to look at but horribly inexperienced in bed.

Lucas only discovers that he’s slept with the infamous Carmen Kelly—that is, his own magazine’s sex columnist!—when he reads her printed take-down. Humiliated and furious, he pens a rebuttal and signs it, "Nice Guy." Empire publishes it, and the pair of columns go viral. Readers demand more. So the magazine makes an arrangement: Each week, Carmen and Lucas will sleep together... and write dueling accounts of their sexual exploits.

It’s the most provocative sexual relationship any couple has had, but the columnist-lovers are soon engaging in more than a war of words: They… More…

It’s the most provocative sexual relationship any couple has had, but the columnist-lovers are soon engaging in more than a war of words: They become seduced by the city’s rich and powerful, tempted by fame, and more attracted to each other than they’re willing to admit. In the end, they will have to choose between ambition, love, and the consequences of total honesty.

Just shy of 9:00 A.M., his underarms already brackish, Lucas emerged from the Chambers Street subway and joined the throng of pedestrians converging on One World Trade. For a month now, he’d been making this trip...

Praise for Mr. Nice Guy

"In Mr. Nice Guy, one brave couple does what most of us would never dare: give brutally honest feedback about last night's sex. The result is an incredibly funny, fiendishly smart, deliciously NSFW romp you won't be able to put down."--Sascha de Gersdorff, Executive Editor, Cosmopolitan

"Mr. Nice Guy is The Devil Wears Prada meets Sex and the City--a page-turner that's part diary, part coming-of-age story. I tore through it in one weekend!" --Carolyn Kylstra, Editor-in-Chief, Self

"An addictively entertaining and deliciously sexy debut, it will win you over from the very first page. One of the best of the year!" --New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood

"This pitch-perfect take on modern romance is far more than a guilty pleasure. It's also a timely battle of the sexes, taking aim at deep-seated assumptions about who wields the power--in the corner office, and in the bedroom." --Stacy London
