Competition details:

We’re giving 100 Caboodlers the chance to read Mikaella Clements & Onjuli Datta’s epic love story, The View Was Exhausting, before it’s out in July.

Whitman ‘Win’ Tagore and Leo Milanowski are the greatest love story of our time. International movie star meets the beautiful son of a millionaire. Their kisses write headlines and their fights break the internet. Nobody needs to know it’s not real.

Win knows that Hollywood demands perfection – especially from a woman of colour.

Leo just wants to enjoy life, and shift press attention away from his dysfunctional family.

Together they control the narrative.

Except this time, on the shores of Saint-Tropez, Leo is hiding a secret that is about to send Win’s world spinning. Now everyone’s dream couple must confront the messy reality of their relationship. Just as they’re starting to realise that they might actually be falling in love…

The View Was Exhausting is a bold, swoon-worthy and utterly modern debut novel about truth, fame and privilege – and how we love now.

“Effortlessly cool, razor sharp, and crazy fun – I couldn’t put it down” Taylor Jenkins Reid, bestselling author of Daisy Jones & the Six

“An absolutely stellar debut with tension that crackles and prose that sings – the complex, Hollywood love story we’ve all been waiting for”. Emily Henry, bestselling author of Beach Read
