OK, you’ve GOT to know these girls – famous authors Emma and Nicola, who co-wrote The Nanny Diaries, which was then made into a movie. I also loved their book Dedication, if you didn’t get a chance to check that one out!

BetweenYou and Me comes out TODAY, and their publicist wanted me to tell you about a special deal they’ve got going on: For the first time ever, OpenSky is bringing a book to life. On OpenSky.com, starting June 12 for just two weeks -- there will be a special collection of celebrity curated fashion and accessories inspired by Between You and Me's main character Kelsey Wade.  From red carpet ready accessories to the perfect sunglasses for hiding from the paparazzi, it features pieces chosen by Ali Fedotowsky, Monet Mazur, Kelly Bensimon, Molly Sims, and Nancy O’Dell. So, after you enter to win the book here, go to OpenSky.com and check out the goods they have to offer!

Now, back to the book, Between You and Me!

What happens when you are followed by millions . . . and loved by none? 

Twenty-seven-year-old Logan Wade is trying to build a life for herself far from her unhappy childhood in Oklahoma. Until she gets the call that her famous cousin needs a new assistant— an offer she can’t refuse. 

Logan hasn’t seen Kelsey in person since their parents separated them as kids; in the meantime, Kelsey Wade has grown into Fortune Magazine’s most powerful celebrity. But their reunion is quickly overshadowed by the toxic dynamic between Kelsey and her parents as Logan discovers that, beneath the glossy fa├žade, the wounds that caused them to be wrenched apart so many years ago have insidiously warped into a show-stopping family business. 

As Kelsey tries desperately to break away and grasp at a “real” life, beyond the influence of her parents and managers, she makes one catastrophic misstep after another, and Logan must question if their childhood has left them both too broken to succeed. Logan risks everything to hold on, but when Kelsey unravels in the most horribly public way, Logan finds that she will ultimately have to choose between rescuing the girl she has always protected . . . and saving herself.

My sister! We didn't have a good relationship growing up, but now we would give and trust each other anything. She is my best friend and I love her dearly.

Depending on what the secret is, depends on who I'd share it with. It it inolves extended family members, I'd tell my sisters. If it involved someone else, I'd tell my boyfriend or my best friend whom I've known for 20 years.

My husband for sure. We tell each other everything.

Kimmi said...

If it's a secret that I find highly personal and could harm myself or someone else, I've managed to keep it to myself. Tis not an easy thing to do though.

My husband is the one and only person I could share "secret" things with. my bestie is a bit of a gossip :)

Anne said...

I'm pretty much an open book (pun intended) so I don't have many secrets. BUT I seem to be the person that EVERYONE comes to with THEIR secrets. A lot of which I reallllly wish I didn't know :)

Bridget O'Neill said...

My sister. She and I have shared so many secrets, and I know I can trust her to keep it to herself :)

Marla W. said...

I can trust my besties (M, M, and J) - they keep my secrets if needed. Though I'm much like Anne above...I don't have many secrets - I am very open. The secrets I do hold are others' and like she said - sometimes I wish I didn't know :o)

Nanette said...

My BFF, Buffy Dee Chapman! Yes, Maam!! She's MAH GIRL!!!! :)

If I had a secret to share (and believe me I have had many of them in my time) it would definitely be my husband and my BFF. I can't tell you how badly I want to read this book!

My hubby is my "between you and me" friend. I can tell him anything and it goes no further. My brother is my other one, although with the understanding that anything we tell each other likely gets shared with our spouses!

Denise said...

I'm lucky enough to have a few, but if I had to choose, I can't narrow it down beyond my siblings - I could go to either my siste ror brother.

I'd tell my friend, Sue. We don't see each other often (enough) but I can pretty much tell her anything!

betsy_blixt said...

My best friend Kelli! We met in college and have been tight ever since. Even though we only lived in the same city, actually state as well, for 2 years we still are closer then ever. I can tell her things I can't admit to anyone else. She knows all my secrets and always will, cause they are now her secrets as well.

Dani In Chicago said...

My mom :-)

If it has to do with sex, then my friend Lisa :-)

My best friends Michele, Karen or Samantha. I can tell them anything and they're a vault.

sookie28 said...

If I had a secret I just had to share, it would have to be with my best friend of almost 20+ years. I think I could tell her anything and not worry about being judged...

slm8803 said...

I have several people I could trust,however,I'd probably have to go with my husband!

ludy2288 said...

It totally depends on what the secret is! most of the time it would be my boyfriend, but sometimes my sister, or mom, or a certain good friend.

Corgi Lover said...

My boyfriend.

Cheryl said...

I tell all my secrets to my journal. Sad to say, the older I get the less I trust my friends. What I like about my journals is I know my 3 daughters will read them some day,so in a sense I am really telling them,just not for a long time.

TaraUB said...

It depends on the nature of the secret, but I really don't have a lot of secrets. Generally The Husband, but sometimes best friends are told something.

BRN2SHOP9 said...

I would share it with my mother

Susan @ The Book Bag said...

It would be my daughter who is my best friend. And I know that if I shared a secret with her and told her to 'keep it', I know that she would. I have known her to do that when she has been entrusted with a secret.

My best guy friend, Kevin.

Mumma23qts said...

I wouldn't tell anyone my biggest secrets. But, I don't really have any, anyway.

Tiffany Drew said...

My husband. He never tells anybody anything I tell him. I don't know if that's because he can just keep things to himself or because he just doesn't listen to me... could go either way lol

Lindsay Elizabeth said...

My best friend Allison is the best secret keeper I know.

Christina said...

I can always trust my fiance, or either of my two best friends! I usually share everything with all of them :)
