    Summary

    A modern-day retelling of Hades and Persephone;
    A loveless marriage forged in the face of war

    "He’d met Rey for the first time during a negotiation summit two years prior; she’d recently been elected prime minister and he, a newly appointed king. A military woman by training, she’d been aggressively honest – rejecting the platitudes of diplomacy in favor of forthright discussion… And despite the badges that lined the breast pocket of her uniform – tangible proof of a lifetime of hardship, she’d had a wholesome goodness about her that he’d found curious."

    Chapter 5 Excerpt: "When Kylo finally worked up the courage to risk another sideways peek at his wife, he instantly regretted it. Given that she’d subsisted on unseasoned military rations for most of her adult life, one of the first things Kylo had noticed about Rey had been her gusto for properly prepared food… But this morning, everything about the way she ate felt erotic; every nibble and every little lick – the white of her teeth, the pink of her tongue – did nothing but remind him of the way she’d kissed him just hours previous."

    Summary

    Tired of writing crummy loglines and sending tv pilot treatments to God Knows Where, Rey is ready to get out of the mailroom of Jakku Agencies. When she runs into a frazzled writer on the street and nearly saves his job, her wish is granted as she lands a job as the line producer of the most coveted reality television show, Sincerely, Skywalker.

    Really, someone should have warned Rey about working for reality television- or the Skywalker family, for that matter.
