"For Stella, deputy editor of The Globe, the choice has always been clear. It doesn't matter how low she has to stoop--getting the best story is what she's built her reputation on. For Jess, The Globe's rookie reporter, the story stops when the truth does. But she knows that the dirty tricks of the tabloids will be hard to overturn. And when a celebrity is hounded by The Globe and pays the ultimate price, Jess wonders just how much Stella and the paper are responsible. Determined to show the world what the tabloid is capable of, Jess will do whatever it takes to uncover the truth, but she needs to watch her back, because someone else is prepared to kill to bury it."--… (mais)

Jess has finally been hired as a news reporter. It’s for a tabloid but she is beyond excited. However, things change quickly. Jess soon realizes the lengths her boss and her editor will go to to get the story.

I did not like a single character in this book. Even Jess…she is supposed to be the good one. I found her a bit mousy. I know, I know…she is young. But, I just felt the whole set of characters were immoral. I am sure that is exactly what the author wanted to portray, the nastiness of the tabloid business and the people surrounding it.

Now, I love a production on an audiobook and I also enjoy when the author takes part in the production. This one has all of the above! Narrated by Nathalie Buscombe; Sandie Jones; Sofia Engstrand. Excellent job by this team!

Need a good tale which will have you cringing…THIS IS IT! Grab your copy today!

I received this novel from the publisher for a honest review. ( )

Jess is excited to move to The Globe as a reporter. However, when she is given assignments, she is taken aback by the methods that the paper uses to get a story. She goes to Max, the editor, and tells of her discomfort, especially after a tragedy involving one of their subjects.
Stella, who wants to be the editor, works hard to uncover dirt on the subjects and write pieces. She is known as a tough reporter. When the publisher of the paper comes to her with a request, she starts to see things differently. She is also frightened that one of the people they exposed is being released from prison and will come after her.
Things are not always what they seem, and some people expect that others will do whatever is necessary for the paper. But, they may be surprised as to where loyalties lie.
A very good thriller. ( )

Buckle up book friends! If you had any thoughts that certain sectors of the news media may use unscrupulous, highly unethical methods to get a story, The Trade Off by Sandie Jones is not going to disabuse you of those ideas. An exploration of tabloid-esque news through the eyes of an idealistic reporter who thinks she can be the change, make a dent in the system. I experienced this in my favorite way to read through dual ebook/audiobook thanks to my friends Minotaur Books and Macmillan Audio via Netgalley. The Trade Off is available today, 8/15/23.

Jess is thrilled to be The Globe’s newest editor. When she begins to understand not just how people are coerced into giving interviews, but are set up into situations to create news stories to report. She is determined, with support from higher up, she can begin to shift how things are done. The deeper Jess gets, the more she realizes she has no idea where anyone’s loyalty stands, and where her own safety lies.

Sandie Jones serves up a dishy tale with unlikeable players, a main character who is principled but flawed, and a boys club full of misogyny and privilege. I’m here for every naughty bit of it! I loved seeing Jess’s journey, her stumbles and triumphs. Keep an eye on Stella, she’s far more interesting than I’d anticipated!

The audiobook is narrated by Nathalie Buscombe, Sandie Jones, and Sofia Engstrand. These narrators did a fantastic job and adding a layer to the story that really worked. I highly recommend the dual book/audiobook reading experience that allows you to carry your story along when you’re walking, driving, or folding laundry. It truly maximizes reading time.

You’re going to want The Trade Off on your priority TBR for mystery thriller and suspense reading. ( )
