Last summer readers fell in love with Robert Rave's dishy debut vel about the celebrity public relations industry, Spin. This summer, Waxed will have readers ready to hit the beach with this hilarious vel about three sisters working at an upscale waxing salon...Yank. On the surface, glamorous Carolina Impresario - big sister and owner of Impresarios Salon - unapologetically wants it all, but secretly she is caught between her successful boyfriend and the one man she has ever truly loved. Pluck. After a painful divorce, middle-sister Anna reluctantly reenters the workforce and puts on a brave face while attempting to raise her children, one of whom is decidedly different. Tear. Newlywed Sofia is a hybrid of her two older sisters: she loves the idea of domestic life like Anna, but is entranced by New York nightlife and a new best friend, resulting in some major complications at home. Romance, fame, and some very compromising positions are all in a day's work for these three sisters working at NYC's hottest waxing salon. Amidst the sticky confines of this 'perfectly manicured' world Carolina, Anna, and Sofia search for love, friendship, and better versions of themselves. Waxed is a funny and heartfelt vel about sex, dating, and family, and the lengths to which some women will go to present a seemingly flawless exterior, even when it involves pain.
A former New York City publicist, Robert Rave has worked on numerous public relations campaigns and high-profile special events in the lifestyle, fashion, nightlife, and entertainment industries. He is the author of Spin and Waxed and currently lives in Los Angeles.
