Chances are you know who Ali Sweeney is. Up until last year, she was the host of “The Biggest Loser” for eight seasons. She won an Emmy for her role as the villainess, “Sami” on the soap, “Days of Our Lives.” She’s recently starred in several Hallmark Original movies and now she’s out with her third novel, OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS (hachettebooks). The first two did well in chick-lit circles and she’s hoping the third time will be the real charm! So far, the reviews are fabulous and for good reason – OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS – ROCKS!

“I’m not going to spend the rest of my life in debt to the devil.”

The glamour of Hollywood is starting to wear-off in make-up artist, Alex Cleary’s life. She can’t seem to catch a break – bouncing from one job to the next. But suddenly, just like out of a movie, “opportunity knocks” with none other than lifestyle empire mogul, Hillary P. – known as a brilliant TV diva with the golden touch and an unmatched temper! Alex has a chance to join her daytime TV hit and she’s not going to blow it! Beware of what you hope for!

Making faces isn’t always pretty, as Alex quickly finds out and the so-called friendships behind-the-scenes aren’t what they appear to be, either! The daggers you feel stabbed into your back in showbiz are “real!” Alex grows up quickly and we readers get to take a bi-coastal ride with her as she quickly goes from “green” to knowing how to deal with the mean, and ends up getting the guy, too! NO, this ISN’T a spoiler! It’s chick-lit, of course she’s going to get the guy!

It’s a quick-paced, fun read that you’ll enjoy at the beach or pool – make sure you have a margarita or two – frozen!

For all things ALI you can find her on FB or twitter @Ali_Sweeney

  1. I don’t watch soaps or reality TV. I’m lucky I have time to watch the few sitcoms and dramas I love. I do enjoy a good audition show and wish there would be more of those. I was addicted to The Glee Project a while back.

  2. I’m not a soap opera watcher (although I used to watch Days of Our Lives waaay back in the 60’s and 70’s because my Mom watched it). Currently my favorite reality show is The Amazing Race.

  3. I watch none of those shows now. When my daughter was about 15 (many moons ago) I came home from work early one day and caught her watching soap operas. I had explicitly told her not to watch them. I was sitting there explaining to her how horrible they were and the tv was still on. I ended up asking her questions about who was who, etc. I got hooked on All My Children. Way before DVR days, I used to tape it every day and watch it after work. I was very upset when they ended it.

  4. I used to be a big CBS soap fan in high school. Y&R, B&B, As The World Turns, and Guiding Light were recorded every day! I lost track of them in college. Now I’m a shameless Real Housewives addict. Any and all locations. 🙂 This is an amazing giveaway! I love Ali from her Biggest Loser days!

  5. Unfortunately, I never watched soap operas. However, my favorite reality show is The Amazing Race. It’s something my husband and I both enjoy and can connect with. We hope one day to be on the show!

  6. My mother started watching Days of Our Lives when it started. I’ve watched it for 40+ years. My grandmother is 90 and still watches her “story”!! We don’t even call her during that hour! We all miss Sammie!!

  7. I watched Days when I was younger and now every once in a while, I get enthralled with Young and the Restless because it’s like a women’s fiction novel with real people! I also love Hell’s Kitchen and Masterchef even though I can’t cook my way out of a paper bag! I have Alison Sweeney’s first couple of books so I’d love this to add to my collection!

  8. I watched the Young and the Restless, The Bold and The Beautiful most recently. When I was younger, I loved to watch General Hospital and Days of our Lives!


  9. I watch Young & the Restless, Bold & the Beautiful, General Hospital & The Bachelorette & so many more. I would love to win Allison Sweeney’s book. Thanks for this generous chance.
