The Manolo MatrixThe Manolo Matrix by Julie Kenner

This book was awesome. I loved it. It is the second in the series. The first one was called The Givenchy Code and was excellent as well. This one had a musical theater theme, so that to me was awesome because I love musical theater. (The Givenchy Code was a code breaking/encryption theme). The premise of these books is an online game called Play-Survive-Win which is a survival game set in Manhattan that some wacko has brought into real life. This series is great and I cannot wait for the next one.

Aspiring actress Jennifer Crane knows all about games -- the games girls play to get a guy; the games actresses play to land a part; and the good old game of credit-card roulette. (How else is a girl supposed to afford her shoes?) But she never expected to be playing a game with life-or-death consequences. Unable to successfully score an acting gig, she has, instead, been cast in the role of reluctant bodyguard to a real-life assassin's target -- a dashing FBI agent of all people! -- and must embark with him upon a scavenger hunt across Manhattan in search of the ultimate prize: survival. Before this, Jenn's definition of fighting dirty has been elbowing her way to the front of the line at a Manolo sample sale. Now, if she wants to stay alive, she's going to have to learn a few new uses for her stilettos. . . and they ain't pretty.
