Sex With Strangers

Sex With Strangers


Olivia, an attractive and talented but underappreciated mid-career writer, is unexpectedly trapped overnight in a secluded, snowed-in B&B with Ethan, an equally attractive and wildly successful young blogger. 

Her latest novel is an unsung masterpiece; his blog is being made into a movie. She prefers books; he prefers eBooks. She is anonymous; he has half a million Twitter followers. But opposites soon attract – passionately – as each realise they want more of what the other has. But the closer they get, the more they must confront the murky side of ambition, success and Wi-Fi…

Laura Eason’s smart comedy is a multifaceted love story packed with hidden ambitions, soaring desires and secret agendas.

Laura Eason is the author of twenty plays including The Undeniable Sound of Right Now, and adaptations of Around the World in 80 Days and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Eason is also a writer for the Emmy award-winning Netflix series, House of Cards.
