Head of Zeus
My Own Worst Enemy
My Own Worst Enemy by Lily Lindon

She's her own worst enemy. So why does she fancy people who look like her?
In the new fun, fresh and laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from Lily Lindon, opposites really don't attract.

Overthinker and recent drama-school graduate Emmy Clooney (no relation) will do anything to be a successful actor, even if it means getting typecast in the tiny roles available to a 'mid-twenties short-haired lesbian'.

But in the audition room for her big break, Emmy meets a new rising star, Mae Smith-Jones – unfortunately, another mid-twenties short-haired lesbian. As Mae is exactly Emmy's casting type, she is her worst enemy. But as Mae is effortlessly charismatic, talented, and insanely hot in costume, she is also exactly Emmy's romantic type...

When their opposing personalities clash, Emmy and Mae begin a fierce competition to win the best parts. But if they are cast in the same play, will they find a way to act nicely – or will they take their rivalry to the next stage?
