Long, but lovely. Did I mention it was LONG? There really is something captivating about a story including movie stars. There is that thrill and exhilaration from being even near the lime-light. Like just reading the book gives you that chance to bask in stardom's glow. I really enjoyed that feeling the book gave me, while still allowing the characters to be 'real'. Although many choices made grated against me, I was sucked into their story.
I kept waiting for the big 'drama', wondering if it was just going to be uncomplicated but expecting the other show to drop. It dropped; oh, boy, how it dropped, and I fell for it... hook, line, and sinker. It just seemed like it was too easy, too uncomplicated, that I felt something big was building. I have to admit, when it finally arrived, I didn't see it coming. I sweared at my poor defenseless Kindle. It cut my heart out for like 2 minutes before I had a 'Ah-ha!' moment. So while it took me by surprise initially, I was able to see the truth fairly quickly.
I will absolutely continue the series! In fact, I really want to start book 2 like right now... too many other books in the way. It was really almost a 'wholesome' romance story but with several of the characters being famous. Do not pick this us expecting some fake reality show nonsense; leave the Springer mentality out of these romantic pages. It's nearly blasphemy compared to the pure love that pours off the (many) pages. It's a great read to loose yourself for a while... and maybe the housework, too.
I received a free copy from the publisher, Simon and Schuster, Inc., via NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.

I will round up in this case to
