Crazy Bibliophile and Book Pimp (Not So Anonymous)

I am a mother of two boys and avid reader; I practically live and breathe books. If I could sustain my life on just reading, I would live forever. I'm weird, and proud of it. I have traveled to many places: Mexico, St. Marteen, Prague, England, Cozumel, and Canada to name a few. Many moons ago I co-hosted "Welcome to Insanity" radio show on a micro radio station in TX- but our show was played via streaming internet in coffee houses in Amsterdam. I have a BA in theater. I used to be "the finder of lost things" but I think my last child robbed me of my gift. Now I just have a large collection of useless information... it goes with my growing mountain of "to be read" books

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', then fell for it hook, line, and sinker. It just seemed like it was too easy, too uncomplicated, that I felt something big was coming. 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 figured it out. So while it took me by surprise, 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. It's a great read to loose yourself and live vicariously through the pages.

I received a free copy from the publisher, Simon and Schuster, Inc., via NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.
