This is very much a Hollywood movie stars story. It really tells it like it is as far as what a famous Hollywood lifestyle would be like. It has a lot of sex scenes in it but nothing so graphic that it would be considered way out of line. A very good read with a very nice ending.
I loved this debut novel by Tilly Bagshawe. It was engaging and kept me turning the pages. I have not read her second book but if it is anything like the first one I will be gobbling it up. Great read, especially for fans of Jackie Collins...same style.
Listened to this audio book on a long trip. It kept my attention and made the trip fly by. I was even looking forward to driving home to finish the last few cd's and see how the book ended. Definitely recommend!
