Although this story was very predictable without many surprises, I still enjoyed it. I think this story is a good choice for any fan of Nora Roberts or for someone who isn't familiar with her work.
Julia and Eve were exceptional characters and I liked both of them immediately. It took me a little longer to warm up to Paul, but once I did, I thought he was perfect for Julia and her son.
I really enjoyed the premise of a celebrity movie star deciding to write her memoirs and the secrets she plans to reveal are jaw-dropping and some of the characters would do anything to keep those secrets buried.
If you are looking for a good story with interesting characters, romance, suspense and mystery, then I recommend this story to provide the perfect choice.
Sexy and Intriguing
I get lost in the fascination with the glitsy movie star, Eve, and all the unique people in her life that she has maneuvered herself around and manipulated with her stunning beauty.
And the biographer, Julia, who gets lured into the deep secrets and intrigue of Eve's life. She's got to listen to all of it and make detailed notes to capture the true essence of Eve's life to write the biography completely.
Eve insists it is time to write her memoirs. Her step-son seems intent on privacy, and doesn't think its the best thing to do. There are also lots of other people who don't want their dirty secrets shared in the book, and will do anything to stop Eve and Julia.
Its only a surprise to come to find out that Julia and Eve's sexy step-son, Paul eventually hit it off and start to trust one another.
I love this twisted drama. I have read this book 3 times. I am riveted.
I really liked this story. Good complexity, good characters (not to predictable or shallow), and good plot twists. A typical Roberts story, but better than the earlier pure-romance stories. I enjoyed the read.
