Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Chick-lit's foremost apologist for the older-than-30-and-still-sexy (Flirting With Forty) targets the ageist banality of TV news and entertainment programs, chronicling the fall of 38-year-old anchor Tiana Tomlinson. "I've achieved far more than I ever expected, but it feels like so much less than I wanted," Tiana realizes as her network begins to nudge her aside for a fresher face. Reading the writing on the wall-and the lines in her face-the feisty journo delves deeper into work and turns to the lifelong friends who protect her even as her romantic and professional lives implode. In a last-ditch attempt to prove her professional chops, Tiana heads to Zambia to film the humanitarian work of hunky plastic surgeon to the stars Dr. Michael O'Sullivan. There's nothing to separate this from the herd of chick lit titles being released this summer: it's as breezy and formulaic as most.

There are many books on the market dealing with the aging process. No where is it more prominent than in Jane Porter's latest book, EASY ON THE EYES. As main character, Tiana Tomlinson discovers, thirty-eight is old in the entertainment industry even if you still look great. Tiana's job is jeopardized when the powers-that-be of entertainment news program, America Tonight, insist on adding a co-anchor to HER show. Stating that they need a fresh, new look and energy added to her show, Tiana considers having plastic surgery to maintain her single anchor status even though the surgery is something she fears and does not desire.

After losing her husband, Keith, after only one year of marriage, Tiana has placed all her energy into the one thing that she feels is hers, America Tonight. After the execs of the show insist she add a co-anchor she decides to take a break and travel to a depressed country to film a human interest story.

Although she knows Dr. Michael Sullivan, otherwise referred to as Dr. Hollywood, she finds he offers more than the eye can see. He volunteers for an organization that helps people of poverty level with their medical needs and during the filming of his journey; Tiana is impressed by his ability to quiet the fears of parents whose children he helps. A relationship develops between Tiana and Dr. Sullivan but to what extent they will take the relationship is still uncertain.

The ending of this book is both surprising and heartfelt. A good summer or winter read, Porter provides a bang for the buck.

I have been looking forward to this book for several months now, and it was worth the wait!

Tiana Tomlinson has it all. She's gorgeous. She's still fairly young. She appears in millions of homes nightly as the hostess of "America Tonight", an entertaiment and human-interest news program. The one thing she wishes she had, though, eludes her: Someone to come home to. As a result, Tiana's career is the most important relationship in her life.

When Tiana discovers the network wants to replace her with a younger model, every fear she has is made reality. If her career is gone, what does she really have? When she's not worrying about this, she's confronted with Michael O'Sullivan, the bane of her existence. Michael's a gifted plastic surgeon. He'd like to solve all of Tiana's problems. She wishes he'd find something (or someone) else to do.

While Tiana discovers that her career and her life are in desperate need of a makeover, Michael finds there is so much more to Tiana than a beautiful face. You'll keep turning the pages to find out what happens to this intriguing, complex woman!

As always, Jane's written characters that leap off the page and lodge in your heart, a book you won't be able to put down, and a story that will stick with you long after you've finished reading. You'll love "Easy on the Eyes"!

"Easy on the eyes" by Jane Porter is a wonderful book about trusting in yourself and going your own way.

Tiana Tomlinson, a famous and beautiful TV anchor of America Tonight in her thirties, seems to have the perfect life. But when her bosses tell her that she is too old to get high ratings her life is about to change dramatically. She is shocked to realize that there are already plans for a younger woman to take her place and that the only thing she could do to change it is having a face lift.
Her whole life is in chaos and she is fighting to not feel inadequate, old and lacking. Especially because her work has helped her to overcome her beloved husbands death years ago Tiana is scared to death to loose her job and part of her identity.
But soon she decides that it's time to gain back control over her life. Tiana is no longer willing to sell herself short and makes plans to change her life in a way that will make her happier and more satisfied. She also decides against a face lift because she likes her face just the way it is and doesn't want to join the race for eternal youth.
Even against vehement resistance she changes her format from only talking about stars and their scandals to more serious themes. Besides her friends Marta, Shey and Christie it's suprisingly Hollywoods favourite beauty surgeon Michael O'Sullivan who joins her on this journey, helps her to achieve a project dear to her and who is there for support in her darkest hour.

What I love most about "Easy on the eyes" is that Tiana becomes such a strong woman who decides to go her own way and doesn't comply to the pressure to stay young forever. It's so beautiful to read how she starts loving herself and her looks again and how she gains so much power by doing so.

Living life in the spotlight is great, or so it seems. But, when the aging, top rated entertainment reporter, Tiana, has her job threatened by the younger reporter, she is forced to see her life in a different light. She decides to do a different type of story and heads to Zambia to do a documentary. She meets the handsome plastic surgeon who changes her life. As with all of Jane Porter's books, this is one you just don't want to put down.
