I liked the premise of this story, and it wasn't a bad read. I liked the heroine A LOT. The hero was okay. I understood his need to maintain his reputation, but I found him to be TOOOOO self-absorbed at times. He did redeem himself, of course, in the end though. There was some very good dialogue and some funny moments in the story, so I would recommend this book to others who want a quick and easy read. And if you like Elizabeth Bevarly and her writing style, which I do, you will probably enjoy the story.

The concept behind this story was great; fictional character very closely resembles real life guy, author thought to be heroin come to life. Unfortunately that is where the great ends. This book was very one sided, while Violet/Raven could see how her life was impacted by being confused with "Roxanne" her book character; she could not see how Gavin's life was impacted by what she had written about "Ethan". Even when Gavin tried to bring her into his world, and give her some perspective on how he felt, all she could see was how she did not fit in; how he was not doing what she thought he should when they were together. She did not even try to fit into his world. She came across as selfish, expecting him to do all the changing so they could have their HEA. I really expected more from this book; we saw Gavin come to terms with his past and what he was afraid of losing, but Violet never embraced her inner Raven, much less her inner "Roxanne".
