When Rafaella, a makeup artist and Evan, the British movie star working in the States,
cross paths on a movie set their romance begins, but not without some dire circumstances.
The dialogue between Rafaella and Evan as they get to know each other also lets me know that they’re quite likable. I was cheering for them and I think you will too.
The dialogue between the main characters was disjointed, not fluid, and rather anemic and uninspiring. I began imagining their dialogue more as bullet points summarizing the entire conversation because so much content seemed to be skipped for what would have happened in realistic conversations of two people getting to know each other. The timeline was also inconsistent ranging from EXTREMELY RAPID; ie becoming boyfriend/girlfriend in 2 or 3 days, sex almost immediately after she admits she’s a 28 year old virgin and was waiting until marriage but said she loved him and they could get it on right away, etc. Or skipping so much content so quickly like jump-cutting immediately to them being in Canada after a few weeks and talking about them going to meet her family after they got back when there would have been a LOT of character and relationship development in that time I would have love to seen.
Also the living conditions described of a “sub” makeup artist in LA were too expensive for someone living off of temporary work. I’m a creative in LA with several makeup artist friends in permanent and temp/part-time positions that are very high up and not one of them could afford a multi-room apartment like Rafaella’s by themselves. Maybe if they lived far up in the valley, but the writing made it seem like she lived more in town.
If you want to read something pretty sexy that glosses over the more developmental aspects of a relationship (or “gets right to the good stuff” aka physical aspect) then this book may be a good match for you.
