This is one of the books that you expect one thing and you are caught off guard because it wasn't what you expected. I thought from the title that it was about a diner in Jersey but I wasn't quite right. It's a fast read so if you're looking for a book that isn't going to take a lot of your time, try it. Your emotions will will go in all different directions. A waitress, working at a job going no where perks up when the Oaklyn Diner is chosen for the site of a movie, called the Jersey Diner. When the waitress, 20 year old Lauren does work on the crew, she meets the star of the film, Jonathan Pearce She follows Jonathan to California when the filming is finished hoping to start a life with Jonathan. But, there's always that but! Does the fairy tale with Jonathan come true? If so, why does Lauren start working on a fast food truck to make that needed money to live.?
I felt this was a young woman on the road to nowhere. She saw a new and exciting life with a film star. She left what she knew, followed him to California. What she hoped and felt would happen didn't pan out as she thought. A case of not really knowing somebody before you leap into a relationship? A case of what was really a childish crush but thinking it is going to be love? Will Lauren and Jonathan find a romance? Or will Lauren be in a different place but still at a dead end?
I would recommend this book if you're looking for a quick read. In one way Lauren is immature and yet, aren't we all at times? Especially if we are down on our luck and thinking the grass is greener elsewhere. One good thing about her going to California was, she was alone, had no ties. Everyone would like a fresh start but sometimes what we dream it will be, isn't always the case.
I received a copy of this book and voluntarily decided to review it.
Love the diner and 80′s vibe. here we see Lauren almost ruin everything because of infatuation with a star. She goes down a path that has her lost and almost alone. It’s like she turns to the dark side. She gets lost and has to find her way back and only through some pain, introspection and friends and a loved one can this occur.
Jonathan is a jerk. He is a wolf in sheeps clothing to me. He really really almost destroys her. She uproots everything for him and although she meets some great people her focus for some reason is Janathan. It is a obsession almost and one that has her spiral down the rabbit hole. Lauren is one we all can relate with. She is real and honest but does lose herself in the act of infatuation and dreams. The idea of being with a celebrity does cloud her brain.
Lena and zach love those two. Love their friendship and patience with Lauren as she finds her way to her true self and where her heart lies. This is a quick reading book and flies by but you do see some disturbing things with a character you like. Disturbing for her nature that is. It is sad to watch Lauren spiral. Wonderful that she finds her way back. Overall a nice book.
Characters you like quickly, a situation that could go so many directions, and Lauren...what can I say about Lauren. I liked her but she is the scariest of them all. She seems so normal.
If you like to be kept on your toes and can accept fast switches in emotions, I mean how YOU feel about a character, you will enjoy this read. Fan Fiction taken in a different direction.
It had a slow start, until Lauren, a waitress, discovers that the hot movie actor, Jonathan Pearce, wants to film there. That sounded interesting—certainly not your everyday occurrence.
Story had an appealing premise, but, unfortunately, there was considerable lag. Don’t know if this was because of the plot structure or the writing itself. Plus, I think Lauren and Jonathan’s chemistry was humdrum, and the character cast didn’t really add much pizzazz. I mean, you would think that a diner would have a group of quirky characters.
All in all, I didn’t enjoy this story as much as I thought I would.
