Lux Dawson (25)...rejected all of her life. From birth, to never being adopted and then shuffled from foster home to foster home. She suffers from low self esteem...she's a lonely, anti-social wallflower who slowly begins to bloom through her writing and finds her voice. A wonderfully written story of Lux's rise to success. I just wish there was some "bow chicka bow wow". I mean, there's not even a kiss until 70% of the book is gone. The final 20% was the best part of the whole story. If you like a low key drama with lots of attraction but very little romance...a s-l-o-w budding romance that graduates eventually from Jr. High to High School, then you'll probably like this story. It's worthy of the time. Readable but not repeatable. As for me, well... I need more steam.
This is more romantic than erotica, which I personally loved. Not that it doesn't have a bit of spice! But I love the urst - the unrelieved sexual tension - that is well played, and causes the "problem" of the book.
I loved that there were some nice flaws to the characters that made them very believable. Well written, and well worth the read.
I have no idea how accurately it portrays the behind-the-scenes world of script writing and television production, however the characters are pretty well-developed. There were a couple times I got impatient with how the hero and heroine acted and the lack of communication, put the good writing carried me through those times. The heroine's backstory does explain some of her choices, but the hero isn't given as much of a backstory to explain his wishy-washy behavior (parents are divorced; he avoids them to loss them both off. Seems like fertile ground for exploring different motivations, fears, etc.)
Several sub-characters are ripe for sequels: actress Candy; best friend Melody; executive Sharon. I do hope the author explores more of their lives.
Because it's a pet peeve of mine, it was great to have very few typos to pull one out of the story. (Maybe five total? And relatively minor)
A good read, especially for those who enjoy sci-fi, fantasy and Hollywood all rolled into one.

I loved this book, its not what I was expecting which is why I think I enjoyed it even more. As with all her other books I was sucked in from the first page so no disappointment from me! This is a lovely story.
Lux is a writer, she likes to get lost in her own fantasies, (who can blame her?) she has no family, her parents gave her up when she was born so she's not had the most ideal of childhoods, but she survived and mulled along in life. All she wanted was someone to read her books but no one would touch them so with encouragement from her friend she self published. Lux was helping out at a cartoon convention and whilst on an errand the elevator broke down. Well there was another person in the very same broken down elevator, he was a famous actor called Jude!! Lux being quite an introvert found it hard to have a conversation with Jude. They were rescued but not before Jude managed to get her card!! Little did Lux know that day was about to change her life completely!!
You must read this and find out what's in store for Lux.
I absolutely loved it, I think it's one I could read over and over!! Thank you Amity for yet another 5 star read!
