Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
This is a bit of a new take on the typical Moviestar romance. First off Wheeler/Thomas is not the A-list manwhore actor. He's a character actor who is more interested in the acting than the fame and seems pleased that most of the time he can wander unrecognized in public. Mel/Melanie/Melvin is just an everyday girl trying to make ends meet and when her and Thomas meet she is fairly unimpressed with not only his fame but his silence. Luckily they both have Graham to alleviate the awkwardness and lighten the atmosphere that begins to surround them throughout the first half of the book.
I think my favorite quote of Mel's in the whole book was "“Sorry, no can do. We country bumpkins like to roast our road kill in the comfort of our house trailers. The Federals get riled when we try to sell our moonshine to the slickers. Good gravy, why am I doing this? I’m not supposed to chat with you.”
The first half moved at a good pace as both Thomas and Mel felt each other out between trading barbs, trying on friendship as though it was a coat a size too small and trying to get over their own insecurities.
Then we get to the second half and we hit a few rough patches. The story becomes a little uneven. There's a time gap I didn't find entirely believable that a person would keep yearning for another when they had barely made baby steps towards each other, a rush ahead then another time gap and more bumbling. I also really missed Graham and thought he could have pulled both their heads out quicker had he been involved. Overall it was a really solid contemporary read. The only angst is created by the characters stubbornness, which although annoying is a relief from some of these darker reads coming out lately.Read more ›
By Lynn Rae.
This is the first book I have read from this author. I truly loved reading this romance story. The story is about Mel, she lives in a small town in Ohio and was asked to be a driver for a movie production company that is in her town to make a movie, and she is responsible for taking two of the actors to and from the movie site. Her Boss advised her not to speak to the actors, to be very professional. That is her plan to do her job. Of course how can you not be quiet when you are asked questions? They want to know about the town and her of course. She gets along great with the older actor but the hot one, not so well.
I loved how this story was written, I thought the author did a great job, I understood all the characters and what was going on. Great detail information. But not over bearing, there are some sex scenes but I felt it was written well. I really like Mel, I can understand how hard it was for her. Well not really since I have never been in her position, I would love to be a driver for a hot male actor, of course I don’t think I would drive as well.
I think I would have like a little more at the end of the story, would like to know what happens in more detailed. But I am glad I was able to read this book and enjoyed it.
I received this book for an honest review.
The setting was a typical small town which is comforting and like coming home for me, I enjoyed how the author gave us the full picture of the town and that attention to detail brought my favorite scene of the book (where they go to the hamburger place where Mel and Thomas and Graham go for dinner) it seemed so real like you were right there having your very own Dumpster burger. All in all I thought this was a solid romance story! It reminds me of "Win a Date with Tad Hamiliton" only better since I love the snarky comments and flirting between Mel and Thomas. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a cute fun romance read.
I was given this book for my honest review
Masquerade the meaning is a disguise or false outward show or pretense. Looking at the word as it pertains to our everyday lives we can come to understand that with all that we come in contact with one way or another each day we all can put on an outward of show. The true face within us all is our trueness of self but, on the outside we are able to put on a mask and show the world what we want and keeping our trueness of selves at bay.
To the author: This book had a fascination about it that totally swept me away in some points in the book but others not so much. The realness between the characters brought out an awe that will make readers want to jump into the story. The love between these two characters was evident but the weariness between them brought out the best and the hidden emotions that each had was too much for me at times. The dragging out till the end was something just too much for me but will most likely be what your readers would love to read. Kudos to you
To the readers: Sit back for one heck of a journey
