Lost interest.... 14 Aug 2013
By LuvGirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This was actually a good story-line of a regular girl falling in love with a spoiled pop star and had to contend with the trials that came with it, but I couldn't get past the bad writing. The conversation was just too juvenile and the characters were not developed properly. The hero and heroine had no chemistry and I couldn't understand what the hero saw in the heroine. She was as dull as a door nail. It was only the heroine's POV so you didn't know what he was thinking.

He didn't seem particular impressed with the heroine. I would have loved to hear his thoughts in this situation being that he was kind of a jerk. I'm not 100% sure if there were cheating. The heroine did hear female giggling in the background but until 65% which is where I called it quits, there was nothing of significance. I don't call an ex showing up unwanted, that the hero was trying to get rid of, cheating but maybe that's just me. Who knows maybe it happened after I gave up. I certainly don't care to find out in such a horribly written book. I would love to tackle this story-line somewhere else but this author could not deliver and I lost interest.

CAUTION SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!!! 2 July 2012
By Vanessa - Published on Amazon.com
BACK COVER: Suddenly Valerie's world was changed!
Fate crossed Valerie's path with that of singing-star idol, Nicky Barratt, and for some strange reason he was reluctant to let her go out of his life.

What set her apart from his other admiring fans, she wondered. And why should he suddenly want to marry her?

She knew she could not fit into show-business life or compete with the glamorous girls who surrounded him. Yet when she learned that Nicky was using her to maintain his carefully created image, she was shattered. By then, she had fallen in love with him!

MY REVIEW: This is a very old school HP originally from the 60-70's and you can tell it is dated that way. There are no love scenes and kissing his called making love. (Always find that amusing.) So our innocent Valerie accidentally meets our singer and is soon caught up in his manager's machinations. Nicky is aware of the use of Valerie, but as far as he is concerned the ends justify the means and Valerie doesn't need to know the truth. So pretty much from the outset Nicky is deceiving Valerie, and he doesn't seem to care about it, but Valerie falls in love w/ the dashing singer. Not sure why, perhaps she thinks she can save him and so wants him.

There is an OW on the scene and for those of you that are leery of cheating in your romance stories...this one has it! Sorry, it made "The List" and that's the only reason I read it. I was looking to see what the excuse was that was given and I have to tell you I did NOT buy it one little bit and I am the rose colored glasses donnder! He could have hooked up w/ anyone for that but to specifically seek out this OW that was blackmailing him...well can the H's be TSTL? If so Nicky Barratt ranks right up there!

Nicky went along w/ what his manager suggested and he deceived Valerie quite a few times and honestly a few were not needed. For example: the boat incident. Did he really have to lie about who came on that boat?

Valerie's father changes his tune way too conveniently and there is a small romance b/w some secondary characters that distract from the main one.

Yes, Nicky was nice to Valerie sometimes and went out of his way for her a couple of times, but it felt more like he could have been working another angle since he has proven himself a liar already. I know the romantic rose colored glasses girl in me wants to believe that he was falling in love w/ Valerie but the realist rears up and smacks those glasses off her yelling, "Buy a clue!!"

On a side note, and I only mention it because it annoyed me, the OW was described as a blonde, later a red-head and then once again a blonde and there was NO mention of her coloring her hair. I could not figure out exactly what she was doing w/ this other guy and for some reason the whole saving of Nicky's rep just didn't hold up to the times.
