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!
I read this on behalf of A Book Lovers Emporium Book Blog
A great book!
My first book of 2016 could quite possibly turn out to be one of my favourites of the year. It had everything I ever want from a book. A female lead that makes me feel every ounce of what she's feeling, a male lead who's perfectly imperfect and an antagonist who threatens said female and male finding their happy ever after and it made me cry.....Simple!
Lux Dawson is one of those characters that is socially awkward to the extreme and genuinely doesn't see the beauty in herself and not in a way that makes her come across as a martyr, she has come to terms with the fact that she cannot compete with the likes of Tessa Donahue, girlfriend, mega-tramp and also co-star to Jude Atwood.
Sadly Lux must hide her feelings for Jude and try to find peace in being friends zoned.
I loved Jude, I really did, but if there is ever a guy that needs a stick of dynamite up his backside it was this guy. I'm not lying when I felt every ounce of Lux's heartache and frustration and yes there were tears at 2:30am because I simply couldn't put the book down.
If I have one wish it's that Amity gives us Jude's perspective. There's a very small snippet where we get to know Jude's thoughts and while I'm not always a huge fan of the same book in a different point of view and I'm not even asking for an entire book, but I really would love to know more of what Jude was thinking.
Having only read Amity's Royal Blood series, I have to say this book was nothing like it........Not even close. You could say L is for Loving someone from afar with a few obstacles thrown in for good measure, but for me it was so much more and thinking of my fave reads of 2015, this book evoked similar feelings, so I have no doubt I'll be talking about this book at the end of the year. All in all this is a very beautiful, worthy 5 star read.
Cue Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol, yeah I know never would I ever thought that would be a song that would pop into my head whilst reading Amity Cross but somehow it just fits. L for Luminous is a coming of age, growing into your own skin and embracing yousepf type read. No murder, mayhem or darker plot lines just a good old fashioned angst riddle tale of Lux a determined but not very confident talented writer. Given up for adoption as a new born she has never felt loved or accepted and has found her escape in her writing. Creating a world where she is the protagonist fighting evil, saving the day and being loved by a hot alpha male...her books are self published and going unnoticed until one chance keeping changes it all.
Jude is a hot commodity in the dazzling world of TV. Part of a successful series he is the main character that has all the female audience licking the TV screen. Returning home to star as the main guest at a comic con convention he is trapped briefly in a lift with the most quizzical young woman. She is different to his adoring fans, legions of horny females and actually sees him. The chance encounter leads onto life changing events but I'd it who you know and not your talent that opens doors? Lux is lost in self doubt...
Can Lux make it as a screen writing, has she the determination and talent to win over her critics including herself? Most of all will they abandoned little girl find the acceptance and love she is desperately seeking? The ugly duckling emerges as a beautiful swan but can she capture the heart of the man who holds hers?Read more ›
