Classic SEP Hollywood Page Turner
on 12 March 2010
It had been a while since I had read an SEP and I eagerly awaited this UK release - why does it take so long?
I did enjoy it and prompted me to re-read a couple of my favourites.
I like Georgie she was warm throughout her trials and tribulations and again with SEP I liked the parent child dynamic with her father.
Bramwell was hot and arrogant enough to be entertaining and pages kept turning as I drifted off down the malibu beach literally 1000's of miles away from my world.
Yet I kept getting distracted by the whole hollywood couple Brangelina Aniston triangle parallels. I sometimes fell off the page and disconnected with the storylines. In the same way the stretched plotlines although comical again jarred a bit.
The interplay between the two central characters was pure SEP and gave me pleasure. I did get caught up enough to finish the book in two sittings with enough cross over references to make me feel warm, fuzzy and nostalgic for novels fondly remembered .
I liked the spin off relationships with Chaz and Aaron, Paul and Laura. What I always enjoy is how each of the other characters relate to the main protagonists. The way they interact, show care for each other, endears them to us all the more and through them we invest. SEP does this so well and this book is no exception.
Its no 'Natural Born Charmer' but its SEP and the pages kept turning, well worth a look.
