Top critical review
This was soooooooooo bad
on 22 June 2012
I hate writing bad reviews because someone has spent a lot of time and effort in producing a book - but this is awful. I don't use this word lightly....it's utter tosh.
We have a female lead who is a writer, turned Journo who gets sent out on a pap assignment and, overnight, is getting scoops and pictures and then wins an award. And she can miraculously fix a rich man's expensive car. And she teaches him how to build a snowman. And 5 minutes after meeting an actor at a party she's re-writing one of his scripts and, in 3 hours, produces something "amazing" and is having contracts, cheques and more scripts pinned at her. And she's a martial arts expert. And...and...and - halfway through I was expecting her to win a Nobel prize. How many cliches can you get into one book?
But the biggest crime was the way it just fizzled out. There is an ex boyfriend and her boss (Royce) who appear to be muscling in on the romantic front (as well as the rich blokes she is drawing like flies) and then the book just stops. No real conclusion. And I didn't see it coming because I was only 60% through on my Kindle (something else was being promoted after it but I was ticked off by then and pressed delete).
