    Description

    How far would you go to hide who you really are inside? And what do you do when you find the one person from whom hiding your true self isn't an option?

    Glamorous movie star Dara Thomas has it all - an Oscar nomination, dozens of magazine covers proclaiming her the sexiest woman alive, and people of both sexes clamoring for her attention. She also has a carefully guarded secret life.

    As Constance Darrow, Dara writes Pulitzer Prize-winning fiction, an outlet that allows her to be so much more than just a pretty face. Rebecca Minton is a professor of American Literature in love with the work of the mysterious, reclusive author Constance Darrow, with whom she strikes up a correspondence. A chance phrase in a letter leads her to a startling conclusion about the author. What happens next will change the course of both of their lives forever.

    Really?

    The material was pretty trite. It sounded like every sentence ended in an exclamation mark. The reader was breathy in a way that meant all the voices sounded the same. It felt like both the writer and the reader were hyperventilating. All in all, not worth the time. I’m returning this one.

    3.5 for innovation w/slight spoilers

    The story started off as a breath of fresh air from you normal whirlwind romance. The characters seemed fully flushed in the fact that they had their own lives and weren't just waiting around for love (or a good lay).

    Synopsis: Dara Thomas is Hollywoods sweetheart moonlights as Pulitzer Prize fiction writer Constance Darrow. After finding out her estranged mother is dying, she flies to NYC to see her for the last time. She has to navigate her way through her mothers last apology and what it means to love again. Rebecca Minton is a collage professor obsessed with Constance's work and low key crushing on Dara. Once her and Constance's correspondence beings it's typical "I don't know why I feel so close to this person I barely know" flirtationship. After connecting to dots Rebecca and Dara form an "unlikely bond" to save the script of Dara/Constance's movie.

    Sex: I honestly I couldn't tell if their flirting went over my head or if they had no chemistry from the letters. The most memorable scene for me was there second in person meeting after Dara chased after Rebecca. That was several hours into the book! The sex was very straight forward and more on the romantic side. I defiantly wasn't fanning myself but all in all a decent scene. Not notably cringe worthy until her dead mother pops up.

    Plot: I was initially intrigued with the seeing angels aspect but how it was written was more of a last min plot device to try to bring interest. The explanation of how it stopped and why it started again felt like a transparent attempt at tying lose ends. Being a sensitive soul I am, I liked that the mothers death wasn't dwelled on but I do think it should have been more highlighted than it was.

    On to narration:
    The narrator gave Dara a husky sultry voice. That, along with the almost indifferent dialogue after her mothers death, chipped away at the character I felt Dara was in the beginning. I'm all for two fems but I think Rebecca's voice was too chipper for someone so supposedly scored... maybe switch the voices???

    At times the writing was nothing more than literary bragging making the dialogue flat and impersonal. In the end I did believe these characters could love each other.

    TL;DR- A basic book

    When It's Good

    It's really good. There are many of the same old lame romance, lesbian, and lesbian romance stand-byes here; fortunately they're is also a great deal of inspired writing and two pretty damn good lead characters. I liked the unique manner the author used to get the characters together, I liked the redemption of Dara's mother and Rene Maupin, and the lack of a "heavy" in the narrative. Dara's friend Carolyn is another well written character; in fact this genre seems to run to excellent characters and weak, overly contrived plots with occasionally ridiculous plot twists.
    Oftentimes this is done in service to a story that contains too much conflict for people who are presented just swimming with positive traits. If you're able to ignore the more ridiculous aspects pf plot and human reaction, this is an excellent read.

    Wow

    I can never *not* finish a book, but this was horrible. The story was extremely cheesy. Both main characters were terrible. The female lead that was an actress was 29 going on 12. Both were pretty immature... Couldn't finish it, even after skipping ahead to the final chapter.

    Disappointed...

    Started out interesting... had an intriguing edged... then the last two hours (or so) turned to cliche plagued syrupy goo... so sweet it made my teeth ache. With a 4.3 star rating I expected better.

    Beautifully written compelling story

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this story and finished the audible book within a few days. Compelling story with believable twists & turns. I look forward to reading/listening to more books by Lynn Ames.

    Absolutely FANTASTIC story, original & flowing. And the performance by the narrator was just as great!

    Too Much Whine

    Too many what it's. What if she....What I... What if we... You get the idea. And far too much whining. I prefer my whine in a glass.

    Mediocre Brain Fluff at Best

    I struggled to finish this and in the end decided not to with the last few chapters. I wanted to like this more, and the narrator did a good job, but the story and the main characters were difficult to invest in or relate to. Dara is too beautiful, too perfect, too 1-dimensional. Rebecca hardly seems to exist of her own accord outside how she plays to Dara. The insertion of Dara's psychic gift feels weird, forced and trite. It's hard to find good lesbian fiction and unfortunately this speaks to that for me.

    So contrived

    There’s a good premise here, but it’s poorly executed and SO unbelievable, especially as the characters gradually flatten more and more into two dimensional cardboard cutouts of “tortured movie star” that had a “bad childhood” and “can see dead people” and her “insecure professor” lover who “got bullied in high school for being smart” but has matured into a beauty. I don’t usually love romance novels anyway, but when someone like Georgia Beers can pull it off with as little pain as possible I wonder how texts like this end up published let alone on audible. Not good.
