I kinda wanna stick a fork in the "hero's" eye. Ugh
Ok, so this wasn't what I expected. Based on the title and the cover, I was thinking light and fun. Not really so much. I mean it wasn't super duper heavy, but definitely not so fun for me.
It's about Raine, who at one time was a geeky girl into comics and Star Wars whose aunt turned her into a beauty queen which lead to life on the big-ish screen. Now semi-famous, she slept with her famous best friend who doesn't remember it. Then it goes from past to present to somewhere in between past and present to tell Raine's story as she fumbles through her lie to Will, her best friend, when he wakes up the next morning freaking out that he slept with her. It's told completely from Raine's POV. When another one of her best friend's passes away, she has to face Will and her other ex-best friend Ellie. (Confused? It took me a while to place all the people and time changes).
I guess the best thing I can say about this book is that I felt the need to read it all the way to the end. I had to know how it was all resolved. Yet when I got to the end, I was kind of angry and most definitely annoyed with the resolution. Most of the book is about Raine and her transformation and how she met all these Hollywood types and became friends. There is really very little interaction between her and the "hero" Will. And I also have a difficult time reading past to present books because I find myself skimming to get to the "good stuff" in the present. I skimmed A LOT during this book.
So maybe that's why I just didn't at all like Will. Or it could be that, though he claimed Raine was his best friend, he still continued to work with and interact with Ellie who was horrible to Raine. And most definitely because once we learn more about the two of them <spoiler>he freaking slept with Ellie when he claimed both girls were like sisters and then later claimed he'd been in love with Raine for forever</spoiler>. Gross. Then he screwed Raine over for "her own good". Ugh, gross again. In the end it all was resolved so easily so quickly.
I've liked other books by Ms. Bulter but this one was a big miss for me.
So, the very beginning was intriguing! At least mildly. But I'm over 20 pages in (15%) and the only action has been the MC throwing her laptop in a tantrum of self-pity. The rest has been a convoluted backstory info-dump sprinkled with irrelevant details about her home life to keep us in the scene and make her seem quirky. I can tell I'm supposed to think she's a geek who somehow fell into Hollywood success but is above the hype; instead she comes off like a self-absorbed, bitter, B-list actress (with an Emmy??). And I'm disgusted with the lie she told the hero--if the roles were reversed, it would have been tantamount to rape!
And now, after 20 pages of listening to the MC reminisce about the past, there's a timeline jump to the past, no active story, and I really don't like this protagonist--there's nothing for me here.
I was reading in line at the pharmacy when I decided to put it down and face unadulterated boredom instead, if that gives you any idea the level of annoyance I reached.
