FROM AND I FELT LIKE I COULD CONNECT WITHand I felt like I could connect with easily something key with books dealing with this topicThe storyline was pretty good Not always as gripping as I first thought it d be I mean I can t be the only person who has wondered what it would be like to star in a television show ight I wanted to get a feel of what life on set was like and I think that fell a bit short A lot of the scenes between Jasmine and Casey Elise s character were only mentioned and I feel like that was a key part to miss out I was also disappointed that for most of the book it was that familiar teen angst of she loves me she loves me not she loves me with the plot just evolving around Holly chasing Elise After a while it did get a bit tediousHowever although this book was set on a television set I think a main focus of the story was about coming to terms with your Although she wasn t main character Elise s journey towards accepting that she did like women was eye opening and something I think a lot of people can learn from for a variety of easonsDespite provoking some serious eye The Road to Einsteins Relativity rolls and the writing being uite mediocre I liked The Road to Her a lot It was a uick easyead and it did leave you with positive fuzzies at the end If you like the LGBT genre or are just curious and want to know than give this book a try This is a story about a very difficult coming out of one of the MC s one late teens the other early twenties I didn t Black Boy really care for either of the MC s I thought they were both too childish Bella was the one I found interesting o This is a story of a young British actress who falls for her co star who has beenecently added to the cast as a lesbian love interest Jasmin whatever her name is is an actress and she falls for this other actress who initially insults and intimidates her but because she is so hawt still dominates Jasmin s thoughts Having the girl pick up a guy at the bar and claim to sleep with him only adds to Jasmine s desire for her The dialogue Nighttime Sweethearts reads like middle school and I could only make it to the 50% mark This isn t aeview so much as a note to myself not to pick this up in a year s time having forgotten what it s about. To see another side to her costar Liking what she sees Holly slowly finds herself falling in love but can she ignore her growing attraction to Elise when the lines between fact and fiction begin to blur. On Portobello Road draws huge audience approval and nobody BATS AN EYE IF HOLLY AND ELISE AS REAL an eye If Holly and Elise as Maternity Bride (Silhouette Desire real stars were to come out as a couple the tabloids could destroy them Lesbianomance is fine when it s fiction but in Safe in My Arms real life Thereemains a stigma attached to it At the bottom line do Holly and Elise have enough courage to live their private lives the way their characters do before millions of nightly viewers Or could this sad duality wreck their careers It s an interesting uestion Ms Payne grapples with here and the eader can only hope the couple s strength ultimately mimics their alter egos Recommended An enticing premise that falls I enjoyed K E Payne s 365 Days but this one suffers from poor line editing and underdevelopment The characters are strong and there is the occasional lovely turn of phrase eg A fine ain was falling Spots of water gathered silently on the windowpane pausing for a moment before pooling together then uickly slithering down the glass But those moments weren t freuent enough I wished I could delete 90% of the adverbs and every instance of the narrator telling Poisoned Secrets (Murder and Mayhem rather than showing her emotions and then spent those words developing the soap opera parts of the story I ve seen a few other novels by Payne about but I ve always been hesitant to pick them up Why Not because of the genre that s for sure I love books that tackle difficult and uite controversial topics which all of hers do do However theeviews I have skimmed over have never been too good Despite this The Road to Her caught my eye and I couldn t help but try it It actually left me pleasantly surprisedHolly Croft
