Description

An actress practically since birth, Grace Durand has finally made it in Hollywood. When a photo of her in a seeming compromising situation with another woman is plastered all over the tabloids, she fears for her career as a lead in romantic movies.

Desperate for a publicist who’ll convince America that she’s straight, Grace hires Lauren Pearce, one of Hollywood’s leading PR agents, not knowing that she’s a lesbian.

Lauren has dealt with PR nightmares for years, so doing damage control for one more rich, spoiled client shouldn’t be a problem - or so she thinks. But the more time she spends with Grace, the more she realizes how different she is from her television persona.

Getting involved with her client is not in her game plan, especially since it would confirm the rumors and ruin Grace’s career, but the attraction between them is growing as they run the gauntlet of the paparazzi together.

wanting

ok story... love a nice romance however the narrator was wooden. it made it obvious we were being told a story instead of being immersed in a compelling story.hard to get lost in the story for me.

Awful narration

After having been wonderfully serenaded by Angela Dawe and Abby Craden, I find it such a shame that Jae's brilliant writing should be so amiss in the horrible narration. I was looking forward to listening to this after Perfect Rhythm and Not the Marrying Kind, but I'm just sad about the blunt tonality and complete lack of depth that transpires through it. I keep trying to listen to just the words and make out their intonation without letting the lack of it affect my enjoyment of the story itself.

couldn't finish

Jae huge fan of your writing and I love the premise of this book. I have read other books with close to the same outline but this one had a nice twist. I stopped the book at chapter 5. I really wanted to keep going but the narration for me was just off. there needed to be more seriousness in certain spots and the dialect needed to alter on some scenes. I have no harsh words for the narrator as I know how difficult this is but with that said, this would have worked better with Abbey Craden, or Victoria N. Vincent...

Could've been better

I almost gave up on this one pretty early on ONLY because of the narrator. But I liked the plot so I continued and hoped I'd just get used to it. I didn't.

The story had so much potential and probably would've received 5 stars but the narrator ruined it for me. There wasn't enough variation with the character's voices so at times I wasn't sure who was speaking. And she would pause at odd and random points in the sentence, causing them not to flow as smoothly as they should have.

Basically, it sounded like the narrator was reading a book. And I know that sounds weird seeing as how this is an audiobook. However, the way she read prevented me from connecting with the characters at all.

But maybe that's just me. I'm sure I would've loved this book with a different narrator. My advice is to listen to a sample and make your own decisions.

Don't be A mother f

I laughed, I cried, and I got lost in the story. I fell into the adventure of being in the world. I fell in love with them. I fell in love that M.S. is not a disability that control you. Heartfelt and heartwarming and was really was starting to not like that mother, but the end.

OMG - another roller coaster of emotions

We all know the outcome of romance novels. But the outcome is not what is important. What is important is the journey. And wow, Jae really takes us on a journey with this one.

great story

I'm a fan of the author and the story was great, if a bit long. There was about an hour of extra fluff overall. The narrator has excellent diction and vocabulary but the problem for me was difficulty in discerning who was speaking, other than the mother. The narration of MCs mother seemed a bit over the top, as in, only one mode: full-on, all the time. Audibly, this made the character less believable, regardless of dialogue. This left the listener with no empathy for her. And lastly, the overall performance seemed to have been done too positive. This was most noticeable where the dialogue was serious, even very serious but was still spoken "up beat".
Jae's writing is how got to the end of this audiobook.

Great Book - Bad Voice Artist

The book is great - as always with a book from Jae. Play it at 1,2 (speed up the performance) that works!

Love has many forrms accepting it can be difficult

This very slow burn romance has so many challenging but beautiful moments. Abigail Rakocy brings to life the real struggle to be true to yourself. Grace has lived the life her mother wanted for her without even questioning. Lauren has played by everyone's rules and pushed what her heart wants aside. Their attraction and friendship cause them to reach beyond the boundaries. I loved this gripping story and my favorite part was Grace taking her life back from her controlling mother. The relationship Grace and Lauren build is so breathtaking. This was such a good read.

good story, bad narration

the story would have been much better if the narrator had not dragged it out. I played it at 1.2 speed and it was more manageable. would not recommend this narrator.
