Publisher's Summary

Since she was 14, singer Sophie James has been an international superstar. With her career (and life) directed by her manager, Ray, she hasn’t had to worry about a thing for more than a decade...not where she goes, not what she sings, not who she is. But when Ray has a heart attack, Sophie is left without the only real father figure she’s ever known and questioning everything she believes about what’s important to her.

Enter Dana Landon, the new manager sent by Sophie’s record company. Dana is gorgeous, sophisticated, and ready to do her job keeping Sophie’s career on track, and making the record company money. Dana captures Sophie’s attention in ways Sophie never expected and isn’t ready for, but after so many years of being told what to do, Sophie’s ready to shake things up with some ideas of her own. Ones Dana hasn’t been planning on and isn’t at all sure she likes.

Disappointed.

Since I am one of the first people to review this book, I feel it is my responsibility to warn all of you out there who are Georgia Beers and/or Lori Prince fans to stay away from this one.

Spoilers ahead y’all...
Iif I didn’t know, I would’ve thought this book was released in 2001. The plot is so 1999. The big drama in this movie is so stereo typical that it’s almost embarrassing as a lesbian to read it. The big problem with these two main women getting a HEA is... one is famous (which they don’t really go into much detail about her celebrity i forgot multiple times she was famous) and her manager is a lesbian. The famous one is in the closet even though there is no mention of her sexuality or any flirting or any kind of link between the two characters prior to them sleeping with each other.

Oh and the one “huge, sexy, romantic” moment is on a small bed in one of the girls’ parents house on thanksgiving, with her whole entire family under the same roof. So frickin unsexy...

This is not a slow burn romance, this is two girls just chatting with each other for over half the book. They talk about mundane, and very boring things, then they have to sleep on a bed together and wake up in the middle of the night and start making out. Despite there is no talking about it prior, no indication that either of them liked each other. Ok, there was probably a couple mentions about how one or the other internally discussed how attractive the other one was. There’s literally no flirting in this book, chemistry, no romance, no slow burn, nothing. This book is so vanilla it makes my freaking ears hurt. I really wish I could get my money back but at least I got to listen to Lori Princes’ voice for a few hours. Even though it’s one of her worst performances. If anybody knows/loves Lori Prince, listen to the sample audio, notice she sounds bored reading it.

The huge conflict! 🙄🙄
“Did it mean anything to you, our night together?” –Sophie, the celebrity character to Diana, her manager, directly after Sophie does the most stereotypical lesbian action of all, spying on the other chics phone.
That’s the moment. The climatic moment of this book. Also the first time the two protagonists even mention sleeping together that one time.

Sweet and enjoyable

Although the story line is a bit soft, it is a sweet yet predictable story that is an easy listen, especially with Lori Prince. I was engaged enough to do many mundane chores like weeding the garden for 5 hours and allow my thoughts to follow the story and subtle thoughts provoked.

Loss opens you to the life ahead and within.

I received this as an ebook in a give away. I enjoyed it so much I wanted to have the audible. Lori Prince does a spectacular job bringing the characters to life. Georgia Beers has given a saucy, coming of age story that gives hope to hear your heart at any age. I loved how Sophie and Dana connected and held each other. Beautifully written, magnificently told and a must have in my library!

OMG = I love Georgia Beers Stories

I love Georgia Beers Stories and the performance was beyond amazing. The whole book left me lifted up, knocked down, and then lifted back up as the ending creating a tear fest while I was driving. I had to stop driving and just take it in. The song Fear of Falling stabbed my heart. This is my favorite Georgia Beers book thus far.

Nice!

I just liked the book, a lot! The narration by Lori Prince is simply stellar! She can always make the most incredible changes to the voces of the characters. The description of the scenes, make you feel right there.Sofi and Dana make a lot of decisions to be able to be together. The intimate scenes where simply engaging, deep, and tastefully described. You can feel their chemistry thought each part of the book. Highly recommended

Great summer read

It is always fun to peek into the lives of stars even if it is fiction. There are things that intrigue about their lives. Truthfully I am not interested in the lives of real stars, I don’t like gossip but when Georgia beers writes a fiction about it and Lori Prince narrates it, it is always a pleasure.
This one didn’t have a big drama it developed very well in a good tempo, with well developed characters.

Georgia Beers does it again

Once again Georgia Beers takes a long popular premise of a celebrity love story but the story focused on the strong personalities of these 2 ladies. One is coming into her own and the other trying to get her feet back under her after a breakup. She even does a good job of not making the ex look like a total a**hole. And Lori Prince did a wonderful job of bringing these characters to life with her great story telling and inflections.
Would absolutely recommend.
