I had it all.
Breaking into the entertainment business as a teenager wasn’t easy. I spent years of my childhood traveling, auditioning and hoping my big break would come. And when I did, I rose to a level I never imagined.
Elle Tyler: model, singer and actress. I couldn’t go anywhere without security anymore. It was everything I ever wanted and more – fame, fortune and worldwide recognition. At age twenty-four, I was living a dream.
But a single act of violence shattered my fairytale existence. In a matter of seconds, all the goodness in me was ripped to shreds. Overnight, the people around me dropped away, moving on to find the next big thing. I gave up on myself, becoming a woman so dark and forlorn I no longer recognized myself.
But the stranger who saved me that day, Justin Lockhart, never gave up on me. He still saw light through my darkness. And as we grew closer, I started to see it, too. And I also started to see that before that terrible day, maybe I didn’t really have it all. Maybe I was always missing the only thing that really matters.
My Review in a Nutshell:
I will cry big tears if this is the last book for Lovely, Missouri. The atmosphere of Lovely is enchanting, to say the least. From Dee Dee’s Dance Depot to Gene’s Diner, everything screams personality. As well as the inhabitants of the town, quirky people they are, shining right off the pages.
But to the actual story! Elle and Justin are both lovable characters, Justin may be my favorite brother! It’s a toss of between him and Reed, but i’m on the Justin Train for now.
I was surprised by the amounts of twists and turns; at one point, I had to set my book down and regain composure. I would honestly say this novel is partially a thriller/suspense. Which are my FAVORITE kinds of romances!
