    Part detective novel, part coming of age tale, part romantic work of love for a woman, a city, and a possible red herring, this book is a page turner brain pleaser In a time where Hollywood and modern fiction seem to be churning out lazy, uninventive reboots and relaunches buzzwords for crap they already own and don t have to pay true talent to acquire effortless new version of The Holden A...

    A stunner Truly I m blown away I read A lot Maybe 150 books a year romance, historical fiction, fantasy, mystery, classics, young adult, new adult, nonfictionI m not nailed down to any specific genre, just looking for something good, different, entertaining This book hit the mark as closely as just about anything I have ever read It was about screenplays where movies get their beginning, the initial idea and developing plan And it was about the LA life The greed, the grandeur No A stunner Truly I m blown away I read A lo...

    I received this book as part of an author book tour in exchange for an honest review.Sam Bateman is one of those guys He s sarcastic, bitter, and at times, very clever Disillusioned and jaded by Hollywood, Sam definitely knows how all the games are played, and he s pretty good at playing a few himself He s not afraid to mess with people or tell them what he really thinks.I liked Sam A well developed character, I have to say that at times he reminded me a little bit of the narrator...

    I just liked this book so much I started reading it on a plane to a conference, and by the time I got off of the airport shuttle at the hotel, I had finished it, which was a good thing, since I would have had trouble focusing on anything else with that sitting in my bag It is a great concept for a book, and the characters are complex and interesting While there are parts that you know will work out in a certain way, there are enough twists to get you there that you are on the edge of your seat I just liked this book so much I started reading it on a plane to a conf...
