By Hilary Liftin
4 out of 5 stars
Lizzie Pepper is a young actress looking to make it big after the end of her long-running tv show. She is introduced to Rob Mars, the movie star with the mega-watt smile. He tells her all the right things (interesting how that comes into play later in the story) and sweeps her off her feet. His lavish lifestyle is a shock to her system but she falls right in. Everything seems so perfect, maybe too set up and perfect. Rob belongs to the One Cell Studio, an almost cult-like group that is very hush hush. Does any of this sound familiar? They are soon engaged and Lizzie (who Rob calls Elizabeth) becomes pregnant. Once their twins are born and start to grow, Lizzie begins to see things a bit more clearly and wants out. But can she get out?
This is supposedly not about a certain ex-couple that we all know and it probably is in the writer’s vivid imagination but it can’t be too far off the mark. Hilary Liftin definitely knows her way around a Hollywood story. She had a way of putting you right inside the mindset of Lizzie, when she was letting herself drink the Koolaid and when she wasn’t. It did make me look at the “other: relationship in a different way. This is a fun summer book. If you enjoy the ins and outs of celebrity, you will definitely enjoy this one.
I happily received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
