Synopsis

Losing it all…is a new beginning

Amanda Legend grew up rich and privileged. Anything was hers for the asking, thanks to her superstar father. That is until Amanda’s honesty about bad behavior from her soon-to-be-new Step Mom, a former school chum, lands Amanda on the outs with her beloved father. No Trust fund. No rarified world. Even if Amanda never wanted the LA lifestyle, she now must survive on her own. 

A come-back takes heart….

Ryan Sinclair was nearing the pinnacle of his movie career when he drove his Porsche off Malibu Canyon Road. Lucky to be alive, post rehab he’s ready to start the long climb back to the top. But to prove to Hollywood that he won’t relapse, he’s required to get a sober companion. 

A job she never wanted with the man who helped destroy her life…

Amanda Legend may loathe the entertainment world, but she understands the rules. She also knows Ryan Sinclair, understands alcoholics (she grew up around a few) and now, after being banished from her posh lifestyle, needs a paycheck to get to New York. Amanda accepts the job as sober companion to Ryan Sinclair for his first film post rehab. But Amanda must learn to ignore her attraction to Ryan, because falling for a guy like him would pull her back into a world she desperately wants to escape.

*Each title in the Glamour series may be read as a standalone.*

Synopsis

A promise to keep….

Honoring her mother’s last wish, Lane Channing vows to follow her dreams. She takes the ‘big risk’ and leaves her small Kansas town behind and heads to LA, the city of dreams. She’s got a stellar job lined up, an old jeep, and 20 bucks to last her to her first paycheck. Her hopes shatter when she arrives to find her job’s been given to someone else.  Now she’s broke and will soon be living on the streets if she doesn’t do something fast. Welcome to cutthroat – Lane is most certainly not in Kansas anymore.

On the cusp of success…

Dillon MacAvoy has one goal–to become a star–whatever it takes. Even if it means honing his bad-boy can’t-be-tamed-and-forever-single image. Besides the image isn’t far from the truth. Dillon cares only about his younger brother and his career. He’s on the brink of superstardom if he can just decide on the next right script. But for that, he needs a script reader he can trust.

In a strange twist of fate…

Lane Channing is Dillon’s last chance. If Lane lasts the summer without becoming MacAvoy’s latest conquest, she’s guaranteed a job in entertainment. No problem, as long as she can ignore the heat that pulses through her every time Dillon is in the room. After all, love and commitment with a sweet, hometown girl would only ruin the Dillon MacAvoy brand.

Book Review

 

100000528822250pizapw1402023676

I was introduced to this series by AToMR Tours.  I signed up to read and review book #1 and enjoyed it so much I just had to read and review Broken Glamour, Book #2 in the Glamour Series. I am so happy to have found this wonderful series!

The title of this novel can be seen throughout this whole novel, starting right from the beginning.  Each of the main characters is broken in very different ways, yet also much the same. The story is emotional with both sad and tender elements.

Can LOVE mend what is broken in this hero and heroines hearts???

Open the first page and begin a journey through their world to discover the answer…

 4.0 Roses of Writing Raves

Broken Glamour stays right in line from where Hard Glamour left off.  About a year has passed and one wedding is taking place while another is being planned.  Will either marriage be a happy one? Shh… I am not going to tell. You will just have to read and find out for yourself. All I will say is that a father and daughters relationship will be placed in  jeopardy and two people who know one another become an unlikely star couple.

The writing flows from the pages. The story line lends itself so that the reader wants to keep on reading to know more, more, more…

I did not want to put this novel down. I stayed up nights reading it. Actually starting the read as soon as I received it and ahead of others.

Each chapter lends a voice to the main couple in this novel. So each chapter has POV sections that focus on either Amanda oe Ryan.

Grammar  is excellent, the other story characters float in and out to enhance the story.

I have to admit my favorite parts are the scenes with the dogs…

Overall this was a wonderfully written modern-day romance read.  The hero and heroine had many ups and downs. These ups and downs did have an emotional impact on me. Especially since I am an emotional reader anyway. The tears fell for me in chapters twenty and twenty-two. With tears falling faster and harder in the latter chapter. I had my pillowcase  soaked in my tears. Their romance was so tender and heartfelt…

4.0 Romance Rave

Ah! This novel was filled with kisses, touches, and so much more. Each chapter had some element of romance. From sweet and gentle to hot and naughty!!!  Whether it was actual or suggested, romance can be found from beginning to end in this read…

Here are some of my favorite quotes from Broken Glamour.

“Amanda, Amanda, Amanda.” The whisper of her name on my lips, a tremble from the base of my spine rumbled through my body. My breath jolted out of me in sharp bursts. I doubled forward until the hot throbbing jolt of come spurted from me. I pressed my forehead to the cool tile surface, my body spent from the rush. This desire for Amanda was deep and fierce and dangerous and I didn’t want it to end. ~ RYAN

He leaned closer. He whispered into my ear, “I’m going to break every rule when it comes to you.” He pulsed his finger against my clit. “I am going to sit here and make you come right now in front of all these people. And then, then I am going to take you home and I’m going to fuck you. I’m going to fuck you all night and all of tomorrow and I am going to fuck you so long and so hard that there is no doubt in your mind that you are mine. That I have claimed you and that you are no one else’s, not now and not ever. Not if you leave me, not if I leave you. It doesn’t matter, Amanda. Do you understand?” ~ RYAN

 

Tonight, letting Ryan touch me like that, in such an intimate way in such a public place had meant something to me. More than just getting off. I allowed it to happen and I gave him a piece of me

My mistake. ~ AMANDA

 

Cool air-filled my lungs and my practiced calm clung to my face. Showing emotion, telling Ryan my feelings, would get me nowhere. I would die inside, but that would be my private experience, not one I shared with him. I’d already given him too much. Shame surged through my chest. ~AMANDA

I hope you will enjoy this read and series as much as I have. Now just waiting for book 3 in the series to come out. This one will be about Amanda’s brother…

Happy Reading, Anna
