Lizzie Medina went to London to reinvent herself. Tired of being the quiet baby sister, and in no hurry to settle into a boring existence in suburbia, she escapes from home at the first opportunity. When she settles in London for a year of post-graduate studies, Lizzie is sure she’ll be able to start a whole new life. Immerse herself in the books she loves. Explore a new country. Work on her dream of writing a novel. She might even be able to find a little bit of excitement for once.
But falling unexpectedly in love with up-and-coming actor Thomas Harper causes Lizzie to re-think… everything. Just as she’s convinced herself this small-town girl from the Midwest can handle this great adventure, Thomas’s career suddenly explodes to superstar levels, and Lizzie finds herself forced to navigate the fame game of red carpets, catty co-stars, gossip magazines, and paparazzi. When she wished for a new life, she had no idea it would be anything like this!
Lizzie must now determine if her love — and her confidence — are strong enough to get her through the complications of dating a movie star. Even if she and Thomas are able to pull through before she has to leave London, how will she deal with the inevitability of returning to a life at home that no longer feels like her own? Will she follow her family’s wishes or follow her heart? Will the Lizzie she discovered in London be strong enough to help her pursue her dreams?
This book is a nice love story…
I bought this book in September last year and it was stored in my Kindle for lots of time, until one night while waiting for somebody at the airport to come back from London, I suddenly discovered I have it there. And as London is one of my favorite cities and I was there before 2 years and already miss the city, I decided to to start this book.
It started very interesting for me as I love to read such stories and the whole book was pretty nice. I enjoyed the walks and touristy explanations, even though some of the crossing sounded impossible.
The story is sweet. Lizzie at first looked like it can never exsist, because she had no idea of the celebrities, but later I reminded myself that I’m in the exact current situation, knowing only Japanese celebrities, so why not… Lizzie…
Thomas Harper is a movie star, who liked a normal girl. That so expected thing when it comes to such books. He plays in the movie adaptation of the Darkness series, which for me is absolutely Dark Angel series by Keri Arthur. And he is gorgeous.
Anyhow, if you want to read sweet love story, little bit travel guide and celebrities – this is your book.
General note: 5.5/10
