Broken Glamour can be read as a stand-alone! :)
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.
Surprisingly, I really enjoyed reading this book though I wasn't that crazy about it. Broken Glamour is steamy, heartbreaking, enticing and refreshing. It took quite a while but I was soon drawn into the world of Ryan and Amanda.
It was kinda sickening how Amanda's ex-best friend became her stepmother and how evil she was to Amanda. I like how we get to see Amanda slowly starting to step up and speak up for herself. I was slightly irritated with how meek Amanda was at first. Girl, you gotta step up for yourself and not like a cold hearted bitch step all over you!
I loved watching their emotional growth and how they handled everything that life threw at them, though there were times where I wanted to just shake the hell out of them. It was heartbreaking to read about the things they had to endure to read their goals though. All in all, this is a great book!
