Review : Broken Glamour

A New Adult Contemporary Romance Series By Maggie Marr

Book #2
Released April 20, 2014
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

My Thoughts:

There is so much to love about this book. I loved watching the drama unfold between Amanda and her ex-best friend/stepmother. I thought it was interesting watching Ryan side of story and how his addiction and accident changed his life. I loved watching the connection between the two. I loved all the characters and seeing a bit of Lane and Dillon in the book. I've noticed a lot of times in these stand alone types of books the characters from the first book kind of disappear into lala land and they are a no show in the second book. I liked that even if the book wasn't focused on Lane and Dillion they still had somewhat of a part in the book. I loved that there was so much going on with the drama and steam got me hooked from start to end. So as a warning, once you start this book you won't want to put it down till the very end.

Overall this is a great book and I really loved it, I highly recommend you lovely readers to check out this book! 4.5 of 5 stars!

Book #1
Released January 14, 2014
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.
