Academy Award winning actress Reilly Ransome has a life that others can only dream about: fame that opens every door, more money than she can ever spend, and freedom to do what (and whom) she pleases. But something is missing, and the harder she seeks to find it, the more evident the absence becomes.
She attempts to fill the gap with behavior that becomes increasingly dangerous until one night, she wakes up on a bench at a deserted beach to find that she has committed the unthinkable. Resolved to live the rest of her life doing penance for her mistake, Reilly withdraws from her whirlwind existence and finally finds what she’s been missing.
But knowing something and accepting something are two different things. It is only when a transformative experience that no one sees coming and turns her life on its axis, that Reilly can finally forgive herself and fill in that missing piece.
Kimberly Cooper Griffin is a technical program manager by day and a romance novelist by night. Born in San Diego, California, Kimberly joined the Air Force, travelled the world, and eventually settled down in Denver Colorado, where she lives with her wife, the youngest of her three daughters, and a menagerie of dogs and cats.
When Kimberly isn’t working or writing, she enjoys a variety of interests, but at the core of all of it all, she has an insatiable desire to connect with people and experience life to its fullest. Every moment is collected and archived into memory, a candidate for being woven into the fabric of the tales she tells.
If there was a 6th star I would go for it without a doubt! This is not your typical fluffy summer read this is a brilliant, well written, full of shocking moments, anger, love, hot sex scenes, craziness, drugs, death, forgiveness, glamour, fashion, yoga etc.
It's a mix between a solid romance story with a hint of "orange is the new black" and "wentworth" and the glamour of Hollywood.. It's quite interesting that this is the 1st book by this wonderful author.
Characters were so good and the connection between the 2 main characters was so strong. The supporting characters were also very likeable! I even started liking the mother :)
It's going down as One of my favorites for sure!
