No More Pretending As predicted DNF Once the page flipping happened it was doomed It started off a 5 in the beginning, then the middle of it devolved to a 3 Then Nope Sorry Try again. Well, I liked this book quite frankly It deals with the relationship between a Hollywood actress and a young lawyer who has had to leave her job in New York to take care of her father and brother after her mother s death Lauren, the actress, is a shy person and is also very careful in keeping her intimacy unexposed to the public, despite her profession Harper, the lawyer, after returning to her hometown forced by the illness of her mother and after her death, forced to stay to care for her yo Well, I liked this book quite frankly It deals with the relationship between a Hollywood actress and a young lawyer who has had to leave her job in New York to take care of her father and brother after her mother s death Lauren, the actress, is a shy person and is also very careful in keeping her intimacy unexposed to the public, despite her profession Harper, the lawyer, after returning to her hometown forced by the illness of her mother and after her death, forced to stay to care for her younger brother and their father who has been sunk by the loss Their first encounter is somewhat uneven, their subsequent encounters do not seem to take them anywhere, but little by little, because the work forces them to see each other almost daily, they begin a rather sweet and romantic relationship Of course there are ups and downs, misunderstandings and lack of confidence on both parts in believing their relationship can reach something serious But the story is flowing quite smoothly and with some moment of anguish at the end, ends happyly But the resolution is too abrupt, although all the problematic issues are solved in some way, the author does it too quickly for my taste Anyway, that does not tarnish the good feeling that this story has left me with Alluring screen actress Lauren Langham excels at the roles she plays both on and off camera She s so good at pretending, in fact, that no one watching her popular rom coms or dazzling red carpet appearances would assume she was anything but charming, outgoingand straight While preparing to shoot a new film in a small Texas town, Lauren wonders what she would be like if her own life had followed a different script Then she meets Harper Ward, a waitress at the local diner, whose natural beauty leaves her speechless Harper mistakes Lauren s reaction for being stuck up and takes an instant dislike to her Like Lauren, Harper isn t exactly what she seems and also wonders what her life would be like if family obligations hadn t turned her world upside down When the film s lecherous director hires Harper to work as his assistant, she and Lauren find themselves fighting a powerful attraction that quickly escalates into an overwhelming passion But where can they go from here ❴Reading❵ ➻ Muerte en Hamburgo (Jan Fabel, Author Craig Russell – Ralphslaurensoutlet.co.uk in fact ❴Download❵ ➾ Jazz Age Stories Author F.
