review Ý PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ö K.E. PayneTwo actors who struggles with their feelingsI usually enjoy this kind of theme but I wasn t fascinated with this book The story is good easy to read but there was lacking I guess the chemistry And didn t have a chance to picture Holly s physical appearance I didn t fell in love with both characters I wasn t hooked I ve
TRIED BUT I DIDN T FELT ANYTHING I VEBut I didn t felt anything I ve a few other novels by Payne about but I ve always been hesitant to pick them up Why Not because of the genre that s for sure I love books that tackle difficult and uite controversial topics which all of hers do do However the reviews I have skimmed over have never been too good Despite this The Road to Her caught my eye and I couldn t help but try it It actually left me pleasantly surprisedHolly Croft is a star of the soap opera Portobello Road and has been for the last eight ears of her life However the directors and writers believe that her character Jasmine deserves some time in the limelight so they create a new storyline for her Jasmine will be a lesbian Enter Elise the *Actress Cast To Play *cast to play s on screen love interest But it isn t just Jasmine who is developing an attraction to the new girl Holly begins to find that she can t get Elise off her mind and soon falls in love but can she convince Elise to give it a goLove love loved both of the characters of Holly and Elise I did at times feel that Elise character slid constantly changing between being very clingy and very cold towards Holly However the chemistry between the two was undeniably strong so I ll let the character problem go On a whole Holly was an enjoyable narrative to read from and I felt like I could connect with her easily something key with books dealing with this topicThe storyline was pretty good Not always as gripping as I first thought it d be I mean I can t be the only person who has wondered what it would be like to star in a television show right I wanted to get a feel of what life on set was like and I think that fell a bit short A lot of the scenes between Jasmine and Casey Elise s character were only mentioned and I feel like that was a key part to miss out I was also disappointed that for most of the book it was that familiar teen angst of she loves me she loves me not she loves me with the plot just revolving around Holly chasing Elise After a while it did get a bit tediousHowever although this book was set on a television set I think a main focus of the story was about coming to terms with our sexuality Although she wasn t the main character Elise s journey towards accepting that she did like women was eye opening and something I think a lot of people can learn from for a variety of reasonsDespite provoking some serious eye rolls and the writing being uite mediocre I liked The Road to Her a lot It was a uick easy read and it did leave Restful Sleep you with positive fuzzies at the end Ifou like the LGBT genre or are just curious and want to know than give this book a try I like Holly I really do But Elise God Almighty She s the very description of what s wrong with the KardashiansAlso the fact that Holly did not noticed how Elise kisses tasted like semen is just beyond me well she liked her because she s hawt And who fucks with a man named Stig anyway and a co worker Bobby Cant be too surprised if Elise have a designer 1000 mouthwash what a slutty piece of bitchthis book is a torture thanks to elise but im still reading it because of Hollystill page 150 barely there This is a story of a oung British actress who falls for her co star who has been recently added to the cast as a lesbian love interest Jasmin whatever her name is is an actress and she falls for this other actress who initially insults and intimidates her but because she is so hawt still dominates Jasmin s thoughts Having the girl pick up a guy at the bar and claim to sleep with him only adds to Jasmine s desire for her The dialogue reads like middle school and I could only make it to the 50% mark This isn t a review so much as a note to myself no. Sparks fly when twenty ear old Holly Croft star of the UK soap Portobello Road meets Elise Manford the actress who’s going to play her on screen love interest in the soap’s first ever lesbian storyl.
