Review: Alex is a housewife that's been married a long time. Her daughter is grown and in college, her marriage getting stale. She has made some changes in her appearance and wins a trip to a talk show where she meets Derek her favorite movie star fantasy man in the flesh. He asks her on a date and she finds her attraction strong. Is it mutual or is she just another one of his conquests?
This story held really good premise Who doesn't dream of actually becoming involved with their favorite star and sweeping o him off his feet. I know I do. I loved Alex and Derek and how they both are dealing with the changes in their lives as they mature. However the descriptions of all the scenery the sets and minute details were a bit much and slowed the story down for me. I also found it flipping back and forth a lot from Alex and Derek and sometimes even a minor characters view confusing me at times. There were lots of twists and turns such as the kidnapping and the Magician that really seemed to get interesting then all of a sudden fall flat or just disappear I would have liked to see more involvement at the end with Tristan the magician and his anger. But all in all this is a good romance, with some mystery and intrigue and some sensuous loving sex scenes ( I would have liked to seen a bit more of the sex scenes with Alex and Derek)
Recommendations: If you like Strong female leads, older more mature characters, romance and intrigue and a lot of scenic details this one is for you!
