[The Road to Her Read] E-pub By K.E. Payne
The One Minute Millionaire: The Enlightened Way to Wealth iCan t be the only person who has wondered whatt would be like to star Daisy 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 bookt 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 t did plot just revolving around Holly chasing Elise After a while t did 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 your 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 t did leave you with positive fuzzies at the end If you like the LGBT genre or are just curious and want to know than give this book a try Two actors who struggles with their feelingsI usually enjoy this kind of theme but I wasn t fascinated with this book The story s 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 n love with both characters I wasn t hooked I ve tried But I didn t felt anything An enticing premise that falls short I enjoyed K E Payne s 365 Days but this one suffers from poor line editing
