(11) What I Did For Love by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
I have lost sleep the last two nights because of this book. So, I start by apologizing to the coworkers who put up with my cranky butt, because I chose to stay up until the wee hours of the morning not once, but twice to finish this book.
But, let me say, it was well worth the lost sleep! What I Did for Love was everything I expected from Susan Elizabeth Phillips & more.
Georgie York is America's sweetheart. She is a beloved child actor all grown up. But life hasn't turned out exactly like she had anticipated. Her beloved husband just divorced her to marry the Hollywood version of Mother Theresa. Her last three movies have been complete flops. The paparazzi hounds her mercilessly. And her former costar, Sexy Bramwell Shepherd keeps turning up at the worst time possible. Like Vegas.
Throw in some spiked drinks & a wedding certificate & you have Georgie's worst nightmare. Or is it? She has been trying to find a way to let the world know that her ex-husband may have broken her heart, but he didn't break her spirit. Is her "marriage" to Bram the way to normalcy for her? And Bram has his own reasons for wanting the "marriage" to last, at least for six months. He needs America's Sweetheart's respectability to rub off on him in order to do the project he was meant to do.
What I Did For Love is a story that could have been ripped right from the Tabloid Headlines. Throw in a power struggle with her domineering father, a studio exec, a housekeeper from hell & the Personal Assistant every power couple dreams of & you have a wonderful love story that will melt your heart & leave you hoping for your own bad boy to marry.
