    This is the second book I¿ve read by Barth and I wasn¿t disappoi

    This is the second book I’ve read by Barth and I wasn’t disappointed. This book had romance, laughter, some tears, lots of conflict and was able to hold my interest from the first pages. A large part of the story took place in the theater and although I don’t know much about that world it was easy to envision yourself there as the story unfolded. Between the rehearsals, costuming, the myriad of characters involved in one part of the theater or another and through to opening night you felt yourself a part of the energy and even the tension that surfaced at times. You could also smell the cosmetics, feel the heat of the lights and hear the back slapping and applause. The friendship between Linnea and Ingrid was portrayed realistically and you could feel the emotions they felt whether it be happiness, disbelief or just support they gave each other. Luke and Wes thought they were friends as well as business partners and associates but Wes was
    frustrated easily by Luke’s actions and very often only thought of himself. I especially liked the ending which gave me the happily ever after I was hoping for but didn’t think would actually happen. My only disappointment was that the story seemed to end so abruptly. A few more pages would have been nice. This was an enjoyable read and I look forward to reading other books by this author in the future. Review by JoAnne. Book Provided by Author.

    Engrossing

    Lights, camera, action! Act Like We're In Love is an interesting story, but takes a while to kick off and generate interest.

    The first situation is one we've seen before. Linnea is literary swept off her feet by Luke, who is obviously someone famous, though she initially doesn't realize.

    However, as I read on, the plot slowly developed into something more and the somewhat stereotypical characters grew on me. Nonetheless, the author does become a bit repetitive on how fabulous Luke is and how fantastic his kisses are. The descriptions, though are well composed and sweet (along with spicy at the right moments), and the novel has some great humorous moments (Luke's manager, Wes becoming angry was hilarious) as well as some very witty dialogue. Those were the things that kept me turning pages.

    The secondary characters were well managed, though the way the relationship between Ingrid and Wes was heading, they could have gotten a novel to themselves (actually that would have been quite interesting).

    The best thing about Act Like We're In Love is without doubt the theatre-like feeling I got while reading the novel. Loving theatre and having had the chance to be part of the backstage, I really felt the nerves, the preparation, the gossip, and the theatre jokes that run throughout the novel.

    Although the ending was a bit abrupt after everything the characters went through, it was well thought out and very endearing. Act Like We're In Love is a sweet, cute read that will leave you feeling happy and satisfied.
