    Wonderfully crafted!

    This is one of the most well written books that I have read EVER! I love the rich characters and I feel that both the love interests in the book are well deserving of Ellery and that it was good for her to leave them both to discover herself first. I am excitedly looking forward to the next two installments.

    Black Fingernailed Reviews

    In the Spotlight is the first book in a three part series called Mayne Attraction by Ann Mauren.


    I want to start by saying that there will not always be positive reviews on this blog. At some point or another there will come a book I just didn't like. I just wanted to get that point across before I tell you how much I LOVED this book!


    Romance might not always be my first pick, but a good coming of age novel with a complicated love triangle always gets a top spot on my list. :P


    As far as love triangles go this one is pretty complicated and really detailed.


    There were a few points there where I was just like will they just kiss already and get it over with??? But it was worth the wait and very amusing. I really liked the overly charming manner in which Ash and Gray speak to Ellery (especially Ash)


    The most interesting aspect is also the book's drawl. It almost had me looking over my shoulder thinking 'I wonder if there is a totally hot and really nice stalker watching my every move, who is consequently in love with me.' But of course my life isn't interesting enough for someone to stalk me.or is it? (OK shutting down my inner fantasy now and getting back to the review)


    There is this scene in the book where Ellery is describing Bill Bryson's work. She uses the term 'It's like the literary version of carrots in carrot cake.' Now I don't actually like carrots in carrot cake so here's how I'll describe In the Spotlight by Ann Mauren.


    It's like chocolate cheesecake with extra pieces of chocolate on top. In simpler terms YUM!!!


    I was very satisfied with the ending. The ending actually made the whole book. It was somehow exceedingly rewarding to see Ellery stand on her own two feet, and make her own decisions.


    I really enjoyed this book and think it's worth a read.

    Not very enjoyable

    I read this book up to about 300 pages and absolutely nothing happened. I kept on waiting and waiting for something major to happen but nothing did. I think the author was focused on little details that the reader didnt need to know about but you never know, maybeby the end of the book on the 817pg those details did matter but I coyldnt suffer through all the way until then. So you never know there could have been a pretty good ending.

    Internal suspense

    This book is all about personal growth and strength of character development while a young women learns about first and forever love. It is so unique in presentation, internal dialogue tells the story, and spot on for a girl's brain chatter. Which makes it even more of a surprise that i was fully engaged the entire novel. But it is pure evil not to have part two ready in the wings, and part three with a release date. Congrats on a success, don't make us wait too long! And for heavens sake charge something, you have earned it!!!

    AMAZING!

    I did not have high expectations for this book,which was free in the Nook store. My sole reason for beginning this book was to kill some time; however, the book captured my attention from the beginning and I finished it in one day! It more than exceeded my expectations in fact it became one of my favorite books and I am so excited ti read the next two. The main characters are all lovable and the story line is intriguing. As soon as I finished I suggested it to my sister and after she read it she loved it as much as I did;now we both lie in wait for the next two.

    I really enjoyed this book. In fact, I could not put it down! Ellery is
    not a helpless girl, she has a fire to her. Ash's character made me
    smile a lot, you could tell he loved Ellery with all his heart and he
    would not let her get hurt. The best part was that you could really
    feel the turmoil that Ellery was feeling between Ash and Gray. She was
    not just messing around with 2 guys because she could, she truely loved
    them both.

    I read this book in less than two days (quiet a feet with how long it is). I simply could not put it down! Very well written with a wonderful story line and very engaging characters. I recommend this book to all my family and friends, and to anyone who loves books and great stories! A must read for everyone!

    I think that this is one of the best books I have ever read and it was free! I liked how Ellery discovered what was going on and how she handled the situation. The author did an excellent job of portraying her character in such a way that I was confused about her suitors right along with Ellery. I also appreciated how clean the story was but I still received that giddy first love feeling that I read love story for. Overall an excellent book that kept me smiling and left me with a good feeling. I even loved the way it ended. Some endings leave me unfulfilled but this one gave me hope for the future.

    Great Read!

    I stumbled across this book and was drawn in mostly by the cover. After reading the description I thought I would give it a shot. It sat in my library for quite some time. But after opening it, this book wont sit forgotten anymore (since been added to my favorites shelf, to be read and enjoyed again).

    I first took this to be a quick romance read. However its a bit of romance, mystery, and life. The main character Ellery is a very likeable young woman. Shes quirky and shy but you get to watch her grow and find herself throughout the book. Her story is interesting. You also get drawn into the characters of her peculiar friends. And last but not least the two loves of her life Ash & Gray. Very different men, but equally devoted to her. I must be honest in saying I started off rooting for Ash, but was quickly won over by Grayson once he entered the story as more than someine of her past.

    Definately cant wait for the remaining 2 books to come out by this author.
    I would recommend this to friends and nook readers. Ive already made note to read again by adding to my fav shelf!

    This was an amazing book! I couldn't put it down! Every time I thought one thing would happen, something else would happen that completely surprised me! I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a book on romance with a bit of mystery and hard choices.
