    This book is hard to describe, it has so many things to it! In the beginning I felt things started off a little slow for my taste, but when they did start happening, there was a lot happening! My first thought was, too much. But then I got into it and really liked it. It surprised me, what happened in the story and also some of the characters. There is some erotic scenes in it, which surprised me as well, but that is because I do not read the book synopsis´ or if I have a physical copy, the back cover. But that is not what this story centers around and there is not much of the description. I think it actually quite suited the story even if it first surprised me. If even a little part of this is what it´s like on a movie location, well I am not jealous! I liked that the storys main character wasn´t an actor, but someone who does something else in a movie. It gave a large idea of all the things that happens around making a movie.

    The Rebel Princess is truly unlike any book I’ve ever read. It’s hard
    for me to classify it in one category, or to express why it’s so
    different. For starters, it’s written by an author who has real
    knowledge of the inside and outside of the movie industry, and it shows.
    The book starts with a bang, and from the very beginning it pulled me
    in. I had no idea the movie business actually was set up like this.
    Needless to say, I was more than a little surprised by the discoveries I
    made throughout this novel, but all in a good way. The book isn’t too
    technical, although it conveys the entire process of movie making from
    the beginning to the end. As a reader, I absorbed all this information
    without even realizing it. There’s no trace of ‘info-dumping’ anywhere
    in this book. As the story unfolded, I learned more about the movie
    business, while still staying right in the middle of the action. Don’t
    think there’s no story in the book because it focuses largerly on the
    life and chaos on set. There is a story, and an intriguing one at that.
    The main character is one of the most intriguing characters I’ve ever
    come across in a novel. She has a myriad of contradicting emotions, an
    ambitious goal fitting for Hollywood and an attitude to match it. The
    side characters are each unique individuals as well, and they’re
    well-developed and three-dimensional. Cardboard characters? This author
    has obviously never heard of that before, thank goodness! Not only was
    it a huge relief to be greeted by an, in my opinion, original,
    well-researched storyline, to add refreshing characters to do was a
    great asset as well. I also loved how author Anne M. Strick never once
    failed to keep the tension running high – from page one until the end I
    was biting my nails waiting to see what was going to happen next. The
    Rebel Princess is a must-read. If you’ve ever been interested in
    Hollywood, you need to get this book. If you’re not that interested in
    life on set, but you feel like reading a contemporary romance with
    enough suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat from start to end,
    then you need to read this book as well. It’s original, it’s intriguing,
    it’s sexy, it’s daring. I’m truly amazed by this author’s talent and her
    ability to write about believable characters in believable situations.
    Also, did I mention that his happens on location? Add an exotic location
    in the mix and you know you’re in for one hell of a ride.
