The Lie Women in Hollywood are just pretty faces. But Silvia Bradshaw knows that’s a lie, and she’s ready to be treated as an equal and prove her worth as one of Hollywood’s newest film editors.

But even as their friendship begins to blossom into something more, a lawsuit surfaces, jeopardizing both Ben and Silvia’s jobs—as well as their fledgling romance. Audrey Hepburn once said: “The most important thing is to enjoy your life—to be happy—it’s all that matters.” Silvia agrees. Or she used to. It’s one thing to risk her job and her heart, but can she really risk Ben’s, too? Does she have the right to make decisions for her own happiness when they affect so many other people? The Breakfast With everything to lose, Silvia meets Ben for breakfast at his favorite diner, Tiffany’s, for one last conversation before the credits roll on true love.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Silvia Bradshaw is an assistant film editor, working on a major film--and she has a huge problem since her boss seems completely incapable of doing his job. When she goes to a club to drag him back to the studio to finalize the film just hours before their deadline, she gets an unexpected ally in her former coworker Ben Mason. Not only does Ben help her get her drunk boss back to the office, but when said boss passes out, Ben helps Silvia finish the edits. Silvia soon finds herself looking at Ben in a new light--only to find that he has reconnected with an old girlfriend. While Silvia loves being his friend, she also has to respect his relationship, as hard as it is to smother her feelings. With a little guidance from her grandma, her best friend, and Audrey Hepburn, Silvia will decide what she really wants in life and how she's going to get it. This is a fun contemporary romance. Silvia's a pretty dynamic personality--she gets major points for telling it like it is--and Ben's a total sweetie. I thought the film editing aspect of the plot was really interesting, but I wasn't in love with the constant movie quotes and references and getting inspiration from movies. However, I think that is just because of my tastes, not because of any problem with the book. (I'm not a big movie watcher, and I've only seen a couple of Audrey Hepburn's movies--and I have NOT seen Breakfast at Tiffany's. So that aspect of the book wasn't my favorite, but I think other readers will be totally fine with it. For me, it's a 3.5-star book, but I can easily see other readers rating it higher, because, again, I'm just not that into movies. Great characters (including some of the secondary characters), and a cool plot make this a really nice clean, contemporary romance. I read an ARC via #NetGalley. All opinions are my own.
