Overview

Make Him Look Good by Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez

The "him" in Make Him Look Good is Ricky Biscayne, sexy Latin singing sensation who has taken the pop world by storm. But it takes more than swiveling hips and dreamy eyes to get to the top of the charts. The women who orbit Ricky are:

— Milan, Ricky's new publicist, and her sister Geneva whose Club G promises to have Miami's hottest opening ever

— Jill Sanchez, a media-manic Latina star who has crossed over from CDs to perfume, clothes and movies

— Jasminka, Ricky's gorgeous Croatian model wife

— Irene, a firefighter whose high school romance with Ricky was the last love in her life, eking out an existence for herself and her daughter Sophia, who is beginning to suspect that she and Ricky Biscayne look a little too much alike

With several satisfying romances set against Miami's music, club and modeling scenes, Make Him Look Goodis irresistible fiction from one of America's most original voices.

Not one of her best books but I did enjoy it. I really love "the dirty girls" series so I thought I'd try one of her other books. The beginning is a little slow but it does get better towards the middle of the book. I almost gave up on it in the beginning but like I said when I got to the middle I started to get into the book. The characters are pretty good and I do like how the writer tells the story from each characters point of view. I did enjoy how all the characters came together towards the end of the book too, it ended pretty good.

This wasn't my favorite of her books but I still loved it. The characters were amazing as usual and by the middle of the book I was completely hooked. With her books I always find myself falling in love with the male characters, it's hard not to. As I was reading this book I started to wonder if Jill Sanchez was based on JLo. Certain things about her and that happened to her reminded me a little of the singer/actress. This is a great beach book and I highly recommend it.

It was a good book but could have been better ... did not like the obvious Jill/JLo comparision ... thought that was uncreative ... and a way to slam on JLo (aren't we suppose to be supporting fellow Latinas-another jab in the book was on Cameron Diaz) and the plot line was obvious on how it would end...first two books by AVR a lot better...I still can't put down one of her books when I start reading them.

I do not recommend this book. However, if you must read it then do yourself a favor and check it out of the library! The author's unoriginal ideas, poorly written style and numerous grammatical errors make it confusing, uninspired and silly. It is embarrassing that the author is being crowned one of the nations Top 25 Hispanics. She is a horrible writer, and not very inspirational. I also found it amusing that because being 'Latina' is so hot right now that publishers have to create a writer where there is no substance. A character in her book that is a 'phony' musician is named Ricky Bascayne. Apparently Ricky is a pretty boy who pretends to sing and write, but the real singer and writer is his friend Matthew. Valdes-Rodriguez is definitely the ¿Ricky Bascayne¿ of the book publishing world. With one exception ¿ there is no Matthew that is the crowing glory writer. Valdes-Rodriguez cannot write and her publishers do not have editors to edit her material. What an embarrassment to Latina authors that can write! Finally, US magazine, Star magazine and other tartlet publications should sue Valdes-Rodriguez and her publishers for Valdes pulling Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck stories out of the tabloids and making them central characters in her book. They accomplished this creative feat by slightly changing their names. What an embarrassment!

I was very disappointed in this book. It was so abundantly clear from the get-go that 'Jill Sanchez' was JLo ('JSan'? Seriously?) that it was pathetic. I laughed and cringed at the same time when I saw the author noted as one of the most 'original voices' in this genre on the flap of her book. Major overstatement, in my opinion. There's nothing original about plucking your characters out of the tabloids and renaming them for legal purposes. Her characters were weak, underdeveloped and boring. The storyline was transparent. I loved her first two books but would recommend checking this one out of the library if you 'must' read it. Don't waste your time and money.

I could not put this book down. Alisa has not disappointed me yet with each of her books getting better than the one before. The whole Jill Sanchez/Jennifer Lopez thing I could have done without but it didn't take away from me enjoying the book.

This book was a fun,witty, summer read about the effect one unimportant man can have on a group of woman. Melan is a character you just learn to love and shows how friendships and love can be found in funny places.

I definitely thought Playing with Boys was AVR's best book. In Make Him Look good, it was obvious what was going to happen after each introduction of the characters. THe character Jill Sanchez has many 'Tabloid' traits to Jennifer Lopez which is unfair because AVR also depicts the character to be moraless and devoid of ethics. I know its fiction, but I think the character could have been better developed from scratch rather than an ugly shell of J-Lo.

I really enjoyed this book. I've read all of Alisa's books, and this one is my favorite, thus far. It's witty, funny, and one of the characters, Jill Sanchez, sounds a little bit like J. Lo...jeje.. it's amuzing.

This book was ok but compared to Alisa's other books it isn't the best. However, it kept my attention even if I could go a day or two without reading what happens next.
