Reviewed at: CBLS Reviews Sinara Ellis has written a clever book within a book starring a character with her name. The two plots work well with each other and move the story along. I loved Sinara, the main character, and her active imagination. The many ways she fantasizes disposing of people who bug her, mostly her boring husband, cracked me up. Her writing career has stalled and she has a book due. Struggling with writing about a character that has lost its allure seems to me to be a realistic problem for a writer. Poor Sinara, her life is a mess on all levels. I liked the fact that she decided to do something to pull herself out of the doldrums and make a change in her life. A hysterical retelling of a typical clichéd romance featuring Bare Chested Stoneloins and Lusty, the virgin he loves, gives way to her writing a nice contemporary romance. This romance has all of the elements that are missing in Sinara's marriage. The disparaging by her husband about her writing a romance novel mirrors the way many people feel about romance as literature. His lack of support is offset by her friends, who keep giving her a push when she needs it. Alexis, Sinara's alter ego in her romance novel, has the courage to go for what she wants in life even though the outcome might not be the desired one. The lesson Sinara learns from Alexis is that you have to make things happen for yourself. The ending of the book has a nice little twist that puts the finishing touch on an enjoyable story. This was a fun book to read and one that when finished I wished had gone a little longer.
This is one of the more entertaining books that I have come across. I loved reading this from beginning to end. The story was great and the way the author handled the transition from real life to fantasy was perfect. I laughed out loud in several places and just found the whole concept of writing about writing so intriguing that I just couldn¿t put it down. (Why didn¿t I think of this!!) I don¿t think it was quite fair of Ellis to publish this as a romance. It could just as easily been an autobiography but it was so well written that I¿m glad she did it this way because I wouldn¿t have read it had it been a bio and I¿m very glad I did read it. I highly recommend this book because of the unique writing style and excellent story line. It¿s almost like reading two books at once. I cried and empathized with the main character or should I say characters many times and had a great time doing it.
