Make it or Break it {Giveaway}

Tinseltown Riff by Shelly Frome

In Hollywood people will do whatever it takes to finally make it. From Ben, the screenwriter living at his Aunt's house who is out of time, to Angelique the gorgeous blonde who wants to revamp her image to get people to start taking her seriously, to a full cast of other quirky characters.

At least I think that's what this book is about, because I didn't quite get it. There is so much that happens in this book, so many characters, and a lot of mystery, that left me more confused than anything else. I couldn't seem to get into the story, and since it was hard for me to really pay attention I just got more and more confused the more I read.

Unfortunately, this book didn't quite work me. Although I did like the Hollywood landmarks I was able to place and recognize, but overall it didn't work for me. That isn't to say it's not for everyone though, and I think if you're able to follow this better than I, you'd probably enjoy it more.


But don't take my word for it! Here's your chance to form your own opinion! I'm giving away one copy of this book. US winners have the option of a print or electronic copy. If you're outside the US, you can win an electronic copy.
