Did I enjoy this book: 
I did enjoy this book. It was a good addition to the series, which I have thoroughly enjoyed so far. (You can find my reviews here: Someone Else’s Fairytale,  Nobody’s Damsel, and Break It Up.)

This was a different read, not about Jason or Chloe but their niece and roommate–mainly the roommate. Lizzie Warner is a former child star trying to make it as an adult actress. She has her struggles and expectations. She also is in need of a true relationship/friendship. She finds a true friendship in Kyra and an unlucky acquaintance. I don’t want to give anything away, so I will just say that this story is sweet and unexpected. Will love prevail? Will Lizzie be able to find and keep her safe space? It is a good story that won’t take long to get through, mainly because you won’t want to put it down.

I did expect more from Kyra, but she wasn’t missed. And I was surprised by the epilogue.  Now,  I must go and start the fourth book in the Someone Else’s Fairytale series, My Wicked Half-Sister.


Would I recommend it: Sure! It is a good story and a good addition to the Someone Else’s Fairytale series.


About the book – from Goodreads: 
Everyone needs a safe space.

For Lizzie Warner, that space has always been in front of the camera on her hit show, or on stage to a sold out concert arena. Since before she can remember, she’s been a star, but that may be about to change.

She’s nineteen. Her show has been cancelled and now she’s going to play the lead in a new prime time drama series, but is the world ready to take her seriously, or will she be typecast as the cute tween queen forever?

Her network has decided to be aggressive and has invested millions of dollars in an ad campaign for her show, money she’s not sure she can earn back. Her co-star can’t stand her, and the writing for the show turns out to be poor at best. The only reason Lizzie didn’t walk away from the job offer to begin with is because she’s broke, the victim of a decade of bad money management.

Then there’s Devon, the personal trainer at her gym. Arrogant and abrasive, he’s the last guy she should ever find attractive, but she has a hopeless crush on him anyway, and he doesn’t seem entirely disinterested either. In fact, sometimes he’s downright sweet to her. If only he weren’t an untamable bad boy who uses and dumps women like they’re nothing. Though Lizzie’s friends warn her to stay away, he’s the only person who can create what she needs: a safe space. But is there any way she can break him of his years’ long habit of being a user?
