Lola Santisi is the daughter of once high-powered Hollywood director Paulie, who’s banking on his latest picture to launch him back into Hollywood royalty. Lola, however, is having a tough time figuring out what it is she wants to do with the rest of her life, especially after having been cast by her father in the film that caused his Hollywood fall from grace. Acting is not her forte, but Lola knows a lot of people and is crazy about fashion. Her BGF (best gay friend) is a totally great designer and she takes on the task of trying to get him “worn” at the Academy Awards by some famous actress as yet to be determined. What follows are Lola’s exploits dealing with crazy famous actresses, her BGF’s neuroses and her vow to not allow herself to become involved with any actor, no matter how gorgeous. In fits and starts Lola achieves what she set out to do and success in her career and love life are hers by the end of the book.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It has all those elements that one wants when reading a chick-lit book about Hollywood. Name dropping, crazy famous people, behind-the-scenes looks, gorgeous men and… I could go on and on. I loved the character of Lola and laughed out loud at some of the things she endured all in the name of her love and belief in her BGF. If you’re looking for a good read about Hollywood and all that it entails, you’ve come to the right place with this book.
