5 Star Review: Which one of us doesn't fantasize about our favorite actor falling madly and deeply in love with us? In "Take 2" the main character, Alexandra Daniels, gets to fulfill every girl's fantasy when she catches the eye of sexy Scottish actor Derek Dunbar! You've got to love that this sexy actor falls for, a "real" forty something woman, not your typical Hollywood or model type hottie. The sex scenes, while expressive, are far from offensive or smutty. I enjoyed this story so much I had a hard time putting it down!!! Great first book. I can hardly wait to see where author Linda Bolton takes us next.....
5 Star Review: I finished reading this book yesterday and wanted to think about it before I reviewed it. First of all, it is the only book by this author so I think it is her first one. I really enjoyed the story which hinges on an average woman being on a show with a major actor and something developing after their meeting. Don't want to give anything away. Like I said it was a fun premise because all of us (women) dream about Prince Charming and life in a castle. But life in a castle isn't always quite so wonderful and real life often intrudes. The characters were good but I would have like to see them a little more real--maybe with a little more description. The sex scenes are intimate but not overly graphic so if someone is bothered by such things, it won't be a problem. The pacing was a bit fast--at times I found myself racing to keep up but with a little more description, it wouldn't be a problem. I caught my husband reading some of it while he was at my computer. That he read it voluntarily shows the even men would like this book. I certainly will read her next one.
Alexandra Daniels is a forty-something, hard-working mom, wife and employee. Her life has been plodding along at a snails pace and she’s longing for excitement. She wins a trip to her favorite talk show in New York, the Veronica Becker Show, and it just so happens the actor of her dreams is a guest, Derek Dunbar! Is Alex’s life about to change?
Derek Dunbar is Scottish, an actor and a hunk! Every woman in America drools after him. He has his pick of women but stinks at relationships. At forty, is he longing for a more meaningful relationship? Does he even know how to have one? Is he willing to make the effort or will it just be too complicated?
Alexandra Daniels spent half her life as a dedicated wife and mother. Recently, with her husband working so much he spent little time with her and her daughter all grown up, Alex finally decided to concentrate on herself. She got a gym membership, lost weight, and spent her free time at night catching up on years of movies she missed. To add to her newly found identity, Alex wins a trip to New York to see her favorite talk show taped. While there she meets her movie idle, Derek Dunbar. Can life get any better?
Derek Dunbar went to school to be a lawyer, something his mother loved to brag about. But Derek felt he had another calling: acting. Once he submerged himself into his new career he was destined for stardom...and loneliness. Oh, Derek had the looks, but his work-a-holic mentality made dating difficult, not to mention the paparazzi that followed him everywhere.
