Summer Read Review & Giveaway - Easy on The Eyes by Jane Porter


On Tuesday I finished up Easy on the Eyes by Jane Porter (available July 22). I am realizing how much I have missed over the last 20 years of my life in the Chick Lit department. These book are quick reads and so much fun.

Easy on the Eyes is about Tiana Tomlinson who at 38 is experiencing the cold, hard truth about the fickleness of being a celebrity in America today. She is the anchor of a top rated nightly entertainment program and her bosses have been dropping hints about her on screen time by bringing on a younger co-anchor. Are you really over the hill at 38? By Hollywood standards, you are. Tiana, has everything going for her to the outside world, but on the inside she is a widow, approaching 40, with a boy toy actor boyfriend who is on location with a hot young starlet. It doesn't help that the one guy she keeps running into, is a high powered, handsome and charming plastic surgeon to the stars.

What I loved about this book: It reads like a movie. I could see it before my eyes. The dialogue is witty and the characters are real. I love reading celebrity trash magazines and this book had a nice balance of fictional characters entwined with enough celebrity references to make me smile. If I were to write a book I would totally write my characters running into the likes of George Clooney or rubbing elbows with Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson.

To read an except go here.

Running out this month and getting a few more Jane Porter books such as Flirting With Forty and Odd Mom Out.

While I don't have a brandy new copy to giveaway this time I do have my review copy!
