Rating – 5/5
Life has become a farcical mess for icy British A-lister Elizabeth Thornton. America’s most-hated villain stars in a top-rated TV medical drama that she hates. Now, she’s been romantically linked to her perky, new co-star, Summer, due to the young woman’s clumsiness. As a closeted actress, that’s the last thing Elizabeth needs. If she could just get her dream movie role, life would be so much better. The only problem is that the eccentric French film-maker offering it insists on meeting her “girlfriend”, Summer, first.
Summer Hayes is devastated when her co-star shuns her for accidentally sparking rumours they’re lovers. Now the so-called British Bitch has the audacity to ask Summer to pretend to be her girlfriend to get her a role? Elizabeth doesn’t even like Summer! Oh, how she’d love to tell her no. And Summer definitely would if it wasn’t for the fact she’s maybe a tiny bit in love with the impossible woman.
A lesbian celebrity romance about gaining love, losing masks, and trying to stick to the script.
|This year is starting to look promising regarding my book choosing skill! The few I’ve read has all been fantastic, but I get the feeling that this one is going to be one of the best books I read this year.
“And Playing the role of Myself” is one of my favourites. So, I was excited to read this one. And well, Lee Winter definitely nailed it. Elizabeth who has an Ice queen reputation(but actually is a very sweet and lovely person) meets Summer who look young and is loved by everyone(who has a little crush on Elizabeth). There is fauxmance, there is humour, angst, drama, unrequited love, there is a little bit of everything that makes a romance novel a masterpiece and keeps the readers hooked.
The secondary characters were wonderfully placed, the pace was perfect, the romance was sweet and beautiful, the chemistry was obvious, the dialogues were authentic. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I love this one and is highly recommended! The only thing I wish for was for a little bit more of the Elizabeth and Summer alone time as a couple. I waited a long time for them to get together. I’m entitle to a little inside scoop of their couple romance!!
