"All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality -- the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape."

In this story, Hollywood is taken on at full tilt!  The book follows three actress wannabees, both their successes and failures.  Tally Jones is the main character though as she is discovered and starts to live out her true Hollywood dream.  She takes the place of veteran actress Susie Sheppard on a hit nighttime drama and the ratings skyrocket.  

Unfortunately Susie's movie career crashes and burns due to her own "diva" and and sexual exploits, so she returns to take back her place on the nighttime drama even if she has to use blackmail to do it.  She also decides to ruin Tally's life and her dream at any cost. 

Tally's life also goes threw some dire straits on it's own with a financial adviser that turns out to be a crook and all the games the paparazzi play in any actor's life. She is determined to turn her life around and fight for what is rightfully hers both in her love life and in her career.

The other two wannabees lives take different directions but they always remain friends and are their for each other through thick and thin.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS BOOK!!!  Yes, you already know I am a huge fan of Days of our Lives where Lisa played Billie Reed from 1992 - 1995, 2002-2003 and again recently this year. I loved her on Dancing With the Stars and in her reality show with her husband Harry Hamilin, Harry Loves Lisa.  She is a successful business woman, a hard working mom, and had another book called Rinnavation: Getting Your Best Life Ever.  

But boy CAN THIS GIRL WRITE FICTION OR WHAT??  I am sure being a daytime drama actress and living the Hollywood lifestyle gave her plenty of ideas for the wonderful book and this reviewer hopes she has plenty more fiction stories left to tell.

This book is a page turner full of drama, sex and excitement!! It is a great beach read, a cozy up by the fire read, a wonderful "escape into a good book!!" read.  This is Chick-Lit at it's finest, a great book to share with your BFF's.  

If you are not rushing out to buy this book, you better be putting it on your Christmas lists.  This is a true winner, a book not to be missed!!!

Lisa, I hope you are working on another fiction novel. I can't wait to read it!!!
