Ella is a big movie star, Cam a successful yoga instructor. In a romance. Superficial and perfect? Nah, they both are flawed, relatable, completely believable characters. There’s also a great supporting cast; for example, I found myself to be a bit (or a lot!) like Vanya among certain people..
A word of warning, though: Living by Lise Gold starts with a bang, not sparing the reader at all. It’s heavy, OK? Most of the drama afterwards is of an easier kind, though – this is, after all, a romance. Slow burn, but if you’re like me, you’ll probably enjoy every minute and don’t want them to rush.
I really liked how depression, its treatment and the side-effects of stardom were handled. Special kudos for the gorgeous cover!
