Photographed in the Writer’s Room
Former TV star Brandi Tyler’s big screen debut crashed and burned amid rumours of an affair with her married co-star… Now, she wants nothing more than to quietly slink away from Hollywood. When she’s offered an opportunity to get out of town and work on a project involving the photographer that launched her career, it seems like the perfect escape! Unfortunately for Brandi, her famous face makes hiding out even a huge city like Houston a little tricky.
When the celebrated photographer’s son offers to let her use his home for privacy, it seems like everything is falling into place. Little does she know that Michael Ames a gorgeous best selling author, and he comes with the package! As Brandi makes her way through old photographs and new scandals, Michael struggles with his next project, and they both fight the growing attraction between them.
Maybe a posse of new girlfriends, some Texas-sized boozy brunches, and a little private time in the writer’s room will help this leading lady find her path back onscreen. And, if she can just picture it, maybe this time she’ll even find love?
Brandi’s first film hasn’t been anywhere near as successful as she had hoped, and her career takes even more of a nosedive when the press begin hounding her over an alleged affair she has been having offscreen with her married co-star. Left reeling from the aftermath this has had on not only her career, but in her personal life too, Brandi is desperate to find somewhere off the radar that she can try and recover from this drastic turn of events.
That is when Brandi finds herself embarking on a journey, but it is one in which she hopes will allow her the anonymity that she craves. Here, she finds a group of people who help her heal from the traumas of her past – a group who call themselves the Boozy Brunch Bunch. It is within this group that Brandi meets Michael, and a tentative relationship begins to form between them.
From the initial exchange of a couple of text messages between them, a slow burn romance comes in to play, something which I really enjoyed following as the characters developed and grew as individuals throughout. Both Brandi and Michael have their own troubles to face, and hurdles to overcome if they want to have a real chance at happiness.
This is a quick read, with a lovely storyline and a slow burn romance that keeps you intrigued from the start. I felt for Brandi from the beginning and felt she had been treated rather unfairly by the press, something which we know can – and often does happen unfortunately. The way in which this topic was approached was brilliant and captivating, adding so much to this story.
A lovely, quick read for those who like a lovely romance.
