Love, Lies, and Breakfast at Tiffany's by Julie Wright, Blog Tour
Women in Hollywood are just pretty faces. But Silvia Bradshaw knows that’s a lie, and she’s ready to be treated as an equal and prove her worth as one of Hollywood’s newest film editors.
She and Ben Mason had worked together as editors before Silvia got her big break, so he’s the perfect person to ask for feedback on her first major film. But even as their friendship begins to blossom into something more, a lawsuit surfaces, jeopardizing both Ben and Silvia’s jobs—as well as their fledgling romance. Audrey Hepburn once said: “The most important thing is to enjoy your life—to be happy—it’s all that matters.” Silvia agrees. Or she used to. It’s one thing to risk her job and her heart, but can she really risk Ben’s, too? Does she have the right to make decisions for her own happiness when they affect so many other people?
With everything to lose, Silvia meets Ben for breakfast at his favorite diner, Tiffany’s, for one last conversation before the credits roll on true love.
I don't know a ton about Audrey Hepburn or her movies, but reading this book definitely made me want to learn more about the Hollywood legend. I really loved Silvia as a main character. Not only was she strong and beautiful, but she was flawed (aren't we all, this made me totally relate to her), and she always saw the positive in people. I loved that, I want to be like that! Anyway, Silvia is this amazing film editor and she works her booty off on this movie and she thinks she may be falling for her old co-worker Ben. What really struck me was that Silvia took her time figuring out how she felt and too often in books, the love part is so rushed. It was nice to read a book where a character takes their time deciding how they do or do not feel. Ben was an awesome leading man; patient, kind, giving, and those eyes! Every female was falling and swooning over those eyes! This book was pretty dang awesome, it had so many moving parts; not just Hollywood, but love life, family life, friends, and trying to figure out how it all should work together.
