Publisher's Summary

Fleur Savagar is the most beautiful woman in the world . . . to everyone but herself. With her oversized hands and paddle-boat feet, her streaky blond hair and funny green eyes, she lives a life filled with secrets that began before she was born. That was when her bewitching mother left home to find James Dean and met Errol Flynn instead. Now Fleur has to grow up quickly, and life won't make that easy. Jake Koranda is both New York's most brilliant playwright and Hollywood's hottest actor. Difficult, talented, and tormented, he has no patience for international glamour girls, not even ones with beautiful bodies and smart-aleck mouths. But there's more to the Glitter Baby than shine, and Fleur's tougher than Jake expects. Even with the odds stacked against her, she's fiercely determined to discover the woman she's destined to be. An ugly duckling who can't believe she's turned into a swan . . . A tough-guy movie star with a haunted past . . . In a land of broken dreams, can two unlikely lovers trust their hearts?

Not up to par

If you are expecting another Natural Born Charmer, Heaven Texas or It Had To Be You et al, this book will be a disappointment. This one has no humor, no quirky situations and no memorable one-liners. These characters are full of angst, guilt and Victorian values. Where is the beaver suit? Where is the "premature climax"? Where are the "think naked" lines? Such a shame to wait so long to be so let down.

Not so great

I also adore SEP. She always has witty lines and the dialogue between characters is often fast paced and cheeky. This book, however, lacked that. I simply could not like the characters. The narration was well done, I liked how distinct she made each voice/character. Those musical interludes drove me absolutely insane. I cannot see the purpose they served other than making me think I had hit a button on my ipod that made the audiobook skip. I still love SEP, this just wasn't her at her best. Match Me If You Can and Natural Born Charmer are both winners though.
