Ginger Teague may seem like your typical Hollywood actress with the famous boyfriend, designer clothes, money, and hit TV show, but constantly being in the public eye has its downside.
People seem more interested in her chaotic relationship with her on again/ off again boyfriend than her acting career,and Ginger isn't dealing with her new found fame in a way she always envisioned. She masks her unhappiness with too many parties and an unhealthy habit of binge drinking. As much as she wants love, men find her as a pretty amusement, not the type of girl you take home to mom and dad.
She meets Caspian Norwood, and they start a regimen of flirty emails.
He's a struggling musician that doesn't quite fit her idea of the perfect boyfriend.
He's older, mysterious, cultured, knows exactly what to say and do in all the right situations, and Ginger can't help falling for him. But the world is against them, pushing them apart, and it's beginning to feel as if they are only meant to be friends.
I was super excited to read this story after reading The Last Thing and feel like Briana is definitely a go to author.
I loved Ginger. The way she handled her struggles may not have been the wisest choice, but it made her feel very human to me, countering her 'public' persona. Unfortunately, I had a bit of a hard time connecting with Caspian, which made it hard to enjoy the connection he and Ginger had.
It was great to see what happened with Chase and Quinn, the main characters from The Last Thing and I would still definitely recommend reading it first, unless you enjoy knowing how their story ends before reading how they start.
Overall, a very enjoyable story, I just wish I was able to connect with Caspian more.
