[ Review Posted: May 29, 2017 ] - See all my reviews
THE HOUSEWIFE AND THE FILM STAR starts with a bit of a bang…well more like a wobble…of the high heels kind. But then…oh…oh…mmmmm…insta-attraction of the right kind mixed with a hefty dose of sass.

I love this story. It has so many bits going for it ranging from Sylvia's initial cluelessness over who Sven is to the paparazzi to Hard Head (laughs) to her absolutely adorable whip-wielding neighbor (I've always wanted to say that), and I haven't even touched on their relationship or their interactions.

One of the aspects I really enjoyed is the plausibility that this story could happen to most anyone. It takes the level of fantasy to a reality level that makes it that much more fun. The dialogue and outright sass made me snort in amusement on more than one occasion (more like dozens), which also made the drama that much more endearing along with me hopeful that they will have their happily ever after.

This is partly a story of redemption coupled with the knowledge that everyone and anyone can find love even if it means "almost [breaking] her nose on an inconveniently placed wall of muscle." And well, really, that's the best way.
