    Romance, cleanThis was a lovely read. Silvia's journey into editing films and production is rough and hard as she navigates being an assistant to a director who isn't engaged in his film. Her relationship with Ben, as a friend at a rival studio (her former place of employment, and former co-worker) is tricky, and seems to be met with road blocks in myriad forms. Silvia's family, her friends, her job, and of course, Ben meld together to make a lov...

    I am not generally a romance reader, since I prefer a good rom-com to an over-the-top bodice-ripper. But I gave this book a chance after receiving a copy at BookCon, and tore through in a weekend with pleasure.The gimmick to this rom-com is the protagonist’s connection to Audrey Hepburn; but the more interesting thing about it is that it takes place in the industry of Hollywood – not the glitz and glamour of acting, but in film editing. Silvi...

    Working in Hollywood is not easy. Silvia discovers this as she starts a new job with a difficult boss and as one of the few women working in the office. As an up and coming film editor Silvia is part of a dog-eat-dog world where people are always looking for a leg up. One of Silvia's biggest inspirations is Audrey Hepburn, at the start of every chapter there are quotes from movies that Audrey Hepburn starred in.This is a follow-up to Julie Wright...

    Hollywood isn't all it's made out to be and Silvia learns that the hard way. I love old movies and the glitz and glamor of a famous lifestyle, but a lot of it is simply a facade. Basing this one on Audrey Hepburn was pure genius, especially the "object" with her namesake.Silvia is a film editor and she's good at what she does, but has had to fight to get to where she is. I love that she's strong and not a person to back down when treated unfairly...

    Sooo, I really really loved Lies Jane Austen Told Me...it’s one of my favorite books and I was so excited to get to read this book early. However, I just couldn’t seem to get into this story. I think some people will love it, especially, old Hollywood/movie fans, but for me it was a struggle. Sylvia is an assistant film editor and you get to see her world of working in Hollywood and how it’s really not that glamorous. I felt like the beginn...

    **Thanks to NetGalley and Shadow Mountain for the eARC of this book.**I’ve made it no small secret that I have a hard time with contemporary romance. I can’t explain why, it just hit and miss for me. More miss than hit. I’m much more critical of the genre, maybe because I’m critical of modern people in general (it’s take me days to explain that - it’s probably not for the reasons you’re thinking of).So when I give a novel with a con...

    Told all in first person account, this book takes you into the world of behind the scenes movie editing. The main character Silvia, has perhaps defied the odds and is exactly where she wants to be. With a well known studio and a picture company behind her, everything seems to be working out just great. Except she is an 'assistant' editor which means she is at the mercy of the chief editor, who, hasn't done a single thing on the project so far. Ti...

    I initially requested this book due to the cover and title along with reading a few lines of the description and boy am I glad I did. I really enjoyed the characters in this book and often found myself rooting for Silvia when it came to her life at work and her love life. The supporting characters did not disappoint either. I loved Silvia’s sassy grandma and the banter between her and Ben. Anyone with an interest in movies will appreciate the ...

    I so loved this book way more than the first in the series! Silvia is such an enjoyable character and Ben is the perfect swoon-worthy, but also just normal guy that any girl would be lucky to have! I loved the details this story provided for what a film editor career is like and also the fears and anxieties that come from cancer. Overall, this was an amazing book that I thoroughly enjoyed!Thank you Shadow Mountain Publishing and NetGalley for thi...

    This book was fun in a lot of ways.  Silvia, a cancer survivor is both a courageous spunky woman and a woman that  is afraid of what she can't see. Both literally and figuratively.  Will she take the risk and tell  Ben she loves him?Ben is the perfect book boyfriend. He is loyal and willing to give up his dream for Silvia. Will she figure it out before she loses him?Rounding out the cast is Grandma, Emma, and Walt.Highly recommended.I receive...

    I am a pretty fast reader. It is just something I naturally do. If I start a book, I don’t go to sleep until it is finished. I have to know how it ends. With this book it was different.I enjoyed this book so much I was deliberately trying to draw it out because I didn’t want it to end. I loved all the movie quotes and references. The characters were awesome. I loved the story. This is definitely one I will be reading over and over again.

    This book is purely delightful! I loved the quotes at the beginning of each chapter from Audrey Hepburn’s movies. I love the movie quotes game that Silvia and Ben play. My family also plays that game often. I love Silvia’s dedication, spunk and quirkiness. I love Ben’s steadiness, dependability and his odd statistical quotes. The story is so well written and the characters are wonderful.

    Silvia has a strong personality, her mother, and grandmother, taught her to always stick up for herself. Working in an industry that is predominately male, she learns to work hard and do her best, even if that means getting your drunk boss,to be where he needs to be. I loved Sylvia's grandmother, she has sass. Sylvia learns that life isn't always easy and friends mean everything.

    Original review can be found at: http://www.nerdprobs.com/books/book-r...If I am honest, I only took this book because it was free. We all love free things right? It wasn’t until my friend pointed out that it was by the same author who wrote Lies Jane Austin Told Me, a book I recently read, reviewed and loved, that I became even more excited to read it.Silvia has always loved Audrey Hepburn. So much so that when she lost her eye to cancer at th...

    I’m still kind of processing this book, it wasn’t bad but it wasn’t at all what I was expecting. From the description, I thought it would be a semi-lighthearted romance. That’s not what I found. It was pretty heavy.

    I enjoyed this sweet contemporary romance set in the film editing world. The Audrey Hepburn theme was great. Many thanks to NetGalley, the author and the publisher for my ARC. All opinions are my own.
