Publisher's Summary

At just 19, Kendall Bettencourt is Hollywood's hottest young starlet, with the world at her feet - but behind the glamour and designer dresses is a girl who longs for normal. Payton Taylor is Kendall's best friend since childhood and the one person who reminds her of who she really is. With her career taking off, Kendall moves Payton to LA to help keep her sane. But Payton is hiding a secret that could make everything 10 times worse. Because to her, Kendall is more than a best friend; she is the only girl that she has ever loved. Just as they need each other more than ever, they'll have to answer the question of where friendship stops and love begins - and find out whether the feelings they have can survive the mounting pressure of fame.

    "Love the story"

    I love the story, I think it is sweet and entertaining. I would give 5 star if I don't have trouble listening to the one of the voice. I guess it's the matter of preference, I love Kendall narrated voice but I couldn't immerse my self to the story when listening to Payton narrated voice, telling the story. Felt like the narrator of Payton voice, having difficulty to express the characters. In overall it's great to have this book make it to voice narration by some professionals. It's still beat to some of other book that I've listen narrated by bots. Good job ladies.

    "Good story...narrators detract"

    This is a good story, not incredibly deep, but entertaining. I enjoyed it, but wasn't completely drawn in, possibly because Hollywood glitz isn't my thing or maybe because the characters are so young. But I've read other books where the characters young and really liked them. The real distraction to the story, however, were the narrators. One sounded incredibly young (her teen-aged tendency to pronounce Peyton as Pay-un was irritating) and the other sounded way too mature, like she could be the other girl's mother. As the book is written in first person, switching back and forth between the characters, the narrators changed. It felt like a 13-year-old reading, then her mom reading. It really killed the chemistry between the characters.

    Story
    "Good Chapters in Search of a Book"

    It feels strange to say it but the first six hours of this story which passed at the pace of LA traffic was actually the high point. This, even though it included such highly questionable occurrences as Hollywood virgins. Then there were the all the cliches about the pseudo glitz and glamour of Hollywood, LA, the movie business, the paparazzi, agents, publicists and the partridge in the pear tree. Peyton's yearning for the girl she knows that she can't have is so close to my own experience that I had no problem trouble relating to her helplessness and despair.
    No the really low point is Kendall; one of the two major characters in the book turns out to be a total chicken**** unworthy of the love continually offered to her by her childhood friend Peyton. It doesn't appear to be too realistic that anyone with as much going for them as Peyton would settle for the crumbs offered to her by Kendall for as long as she did. Love must be buttressed by respect to be real and it's hard to understand how Peyton would be able to respect her.
    There is also the issue of the narrators; particularly the one doing the voice for Peyton. Both of them too often sound as if they're reading to a classroom full of third graders. However if you're a sucker for lesbian love stories you'll probably be able to find the high points in this one.

    "Please make this into a movie! "

    I love this book. This would be a great movie. Or selection of lesbian movies currently suck, especially the way they end. This had some pretty emotional chapters but the ending was terrific

    The story was good but I did not care for the narration. I am delighted to have read this book by Ms. Zimmer .

    "Weird Narration...."

    The story is interesting and well written. However the alternating narrators make the listening experience... kind of unpleasant. The narrator for Payton is fine, though she has a lazy lisp that comes out in later chapters. But she fits the voice of the character. The Kendall narrator is awful. Firstly, she sounds like a solid 35 not 19, and secondly her performance is like a vaguely European Siri... it was very unenjoyable.

    "great book"

    I have always lived by the motto, life is to sorry to read the same book twice. since I have first said that, I have found a few that are exceptions and thus is one of them. when I saw it was available in audiobook I jumped on it.

    "Nice story, well told"

    I really enjoyed the kindle version of this book, so was familiar with the story before I bought the audio book. Although I enjoyed the story in this format and found the emotions and sentiment conveyed by the readers to really add an extra dimension to the story, the sound level when one person was reading was too quiet and led to me adjusting volume between readers, which was a little frustrating.

    Would still recommend the story and book to others though.

    Story
    "Could be five stars"

    The novel is about friends from childhood. One an up and coming actress, the other talented student music composer. They are both attracted to each other, but the actress has not yet come to grips with the fact she is lesbian.

    The story is very sweet and keeps you on the hook, for wanting their unacquainted love to come to tuition. I liked the characters in this, and they stuck in my head long after I finished reading it. The writing is great.

    So why not five stars. The audio-book is narrated by two narrators. Both are okay, but the narrator changes when the point of view changes. This means depending on who the point of view is with the main characters end up their voices changing for their dialogue. And the narrators are very different. This might have worked if one of the narrators stuck to one characters dialogue.But actually it would have been better sticking with just one narrator using different voices, for the characters.

    It's not too a big deal but it did distract for me staying in tune with the characters. I'm not sure if this comes across in the sample, but worth checking it. But I would still recommend it, or the book. Because I loved the story.

    "Best book to come along in ages~highly recommend "

    I've already relistened 3 times and will in time listen again..Slightly youth based but that doesn't mean any age can't enjoy it, it's dual charactered which helps with the humour, because you are hearing both sides of the thought process, and it's dual narrated quite lively...it's a light humorous book as opposed to a marathon. Sadly it ends rather abruptly so you don't know the outcome, leaving it open for a follow up, which I for one would buy immediately..
