Publisher's Summary

Life has become a farcical mess for icy British A-lister Elizabeth Thornton. America's most-hated villain stars in a top-rated TV medical drama that she hates. Now, she's been romantically linked to her perky, new co-star, Summer, due to the young woman's clumsiness. As a closeted actress, that's the last thing Elizabeth needs. If she could just get her dream movie role, life would be so much better. The only problem is that the eccentric French film-maker offering it insists on meeting her "girlfriend", Summer, first. 

Summer Hayes is devastated when her co-star shuns her for accidentally sparking rumors that they're lovers. Now the so-called British Bitch has the audacity to ask Summer to pretend to be her girlfriend to get her a role? Elizabeth doesn't even like Summer! Oh, how she'd love to tell her no. And Summer definitely would if it wasn't for the fact she's maybe a tiny bit in love with the impossible woman. 

Contains mature themes.

OH. MY. GOD

what a book.

I was just casually skimming through something light and easy to listen to and did not expect this book to be as great as it is. it was captivating from the very beginning, not to mention the performance from Angela Dawe is one of the best I've heard in a long, long time. she captures the characters so perfectly that I never wanted it to end. and when it finally did I listened to it again.

this book is highly recommended for anyone who wants humour, angst, lovable characters, great story telling and simply a memorable love story.

wow. is all I have to say. and a sequel would be good too! not to mention if this book ever got turned into a movie I think my heart would explode from happiness!

Ice Queen Heaven

I loved this book so much when I first read it. Now, on audio, it's even better. Lee Winter has a way with ice queens. And melting them. If I only had 50 books that I was forced to read & re-read for the rest of my life...this would be one of them. Oh, and Angela Dawe's narration is wonderful.

Winter and Dawe: double trouble!

I regularly find myself in trouble after finishing a Lee Winter book, as no other book on my to-read list seems capable of holding my attention.
This edition of Breaking Character pairs Winter's exquisite writing with a masterful performance by Angela Dawe, and the result is... double trouble!
How am I supposed to listen to another audiobook after *this*? 😭

This audiobook raises the quality bar for the genre, and I would highly recommend it.

This book is now in my top 5.

I wasn't expecting to like this book much. I don't mind the ice queen storyline, but I've never been into the Hollywood scene in lesfic. There was one review that convinced me to give it a shot. The narration and expert accents (to this plain American) totally drew me in. The storyline kept me listening from start to finish with no breaks. I loved the humor, the plot progression and the love between the two. This will definitely be a repeat listen for me!

Entertaining Book!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Angela Dawe is an excellent narrator, whose different voices, accents, and intonations bring the entire cast of characters to life. Summer, a former child star is trying to cross the bridge into adult roles. She is a cast member of Choosing Hope, a hit medical drama starring renown actress Elizabeth, who has become disillusioned with her role as hated villain in the show. A phot of Elizabeth grabbing Summer to prevent her from a fall leads Hollywood types to speculate on their “romance,” which leads to movie roles, a fake relationship for the movie, a friendship, and finally something much more. It is a charming story!

I found it difficult to push pause on this one! The classic show-mance was everything I had hoped it would be and more! Excellent narration Angela Dawe is so easy to listen to. I will be revisiting this one in the future!

Angela Dawe is amazing

The story line is good and it was very sexy but it was Angela Dawe who drove this story. she has been a long time favorite and this book with its many characters and dialects proves her awesome talent. great story, great narrator equals a home run

Fabulous

Wonderful book. Great storyline with fully rounders, believable characters.

I loved the ‘slow burn’ of the developing romance and the added bonus of fake girlfriend.

The sex scenes were great.

Angela Dawe deserves special mention. The narration of a book an make or break it. Angela Dawe makes this book. Her narration is wonderful - eg - different and distinctive voices for the characters. Her English accent wasn’t half bad! Her voice has a lovely cadence and timbre to it.

My first Lee Winter experience

I bought this with a bit of trepidation, since most lesbian fiction tends to fall on the cringe side. However after reading some reviews I decided to give it a go and I am so glad I did. The characters are so full and addictive, the development of the relationship between Elizabeth and Summer is absolutely superb. I finished this within days and I am off to indulge myself in the works of Lee Winter.

Couldn't stop

Great storyline and the anticipation of what would happen next meant it was hard to stop listening. Occasional ropey English accent but the deeper voice for Elisabeth was mesmerising!!

Superb

The characterisations are beautifully written but the narration lifts this to the top of my favourite list - I've already listened twice and will queue it up at least once a month when I need a boost of soppiness and romance :) I love Summer and her family but Elizabeth made me weak at the knees and I'm British! My fervent hope is that there is a sequel and I'll get another 11 hours to delight in these characters and THAT accent :)
