“You’re not bad at this sex thing…Although, you know, regular rehearsals. Important for any performance.”

index

 

Yet another recommendation from Smart Bitches Trashy Books, here is a romance novel for grownups. London stage actor Richard has an attitude problem and the producers of his current play decide a fake romance with second lead Lainie is just the thing to rehabilitate his public persona. She despises him and he is barely aware of her existence and both of their expectations are confounded when they fall in love. Funny

He’d occasionally wondered if he’d missed something, being an only child. Grievous bodily harm, by the looks of it.

great dialogue

“You’re not bad at this sex thing…Although, you know, regular rehearsals. Important for any performance.”

and some nice detail on the craft of acting

Sadie and Will fielded that one, jumping in with a pack of PR-friendly lies that made the theatres sound like something out of an Enid Blyton book. All jolly midnight feasts and togetherness. As opposed to a hard, professional grind and a social atmosphere that could be like navigating a snake pit. If one of them came out with a smarmy “There’s no ‘I’ in team,” she was pulling a Richard and walking out.

Recommended.
