Acts of Love by Talulah Riley
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
Bernadette knows what she wants.
Tim is perfect, and she's always had a feeling that something is about to happen between them.
He might have just announced his engagement to the sickeningly wonderful Elizabeth, but the ring's not on his finger yet.
And when Elizabeth starts meddling in Bernie's own love life, she knows it's time to act.
Yes, Elizabeth's best friend Radley might be charming, charismatic and intelligent.
But he's not Tim.
And Bernadette's not a woman who takes no for an answer.
I didn't like this one at all. Usual chick lit/modern romance nonsense set in LA with an English heroine, billionaire male character and unrequited love. Way too long with none of the mystique and mastery of Gone with the Wind to which it has been compared. Simple lack lustre plot line, simpering self indulgent characters and a completely uninteresting and boring story line. Nothing like the superb Mitchell novel that it is being compared with. To my mind this novel is just mushy nonsense with no originality or creativity. I couldn't be bothered to read to the end I'm afraid and although I have been harsher with this review it is because you'd have to be brilliant to be compared to the timeless novel that Margaret Mitchell produced and this certainly wasn't even close. Sorry this only gets 1 star from me.
I would like to thank the publisher for sending this in exchange for an honest review.
