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, firstSummer Hayes is devastated when her co star shuns her for accidentally sparking rumors 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,

masks, and trying to stick to the script, words Whelp, I m officially upset that I m done reading this book For me, give me a great ice queen character or a fauxmance as a theme, and I m immediately

this book For me, give me a great ice queen character or a fauxmance as a theme, and I m immediately interested in the book With Breaking Character, readers don t just get one, but we get BOTH themes in the same novel, topped off with the fact that Winter is a top tier author I was shamelessly 100% invested the moment I saw the blurb, and this book completely lived up to my expectations.I absolutely adored both of the MCs, and completely believed them as a couple The side characters were wonderful too I really loved that MC Elizabeth the A list British Bitch actress was portrayed as an ice queen to the world, but somehow even from the beginning, she let MC Summer see glimpses of the person underneath the facade I could feel myself loving Elizabeth s characterandas the chapters went on.And MC Summer, the happy go lucky, wide eyed, always smiling former child actress, how could anyone not like her She really jumped off the page as one of those people who s a true delight of a person to be around It was refreshing to see Summer wear her feelings on her sleeve, but the thing I loved the most is that Winter wrote Summer s character as intelligent, witty, and entirely capable of standing up for herself as an actress Summer didn t need anything from Elizabeth, she just wanted her The chemistry between the two truly was sizzling once it got going, and I m very sorry to have to put their story down now that it s over And as I said before, the side characters were delightful also Grace s character was incredibly complex, nuanced and brilliantly written, but all of the other side characters were just as good.Personally, I think what I love the most about the fauxmance sub genre is the way that the author is forced to truly develop the characters There s never insta love, and the fauxmance forces the characters to actually take time and fall for each other over the course of the novel This one even had a wonderful change of pace as well, with Summer eventually view spoiler telling Elizabeth about the attraction that she really felt for her, before Elizabeth could even admit it to herself hide spoiler.If you can t tell, I loved this one, and I m sorry that it s over now I will be re reading this at some point Solid 4.5 stars, rounded up to 5 Many thanks to the publisher for providing me with an ARC copy in exchange for my honest review I ve never been

fans will really enjoy this read with one caveat.When it comes to lesfic, a lot of fan favorites are age gaps, ice queens, Hollywood, fake relationships, good communication, and slow burn romances Winter provides all of these but with a spin For just a few examples, an age gap of nine years is made greater by Summer being a former child star and looking another five years younger than her actual age Also, the public persona of Elizabeth is that she s an ice queen but she s actually not at all and merely an introvert Summer figures this out within the first few pages and Elizabeth is never actually an ice queen to anyone I was very glad that the author didn t choose to make her pretend to be cold just to drag out the drama And usually Hollywood f f romances involve coming out to the public and the in the closet aspect is a conflict between the romantic leads used to heighten drama Not here.I found Lee Winter s story choices refreshing Just when I thought we d hit a tired story line, she took us in a new direction.In another unique spin, we even get a sex scene that s not a sex scene that is a sex scene That takes some finesse.The caveat is that, as much as Summer and Elizabeth are likable and there s some great flirting going on between them, they are not in the same place when it comes to mutual attraction It takes until nearly the end of the book to get there Because of that, the sizzle we could ve felt from the get go is doused However, despite the lower heat, what the reader gets is a romance built on true friendship and respect and Winter rewards us with a final intimacy scene and solid epilogue.Overall, well done and I enjoyed Recommend 4.3 5 stars.Absolutely wonderful read in every sense Amazing characters, lovely story, great supporting cast All of that delivered through engaging and expertly written prose This book is definitely in my top 5 of near 300 books I ve read this year Do yourself a service and get the book right now Lesfic romance does not get any better than this. Perfection A fabulous 5 star read Nobody writes an ice queen like Lee Winter She truly is the queen of the ice queen She builds up their walls, fortifies their heart and brings in the perfect lady to thaw all that ice I live for her writing Over the past few months I have hit a major wall with reading, nothing really piqued my interest and the books you thought would be knockouts were just meh

is stellar Elizabeth Thornton is dubbed as the British Bitch As the lead interest on a medical television show, you would think Elizabeth relishes her stardom and career s rise to A list level In truth, she hates the television show she stars in The stories are mundane and overly dramatic with plot twists that are too ridiculous to describe Her fame has made her withdraw into herself, putting on a mask not even her closest friends can penetrate Summer Hayes is the newest cast member on Elizabeth s TV drama As a childhood actress Summer has grown up in Hollywood, she knows how the business works As cutthroat as the entertainment industry is, Summer has the heart of gold She s sweet, kind, perpetually happy and has a strong moral fiber She believes in doing the right thing and damned the consequences She is adorable Summer has had a long time crush on Miss Thornton Seeing Elizabeth perform Shakespeare years ago in London captivated her and Summer has held Thornton in the highest regard since, with a mega crush as well.This book takes its time Winter builds fabulous characters, our two mains are truly delightful The story builds and has so many layers You really get the full effect of the chemistry between the leading ladies Just enough angst to pull on those heart strings and keep you turning the page This is a book you will come back to and read again I loved it in case you couldn t tell Winter s writing really just works for me I get completely involved with the characters and totally drawn in to the story She s taken a fairly common trope and made itcomplex and different The difference is not only the story line but also in the array of characters who all seem to take on a life of their own Even the characters being played by the characters are tangible The connection between her main characters is built and sustained even when it becomes almost too painful to conti Winter s writing really just works for me I get completely involved with the characters and totally drawn in to the story She s taken a fairly common trope and made itcomplex and different The difference is not only the story line but also in the array of characters who all seem to take on a life of their own Even the characters being played by the characters are tangible The connection between her main characters is built and sustained even when it becomes almost too painful to continue I feel like I ve been dragged through the bush backwards at the end of most of her books but at the conclusion of this one, the feeling is amplified.Summer Hayes didn t make her first impression on Elizabeth Thornton a good one Dousing the star in fake blood and ruining the scene might not have been the best way to start her new role as a second year resident on the popular medical drama Choosing Hope Summer is as her name suggests she s sunny, light and irrepressibly positive Elizabeth, too, is as her name suggests she prickly and untouchable with numerous unflattering monikers on set and in the gossip media A misconstrued photo generates rumours of them being romantically linked which all but destroys their tentative friendship Then an offer of a role in an arts film comes in for Elizabeth but the director wants to meet her girlfriend too.For all that there are fairly common themes like the fake relationship, the ice queen, closeted celebrities and fan fiction dictating the direction of a TV drama, the story still kept me guessing Even when the direction was obvious, that s not always where it went or in the manner I expected The characters were in a league of their own Elizabeth and Summer are complex characters whose layers unfurl and shift throughout There is a large cast of secondary characters who lack nothing in their presence Grace is an awful human being but a truly fantastic character Chloe is a riot and I wish she had hadon page time Summer s parents are eccentric but entertaining From Elizabeth s assistant to the French director s partner, the characters are memorable and it s not often that I can say I remember all of them but with this novel, they made an impact.All in all, this story has great writing, superb characters, excellent dialogue, riveting pace and a beautiful love story Also, it was really nice to read a story with some tea snobbery instead of the usual coffee, coffee, coffee Book received from Ylva Publishing for an honest review. Why did I not read this sooner I m such a sucker for fauxmances and Lee Winter did a great job writing this really slow burn I always know I m in love with a book when I keep glancing at the number of

very happy to see that she had an honest to goodness backbone and could stand her ground Even the secondary characters were really fleshed out and made this book a real page turner I wasn t expecting to find anything humorous in the book but there were several moments when I had to chuckle Especially when fun was made of Summer s ability to trip on her own shadow Or when I came across lines like To avoid replying, Summer shovedmuffin in her mouth I totally get it though, I too love a good muffin I really wished this book had a fewchapters since it took so long for Elizabeth and Summer to become a couple It s the only downside to the book Well that and I wish someone had stuffed Grace into a canon and shot her crabby ass into outer space Definitely don t miss this book if you like

creativity For any reader who loves a good story or combine with a peek at some of the incredible experiences from a behind the scenes perspective and storyline tidbits that give a look into the filmmaking process, BREAKING CHARACTER has lots of it From the fairy tale way that both leads Elizabeth Summer got their parts to the improbable scope of some soapbox project and the gradual way that both were taken with each other It s rare that an actress embodies even one memorable character over the arc of a career both Elizabeth Summer have managed to create two in this refreshingly written story And what also made their relationship flourished was their unusual background and upbringing which was also relatively different in a lot of ways as readers will find out while the story progress One central theme in this story is the bond that was forged among all the supporting cast,close friends,family and the main characters involved There are so many factors that had to be just right for Ms.Winter to make all the adaptation with the writing and plotline to go smoothly so that it can truly bring every word and sentence to life The descriptions of a few secondary characters in this book left little room for interpretation for instance,Grace who was described as..the most famous woman in England etc This story may delight or thwart,depending on the readers because one ormight surmise from either the title or storytelling that Ms.Winters approach to the subject pertaining to the film business and relationships occurring on set is as much about memoir as it is criticism From chapter to chapter she tries to present some relative coherent details on whatever film both leads were exploring at that time Loose writing created the cumulative effect that she was providing for some very tangible insight,dialogue and nice interaction Lastly,this author does an excellent job of pointing readers to some of the ways that films or soaps even those with terrible outcomes can reveal striking portraits of Lovers,good friendships and of hope Recommended read to everyone 4.5 What is it about Lee Winter s books that makes it so difficult for me to write

series In addition to providing her with her first potentially big part as an adult, Choosing Hope gives her a chance to act beside her idol, British actress Elizabeth Thornton Bess to her friends , who plays the part of the show s villain.Summer is absolutely adorable but not annoyingly so and that makes her irresistible, not only to Bess but to anyone who gets to meet her Bess iscomplicated to like but I can t blame her She s a complete introvert who feels the need to protect herself from others The few times when she s allowed anyone in, she s been hurt, be it by her mentor, Grace, or the audience, who loves to hate the character she plays and is not interested in the real person She has come to hate her job and can t wait for the time when she s released from her contract As a result, for the longest time, she s oblivious to Summer s sweetness While that might sound like a story you ve read before, it is not The characters are so well written, it all feels brand new.The first tears filled my eyes right when I reached the end of the first quarter of the story Way too early Not fair, Lee Winter At some point, I understood Elizabeth s ache so well that I knew in advance what she was going to say Not because the author lacks imagination but because she made the situation so real.Lee Winter is great at writing ice queens but what I loved best about this book is that Bess is not really an ice queen That s what others make her out to be because it s easier andfun to believe what everyone is saying than to look for the truth What she really is is an unassuming woman who is not convinced she s talented enough she is to justify her success, such as it is That s also what makes Summer the perfect partner for her, because she never for one second forgets how impressive and gifted Bess is, nor how human she also is If she treats her in a different way than anyone else, it s not because she s famous or wealthy, it s because she loves her And that s something you can feel in every interaction between them, in their banter as well as their serious talks.The problem with books like these, which make me feel so much, is what am I supposed to read next It feels a bit unfair to the book that follows and its author , because how could they bear comparison And if they did, how would my heart survive I received a copy from the publisher and I am voluntarily leaving a review.
