Summary

Would you trade fame for love?

Saffron Oliver is the golden girl. Golden hair. Golden skin. Golden movie career. Only one problem: She hates it. 

She flees to her sister’s seaside town - where she meets the confident and charming Kirsty McBride. Kirsty is everything Saffron wants to be. Perhaps also, everything she wants. But Saffron can’t have it all. So now, she has to decide: Does she crave Kirsty enough to blow up her golden life?

Best-selling lesbian romance authors Clare Lydon and TB Markinson have crafted a sizzling lesbian love story about not being afraid and going after what you really want.

Three and a half stars

Okay I know the genre is rom com yet it was so implausible (who cares that much about celebrities?!) and the highs and lows of emotional roller coaster was exhausting. Best part was the setting and the more level headed (less melodramatic) characters such as the recently divorced sister of the 'lesbian icon' and the business partner of older romantic lead. Didn't like the emphasis of physical perfection of beauty. But yes it was merely a rom com. Just not a favorite example of one.

Pretty good, not amazing

I’m glad I listened. The story was mildly enjoyable but didn’t feel as fleshed out as it could have been. The narrator did a decent job. I could tell who was talking with the voice changes and the voice was pleasant. I don’t think I’ll listen to it a second time.

Perfection

This magical work of art transports you to an almost perfect seaside town where lessons are learned about trust, loyalty, disappointment and that a “forever person” can be found in a “forever place” where the walls of age and fame can come tumbling down.
My thanks to Claire Storey for her wonderful job of narrating and sharing her indescribably delicious British accent.

Loved it

I loved listening to this story. Two great authors turned out a great story. I felt like I was at the seaside, at the wine shop, hanging with the characters, etc. Narration was good. Worth the credit!

But not my cup of tea. I liked the age difference, but the story itself had no umffff if you know what I mean....narration was a little blaaaaa
