Book Review: Lovestruck, Julia Llewellyn

Lovestruck opening line: They lay on Jake’s bed, breathing heavily, bodies intertwined and sweaty under the rumpled sheets.

Rosie and Jake are happy, in love and struggling financially. Introduced to one another by Rosie’s best friend who happens to be actor Jake’s agent, they have a whirlwind romance which is quickly followed by a wedding and children. Jake is an out of work actor and they live together in a small flat, without a spare penny for anything, until Jake makes it to the ‘big leagues’. He becomes a well recognized celebrity and he gives Rosie what he thinks she has always wanted, a big house, private schooling for the children, and she can be a stay at home mum. But, Rosie realizes that with all this wealth and freedom, she doesn’t really know her husband. And this new Jake is not someone she really wants to be with. Can her marriage survive fame and fortune?

The book swings from the past to the present quite seamlessly and there was only one story within the story that took me a while to follow. With that said, it was an easy, light hearted read that I can recommend.
