What happens to a popular sitcom star after the show is over? Georgie York is trying to make her own real-life love story come true, but being dumped by her husband Lance, and now being fodder for the paparazzi, is not what she had in mind.
When she tries to hide out in her best friend’s Malibu beachhouse, who should appear but the self-absorbed co-star of that now defunct sitcom. Running into Bram Shepard is the last thing she wants, and then stumbling upon him again in Las Vegas when she tries for a getaway a few days later, leads to some unexpected moments.
Like an elopement between the two of them, fueled by drinks someone drugged.
What happens next is sure to keep the reader turning pages, as the two of them try to turn what could have been a disaster into a public relations fix for their image problems.
A riotous and fun-filled romp had me guessing about what would happen next. Would the two of them fall in love for real, or would they sabotage each other for revenge? Will either of them find the self-acceptance to recreate their own lives? A predictable tale with some interesting twists and turns was delightfully surprising at times. Four stars for What I Did for Love: A Novel.
