So I remember now why I don t enjoy reading celebrity written novels I mean, don t get me wrong There are actually talented celebrity writers out there, but you can tell this one was written by an amateur because it shows She was fond of telling instead of showing and the characters are nothing but cardboard cutouts possessing the personalities of bland gruel Let s not even talk about the plot If you think Hollywood is far out of realism, this book blows that perception out into outer space.Alex Cleary is a fledgling makeup artist who hasn t made it to Hollywood She knows what she wants to do but just hadn t quite caught a break For now, she s taking small time gigs while helping out in her family s pool business along with her on again, off again boyfriend Who, by the way, seems to be only interested in her for the career her family name can afford him On the other hand, hers wasn t going anywhere, and her life is at a standstill Until she finally snags the opportunity of a lifetime working as Hillary P s even her name sounds pretentious gag makeup artist.Lauded as a Devil Wears Prada wannabe, Opportunity Knocks tells the story about how easily it is for Hollywood to squash your dreams Actor or not, it s a shark infested water and you re a bleeding, flailing bait Alex Cleary finds herself on the cusp of a breakthrough but when she trusted the wrong people, it was all over even before it begins Hillary P is your typical egomaniacal villain bent on showing off her influence and power She s rude, a devil of a diva, and she makes sure everyone knows just how big her head is.The writing is barely passable the only good thing it had going for it was the fact that you ll fly through this book Though, now that I ve thought about it, I think I skimmed a lot of nonsense The characters are what you see what you get no depths, no charms They are just there to play their parts You don t get to know them any deeper than what s there on the pages Overall, I m just happy I gave her work a chance At least I know now to avoid them in the future. A young woman named Alex is working as a makeup artist in California, doing her best to save up money to move out of her parent s house, and suddenly finds that she s getting dumped by her longtime boyfriend Luckily for her, she s on the set of a famous tv personality s show when the resident makeup artist is whisked away to the hospital Alex is on hand, she does some makeup, and boom she s hired and she s asked to move to New York to continue working with said celebrity It seems like these events come at the perfect time Add to this she ends up in the bed of a hunky, hunky movie starwell, nothing could be better Except Alex accidentally blabs to a reporter about her boss s crazy antics and suddenly she s violated her NDA and is about to owe someone 5 million that she will never, ever have Alex, her new beau Billy, and a few others create a plan to get the reporter to squash the story They have 48 hours to get this done Okay, so the plot comes rather quickly, but it is a short book making it the perfect short read However, you do find yourself having a lot of questions Did this movie star really fall this hard for a girl within about five minutes of knowing her How many people are willing to put their careers on the line to help this makeup artist Alex keeps saying how independent she is but is there ever a moment where you feel like she actually is For me, the depth wasn t there It makes for a fun, quick read, but it is something that once you read it you re not going to go tell your best friend about You re not in love with any of the characters The story just falls a little flat and is a little too perfect with its tidy ending and of course, show versus tell is an issue throughout So it is something you can get through quickly but isn t going to stay in your soul PS This is written, I m told, by a celebrity had no idea Still not entirely sure who Alison Sweeney is because I never watched The Biggest Loser but again, I m told she s kinda famous For what it is worth.

When opportunity knocks, you d better answer Alex is entering into the makeup business in LA Trying to beindependent and not rely on her family, she is quickly and unexpectedly offered a job opportunity with a high profile celebrity, though the job is in New York Alex moves her life across the country to follow her dream There, she is quickly consumed by the fast paced work Making a mistake that she didn t realize she was making, she has now violated a non disclosure agreement and has to find a way to resolve it or she will have to pay 5 million dollars that she does not have. A VERY quick read, maybe took me about 3 hours total to get through Full of twists that you would not expect, this book is my favorite of her three and very hard to put down Alex is a makeup artist feeling stuck not only in her job in LA but in her relationship with Sean Emma, her friend from New York, works for a talk show host When the show comes to LA, she invites Alex to join Alex comes, ends up doing the host s makeup and meets Billy Fox a recurring character from all three or Sweeney s books She is invited to join the team full time and moves to New York single and ready to work.Throughout her time in New York, Alex makes mistakes, falls in and out of love and looks at friendship in a new way This book shows what many twenty thirty year olds go through in order to discover your true self A great story with an even stronger message. This book was just ok length wise it wasn t very long, but story wise, I felt like it went on forever I was hooked after the first chapter, and it lost me by about the 5th Boring, kind of predictable or maybe I just stopped caring what was going to happen An insight into the celebrity world, but nothing new. This is my first book about a makeup artist and I can honestly say Alison Sweeney made me want to learn how to do makeup for other women She had a way of making everything in this book sound like something magical and fun to do I look forward to reading her other books. A fictionalized behind the scenes look at the Hollywood scene Filled with characters you ll root for and character s you want to slap, this romp through the Alex s life as a freelance make up artist is great fun
