At just 19, Kendall Bettencourt is Hollywood's hottest young starlet, with the world at her feet - but behind the glamour and designer dresses is a girl who longs for normal. Payton Taylor is Kendall's best friend since childhood and the one person who reminds her of who she really is. With her career taking off, Kendall moves Payton to LA to help keep her sane. But Payton is hiding a secret that could make everything 10 times worse. Because to her, Kendall is more than a best friend; she is the only girl that she has ever loved. Just as they need each other more than ever, they'll have to answer the question of where friendship stops and love begins - and find out whether the feelings they have can survive the mounting pressure of fame.

Nice story, well told

I really enjoyed the kindle version of this book, so was familiar with the story before I bought the audio book. Although I enjoyed the story in this format and found the emotions and sentiment conveyed by the readers to really add an extra dimension to the story, the sound level when one person was reading was too quiet and led to me adjusting volume between readers, which was a little frustrating.

Would still recommend the story and book to others though.

Could be five stars

The novel is about friends from childhood. One an up and coming actress, the other talented student music composer. They are both attracted to each other, but the actress has not yet come to grips with the fact she is lesbian.

The story is very sweet and keeps you on the hook, for wanting their unacquainted love to come to tuition. I liked the characters in this, and they stuck in my head long after I finished reading it. The writing is great.

So why not five stars. The audio-book is narrated by two narrators. Both are okay, but the narrator changes when the point of view changes. This means depending on who the point of view is with the main characters end up their voices changing for their dialogue. And the narrators are very different. This might have worked if one of the narrators stuck to one characters dialogue.But actually it would have been better sticking with just one narrator using different voices, for the characters.

It's not too a big deal but it did distract for me staying in tune with the characters. I'm not sure if this comes across in the sample, but worth checking it. But I would still recommend it, or the book. Because I loved the story.
