A great read! Jun 13, 2004
Take Your Shirt Off is a book that's got it all. It's a great story about a girl who figures out a way to make it in Hollywood plus it's well written and has got the spice that you would expect from a expose of the sleazier-side-of-the-movie industry-type book. This is a great book for anyone who likes reading books about the Hollywood.
Sleeping and Scheming your Way to the Top Mar 17, 2004
This is the typical Hollywood story of the girl gone to Hollywood to become famous. But seven years later she's still a wannabe waitress with no real acting credit when she comes to the realization that she never was really in the game. They just wanted her to "Take off your Shirt".
So what do you do when you tried to sleep yourself to fame and it didn't work? Under that premise the author takes us on a fascinating journey of turning the tables on Hollywood and learning to play the Hollywood game the way it's played by the players, ruthlessly.
I found this book to be an enjoyable tale of a beautiful girl making it to the top on her own terms only to discover there is problems at the top also. Be forewarned, I don't generally read steamy soft porn and this had it in there. Very titillating and well written I might add.
This book should have a broad appeal. Those who like entertainment books, romance novels, mystery novels or just fun beach reads should enjoy this book. If you have very high morals and are easily offended, I'd take a pass. But for others, it's a quick enjoyable book.
A great cynical cautionary tale Dec 28, 2003
This book is one of the best I've read in a long time. In it, there's a great story, a lot of steamy sex and also a cynical cautionary tale about the excesses of Hollywood and what can happen if everything doesn't happen according to plan. In other words, this is a great trashy read, but it's also very well written so it transcends the genre. I mean, we all read stories about people with their big Hollywood dreams, but rarely does anything come along that's remotely realistic. Everyhing is usually just twinkles and stardust or the boulevard of broken dreams. This book lands somewhere in the middle. Where the rest of us live. I recommend this book highly.
