"Interesting character study"
New Orleans socialite Jonni Landry DeVries wonders why she
did it. It was obviously a moment of lunacy that made her
open her mansion to a Hollywood film crew. Jonni has spent
the past year in mourning, but not for her deceased
philandering spouse. Instead she grieves what he did to
her once vibrant personality so that Jonni has not recently
helped in the care of their five-year-old child, let alone
nurturing her daughter.
The tabloids love following Cameron Scott, the star of the
children's film being made on location in Jonni's home.
Known for his womanizing ways, Cameron and Jonni are
attracted to one another. However, she refuses to get
involved with another bad boy while all he wants is the
role of a lifetime starring with her.
Though quite engaging at times due mostly to the hero,
readers will be hard pressed to find any empathy towards
the lead female protagonist. Not only is Jonni wallowing,
but also ignoring her child leaves her open to animosity as
a worthless rich bi*ch. Still, Scott is a delightful
character and somewhat carries the tale with some help by
the daughter of his beloved. He is a hunk who somehow
manages to break through Jonni's barrier of self-pity.
