Lizzie Medina went to London to reinvent herself. Tired of being the quiet baby sister, and in no hurry to settle into a boring existence in surburbia, she escapes from home at the first opportunity. When she settles in London for a year of post-graduate studies, Lizzie is sure she’ll be able to start a whole new life. Immerse herself in the books she loves. Explore a new country. Work on her dream of writing a novel. She might even be able to find a little bit of excitement for once.
But falling unexpectedly in love with up-and-coming actor Thomas Harper causes Lizzie to re-think… everything. Just as she’s convinced herself this small-town girl from the Midwest can handle this great adventure, Thomas’s career suddenly explodes to superstar levels, and Lizzie finds herself forced to navigate the fame game of red carpets, catty co-stars, gossip magazines, and paparazzi. When she wished for a new life, she had no idea it would be anything like this!
Lizzie must now determine if her love—and her confidence—are strong enough to get her through the complications of dating a movie star. Even if she and Thomas are able to pull through before she has to leave London, how will she deal with the inevitability of returning to a life at home that no longer feels like her own? Will she follow her family’s wishes or follow her heart? Will the Lizzie she discovered in London be strong enough to help her pursue her dreams?

The book is written well. My low rating isn't for typographical or grammatical errors. This book is technically very good. That being said, I could not find myself to finish it. This book is every thirteen year old girls dream come true. Lizzie's character should not have been a day older than sixteen. However, she was written with a 12 year old mindset in a graduate student body. I am on the verge of a diabetic coma from how overwhelmingly sweet this story is.
Lovestruck in London
Enjoyed the story until I ran into the f____ word. Don't know why authors feel they have to ruin books with bad language.
Here's the thing... I like it, please don't misunderstand me there; it's captivating, enjoyable, the romance is cute but there's not substance. There's nothing to it, it's the stereotypical love story made simple by filling pages with mindless cliche's and pages and pages of description that don't really move the story along. I want detail about how the character's feel when they kiss or when they touch. I want to know what they're wearing, how they look in it. Description about Important things, things that keep the story going.
