My Review: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I loved this book!

This was a well-written and highly entertaining story. A sort of fictional celebrity tell-all full of scandal, secret trysts, and taboo love affairs.

I found that what I liked most about this story was how Evelyn Hugo knew her power, and she knew exactly how to use it and when. What a powerhouse of a woman! I loved how she saw people, circumstances, and things for what they were and adjusted her behavior and reactions accordingly and unapologetic.

The POV switched between a present-day journalist who plays more of a role in the story than we are first led to believe; Evelyn Hugo herself as she relives the sordid and entertaining years of her past; and the media outlets that post various articles throughout particular times of the past. Such a fun addition to see those little snippets!

And after everything – the story, the scandal, the losses and heartbreak (and there’s a lot of it!) – that very last line of the book… could not have been a more perfect end.

So much love for this book! I listened to the audiobook, the entire thing in one day. I had to. I could not let myself stop it. This would make a fantastic Book Club read. Lots of talking points, lots I think people could chat about. And I’m starting to see why people love Taylor Jenkins Reid.
