BLOG TOUR: Fast Glamour (Glamour #3) – Maggie Marr + Review

Released: July 23rd, 2014

A broken heart forever bears scars. . . 

Sterling Legend grew up a prince in the City of Angels. His life was perfect and he wanted for nothing until his entire world shattered. He lost everything dear to him the year he turned seventeen. Now he’s grown into a formidable man on the cusp of outrageous success. His life revolves around his work and all the beautiful baubles that Los Angeles can offer to a wealthy young man. He’s buried his feelings and his heart so that he will never be hurt again.

A lost love that she could never forget . . .

Rhiannon Bliss was forced to leave L.A. to extinguish the fire of a first love, but an ocean, a different country, and seven years couldn’t quell her desires. Now she’s returned to the City of Angels to care for her mother. Can she fight her feelings for the man that once broke her heart? Does she even want to?

Finding your way back to love can be an impossible path. . . 

Sterling Legend is at the top of the entertainment industry. His fast rise to success due to his talent and to his last name. But Sterling wants to find success on his own. He is on the path to producing his first film, without his famous father as the star, when the ex-love of his life re-enters his world. Rhiannon Bliss left seven years before without a word. Sterling has no need to forgive, but his desire for Rhiannon is overwhelming. Can two broken hearts use the heat of their attraction to find their way back to love?

"How can we build something beautiful if we constantly have to deal with the ugliness of the past?"

Although I must admit that it wasn't as good as Amanda and Ryan's story, Rhiannon and Sterling made me laugh and frustrated and it just gave me all the chills. Their story was so complex with ghosts from their pasts and their family wars. It was amazing to watch them walk through that shitstorm to finally end up together in the end.

The characters were awesome but nothing really unique.

I adored Sterling Legend. He's a man who goes after what he wants, even crossing the stubborn, hard-headed, temperamental, need-to-be-number-one-all-the-time Steve Legend. So when his mother left a script for him and Amanda that seemed to be a "curse", Sterling wanted to oblige his mother's final wish.

Even if it meant that he had to work around and without his father - who loathed the script and would do anything to put it to a stop - to collect funding, actors, director, etc. But I liked that. I liked how he strayed away from the Legend name to make a low-budget indie film that could win Oscars. LOVED. HIM.

Rhiannon was awesome too. I mean, she's a freaking artist. God, I love her. She's also stubborn at times and she can be afraid. But she's always so sweet and mellow.

But their romance was so hard for the both of them. Sterling's name brought a lot of bad signs into the relationship for Rhiannon's parents. Knowing the Legends for so long, they knew what the Legends were capable of and was far from trusting of Sterling.
"Rhiannon, please remember, that to be a Legend can be the most horrible of blessings."
However, I felt some of their small fights were unnecessary and it could've just led up to a bigger, climatic one. Some of the lines were too cheesy. I really don't understand Rhiannon's father, like fuck off man. Maybe the author intended for us to really loathe him but I feel like I wanna throw him into the pits of hell just because he suddenly acts like a father when he wants to defend his honor. Prick.

Otherwise, great book!
