This book hits two storylines I love, Hollywood and a fauxmance. Some people also claimed the storyline of an ice queen in the character of Bess, but I have to ...more

I've never been disappointed by a Lee Winter book, but this one could be my favorite one yet. This was a great story, and I read it in practically one sitting. Age gap & a fake relationship. I'm in!...more
When it comes to lesfic, a lot of fan favorites are: age gaps, ice-queens, Hollywood, fake relationships, good communication, and slow burn romances. Winter provides all of these but with a spin.
For just a few examples, an age gap of nine years is made greater by Summer being a former child star and looking another fi ...more
I absolutely adored both of the MCs, and completely belie ...more
Nobody writes an ice queen like Lee Winter. She truly is the queen of the ice queen. She builds up their walls, fortifies their heart and brings in the perfect lady to thaw all that ice. I live for her writing. Over the past few months I have hit a major wall with reading, nothing really piqued my interest and the books you thought would be knockouts were just meh. Happens right? Well, I am so glad I picked this one up because I don’t care how big your funk ...more
Absolutely wonderful read in every sense. Amazing characters, lovely story, great supporting cast. All of that delivered through engaging and expertly written prose. This book is definitely in my top 5 of near 300 books I've read this year. Do yourself a service and get the book right now. Lesfic romance does not get any better than this.
I absolutely loved the way the characters were written. Winter can write an ice queen like nobody's business and Elizabeth's frostiness would make ice cubes tremble in their tray. I was a little worried about Summer being a bit of a pushov ...more
What is it about Lee Winter’s books that makes it so difficult for me to write intelligible reviews?
Summer Hayes is a former child-star making her debut in a not-so-good medical TV series. In addition to providing her with her first potentially big part as an adult, Choosing Hope gives her a chance to act beside her idol, British actress Elizabeth Thornton – Bess to her friends -, who plays the part of the show’s villain.
Summer is absolutely adorable but not annoyingly so and that makes her ...more
Ms.Winter's wisdom continue to shine through Breaking Character, she wasn't a lazy / OTT author. Every single idea planted in the story received great care, the way she in ...more
I have adored every Winter book I have read to-date, so leaving this review is almost painful. I usually get to jump up and down and fawn over her characters and praise her writing and storytelling. I wish I had the same opportunity here.
I felt as though “Breaking Character” could have been written by any well-known lesfic author who continuously uses the same formula. Put Winter’s name on it, however, and it doesn’t fe ...more
It was even more enjoyable on the second read. I love these characters.
Solid 4/5! L ...more
Silly me. Lee Winter elevates this romance from predictable to awesome thanks to her deep look into the psyches of her main characters. Elizabeth and Summer are not cardboard cutouts in fancy dress but living breathing wo ...more
"And Playing the role of Myself" is one of my favourites. So, I was excited to read this one. And well, Lee Winter definitely nailed it. Elizabeth who has an Ice queen reputation(but actually is a very sweet and lovely person) meets Summer who look young and is loved by everyone(who has a litt ...more
For me Lee Winter is an author I don’t really need reading the blurb before I buy it, so far they were always absolutely enjoying and well written. Breaking Character was no exception.
I loved the storyline, even though it isn’t a new one. It’s fantastic how this author creates all the different characters, not only the MCs, also the secondary characters.
Bess and Summer are both loveable women and I wanted them ...more
Second read / listen.
So everyone knows that I'm having a difficult time with audio books. But this one was extremely well done. Thanks to those who suggested I should listen to this one to get out of the bad narrator rut.
And I don't know if it was the narration or what, but I ended up liking the book even better than the first time.
I think I went into this with too high of expectations based on all of the ARC reviews. I was a bit let down. Don't get me wrong, this was a really solid s ...more
And damn ! I had swear I would try to avoid the fake relationship trope till the end of the year, and when the shoe dropped around 33 percent, I was already hooked. So here goes my end of year resolution ... But it was worth it.
So worth it that I have already started rereading it and will add more about my impression later !
24 hours later, I ...more

That’s in exchange of an honest review that I received an ARC of « Breaking Character » …
So, here it is !!
Thank you Ylva Publishing for providing me this book.
My rating : 3.5 ⭐️
The story is mainly set in Hollywood (Los Angeles - CA, USA)and focuses on :
° Elizabeth « Bess » Thornton, a so-called icy British A-lister and America’s most-hated villain stars in « Choosing Hope » a top-rated TV medical drama that she deeply hates.
° Summer Hayes, adorable former child-s ...more
