Hollywood is a temptress, a trickster, a soul-stealing devil. I married an A-list player, knowing I come second place to his craft. But Lucas and I are a golden couple, a modern-day fairy tale.

I’ve never doubted what we built...until the sudden death of Lucas’s best friend has scandal rocking the Hills and shaking the foundation of our relationship.

Edgy, angsty, heartbreaking but definitely deserved five shiny stars!
Great news, I finally found an amazing romance book to give five full stars. But this is not simple, plain emotional read. This book was a knife repeatedly stabbed into my heart and each stab wounded me deeper!
It made me scream, cry, curse, it made me exhausted, numb, angry and mostly it broke me into tiny pieces.
It was frustrating, captivating, unputdownable!
I adored heroine, Mila. She was smart, sophisticated, sexy. She was

Oh hell no.

One of my favorite tropes is Famous/Celebrities and my god did this book top my lists. The writing is spot on, brilliant, it's literally flawless with how it is told. It's left me in the biggest hangover the last 24 hours. It's all I think of. Lucas Walker, lord I haven't had a character consume me in so long. And Mila, this is one strong ass heroine. I fell in love with these characters along this beautiful journey. I won't go into detail, as you know, I think its good to go in
3.5 Stars

Overall Opinion: Whew! That was a doozy! The angst! It was a unique storyline and it held my interest completely because it was so interesting and different than anything I've read before. That alone makes me really want to rate this as 4 stars... but. I felt like there was waaaaaay too much inner dialogue going on. I get that the inner dialogue had a big role in setting up their relationship and the different tenses that the author bounces around between, but it made it feel like major

Love isn’t the issue. It never was. We’ve had it in abundance, along with a healthy dose of trust. He’d rearranged our universe to revolve around the other, and once we did, we were both sealed in our fate, destined to be the moon and obeying tide. I glowed in his affection while he swept me away with one electrifying wave after another.

Everybody: BEST BOOK EVERR. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


just really

Method is so much more than a book about acting and being famous. This story is about marriage and friendship. About sacrifices and loss. Guilt and redemption. At the core of this story it all comes down to love. Between husband and wife and two best friends. Method is a haunting, beautiful and heartbreaking love story.

Lucas and Mila. Their story is mixed with highs and lows as it should be when it comes to being in a marriage. He’s an actor and has finally made it to the big league of actors a

Gaaaaaaa.....this book killed me! I’ll tell you this much, reading any Kate Stewart book is an emotional wringer that’ll have you immersed so deeply it takes days to recover.

Sigh. I need to go self-soothe.

There's tears streaming down my face, an unending river of emotions that my heart cant contain anymore. Kate takes a blunt spoon and gouges out your soul. Brilliantly written, poignantly factual & dreadfully honest, it will shake you to your core. Make you analyze your own life, put your priorities into perspective and hopefully rearrange your wants & needs in the correct order.
And it's only a quarter in!

This was a wonderful, unique read! My only complaint was the time jumping. I found myself confused at times as to if we were in the past or present. Other than that I really enjoyed this story and appreciated how original the storyline was. I find it very hard to find books that don’t share common themes with all of the other ones out there. It was refreshing to find this story like no other. I also learned a lot about what Method acting is all about!

description This book has been ALL over my news feed of late, so of course, I had to see what all the fuss was about, and I liked it a lot. Was I blown away by it, no. I think for me there were just too many flashbacks, and time jumps. I was much more engaged in Lucas’s descent into madness and the fallout from that. I actually would have preferred to read more of that and fewer flashbacks that bogged the story down. 

The flashback issues aside...the rest of this book was fantastic. You could tell the auth

What is it about Kate Stewart's words that never fail to pull me into every single emotion that she instills into her incredible books. And this book? It was one emotional roller coaster full of heart wrenching and angsty romance. It was one of the most unique books I've read in a long damn while and I couldn't stop reading it. It reached into the very depth of my reader's soul and managed to pull out every feeling ranging

When Kate says she’s got a new book she wants me to read, I’m always excited. Always. However, the very first time she started talking about Method, I had those feels. You know the ones, especially if you’re a writer. The chills that break out across your neck. That other worldly feeling of something magical entering your life. Every word she uttered about this story both excited and drove me batty. I wanted it. I needed it. And she took her damn time getting it to me. (Understandable, but good ...more

What is this madness??? Kate Stewart is a diabolical genius, wrapped in a pretty package of wit, heart, and pure awesome. This book grabbed me by the throat from page one and didn't want to let go. Life Stuff and Adulting wrenched me away,(I'm a super slow reader these days) but it kept calling me and I hated having to wait to get back to it. But it was so worth it. Mila has to be one of the most kick-ass heroines I've ever read. And the acting/Hollywood technical aspects and jargon were soooo p ...more

3.5 Stars ⭐⭐⭐

This was such a great story but I still don't know if Lucas was a psychopath or what?

A really unique idea for a romance, I read this pretty quickly which means I was completely invested in the characters. I loved them both in the good times, the bad not so much.

I'm just saying, a book like Method will make you feel supremely inadequate when it's time to write a review. There are NO WORDS. There just aren't words for a book on this level. I'm sure if you go back and comb through enough of my reviews of Kate Stewart's books, they'll all say something like "this is my new favorite book by this author" or "this is one of the best books I've read this year." That was true at the time, but THIS, this story of ambition and raw grief and brutal heartache and t ...more

“I am his life and he is mine, and that’s the only way we’ve ever worked.”

Kate Stewart is such a phenomenal writer and I have loved each and every story she has created. With each new release I find myself loving it more than the last, and again it has happened, something that I didn’t think was possible. Method is unlike anything I have read to date, it was so unique and one I know I will remember for many years to come. The emotions this story evoked in me were real and I just did

Not only is the story is told in past and present within a 4 month time frame, but while in the "present" there are long and frequent flashbacks that go back to when the couple first meet. I have a tough time enjoying a story with too many flashbacks, this one takes it to the next level. It's a shame because the "present" had me all it, but I grew more and more frustrated with each interruption that sent me back to the past.

It took Method to bring me out of my book funk and get back the 5 stars rating!


Method is just exceptionally built! Not only is it moving but the way Kate Stewart built her story, alternating chapters between pas and present, beginning with the end then going to “four months ago” to follow with years past was brilliant, clever and demonstrates a huge talent!

“What’s left of the man on my porch is the evidence of a job well done and the cause of our demise.”

Told from dual POV.
Lucas (A-list Hollywood actor) and Mila (sommelier) have been married for 6 years and as the story opens you clearly know their marriage is in trouble.

First impression of Lucas & Mila: I'm devastated for them and I don't even know what's going on. I was sucked in immediately and I FELT their pain.

Kate Stewart is an incredible storyteller and this book was MORE THAN addicting. I read it in one night. A unique (COMPLETELY UNIQUE), refreshing, angsty story that demands your attention from start to finish! I’m still processing it, but man... it was so different, so well done, so smart... I’m kind of at a loss for words.

I knew from reading the prologue that I would be hooked. And hooked I was. Method was a book that grabbed me and took me on a journey full of angst, love, romance, heartache, desire, and raw breathless moments.

This story was different and unique. Told in past and present tense and in alternating POV’s, the story started at a low and anguishing point in Lucas and Mila’s life. The palpitations of their heartbreak resonated in my soul and I knew that I would be reading

I have to sleep on this a while before I can write anything about it. Thanks to Paula I decided to read it. It was supposed to be a 5 stars but the last 15% and its attempted twist to shock the reader annoyed me A LOT. I found it pathetic, weak and a cop out to behave as an asshole.

This book is character driven. The plot and the story is build from the characters chemistry. There is a lot of conversation that you have to read carefully.

I need to thank my friend Nova for this incredible read! And yes, folks, it IS incredible.

First, I am not a “fan girl” of any author and never will be! That is just not me. If I like a book, I will say so and vice versa when I don’t. So to say that this was an “incredible” read, it is the truth! The writing in itself is 10 stars. Why? Because this is not one of those fluffy or standard romances we typically come across these days. Nope. This was something altogether different because the author

Whiny insecure man-child with tendency to be over-melodramatic and his slave for life aka wife, who sacrificed a lot for him.
I don't find it admirable or romantic, when a woman makes sacrifices for a man. If she wanted someone to take care of, she could better adopt an animal from a shelter, honestly, better option to make a difference in this world.
Drama-lama based on what? At 22% I don't give a flying fork, what his/theirs(?) secret is...

What a beautiful emotional story! I was a sobbing mess from the beginning! I loved the whole idea of it and every angsty, emototional turn it took me on was quite a ride. Mila and Lucas was such a great couple, but things happen in life and the changes and turmoil they cause and experience, would tear anyone apart inside and out. Their love story was full of angst, drama, bad decisions and misunderstandings. I'll admit I rolled my eyes a lot and occasionally lost my cool, especially near the end ...more
