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.

I chose Lucas as my safe haven...he chose the role of a lifetime.
For the next three months, I’ll share my nights with a stranger, watching as he buries his pain, immersed in his role and living as someone else.

We’ve done this before. I tell myself it’s just another movie, and he’ll return to me.

I should’ve known this time would be different.

To get my husband back, I’ll need the strength of ten men.

As it turns out, I’ll have to go through two.(less)

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

Method is a book unlike anything I’ve read before. I think it’s Kate’s best work yet. The writing is stunning and complex and just… everything. This book had my heart beating so fast, I was anxious, happy, sad, emotional, and at the end I took a deep breath and smiled so big. It was a journey, truly brilliant, and definitely one of my top reads of 2019.

This is the story of a married couple, Mila and Lucas. Luc

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

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 and

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

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.

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

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

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

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 know

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.

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!

I love love love when I can open a book and get completely engrossed in the words that are inspiring not only a mystery, but also a deep and suspenseful love that is unmatched. Lucas and Mila had a love that surpassed any logic I could have ever come up with. But that's the definition of t

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

‘For Method actors, what looks effortless on screen takes far longer to put together.’

Method by Kate Stewart was beautifully written, incredibly emotional and unique as well as captivating. The story intrigued us and we pretty much read it back to front in one sitting. Method is without question one of Kate Stewart’s best work, it had maturity, poignancy and the theme was dealt with sensitively and handled with care and attention. It was interesting and compelling.

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.

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

Wow! Just wow! I should have known I was in for a mind-blowing ride when the prologue tore me apart and the story was only just beginning. I’ll try to keep this as spoiler free as possible because this story just can’t be read any other way.

Lucas and Mila Walker are complex characters. Their chemistry exudes from the pages. And there is definitely some hot and heavy scenes, but that’s not what draws me in and keeps me there. It’s who they are as individuals and as a couple that had me on edge.

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

So, if you are familiar with Kate Stewart’s book you know she doesn’t do anything ordinary. Her stories are unique, risky, emotional, and heartbreaking. The hero in this story is a Hollywood star but not as typical as you might think. This story is not about the glitz and the glam of a superstar. Lucas has serious demons. On the outside, he seemingly has it all – a beautiful wife and a successful career. But he is screaming inside, buried in pain over the death of his best friend. Lucas took on ...more

Kate Stewart writes different, unique, captivating stories... get ready for a journey of Hollywood darlings... you won’t know what hits you! You will get the emotions, the gut-wrenching pain and sadness and you will be built up again... it is the most perfect story and one you don’t want to miss.

Kate Stewart, is near the top of my list of favorite of authors! If she writes it...I’ll read it! This novel was told in duel POV, that went back and fourth between past to present, between a four month time span, also included MANY flash backs.

I am in awe. I finished reading this story this morning and it was amazing. I read the blurb when it was initially released and knew enough that I wanted to read this story and then put it out of my mind. Anyone who follows my reviews knows I'm not much on blurbs especially from favorite authors and Kate is certainly a favorite of mine. This story is intense and dark in some places. If you decide to read you need to be all in. This is an intricately woven story with multiple (well documented) ti ...more

“I love you,” he whispers as a tear spills from my own eye and he catches it with his finger before sucking it into his mouth. It’s here on my knees, while he comes on my tongue that I know we’re going to be okay. Not after when he pulls me into his lap and cradles me, not when he’s kissing me so long and hard that I detect a small semblance of us again. It wasn’t when he took me home and wordlessly fucked me all night. It was then, while I was at my most vulnerable, when he let me see him at his, that I knew we could make it through this.” 1 likes
