really liked it

Hmmm... what can I say? Loved it!

This book was a re-telling of Shakespeare's 'The Taming of the Shrew' therefore a bit unoriginal in that aspect. Many romantic comedies and novels have used this template, almost act for act :)

However when JJ Murray stays away from making his female protags bizzarely unlikable, he has a penchant for hilarity that is unmatched.

I loved the humbling of the diva and loved the fact that the male protag was brooding and gutsy (unlike Jay from Renee and Jay). He had been through a number of 'exotic femmes' before so he could give or take Kathleen (the diva).

I also liked the non-IR subplot of Kathleen's assistant and the male protag's brother although the age difference had put me off at first.

Finally, I love how JJ went into detail about the movie production. I love authors who put a lot of effort and research into their 'theme' and they inspire me (I write as well).
