The Fifteenth Minute by Sarina Bowen


Freshman Lianne Challice is known to millions of fans as Princess Vindi. But sometimes a silver screen sorceress just wants to hang up her wand, tell her manager to shove it, and become a normal college student. Too bad that’s harder than it looks.

She’s never lived a normal life. She hasn’t been to school since kindergarten. And getting close to anyone is just too risky — the last boy she kissed sold the story to a British tabloid.

But she can’t resist trying to get close to Daniel "DJ" Trevi, the hot, broody guy who spins tunes for hockey games in the arena. Something's haunting his dark eyes, and she needs to know more.

DJ's genius is for expressing the mood of the crowd with a ten second song snippet. With just a click and a fade, he can spread hope, pathos or elation among six thousand screaming fans.

Too bad his college career is about to experience the same quick fade-out as one of his songs. He can't get close to Lianne, and he can't tell her why. And the fact that she seems to like him at all? Incredible.

And I'm not happy with the second half of the book. It got boring.At about 70% or so I was thinking that didn't care what would happen to these characters one way or other.

Gahh ! It was a frustrating book Silvia! I wasn't happy with that either. I'm not a Christian but even I wasn't happy with the portrayal of a priest. There were so many things wrong about this book.
I could rant for hours about it!

Gisela (chicadorlando) | 4022 comments I confess I read the spoilers! *gasp* I wasn't feeling very motivated to start this one. After reading your spoilers, I'm not going to.

The same thing happened in The Understatement of the Year (The Ivy Years, #3) by Sarina Bowen , with Rikker's parents.

Same ole, same ole. Bad evil Christians/Catholics/Jews, bigots all...NOT! Ok, I'll take one book in the series but over and over, come on, the song needs a new tune and the dance needs some new steps. Just saying,
