My rating: 5 of 5 stars
One day, at the height of his infamy, Evan Winslow meets a girl called Emmy. His muse. (except he’s just quit painting).
Seven years later, Emmy has become Emmerson Quinn – mega star. Evan is hiding out, teaching in a small university. When Emmy turns up needing a place to hide, he understands.
The thing I loved about this book is that the characters are so believable. Great dialogue (not snappy for the sake of the one-liner, but genuinely natural). The characters change as the book progresses. Evan is over protective, but learns not to be over the top about it. Emmy is kooky (and annoyingly super competent at every-bloody-thing), but learns that she doesn’t have to please everyone.
Mrs Johanssen, Evan’s neighbour is just totally awesome.
I really enjoyed this book. I look forward to the sequel.
