Book Review -- New York Dolls by Catherine Hensley

New York DollsNew York Dolls by Catherine L. Hensley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was provided with a digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

When Denton, an intern working at Glitter, the magazine that the entire fashion industry pivots around, gets a chance to work on her first assignment, she least expects the turmoil that would come with it. Switching identities with her editor, Anna Creel, Denton goes as Anna to crack her first fashion report. After unexpectedly doing Amber a favour, Denton is thrown into the showbiz and spotlight by Amber. When she drinks in the full flavour of her newfound identity and the luxuries, she falls for, and in turn wins over the attention of the heart-throb Chris. Denton's intoxication is all short-lived, when Anna finds out about Denton's new powerful connections. Anna assigns to bring some inside scoop from the lives of Amber and Chris. Denton, at a very perplexing dilemma, needs to choose between her career on one side and her loyalty to the two people who matter to her - her new best friend and beloved - on the other. What she chooses and how she deals with the consequences is what the book takes us through.

The book was a bright and brisk romance read, with a lot of emotionally pulling moments. I loved the characterisation of Amber, easily trusting and ever so endearing. There wasn't much depth to the rest of the characters, but that was compensated for by the whirlwind pace of the plot and the chirpy narration.

I definitely recommend this book to lovers of romance tales.

My rating for this book: 4 stars
