Book review of Red by @erica.spindler.author
So I've finally finished reading this book,Red was such a great book and I am so sad that I wasn't able to read it earlier. This is the first book from Spindler which I was able to read and I am so happy I found this book since it was so amazing.
This is one of those glorious and an unforgettable story that has you believe that dreams can and do come true. From the first page it grabs your heart and never lets go.
Becky Lynn is one of the most incredible characters I have read. Despite her painful and cruel childhood, coming from the wrong side of the “tracks” and labeled as “poor white trash” and all the heartbreak and obstacles in her life, she remained the kind, sweet and caring person she was, never giving in to the sordid, fickle world that is Hollywood. I became so emotionally involved in her life, sharing her rise from an unknown to the top as a supermodel and touched by her courage and her strength and how she slowly started to believe that she was a person of worth.
Growing up on the wrong side of the tracks in Bend, Mississippi, Becky Lynn Lee doesn't have the luxury of dreaming. With an abusive father and a broken mother, she always thought that this was it. But after the ultimate betrayal, Becky Lynn can no longer live the nightmare.
Determined never to go back, Becky Lynn escapes to Hollywood. As a photographer's assistant, she discovers a talent for spotting beauty and capturing the perfect shot. When the camera eventually turns on her, the awkward, shy Becky Lynn of her childhood disappears. But when the success she's achieved is threatened, Becky Lynn must find the strength to embrace her new identity and put the ugliness of her past behind her forever.
Becky Lynn was a nobody in Mississippi, or so everybody told her. So she fled to a world where dreams come true. Jack wanted to be a somebody. He wanted to be the top fashion photographer in the world. Now, supermodel Becky Lynn and high-priced photographer Jack Gallagher are in constant demand. But beneath the surface lurk secrets that threaten to destroy all they've achieved.
