  • After being leant this book by my sister, I was profoundly disappointed at the plot, the use of word play, and the overall character who was supposed to be the leading lady and the star of the novel
  • It would be best to start at the plot, which was boring and more than a little annoying
  • The only problem is, these events go from one to the other without any fluid motion
  • It didn’t flow well in my opinion, and left me annoyed that the story was jumping between so many different events
  • I would not recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a book with depth

      Kendal Hart, a character on the popular soap opera, “All My Children”, came out with a novel on the soap opera series, “Charm”, that is available for purchase by fans of the show. After being leant this book by my sister, I was profoundly disappointed at the plot, the use of word play, and the overall character who was supposed to be the leading lady and the star of the novel. Not only was the main character, Avery Wilkins, a bit annoying, but she failed to bring about the strength and power that lay behind all women when they are searching for their dreams and overcoming struggles.

      It


      would be best to start at the plot, which was boring and more than a little annoying. The main character, Avery, is in the process of furthering her cosmetics company, all the while talking about her troubled past and poor upbringing. Throughout the story, she encounters her adoption from parents she thought were her birth parents, and movie star birth mother, two lovers, keeping her business afloat and psychotic business partner who is trying to take over the company. The only problem is, these events go from one to the other without any fluid motion. It didn’t flow well in my opinion, and left me annoyed that ...

      • the story was jumping between so many different events. It was like the novel was trying too hard to get readers to like it and keep it interesting, that instead of wowing readers, it left them scatter brained and confused. Also, the main character through one long pitty party for herself, and she is not a character who is relatable. The only thing I knew about her for sure was that she was a giant contradiction. She couldn’t stand when people, even her own sister, felt bad for herself or vented about her life troubles, but that’s all she did herself. She continuously reminded readers about her
        poor childhood in a poor me type of way that was very aggravating. Also, she got mad at her boyfriend for keeping a secret from her, but she did the same thing, and one of the those secrets she kept was about another man she was having a relationship with.

        The usage of word play and sentence structure was also very poor. I think that there was an attempt at trying to create a character who was classy and strong, but came out with a character who was unemotional, unlikable, and annoyingly self absorbed. I would not recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a book with depth.
