Fast Glamour by Maggie Marr Blog Tour with 4 star review

Glamour Series, #3
New Adult Contemporary
Released July 23, 2014
A broken heart forever bears scars. . .

Sterling Legend grew up a prince in the City of Angels. His life was perfect and he wanted for nothing until his entire world shattered. He lost everything dear to him the year he turned seventeen. Now he’s grown into a formidable man on the cusp of outrageous success. His life revolves around his work and all the beautiful baubles that Los Angeles can offer to a wealthy young man. He’s buried his feelings and his heart so that he will never be hurt again.

A lost love that she could never forget . . .

Rhiannon Bliss was forced to leave L.A. to extinguish the fire of a first love, but an ocean, a different country, and seven years couldn’t quell her desires. Now she’s returned to the City of Angels to care for her mother. Can she fight her feelings for the man that once broke her heart? Does she even want to?

Finding your way back to love can be an impossible path. . .

Sterling Legend is at the top of the entertainment industry. His fast rise to success due to his talent and to his last name. But Sterling wants to find success on his own. He is on the path to producing his first film, without his famous father as the star, when the ex-love of his life re-enters his world. Rhiannon Bliss left seven years before without a word. Sterling has no need to forgive, but his desire for Rhiannon is overwhelming. Can two broken hearts use the heat of their attraction to find their way back to love?

This is the second book in the series that I have read, although there are three. It can easily be read as a stand alone. 

I love a good story about second chances at love. This book did not disappoint. Sterling and Rhiannon fell in love as teenagers, but then she moved to Ireland. Now, 7 years later, she has returned to help her mother recover. The mystery behind why Rhiannon moved kept me intrigued through most of the book. Since Sterling never knew why she left, you knew there were family secrets kept from him that was going to be revealed at some point. Secrets that I felt were going to test Sterling and Rhiannon's relationship again. That's what kept from putting this book down for long. 

I had a love/hate relationship with the characters. I loved Sterling. He seemed like an all around great man. He'd be perfect to bring home to meet the parents. Rhiannon, not so much. She left her life for a reason, one she kept from Sterling. That just rubbed me the wrong way. She should have been honest with him all those years ago. With him being left with so many questions about their relationship, I think it made more difficult for him to allow his heart to find happiness anywhere.
