Jake Koranda is both New York's most brilliant playwright and Hollywood's hottest actor. Difficult, talented, and tormented, he has no patience for international glamour girls, not even ones with beautiful bodies and smart-aleck mouths. But there's more to the Glitter Baby than shine, and Fleur's tougher than Jake expects. Even with the odds stacked against her, she's fiercely determined to discover the woman she's destined to be. An ugly duckling who can't believe she's turned into a swan . . . A tough-guy movie star with a haunted past . . . In a land of broken dreams, can two unlikely lovers trust their hearts?

I'm a huge SEP fan...listen to her books over and over..especially the Chicago Stars series(LOVE Natural Born Charmer). Glitter Baby was well written, but the characters were just difficult to like. Wasn't the sassy cute style of Ain't She Sweet but it is worth a listen.
Book was super. Narration was super. I wanted it to go on and on. I will look for books read by Julia Gibson, and am already a fan of Susan Elizabeth Phillips.
The most generous thing I can say is to wonder if this is an early, unpublished, work that they recycled to make a couple of bucks. This is so much weaker than other SEP books. I keep waiting for the story to get started...but nothing.
Furthermore, the sound quality is terrible, it is muffled. I can't blame the reader, she can only read what is on the page. I doubt I'll finish this one. Life is too short.
SEP never fails to write a great journey and glitterbaby is no exception. Reminded me a bit of Fancy Pants.
