Publisher's Summary

Life has become a farcical mess for icy British A-lister Elizabeth Thornton. America's most-hated villain stars in a top-rated TV medical drama that she hates. Now, she's been romantically linked to her perky, new co-star, Summer, due to the young woman's clumsiness. As a closeted actress, that's the last thing Elizabeth needs. If she could just get her dream movie role, life would be so much better. The only problem is that the eccentric French film-maker offering it insists on meeting her "girlfriend", Summer, first. 

Summer Hayes is devastated when her co-star shuns her for accidentally sparking rumors that they're lovers. Now the so-called British Bitch has the audacity to ask Summer to pretend to be her girlfriend to get her a role? Elizabeth doesn't even like Summer! Oh, how she'd love to tell her no. And Summer definitely would if it wasn't for the fact she's maybe a tiny bit in love with the impossible woman. 

Contains mature themes.

Entertaining Book!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Angela Dawe is an excellent narrator, whose different voices, accents, and intonations bring the entire cast of characters to life. Summer, a former child star is trying to cross the bridge into adult roles. She is a cast member of Choosing Hope, a hit medical drama starring renown actress Elizabeth, who has become disillusioned with her role as hated villain in the show. A phot of Elizabeth grabbing Summer to prevent her from a fall leads Hollywood types to speculate on their “romance,” which leads to movie roles, a fake relationship for the movie, a friendship, and finally something much more. It is a charming story!

Ice Queen Heaven

I loved this book so much when I first read it. Now, on audio, it's even better. Lee Winter has a way with ice queens. And melting them. If I only had 50 books that I was forced to read & re-read for the rest of my life...this would be one of them. Oh, and Angela Dawe's narration is wonderful.

Winter and Dawe: double trouble!

I regularly find myself in trouble after finishing a Lee Winter book, as no other book on my to-read list seems capable of holding my attention.
This edition of Breaking Character pairs Winter's exquisite writing with a masterful performance by Angela Dawe, and the result is... double trouble!
How am I supposed to listen to another audiobook after *this*? 😭

This audiobook raises the quality bar for the genre, and I would highly recommend it.

interesting but frustrating

This is a pretty common story line in lesfic it's been done amazingly and it's been done horribly. this is right there in the middle. for the most part I enjoyed it. the characters were very relatable and very fleshed out. the problem for me was how one worked so hard to not come out to the other and how the other was sooooo oblivious to the others feelings (sorry trying to leave less spoilers). it just seemed like too much effort into building their seperate sources of tension.
One thing that was interesting and made me laugh, I hope it was intentional, was how the author seemed to be testing the narrator. there were times when a new characters accent was announced just before they spoke and it made me think of an improv director, kiwi accent! now Texan! now Scottish! now high English! now French. and the narrator stepped up wonderfully.

Fabulous

Wonderful book. Great storyline with fully rounders, believable characters.

I loved the ‘slow burn’ of the developing romance and the added bonus of fake girlfriend.

The sex scenes were great.

Angela Dawe deserves special mention. The narration of a book an make or break it. Angela Dawe makes this book. Her narration is wonderful - eg - different and distinctive voices for the characters. Her English accent wasn’t half bad! Her voice has a lovely cadence and timbre to it.
