Forgetting Aiden by Juliet Picard | Book Review*

Happy Release Day to Forgetting Aiden by Juliet Picard! I loved this story because of who Eva is as a person and how she balances her life in and out of the spotlight. This book follows her to therapy, the recording studio, auditions, and filming in a way that gives a backstage pass to Hollywood. The incorporation of social media also shows what it's like to be the person receiving hateful messages about decisions that were right for her. There is also a powerful message about how women can be seen in the media, as Eva struggles to be known as Aiden Press' ex over and over again.

Speaking of Aiden, he is a big factor in this story as well. Eva breaks up with him after his drinking gets too accessive and she sees a photo of him in bed with a model. And after that, a lot of positive things happen to her. She is asked to record a song with Xavier, who she starts a relationahip with, and she is cast as the lead role in an adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, directed by Hollywood's favorite director. However, when she walks in to her first day of filming and finds out that Aiden is playing the lead, Eva has to work hard to keep her professional image positive.

I don't want to give too much away because this book is out today and I want to give you a chance to read it on your own. I will say that Eva's story has a few twists and turns in it that make you question whether or not someone in the spotlight can have their own life or if everything is Hollywood is scripted. 

Welcome to Hollywood, where celebrities like me attend fancy galas, release new records, and star in classic films like Romeo and Juliet -- sometimes requiring simulated sex with their ex-boyfriend.

Aiden Press is Hollywood's newest bad boy, but he's no stranger to me. He traded in his sweet Country artist stardom for a shot at making it big as a pop star. I’m sure he’s on the verge of greatness with lyrics like big booty, cash money, and oh yeah.

Of course, he'll try to win me over with those baby blue eyes, gush-worthy smile, and deep V-line leading down to...

O Aiden!

I mean...

O Romeo, O Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?
