Full disclosure I received a free paperback in conjunction with the blog tour in exchange for an honest reviewOne of the things I really didn’t like about Manny in the beginning of the first book this is a preuel was his self righteousness He criticized everything about Hollywood but proceeded to act like he was a part of that culture by fooling around with different girls and such I wasn’t really sold on him being Lia’s love interest at first but he did grow on me as the books went along However in this preuel we get a really good look into his mindset while he was transitioning from boy to manIn the beginning Manny is a pretty confused young man He sort of likes his friend Beth who he trains with in the mornings At the same time Liana Marie will always hold a special place in his heart even though she seems to be in love with her current costar Evan And all of this takes place in a catty environment where publicity is important than doing what you actually feel like so even if he and Liana finally admitted their feelings for each other Lia’s bosses would not be happy with her dating a no name This understandably puts Manny in a very brooding mindset and leads to some of the stupid decisions I’ve alluded to as well as some of his hypocritical self righteousness Do I particularly like him at this point in his life No but he is an interesting character and it really does make me appreciate how much he’s changed by the second and third books in the seriesMy only real complaint about this preuel is that the plot is a little disjointed Sometimes it feels like there are random scene changes that I had a hard time keeping up with and it certainly wasn’t because of formatting issues or anything like that I think that sometimes Carla Hanna pared down her writing a little too much and should have left in some descriptions of the different locations and the transitions between locations It does make for a fast read but I really would have appreciated a little description so I wouldn’t have to deal with the occasional confusionThe plot however is pretty good It starts out with Manny learning about the kerfuffle over Lia’s last movie and it goes through her filming of Constantine’s Muse and all the screwed up things that come along with it as I saw from her perspective in Starlet’s Web Her trials and tribulations are always at the forefront of Manny’s mind but he has his own things to worry about money Alan’s gossip blog spreading lies about his love life and his growing willingness to admit to Lia that he really does love her It’s by no means a straightforward journey but that’s probably in part why I loved Starlet’s Man so much Life isn’t a straightforward plot line and neither is this book Manny has his ups and downs but finally comes through as a caring young man who is no longer the messed up self righteous boy we meet in the beginning It’s a satsifying journeySince this is a preuel you can absolutely read it before you read the main series but as a matter of personal preference I’d recommend reading Starlet’s Web first because I just like Liana as a character Manny is interesting enough and grew to be a better person but being introduced to his self righteous younger self so soon could turn you off a wonderful series But if you like reading the preuels first go ahead This is a good bookI give this book 45 stars
