I had seen this book everywhere and everyone was giving it lots of great reviews so I was definitely intrigued. But sometimes a book being reviewed so well gets me nervous that I may not like it. Fortunately, I was worried over nothing, because there is no doubt that this book met the expectations I had because of all the great reviews. Evelyn is irresistible in every way. She’s bold, beautiful and gives her opinion freely which is why I loved her character. I couldn’t wait to find out more and more about the story of Evelyn Hugo. This book dives into the many stories of Evelyn’s life and relationships plus a secret that she has held closely for decades. Also, since June is pride month I encourage you to read this book now. You won’t regret it! This is one of my favorite reads this year and it’s definitely a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ read!
Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now?Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband has left her, and her professional life is going nowhere. Regardless of why Evelyn has selected her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career. Summoned to Evelyn’s luxurious apartment, Monique listens in fascination as the actress tells her story. From making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the ‘80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way, Evelyn unspools a tale of ruthless ambition, unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love. Monique begins to feel a very real connection to the legendary star, but as Evelyn’s story near its conclusion, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways.
