June Laurie has spent the better part of her young adult years in the Hollywood world of fame, envy, and rumors, and has managed to come out of it mostly unscathed. Now that she’s finally followed her heart and married her true love, she knows she’s found the perfect end to her story. But at twenty-two years old, it turns out her story is only beginning — and marriage, it seems, is more of an opening act than a finale. When fans of June’s television show start spreading online rumors about her faithfulness to her new husband and fabricating an off-set romance between her and her costar, she learns that even marriage offers no immunity from the gossip that always seems to haunt her. With complications in her personal and professional lives threatening to topple them both, will June be able to hold to her beliefs and her newfound happiness, even as what she thought was her perfect ending transforms into the challenges of reality that lurk beyond the fairytale?
I have loved June for years and I was hesitant to read the last book in this series. Not because I didn't think I wouldn't love it, it's because I knew I would love it and be sad when I turned the last page. This last book for June wasn't all sunshine and roses. She struggles with some real issues and I thought Shannen handled them perfectly. June and Joseph get married and are quickly met with some challenges. As June tries to adjust to life as a new wife while still being on her TV show, it brings up problems. I don't want to give away what happens, but trust me, read with a box of Kleenex handy.
