CLP Blog Tours Book Review: Staged by Ruby Preston

March 18, 2013 by  
Filed under Chick Lit Review

stagedRuby Preston is on tour now with CLP Blog Tours and Staged. I was super excited to get this book, as I highly enjoyed the first in this Broadway series, Showbiz. Scarlett Savoy is back and ready to conquer the Broadway biz – for real this time. She is now a producer for her own company, has financial backing thanks to a good friend, has a hit show on her hands, and even more pieces fall into place when she snags a sought-after director and a Hollywood starlet to play the lead. The only thing she needs now? A theater.

Oh, there is so much more to Staged than just Scarlett trying to find a theater and making her show a success. The most intriguing part to me was the romance – just who was Scarlett going to end up with? I hate to drop a (very minor) spoiler, but it looks like we won’t know that answer until the third and final book in this series. I’m not sure you would absolutely need to read Showbiz in order to catch on to this book, but I actually like the first just a smidge more, so I would recommend it anyway! And I’m definitely looking forward to the third and seeing how Scarlett’s journey comes to an end.

4 stars

Showbiz by Ruby Preston

August 29, 2012 by  
Filed under Chick Lit Review

Ruby Preston is currently on tour with CLP Blog Tours and Showbiz. I can’t say I have ever been a real big Broadway fan. I have attended a Broadway show many years ago on a high school trip, but that is about my extent of it. But I was excited to read about a subject that I didn’t know much about, getting an insider’s behind the scenes look, and possibly learn a few new things. Well – this book was a hit for me! Preston really knocked it out of the park with drama, mystery and a cast of characters that made this book the delight it was.

MC Scarlett Savoy has been slaving for years as an under-appreciated apprentice to the “King of Broadway.” Her ruthless boss shows no mercy and will do whatever it takes to come out on top. Scarlett finds out that he might be paying off critics to rave about his shows, and wonders if she can continue to work for him – or if it’s finally time to break out on her own. At the same time, she happens to meet influential gossip columnist and sparks fly – but is he interested in Scarlett the woman, or is he more interested in her job and the story it could provide? Add in a suicide, over the top Broadway characters (on and off the stage) and complicated love lives, and you have yourself a winner!

This book flowed effortlessly for me, and I blinked in confusion when I came to the end. It went so fast! A true page-turner, and it thrilled me to be exposed to something I previously had very little knowledge on. A novel that is full of theatrics, from the characters to the scenarios, this is one for you to check out!
