Blurb: Ridiculously Proud: Diary of a Diva celebrates friendship, family, and true love.
This is the story of a shamed and conceited Broadway actress who moves back to her small-town home, where she learns that love and humility are far more important than fame and fortune.
My Thoughts: I was provided with a free copy of this book by the author for an honest review.
The story follows Caitlyn, an arrogant, rude, ridiculously proud Broadway star who, after making a scene that pretty much destroyed her career, moves back to Bonitas, the small town she grew up in with hopes of one day returning to New York to perform centre stage once again.
Right from the beginning, this book had me in stitches. Caitlyn’s snobbery compiled with Charlie’s sweet-natured yet sarcastic personality was just the perfect blend.
Charlie Kind is exactly what his name says he is – kind, but also an attractive, funny and helpful guy, who is pretty much perfect. Not my usual go to type, I much prefer a bad boy, but yet the author created the character of Charlie so well and with such an amazing personality that I couldn’t help but fall in love with him. On reading a previous review of this book in which the reviewer felt that Charlie had no flaws and therefore was a flat character, I have to respectfully disagree. I think he is flawed in the sense that he is too nice, and this comes around to bite him on the bottom towards the end of the book.
Caitlyn needs a nice guy like Charlie to bring her down a notch or two in a way that works for Caitlyn. You definitely see Caitlyn’s growth and development throughout the book from an arrogant, should I say it… bitch, to somebody who deserves to have somebody like Charlie in her life (well, I think she could still work on a couple of things, but nobody is perfect).
This is definitely a feel good, cheesy romance which, if turned in to a film would give a lot of your favourite romance movies a run for their money. It’s a quick read as it is quite a short novel, with a slow burn, clean romance storyline.
In my eyes, this book is fantastic and something I would read again. The only downside to this book for me, and it is a very small thing indeed, is that I would say this is more of a memoir than a diary so maybe the book should be called Ridiculously Proud: Memoir of a Diva.
