I actually attempted to discover if this was This book's main problem is that it is actually two decent books with the exact same plot, cut up and interleaved to produce one rather mediocre book. Once I got my bearings I found the book hard to put down. I should have knwn better. She wasn't doing her job - she wasn't doing any job, unless being a bitchy asshole is now a paid position on a film set. Good: An item in used but good condition. Personally I think that the two voices are too distinct in this initial venture and that the transition between the two characters is jarring to say the least. She wanted to see her sister and five-year-old niece, but so far her sister Daisy seems worn-down and strung-out, and her niece Pepper is manically pretending that nothing is wrong with the grown-ups around her.
Things get interesting when she shows up on the set and finds out that her star has hired a stunt double. I read first, and just trust me: put this one down and go get Agnes. That said, the fact that this all happens over 4 days makes his level of attachment the more sane one. Dont read with too logical perspective. Throw in Wonder Woman, High Noon, Pre-Columbian porn, non-stop action, and fast-paced dialogue, and you've got Don't Look Down, romantic adventure at its best. It needed more time to play out.
I get that she didn't like the changes to the script, but we're supposed to believe these people are professionals, and I have news for you folks: this is the way movie sets work. A dude who then got the woman he supposedly loved - and the narrative tried hard to sell that he did in fact love Lucy, and just wanted to get back together with her and get his life on track - involved with the terrorists as well, extorting her to pull off this stupid scheme. But not just any stunt double. Es hat mich nicht umgehauen, aber da es komplett anders war, als ich erwartet hatte, bekommt es von mir 3 Sterne! Tyler was deeply creepy but in the end what on earth was he doing there? Instead he has to babysit a bumbling comedian, dodge low-flying helicopters, and resist his attraction to a director who bears a distracting resemblance to Wonder Woman. Excellent characters, yummy hero only yummier if you can imagine, for being a real Green Beret , and a solid plot that flows naturally from who the characters are. There's plenty of action with this book, along with hot romance between Lucy and Wilder, but the plot seems not only meandering but confusing.
But I think this book just required way too much suspension of disbelief. So i gave this 3 stars. Wilder thought being a stunt-man and a military consultant for a clumsy movie star would be easy money, after all, there's only four days of shooting left on set. I had fun with this one, but I have to admit that it can be described pithily by a word that is very over-used in its pages: clusterfuck. Wilder himself I have many a word to say. Everything I like about Crusie romances was still there.
I always have a blast reading a Jennifer Crusie novel, but not this time. Yes, it is as crazy as it sounds. I remember that i really liked it then so much so. Did he just expect them to betray him, and the psycho was his backup? I mean, he can't always have been this guy. I hate that Lucy even allows her to be in her life, given Daisy's attachment to the womanizing bag of evil that is Nash. However from the very beginning this confused and bored me.
Jeder hat was mit jedem wie es scheint und mittendrin soll in den 4 Tagen, in denen das Buch spielt, so eine starke Liebe wachsen?. I got through it by cheering on the alligator. I definitely would have liked to know what his actual name was. He writes under the pen names of Joe Dalton, Robert Doherty, Greg Donegan and Bob McGuire. Wilder is Lucy Armstrong is a director who makes dog food commercials--by choice, not lack of talent.
Before becoming a novelist, Bob was a Green Beret. I have a few authors that I may rely upon for sufficiently interesting characters, a plot that extends beyond millionai Let me make one thing clear. The pair's second collaboration, Agnes and the Hitman was both funnier and more satisfying, so I will be giving Wild Ride a chance. The whole stunt team was Nash's team in this bullshit scheme. But as soon as Lucy Armstrong arrives on set, she discovers that the staff is in chaos, the make-up artist is suicidal, and the stunt director just happens to be her ex-husband. This is a tough one to rate, because there was stuff I really enjoyed about it, and stuff I really didn't.
Ich habe ihn zum Glück erst am Ende des Buches gelesen warum auch immer und bin sehr froh darüber, denn er verrät ziemlich viel von der Geschichte und nimmt damit glaube sehr viel Spannung weg. Jennifer Crusie is one of those. Wilder's, then they cleaned up the manuscript together. With a plot full of holes and a hero who is borderline, Don't Look Down is still readable with an exciting ending, but it lacks the quick wit and warm humor that make Crusie's other books such outstanding reads. He and his friend, helicopter pilot Major LaFavre, seem to have a fetish about women's breasts. Lucy Armstrong has come to Savannah to finish the last four days of filming on a romantic action movie called Don't Look Down. Other than that, this book was pretty forgettable.
But there was some good news coming out of this book. Also the crazy random heist kidnap murder psycho plot was just not working for me. Getting Rid of Bradley was pretty good and so was Charlie All Night. And yes, it is as much fun. Lucy Sullivan is a director of television commercials who's just been offered her big break: a chance to direct an action movie. Her only flaw was Wilder. Full of suspense and humor, nonstop action and fast-paced dialogue, Don't Look Down is the perfect blend of male and female, adventure and romance, Mayer and Crusie.
Instead, he is recruited by the C. The only way this could make sense is if they knew about the mob stuff. Against her better judgment, she accepts a four day job to finish the last scenes of a movie for which her ex-husband is the stunt coordinator. You know, I like a good bar fight. The cast of local characters makes for a colorful, albeit clichéd, ensemble: Sexy older women, backcountry hicks, an emotional bodyguard and a mobster-in-disguise are added to the mix, though readers may get lost in the mish-mash of names and whodunits as the complicated mafia history unwinds.
