I enjoyed Susan Elizabeth Phillips' What I Did for Love overall with its focus on the lives of two famous actors and how their every move is followed by the paparazzi. Georgie York
starred in a television sitcom in her youth, but her career hasn't done much since then. Her co-star then, Bramwell Shephard, was a real tearaway who ended up getting the series cancelled. When Bramwell comes back into
Georgie's life, she tries to keep him at a distance, but it seems that Bramwell can help Georgie with her problems -
with a fake marriage.
As Georgie and Bramwell start their fake life together, she begins to wonder if he's changed. Why does he employ such a strange and prickly housekeeper? Is he really as unreformed as everyone assumes? Can their fake relationship become anything more?
Although there aren't any great surprises or novelties here, What I Did for Love is still a reasonable read.
The author delivers some interesting insights into the lives of famous people and how so much of their behavior is designed to show a particular face to the media.
