Roxanne s overbearing mother pulls her out of high school in Oklahoma and drags her out to Hollywood to be a movie star Despite her mother s best efforts, she succeeds I have always and will always love my Sunfires, and this was a natural plane read on my way to LA, ha This one breaks with formula a bit there are nominally three men, though Roxanne always loved her career best but I love the ridiculously fun look at 1930s studios Will not ever not love. I know, I know but I really did love this book as a teenager A girl goes to Hollywood during the great depression to make it big The boy she likes is mean to her What s not to like about that Read this when I was a teenager I LOVED this book Rereading my way through the Sunfire series, in publication order I tend to enjoy the Sunfires written by Jane Claypool Miner and this was no exception Although Roxanne comes to Hollywood not knowing that she has what it takes to make it in front of the camera, she s a nice mix of mild mannered and tough She is friendly and accommodating, something that works when she s trying to find her feet in a city that eats up aspiring actresses and spits them out whole, but a series of mishaps graduall Rereading my way through the Sunfire series, in publication order I tend to enjoy the Sunfires written by Jane Claypool Miner and this was no exception Although Roxanne comes to Hollywood not knowing that she has what it takes to make it in front of the camera, she s a nice mix of mild mannered and tough She is friendly and accommodating, something that works when she s trying to find her feet in a city that eats up aspiring actresses and spits them out whole, but a series of mishaps gradually give her the strength to stand up for herself and her career Along the way, like a good Sunfire heroine, she acquires a collection of potential love interests her childhood sweetheart Henry, waiting back in Oklahoma for her to come back and bring him his slippers and pipe her devoted friend John, son of a studio owner, whose sweet puppy love is not returned and Gary Marlowe, ambitious rising young star, whose stage kisses leave her weak in the knees, but who remains focused on his career In Claypool Miner fashion, the heroine and her personal growth take center stage and not much time is given over to the romance Still, at the end, the romance builds to a believable point and Roxanne s feelings edge ahead of her ambition Though the story leaves me unconvinced that theirs will be a HEA given the uncertainty of Hollywood relationships and the fact that Roxanne unlike most Sunfire heroines very sensibly refuses any talk of marriage I am left feeling satisfied at least at a HFN.ROXANNE isn t one that I read back in the day, so I didn t have any expectations going into it I do have a big interest in early Hollywood and can be critical of novels set then, but I found myself thoroughly enjoying this I was rather apprehensive about reading this book I m not the type of girl to enjoy Hollywood actress romances featuring a blonde heroine I thought Roxanne herself would be a shallow runaway with everything handed to her on a silver platter.Much to my surprise, Roxanne is very down to earth It s her that follows the money and tries to keep her head afloat while her mother is the runaway that wastes all the money and nearly single handily ruins Roxanne s Hollywood career However since this i I was rather apprehensive about reading this book I m not the type of girl to enjoy Hollywood actress romances featuring a blonde heroine I thought Roxanne herself would be a shallow runaway with everything handed to her on a silver platter.Much to my surprise, Roxanne is very down to earth It s her that follows the money and tries to keep her head afloat while her mother is the runaway that wastes all the money and nearly single handily ruins Roxanne s Hollywood career However since this is a cheesy romance novel, things work out well in the end for the little starlet The romance was very steamy At least, it felt like that to me The chemistry between Roxanne and the guy she ends up with, oh, I wish there had beenscenes like that The adult part of me really wishes it had beengraphic, because, whoa, the passion that I felt coming from those two.I m really happy I decided to get this book This is one Sunfire you need to get if you are on the hunt
