Goodreads:  Life has been rough for starlet Amber since leaving rehab. She’s been two years sober, but no one seems to believe her -- not the gossip media, not casting agents, and most certainly not her spotlight-loving parents. With her friendships ruined by betrayal and her career at a standstill, Amber’s just trying to get her life back on track. It doesn’t help that her former love, movie star Connor Parks, keeps trying to draw Amber back in, not just to their relationship but to his hard-partying ways. One fateful night, Amber breaks down and agrees to join him on board his private jet as it readies for take-off -- a decision that will change her life forever and expose her to a whole new level of scrutiny and heartbreak.

Kritters Thoughts:  The star that Katie followed to rehab to get the inside scoop narrates this novella that takes place after the first book ends; after they left rehab.  Amber is trying to pick up the pieces and really move on as a starlet must do when they are overcoming some personal speed bumps, but a major tragedy hits and she must reevaluate everything.

I loved reading this one right after read the first - Spin (review was up an hour ago).  Katie told the full story in the first book and I agree with the author taking Amber's voice because I think Katie's story was complete in the first book.  I wouldn't have minded if this novella had gotten the full version treatment and a whole story told through Amber's point of view.

A follow up novella to the book Spin and using a different character to move the story further along was fantastic!  If you are new to Catherine McKenzie or a longtime fan, you will enjoy this little extra to the story Spin.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel  (or at least another one!)

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from the author.  I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for receipt of the book; rather, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
