Everyone needs a safe space.
She’s nineteen. Her show has been cancelled and now she’s going to play the lead in a new prime time drama series, but is the world ready to take her seriously, or will she be typecast as the cute tween queen forever?
Her network has decided to be aggressive and has invested millions of dollars in an ad campaign for her show, money she’s not sure she can earn back. Her co-star can’t stand her, and the writing for the show turns out to be poor at best. The only reason Lizzie didn’t walk away from the job offer to begin with is because she’s broke, the victim of a decade of bad money management.
Then there’s Devon, the personal trainer at her gym. Arrogant and abrasive, he’s the last guy she should ever find attractive, but she has a hopeless crush on him anyway, and he doesn’t seem entirely disinterested either. In fact, sometimes he’s downright sweet to her. If only he weren’t an untamable bad boy who uses and dumps women like they’re nothing. Though Lizzie’s friends warn her to stay away, he’s the only person who can create what she needs: a safe space. But is there any way she can break him of his years' long habit of being a user?
Lizzie Warner, a former child actress looking to break into a more adult world, has a kind soul and cares about all her fans. One of those fans, a sick child in need of a bone marrow donor has always stuck with Lizzie.
Devon, Lizzie's best friend's personal trainer is cocky, a player, and when it comes to Lizzie, a joker, always teasing her about being Veronica on her hit television show.
Although Lizzie knows all this she can't seem to stay away from him and finds herself falling in love but will she really be the one to make him give up his player ways?
A Safe Space is full of friendship, growing up and love. Lizzie, inexperienced and Devon, a player find a balance between them that works for the both of them. The chemistry between the two is combustible and they both are able to let down their walls when it comes to one another.
The writing is genuine and full of emotion, the storyline a hit and the characters are wonderful.
I loved A Safe Space from the plot to characters everything about this book comes together to make it such a wonderful read.
I don't read many books about actors and actresses but this one blew me away. From beginning to end I wanted more. I needed to know what would happen next. I loved the characters and watching their relationship grow and develop and their mutual past.
A Safe Space is a great book. I can't wait to read more from the fabulous E.M. Tippetts.
