Loving David (2011)

Ever heard the phrase 'Don't judge a book by its cover'? Well, that's the case with Loving David. The cover does nothing for the incredibly moving and poignant story held within its pages. It tells the story of Charlotte, a 43-year-old widow, who finds an unexpected visitor in the form of a major movie star in the backseat of her car one day. Not knowing what to do when the actor, named David King, says he needs somewhere to hide, Charlotte instinctively says he can stay with her at a retreat she's attending in the California woods. However, seeing as the retreat consists of a bunch of women who are there to discuss divorce and the loss of their husbands, David isn't exactly a welcome addition. Luckily for him, he's the sexiest man any of the women have seen in years and he's so charming that no one can say no to him. When he and Charlotte start to form a bond, however, some of the women get worried that David, 30, is taking advantage of the closed-off Charlotte and sees her only as an older woman to have a fling with before he returns to his life of premieres and jet-setting around the globe like the A-list actor he is. But what develops is a real, pure love that neither of them can fight. Even with the dilemma of David's ex, the beautiful - and young - actress Olivia, threatening to tear them apart, it seems like they were meant for this moment. But can Charlotte finally have her fairytale ending? Can it all be as perfect as it seems? This story is guaranteed to have you lusting after that movie star you see on the front of every tabloid and questioning every story you read on gossip sites. It will also have you crying by the end so make sure you have your tissues handy. To recap : You do not want to miss this gem of a novel. Don't let the cover or the fact that it's not published by a large publisher scare you off because this just could be the best novel you've read in a long, long time. (AS)
