We also ask you to bless Lexi and keep her far away from those trampy girls who live out in Hollywood, where sin lies like a lion waiting to devour them all. Real meals. None of those Californian supermodel meals. They don't eat actual food, just puffed air. Make sure you call us every day. Remember to say your prayers. All the boys in California are gangsters. Or movie producers. And those are even worse.

I really enjoyed it.

This quick YA read is thoroughly fun wish-fulfillment, perfect for sitting half the day in a car repair shop, as I can testify. Alexia is half-Latina, half-white, growing up with her hard-working single mom in a small town in West Virginia, and living with her Abuela one of the best characters in the book. She is a straight A student, a geek who has never dated, though she strongly resembles a famous rock star.

Her bestie Lori is trying to push her into asking a cute guy to the Sadie Hawkins dan This quick YA read is thoroughly fun wish-fulfillment, perfect for sitting half the day in a car repair shop, as I can testify. Her bestie Lori is trying to push her into asking a cute guy to the Sadie Hawkins dance when Alexia runs afoul of the high school mean girl, who puts a photo of Alexia online, that goes viral. And nets Alexia a phonecall out of the blue: the manager of the rock star, who wants to hire her for insane amounts of money to double for said rock star, while the latter finishes her overdue album.

Alexia's life takes a turn into Hollywoodland, where yes, the rich get richer and shop at Prado, but they are beset with all the emotional baggage that ordinary people are. The story is full of missing relatives, hidden secrets, the fallout of lies, and a very cute Prince Charming for romance. The book is very short, Lori is scarcely more than a name, but Rallison makes up for the sketchiness of the West Virginia characters except for Sabrina, Alexia's mom, and Abuela by focusing on the California characters and their problems.

The pacing is fast, the rock star and the manager are quite complex, and Alexia goes through a lot of growing up in her two months. Altogether a fun read--and one that middle schoolers could be given. There is no sex, just some kissing, and no bad language. We even get some sarcasm for dangling modifiers, woo hoo for school! So much fun! A keeper for exactly this sort of day. I would have been over the moon for this story as a teen.

The Night My Husband Revealed To Me His Double Life

Alexia tries hard to help Kari and her image. She actually has some success and gets to meet Grant, a hunk of a singer. I liked how their relationship developed and boy does she get into some situations for being out with him. As always there are some hilarious scenes, but along with something to think about. From her trip she comes to realize what she was missing, and comes back with a good dose of confidence.

Major kudo points to Rallison for writing a book on a girl that is half-Hispanic and half-white; we don't see that often in young-adult literature. May 13, Kathy rated it really liked it Shelves: read-in , read-in So cute! I love escaping into Janette Rallison's books!

She creates great characters who despite their flaws actually have a moral compass and values. My Double Life was a fun fairy tale like story. One of those books that makes you smile and laugh and sigh. It's an upbeat and feel good story that can easily be read in an afternoon or evening. If you are looking for a light-hearted, quick read with a great message you can't go wrong with My Double Life.

Shelves: ya , chicklit-lite , squeaky-clean-reads. First up, the only reason I rated this book four stars instead of five is because I'm picky about my five-star books. Those are the ones that I put down and instantly want to pick up and read again right away.

Rallison's Fair Godmother series got that rating because I found them rib-crackingly funny. That aside, I really, really liked this book. I found it refreshing on many levels. First, it was short. I love long books as much as the next person, but sometimes it's nice to pick up a quick-read First up, the only reason I rated this book four stars instead of five is because I'm picky about my five-star books.

I love long books as much as the next person, but sometimes it's nice to pick up a quick-read kind of book that cruises along and accomplishes everything with admirable conciseness. My Double Life does just that. Granted, that also has to do with the genre. I didn't mind that he was Adonis personified. On that note, I bless every publishing god in existence that Rallison didn't tell us that.

In fact, for chick-lit, this was pretty skimpy on the descriptions of the lusciousness of the male lead. When I pick up a story or watch a movie about a small-town girl getting tangled up with superstars, I have a built-in expectation that she falls for the sweet, nerdy guy from her home town as part of her accepting that she values her roots. So I kept looking for him here. To my surprise, Rallison broke that trend and let Alexia fall for the hot rock star, instead. Yes, Grant was sweet and down-to-earth, but it didn't feel overdone or unrealistic.

In fact, Grant has a few genuine, celebrity-brat moments that, weirdly enough, made me like him even more, because it made sense that he would say something like that. Third, on a general level, I just really enjoyed the character development and unique personalities of each character. Even though they were supposed to be look-alikes, Alexia and Kari looked different in my head, because they had such distinct personalities. Now, I will admit that everything wrapped up maybe a little TOO tidily at the end, but considering the short length of the book, I found that acceptable and not overly problematic.

Alexia gets her happy ending, and you've grown to know and like supporting characters like Kari and Alex Kingsley enough that you like their endings, too. This is a book about warm fuzzy feelings. If you want something deep and profoundly moving, I have no idea what you're doing in this genre at all. Go somewhere else. All in all, My Double Life gave me exactly what I was looking for when I picked it up: a quick, fun read and a feel-good ending.

It never gets pretentious or attempts to be anything other than what it is, and that's why I liked it so much. May 01, Jasmine rated it really liked it Shelves: arc-from-goodreads. It's offical: I adore Janette Rallison. Okay, enough of me going on and on about unimportant things. Let's get on with this review, s It's offical: I adore Janette Rallison.

Let's get on with this review, shall we? So, the characters in this book were all superb! Alexia is simply amazing. She has a backbone, doesn't whine all day, and knows the value of money seeing as how she was brought up without many things that we all take for granted, such as haircuts and first hand clothing. What more could I ask for from the lead character? And than there's Grant. Ohhh my darling Grant yes MY darling Grant. I call dibbs on this piece of wonderful fictitious creation.

He's so beyond adorable. I love a bad boy just as much as the next girl, but it was refreshing to see such a pure hearted male character in this book. I'm pretty sure it's her grandmother. She was one of those people that I could imagine going "I am a character," on those commercials on USA. The image of her going in a club and hitting the dancers with a bible while yelling at them will always stay with me. That doesn't really happen in the book, but Alexia imagines that it could, ahaha :.

This book is about the relationship between Grant and Alexia, but it is also about something much bigger: finding out who ones true self really is. Alexia goes through a lot of change throughout this novel, and I am so glad that I got to read about it. Overall I would definitely recommend reading this book. It is super quick and fun to read!

One might by just looking at the title or cover see this book and think oh a fun book about a girl who gets to pretend to be a pop star, and they would be right.

On the surface that is what the story is about, but I was pleasantly surprised to find more. I even found myself close to tears at a touching part in the book. Close to the end of the book there was a part where I could guess what was going to happen and in my head I was saying, nope don't do it, it is too every teens fantasy for me. It did happen but that is the ending I would have wanted as a teenager so I can be happy with it since that is the target audience.

The only difference between the two is that while Kari is living the life of glamour and wealth, Alexia and her family are unglamorous and poor. So, when Alexia's enemy, Teresa, posts a mean-spirited photo of Alexia on the Internet, no one is more surprised than Alexia that it goes viral.

Soon enough, things get a little weird when Alexia gets a phone call from Reviewed by Angela S. Soon enough, things get a little weird when Alexia gets a phone call from Kari Kingsley's manager asking her if she'd like a job working as Kari's double. Who could resist the call of Hollywood over real life?

Alexia takes the job, even though her real motive is to go to Hollywood to find her father, who she never knew. While there, Alexia meets gorgeous rock star Grant Delray, who she ends up falling for. The only problem is that he thinks she is Kari. Can their relationship possibly last if he knew who she really was? It has everything a girl could want - celebrities, drama, and romance.

Thoroughly enjoyable! Jun 07, Heather rated it it was amazing Shelves: funny , young-adult. A fast and fun YA read about a girl who is hired to double for a rock star.

When a woman mistakenly believes he has proposed marriage to her, he and his valet Henry Leek hastily return to England.

    After Leek dies soon after of pneumonia, the attending doctor mistakes him for Priam and informs the press. The real Priam is glad to be mistaken for his valet by everyone, even his cousin Duncan who has not seen him since he was After several attempts to clear up the misidentification, he gives up. He goes to a hotel, where he meets Alice Chalice Lillian Gish , who was put in touch with Leek through a matrimonial agency and, by chance, was to meet Leek for the first time there.

    Leek had sent her a photograph of him and Priam together, so she makes the same mistake. Priam finds her very pleasant to be with.
