Review: Easy on the Eyes

I really enjoy reading Jane Porter’s novels, they are smart, fun, flirty and so much more. The women are strong characters, who own their life. This is what keeps drawing me back for more.

From the Author's website:  Jane Porter, a former English teacher, holds an MA in Writing from the University of San Francisco, and loves talking books and working with aspiring writers. Jane continues to work with writer friends all the time, developing the craft and discussing good books. For more on the craft of writing, check out Jane's workshop descriptions.

Quick Take: This book surprised me – in a good way. Not only does Jane deliver another solid book but she weaves philanthropy into the story bringing exposure to a must needed organization. This book warmed my heart. I can’t wait to discuss it with her in the next few weeks. I will post again after the discussion.

With so many of my must read authors releasing books this fall I have been trying to slowly read their books, knowing that I will have to wait at least a year for another book to be released. I didn’t plan to read Easy on the Eyes this week until I read that Jane is hosting an online book discussion. Click here for more information, the call was postponed so it’s not too late to join us!

Easy on the Eyes is the story about Tiana, a TV anchor in her late 30’s who has been told she should consider plastic surgery. With a younger co-anchor waiting in the wings Tiana is forced to re-evaluate her options knowing that management would like to add the younger anchor to the show to boost ratings. In addition to dealing with career decisions (should she hold true to her values), Tiana must come to terms with some personal baggage she has been holding on to, she’s attracted to someone she thinks is all wrong for her and some life changing decisions need to be made soon.

Synopsis:At 38, Tiana Tomlinson has made it. America adores her as one of the anchors of America Tonight, a top-rated nightly entertainment and news program. But even with the trappings that come with her elite lifestyle, she feels empty. Tina desperately misses her late husband Keith, who died several years before. And in a business that thrives on youth, Tina is getting the message that her age is starting to show and certain measures must be taken if she wants to remain in the spotlight. It doesn't help that at every turn she has to deal with her adversary—the devilishly handsome, plastic surgeon to the stars, Michael Sullivan. But a trip away from the Hollywood madness has consequences that could affect the rest of her life.
