PDF - Glitter Baby
She stepped over Frank LaPorte as she carried the telephone into a closet to call the lobby and tell them to put guards back on the elevators. When she came out, she saw that Barry had left with some of the women, and she decided it was safe to return to her room. But she was wide-awake now, tomorrow was a layover day, and she deserved a little fun—or at least a drink before she turned in.
After a short struggle with a cork, she poured several inches of champagne into a glass. Peter called her over to talk about OPEC, much to the disgust of the girls who were clamoring for his attention. Just as she began her second glass of champagne, she heard a furious pounding on the door. Groaning, she set down her glass and walked across the suite.
She released the lock and pulled open the door. Kissy Sue Christie tumbled into the room. She looked like a rumpled sugarplum. She had short licorice curls, a candy apple mouth, and big gumdrop eyes. She wore black leather pants and an electric pink camisole with a broken strap. Except for a generous spill of breasts, everything about her was tiny. It was also vaguely lopsided, since she was missing one high-heeled shoe, but even lopsided, Kissy Sue Christie looked exactly the way Fleur had always wanted to look.
Kissy threw the bolt on the door and began her own inspection. I would have been here earlier, but I was unexpectedly delayed. She had an urge to tuck Kissy in her pocket.
The only unoccupied space was the bathroom, so she locked them both in and took a seat on the floor. While she poured the champagne, Kissy kicked off her remaining shoe. I might as well tell you from the start—I have a little bitty problem with promiscuity.
Kind of neutral, you know what I mean?
It felt good to laugh again. Miss America. My mommy and daddy raised me from the cradle to go to Atlantic City. I won Miss South Carolina without any trouble. But the night before the Miss America pageant, I committed an indiscretion. Both judges. Not at the same time, of course.
Well, not exactly. One was a United States senator and the other was a tight end for the Dallas Cowboys. I tell you, to this very day it annoys me. I got kicked out, but they both stayed on. Now does that seem proper to you? Men like that being judges in the greatest beauty pageant in the world? I was on my way back to Charleston when I met this truck driver who looked like John Travolta.
Among other things, I was born to do Tennessee Williams. Sometimes I think he wrote those crazy women just for me. Fleur noticed their bottle was empty so she went on a scouting mission. When she returned with a fresh bottle, the bathroom was empty. I think it was Frank, who is a base pig, in my opinion. Kissy tucked several wayward licorice curls behind her ear and looked at Fleur thoughtfully. Are we friends or not?

This is a lifelong friendship being formed right now. Then she looked Fleur straight in the eye and held the bottle out to her. Fleur thought about all the secrets locked inside her for so long. All she had to show for the past three years—nearly three and a half—was an eclectic university education. Kissy was offering her a way out.
Slowly she reached for the bottle and took a long swallow. Kissy curled up on one of the double beds while Fleur propped herself against the headboard of the other. She kept the champagne bottle that was helping her through the story balanced on her chest.
Kissy occasionally interrupted with pithy, one-word character assassinations of the people involved, but Fleur remained almost detached. Champagne definitely helped, she decided, when you were spilling your sordid secrets. If you live with it long enough, even high tragedy gets to be mundane.
We must have performed that play for every high school in the state. He loses everything. Then he achieves a catharsis, a cleansing through his suffering. You had high stature, and you sure have been brought down.
Kissy thought for a moment. Kissy opened it and emitted a loud squeal. Simon Kale, Fleur discovered, was a classically trained musician and as menacing as Santa Claus. He laughed as he wiped one corner of his mouth with his napkin. All designs are only editable by Ellison Reed. Designs sold are NOT editable files. What comes with the printed invitation option?

But be I am not a fan of re-issued romances. But be warned that it is very different from her usual modern style. It seems to me more like the old Judith Krantz books or maybe Danielle Steel???
View 1 comment. How the heck is this supposed to be part of the "Wynette, Texas" series? There's no Wynette in it. There's no hint of the previous couples. It was written before any of the others, as well. I have to believe that is a mistake and since being part of the series is why I read this bomb I feel more than a little cheated. Turns out Fleur and Jake are parents to a lead in a book later in the series. So anyway, the biggest problem with this book is the awful people at the heart of it.
And How the heck is this supposed to be part of the "Wynette, Texas" series? And while I don't mean Fleur and Jake, you still see way, way, very much way too much of Alexi and Belinda. Worse, SEP seems enamored of the selfish idiot Belinda so we get to spend whole sections including the stupidest epilogue of any of her books so far from her PoV.
Alexi is an obnoxious sexual predator who practically spends the novel rubbing his hands together, cackling while hatching his zany plots. That he actually manages to vex Fleur was pure authorial fiat and having him drive so much of the plot grated on me like, uh, a grater.
Belinda is a manipulative moron who displaces her worst narcissistic fantasies on movie stars and whose success depends entirely on authorial intrusion and the conceit that a middle-aged one-time beauty can have her pick of celebrity trysts despite decades of dissipation. These people were awful, but SEP also spreads this story out over decades of time so we get to watch poor Fleur wander around a plot that could have been mapped out by following an ADD kid hopped up on sugar and let loose in Santa's electronics warehouse.
Which means she spends half the book and half a decade nowhere near Jake as she runs around Europe finding herself. Or losing herself. Both, really. SEP is talented enough that it's not boring. Except in retrospect. I made it to the end because, uh. I don't know why, now I think on it. She threw enough secondary characters at the reader that I suppose I just got distracted.
So the book isn't a dead loss, I suppose. Still, I'd definitely give it a pass if I had it to do over. A note about Steamy: I dunno. There was explicit sex. I find I don't care and I lost count.
Not that it was tons. Middle of my steam tolerance, tops. I just can't be arsed to go into it. It doesn't help that Jake's a selfish idiot and his emotional constipation completely undermined most of the intimacy in the story. Seriously, the man's a trainwreck and Fleur would have been better off romancing fire hydrants. Or boxcars. You know, things more likely to be emotionally open and reliably honest. You know you are in the hands of a good writer when time suspends, the story is so real you find yourself lost in it, and the characters are three dimensional enough that you truly CARE what happens to them.
Susan Elizabeth Phillips is a goddess of romance for these very reasons! Glitter Baby, although it is an earlier work of hers, still has all the elements that make SEP so unique and addicting!
It is unlike lots of her newer work that foc You know you are in the hands of a good writer when time suspends, the story is so real you find yourself lost in it, and the characters are three dimensional enough that you truly CARE what happens to them.
It is unlike lots of her newer work that focuses mainly on romance.
This is a "coming of age" story. This is the story of Fleur Savagar. If I had a vote for "the most unfortunate child of derelict parents".. Fleur would get my vote hands down! Fleur's mother is, to put it kindly, a flake! She is obsessed with Hollywood, and lives in an almost fairytale world of make believe with actors being the kings and queens.
She will do anything to be in the company of stars.
Fleur's "dad" is also a really big problem Combine these two people and Fleur's only saving grace is that she was forced out of her home and raised in a convent! Fleur is a pawn in her parent's twisted lives, obsessions, and desires. Fleur is not interested in these occupations, but both allow her mother to be in the "limelight" with beautiful, and more importantly, FAMOUS people.
Fleur, still dealing with her abandonment issues, wants to make her mom happy and agrees to a life she does not want. Jake Koranda is one of the "yummiest" hero's I've read in a long time. He is funny and yet deep. He's tortured, but not too much so He and Fleur are destined and meant for each other The best part of this book is watching Fleur's coming of age and her learning how to become her own person. It's painful to watch, but isn't life like that sometimes.
This book is very hard to put down It is funny, heartwrenching, and by far the best book I've read in a long time. You'll laugh through your tears He tenido la oportunidad de leerla gracias a Ediciones B.
Es la hora de las confesiones: Con SEP la vida es un viaje apasionante. Y esta novela es justo eso. Y a la vez, no lo suficientemente bueno. No he llorado ni una sola vez. A mi tristemente, me ha dejado casi indiferente. No era la historia de amor que yo buscaba.
SEP me tiene muy acostumbrada a preciosas historias de amor, a libros mimados al detalle, y con Una chica brillante no lo hizo.
Pero seguro que no le olvido, porque, gusten mucho o gusten por los pelos como en este caso , SEP siempre crea obras que no se olvidan, punto. First let me say that I'm a big SEP fan. I almost always enjoy her characters. She has creative plot lines and snappy dialog. So what would one of her earlier books be like? Let's travel all the way back to , when hair was big and portable phones required a five pound battery. Although that was the original publish date, it wasn't the date of the book setting.
Our story begins when a stupid obnoxious twit changes her name to Belinda and runs away to Hollywood to fall in love with the stars. Belinda shows herself throughout the book to be petty, weak minded, vindictive, uncaring, untalented, manipulative, and a total slut to boot.
Let's just say that Belinda will not be making any parent of the year lists. And as bad as Belinda, our heroine's mother is, her 'father' is much worse. An inordinate amount of time is spent on the past and in backstory.
While this may annoy some, I like the way that it sets the stage and gives most of the character's motivations. When Fleur Savager, our actual heroine, does something, we can all look at her past and know where she's coming from. And boy does she have places to come from. I thought the story took awhile to get anywhere.
I thought it was dated. I thought a couple of the characters were a little too evil to be believed. I didn't believe a couple of plot devices. And yet I really enjoyed this book.
More complicated than the usual romance novel. Better written too. Mixed review. Keep in mind that this story was written I believe in the mid to late 80's, so it's a bit dated. I really wish they would have made some updates before re-releasing it, because part of this story had a bit of an "ick factor" in it for me. Loved the story of Fleur and Jake and thought it was great. Very, very touching story. Loved the telling of the feelings about Vietnam and the emotional baggage that often results by being in war.
I loved both characters and it was great to see Fle Mixed review. I loved both characters and it was great to see Fleur fall and rise A strong character.

Also loved her actress friend Kissy and her charming, talented, gay brother Michelle. Both were very strong characters and added much to the story. Now to Fleur's mother, father and step-father. All the biggest form of scum on the planet in my opinion. While I think that was the point, I think the point could have been made in a different way than to have both her father and stepfather be really phedofiles This was complete ick and changed what might have been a 4 or 5 star book to barely a 3.
I understand that her mother was 19, but the men were nearly 40 and over 50 and it was mentioned that they had been with teenagers Jul 04, Kimberly Nicole rated it it was amazing Shelves: Get ready for a blast into the past of old Hollywood! Lots of back story, but all relevant information!
Without being trapped in Belinda's mind for a while you may never understand her motives. Her actions and thought process will make you want to hurling your kindle across the room. Officially the award for worst mother of the year: Belinda Savard! And Alexi was thirty shades of f'd up. A man of your nightmares. I love the Wynette series, the way the stories blend together is seamless Get ready for a blast into the past of old Hollywood!
I love the Wynette series, the way the stories blend together is seamless.I thought a couple of the characters were a little too evil to be believed. It baffles my mind… the creative imaginations of some of these authors we read. What would she do then? View all 12 comments. She was afraid somebody would get killed. Theresa I think it's because a new character at the very end of this book is in a future book with a secondary character from Fancy Pants.
