Tara’s life has not gone the way she thought it would: she had big plans for university, and a career, but instead, at thirty-two she’s a community college drop-out, married to a washed-up high school athlete, and working in a dead-end retail sales job. She’s doing everything she can to make her life better, but it seems that the world – especially her husband – is out to get her.
She can pinpoint the moment that everything in her life changed: it was when she fell in love with Aidan Forrest – who just happened to be a part of the biggest boy band in the world, Idol Hands. In a relationship that always had to be a closely-guarded secret, she spent two years hiding from the media to protect his career, until he broke up with her, and broke her heart in the process, leaving behind a secret that Tara has never shared.
When she sees Aidan on a television documentary about the now-defunct band, saying that breaking up with her was a mistake, and that he still loves her, she makes a life-changing, spur-of-the-moment decision that will change her life, and the lives of everyone around her.
Written in a diary-format, Idol Hands is a psychological journey with a twist that leaves readers thinking.
“I would recommend this book. In fact, I’m going to add it to my Favorites List! It had me literally squealing and slapping my head at the end. I was eating up the last chapters, frantically scanning the pages and trying to figure out what really happened.” – ChickLit Plus
” I was highly entertained, intrigued and held in suspense, never able to guess what would happen next. It tackles serious issues and makes the reader think. If you read this expecting a typical romantic comedy, expect to have your mind blown.” – Change the Word
“How do you write a review for a book that left you completely mind blown? How do you tell someone how much you liked a book when your jaw is on the floor but your mind is so blown that you forget how to pick your jaw back up?” – Book Drunkard
“It is difficult to review this book without giving away some serious spoilers, but let’s just say that this is not the innocent little love story I thought it was going to be.”
“The strong first-person narrative draws the reader into Tara’s world through her emotional struggles, disappointments and joys. Her present life seems so ordinary (if frustrating and difficult) and yet her journey is so extraordinary.”
“From the diary entry format to the surprising twist at the end that makes me want to go back and read it again with a different point of view. It’s a book that peaks your curiosity just enough to not want to put it down.”
“WOW fantastic, when you read it you totally can feel and see it 🙂 bravo!!”
“I love when you read a book and in the process of reading it, it becomes a totally different story than what you thought it was going to be and that story captivates you in a way you did not anticipate, making it impossible to put down, makes you gasp and leaves you blown away, sitting in stunned silence when you get to the final page.”
