Hollywood is a temptress, a trickster, a soul-stealing devil. I married an A-list player, knowing I come second place to his craft. But Lucas and I are a golden couple, a modern-day fairy tale.
I’ve never doubted what we built…until the sudden death of Lucas’s best friend has scandal rocking the Hills and shaking the foundation of our relationship.
I chose Lucas as my safe haven…he chose the role of a lifetime.
For the next three months, I’ll share my nights with a stranger, watching as he buries his pain, immersed in his role and living as someone else.
We’ve done this before. I tell myself it’s just another movie, and he’ll return to me.
I should’ve known this time would be different.
To get my husband back, I’ll need the strength of ten men.
As it turns out, I’ll have to go through two.
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
I seem to be in the minority when it comes to Method. It was good, but it feel kind of short in my opinion.
I though the premise was fantastic — grieving the suicide of his best friend, Lucas is a method actor who immerses himself so deeply into his new role that he becomes completely unrecognizable to his wife and their marriage suffers as a result. But by the time I got to the epilogue, I had too many unanswered questions about Blake, the resolution between Lucas and Mila left me wanting more between them, and the scene with Blake and his ex from high school had zero impact on the outcome of the story. Did I miss the point in that scene?
Lucas’ grief over Blake’s death is intense. The way it consumes him and destroys their marriage was hard to read at times. He was the most sought-after actor, sitting at the top of the mountain, but terribly empty inside at times as a result. This story is gritty and raw, and despite the sensitive issues of self-worth, sexual harassment and mental health, it’s largely a story about trust and love and how fragile those bonds can sometimes be even in the strongest of marriages.
While Method was a gripping story — and not at all a typical romance — it just left me feeling a bit unsatisfied at the end, which is why I’m shaving off a star.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
