The Fifteenth Minute by Sarina Bowen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Freshman/actress Lianne Challice attends Harkness College in hopes of becoming a normal college student. She meets the DJ of the hockey team, Daniel "DJ" Trevi, and becomes smitten. Unfortunately, DJ is having some issues that may force him to leave Harkness.
I loved The Fifteenth Minute. Once again, Sarina Bowen did a fantastic job writing a successful plot with a sensitive topic.
My heart went out to DJ. I enjoyed hearing a story from the perspective of someone that was wrongly accused of a crime. This is something that happened in real life. No one in cases like these, comes out the winner. Daniel is a great guy, and it was unfortunate that he had to go through what he did. I am glad that he meets Lianne. They are good for one another.
Lianne is a likeable character. I felt bad that she was disliked by many people because she is famous. I had respect for the people like Bella and DJ who got to know her and gave her a chance at a real friendship, something Lianne did not have many of in her life. She is a sweet person, especially considering her background.
I love the music selection for the hockey games. I am the team manager for my son’s travel hockey team, and it gave me some great suggestions for songs to play during a game. I had to laugh because the “old” songs were popular when I was in college and yes, they are old.
The Fifteenth Minute can be read as a standalone, but I think the reader would appreciate the secondary characters more having read about them in previous books. Sarina Bowen’s character development is outstanding. I love Sarina Bowen’s The Ivy Years. They are believable stories with tons of substance. I cannot wait for the next story.
