The Rise
Shari Low & Ross King
Publication date: September 13th 2022
Genres: Adult, Romance, Thriller

When we bury our secrets, they always come back to haunt us…
Their rise was meteoric.

Only a few years before, they had been three friends from Glasgow, just trying to survive tough lives of danger and dysfunction.
But on one Hollywood night in 1993, they were on the world’s biggest stage, accepting their Oscar in front of the watching world.
That night was the beginning of their careers. But it was also the end of their friendship.

Over the next twenty years, Mirren McLean would become one of the most powerful writers in the movie industry.
Zander Leith would break box-office records as cinema’s most in-demand action hero.
And Davie Johnson would rake in millions as producer of some of the biggest shows on TV.

For two decades they didn’t speak, driven apart by a horrific secret.
Until now…
Their past is coming back to bite them, and they have to decide whether to run, hide, or fight.
Because when you rise to the top, there’s always someone who wants to see you fall.

An exciting new glam thriller for the fans of Taylor Jenkins Reid, Liane Moriarty and Jo Spain

I received an advance review copy for free and am leaving this review voluntarily. Thank you Xpresso Book Tours. I'm excited to be a part of this tour. Now for my review ... 

The Rise is the first in the Hollywood series and it did not disappoint. In the Rise, we meet three friends whose rise to fame was meteoric and they find themselves accepting an Oscar. While this night was the first night in their careers, it was the last night of their friendship. Bound together by a horrific secret, they’ve not spoken for two decades until now. The past is catching up to them and someone wants to see them knocked off their pedestal. They have a choice to make. Will they run, hide, or fight?

I found this book to be full of drama and tension inherent in my favorite Lifetime movies or soap operas. The cast of characters are brilliantly written and realistic. They were depicted as I imagine Hollywood stars to be. With their foundational personalities well developed. I look forward to seeing how they develop as the series evolves. The plot is well executed and kept me engaged from start to finish. The descriptions were vivid, and I could see it in my imagination. I liked the writing style and am looking forward to book 2!
