Revell blog tour stop for The Director's Cut by Janice Thompson

About the book:

Tia Morales is used to calling the shots. She's the director of the popular sitcom Stars Collide, and her life on set is calculated and orderly. Well, most of the time. But her life outside the studio is another matter. If only she could get her family to behave as well as her stars do When she starts butting heads with handsome camera operator Jason Harris, it's enough to send a girl over the edge. Will she ever learn to let go and take life--and love--as it comes? 

My review:

I enjoy reading books about people who are control freaks to begin with, but they eventually learn to relax and enjoy life more due to situations beyond their control. God puts me in regular situations like this, and though hard at first, I learn to accept the challenges over time. Tia's life is a great example of this scenario. Her residual shame from her upbringing tends to filter through the cracks in her heavily guarded walls, and the shame often distorts her perception of life and how she deal with things. She often feels the need to bail her family out whenever situation they are stuck in. The heroine, Tia, is majorly codependent. Despite her grumpiness, Tia is a likable character and I couldn't help enjoying the scenes where Jason shows up and provides support and encouragement. It was a delight to see him in action. The conflict and petty jealousies were believable and so was the flirtatious sister. This was all done very well.

Tia was a tough cookie, but she had a soft interior and Jason was the perfect man to bring that out. He was a great hero to the point where he was almost too amazing, but I still liked him a lot. Every woman wants a Jason in their lives, right? I was totally feeling the love on the set and enjoyed the few surprises that came with Brock's reappearance, too. And then when Tia's sister turned her life around, I was thrilled. The best part of this book was probably the fact that Tia had to come to grips with the fact that she couldn't control everything, and that sometimes letting go was the best thing a person could do. It certainly adds a few more years to your life. The ending was heart-warming, too. I really enjoyed this series.
