After years of struggling in the Chicago theater scene, ambitious actress Kira Rascher finally lands the role of a lifetime. The catch? Starring in Temper means working with Malcolm Mercer, a mercurial director who's known for pushing his performers past their limits--onstage and off. Kira's convinced she can handle Malcolm, but the theater's cofounder Joanna Cuyler is another story. Joanna sees Kira as a threat--to her own thwarted artistic aspirations, her twisted relationship with Malcolm, and the shocking secret she's keeping about the upcoming production. But as opening night draws near, Kira and Joanna both start to realize that Malcolm's dangerous extremes are nothing compared to what they're capable of themselves. An edgy, addictive, and fiendishly clever tale of ambition, deceit, and power, Temper is a timely, heart-in-your-throat psychological thriller that will leave you breathless.-- Publisher's description.

Two horrible women fight over a narcissistic man neither really wants. I kept thinking through the whole book that it was written about the author's college roommate (an acting student having an affair with a male drama professor) and a female English professor she hated (and who was married to a womanizer). I haven't seen a "real wives" of anyplace episode, just the ads, but I imagine that people who enjoy them might like this story.

"Holy cow."

That was my thought right after finishing this book. It was one wild ride from beginning to end, and I loved how the author every so often would throw in a curveball and I would immediately be like, "Wait... what??!"

There are 90+ chapters in this book, but don't let that scare you away -- they are very short, so the novel goes quickly. If you are interested in all the ins and outs of theatre, and transforming into a character that someone else has written, you will really like this one. This story was crafted extremely well, it's very clever.

This was a thriller I enjoyed reading, and I can't wait to see what the author comes up with next. Consider me a fan!
