August 2009 Review for Bookpleasures
Reviewer-Michelle Kaye Malsbury, BSBM, MM
Review
Robert Rave, author of Spin, was previously a publicist based out of New York City. He has worked extensively in the field of public relations and helped pull together many high-brow events from political campaigns and fundraisers to fashion shows and nightclub openings. The vast majority of those events involved an array of entertainment personalities and/or sports professionals. This is his first novel, but I hope not his last. For more information about the author please log on to his personal web site [...].

Taylor Green and Jennie Weinstein are the two most prominent characters of Spin, but not the only two to totally captivate and entertain you. Taylor hails from the Midwest and is the product of a single parent family where his mother worked almost non-stop to keep the family going and his grandmother, Ethel, raised him.

I read a lot of chick lit, some good, some *yawn*, but this book (beyond being refreshing because it came from a male perspective), had a vibrancy to it that I couldn't resist...not that the events were so sunny and happy...hardly, sometimes they were horrifying, mortifying, soul-crushing, and though I cringed for the characters many times, I still wanted more.

The author did a great job pulling in the reader from the start. The beginning chapter actually placed the reader deep into the story.

From there every secret impulse to learn about the worlds of celebs was fulfilled. We... Read more
Spin was probably my favorite book of 2009 hands down. If you love reading US Weekly and Perez Hilton you'll absolutely get a kick out of reading Spin. It's a quick, fun read but definitely different from other novels of the "chick lit" genre. The fact that the protaganist is male sets Spin apart right away (nice change to see a male point of view). I also loved that you never know whether or not Taylor will choose the right path - even the ending leaves things a bit open.
