Strut is a charming love story with a wonderful plot. The characters are lifelike and empathetic. The Hollywood back drop is done very well. The dialogue was great, and even the background characters were full of life. I loved how Ms DiPlacido handled the urban legend. The sex was subdued but interesting and loving. There was great sexual tension throughout the story. Applying modern catch-phrases into the plot was also a great part of the dialogue. I look forward to reading a longer book from this talented author.
