One picture. One tabloid. Two lives changed forever.
Finian Alexander is one scandalous tabloid photo away from catapulting his acting career onto the A-list. All his bad boy persona needs is an agreeable member of the paparazzi to give him a friendly boost. But vacationing out in the middle of nowhere, the only photographer he knows is way too scrupulous for her own good.
Or is she?
Hailey Summer is desperate for cash—so desperate that she's willing to do just about anything with her photography skills to save her family's cottage and keep her secrets hidden from her sisters. So when sexy, arrogant movie star Finian makes her an offer, Hailey can't resist. But does his proposition take things too far? And when their plans begin to unravel, will Finian and Hailey find the limelight too blinding?

A very enjoyable story, part of a series but is a standalone.
This is the first book I’ve read by Jean Oram. Love and Rumors is a great start to a series that I plan to read more of.
The blurb is pretty accurate so I won’t restate the story here. I would say, though, that I wouldn’t call this a “billionaire” romance – at least not what I think of as a typical one. Finian came from very humble roots and, even though he is a movie star, nothing about him says billionaire to me in the story. I mention this only because I know some readers are getting tired of the billionaire thing and I wouldn’t want someone to miss a good story.
Finian and Hailey dance around each other throughout a lot of the book. They don’t communicate with each other very well at most times but the chemistry between them is hot. They both have secrets that they don’t want the other to find out about. Their path to an HEA isn’t smooth but they do get there.
Characters a bit immature
Scenery descriptions et al are good. However, the characters are a bit immature and not quite believable. At turns thoughtful, at turns almost to take off for an exhilarating scene. Then back to silly immature reasonings for their actions. it seems the author is a pantser and not a plotter...
