This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
As her Second Acts Dating Service truly takes off, Cynthia Amas discovers that in the heady world of high-end Hollywood romance, with success comes complexity. In this wildly seductive romp through the lush canyons and lavish neighborhoods of Los Angeles, the line between business and pleasure quickly blurs in a dizzying rush of sex and celebrity. Just as our heroine’s uncanny genius for matching up her growing roster of exclusive love seekers continues to deepen, her own love life reaches a fever pitch. Things get complicated. And funny. And excruciatingly sensual. Cynthia’s high-maintenance lovelorn mother, her maddeningly hot ex-fling Max, a long-lost high school crush, and of course her best friend, the libidinous, star-crazed Lolita and her mysterious pack of telepathic canines, are all along for the ride. Not to mention one very rich, very famous film producer. On top of everything else, her newest, most important client is literally the biggest movie star in the world. In more ways than one. When it comes to extra curriculars, he is the hardest-working stud in show business. Try as Cynthia may to hook him up with any number of gorgeous ladies in waiting, his notoriously one-track mind is set on her. She’s determined to steer the dating service to the next level, but it’s hard to focus, let alone keep your hands on the wheel, when you’re hot, bothered, and nearly driven to distraction along the steamy highways and byways of love and lust. What a way to make a living.
Sex, Love & Laughs -- A Terrific Read
A nonstop page-turner that you won't want to put down. Cynthia Amas is a lovably flawed character who has a gift for finding love for everyone but herself. After being downsized from her Hollywood studio job as a marketing executive, she decides to follow her passion (and there is plenty of it) and open her highly personalized matchmaking service -- Second Acts.
As her business takes off, her clientele includes some of LA's best and brightest. Her newest client is one of the biggest stars in Hollywood who says he is looking for a real and lasting relationship. Cynthia has to juggle this irresistible star while trying to manage life with her best friend whose three dogs are not of this world, her demanding and hilarious mother, a cad of an ex boyfriend, and an old flame that still burns in her heart.
It's not easy to balance interesting characters, humor, spicy love scenes and a terrific story, but author Julia Dumont pulls it off brilliantly.
