Now available in eBook, USA TODAY bestselling author Alice Clayton’s debut novel is a playful and erotic romance between an aspiring actress and Hollywood’s hottest new leading man.
When Grace Sheridan returns to Los Angeles to become a working actress, it’s a second shot at a life-long dream. With some help from her best-friend agent, will that dream become a reality—or at thirty-three, has Grace missed her chance at the big time? And when an unexpected sizzling romance with Jack Hamilton, the entertainment industry's newest “it” boy, threatens to shine an uncomfortable spotlight on her life, how will that affect her career…and his?
Funny, borderline neurotic Grace is perfect in her imperfections, and the sexual chemistry between her and charming yet blissfully unaware Jack is off the charts. With laugh-out-loud dialogue and a super-steamy romance that will get your heart racing, sneaking around in L.A. and dodging the paparazzi has never been so fun.
Not my personal cup of tea
I really enjoyed Wallbanger so I thought I'd give this story a try even though the premise didn't really interest me (Wallbanger was so funny I literally laughed out loud, very few writers are that good in my opinion). Unfortunately this book is not at all stand alone; generally a novel has some sort of problem that the story develops and then solves at the end, this has none of that. These two people meet and start messing around because they seem to get one another instantly. Even the minor "problems" of their 9 year age difference and his fame aren't issues in this story (nor is she at all self conscious about her weight, it seemed to me, though it's mentioned in all the summaries for this series). Then, in what seems like just 2 or 3 weeks the story is over and they're still in a relationship, it's just long distance. Some problems, I assume, that arise later in the series--her BFF/manager/ boyfriend's manager strikes me as probably going to create a riff by prioritizing work over relationships and her old friend Michael and his old "friend" Marcia are going to become minor problems. I really don't think these things are worth 3 whole books. Furthermore, the humor and writing I so loved in Wallbanger is totally missing here--the writing is trying awfully hard to be clever and the humor is really immature. I just didn't enjoy the writing, the characters or the way she's structured this story and series. But, this is my preference and since I lived Wallbanger I'll give it 3 stars instead of 2.
Can not get enough of this book, on my way to book two and sooooo ready for book three..... I haven't laughed out loud reading a book in so long, this is what I needed and I loved it!!
Cannot get enough!
I absolutely love this book! Could not put it down. I am constantly laughing and the love scenes are pretty steamy too! I've fallen in love with Grace and Jack and cannot get enough of this series! Definite page turner!
