Synopsis: Aubrey Evans is living every author’s dream; her sizzling romance novel is being turned into a blockbuster film. She would be celebrating this momentous event, if she wasn’t busy fighting over every tiny production detail with the maddeningly cavalier director, Kole Camden. 

When news of their heated rivalry hits the gossip columns, drastic measures must be taken to save their sinking project. In an elaborate PR hoax, she is publicly linked to Greyson Meyers, the swoon-worthy star of her movie. A whirl-wind love affair is staged for the couple to mirror the steamy chapters of her own books. 

Can the introverted author resist the charms of Hollywood’s sexiest leading man? Or will love find her in the City of Angels?

My Review: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I finished this book in less than 24 hours, in fact, I was glued to it for a total of about 4 hours. Yes… glued to it. This is a great book. I loved the way the author brought Aubrey to life as this author who is very over-protective (and rightly so) of her characters that are being brought to life on the big screen.  Some of the scenes that expressed this were so funny, I found myself laughing out loud (thank God I didn’t read this at work, they would be convinced of my lack of sanity).
The romance between Kole and Aubrey was a little understated in my opinion. Most of the time, I really wasn’t sure if she wasn’t going to run off with the leading man, and Kole kept everything he was feeling pretty well under wraps. I would have liked to see a little more tension between Kole and Aubrey, less between Aubrey and Greyson.

Overall though, this was a great, fast-paced romance that really kept me hooked into reading the book.
