I freely admit that I love romances that take place in Hollywood or have a (fictional) famous actor in them. There’s just something about them that call to me. Maybe it’s all the crushes I had on my favorite actors as a kid. ;)
But whatever the reason, I do love them. So when I first saw this book, I knew I had to read it. I wasn’t the least disappointed. I loved every moment of it.
I found it intriguing, right off the bat. Four and a half years later, and Leah is still dealing with the fallout of the sex tapes that were leaked to the media. She found a way to turn an all-around bad situation into something positive and she was able to carve out a life for herself. But she was still being haunted and taunted by it.
On the flipside, you have Kevin. His life seems to have taken off. He’s Hollywood’s golden boy. His career didn’t suffer from the sex tapes. Everyone jumped to his defense and thought Leah was after fame and just using him. He’s the poor guy that had the misfortune to fall in love with her. So color me surprised to find out that Kevin was not responsible for the release of the sex tapes. He assumed (along with everyone else in the world) that Leah was responsible.
So I now had a “Who-Done-It” on my hands. I had my suspicions (and I was right) but I won’t give it away because finding out was part of the fun.
As much as I liked Leah, I loved being in Kevin’s head. She was so bitter and sure that Kevin was the spawn of the Devil that she just couldn’t let go to really see/feel what Kevin’s feelings. But Kevin, even when he thought Leah was responsible, he still loved her. He was so sure of his feelings and at the first chance, he grabbed the second chance with both hands.
My only complaint (and it's not really a complaint) is that I wish there had been an epilogue that was set in the future to see what Kevin & Leah's life was like. But that's just me because I wanted more and wasn't ready for the book to be over. :)
This is definitely a must read book. And I can’t wait to read more from Noelle Adams.
