NOTICE: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
A deliciously fun rom com about a girl who has big dreams and just can't stop herself from falling in love.Shayna is this close to getting her dream job as a location manager for a new TV soap, she just needs to find the right house to film it in, and the job is hers.Luckily, she's found the perfect place. Unluckily, the owner - who is tall, blond and more handsome than is fair - is stubbornly refusing to let her use it unless she goes to dinner with him. No harm in that, right?Lachlan swore he'd never go back into show business - not after his heart was broken - and the last thing he wants is a film crew traipsing through his house, but there's something about Shayna that's making it hard to say no . . .He won't let anyone near his heart, and she's not looking for love - what could possibly go wrong?
I love books about film and theatre because I'm an actor, myself. It's always fun for me to read about the entertainment industry. Throw in some romance, and I'm a sucker!
This was a quick, light read. There wasn't a lot of substance to it, and although the heroine, Shayna, had depth to her character, I never really got a feel for Lachlan. I was never quite sure what drew Shayna to him other than some words on a page, telling me that he was cute and sexy. He had no unique quirks or personality points that made me take notice of him. As the book was mostly relationship-driven, I can't say that it appealed to me all that much. That said, it flowed nicely and the writing was excellent. I gave it 3 stars only because I was left wanting more as I read the book and not in a "Please write a sequel so that I can have more of these characters" kind of way.
