The Hollywood Story I Never Knew I Needed...
Reviewed in the United States on March 11, 2020
I’ve enjoyed every Max Monroe book I’ve ever read and I’ve read pretty much all of them. When I heard we were getting some new words, I just couldn’t wait and thankfully I didn’t have to for long. This book did not disappoint. There was so much tension from their first meeting; I think the pages were vibrating. Or maybe that was just Billie. I guess if I was confronted by a beautiful, naked, built, angry man (did I mention he wasn’t wearing any clothes?), I’d be a little jittery, too.
Luca Weaver was Hollywood’s Baddest Boy until he walked off a movie set and disappeared from the world 8 years ago. Before he flew the coop, Luca was a household name. He was in the biggest movies. Went to the best parties. Knew all the right people. Until enough was enough and he had to change his life or he wouldn’t have a life anymore.
Billie Harris is working as a Production Assistant in Hollywood, working for a producer who has the hottest new script in town. Billie offered up Luca as the male lead, like she was a personal friend, instead of just a girl who had a crush on an actor when she was younger. Now all she had to do was find him, get him to read the script and agree to come back to Hollywood. Easier said than done, even if she had overheard his Agent mention his name while she was at lunch the day before.
Off the grid Billie goes to find her Hollywood Leading Man. And when she finds him, he is not too happy to see her, especially since he has no idea who she is or what she wants. I love the give and take between Luca and Billie. They’re both stubborn, hard-headed and think their way is the right way. The chemistry is insane, almost as insane as the trek through the forest that Billie follows Luca on so she can try to wear him down.
I can definitely say this is one of my favorite Max Monroe books. Maybe it’s because of the plotline, or the fact that the female lead is a sarcastic, loudmouth, loves her sister, type of chick I hope to be if I ever grow up. They are just perfect together, but first they need to figure that out for themselves before they both blow it. What a great read!
