On the verge of losing the Malibu home she inherited from her great-aunt, Addi Dekker is completely failing to prove to her family she can make it as a writer. Not exactly how a girl proves her independence. If she doesn’t want to give up her dream and go back to the soul-sucking job she just left, Addi has to swallow her dislike of Hollywood and rent the house out to the sexy-as-hell film producer.
And maybe (shhhh!) save money by secretly living there, too.
Roque Gallagher is pouring his heart and savings into his first independent film to make the industry acknowledge him for his talent and not just his family name. Addi’s home is perfect for the shoot, but she’s far too tempting. He’s never been able to handle work and a relationship, and this is the film of a lifetime. Between a shrinking budget and his director quitting, the last thing he needs is a sexy-as-sin tease like Addi. And he has a feeling there's something she's hiding...
This was a hard book to like, primarily because I found the Addi’s behaviour – the main character – deceitful and selfish and so extremely unlikeable from the start, with her head so far up in the clouds or up her arse that she’d stoop to anything to get her dream fulfilled. Unfortunately, this was enough to tank the book’s potential for me and very soon, I couldn’t muster up enough enthusiasm for a heroine, who, for all purposes, wormed herself into my bad books without much trying. Perhaps this will be someone else’s cup of tea, but it isn’t mine.
