When costume designer Josie Bane first lays eyes on Anders Ellis, she hates him instantly. Conceited and arrogant, he’s the epitome of a Hollywood playboy. So it’s much to Josie’s dismay when he becomes the star of her sexual fantasies.
Never expecting to see him again, she gives in to her desires for a night she’ll never forget. However, Josie soon learns that life is full of surprises. When their paths cross again, sparks fly. With three little words, Anders changes everything.
He’s after one thing.
She refuses to give it to him… again.
When Josie realizes she’s falling for a man that will never let her in but refuses to let her go, she must decide if the risk is worth the reward.
With a relationship shrouded in secrets and outside forces poised to tear them apart, did they ever stand a chance? Before the smoke clears and the curtain falls, Josie and Anders must distinguish between what’s fact and what’s fiction in a place where the truth is never black and white.
Loved Josie (Ivy) and Anders. OH the angst in this book. The back and forth. How I wanted to stab Aubrey!
Life in Hollywood isn’t always as it seems and because of that it’s hard to live a life that’s truly yours. Anders is one of the “IT” actors in Hollywood and after working on a film with MR. Sexy…Josie has her sights set on him. She knows it will never be anything than a one night stand. And her plans play off without a hitch. That is until her new film and Mr. Sexy is back. The only problem…he doesn’t remember her. Josie knew not to expect more, but why was she even the least bit hurt by his forgetfulness?
Anders is on a mission to get “IVY” aka Josie back in his bed. No one says no to him…he never beds a girl more than once, but Josie has him fuming…why doesn’t she just fall back in bed with him?
Anders and Josie are constantly fighting, the polar opposites of each other and perfect together. But Josie is having a hard time getting by being Anders’ secret girlfriend and Anders is having a hard time letting go of a relationship that turned bad. Add a fiesty co-star who is set on being the girl to finally tame the playboy (and because Josie is a secret – doesn’t know he is well on his way).
Fun secondary characters (Madison the BFF, Holden the brother and Owen his BFF). This made for a fun read. But be ready to throw your kindle or yell at them to “WAKE UP!” As frustrating as they could be at times…believe me, I worked in the business, this is about as true to life as you get for Hollywood.
A great debut novel from Olivia Evans. Can’t wait to read more from her
“Totally weird. You’re such a freak.” Her tone was playful, but the strain in her voice and the softness in her eyes showed her true feelings.
