This is going to be a quick one. I’m glad I decided to listen to the audio instead of reading the actual book. I wasn’t a huge fan of the plot and found myself getting bored more often than not.
So this is about Anna Gardner. A woman with fam who is trying to get noticed more for a role that she wants. She ends up meeting Ben and eventually they end up being intimate. Eventually they decide to fake date so that it would be all over the media and hopefully help Anna get this role. But of course, they grow to have real feelings for each other & fall in love.
For me, the romance seemed more forced than real & maybe that’s why I just couldn’t connect or fall in love with this story line. It was almost as if Anna used him for publicity and then felt obligated to date him because of what he did for her. While that isn’t how the storyline played out, that’s how it came off to me.
If this is your first or second Jasmine Guillory book, you may really enjoy this. I don’t think this is a bad read, but since I have read all 6 books, it’s kind of redundant for me which may be why I found myself bored at times. This was the book that initially made me want to read the series to begin with and a part of the reason why I read all of them pretty much right after each other.
If you are just now bumping into this series, you can read these books in any order you choose. Even with the few crossovers between books, it doesn’t matter what order you read them. I actually appreciate that Guillory does the crossovers sometimes.
