overview
After another all-night bender, one more failed stint at rehab, and a parole violation, self-destructive actress Chase London has to deal with her demons. She’s been written off as a Hollywood casualty by almost everyone, including her own mother. But handsome superstar Spencer Rome has her back. So does an uncompromising stranger determined to start Chase at square one and help her pull her future into focus. If Chase is willing.
Life coach Olivia Han is devoted to “adulating” boot camp therapy. It’s not just her professional specialty, though—it’s also one way to avoid focusing on building a life of her own. To escape the pressures of Tinseltown, the two women head to Olivia’s cabin in the wilds of Northern California. There they discover a place in need of TLC. As they work together to rehab the once-charming cabin, they create a refuge where Chase can come to terms with her unsettled past, and where Olivia has an unexpected reckoning with her own troubling history.
For two women doing damage control, this is a time for second chances—in life, in finding love, in forgiving family, and in an emerging friendship that might be exactly what each of them needs to heal.

Adulting is a nice romance novel about growing up and figuring out life. Chase is an actress who is on her last chance with the law. She has had many failed attempts with rehab and she has violated her parole. Due to all of the negative attention, no one in Hollywood really wants to work with her. However, there is one person who is willing to work with her for his next movie, Conrad Santos. Because Chase needs to get clean, he decides to put her in contact with one of his old friends, Olivia. Olivia is a therapist and wants no parts in having Chase as a patient, but she ends up doing it.

It was pretty interesting seeing Chase learn to be an adult. You really get an insight to how being in the spotlight and in Hollywood can really take a toll on some people. It isn’t all sunshine and rainbows like many people think. There are mentions on sexual assault and addiction, so if those are triggers for you this may not be the book for you.

My Rating:

4 star
