Author Jen Malone draws on her real-life experiences as a movie studio publicist to bring you an insider peek at love, Hollywood-style.
The California dream was supposed to give seventeen-year-old Annie Shelton a fresh start far removed from her dad’s unusual betrayal. But when things don’t go according to plan in La La Land, Annie’s mom snags a last-minute gig as makeup artist to a teen movie idol and finagles a spot for her daughter on his European promotional tour.
Down-to-earth Annie would rather fangirl architectural sights than an arrogant A-lister. That is, until behind-the-scenes Graham Cabot turns out to be more sweetly vulnerable than she could have imagined.
Too bad falling for a poster boy isn’t all red carpets and star treatment, especially when you factor in obnoxious fans, an overprotective assistant, a stage mom/manager, and a beefy bodyguard.
But it isn’t until the paparazzi make an appearance that things get really sticky…
I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange of a review. No compensation in any form was received for the review of this book.
This book was such a quick, enjoyable read and I was able to read it in one sitting.
The book is about Annie Shelton, who had her life thrown into the Hollywood life with her mom. She met teen actor, Graham Cabot and her ordinary life spiraled into something not so ordinary as the paparazzi and heaps of fangirls came at their tails.
Okay, so I have to admit I gave this book a lot of eyerolls. I’m not a big fan of instalove but I was able to tolerate it with this book. There’s chemistry between Graham and Annie, I’ll give you that, but I hoped it wasn’t forced into an instant one.
Are you so deep into your world of make-believe that you can’t see what you’re getting yourself into?
Annie was an easy character to get into but yeah, the insta-attraction part of her, I wasn’t really fond of. Graham, was harder, because he’s so fricking confusing and he acts immature most of the time. So yeah, those were the things I didn’t really like about the book.
Overall, this book was still enjoyable. It was fun having a glimpse of how Hollywood works. It’s also a quick, fun and light read so if you’re looking for that kind of book, I recommend you this one.
