A-List Temptation (Bad Boys of Hollywood)
Can true love exist between Hollywood royalty and a below-the-line nobody?
Hollywood makeup artist Dina Jacobs desperately needs an escape from the LA hustle, with its flimsy relationships, constant back-stabbing, and endless ladder climbing. She hopes taking a job on an indie-shoot halfway across the country might be just what she needs. The slow, small-town pace of lovely Devina would be perfect, except for one thing – the director of the this little indie project is none other than A-list actor, and prolific Lothario – Will Derry.
Forced to work closely with a man she’s had a fantasy crush on for years, Dina soon realizes that there’s more to the Hollywood icon than just his looks and bad-boy reputation. To her shock the celebrity bachelor seems to be more focused on her than he does the work in front of him and his camera. Will’s attentions soon intensify, as he becomes more distracted by his new crush.
Sensing jealous glares from the cast and crew, and not wanting to have her career marred with a reputation as a trouble-maker, Dina is forced to brush off Will’s advances, despite her yearning for a more intimate escalation of their relationship.
Can Dina resist Will’s growing advances, or will she risk the chance that she might just be another A-lister’s romantic conquest?
Oh Wow! Great book!
What would you do if your Hollywood teenage crush made the moves on you? Well that is exactly what happened to Dina in this book. Will Derry, Hollywood’s Playboy heart-throb actor tries his hand at directing. Will is tired of the acting scene. The parties the women and the fake smiles. He decides that he wants to direct a film and take a break from the acting. What he does not expect is to be hit with feelings when he comes face to face with Dina. Feelings he has never had before. How does he deal with this when she runs away every chance she gets.
Dina did not expect Will to put the moves on her. That is exactly what he did though and she can’t help but think that she will be another notch on his post. So what does she do? She runs. She is terrified of the feelings this man causes. But she has to be strong and deny it, otherwise she will have her heart-broken.
I really enjoyed the layout of this story and how it flowed. It was a steady paced read with enjoyable main characters. It does not really focus much on other characters though. I would have liked to have seen more on that front. The chemistry between these two is electric. I enjoyed the push and pull of the story. It had me hooked and I had to keep reading to see if it would be a happy ending or not.
This is the first book by April Fire that I have read and I did enjoy it. So much so that I will check out more books by her. I recommend this book for a cozy read. But be warned it will have you hot and bothered before it is over.
