Description

She's so desperate that she is willing to take part in her publicist’s scheme of dating a Hollywood recluse who could also use some publicity. Kelly squeaked out a few more words of gratitude before scurrying back to her friends, who were doing a terrible job of pretending not to watch intently from a corner table. It’s a fake relationship trope which I love but there’s not enough character development and growth here for me. In her most self-­pitying moments, sweating in her bed in the middle of the night, she worried her career was in the same place it had been before she booked the show—­only now she was seven years older.

I bought it off the back of the preview, but for me the rest of the book doesn’t live up to the promise of that. Every Hollywood business seems to profit from these fears, claiming to have the right connections, and when everything turns to suffering anyway, there's always the endless supply of alcohol and/or Botox, to ease the pain, if only briefly. Grey and Ethan are definitely a couple that are just right for each other - from the beginning Ava Wilder was able to show their potential for chemistry and long term romance. Grey also has her fair share of troubles, the leaking of photos of the two of them throws her into depression, her complicated feelings about her mother and growing up being a co-breadwinner at a young age are hard for her to deal with. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

I think it happened in three or four scenes that they just ran away from each other instead of talking.

I couldn’t put it down; I was staying up late to see what would happen next, and picking this book up was my first thought in the morning. But that's my biggest complaint - I wanted more, because I could see the potential for this to be fantastic.

Seriously, you are 40 years old, you have two young children, hold yourself accountable and get your shit together for the love of god. Ethan’s addictions completely take over his sanity in a heartbreaking way, making this book fit into that 0. It was something that I never thought I'd do, or something that I would hold off on for a few years yet. Renata, on the other hand, was loud and glamorous in an eighties Business Bitch sort of way, with a cloud of teased red hair surrounded by an even larger cloud of Marlboro Light smoke.

But even though he wants to be better for her, he knows he has to work on him first, and I love seeing that in the book. Though their juicy public relationship is less than perfect behind the scenes, it doesn't take long before Grey and Ethan's sizzling chemistry starts to feel like more than just an act. It adds so much to them and the story, kind of the perfect balance to the fun of their fake dating and pr stunts. Her last relationship ended in disaster so she’s fine to set up a fake relationship with Ethan Atkins.

It had been eight months since the last episode of Poison Paradise aired, but the reminder still sent a jolt of anxiety through Grey’s body. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. But despite withstanding the heat of the scandal of their leaked private life, the pair split after less than a year of dating.

Ethan and Grey loved each other inspite of the struggles they navigated or maybe because of them, they were more than happy to support each other and be proud of each other's accomplishments.After reading the blurb and being enchanted by this fantastic cover, I was so hopeful to read something tempting, entertaining with Hollywood criticism of fake relationship trope!
