Book Description

Juliet James is a starlet married to Steven Streets, one of the biggest action stars in history. He's handsome, sexy, and her best friend. There's only one thing keeping them from being more, and that's one thing they both have no desire to change. Gavin Martin, the executive producer on Juliet's new show, presents an irresistible attraction that places her husband's secret and his blockbuster career at risk.

Where all of the indulgences of heaven are there for the taking, Hollywood has made the trappings of a marriage of convenience a living hell. As Juliet and Gavin struggle to resist their passion for each other, the paparazzi isn't far behind.

From the Author

Excerpt:

"This document covers everything from maid service to housekeepers to even just close friends. He can't imagine exactly what this can cover as well," I lied. "I mean, what transpires between you and I." Tiny droplets of sweat formed at my hairline. "You and I work together. We've formed a friendship. He'll think it pertains to whatever happens or is said on set. The entire crew will have to sign one as well if the pilot becomes a series."

Gavin placed the document on a teak side table. Lifting up my chin gently, he caressed my cheek with his hand. "This doesn't work for me, Juliet."

I stared off into the moonlit seascape, watching the waves lap upon the shore. The ocean held as many tears as were prepared to fall from my eyes. I closed them as I breathed deeply, listening to the sound of the waves pounding and the crickets chirping at the sight of the moon. The nearness of him, combined with the romantic setting, seemed to be a stage set for a joke, a parody of forever unrequited love. I felt the weight of his body upon mine as his lips pressed against mine, opening them in a passionate kiss that ignited my very soul from the where his lips touched me in a secret place that had been treated as an affliction for far too long.

"I have a suggestion of my own that I want to run by you."  Slipping off the hammock, he disappeared down the stairs, then came back up with one hand behind his back. "Juliet, I know you are another man's wife, and under any other circumstances, I would have nothing to do with you. I can't stay away. I won't. Unless you ask me to."  He waited as he searched my eyes. He bent down on one knee and brought a box from behind his back. "Perhaps this is not as extraordinary as the one you already own. If you don't like it, I can find you a different one more suited to your taste. Juliet James, will you marry me?"

"Yes!" I blurted. Then just as quickly, "No! I mean...I have to ask Steven."

"Why?"

"I can't explain. I'll try. When you live with someone for so long, you owe them an explanation."

"Do you want to marry me, Juliet?"

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Quick Read January 31, 2013
By J.N.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Liz R. Newman's "The Movie Star's Wife" tells the story of Juliet James who is trapped in a sham marriage to Hollywood's biggest leading man. The novella vividly illustrates Juliet's internal struggle, as she is forced to admit that her loveless marriage of convenience has become an impediment to her own romantic desires. Despite the novella's heavier themes regarding the conflict between loyalty and self-fulfillment, Newman manages to keep the tone of "The Movie Star's Wife" light with her witty satirization of the Hollywood lifestyle. Also, by giving her narrator's voice just the right balance of sentimentalism and snark, Newman enables the reader to empathize with the struggles of a Hollywood socialite who seemingly has it all. A fun quick read, "The Movie Star's Wife" is a satisfying love story for an age when the line between reality and acting grows more and more hazy with each passing day.

5.0 out of 5 stars "COMPELLING, SIZZLING, INTRIGUING!" July 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Liz R. Newman delivers a compelling story as she takes the reader through a world of glamour and riches in high society. Juliet had experience in the starlet business and is now married to a famous Movie Star. She commits to helping a good friend conceal a secret from the public, but is tempted away from loyalty by the promise of true love. There is only one thing in the way from falling in love, a marriage of convenience becomes a nightmare, and a romantic interest of attraction is at risk of falling to pieces. This intriguing story draws the reader's interest immediately and colorful characters come to life in a picture-perfect setting. The reader will crave for more. Very Enjoyable and Highly Recommended!
