The concept was different. The characters were well developed and some had issues, making them complex.
The story is about an author who brings her book to the silver screen. She goes to L.A. to watch the filming & discovers that everyone has it all wrong. Since she is a control freak, there are many arguments with the actors, the director and the financial backer. In the interim, she falls in love & runs always from love due to a fearful past. The book is cute it reads like a movie would. It is appropriate for YA readers.
So, looking back at the blurb now, I realize I probably would have wanted to read this even if it was written by someone else. The idea of a novelist battling a director over the creative integrity of her book turned film, is something that any hard working author could relate to, or at least dream about. I’m pretty sure that was the overall pull for me. The way Aubrey fights so hard to make her dream of seeing her book adapted and displayed on film, was enough to set aside a few trivial issues I had with the characters. Oh, and I totally geeked when the title actually appeared within the lines of dialog. He he.
The story is flawless and funny; no doubt, a masterpiece of comedy with romance always awkwardly lingering in the air. I was impressed with the author’s command of adult actions and speech. She’s truly mastered her roles as YA, New Adult, and Adult author well. The tone of this story is so much more mature than her YA or New Adult work, and not just because it gets a little steamy. Aside from the typical female insecurities sure to be found on the set of any Hollywood film, these characters aren’t trying to figure out who they are. They know who they are and they all have jobs. They just can’t seem to find love, but that’s an issue that teens and adults will always face.
I did find it a bit hard to relate to the characters, but then we are talking about a teacher from the burbs compared to Hollywood hunks and executives. Even though I felt detached, as though none of it was really happening, I was still thoroughly entertained. It was actually like watching most action movies. Pure entertainment. And oh boy, was it entertaining.
I really enjoyed how we are told the story through Aubrey's point of view but it was told to an RB (reporter barbie).
Aubrey is an amazing author who one day gets to have one of her books put onto the big screen! How awesome is that for an author to have their work put out on the big screen it is an accomplishment. But when Aubrey comes onto the set that is when tension beings even though her bff is there to try and help her out.
Some of the actors who are playing the parts of Aubrey's book characters are not what she expects, the way she envisions the scenes are not coming together and this makes her butt heads with Kole the director.
Right from the start I could tell that Kole and Aubrey were going to play hard to get with each other. As they can joke with each other but then just annoy the crap out of each other.
When it comes to point that Art the main dude in charge is tired of dealing with the way they are acting he gives them the ultimatum either play together or the film is cut.
With Aubrey seeing her dream being taken away she plays nice with Kole but in the process the higher beings the film industrial decides to spice up the hype of the film by having the author and the main character Greyson "pretend" to be together. Now this is becoming more than Aubrey is bargaining for as she is seeming to lose herself, and we watch as Kole tries to get her to speak her mind and show the world who she truly is.
As the story progresses we go back and forth with Kole and Aubrey and Aubrey and Greyson, throw in Mateo and Tandy and their comical ways and you are bound with laughter, a bit of heartache and finally happiness.
There is no sex scenes just the mention of a leg or two being overthrown that shall not be mentioned. And the two characters that get together at the end we don't get much of their "couple" status just how they became together and finally engaged. Overall this was a really good book, I was very impressed with the author getting into a new genre and doing a wonderful job.
Some of my favorite quotes through out the book.
"Can stress cause someone's eyeball to shoot right out of their socket? I'm legitimately worried about that right now."
"If he looked at me like that for even a second, I'd throw my panties at him hard enough to bruise his forehead."
"I gotta ask, woman to woman, how did you not hit that daily, and nightly, and ever so rightly?"
"If you become any more of a horn-dog we won't be able to allow you on the furniture."
