Daphne is having a terrible day; she flew all the way across the country to be ridiculed and have her dreams smashed. Now she just wants to go home but first she must embarrass herself by running into an innocent bystander only to find out her plane is delayed. While waiting on her plane to arrive she notices a serviceman and decides she wants to do something nice for him, like give him her first class ticket. This one attempt to do something nice begins her journey through all the pretty lights.
You see, the innocent bystander that she ran into was none other than Colton Webb, movie star bad boy. Colt sees this whole incident as an opportunity for some much needed good media attention, so like any good actor he capitalizes on it. What he planned on was a good-deed to make him look like a hero and then perhaps a way to get away from his ex, what he got instead was something completely unexpected.
On a trip of a life-time, Daphne joins Colt on his movie premiere tour and finds out what really goes into what you see on TV. It was one chaotic journey with one just looking to find themselves and the other just looking for publicity. But when you are around someone all the time and there was already a bit of chemistry, life gets a little bit trickier.
"I can't see him well, yet I know I'm staring into his soul. And it's staring back into mine."
I enjoyed these characters immensely; Daphne was a strong character. She didn't take handouts and was not interested in riding anyone's coattails. She wanted to make a name for herself all on her own and while she was shy, because who wouldn't be when thrown to the wolves, she was also unexpected and a breath of fresh air. She was untainted by the limelight and even by the end of the tour she was just an average person. Colton was a fun character, a professed jerk and made some pretty poor choices but a fierce companion and bit of softy at heart. There were also side characters that made the story more interesting; there were some that were entertaining, some you wanted to punch and others that you just wanted to know more about. I am looking forward to what is coming next because I am curious to see what the author dreams up for this one. And finally, because I am used to this particular author's writing, I am ever so grateful for the perfect ending.
If you are already a fan you will not be disappointed. If this is your first Tara Oakes book get ready for a long relationship.
Daphne and Colton are quite interesting characters. They are pretty much polar opposites of each other. Or at least that's true until they meet and Colton's world goes upside down. Daphne manages to open something in him that he hasn't felt for a long time. She changes him towards good and he is ready to do whatever it takes to have her by his side. Even if it means that he has to slightly bend the truth. Which considering how stubborn Daphne is, is his only way to have her by his side. Their relationship is definitely a roller coaster but in the end they get their HEA :)
As a whole the book is fun to read, though I would've preferred the pace to be faster. Apart from that, it is still quite a good read to snuggle with on a cold winter night ;)
This review was originally posted at Living In Our Own Story Book Blog. I received an ARC of the book in exchange of an honest review.
I'm also a huge fan of Tara Oakes.
When I found out she wrote a Movie Star Romance... I was stoked!
After reading it though. .. I'm officially blown away!
Their is no shortage of lights and cameras in this romance, and most definitely no shortage of romance either.
Tara really knows how to portray an A list Hollywood actor. It amazes me. This book took me through a lot of emotions and twist and turns, and every bit of it is worth it!
I can't wait for book 2 to come out in April 2016, The Ex American Sweetheart gets her debut !
