Elsie Moody brings considerable journalistic experience from a career in the Hollywood press industry, providing a vivid backdrop where industry politics and the cut throat nature of celebrity interweave through a narrative about real people, trying to make their way through an often superficial and unforgiving environment. The result, on that score, feels authentic.
Into the mix, Moody inserts a cast of diverse characters, led by plucky journalist Katelyn Ferris and enigmatic Hollywood A-List actor Nick Archer. They are appealing characters on their own terms, well drawn and full of nuance. I was impressed with how fully realized they are - though this I consider is a failing on my part. The Hollywood setting, the world of movies and celebrity had me thinking that I would find limits in the trajectory of Moody's characters. I underestimated just how much these individuals had to offer. They crackle with ambition, intelligence, sexiness, villainy and humanity. It was a delightful discovery.
Moody's story craft is layered well, with some satisfying twists and turns on its path towards resolution. There was unpredictability in the narrative too, which had me anxious and wanting to read ahead. And, of course, the romantic elements were lovely, with moments of tenderness, emotion and steam.
Buzzworthy is a smart, funny, sexy and heartfelt romance and a resounding success as a debut for Elsie Moody.
Kate is an entertainment reporter who meets one of Hollywood's hottest stars, Nick Archer (that SOUNDS like a movie star name, doesn't it?!). They hit it off right away but of course, nothing is ever easy in Hollywood!
I already said I was pleasantly surprised and I truly was. The story flowed really well and the dialogue was easy and smooth. There's not a whole lot of OTT drama or angst but there were a few unexpected twists that took the story in a new direction and I loved that!
Nick was not an alpha He-Man type. He was a unicorn in Hollywood, a heartthrob that wasn't a man wh@re...refreshing! Kate was a spunky but lovable character. She was a bit jaded, with pretty good reason but in the end, she was still smart enough to recognize the good person that Nick was. They made a charming, newsworthy couple!
There was only a few small things that kept this story from five stars for me. First, I would have liked to read more about Nick and Kate's "getting-to-know" you phase. Some of the scenes felt a little glossed over. I also had kind of a hard time connecting with Nick's character, though that may have had more to do with my preference for reading dual POVs than anything else!
Overall, this was one of those nice, easy afternoon reads...a well written, feel good book. I'm looking forward to more from Ms. Moody! Told entirely from Kate's POV with a happy ending. I received, read and voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
