Cole has relied on others for so long, he was basically helpless in a sexy kind of smirky-smile way. I think I actually liked him more because of his bossy attitude. Unfortunately, I struggled with Summer's character. She drove me crazy and was kinda hateful for a good portion of the book. I understand it was in response to Cole's occasional brash comments, but for someone who needed the money, she was basically argumentative and disrespectful to her boss. Granted, Cole took pleasure in getting her riled up, but still. It got old. Their interactions for a large part of the book consisted of either swapping nasty words at each other or struggling not to throw the other down and kiss them (not that I minded those scenes), but I had whiplash. They were both close to thirty years old, and some of the scenes were like watching teenagers throwing snit fits.
Overall I enjoyed the story and I was happy with the ending. I'll definitely read more from this author.
Ok so first off I picked up this book due to it being filmed for PassionFlix. I had heard many people say wonderful things about Alessandra's books but I had never picked a book of hers up before. All I can say now is WOW!!!!
The way this book reads and goes along is so amazing. I'm from the south so I was able to identify with it very closely and by the end while I felt like Summer about wanting to get out...it made me love my small southern town.
Summer Jenkins is a southern girl living in Georgia. She's from a small town where everyone knows your name and all your business. When their small town becomes the focal point for a new feature film staring the Hollywood heartthrob, Cole Masten, Summer sees it as her chance to escape the town she's lived in most her life. Little does she know that meeting Cole would soon have her staring in the film.
Cole Masten is the hottest actor in Hollywood and he's got the life he loves. A career he loves, fans who adore him and a wife he loves. Only he doesn't realize his wife no longer loves him. Walking in on something he wasn't supposed to know has his world turned upside down. Soon he finds himself in Quincy, Georgia focusing on his next film when he meets Summer Jenkins. Hearing her smart mouth with that sweet southern charm has him going insane. Will she be the one to truly undo him??
The chemistry between Summer and Cole can be felt from the moment they meet. Both have been scorned by love yet as much as they are trying to protect themselves they can't deny their attraction together. Seeing the small bits of concern Cole has for Summer while Summer lets her guard down briefly seeing the kinder side to Cole. They begin to get closer to one and other and from there all walls are down and feelings are known.
I honestly am still reeling from this story and don't want to let them go. I want to know more...what will happen now?? Ohh my mind is racing with so many possibilities as to what will happen for them all.
Sometimes you need to stop and smell the roses. I heard this quote so many times growing up and as I read this novel, I realized how long it's been since I actually took that advice. During my literary voyage reading the fabulously written novel Hollywood Dirt by Alessandra Torre, I did just that! Hollywood charm meets Southern grit and that combination had me in stitches at times, while I thoroughly enjoyed the plot as it unfolded. This is Carson and Summer's happily ever after and their journey to discover their true inner selves. It is something you do not want to miss!
Carson is Hollywood's golden boy. The perfect actor, perfect husband, perfect male specimen until he returns home one evening early to catch his wife with another man! His world is rocked and shifts to an ugly fight over property and his newest venture a movie he is producing and starring in. Summer is southern to the core. She grew up in the little town of Quincy, where Sunday church attendance is required and everyone knows everyone else's business. Her southern drawl is as feisty as her temper and manners of course are mandatory! When the two collide, sparks ignite and a love/hate relationship blossoms. But being a gentle bred lady, Summer reigns in her temper and tries to maintain an aloof persona towards the handsome entitled actor.
I must say Ms. Torres has written a magnificent book from start to finish. The elements that she inserts remind me of growing up in the south and I can relate so well to the characters. The interaction between the main characters keeps you involved and the secondary are perfectly woven to fit flawlessly into the story. Bennington was the scout looking for places to film and when he meets Summer a true friendship begins. She helps him gain access to the families that he is looking to use their properties as location spots and in return he helps fund her way to get out of Quincy. The rooster is one of my favorite things in the story, loved Cocky and all he brought to the read. Such a welcome addition to my library and I cannot stress enough how you need to buy this book!
