The Celebrity Series, Book 1
By: Liz Durano
Narrated by: Tracy Marks
I loved this story, it is well written and it captivated my mind from start to end. The storylines are interesting and there are so many emotions built in to them. An array of emotions, happiness, sadness, anger, guilt and shame. I liked both leads, Riley and Ashe, the chemistry between them was smoking. I really felt for Riley, she did not have the easiest childhood and then her life fell apart when her heart was broken by her childhood sweetheart. And Ashe had a way about him, his charm, personality, confidence and positive outlook. He seemed to have wisdom within, I am looking forward to find out more about him in the next book, “Loving Riley”. Liz Durano, thank you for this great story and the drama, twists, humor and hot romance. I hope the audio of “Loving Riley” is in the works and will be available soon.
I listened to the audio edition, Tracy Marks is a fabulous narrator & storyteller. She performs all the voices and switches characters effortlessly with out missing a beat. Great job with Ashe’s accents too. Thank you for another great & entertaining listen!!

The story begins with Riley stuck in an elevator, on the way to find her ex-boyfriend, Gareth. Little did she know that fate would nail a play on her and make her stay in that elevator with the actor Ashe Hunter, whom she didn't know was famous.
They begin to know each other and things get really interesting. Ashe is a perfect man, doing everything to show Riley that she's worth it.
The twists of the story made me very surprised, and with some characters I felt a love-hate relationship at the same time, for all that they made Riley go through.
I loved the triplets, Paige, the coffee team. All characters are very interesting and essential to the story.
I loved the unfolding of the story and its end, and now I'm anxious to read "Loving Riley".
I highly recommend reading this book.
Riley and Ashe are wonderful characters from completely different worlds. Ashe is a British actor who has started becoming more famous and popular. He's from a small town in England and his family and friends keep him grounded. He had some tragedy and went away from everything for awhile and now he's back. Riley has been heartbroken and not really living since Gareth left her. She didn't handle him leaving her well and ended up heavy into drugs and overdosed. Her sister Paige and her husband Clint sent her to rehab and then helped her with becoming part owner of The Library Cafe. Riley's completely real and she fascinates Ashe. He realizes how wonderful she is and can't get her out of his mind. Ashe is gorgeous, talented, and he's pretty down to earth considering he's a movie star.
I'm about to delve into the next book - Loving Riley and see more into this wonderful pair's world.

Ashe is a real gentleman and continued to pursue Riley even though she felt he was too good to be true. She was even more surprised when she found out that Ashe is a famous English actor. As time went on, they did get closer and Riley felt she could no longer resist Ashe.
A lot of things were revealed near the end that ties Riley to her ex, as well as her sister and brother-in-law. These revelations were heartbreaking and utterly shattered Riley but she's got Ashe to support her.
I really enjoyed this story and am looking forward to reading the next book, Loving Riley.
(I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book)
