This is not the book to pick up late at night because you won’t be able to put it down. The storytelling is seamless and the plot is very well thought out. The second half became a little predictable, but I enjoyed every word of it. Every scene, every word, and all the descriptions were perfectly written and perfectly placed. Every detail was necessary.
The romance played out just the way I wanted it to – chance meet, mutual initial attraction, spending lots of time together to fall for each other. It was the best of the best romances.
Jake and Hailey were so detailed and their personalities full and alive. I loved being in each of the characters’ heads and watching them make mistakes and get in over their heads.
I didn't expect to like this as much as I did, but it had all the right elements to win me over.
The story of Hailey (a hard-working, kickass woman who loved a certain sci-fi show) and Jake (a young actor in a hit CW-like sci-fi show) was equal parts adorable and hot.
Jake and Hailey meet when the actor is "assaulted" by fans, and from that moment on they spend a lot of time together trying to help each other, both because they need it and because they can't seem to walk away from each other. The attraction is instant, and due to the timeline, they fall in love quite fast, but somehow it still didn't feel like insta-love for me.
There was something special about the way the author handled their interactions and managed to add enough info about their past, creating that sense that while they'd only recently met, they already knew enough about each other (and had been through enough) that it made sense for them to fall in love. And dude, those two went through a lot: fake relationship, obsessed fans, family problems, fights, stalkers... and finally sex. LOL.
That was another plus for me: the fact that they didn't have sex early on. There's almost, almost sex, but things happen, which means the sexual tension lasts a lot longer. Yay!
Now, the characters were the true winners in this story for me. Both Hailey and Jake were awesome in their own way. Hailey was a kickass woman with enough attitude to make me fall for her right from the beginning. She's exactly how I like my MCs: independent, anti slut-shaming, sex-positive, fierce, sometimes a little too stubborn and a real family-girl. Her relationships with her sisters made her even more likable. I loved how she took care of them.
And Jake... Jake was adorably adorable. I mean, dude was so sweet. He was the beta to Hailey's alpha. He had a nice arc going on with his issues with his dad and learning how to stand up to himself, but when it came to Hailey and their relatioship, I thought Jake had things a lot more figured out than Hailey. He knew what he wanted and he didn't play games to get there, even when though they had a fake relationship going for a while. I thought he respected her, and when he made a mistake, he didn't see a problem with apologizing. And he was sexy AF. I loved Jake.
Since I love both Hailey and Jake, it was pretty easy to fall for them as a couple, too. They were hot from moment on, but they also shared some quiet moments that only helped them bond.
Other than the main characters and their romance, I also loved the side characters and their dynamics. Hailey and her sisters had the kind of relationship that showed love, but also had room for conflict, which I'm guessing will be explored later on in the series. I'm also super curious about Rachel's past love life.
On Jake's side, I adored Miles and Simon's friendship and I want more of that. Even the interactions between Miles, Simon and Jake were pretty great. There's this one scene where they're doing a panel and Jake follows up a joke between Miles and Simon with one of his own, and I was SCREAMING because it was THAT brilliant. It gave me major TVD cast in early seasons FEELS (only with three guys and no Nina Dobrev).
*sighs* I miss how good that show was. Seasons 1 to 3 were just the best.
Back to the book... I have to say I was more than pleased to see Brazil mentioned there. Go, Brazil!!!!
Well, there were A LOT of things I loved about this book, as you can see. I highly recommend it to all fans of romance. If you also happen to love TV shows, conference and panels with actors, and actors interacting with fans, then what are you waiting for? Go grab a copy.
Yup, that was a whole lot of perfect for Lenore. I was sucked right in, and entertained from start to finish. I loved the humour, I loved the characters, I loved the romance, I loved the geek stuff, I loved the celebrity aspect... Seriously, it was just my kind of book, you know?
Hailey was all sorts of unique as a heroine. Not just because she embraced her rockabilly style, but because she was hiding a childhood growing up with grifters, and damage from time spent in the foster system. I liked that she was both tough and independent, but she was also using her sisters as a crutch to avoid being vulnerable. It was surprisingly easy to love her.
Jake was just uber adorable. I just wanted to hug him. He was so sincere, and kind, and caring, and passionate about what he loved. I will admit that I saw the Susie thing from like a mile away, and so just kept waiting for him to figure things out. I actually anticipated that resolving with Hailey as a catalyst, but I was satisfied with the way it went anyways.
And I liked the two of them together...you could really feel their draw to each other, and the chemistry and sexual attraction. Seriously, it was hot. But, even though it was hella fast, I still really enjoyed the development of their relationship due to spending so much time together in a short span of time. And I found it amusing how tongue in cheek Ms. Yardley was having Hailey despise insta-love in stories and then giving Hailey a fast love story herself. I'm sure it will bother some people, but I loved it. I'm not an insta-love hater though (not a lover, just not a hater).
And the secondary cast was pretty great too, from Hailey's sisters to Jake's co-stars. It's definitely setting up future stories, you can totally tell.
Honestly, other than totally guessing the Jake side story, the only other thing I was meh on was the stalker storyline. It felt a little thrown in last minute, and like just a plot device. But I loved so much else in the story, I don't even care.
Any book that can make me tempted to fight through sleep and keep reading, even though it's 3 am, is my kind of book. I did manage to resist, but I was epically tired. Can't wait for more in this series. Gotta go back and read Level Up now, though those characters are only loosely mentioned in this one...it stands alone pretty well. I concur with the title: Jake and Hailey are my OTP!
