He is in town for the making of a movie. Steven is the man in charge of the stuntmen. He has honed his craft and his body shows the results. They immediately hit it off. These are two single, sexy adults. They are VERY sexual. There is lots of very hot sex going on quite often and if they are not in the middle of the act it self, they are thinking about it. So this story is not for the faint of heart! There are also a lot of "f" words that fit the story line but if it offends you, better pass. This guy is all that and more!! And she is right there with him.
Their lives become part of the movie crew and set. He works every day and she being a free spirit, is able to go to work with him to watch the making of a film. Her passion is writing. So far she is working on a screenplay but she is a beginner and has nothing looked at by others. But she continues to write. Of course, there is the bad sexy actress that just can't seem to get enough attention. Billed as a sex kitten, she can portray it on the screen but in real life she is like a dead fish! The guys may go one time, but no thanks to seconds. She is a rotten apple in the bunch. But she makes for a good storyline.
They seem to fall in love and be great with each other. But then tragedy hits. He wants to throw it all away for her own good. She refuses to allow him to make a choice for her. This story just got better and better as it went along. I really liked all the characters and the storyline. It was fun to see how stuntmen work and how they contribute to a movie. There were some pretty wild parties among the crew but I really think it wasn't anything that doesn't go on. We in the audience just don't see behind the scenes. It is a very good read and I definitely recommend it.
I was not paid for this review. I am not a writer nor do I know one. I am not kin to this author. I am a reader and this is my opinion, nothing more, nothing less. 1/27/18
“Ironic, that the pleasure of life can trick us into affection, and then need. Sun, food, sex, everything we enjoy we can enjoy too much.”
“I’m a closet singer. I’m pretty much unmatched in the shower.”
“The sky is rouged with pinks and scarlet shades. It’s as if this moment in time was staged for maximum effect. As if we’re in a painting…”
“I see the same smile of his face as I have on mine. It’s as if we discovered the Fountain of Youth, the buried treasure of Sierra Madre and the location of Shangri La.”
“I’ve come to believe people are placed in our lives for a reason. Each a teacher or a student. You either have something to learn from them, or they from you. Many times I find it’s both.”
“No matter how old we are, women love to talk about their boyfriends. It’s hysterical really. If you didn’t know we were in our thirties, you’d swear we were sixteen.”
“He just looks in my eyes. I let the moment be still. Something tells me to let this moment be about more than words. And when it’s about words, to let him speak uninterrupted.”
I am shocked and stunned to see that this was a debut novel for this author, as it was so crisp, well-written, and expertly turned out. I adored everything about it. I cherished the main characters, enjoyed the story, and was totally entertained and absorbed by the plot from beginning to end. The story was relevant, insightful, observant, believable, humorous, smartly written, and totally enjoyable. I cannot wait to start book 2.
The heroine, real estate professional Bliss has worked hard to become the successful woman she is. An early, failed marriage taught her some hard lessons about love, and finding her own happiness. That said, she's mature enough to know what she wants from a relationship, and secure enough to hold out for it. Yes, she's picky when it comes to a long-term prospect, but she's game for a little fun.
Hollywood stuntman Steven likes fine clothes, fast cars, and, frankly, he's appreciated his share of fast women too. But he's not trying to play anybody. He's attracted to Bliss. He's not afraid to pursue the attraction, and he's open to seeing where it leads. Steven could have easily been a stereotypical dirty-talking, adrenalin-fueled Hollywood bad boy, but I loved him more, and found him hotter, because was such a strong, confident, and refreshingly un-effed-up guy.
Sounds perfect, right? Oh no. Remember, there's a serpent in paradise. Outside forces bring the drama in this story. And boy, do they bring it.
With a debut like this, I can't wait to read more from Ms. Pike.
Bliss and Steven are what true love show us to be. It's not rainbows and flowers but if you can weather the storm, the sunshine is that much more beautiful!
I highly recommend this read. So many famous cameos here.
Of course you always have your royal bitch to deal with lol, but we slay those dragons right?
Steven the stuntman and Bliss the real estate mogul/screenplay writer are an amazing couple to follow.
From the start to the end of this book I wanted more, couldn't sleep without reading more.
Can't wait for more from this author!
