I haven't read a good Hollywood romance in quite a while, so I found the timing of this story beautifully refreshing. Vaughn West is an A-list movie star just coming down from a tabloid scandal. Charly Michaels is a wardrobe assistant who just landed a job on the set of Vaughn's next film. The storyline Towle crafted for these characters was just...so... right. Adorable. Sexy. Funny. It's everything a light and sweet romance should be. Everything from the sexy banter to the delicious pace to the unexpected moments of angst and heartbreak were just SO GOOD.
I love the celebrity element in this story, the fame, the glitz, the decadence. There's something so delicious about a story set upon the pedestal of Hollywood. There's a sense of unavailability in Hollywood, this feeling of a movie star being untouchable to the rest of us. And, honestly, there's no greater fantasy for anyone than a celebrity falling in love with them. Undeniably, that's what all of our romance dreams are made of. But so much sweeter, to be honest, is the simplicity of a romance between a regular guy and a regular girl. Lucky for us, in Wardrobe Malfunction, Samantha Towle gives us both. She creates this megastar who has it all, success, fame, wealth, privilege, and she makes him a relatable, sweet, flawed guy-next-door with a funny family and the desire to settle down with the right girl. With obstacles at every turn, both the cliche Hollywood-type drama and the kind of troubles any couple faces when secrets and jealousy and love are involved, this story is as angsty as it is romantic, as trying as it is satisfying.
This story is perfectly paced, packed with sharp banter, and laced with just the right amount of conflict that's timed just right. I devoured Wardrobe Malfunction in one sitting. This story is sexy and oh so steamy. It's a story of falling in love when the timing is all wrong but the chemistry is just right. It's a Cinderella story where the Prince of Hollywood finds himself reluctantly chasing the off-limits girl who mends his clothes. It's smart and witty and romantic and I laughed as often as I swooned. This one is a win!
Ms. Towle is a new-to-me author whose books I'm finally glad to have read beginning with this one. Because this romantic comedy was an amazing read that I loved from start to finish, due to the wonderful main characters that face some tough obstacles, the well-written dialogue that had me alternating between laughing and crying, and the fast-paced plot that really flew by until I couldn't believe how quickly I was at the end. Really, this story was addictive and I loved the way it started with what happens to Vaughn, which sends him into a downward spiral until someone finds a way to help him.
As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters back stories. Charly lost those she loved growing up, and the only family she has is her best friend; a guy she would do anything for, which is proven by the secret she's keeping. However, there were so many good light-hearted moments that had me laughing or smiling, especially the moment Vaughn and Charly met for the first time in this story and what the heroine does to him, because he makes her nervous. Luckily, Vaughn finds it within himself to forgive her and can tease her about that moment throughout.
Charly is strong, brave and she's accomplished a lot in her life, considering all that she's been through with losing her mom the way she did. She's also hard-working and I loved learning more about her and how passionate she is for all things fashion. While Vaughn, he's been through a lot in his life too. What his ex-best friend and ex-girlfriend did was unforgivable, but I liked that he managed to pull himself back from the brink of total destruction when it came to his career. Yet, what I liked most was the close relationship he had with his family and how easily they accepted Charly, because it's palpable how much he cares for the heroine.
Overall, Ms. Towle totally impressed me with this book where the scorching sex scenes illustrated the strong chemistry these two had from the moment they met superbly. The way this story ended brought tears to my eyes, because of Vaughn's reaction to Charly's secret. Why couldn't he understand that she had her reasons for doing what she did to help a friend? However, in saying that, I liked that Vaughn listened to a certain secondary character's advice in making things right with Charly, as they're a couple meant-to-be and nothing should be able to keep them apart. Then there's the epilogue which wraps this story up nicely, and Vaughn's speech was absolutely heart-warming. It goes to show that Charly means everything to him. I would recommend Wardrobe Malfunction by Samantha Towle, if you enjoy books with plenty of heat or if you enjoy reading books by Alessandra Torre, Vi Keeland or Penelope Ward.
