Yay I love books set in the Bay Area. I lived in SF, currently live in the East Bay and grew up in the North Bay. I totally related to all the lingo lol esp when he jumped on the muni in the beginning, I’m like is he in SF?
This book was so what I needed this week! And I have been collecting Jasmine’s books but like all of us buy books and put them on my shelf and take pictures. I need to read all of them if they are little treasures of stories like this was.
The representation of mental health and how normal anxiety, therapy, just needing someone to help process overwhelming things in our life is wonderful. And the insight that you are never “cured” you learn coping and processing but you don’t have to be perfect. There is such a stigma but it should be normal and not be something people judge.
I loved that they both eventually noticed eachothers weaknesses and what they thought was their own weakness the other thought was a strength.
And wow the steam🔥🔥 they just could not get enough of eachother!!! So so steamy! Loved it! 🔥🔥
What started as a casual relationship, then a fake relationship, can it become more?
I just loved so much about this story!
Thank you berkley romance and net galley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.
Two people realize that it’s no longer an act when they veer off-script in this sizzling romantic comedy by New York Times bestselling author Jasmine Guillory.
Ben Stephens has never bothered with serious relationships. He has plenty of casual dates to keep him busy, family drama he’s trying to ignore and his advertising job to focus on. When Ben lands a huge ad campaign featuring movie star Anna Gardiner, however, it’s hard to keep it purely professional. Anna is not just gorgeous and sexy, she’s also down to earth and considerate, and he can’t help flirting a little…
Anna Gardiner is on a mission: to make herself a household name, and this ad campaign will be a great distraction while she waits to hear if she’s booked her next movie. However, she didn’t expect Ben Stephens to be her biggest distraction. She knows mixing business with pleasure never works out, but why not indulge in a harmless flirtation?
But their lighthearted banter takes a turn for the serious when Ben helps Anna in a family emergency, and they reveal truths about themselves to each other, truths they’ve barely shared with those closest to them.
When the opportunity comes to turn their real-life fling into something more for the Hollywood spotlight, will Ben be content to play the background role in Anna’s life and leave when the cameras stop rolling? Or could he be the leading man she needs to craft their own Hollywood ending?
