Summertime, where the livings easy…
At least that’s what I’d hoped for when I decided to visit Hollywood’s most sought-after director, AKA my usually absentee father, for the summer. But my vision of an idyllic break before starting grownup life after college comes to a halt when my dad puts me to work on his set.
As an aspiring screenwriter, I’m eager for any experience, but my time is spent as the errand girl, fulfilling every whim of Hollywood’s IT actor, the flirtatious, too-sexy-for-his-own-good Liam Taylor. As the shiny new girl, Liam thinks he has to have me, but his bad-boy persona turns me off, and I don’t want to be another notch on his bedpost.
Then there’s Hudson Callihan, the hot up-and-coming director working with my dad. He’s everything I think I want in a guy. What starts out as a friendship becomes a secret relationship, and I fall hard.
Things become complicated with Hudson when I’m thrown into a fake relationship with Liam to soften his scandalous reputation. And living on set with both guys and the crew is becoming more and more difficult.
I came to LA expecting to have a good time, but what I didn’t expect was to be faced with making the biggest decision of my life.

I read this book after reading the second one and to say I’m sorely disappointed is an understatement. The characters felt immature, the writing felt younger, and the plot was not nearly as engaging.
The story felt like one we’ve seen a million times. A girl has to date a Hollywood playboy to help his image. There is a bit of a love triangle which mildly set this book apart, but considering I loathe love triangles, it didn’t save it.
It was a guy falls first situation which was nice, but I never had strong feelings for Liam so it didn’t much matter to me. I ended up skipping to the end after a while of slogging through this one. Thank goodness I did because even the last few chapters were rough.
Do yourself a favor. Skip this book and go straight to the second, AUTUMN NIGHTS.
