My rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


One of Hollywood’s A-listers, I have the movie industry in the palm of my hand. But if I’m going to stay at the top, my playboy image needs an overhaul. No more tabloid headlines. No more parties. And absolutely no more one-night stands.

Filming for my latest blockbuster takes place on the coast of Maine and I’m determined to stay out of trouble. But trouble finds me when I run into Lana Kelly.

She doesn’t recognize me, she’s never heard of Matt Easton and my million-dollar smile doesn’t work on her.

Ego shredded, I know I should keep my distance, but when I realize she’s my neighbor I know I’m toast. There’s no way I can resist temptation when it’s ten yards away.

She has a mouth designed for pleasure and legs that will wrap perfectly around my waist. She’s movie star beautiful and her body is made to be mine.

Getting Lana Kelly into my bed is harder than I’m used to. She’s not interested in the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, but I’m determined to convince her the best place in the world is on the red carpet, holding my hand.

I could have any woman in the world, but all I want is the girl next door.

A sexy, standalone romance.

My thoughts…

Hollywood heartthrob and movie star Matt Easton is on location filming his next movie. He has spent the last several years repairing his image and doesn’t need any kind of scandal. While Matt is filming he has rented a cottage away from the city to enjoy the solitude and quiet of being in a small town.

Lana Kelly, a talented jewelry designer with her own shop, has sworn off men after an incident in college sent her rushing back home to her small town. Lana and her best friend co-own the cottage next door to hers which they rent out to tourists for an additional income.

Lana admits that her new renter is beyond gorgeous. However, she's not interested in any kind of involvement. Lana has no idea that Matt's famous. She thinks he's just another tourist visiting and has no idea that he's there to film his latest blockbuster. Matt loves the idea of Lana not knowing that he is famous, she thinks of him as just a regular guy. Lana and Matt became friends and begin to open up with one another.

Matt reveals his full name and what he does for a living, Lana still doesn't realize just how famous he really is or that he is Hollywood’s heartthrob. Matt loves that Lana sees beyond his Hollywood image. Unfortunately, Lana thinks there's an expiration date for their relationship, but Matt wants something more. Because of Lana’s horrible public embarrassment in New York, she is not sure she can handle being in spotlight with Matt.

The chemistry between Matt and Lana is completely off the charts. Neither of them has experienced anything like it before. The story had great pace with just the right amount of push and pull between the characters. They wanted to make each other’s lives better and they encouraged one another to go after what they wanted in their careers. I just loved how Matt and Lana supported each other unconditionally. They are fantastic together and the conclusion left me with a big smile.

Happy Reading -J
