Our Review

‘That was the funny thing about life: it rarely gave a shit about expectations.’

Well didn’t we fall in love with this sweet, funny and sexy Hollywood story. Anders the cocky and gorgeous movie star of the hour who sweeps through women leaving them the minute he’s had them once and once only. He was a cock – proper egotistical arsehole, but we just couldn’t help but fall in lust and love with him.

‘He was an asshole and a fuckup, and he was going to ruin her, but she wanted him anyway.’

Once unearthed his story was quite heart breaking and emotional but he hid his inner most thoughts and feelings well under a sexy and arrogant armour. That was until Josie; affectionately known as Ivy to our Anders.

“Please don’t break me.”

Ivy was a down to earth, intelligent and successful woman. She knows what she wants and to begin with that’s one night with a certain sexy movie star whose ego’s as big as his…..However, we don’t always get what we want and sometimes unexpectedly we get more. Josie doesn’t expect a second chance at what she wants or even the magnitude of what this means to her. But Anders is a demanding and persistent lovable bastard who’s learning what it is to let love in and happen once again. Trust when broken is bloody hard to retrieve no matter the player change.

“For the record, I wish I could have been enough.”

Anders and Ivy’s banter was spot on and had us smiling and chuckling. Their passion was palpable and the heat factor and attraction intense. Anders feels life as he knows it slip between his fingers as his heart is set on what it wants despite his refusing to acknowledge it or know what to do with it. His heart wants Josie.

“You want to know what you are to me? You’re mine. That’s what.”

This is the book that kept on giving. It was long; a little too long really. It certainly could have done with being shorter as it began to impact our overall enjoyment due to a dragging storyline and some repetition. However; on the whole, we really enjoyed Hollywood & Vine; it had all the elements that makes for a great read; well written, humour, drama and romance.  We definitely recommend this one!

Synopsis

In the land of Hollywood, bright lights cover lies, truths hide in shadows, and the lives of the rich and famous are illusions created by smoke and mirrors.

When costume designer Josie Bane first lays eyes on Anders Ellis, she hates him instantly. Conceited and arrogant, he’s the epitome of a Hollywood playboy. So it’s much to Josie’s dismay when he becomes the star of her sexual fantasies.

Never expecting to see him again, she gives in to her desires for a night she’ll never forget. However, Josie soon learns that life is full of surprises. When their paths cross again, sparks fly. With three little words, Anders changes everything.

He’s after one thing.

She refuses to give it to him… again.

When Josie realizes she’s falling for a man that will never let her in but refuses to let her go, she must decide if the risk is worth the reward.

With a relationship shrouded in secrets and outside forces poised to tear them apart, did they ever stand a chance? Before the smoke clears and the curtain falls, Josie and Anders must distinguish between what’s fact and what’s fiction in a place where the truth is never black and white.
