What happens when two best friends who are secretly in love with each other hookup after one too many shots of tequila? For Sarah Travers and Cameron Scott, their friendship is quickly overshadowed by the uncertainty that comes with crossing the line from friends to lovers. Their problems are compounded when Cameron is cast as the lead in a major Hollywood blockbuster and he must decide what’s more important: sticking by the woman he’s loved since the moment they met or the bright lights and temptation of superstardom. 


When I met Cameron we hit it off like macaroni and cheese. Now we’re practically inseparable but I’ve been hiding the fact that I’m in love with him. Truly, madly, deeply. He finally figured it out and everything changed between us forever. That’s not my biggest problem though. You see, Cameron just landed the role of a lifetime and, despite how he feels about me, I’m worried I’m about to play second fiddle to the bright lights and temptations of Hollywood. 


I think I’ve loved Sarah since the first moment I laid eyes on her. It goes without saying she’s funny, smart, and has curves for days, but it’s more than that. She’s my light in this cynical, messed up world called Hollywood. I’d do anything to be with her, but I keep screwing up what should be easy. Now the studio is pressuring me to date my new co-star as part of a PR campaign and all I can think is maybe Sarah and I weren’t meant to be.

The chemistry in this book is HOT HOT HOT!!! Like it’s crazy how much Cameron and Sarah are soul mates. You can feel it!!

Cameron is a hot shot hollywood star. Well, at least he wants to be and finally gets his chance. He’s been cast as the lead role in something I can only compare to 50 Shades of Grey. Yes, that big! 

Sarah and Cameron have been best friends for a while. Then one seemingly drunken night things change. It totally freaks Cameron out and they don’t see each other for a month. On the same day he decides she’s it for him he wants her and wants her bad he also gets the news that he’s pretty much landed the role of a lifetime. So, all’s good right? Well, sorta. Sarah and Cameron work things out, of course, but how are they gonna last? Cameron has big expectations that only hollywood can demand. A lot of them personal ones. You have no life when you’re a celebrity. This is going to affect their relationship in ways neither are prepared for.

Add to this that Sarah is a size 14 and even though that’s not fat AT ALL in Hollywood it is definitely curvy. She’s not what is expected for Cameron. This also is going to be very hard for Sarah.

Can they make all this work for them? Will their relationship be strong enough? Can they love each other through this? 

The way Cameron and Sarah are when it’s just them is just magical and I loved that part. I will say that I loved this story! It’s sweet and funny and really HOT and passionate. The only thing is that it is very wordy. There are lots and lots of words. I did receive and ARC for this review and there is a good possibility it has not gone through the editing process yet.  I would not let this stop me from reading it. It’s an amazing book and a great story!!

Highly Recommend!!!

Rebecca has always loved writing stories. When she won a writing contest in third grade (a 1000-word epic tale about her teddy bear, Max), she announced she would someday become an author. When she wasn't writing her own stories, she was sneaking copies of her mom's paperback romances to read late into the night. (Which, thinking back, was probably not appropriate.) After graduating from the University of Pittsburgh in 2000 with a degree in Journalism, she embarked on a career in technology public relations in Silicon Valley, working for some of the country's hottest start-ups and publicly-traded companies. In 2014 she retired from corporate drudgery to write full time.

Rebecca lives in Dublin, Ireland, with her husband. When not writing, she is exploring her new city and traveling across Europe searching for inspiration for her next story. (Hint: it involves travel and rugby.)
