Today I have the blog tour for Miss Hollywood by Marie Garner! Check it out and grab your copy today! ~ Naughty Girl
Marie Garner’s Miss Hollywood was such a quick, refreshing and fun read.
I **love** reading novels about forbidden romances that occur between the hero or heroine and their best friend’s brother. The quagmire is infinitely appealing, particularly because it is often considered taboo to encroach upon sacred ground, especially when a love interest has indirectly been declared “off limits.”
Will they or won’t they act on their desires?
That is the question that reels me in and fuels my interest every single time. When it comes to these types of romances I am like a fly lured into the spider’s web or the unfortunate fish that wonders his way into a fisherman’s net.I simply cannot resist the lure, and that is the very reason that I was so excited to read Miss Hollywood.
Marie Garner did not fail to reel me in with this lovely story about two people with kinetic chemistry and insecurities that threaten to diminish the flame that burns between them. In fact, she delivers a tale that is sweet, thought-provoking and guaranteed to thoroughly satisfy you yet it will also drag you through the emotional wringer in the same breath.
One of the most welcoming aspects to this novel is that the heroine, Clare Martin is the so-called “it-girl” in Hollywood; typically, it is the hero that is on the receiving end of the adulation that comes along with all that the fame associated with Hollywood implies. This unique, imaginative and fresh take on the heroine’s celebrity greatly appealed to me.
And I adored Alexander’s character. He is troubled and imperfect and he makes his mistakes but when it comes to Clare he is wide open with his feelings, whether he intends to be or not. He is strong, loyal and incredibly fascinating due to his turbulent family history and his struggle with addiction. There is an inherent sexiness about vulnerable heroes, and the author showcases this well throughout the novel.
The romance between Alexander and Clare shines brightly in spite of the obstacles that threaten to extinguish their spark. They are thrust together in a set of extenuating circumstances that force them to acknowledge their attraction and address the passion that has ignited between them. However, deception and undisclosed truths threaten to obliterate their newfound happiness.
Allow me to be perfectly clear: Miss Hollywood is like an amusement park ride. Yes, I was more than ready to dive in headfirst and I was prepared for everything that would come along with the joyride. When it was over, I was ready to jump right back in and experience the journey over and over again.
Can Alexander and Clare’s love affair survive the stumbling blocks and hurdles that they encounter as they race towards true love?
READ IT because I recommend Miss Hollywood to anyone who likes pleasurable love stories that will leave the heart warmed and invigorated due to a book’s transcendent highs and heavenly, intoxicating moments. It will light you up with euphoria and leave you grinning from ear to ear!
Thumbs up for Ms. Garner’s latest release!!!
And that is my final word.
