Someone Else's Fairytale is a charming story about Chloe Winters, a soon to be university graduate who inadvertently and almost reluctantly falls head over heels for Jason Vanderholt, Hollywood's hottest actor.
Chloe isn't your average young adult, having a broken family and traumatic near death experience at a very young age almost guaranteed her lack of trust and a maturity beyond her years.
Chloe first meets Jason when she volunteers to be an extra on his movie set. Jason is instantly intrigued by the girl who doesn't automatically swoon at his feet. Chloe is not impressed (and not afraid to show it) and offers Jason the only thing she is willing to give; her friendship.
The story progresses with the development of Jason and Chloe's friendship as well as the addition of Chloe's friend Matthew complicating the mix.
We learn about Chloe's background, Jason's hectic lifestyle and tabloid tales and also his loveable family.
Jason declares his feelings for Chloe but doesn't get the answer he is hoping for; “It's not my fairytale. It's not anything I ever wanted....I don't want to be the envy of every other woman on the planet....This is someone else's fairytale.”
They say absence makes the heart grow fonder and it is true in this case, as Jason films a movie, Chloe has time to reflect and realises just how much she misses Jason after all. She takes a leap of faith and opens her heart to the man she can no longer deny she loves.
I won't say much about the ending as it is best to read this to discover it for yourself but what I will say is this; in the end it is up to us to write our own fairy tales.
I enjoyed reading this story. I'm glad it wasn't the normal "Mega Movie Star" falls for "Little Miss Nobody" storyline. Someone Else's Fairytale provided character depth. Jason was more than a huge star and at times I felt sorry for the lack of freedom he had in his own life. Chloe was confident character. She had been through a lot in her short life and came out the other side as a survivor. At times I did feel Chloe could be a little naive when it came to Matthew and Jason and I felt her actions and dialogue portrayed her younger than her 21 years.
I liked the involvement of Jason's family and the relationship between Kyra and Chloe and also the journey Chloe and her own mother went on through the book.
I preferred the slow build of Chloe and Jason's relationship and there wasn't any of this 'insta-love' although I felt it was going a little too slow at times and I wanted to say to Chloe 'go get him already!'
I felt the ending of the book didn't match the overall pace and it seemed a little rushed. I was pleased with the ending but would have liked to have read in greater detail about the events that had taken place.
Overall this was a good book. The different dimensions of the characters and the events within took you on a worthwhile journey. I am interested to read where the story goes from here.

Overall a great premise for a story, but the writing style was mediore at best. It progressed VERY SLOWLY. I couldn't follow the story at times and I couldn't get into the character's as much as I tried. I did not feel the romance and the love that was professed between them. Chloe was qute boring and I did not see the connection with Jason. As stated the overall storyline is believable and that is why I gave it 2 stars. I also did buy the sequel to see how it went. Hopefully better!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I did not like this book. I thought the characters interactions
were a little weird. The book was really slow and did not keep my attention. I wanted to know about Chloes past annd thats the only reason it finished the book..
