Overview

Life couldn’t be any better for celebrity screenwriter Danny Masters: he’s dating a movie-star bombshell and his latest screenplay screams Oscar. But still, he feels empty.

Enter Sunny Smith.

After turning the big 4-0 with few prospects on the horizon, Sunny creates forty goals for herself — and sleeping with her writing idol, Danny Masters, makes the list.

The two meet outside the theater hosting Danny’s premiere. He’s everything she’s imagined him to be. And she captivates him, reminding him of simpler times before the hollowness of Hollywood. But when Danny lashes out at the audience — his fans — during the post-screening Q&A session, Sunny bitterly returns his scorn from the head of his autograph line.

After a video of Sunny’s tirade goes viral, Danny desperately seeks out Sunny so he can apologize. When their paths cross again, they’ll have to look inside themselves to determine the true worth of adulation.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Sunny Smith, a pretty 40-year-old bookstore employee, realizes that she has little to show for her years, despite loving what she does and adoring her two best friends. Across the country, Danny Masters, a revered and popular screenwriter, is also facing a life crisis. Although his scripts have become huge hits, he continues to question his talent and wonder whether his on/off relationship with a beautiful actress is real. As a lifelong Danny Masters fan, Sunny is overwhelmed when her friends surprise her with a ticket to his latest movie’s premiere and an opportunity to actually meet her hero. But the occasion doesn’t go according to plan, and both Sunny and Danny must re-evaluate their values, their fears, and their inexplicably passionate feeling for each other. Alternating narration keeps the story lively, while the protagonists’ authentic struggles and aspirations will keep readers rooting for them until the last page. (Nov.)
