Overview

NO WOMAN COULD RESIST HIM . . .

Once voted the "Sexiest Man Alive," Jericho Beaumont had dominated the box office before his fall from grace. Now poised for a comeback, he wants the role of Laramie bad enough to sign an outrageous contract with top producer Kate O'Laughlin--one that gives her the authority to supervise JB's every move, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

ESPECIALLY THE ONE WITH THE MOST AT STAKE . . .

The last thing Kate wants to do is baby-sit her leading man, and Jericho Beaumont may be more than she can handle. A player in every sense of the word, he is an actor of incredible talent--and a man with a darkly haunted past. Despite her better judgment, Kate's attraction flares into explosive passion, and she is falling fast. But is she being charmed by the real Jericho or the superstar who dazzles the world?

Read an Excerpt



"But the stress of having to carry a movie might be too much for him to handle. A starring role like Laramie would put pressure on someone who's completely healthy, let alone--" Kate took a deep breath. It was important to keep breathing. Without air, she would just keel over. "Victor, I know you see only the possibility of greatness. You see Jericho's talent. He shines, I'm not arguing about that. It's all over that audition tape. But I'm not convinced that he's going to be able to carry this movie--both physically and mentally. I don't want to gamble all the millions of dollars I've busted my ass finding for this project. I'm not willing to bet all that on someone like Jericho. I can't take that risk--and I can guarantee that the other financial backers won't want to take that risk, either. There's got to be someone else who can play this part."

Victor stood up. "Katie. I hear everything you're saying. And I know what I should do is agree with you and find someone else." He shook his head. "But I can't do it. I can't make this movie knowing that I could have had my number one, absolute, perfect cast. I can't do it knowing that I've got to settle across the board. Because if I don't get Jericho, I don't have Susie. And without the two of them, I won't have Jamaal."

"Victor--"

He held up his hand. "I love you, you know that, and this is the best script I've seen in about ten years, but I will walk away from both you and this script if you don't let me cast Jericho. I'm sorry, babe, but it's ultimatum time. I want Jericho. Susie and Jamaal want Jericho. If you want me to stay connected, it's up to you to figure out a way to make the backers want Jericho,too."

I liked the characters and it was a fun reading.

I did not like this book at all. I am happy with her heros in her Navy seal and Troubleshooters series. They are strong, healthy, and morally well men. Not like Jed. If I want heros like that, I would read something more realistic, like Tennesee Williams. I will continue to read SuzanneBrockman because this is the first one of hers I did not like. I hope it is the last one.

WELL WRITTEN. SOME GRAMMER ERRORS. I LIKE THAT THE MAIN CHARACTERS HAVE TO SHOW THEIR WEAKNESS, AND THE STRUGGLE WITH ADDICTION IS ON GOING. MY FAVORITE PART IS WHEN THEY FINALLY HOOK UP AT JED'S FRIENDS HOUSE. THAT WAS ONE HOT, HOT SCENCE. THE SIDE CHARACTERS ARE GREAT! FUNNY AND WELL THOUGHTOUT. I COULD REALLY SEE THEIR PERSONALITIES COME OUT. I LOVED IT.

I really enjoyed this one from Suzanne Brockman. Course I haven't read one yet that I didn't enjoy for her. She is one of my favorite authors out today. Very touching.

I love Suzanne Brockmann, but this book lagged to me. Jed was a great character, very complex and interesting. His love interest left a lot to be desired though. I don't think it's right to chastise people for only thinking of you as a sex object if that is how you portray yourself. She was really boring and whining, but like a true master, Brockmann still made the story interesting.

The title and plot made this one sound like a predictable, contrived romance, but it turned into a story with complex characters and a few surprises.

This book was really good. It was funny, intense, romantic, tragic. It had it all.
