    Lizzie Kent ran away from the Hollywood spotlight and her porn s

    Lizzie Kent ran away from the Hollywood spotlight and her porn star mother. She wanted to help people. She became a nurse and started a new life working at Seacliff. Now she is trapped. Ash Kincaid is there as a patient. He was her bodyguard and her first love. Now he is famous. He is Tinsel Town's hottest action star. He forces her to be his nurse. He wants to know why she left him. Where do they go from here? I loved the chemistry between Lizzie and Ash. They had a past that neither could forget. Their interaction was touching and at times painful. The author did a wonderful job portraying their insecurities and their passion. The ending was very satisfying. I enjoyed the setting and the behind the scenes feel of the story. A great book with a romantic ending. Jackie Ashenden has done it again.

    I'm a fan of Jackie's "Talking Dirty.." series, so I was looking forward to seeing what her new series was about. Although this book had some funny moments, it had a little more drama to it than the previous series. Here you have the H, working to enter and later achieving the fame and fortune, and the heroine desperately trying to escape it after what I would consider the most mortifying incident ever, trying to figure out if they could fit into each others lives years later.

    Coco Dawn (yes, worst name ever but totally fits the mother/daughter story) has spent the last 11 years establishing herself as Lizzie. After being nothing more than an press accessory to her porn star mother, living thru a reality tv show as a teenager, and having her most private moment put out on national tv left home and became someone else. After getting a job cleaning at Seacliffe Medical, she went to nursing school, and has become the perfect nurse. She's happy. Mostly.

    Ash was a security guard for Misty Dawn's estate. He had a dream of becoming a big famous actor, and fell in love for the first time with Misty's daughter Coco. He understood her embarrassment, but couldn't understand how she could just leave and tell him not to look for her. He spent years worrying and wondering about her. When he gets slashed with a knife and is rushed to Seacliffe, he recognizes her instantly and figures it's time for some answers. He blackmails her into being his nurse by threatening to complain to her boss. The boss that put her thru nursing school.

    I'm hoping the next book is about the DR at Seacliffe!!

    Can a love survive eleven years of absence?

    Through a twist of fate, Ash has now become a big Hollywood super star. Seeking treatment after a fight that leaves his face cut and bleeding, he seeks plastic surgery at an exclusive clinic for the stars. To his surprise, the nurse he runs into is the girl he fell in love with eleven years ago.

    No Spoilers! Lizzie left Ash after losing her virginity to him in order to find privacy from the press. Seeking anonimity, she changed her name to Lizzie Kent and buried her past so deep that meeting Ash at the clinic leaves her reeling.

    What happens next makes for a surprisingly interesting and enjoyable story of love denied and dreams fulfilled. Do not miss the truly sexy erotic scenes between these two. This is what Hollywood romances are made of!

    I have to say I was quite surprised by this one. I’m not overly fond of the male characters in Jackie’s books, because they tend to be a bit douchy. One in particular that I didn’t like was Caleb from Talking Dirty With The Player. I could not stand the guy. So I went into this book with a lot of trepidation. And it only grew when I realised the male character in this book was a big Hollywood star. Did I give a huge sigh of relief when he turned out to be hot, sexy, funny and sweet? He wasn’t douchy at all. In fact he was basically perfect, a bit narcissistic, but when your face and body is your money maker, who wouldn’t be?
    Lizzie, or Elizabeth, or Coco, or whatever, really didn’t float my boat. She was everything I don’t like my female characters to be. Timid, scared and downright annoying. She tries to hide from her past instead of facing up to it. So your mother is a porn star? It could have been worse. So you losing your virginity was aired on some porn reality show some ten years ago? Well okay that’s a bit harsh, but hell own up to it and people will get over it. No-one makes that big a deal out of Macaulay Culkin and Lindsay Lohan’s mess up anymore. And hey, Kim Kardashian became famous for her sex tape. I admit, Lizzie had her moments and she is mostly likable, but she just wasn’t what I expected.
    The story was, for the better part, good. But there weren’t any major moments that I could say wowed me. It wasn’t a storyline that kept me reading until the early hours of the morning and I found that I could very easily put it down. Nevertheless, I tend to always rotate back to Jackie’s work because her male characters are so freaking HOT!

    This book just missed it a bit for me.  When Ash blackmails Lizzie to spend time with him, he became a not very nice guy in my book.  The fact that Lizzie went along with it was even worse.  She knew his plan would fail if she just spoke up about it.  The redeeming factor for both of them didn't happen until the very end - after they had their big fight and basically swore to never speak to each other again.  It was all just a little too dramatic for my taste.  Perhaps that's just what you get when you have a movie star as a main character.

    I liked the couple, we can see from their first encounter all the sparks flying, but I did not liked the way Ash just wanted Lizzie to accept things. Lizzie suffered a lot and her family never treated well, she wanted love and Ash was the only one to really understand her in those moments years ago, but now he sounds like all those playboys from Hollywood that only care for theselves.




    I liked the changes he showed during the time Lizzie spend in his house. But he didn’t showed a difference from all those others actors until the last second. I wanted to like him more, because Lizzie had a very difficult life and deserved someone to love her completely, but Ash didn’t showed that much love, more like passion.

    As a bit of a fan of Jackie Ashenden's work I jumped at the chance to review her latest book. And I am so glad I did.


    Hollywood Blackmail is the first of a new multi-author series from Entangled's Indulgence line.

    I'm going to admit at the start i thought Ash was a bit of a self important jerk and i was wishing Lizzie would just tell him where to go. But that is probably the great thing about this book because by the end i was totally rooting (cheering of the Americans) for Ash.

    I also loved Lizzie's back story in this era of reality tv it seemed very pertinent to me.

    The author quote on the cover totally sums up how i feel about this book. Definitely worth a read.

    Overall i give this 4.5 out of 5

    Hollywood Blackmail. Jackie Ashenden Review from Jeannie Zelos B

    Hollywood Blackmail. Jackie Ashenden
    Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
    Another Entangled novel, I thought this sounded fun with the “blackmail” element, but it didn't work as well for me as I hoped. I wasn't expecting a deep, dark novel, but this was really a bit too light and fluffy for me. I thought the blackmail elements would be stronger than the line it was, darker, more evil, more perversive. It wasn't really blackmail as I expected, more just heavy persuasion. There was lots of happy and fun, but I also needed a bit more sad to balance it and that was lacking :( I love some angst, and just didn't get it. There was a downside part of the romance, but not that much it felt to me, and not enough to make me feel really sad for Lizzie and Ash.
    I liked Lizzie, understood her fears, she'd worked hard to get where she was, and didn't want to give it up. Ash, he was a Hollywood star but without that awful Star persona that we often see, and having found Lizzie he wasn't letting her go....but was there a mid point where they could meet? Well, the story finds their fears, their good and bad points and makes the reader wonder “what would I do faced with that situation” Me? I really don't know – I'm an unashamed romantic, but we've seen so many people parted by the stress fame brings, so I could understand both points of view.
    Stars: three and a half, a fun read, but not really one that grabbed me and made me want to keep reading.

    I'm no stranger to Jackie Ashenden's books and I have to confess

    I'm no stranger to Jackie Ashenden's books and I have to confess to loving her Talking Dirty series. Question is, can the debut in her newest series live up to her previous offerings? Well with a sexy Hollywood heartthrob and a sweet-natured determined nurse, who just so happen to have some history, the answer is a resounding yes.

    Ash Kincaid, said sexy Hollywood heartthrob, ends up in LA's medical facility for the rich and famous where he crosses paths with their most dedicated nurse, Lizzie Kent. A few stitches later and he's managed to irritate her, stir up her past and blackmail her a little bit...

    Aside from the fact that she knows how to bring us a man to fall in love with and a lady to drive him that little bit crazy, what I love about Jackie's books are the little surprises she injects. And this is what made Hollywood Blackmail a captivating read as the characteristics and histories of our leading man and his lady weren't exactly what I was expecting. With sexual tension, wit, passion and frustration combined with romantic and touching moments it was an excellent start to the series and whilst I would have liked an epilogue, I'm hoping Ash and Lizzie make an appearance in future books. Future books that will definitely be on my reading radar.

    I received an ARC of this courtesy of Entangled Publishing for an honest and unbiased opinion.
