This is a Hollywood love story, ok well it's more like a story of two regular Joes looking to break into the business-but an ending with true Hollywood style. Trina Stewart and Matiu Wulf are both looking to make a name for themselves in Tinsel Town. Well trying to make a name doesn't pay the bills. Trina teaches English as a second language as her day job, but has been dreaming of breaking into the business for the last ten years-and according to her best bud what Trina really needs is a good man!
Good guy, Matiu, is in Hollywood for six weeks to take a class and head back home to New Zealand. He is not looking for any entanglements just looking to build his resume with some Hollywood credentials. But all bets are off when Trina banged on his front door.
Hollywood Ending is a really quick read. The story is easy to follow has a few surprises along the way. The language was a little stronger than what I normally read, but it added color to the story and characters. In the beginning of the book I wasn't a huge Trina, but mid-way through the story when Trina quit chasing after Matiu I really began to like her. Near the end, I felt sorry for Trina as she tries to figure out her heart. The end of story lives up to its title. I found I liked the book the more I read. I found this to be a fun lighthearted book. I can't wait to see what Lucie publishes next.

Trina Stewart is at a crossroads. She came to Hollywood ten years ago to make a career. Unfortunately, she is stuck. Stuck in a dead-end job, teaching English to foreign students. Stuck without a relationship. Stuck emotionally, unable to get over the trauma of her mother's death years before as it made her feel abandoned and unready to trust.
But maybe, maybe things are looking up. She has a new gorgeous boyfriend, a would-be actor she met when her rich friend took her out to dinner and he was their limo driver. Even more intriguing, a new man has moved in upstairs, and she felt an instant attraction to him. Matiu is a New Zealand Maori, in Hollywood to take a course in set design. He seems attracted to Trina, then they have a misunderstanding and both leave, determined to have nothing more to do with each other.
But that attraction is still there. Trina has never had two men fighting for her favors. Which should she concentrate on? Is there a chance of a permanent relationship with either of them? And what about that career she should be working on?
Lucie Simone has written an engaging, frothy romance that will entrance readers and leave them determined to discover how Trina's life will turn out. This book is recommended for readers ready for some light-hearted fun.
