Overview

Wild child Jade Easler has never met a dick she didn't like, but there's only been one she thought about keeping. And now he's back in town...right after she's slept with charming Hollywood up-and-comer, Dean Hartley. The fastest way to get her ex's attention? Show up on the arm of a sexy younger man. She just hopes Dean is up for the task of fake boyfriend...

When he hooked up with his beautifully curvy photographer, Dean thought he'd only get the one night she promised. But when she needs help convincing a former flame she's ready to settle down, who is he to argue? He'll get to show her-in as many ways as possible-that giving up crazy, hot sex for a stale, predictable life isn't what she wants. And prove that what she needs is him.

Bright lights, big city ...love triangle? Julie Particka is known for her sexy stories. Though Playing the Perfect Boyfriend does not lack for heat, it is abundant in laughs and tackles some serious stereotyping. For instance, I thought it was great that the woman was not getting played as much as she was pulling the strings. Usually, it's the opposite. I also liked the hint of younger man, older woman. Another stereotype that is usually the other way around. I received Playing the Perfect Boyfriend in exchange for an honest review. It's not rocket science, it's great entertainment.

This is book # 3 in the Gone Hollywood series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding and enjoyment I recommend reading this series in order. Jade and Dean meet when he comes to her studio to get his picture taken by her. She needs help to trick an ex-boyfriend, and Dean comes to her rescue. Then he gets to know her, and thinks she is making a mistake. Dean cannot help but fall for Jade. Only she doesn't seem to want forever with anyone but her ungrateful ex. Can he change her mind before its too late? This story was full of sparks and heat. The characters banter was so fun. I enjoyed every page. I cannot wait to see what the author come up with next! Great series! ***This ARC copy was given by Netgalley and its publishers for an honest review only.

Playing the Perfect Boyfriend, Gone Hollywood 3,  Julie Particka Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews Genre:  Romance,    I really wanted to like this book, I’d loved the first in the series, somehow missed book two and was hoping this would be as good (for me) as book one. Well, it was an OK read, just didn’t have that magic spark though that the first story had. Jade, I just couldn’t reconcile her as she is to the person she needed to be for Isak. She’s so full of fun, full of life and takes every minute as it comes – a real grab life by the balls and run with it woman. So why on earth did she think she’d work in a relationship with Isak, who wanted a quiet and sedate wife, someone happy to be a mum and let him have all the limelight. I couldn’t see why they’d ever got together before, and why she wanted to connect again with him. I know her friends are all getting in relationships, becoming settled but kids hadn’t ever been on her horizon so why now? Dean...mmmnn...what a real man he was. Older than his years mentally he was perfect for Jade, but she just couldn’t seem to see it. The sensuality between them is off the charts – did she really want to give that up for a life of sedate, missionary sex with Isak? He sounded like the kind of man who details sex in his diary along with other dates and spontaneous sex just doesn’t happen. Sun 2pm – golf , Tues 7pm- squash ,  Thursday 12pm- lunch with university colleagues, Sat 10pm Sex....Dullsville all the way and not Jade at all.   I loved Jade and Dean together, loved the way he let her be herself and she let him be Dean, not his actor persona he has to show everyone else. Then of course all gets turned on its head when both have a change of plan and rethink. I loved the heat in this, adored Dean but Jade – well, for an intelligent woman who’d worked so hard to make her profession a success I found it difficult to believe she’d willingly give it all up for Isak. There’s no chemistry between them,nothing, they’ve not met for two years and yet she wants to abandon her life, move to another country to be with him? Just didn’t feel right or believable for me and that's where the story let down as its a huge part of the plot. :-( Stars: Three, an ok read. ARC supplied by Netgalley and publisher

This is another quick, sexy, well written read from Ms. Particka. This is book three in the Gone Hollywood series and could be read as a stand alone. However, it does include the characters from the first two books. (I really enjoy the previous characters having a part in the other couples' HEA's.) I didn't like this story as well as the others but it was still very enjoyable. The chemistry between Jade and Dean is sizzling. They were both easy to relate to and likable. I loved how Jade was a bit older than Dean but not so much older that she would be considered a "cougar." Definitely recommend. ARC received from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Not a favorite of mine but overall a pretty good read. It's well written and has some strong characters. Myself, I just couldn't warm up to these characters, especially Jade. I found her to be a bit obnoxious and couldn't see why a handsome younger successful guy like Dean would be interested in her. There was obviously great sexual chemistry between Jade and Dean but other than that I didn't think they worked that well together.

This review is based on an ARC provided by the author and/or the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinion. This is a note to the author: Honey if you EVER need anyone to give you a R2R you look me up. For everyone else: That was an AMAZING read. OMG it was adorable and the spicy sexiness of their role-playing..... This story had a very strong female that wasn't afraid of speaking her wishes. The utter confidence I want when I grow up. And the sweet, sexy, strong alpha male who got to dominate her in the bedroom...honey SIGN ME UP!

The minute that Jade Easler learns that the "one that got away" is back in town she starts to devise a special plan to land him back into her life and hopefully back into her bed. She decides the best way to win his attention is to make an appearance on the arm of another man, namely another successful actor, so she proposes her idea to her latest conquest actor Dean Hartley. Dean agrees to help her out, and she thinks there is no way her plan can fail now... or can it? Sometime things tend to get a little complicated when you begin to mix business with pleasure... After spending one night with famed Jade Easler, Dean Hartley is quite certain that one night with her didn't even scratch the surface of what he had in mind for her, and he immediately wants more... problem is she doesn't do repeats. He is desperate to spend more time with her, so when she proposes he act as the new man in her life to make her ex jealous, he jumps at the chance in hopes that he can convince her to forget about the ex and give them a chance. Now he just has to find a way to prove to her that he can be the man she should spend forever with... This was my second visit to the Gone Hollywood series, and I have to say that this visit was even hotter than the first, with each page I turned the hotter it got and the more my need for a fan grew!! Ms. Particka definitely packed this one with plenty of sizzle!! I loved the characters in this story so much, they came with a realistic quality that made them seem very relatable, they were also equipped with big personalities that shined through, and a smoldering chemistry that could not be denied. It was refreshing to read a story with a strong female heroine, that was able to stand toe to toe with the alpha male character in the story, and give him just as much as he gave her, Jade was something else!! Overall it is a fun read, filled with eccentric characters, and lots of blush worthy moments! I highly recommend you give this one a try....you will be in for a real reading treat!!
