Hollywood Heat, Book 3

Jenna Byers approaches her first day as a background actor on Sexy M.D. with one goal in mind—impress the right people with her acting, make connections, and prove she’s a hard worker. Things go sideways when an up-close-and-personal encounter with the uber-sexy lead ends with Jenna flat on her butt, and she’s noticed for all the wrong reasons.

In all his years of acting, there’s only one thing Micah Watley hasn’t done: accidentally punch an extra in the face. Going against protocol, he hunts her down to apologize and discovers a rare phenomenon in the entertainment industry. A sweet, uncorrupted-by-Hollywood woman, whose smile grabs him by the heart—and other not-so-innocent body parts—and won’t let go.

Their attraction is instant and intense, and Micah finds himself desperate to believe the woman with the beautiful smile, hot body and naughty mind wants him, not the doors he could open for her. When the press catches on, twisting Jenna and Micah’s love story into a Hollywood scandal, they’re forced to fight for their happy ending—both on and off camera.

Warning: This book contains a hero and a heroine who don’t know a household surface they won’t get horizontal on. Sometimes vertical too. Counters, sinks, showers, sofas, washing machines, beds, walls…they’ve got all the angles covered.

For full review including excerpt and dialogue highlight, please visit Reader's Edyn at: ~~~ readersedyn (dot) blogspot (dot) com ~~~ Review: ~~~ Maybe I should actually tell you a bit about the story. Jenna (yes, yes, I do picture Lexie when I read the story) is playing an extra on Sexy M.D. when the smoking hot Micah accidentally punches her in the face. Yup. She was Starstruck – both by the hot actor and literally. LMAO! I know. I crack myself up. *clears throat*. But seriously … Micah seeks Jenna out, feeling tremendous guilt at causing her expulsion from set. And Jenna is floored by Micah’s compassion. He’s not just Sexy M.D., or the actor who plays Dr. Dale. He’s Micah the man. So Micah and Jenna start a whirlwind relationship. Along the way they hit a road block. It is Hollywood after all. It can’t be all fluffy bunnies and rainbows. Besides, aren’t romance books so much better when the characters have to recognize their own shortcomings and have to fight their way back from an epic mistake before getting that much desired HEA? EXACTLY! And both Micah and Jenna do – have to fight their way to HEA that is. ~~~ As a fan of romance, and huge fan of Grey’s, a woman who secretly reminisces occasionally about that celebrity who got away, and an avid connoisseur of smut – Starstuck fits the bill for me. The book is less than 200 pages and a lot of times this can present a problem for plotlines. Something is oftentimes missing. Heard this before, have you? Not so in this case. The story is fast-paced, with some crazy hot sex scenes, and still manages to pull off character depth. My only regret was when the story ended. ACK! However, I really loved the way everything was wrapped up in the end. A slight of hand you might say – what would you call that when applied to reading? You think one thing at first and then realize the situation is not as you first suspected. Anyone? Anyone? Beuller? ~~~ My only issue with this book is the whole condom thing. Yeah, yeah, I’m all for safe sex. And given the background with Hollywood and such, using condoms is probably highly recommended. In one scene, Micah and Jenna are getting all hot and heavy and all of a sudden Micah realizes he’s entered bare. Now, I don’t have a ton of personal experience to say for sure, but I would think that once contact has been made, stopping to run off and fetch a condom is probably not going to be within the realm of possibilities any longer. I don’t mind the whole safe sex approach; is responsible of the authors to include it within the story. And I am actually glad to see it as more of a common writing practice. But too, the books are fantasy. If the characters are so taken with each other that they can’t even make it out the door, then that glimmer of acting responsibly is reaching a bit. That said, the scene was still incredibly hot. ~~~ Oh! And did I mention that Ashleigh Raine is a Samhain author? I have had wicked good luck with Samhain authors. Just sayin’. To wrap up this review, I recommend this book as a quick, entertaining read, and circumstances within the story that many of the readers can relate to in a purely “I’ve fantasized about this before” kind of way. And, of course, smutalicious satisfaction. For those of you who like a series, Starstruck is Book 3 in the Hollywood Heat series. You can pick up the digital version of Acting on Impulse (Hollywood Heat Book 1) for only $o.99 right now. ~~~ (Digital ARC provided by author for r
