Mark Lawler has always imagined the world as a movie. With his overactive imagination, he can’t help equating life and art. Currently, he’s living the dream: successful actor, beautiful wife, and he works with his best friend, television heartthrob Zach Pericles. The problem is a certain contingent of fans are convinced Mark and Zach are really in love.
When a compromising photo of them leaks to the press, Mark’s life spins out of control. The show’s executive producer plans to kill off Mark’s character, and Mark faces unemployment and life as a single man. He turns to Ross Lockhart, an old acquaintance, to help him pick up the pieces.
Ross has to be the most frustrating man Mark’s ever known, but he’s levelheaded and wise for his years, and Mark envies the honest life he leads. Maybe Ross can teach Mark a thing or two about finding his own happily ever after.

Nothing in Tinseltown is ever as it seems. A well written romance with complex characters, an intricately developed story line, and raw emotional exploration. The Hollywood Version is more than a love story. It's about honesty, making the right choices, and being true to who you are. Readers will fall in love with Mark as they follow him on this unique journey of self discovery. A copy of The Hollywood Version was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.
I receive this book free in exchange of an honest review. This was a really good read. There are several intertwined relationships in this story that make it a light fun read.It's about actors and their true personas and what they put on for the public. The relationships in this story are between Mark and his wife, Alex, Mark and his best friend and co-worker in a TV series Zach, and Mark and a old high school mate Ross. The Bro-mance between Mark and Zach is questioned in the media as to 'Are they together romantically?' and they and Alex play into it for the publicity. Well something happens and things go south. The marriage ends, the best friends end, the job ends, and Mark with help from Ross rethinks his life. This could have been a really angst book, but the way it was written it wasn't. I think that was because we really didn't get much about what was going on in any ones head except for Mark. So Alex and Zach are left to be fairly superficial even though in some instances you were led to believe there was more going on than was being said. I wouldn't usually read a story about the rich and famous, but this was a nice surprise. There was enough of the normal to ease the get over yourself aspect. I think I'll check out another of this authors books.
