Overview

Celebrity and reality are about to collide!

Holly Klein is an A-list celebrity with an army of assistants. Leo Monroe is a smart-talking DJ from the streets. She lives on Mulholland Drive; he lives on. . .someone else's sofa. But when Leo rescues Holly from a mugger, their two worlds collide, literally.

Such a heroic act deserves a reward, and Holly's producer comes up with a brilliant suggestion: feature Leo on Holly's hit makeover show. New image, new life — in just a few weeks! Leo accepts only so he can stay in Holly's pool house. Meanwhile, Holly is stunned to realize she prefers rough-and-ready Leo to her usual slick, Armani-clad companions. Sleeping with him once is an accident; soon, however, it becomes a secret habit she can't seem to break.

Great sex is one thing, but could a Hollywood star and a busking Brit ever seriously work as a couple? Holly starts to question whether the meaning of life really is a Hermes Birkin handbag and an invite to the hottest showbiz parties. Leo might be having a makeover, but is it Holly who really needs to change?

Tyne O'Connell, novelist, screenwriter and former professional gambler, was born in Australia. She now lives in Mayfair, London, also dividing her time between New York And L.A. This is her first novel for Red Dress Ink.

On top of her boyfriend Ted¿s revelations about her to Star, ¿Her Voice¿ magazine acclaims that makeover show host Holly Klein has been voted the ¿shallowest woman in Hollywood¿. When she goes to run some errands, people curse her and someone steals her pursue. Homeless Leo Monroe recovers her purse, diaphragm and all.---- Holly¿s producer and perhaps only real friend Nancy Catkin thinks Leo is perfect to provide a make over to Holly¿s battered image. The plan is to give the street hero a make over on her program. Leo reluctantly agrees thinking that this might be his ticket back to England and besides it will gives him a few weeks of luxury in her elite home with a pool. Neither anticipated an attraction between the glitter star and the pauper, but the sex deserves its own square on the Walk of Fame as even Holly wonders whether the relationship deserves decades beyond her show.---- Chick lit fans will appreciate this lighthearted Hollywood romp between the ¿Princess¿ and the Pauper. Though the plot seems inane yet amusing on the surface, the story line has a serious undertone involving the homeless that works well because of Leo contrasts the two worlds, minutes apart yet zillions of lifestyles away. Thus Leo undergoes a physical makeover, but the shallowest person on the planet is actually the one that changes as he and his misfit associates touch the untouchable heart of Holly.---- Harriet Klausner
