Phoebe Fairchild didn't have a great first year of college. In fact, it stunk! She realized she'd chosen a major, physics, that didn't suit her. And worse than that, a boyfriend who was a first-class jerk.
When she visited her mother in New York for Spring Break, Phoebe decided that a transfer to a new university, a thousand miles from her current one, and a new major were definitely in order. With a little assistance from her mother's friend, Jack Stevens, Phoebe worked a transfer to NYU and better still, an internship at a major TV network.
Phoebe moved into her mother's old apartment, made a new friend, and figured out the Big Apple. But one of her biggest challenge was to be her internship assignment. Working in Public Relations, she had just gotten comfortable with the daily routine when she's suddenly assigned to be the Personal Assistant to mega star, Chase Smythe. Since she was nine years old, Phoebe had been starry-eyed for the blond haired, blue eyed actor. Her room had been practically wallpapered in Chase Smythe pullouts from the teen magazines.
But Chase Smythe wasn't the charming, sexy actor on TV and in the movies he starred in. He was still as good looking as ever, but seemed that over the years, stardom had jaded him. In real life, Chase was full of himself, lazy and left a path of destruction in his wake that had been well concealed by his former 'handlers.' Now it was Phoebe's job to rein him in.
Nonetheless, there is a spark. Phoebe was warned to not cave into his charms, as fake as they are, but there's more than just his charm. There's chemistry. Is it real? Or is it an act? Will Chase let Phoebe in to see the real person, not the just TV personality? Did she even stand a chance with him? Especially as she faced new challenges herself? Or was being with Chase just a dream?

She's done it again! I so loved this book! I'll admit after reading the first two books I wanted more Jack - he IS in this one some too. However, I was quite interested in learning more about Beth's daughter Phoebe and Isabelle Peterson delivered! Phoebe is coming out of a horrible relationship with her ex and looking for a fresh start in "The Big City". She gets an internship and lands an unexpected PR job with the sexy heart throb Chase Smythe. After crushing on this celebrity for years, she quickly realizes he's not much different than her ex. He seems to be the lazy, cocky, playboy he's rumored to be in all the gossip magazines. Determined to get through the next couple of weeks "babysitting" a spoiled movie star, what happens when Chase turns out to not be what he seems? And how will Phoebe deal with an unexpected surprise? I loved the fact that the first two books were written from the POV of an older, more mature MC. I completely related to how Beth felt and the decisions she made. As much as I loved those books, I loved this one just as much. This one just "cemented" the fact that Isabelle Peterson is an amazing author! I cannot wait to read what happens in the next book!!
This is the 3rd book in the Dream series and it follows Elizabeth Fairchild's daughter from Ditching the Dream as this follows her daughter's summer internship before her 2nd year of college at NYU. I must say at first I felt a little weird reading about the sex life of Beth's daughter. I kind of felt like a little bit of a pervert. But once I got past that this book was amazing. Phoebe proves to be just as strong willed as her mom. She's feisty and determined to get her job done even among the whispers that she was handed the job because of connections with Jack Stevens. She's loving NY and her new freedom there. When given the assignment to be Chase Smythe's assistant she is in shock. She's had his posters hanging on her wall since she was 9 yrs old. Despite all Chase's efforts to deter Phoebe from doing her job, she's determined to keep it professional. Great book, great characters. Isabelle Peterson is definitely one of my favorites. I can't wait to read the next in the series.
