Reviewed by Lisa McCombs for Readers' Favorite “Is that Raine Kingston? Are you kidding me?” If she had heard it once, she had heard it a hundred times. Any and every red-blooded American woman longed for a glimpse of Raine Kingston, but better yet, an up close and personal view was a bonus. And here he was, as up close and personal as it could get. Emily Watts did her best to conceal the laughter bottled up inside her as she watched yet another overly made up yoga “enthusiast” throw herself at Raine. In an attempt at anonymity, Emily had changed to this class a while back and was happy to remain unnoticed. Couldn’t these girls understand the need for privacy, especially at a meditative yoga class? For all her concentration on staying out the limelight, Emily quickly finds herself right there, in the cross hairs of Raine Kingston’s attention. Hiding Out in Hollywood: A Hollywood Dating Story by Jennifer Farwell is a fun read for a dreary afternoon or a day at the beach. Entertaining dialogue and sincere narrative make this not only a colorful glimpse into Hollywood politics, but a refreshing romance devoid of explicit sexual content. Emily and Raine are realistic characters thrown into a glamorous lifestyle that most readers only dream of experiencing, yet the believability is vividly created, helping to reinforce the idea that celebrities are usually only famous due to publicity foreign to the average Joe. Emily and Raine are people in love who happen to be part of the “beautiful” set of Hollywood. They may be famous, but they love the same as anyone else. What could be better? The fact that there is more from Jennifer Farwell waiting in the wings.
