Once again Sasha has made me giddy with joy. This book made me swoon and fall in love all over again. Helen has been pining over Joseph since she first laid eyes on him 5 years ago. After spending so many years completely in love with him, she finally decided enough was enough and she was over him. Her heart as other ideas. One night while she was babysitting, Joe shows up while she is having a dance off with Will. The minute she sees him she begin an inner war over being over him or not. Who can blame her when he is described as "He was still a solid six foot four, broad and lean. His warm brown eyes were so gentle and soulful, deep and witty." Helen's brother Josh and Joe's sister Claire decide to have Joe stay with Helen since she is single and lives alone. Soon enough Helen is reminded of all the reasons she fell for him in the first place. While Joe was in Africa, they were writing back and forth and had decided to pretend to be dated so that Helen would not have to worry about men she did not want anything to do with. After a children's dance recital, Helen is confronted with Chris who can't seem to get a hint. Joe and Helen make a show of showing Chris that she is off the market and all his. With the wedding around the corner, Helen is a bit freaked out because she has been sick for months. The day of the wedding she goes to see a doctor to confirm her worst fear. As Joe and Helen quickly grow closer and start to fall for one another, she confides in him about her health issues. Joe being a doctor asks Helen if he can go with her to her doctor appointment. Helen never expects the news she receives. As Helen is adjusting to all the new changes in her life, Joe has to go back to Africa. Helen is left to break the news of her new life to her dad and step-mom alone when the unimaginable happens. This book was incredible. I love all the characters; especially Joe. Joe is so funny and adorable. I love that he blushes and is just so stinking cute. He is so passionate. He didn't let ANYTHING stand between him and what/who he wanted. I could go on all day long about how amazing he is. From the very first book Helen's character was strong. She is compassionate and loving and everyone is drawn to her. When all hell breaks loose she is still just as selfless and doesn't let it tear her to pieces. I recommend this book to everyone who loves a sweet romance and just enough heartbreak to make you keep turning the pages.

I loved this book!  The conclusion to the Red Carpet Series by Sasha Summers left me wanting this series and the characters to continue to live on. The heroine, Helen (sister to Josh, the hero from the first book) is surprised when her heartthrob crush Joseph is back in California for his mom's wedding...to Helen's dad.  He's older now, and so serious from his time spent working as a doctor in a third world country...and he's even more devastatingly handsome.  He needs a place to stay, her roommate is on tour, so what else can she do but offer him the extra room in her apartment?  Still drawn to him, she thinks he may like her...but the results of a health scare leave her in a life-changing position. Will he leave her to deal on her own? Or stand by her, no matter what the consequences. Sasha Summers has once again written a love story that will make you laugh, cry, and sigh.  Each book quickly becomes my favorite as I read it. They are definitely books I will read over and over again.  I highly recommend that you read the series and fall in love along with Helen and Joe (and Claire & Josh from Book 1, and Jen & Gunner from Book 2!).

Hollywood Homecoming is the third book in Sasha Summers’ Red Carpet Series and sadly, the first in the series that I have read.  Well, I can safely say that after reading this book, I now own all three books in the series because this book has got me hooked!  I absolutely loved, and devoured, this book! If you asked Helen, she would tell you herself that she was totally content with her life.  She was a make-up artist in Hollywood, working with special effects and amazing people, she had a wonderful family and was dubbed the favorite aunt to her nieces and nephews.  The only piece of the puzzle missing was from her love life.  But, she was working on that.  She was finally coming to terms that the man she’s been in love with since her teen years, Joseph, would never return her affections, and she was certain that she was finally over him.  He was a doctor working in Africa and hadn’t been around in two years and that time away has helped strengthen her resolve to move on. But when he returns for their parents wedding, she realizes how wrong she was in thinking she was over him.  Her heart knew the truth…she would never, ever be able to forget Joseph. Joseph is back and realizes just how much he’s missed in the past two years.  Things have changed.  The kids were bigger, he’d missed too many birthdays and holidays and has vowed to never miss that much time away from his family again.  They all had meant too much.  One person especially….only she had no idea how much she meant to him and how much he looked forward to the letters she sent him while he was away.  Would he have the courage to tell her how he felt? Helen and Joseph have a long standing history that can either help or hinder the secret feelings the both harbor….and now, when they just might each be wiling to admit their feelings, they are blindsided with a situation that will change everything. My interest in this story was piqued after reading the synopsis and it only grew after I started reading.  I adored Helen. ADORED! I don’t normally fall in love with the heroine in a story….I also don’t get along with a lot of real life women (ha!) but I absolutely love Helen!  She is so quirky and honest and refreshing.  She had me laughing at her sarcasm and had me bawling my eyes out during the last few chapters.  Full-on, tears running down my face, sobbing.  She is totally a gal I would love to hang out with and truly appreciates the love and goodness in life and looks for it in even the most dismal of situations.  Joseph is an all-around great catch.  He’s a handsome, intelligent, philanthropic doctor who has the biggest heart and loves without limit.  He is a guy anyone would feel lucky to know and is a prince among men. The cast of characters, as a whole, is stellar.  An enjoyable and loving family anyone would want to be a part of.  As I had said earlier, I haven’t read the previous two books in the series but that didn’t affect how much I loved this story.  I never felt I was missing something or didn’t quite understand a reference.  I really appreciate when an author is able to do that for a reader.  You can enjoy one, or all, in the series without feeling lost. There were more than a few memorable moments in this book and more than a few dreamy-sigh-worthy moments that I cherished…but the last few chapters absolutely slayed me.  I was a WRECK!  Talk about speed-reading to make sure things worked out ok….WHEW!  I can’t give you any spoilers so you’ll just have to trust me on this one. Hollywood Homecoming was a title I texted to my best friend the second I finished reading it with the: “you MUST get this book right this instant!” text.  Yep, I loved it that much.  Thank you, Sasha, for an emotional and charming read filled with characters I won’t soon forget.

Sasha has written a great story.  I hadn't read the first two books, but it really didn't matter with this one. This book stood on its own.  I have been given the first two as well and have added them to my to be read pile to go back and read list. The characters were so great and believable, I just loved the story and couldn't put it down! I instantly fell in love with the world that Sasha had written! I love when an author creates a series that I can instantly connect with and become a part of, and she defiantly did that here! Helen is used to being the favorite aunt, and has been in love with Joseph for a while, but she is over him, until she sees him at her parents wedding, and realizes, maybe she isn't so over him! And Joseph keeps giving her these looks, so maybe he isn't so in the friend zone either? Helen and Joseph are two characters you find yourself cheering for. You just want these to crazy kids to get together and make beautiful babies.  I mean, they are obviously the favorites in the family for a reason! A quick fun read, this would make a great rainy afternoon read, especially now with fall coming on...

Hollywood Homecoming a beautiful romance of second chances, believing in yourself, and taking a risk to get your happy ever after. Helen has watched as each of her family members have found that someone that completes them. She is so happy for them, but in the end she is still single, still alone, and still without the man that she loves more than anything. Joseph left when they were young. A doctor on a mission to save the world. They have been writing each other for years, but Helen has never stopped loving him, but being regulated to the “friend” category has hurt more than she realizes. When she sees them at their parents wedding she realizes that her feelings have not changed. When Joseph sees Helen again he is captivated by her. He has never forgotten her and now he will do anything to win her. From the very start this story draws you in. Helen is such a beautiful, smart, and independent women. She loves with her whole heart, is loyal, and wants to belong to Joseph with her entire soul. The connection between Joseph and Helen is soft and beautiful with a slight edge. This is a romance that will melt the very center of your heart! I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
