About the Author
I’ve always written stories for myself, but didn’t even think of being an author until I realised that being over thirty and living in a fantasy world was a little odd. Writing those same stories for other people makes it a lot more acceptable!
By day I dress in cargo pants and boots for my not-so-glamorous job of making movies but at night I come home to my two little Princesses, in Johannesburg, South Africa, where I live, and I get to write Happy Ever Afters.

Not a Fairy Tale, Romy Sommer Genre: Romance Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews I’ve read some of Romy’s novels and enjoyed them so looked forward to this one. I enjoy contemporary romance which has a bit of drama in it and this sounded great. Nina, I liked her, was curious about her background as she’s clearly ambitious, and it seems to have started from events in her teens. She’s not the obnoxious career actress, the ones that treat others as lesser though. She and her PA get along well, though her agent and publicist were a bit advantageous whenever they chance arose. She’s after a role that she’s wanted since she first read the books many years back, but so far she’s had ditzy rom com parts, and not the kick arse type this one needs, so she has to show that she can do that. Dom agrees to train her, and they spend the next six weeks getting her fit and experienced at many different things. Dom’s a ladies man through and through, but Nina seems to be one of the few that he’s not moved in on. She’s sad in a way about that, he’s gorgeous and she’s long held a crush on him. Dom does like her, is attracted to her but thinks she deserves someone permanent, and he isn’t up for that. Love them and leave them is his motto and everyone knows that before they start. Of course once the training gets more hands on so do they, and the steam quickly builds...Dom’s four sisters like her and try to push him forward, but they both agree its the six weeks while she’s there and then move on for them. Dom needs to take time off then for personal reasons which he keeps secret, and hopefully Nina will be involved in the new film. Best laid plans though...and they find they aren’t ready to let go but each think the other is happy to move on. I really liked this read. It wasn’t as much film setting as I expected, and yet I didn’t miss that as Dom and his family and friends were such great characters. Poor Nina, my muscles ached for her when she began training, Dom certainly pushed her. He thought she’d give up, but she was tougher than an A lister usually is and surprised him. Being so close for weeks they both learned more about each other and themselves, and that was fun. I would have liked though a bit more drama, a bit more sadness at the end. That's me though – I like to wallow! Stars: Four and a half, a really fun, light hearted read. ARC provided by Netgalley and publishers.
