Chris Peck, worshipped by millions as Zeus on Olympus, desperately wants to prove to the producers of a soon-to-be-cast romantic comedy that he doesn't need fight scenes or special effects to make the jump to the big screen. Acting as the slave-for-a-day in the hit show's fan appreciation contest would cement his everyman credibility, but the winner wants nothing to do with him.
Sydney Richardson should have locked the door when a Greek god appeared on her front step at sunrise on Valentine's Day. After months of work, she needs every second to work on the fundraiser she's running for burn victims like herself and she can't afford to waste time with a TV hunk, no matter how good he looks in a toga.
Chris is captivated by Sydney and he promises to put her fundraising efforts over the top if she spends the day with him. However, just when he convinces Sydney they could have a real chance together, the movie's producers offer him an audition that would mean breaking his promises and leaving Sydney in the lurch.
The king of the gods has until sunset to prove to his new off-screen love interest that Hollywood magic and true-life romance can co-exist.

Sydney was woken very early Saturday morning by someone knocking at her door. She finally answered it when the knocking wouldn't stop. Her visitor was Chris Peck, a well known TV actor. She had won him as her "slave for the day" but there was a mix up and she hadn't been notified so she wasn't expecting him. Since Chris starred as Zeus on the show Olympus he was afraid she would want him to do something in costume or related to his role. He didn't have to worry though because Sydney had a very busy day ahead and didn't want him there at all. She had organized the Curse the Darkness volleyball game and evening gala to raise money for a charity to help burn victims and had everything planned to the minute so she didn't have time for Chris. But Chris needed the publicity from this event to help him get a movie role he desperately wanted so he convinced Sydney to let him help her. The characters in Screen Idol are well developed and likable. Chris was not a typical arrogant and pompous actor but a nice, down-to-earth man who was trying to get ahead in his career while at the same time helping others at the fundraiser. I loved that Sydney didn't fawn over Chris and didn't care who he was. She was just herself - a very organized woman who worked hard to make sure the event she planned was successful. Elle Rush’s creativity and ability to charm her audience are put together in a well written package that you won’t be able to put down. Even the cover was great! Several others commented on it while I was reading this book. I will definitely be reading more of this author's work and highly recommend Screen Idol.
