The Average Girl is a romantic comedy about a woman who sets up meetings between celebrities and fans as her job. The main thing is that these fans pretend to be just average people who are not interested in the idol they are planning to meet. I really liked the concept of this as I understand why a celebrity who not want to meet all of these raving fans who are in love with them without knowing them. There were a lot of spots in this book where I found myself laughing so hard I was crying. This is not my typical genre as I prefer sci-fi and fantasy genres, but I am so glad I gave it a shot as I really enjoyed reading about the average girl. I think my favorite spot was when Olivia gets knocked down my a celebrity while food shopping and get pulled into having coffee with him after refusing multiple times because of a conflict of interest due to her job. I was sent a free copy of this book for only my honest and unbiased review.

This is a wonderfully refreshing book. So cute and easy to read. One of those that as soon as you start it you feel compelled to continue because it’s great entertainment. I’m not overly keen on all the Hollywood pretentiousness which surrounds showbiz but this views it from an entirely new approach. Olivia has set up a flourishing business helping ordinary folk ‘meet’ the stars of their dreams without the celebs realising it is a set-up. She goes to extreme lengths to figure out their schedule so that a ‘casual’ meeting can occur. Olivia is a likeable character and I found myself willing her to succeed and be happy herself. She is after all just Miss Average .. she then occidentally bumps into Alexander in the grocery store. He is the gorgeous actor, total heart-throb and she is smitten .. but how can she continue her business without telling him what she does without putting their relationship in jeopardy. The twists and turns with her friends and love interests are both funny and cringe-worthy .. keep reading until the end to find out if Olivia gets a man! I really enjoyed this. I received it to review but it’s one I would have chosen myself if I saw it on the shelf due to the cover colour scheme. I would really like to read some more by Angelina. Thanks to the author and Pump Up Your Book Tours for the opportunity to read this in exchange for my honest opinion.

In The Average Girl, author Angelina Goode weaves an entertaining romantic comedy that follows Olivia Fowler as her business of helping star-struck clients meet their favorite Hollywood celebrities by chance in normal everyday encounters, suddenly develops a wrinkle when she unexpectedly bumps into actor Alexander Young in a grocery store. A cup of coffee leads to dates and attending a movie premiere, but what should Olivia do when a client wants to meet Alexander? What can an average girl do when her world is turned upside down, and she is faced with the decision to choose between love and business? This is such a fun book to read, the author does a wonderful job of transporting the reader into the world of Hollywood celebrities and their star-struck fans. Who hasn't fantasized about meeting their favorite celebrity, let alone in a casual everyday setting? You can't help but get drawn into Olivia's story as she tries to balance her business and her romance with Alexander, especially when she keeps her business a secret from him. I was intrigued by her extensive research into the celebrities' lives and the different types of chance meetings that she arranged for her clients, that I would definitely use her services to meet my favorite celebrities! The Average Girl is a well written lighthearted romantic comedy that has a wonderful mixture of romance and humor interwoven throughout the story. So if you are a fan of chick lit and romantic comedy novels that features the glitz and glamour of Hollywood seen through the eyes of an average girl, then this delightful book is a must read! Disclaimer: I received a copy of the book from the author / publisher in exchange for my honest review.

Reviewed by Tracy A. Fischer for Readers' Favorite An absolutely delightful and fun read by author Angelina Goode, The Average Girl was truly one of the best books I've read this summer. Follow the story of protagonist Olivia Fowler as she builds up her unique business. She orchestrates meetings with her clients, average people, with the stars they love without the star ever knowing that the meeting was set up. Olivia's studied everything there is to know about the stars her clients want to meet, and her plans go off without a hitch. But when Olivia actually does meet a star in an unexpected and unplanned way at a grocery store, and that star happens to be the handsome and charming Alexander Young, things start to change. As her relationship with Alexander progresses, she learns that there's more to a star and their life than just what the public sees. And when Olivia's best client makes a request to meet Alexander, she realizes that if she sets up the meeting, she might lose Alexander forever. Will it be her business or her heart? I loved this book. Loved. It. The perfect book for the chick lit genre, The Average Girl was fun, funny, sweet, romantic and witty all at once. Author Angelina Goode has done an amazing job at developing characters that a reader will truly enjoy getting to know. Her ability to write a book that will keep you turning the pages, laughing and tearing up is second to none. I cannot recommend The Average Girl any more highly. I sincerely hope that Angelina Goode is hard at work on her next novel. I, for one, will be lined up to get it when it is released.
