'Wilder has created a gem of a novel with characters who unfold in complex and unexpected ways. The grounded Hollywood story utilizes a perfectly paced slow-burn romance, and at the end there's a winking nod to the entire journey' Library Journal ⭐ STARRED REVIEW ⭐
Two co-stars with a complex history reunite to film the final season of a beloved paranormal drama in this tension-filled will they won't they romance from the author of How to Fake It in Hollywood.
Onscreen, they're in love.
Offscreen, they can't stand each other.
As the stars of a hit paranormal TV show, Lilah Hunter and Shane McCarthy spent years pining for each other onscreen . . . until Lilah ditched the show in the hopes of becoming a movie star. With no such luck, she's back to film the much-hyped ninth and final season, in which Lilah and Shane's characters will get together at last.
But returning means facing the biggest reason she left: Shane. Ever since their secret behind-the-scenes fling imploded at the end of season one, the two of them have despised each other.
Now, under pressure to give the fans the happy ending they've been waiting for and with their post-show careers on the line, Lilah and Shane will have to grit their teeth and play nice.
But if they're not careful, they might get blindsided by one final twist: a real happy ending of their own

Wilder (How to Fake It in Hollywood) takes readers behind the scenes of a television shoot in this fun contemporary romance. Lilah Hunter and Shane McCarthy were both unknowns when cast in the paranormal soap Intangible, but their powerful on-screen chemistry made them overnight sensations—and led to a secret fling that ended in disaster. After their breakup, working together was a nightmare, and their constant sniping pushed Lilah to quit the show after season five. Unfortunately, Lilah's career hasn't taken off the way she hoped since leaving Intangible, which also suffered without her, so she allows herself to be lured back to boost ratings for the ninth and final season, even if it does mean reuniting with Shane. On set, it's immediately clear that these sparring hearts are still wildly attracted to each other—but with insecurities and bitterness on both sides, is their relationship doomed to fail yet again? Though Lilah comes across as a bit of a diva at first, readers will warm up to her, and Shane is extremely easy to root for. Fans of Emily Henry and Christina Lauren should check this out.
