Landing a writing gig in Hollywood was just as difficult as becoming an actor, and something Claire Becker had learned the hard way.
Sure, she didn’t have to conform to ridiculous beauty standards and give up her love for raw cookie dough, but the sting of rejection burned all the same. The only things that kept her sane were her two amazing roommates and her guilty pleasure—writing fan-fiction.
Getting lost in her own world, she’d forget that she had yet to land her dream job, and instead spent time with her dream man—Nick Larsson. Well, at least in the literary sense. Too bad he wasn’t aware or an active participant—her fictional love life, outstanding.
Tall, good-looking and sexy beyond comprehension, Nick Larsson not only had a famous last name—and four equally smoldering brothers—but was talented beyond belief. A star on the rise with a critically acclaimed series, his body and face were what fantasy scripts—and dreams—were made of. Made for some pretty steamy writing opportunities too.
And yes, it was probably “wrong” for Claire to objectify him, but it wasn’t like anyone knew about it. Just her, and her two amazing, supportive roommates.
Or at least they were amazing and supportive, and bound to be missed after Claire killed them.
In a moment of unexplained insanity, one of them —or both, each as bad as the other—sent her latest installments to the man himself.
Cue panic of epic proportions.
All Claire needed to do was sneak into his apartment and retrieve the misappropriated story before Nick, or anyone else, read it and mistook her for a creepy stalker. Although, breaking and entering probably wouldn’t convince anyone to the contrary either.
Claire was going to get the best material of her life, or end up with a restraining order. Either way, the story was getting a hell of lot more interesting.

Review: #1 Series book 5: #1 Muse
#1 Muse by T. Gephart is the 5th standalone romance in her #1 Series . The books in the series have interconnecting characters but can be read as standalones. This is the 2nd book I have read from this author and I am absolutely enamored with this series already. The story was funny, sexy, witty and an absolute page-turner. Told in single POV from Claire's perspective, this was a fabulous read.
Claire is a screen-writer with an obsession. What is the obsession you ask? Nick Larsson - Hollywood actor, and the man of her dreams and object of her fan-fic stories she writes on the side for her own enjoyment (and that of her two wonderful roommates). When one of the roommates decides to give Nick a copy of a story at a wrap party it's up to Claire to stealthily retrieve it from his home by whatever means necessary. He was NEVER supposed to read about "Nick & Blaire" and she is going to die from mortification if she doesn't retrieve it ASAP by whatever means necessary.
Well-written and well-paced, laced with humor and sexy times, the story is lighthearted with just enough angst for a few stomach flips and to keep it interesting. I absolutely adored this story. Enjoy!
Another fantastic read by T. Gephart!
Another great book in this series. My overall second favorite book by T. Gephart. Nick was sexy and so sweet, while Claire is hilarious. Their chemistry and banter kept me hooked until the end. Definitely a lot of laugh out loud moments and heat. I highly recommend this read.
