The long-distance love story about workplace rivalries and creative burnout
From Kristina Adams, author of the bestselling What Happens in… series comes the fourth book in the prequel companion series Hollywood Gossip.
Jump back in time to when Tate and Jack were in their late teens, trying to transition from child stars to megastars.
Follow them on their journey as they become friends, enemies, and lovers alongside familiar faces from the What Happens in Hollywood Universe and new ones you’re going to love.
My new action movie is exactly the kind of role I need to finally shake my image as a child star.
But when judgmental colleagues and a megalomaniac director bring up past issues I’d long thought buried, will the price be too high for my mental health?
I wish I could talk to Jack about what’s going on at work, but with me filming in Australia, and him working in the States, it’s hard for us to connect. Are we drifting apart all over again?
I can’t write. Not since leaving Ibiza. Something about hitting rock bottom has exhausted my creative energy. And if I can’t write music, who am I?
Could a career break be just what I need? Or will the lack of focus exacerbate my addiction?
Usually I’d go to Tate for advice. She’s my best friend. But after how she found me in Ibiza, the last thing I want to do is burden her all over again.
At a time when the world seems to be against them, will these two lovebirds find solace in each other, or will they grow further apart than ever?
Hollywood Destiny is part four of the Hollywood Gossip series by Kristina Adams. If you’re looking for a serial will they/won’t they romantic drama about love, hate, and the pressures of fame, you won’t find one that’s more of a rollercoaster read than this.
An Ever-Changing Relationship
I was given an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
In this fourth installment of the Hollywood Gossip Series, we meet up with Tate and Jack after the Ibiza crisis. Jack has been traumatized by the terrible ending to his DJ stint in the party capital of the world. After suffering from alcohol withdrawal in the elements with no way to get home, he has lost his desire to write any kind of music.
Tate, meanwhile, might finally have a chance to shed her child-star roots now that she is free of her management company. Her new manager has found her an action movie with a great script, and so she flies to Australia to get started. But things are not great on set, with a jealous costar, a megalomaniacal director, and bad treatment from most of the staff, Tate realizes she may be in over her head.
The separate stories of Jack and Tate are so wildly different that is difficult to reconcile. They each have so many problems. Tate begins to struggle with food, while Jack struggles with the ever-present temptation of alcohol to numb his pain. Their issues come to a head, and their will-they-won’t-they might be doing more damage than either of them suspects.
The emotions run high, and even when they fight with each other, you can relate to both sides. Kristina Adams has created another brilliant book with so much feeling. The ups and downs are brutal, but they change the characters in a meaningful way. Their struggles feel so realistic, and you will come to care for both of these characters. I would recommend this to those who want to go even deeper into this wonderful universe. Adams has created the most amazing world, and you will come to care deeply about everything that happens to Jack Cuoco and Tate Gardener.
Jack and Tate are back but this time with more insight than ever
I love all the sub characters in their lives
especially now that Jack has his Aunt back

Kristina really makes you feel that you
relate and take you all into the journey of
Jack and Tate show
What a ride I cried in one moment and laughed in another
I for one cannot wait to see what’s going to
happen in the next part of their life hopefully
Kristina will not make us wait too long
