Can a wannabe be The One for the biggest star in Hollywood?

Working for a third-rate agent, Cassie hopes to land a new job that will give her credibility, as well as help pay the rent. Late to her interview, she swerves to avoid hitting a dog—and totals the car of Hollywood's leading action superstar. Surprisingly, she walks away from their encounter with a job—as the sexiest man alive's personal assistant.
Rhett Corrigan is bored with the movies he makes and the drop-dead gorgeous model he's dating. He's afraid that Hollywood has typecast him—and that he'll never be able to break out of his action mold and try new acting challenges. When Cassie Carroll literally slams into his life, she brings a breath of fresh air and common sense to his world. She pushes him to be a better actor and a better man.
Can these friends become lovers—and can their love survive—in a tabloid-happy town that thrives on rumors and backstabbing?
Aston (the Dukes of Distinction series) kicks off the Hollywood Name Game series with this sweet, sexy contemporary romance. Cassie Carroll is running late for a job interview at a Hollywood entertainment agency when she swerves her car to avoid hitting a dog and instead runs into a car owned by action star Rhett Corrigan. Rhett rescues Cassie before her car explodes and, after learning that she was on her way to interview with his agency, impulsively offers her a job as his temporary personal assistant. Rhett is impressed with Cassie's candor and comfort around the rich and famous, and she is grateful for the steady, well-paying job, which comes complete with room and board for her and her roommate, Jolene, in the gatehouse of Rhett's estate. As Rhett's relationship with narcissistic model Randi James goes off the rails, the mutual attraction between him and Cassie grows stronger but he's reluctant to act on it while she's still his employee. They're forced to confront their true feelings, however, when Jolene accidentally leaks information about Rhett's personal life to the press, resulting in scandal. Aston makes it easy to care about Cassie, a genuine, hardworking woman who maintains her integrity in the glittering world of Hollywood. This fast-paced romance is a treat. (Self-published)\n
Some humor, some drama. Likeable characters. Book offers some real insight into the viper pit that is called Hollywood. I have always imagined how horribly fake most people in “the biz” in CA are...and this book shows how hard that environment can be for truly talented, creative, real people to survive and thrive within. Entertaining and interesting read.
The story was explosive, so good! Itza can’t put down kind of book.
Not your typical love story. It wasn’t predictable. Interesting characters and the twists and turns keeps you reading till the end. Loved this book!
