I left for LA with everything I owned piled into my old Volkswagen and dreams of becoming a costume designer. Little did I know I’d wind up designing for a lingerie company—yeah, not sure how I landed this gig—and taken under the wing of two young Hollywood insiders. The fashion shows and parties were great, but life really got exciting when the seriously hottest lead singer of my favorite band started to fall for me.
How does someone like me, an ordinary girl from Pittsburgh, wind up in the arms of the world’s sexiest rock star—surrounded by celebrities, fashion, and music—and not be eaten alive? Berkeley is everything I’ve ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, but the paparazzi, the tabloids, the rumors, it’s all getting a bit too crazy. My life has become every girl’s dream come true, if only I don’t blink and lose it all…
Each book in the Brightside series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.
Book #1 In Bloom
Book #2 Blushing
Book #3 Believe
This is an incredible story that is easy to read and fun. Everyone has been a fan of someone at some point in their life and Ms. Delahanty uses the feelings of actually meeting that person to create an atmosphere that pulls you in and makes you feel as if you are there with Olivia. Right away the reader feels a real connection with Liv and you can't help but feel all the emotions she goes through right along with her. The story is very well written and modern with fabulous character development for both main and secondary characters. I love the use of tweets at the beginning of the chapters to set the tone.
Such an amazing read!
This is the first in The Brightside series. It tells how Berkeley and Olivia meet, and how he pursues her. Even when she chooses not to be pursued.
Berk and Liv have such an amazing love story. With him being a rock star and pretty darn famous, she has to decide if he is worth loving and investing time and losing her private life. The press likes to annoy them both and it makes for an interesting read.
Liv has a hard time at first, trying to get a job, until finally she is hired to a lingerie company. She is excited about the opportunities her boss provides. She also makes friends at work and thinks she can live in Los Angeles after all. Meanwhile, at home, she is given a makeover by her neighbors. It teaches her a lot and helps with the Berk and Liv story.
Berk has tour dates he must complete and even though he and Liv have had a honeymoon of sorts, he must get back to it. Liv has her work obligations as well, and they must learn to trust and live apart. Problem is - neither really wants that.
I found the story to be compelling, and while I would have loved to have read it before the next book - each book is truly their own. Have you seen The Brightside series? It is pretty darn good at a pretty good price! The next book should be out by the end of the month!!
Stylish, sexy, super-romantic. A sweet valentine to LA, and all the makings for an irresistible read.
