Vision boards and positivity were great, except when you’re late for a big audition and the director was literally the worst.
Oh, Jagger Hartley was young, talented, exceptionally good-looking with a famous last name, but that’s about all he had going for him.
If only he’d known Belle Mathews wasn’t the kind of woman who’d take no for an answer, and she was going to finish her audition even if she had to take him hostage.
Which she kinda did . . . oops!
But even a hijacked meeting under duress couldn’t overshadow how gifted Belle was—a born star who belonged on stage.
Pity he was crazy attracted to both her undeniable beauty and her generous heart.
So he was either going to be her biggest break, or she was going to his.
Another great love story!
I simply love Belle with her lack of a filter, her upfront/honest personality, and her beautiful soul. She is the sunshine that brightens Jagger’s life up all the while being a force to be reckoned with. She was a hoot!
Jagger was the complete opposite from Belle’s sunny disposition. This grumpy writer/director has no patience or care for anyone which I don’t blame him. Someone is always wanting him for their own selfish reasons and his lack of trust in the world brings his shady side out.
The characters were real and when I mean real, I mean how they had their insecurities and flaws just like you and me. Okay, well, I can say like me since I don’t know you personally, fair enough right?
Jagger did become a tad overbearing to the extreme at one point but again, this was his unique personality and made him who he was.
This is a standalone but I enjoyed it more when I’ve already read the first book and already knew the side characters and missed them a lot.
A mix of Enemies to Friends to Lovers as well as Boss/Employee keeps things interesting and entertaining along with the crazy banter between the two.
It was a fun ride!
