Book Details

In the land of Hollywood, bright lights cover lies, truths hide in shadows, and the lives of the rich and famous are illusions created by smoke and mirrors.

When costume designer Josie Bane first lays eyes on Anders Ellis, she hates him instantly. Conceited and arrogant, he’s the epitome of a Hollywood playboy. So it’s much to Josie’s dismay when he becomes the star of her sexual fantasies.

Never expecting to see him again, she gives in to her desires for a night she’ll never forget. However, Josie soon learns that life is full of surprises. When their paths cross again, sparks fly. With three little words, Anders changes everything.

He’s after one thing.

She refuses to give it to him… again.

When Josie realizes she’s falling for a man that will never let her in but refuses to let her go, she must decide if the risk is worth the reward.

With a relationship shrouded in secrets and outside forces poised to tear them apart, did they ever stand a chance? Before the smoke clears and the curtain falls, Josie and Anders must distinguish between what’s fact and what’s fiction in a place where the truth is never black and white.

Review

I absolutely enjoyed this book. It was recommended to me by a friend when I had hit the blahs with reading of late. So much of the same old, I needed something to give my passion for reading a pick me up. Hollywood & Vine was a refreshing cleaver, entertaining and well written story! Even the subtly of the title I enjoyed and it left me with a little smirk. What I liked: the characters, the storyline and the dialogue. What I didn’t like: the slower pace at times and the length. It could have been a little bit of a faster pace without sacrificing any of the good stuff. Josie is a character that at first I wasn’t sure I was going to like. She didn’t seem too deep initially, but the more I got to know her through author Olivia Evans, I found out hope much I loved her; strong, stubborn but frustrating as well. Anders was the stereotypical Hollywood playboy who was at the same time aggravating, arrogant, and endearing. Let’s not forget handsome and super sexy too. Their relationship was not all sweet and sappy, which I appreciated. It was a ride filled with drama, insecurities and all! I loved the banter in this book. Anders and Josie’s conversations felt so real, I could have been watching them on the big screen. The writing style made me, as the reader, feel like I was a part of the story. I also LOVED Madison and the back and forth she and Josie had throughout the book. Their quirky friendship is the type that every woman would be lucky to find! Give this a try and have a full-out Hollywood Book Crush! 4.0 Stars
