Publisher's Summary

An actress since she was 14 years old, Paige Lockwood finds herself craving a little normalcy after a scandal rocks her otherwise predictable world. With everyone in her life attempting to control her, she takes matters into her own hands and leaves town without so much as a plan or a destination.

But the destination finds her as car trouble forces Paige to settle down in a small Southern town as she waits for repairs. There she meets the handsome, albeit standoffish, Tatum Montgomery, and both of their lives are forever altered as they learn that sometimes when you aren't looking for love, it finds you anyway. The real question is: Can you hold on to it when you're from two completely different worlds?

Romantic adventurous Love story

This is a beautiful stories like the previous one in this series.It has sorrow that leads to better days. Thank you. Not full of sex scenes but more suggestive thoughts and good old fashioned values. The writer has good stories to tell.

Loved it!

Absolutely enjoyed the whole story from beginning to end. Great twists and turns (yes, some that are obvious!) but a lovely romance story. Can't wait to read about Quinn's story.

the first one was clever , well done albeit short

got to chapter 10 and pulled up. there was a pace set from the get go and the heroine was portrayed as the grounded rather naive child star grown up, her life tarnished by fame.
the plotline of getting away was plausible but the moment the hero came into play I grimaced. it took off at a sprint...what the hell. ? he only knows her famous persona but within minutes he had possession, sexual obsession and grumpy attraction toward her, then to top it off within hours....yes hours they were bantering like age old friends....he even intrudes on her personal emails.....Insta doesn't even describe this gallop!...nope not for me...it's not like it's 4 hours long like the 1st book....it just didn't work for me.
perhaps a few days of introducing the hero, his background and his feelings would have been better .... at least for me. and the pace could continue in the manner it started.
just love Erin and Jason but I cringed at Jason having to voice the thinking this hero was portrayed as.

Great listen!

This was an enjoyable book made better by the voice actors. I loved both narrators and will seek out their work in the future.

It was a good book

It was a good book but I didn't like Tatum at the beginning, at all. The way he treated Paige made no sense to me and he was a jerk but I eventually liked him. Also, Paige got on my nerves at times. She went from being spineless to standing up for herself to being spineless and then back to standing up for herself but the second time she let people tell her what to do was just stupid in my opinion. Plus she hurt Tatum too at the end but everyone just acted like he was the only one in the wrong and should do all of the groveling. But other than those things I did like it. I love the narrators. Dual pov and an HEA.

Edit...I just found out that there was a double epilogue in the book but there isn't one in the audiobook! I feel cheated. Also, I hate when some books in a series are free with membership but not all of them.

really pathetic

I tried but had to shut it down when the main character at age 21 again began acting like a child and letting her agent have full control.
What a joke and poor representation of female actress!

Too slow

The characters jumped right into lusting for each other when they met but took forever to act on it. Their feelings for each other seem unrealistic. The narrators are great, as always. But I just couldn’t get into this one

Audible crush on Jason Clarke

Keeping this short and sweet. Loved the Celebrity series and I am such a fan of Jason's voice. Can't wait for Book 3 in the series. And Erin Mallon is just absolutely wonderful in everything she does. She gets better and better. Girl crush on her. For real..lol

It was gripping

OK this is an author that I really haven't read or listen to I should say, But when I saw Erin and Jason did the audio I couldn't resist. Because you know there's no way these 2 can't bring a story to life. Which of course they did. But the story was really good it was very gripping I'm gonna go read the other 2 that go along in the series, It was emotional it was a great story, Very entertaining.

Darling, well written story!

Love this story! The southern sexy man Tatum was so refreshing and you just wanted to drink him you, even after the stupid and frustrating things he did!
Great narrators! (Jason Clare’s voice is always yum to listen to!) Make a great pair!

so, sooo bad

i like J Sterling, but this is far from her finest. if not for two of my favorite narrators i would not have bothered to finish I think the hero was channelling a teenaged girl with pms.

The story is exactly what you expect

I was looking for an easy listen, and this is exactly what it was! You know what's gonna happen, and you're happy to go along for the ride!

I have to say though, the brooding alpha character that the writer is going for in Tatum, actually was a little much for me. In a lot of instances he was just a horrible person, and it was hard to believe Paige wouldn't be put off by him. He's controlling, aggressive, petulant, and overall immature. Not my favourite.

The narration is good, I enjoyed it.

Famous actress falls in love with a small town guy

I loved this light-hearted romance, this would make a good chick flick. I always love a happy ending.

The narrators did an excellent job and bringing the story to life.
