Publisher's Summary

Hayley Carpenter has always dreamed of being a famous screenwriter, but dreams don’t pay bills and LA living isn’t cheap. So when a temp position at a celebrity gossip magazine becomes available, she goes after it.  

Emerson Sterling has been acting since she was little, but a rough patch as a teenager has given her a bad rap in Hollywood. Just when she thinks her dream role can turn around the public’s image of her, a conflict with her co-star and America’s Sweetheart, Rachel Blanche, puts her on the front cover of every magazine, the villain once again.  

Rumors swirl that the starlets’ feud started in the bedroom, and Hayley accidentally overhears a conversation between Emerson and Rachel that could lead to the biggest scoop of her career. Will Hayley follow the story, or will her irresistible attraction to Emerson and the secrets Emerson is desperate to keep buried ruin both their careers...and their chance at love?

Beautiful story, frustrating narration.

The story is beautiful. The narrator lacks good character vocals to make an enjoyable listen.

Excellent!

I loved Media Darling. Great story. Loved Hayley and Emerson. I hate the fact that the media hounds them. Now I feel justified in not paying any attention to gossip shows or gossip rags. If people stopped supporting gossip writers and photographers. The world would be a better place. Lori Prince does an excellent job with the narration.

great story, great narration!

Great story....great character development and intensely written love scenes. THANK YOU Ms. Riley for "spelling out" love scenes. Some authors leave love scenes to the listeners imagination. This is lesbian romance for crying out loud! We want to be led! On an equally important note....anyone who doesn't adore Lori Prince needs their head examined. She gives amazing depth to characters and is the only narrator I know brave enough to give love-making scenes the passion and intensity needed to make your stomach jump and make you almost drive off the road. This is a great book. Buy it. The end.

Star studded Love Story!

Great Story and Narrator brought the characters to Life! The intimacy was born out of respect, friendship and a very special connection. A true love story.

Entertaining Read!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was fast-paced; filled with witty banter and emotional dialogue between characters, who were likable, yet demonstrated weakness from time to time. And Lori Prince did an excellent job of bringing a cast of characters to life. It was my favorite performance by her and my favorite book of Ms. Riley’s.
And in case you are wondering....there was plenty of good sex scenes. All in all, it was a grand adventure!

Fantastic!!!

Really really enjoyed this book and loved the characters! I kept waiting and dreading for a certain turning point to happen, but fortunately the author chose to not go with the normal formula and went in a different direction. Great book and well narrated.

what a ride!

I loved this story! I almost finished this book in 1 day, I couldnt wait to hear what happened next. I love stories set in the entertainment industry and this book keeps you on the hook just waiting to see how it unfolds. At times it was funny, heartfelt, and almost suspenseful. Highly entertaining story....and Lori s narrating! She nails it every time and sells the intimate scenes in a way I cant even explain. 10/10 definitely recommend
