Andi Callaway has dreamed of becoming a published author her entire life.
Ford Delaney has always wanted nothing more than to escape his past.
An opportunity of a lifetime. This is what Andi finds when she returns home to Callaway Cove on summer break. A chance to work for her literary idol Ford Delaney is up for grabs, and she’s willing to risk everything—her boyfriend, her best friends, and her education—to get it.
She’s positive this will be the key to reaching her dreams. But the moment she begins working for the reclusive author, Andi realizes there’s more to him than just a name. As attraction builds between Andi and Ford, she begins to discover consequences must come hand-in-hand with something great—which could loosen control over her tightly wound life. And once romantic sparks fly, Andi’s other relationships start to crumble, Ford’s fame comes back to haunt him, and the heat they generate will either forge a powerful, enduring love or threaten everything she holds dear.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
This was a delightful romance story about a young woman and her author idol. Combining a romance story with an inside look at the life of a celebrity author, this book was quick and enjoyable read.
The focus was mostly on the characters, who were fully formed and believable. Andi was everyone’s friend, and I loved how she kept blurting out comments, even when they weren’t appropriate. It was endearing and amusing, and never malicious.
Her “friend” Rachel though… Ugh, what a piece of work. Still believable, yet not at all likeable. She was so malicious and almost the definition of frenemy; it was disgusting.
The storyline was a tad predictable, which fits my expectation of a contemporary romance, although there were a few times when I wasn’t sure there would be a happy ending. This touch of unpredictably brought me a lot of joy (what can I say, I delight in painful reads) and made the story more exciting.
Overall, this was an enjoyable romance story with an inside glimpse at celebrity life that would make for a great weekend beach read. The characters were realistic and believable, and were the highlight of the story.
