She takes up a large portion of my keeper shelves. I hesitated to pick up this latest book because I have had a hard time forcing myself to study for classes. It sucks being an adult college student. I hate sacrificing my reading time for boring college classes, but never the less, I did squeeze this one in. I read it late into the night and got up early the next morning, finishing it in as close to one sitting as I could. So much for cramming for exams.

It is a wonderful story of two Hollywood stars whom are having issues. Georgie York is famous for her wholesome teen character Scooter. Georgie has outgrown the teen role, but her fans still adore her. Her famous actor husband leaves her for a do good-er star (a la Brad and Angelina and Jennifer), she stars in a string of bad movie flops and is desperate to get her career back on track.

Bram Shepard was Georgie’s costar and series love interest, Skip. Having made some really bad choices in life, he has been disgraced as a bad boy drunk that everyone loves to discount. He has grown up and changed his ways, but is hesitant to let others see his reformed side.

Georgie and Bram really don’t like each other much and their verbal sparring provides loads of great content. They are thrown together in a freak drugging accident and end up married. They initially are upset with the rash union, but start to see some publicity benefits to a trial fake marriage. Each of them has their own selfish reasons for staying in the marriage.

Of course with all romances they grow to realize how much they don’t know about each other and soon fall in love.

I was sort of turned off by the knock off Brad/Angelina storyline and was a bit disappointed in the ending, but otherwise the verbal byplay and great secondary characters pulled this together into a really great read that keep me up really really late.
