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.
Do you want to meet a hot, cocky movie star? One with a huge God complex that believes the sun rises and sets for him alone. I read the blurb and couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into this one!
We all love those books were the male lead is a complete a$$hole. Somehow or another I always seem to fall for them. They’re magnetic, turn me on and the bigger the douche, the more I love them. Well in Hollywood & Vine, Anders Ellis takes the Oscar for world’s biggest asshole. He’s a “one and done”, wham, bam, thank you mam kinda guy. Never does repeats and the slew of women waiting to do him is endless.
Josie is a hard working costume designer and works on a movie set with him. She sets her sights on him and just wants one night. One night of pure pleasure is what she craves. So, she has magic sex with him—the best sex of her life and plans on forgetting about him and moving on, but the universe has other plans. Josie winds up having to work with him again on the set of his next movie. But guess what, he doesn’t even remember her! Josie puts it out there that she could care less and moves on. This doesn’t sit well with Anders. He sets out to “win her over” and stops at nothing to get her to fall at his feet.
“I want you.” Raw desperation lingered on the edge of his words. “Can I have you?”
Two people so opposite who seem to butt heads about everything. The push and the pull, the arguments, the angst and the drama that surround them at every turn had my stomach in knots. So many times I felt like I was watching an actual movie—that’s how well Olivia described all the twists and turns. And wow, were there a lot of them. True Hollywood drama!
It was refreshing to read a stand alone, a long one at that, and not feel like it was stuffed with fluff. Anders was HOT and Josie was a badass. I loved how spunky she was! Olivia’s first novel was really great, and I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next.
