The Book
Release Date: 19 February 2015
Goodreads Link

And the award goes to…

Not Nina Alexander that’s for sure. With her best gracious loser face firmly in place, Hollywood’s hottest starlet is hoping to end her evening of disappointment with a graceful exit stage left. Only an unexpected proposal and an awkward wardrobe malfunction mean that this is certainly going to be a night to remember… for all the wrong reasons! So what girl would resist the gorgeous Dominic Kelly coming to her rescue?! Especially when he’s whisking her out of the paparazzi’s prying eyes on the back of his motorbike – and wearing a tux to rival James Bond!

Nina soon realises that the only way to recover from such a scandal is to toughen up and snag the role of the decade in the year’s hottest YA screen adaptation. Who better to train her than her very own professional stuntman? Getting up close and personal with Dom will take Nina well out of her comfort zone – both professionally and in her closely scrutinized private life. But this A-list couple know only too well that’s it not all happy ever afters in Hollywood…

My Opinion  5 STARS
**My thanks to NetGalley and HarperCollins UK, for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

Romy Sommer is fast becoming a must read author wherein as soon as I see that a new book is coming out, I am checking daily to see whether it has been released.

Romy has created another contemporary romance wherever Westerwald characters interact with the new characters.

Nina is an actress that does not win that award again and is very much looking to change her roles from Rom-Com to Action as there is a role that she would do anything to get.

Dom is a stunt man that worked on one of her films where she worked alongside Christian Taylor who has links to Westerwald.  He is asked by Nina to help train her to become the person she needs to be in order to get the role.

Both have personalities that are strong and they know what they want, however whilst hiding from a scandal and in secret training for the role she wants, both Dom and Nina are living together, a new thing for them both, where they end up being more themselves than they have in a long time.

The intense training, their good looks and their passion soon turn into more, and both end up wanting more, but both have secrets they are keeping from each other.

We get shock announcements, lust, love and challenge with people finding their true selves and a rounded story that pulls you in and has you turning page after page.

I greatly anticipate the next book from this author.
