What does a Hollywood Actress - with a leaked sex tape - have in common with a pizza delivery boy? Absolutely nothing.
She is one hot mess...
A walking, talking, Hollywood cliche, Falcon James is hiding out in the middle-of-nowhere Louisiana, on a mission to clean up her image, clean up her personal life, and avoid any kind of scandal. At all costs.
He is one hot single dad...
The last thing Jeremy needs is someone interfering with the life he's built in the quaint country town he grew up in. Between working odd jobs to pay the bills, the town's loose-lipped gossips, and raising his impressionable young daughter, something is bound to give. But when one routine pizza delivery turns into an unlikely friendship, Jeremy knows he's in over his head. With the bright lights of Hollywood beckoning Falcon back, how can they keep their feelings in check? Feelings that just make everything...really effing complicated.
So this was my first Rachel Schneider book and I really enjoyed it. From the blurb I went in thinking it was going to be possibly one long laugh track of a book, but I was quite surprised by the depths of the story. We got a front row view of what I could assume being a celebrity might be like, complete with all the scrutiny and eagle eyes watching your every move. I felt bad for Falcon after the tape got out; it's such a double standard for women (which sucks donkey balls unfortunately).
I liked how Jeremy ended up befriending Falcon, because he really didn't have to do it, especially since his personal life isn't such a grand walk in the park. But seeing the friendship evolve was sweet, and Jeremy gave not one flip about Falcon's celebrity status, or even her misstep from grace, he was just all about her. And the relationship with his daughter was the best. As much as I liked this book, I kind of hope we'll get to see more of these two in a future book.
