SYNOPSIS:

From New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken.

Reid Emory has never had reason to question his luck with the ladies. As the owner of a lethal set of aqua-blue eyes and a devastating grin, this Hollywood heartthrob always brings his A game…but lately his luck seems to have run out. The actor is in need of some help, and there’s only one person he can trust to take his love life—and his career—to an explosive new level.

Jordan Litwright’s newest client is trying her patience. As a publicist, she’s more than content to stay in the background and let others shine. But when a publicity stunt backfires, she suddenly finds herself thrust into the spotlight—as Reid’s new love interest. And while other men usually overlook her, Reid is focusing in with laserlike intensity. There’s no denying they have serious chemistry.

But once Reid breaks into the big time, can they turn their made-for-the-media romance into a forever love?

*****Patty’s Review*****

*****FOUR STARS*****
{ARC Provided by Author}

She yawned, her eyes watering as she gazed up at me with such innocence, such trust that it felt like someone had punched me in the stomach. I felt that look, really felt it, in my soul. I wanted to be deserving of that look.

And I wanted it directed at me every day.
Every freaking day.

This is the third installment in the Consequence series, but can be read as a standalone. Each book centers around a different person within a closely knit circle of friends and their love interest. Reid Emory is the older brother of Max and an up and coming Hollywood star. He’s drop dead gorgeous and has never had to work hard to get a woman in his bed. He’s also never really had the desire to have a meaningful relationship until it seems he is just about the last member of his friends, including his younger brother, to be single. He wonders if maybe he’s missing out on something.

 

Jordan Litwright is a very successful publicist who knows what it takes to make her clients, Hollywood A-Listers. She loves her job and that it enables her to afford the high-end shoes and wardrobe she’s become accustomed to wearing. But Jordan is what you consider a plain jane. She is literally invisible to the outside world and in a way she gets comfort from this since she doesn’t like being the center of attention. She’s also not very lucky in the love department. Men who usually pay any attention to her, turn out to be gay and are only interested in where she bought her designer shoes.

 

The lady who fell in love

 

One night Reid and Jordan meet at a bar. Reid is actually attracted to Jordan, but she ends up thinking he’s gay because, in her mind, there’s no possible way someone as gorgeous as Reid could be remotely interested in her. Luckily, the following morning, their paths will cross again, when Reid ends up becoming her newest client. Her job is to launch Reid into super stardom.

 

Right off the bat, these two start bickering and you just know that once the sparks fly between them, the chemistry is going to be off the charts HOT!! I loved all the banter and just how much they both were so attracted to each other but too dense to see it. Max, was quite the scene stealer. He brought forth so much of the comic relief, at times, I wondered if he was the main character rather than a secondary one. Don’t get me wrong, I really liked him and since Reid and Jordan needed so much intervention to make sure they found their way to each other, I understood why his presence was so dominant in this story.

 

I really loved that this was not just another story about two physically beautiful people falling in love. Jordan was a down to earth woman, with curves and a physical appearance that was considered average as opposed to Goddess like, and I found it refreshing. She was a very lovable heroine and her insecurities and nervous eye twitching tick were endearing. Reid was an extremely charming and swoon-worthy hero. He had my heart the second he saw beyond Jordan’s frizzy hair and coffee stained blouses and recognized her for the true beauty that she was.

 

I had several laugh out moments and felt like I was watching a really funny Sandra Bullock Rom Com while reading this story!! I recommend this one if you’re in the mood for a light-hearted romance with just the right amount of angst.
