HOLLYWOOD DIRT by ALEXANDREA TORRE


synopsis
Cole Masten. Abandoned by his superstar wife, Hollywood’s Perfect Husband is now Hollywood’s Sexiest Bachelor: partying hard and screwing even harder. Watch out Los Angeles, there’s a new bad boy in town.

Summer Jenkins. That’s me, a small town girl stuck in Quincy, Georgia. I cook some mean chicken and dumplins, can bluff a grown man out of his savings in poker, and was voted Most Friendly my senior year.

We were from different worlds. Our lives shouldn’t have collided. But then Cole Masten read a book about my small town. And six months later, his jet landed on our dusty airstrip, and he brought Hollywood with him.

From the start, I knew he was trouble. For our town. And for me.

Sometimes, opposites just aren’t meant to attract.

Stand-alone Contemporary Romance.

Review

What a fantastic read!!! Alessandra Torre his the ball on the head with this light-hearted book! With enemies-to-lovers, it’s funny, it’s sexy, it’s the perfect ingredients for a 5 STAR masterpiece! And Cole and Summer? They are fantastic characters! I loved them from ‘hello’.

“Hollywood doesn’t mix well with dirt roads.”

The blurb tells you all you need to know before devouring the pages. While Cole is reeling from his recent discovery with his wife, Summer is hiding behind 3 years of being the ‘Quincy Outcast’. I could almost see what was going to happen before I read it only… I was wrong! They weren’t kindred spirits destined to meet and find solace in each other from their unfortunate situations. Oh no! I was pleasantly surprised with a sassy, southern woman. Summer was well grounded and no nonsense! She was easy to connect with. And she wasn’t fan-girling over the movie about to be filmed in her little town. Or fawning over the hot actor that would be there. She was more concerned of getting out of Quincy and never looking back.

“I would leave this town. I didn’t know where I’d go, or what I’d do – but it would be somewhere other than this.”

I was even more surprised with Cole’s character! He was your stereo-typical actor. Sexy and entitled with his blinding perfect smile. That is until he meets Summer! He almost can’t believe she isn’t going nuts or shoving any suitable means under his nose for an autograph! She definitely brings him down a notch, or two! The banter between Cole and Summer is crazy good!!

“Easy, Country.”
“Stop calling me that.”
“What, you can call me City Boy, but I can’t call you Country?”

Cole’s POV is told in third-person. As a general rule, I very much dislike reading books in third-person. I feel too disconnected. But this author made the experience somehow relatable and enjoying! I loved reading Cole!!

Summer’s side was told in first person. This really helped me get her quick-witted ways! And don’t get me started on the ‘rehearsal dinner from hell’ or her humorous inner-monologues!

Everything in this book totally worked! I swiped pages like it was my job in reading it! And I’ll leave you curious – not that you shouldn’t be already – with this…

Cocky and Brad DeLuca
