Review Source: eBook
James Black, the hottest name in Hollywood. Blockbuster films, tabloid headlines, and broken hearts surround this golden playboy. 

Avangeline Price, a strong willed, tough as nails, zero tolerance for games woman who believes love only exists in books and movies. 

James is accustomed to women falling at his feet. Avangeline has an intense dislike of celebrities and an even bigger dislike of James Black. 

She's unimpressed. He's intrigued. Both have preconceived notions.

But… sometimes the unscripted territory is what matters most. 

When Hollywood meets Louisiana, can real life rival the movies?

This was my first book by Skye Turner and boy it won’t be my last. This story captured me from start to finish. I loved all the history about Louisiana intertwined in this amazing story. So much that I want to take a trip down south to check out some of the sights that were mentioned. 

James is a famous movie star that has a bit of a reputation. However, I felt he was more mysterious than anything. When his newest movie role lands him in Louisiana for filming, he is in need of a driver. This is when we meet AJ. 

Avangeline (AJ) is a hoot from the start. She is definitely not what James was expecting and promptly he puts his foot in his mouth from the get-go. Not caring for actors much, AJ tries to keep their relationship all about business. At least she tries anyways. 

They both were attracted to each other from the start but AJ isn’t ready for a relationship. She has just gotten over the heartbreak of her last relationship. James has only had one relationship and it hasn’t been the healthiest one he could have. The more time the two spend together the more they fall with each other. Nevertheless, both AJ and James each have secrets hidden in their pasts. Can the two work through them together or will that put an end to the couple? 

Not only is this a love story but I found myself laughing a lot. I absolutely loved the chemistry between James and AJ. AJ is a spitfire and kept me fully entertained. Something different that I thought was great too is the fact that we were able to read what James and AJ’s subconscious are thinking. I also loved how this book pointed out how people make assumptions about other people when they are indeed just assumptions. I’ve always learned to never judge a book by its cover and this story has reminded me of that. Keep that in mind when you pick this book up, I promise you won’t regret it.


Bright lights, big city… the perfect place to lose yourself.
That’s the impression I first got of Los Angeles and it’s the impression I still have today. The city of Lost Angels. I fit right in here, though I’d call myself more of a devil on any given day.
This is where I started over. This is where the boy with nothing took on the world and became the man who has people at his beck and call for every little whim.
As I look around at my hillside mansion overlooking the city, I laugh cockily at the way life has panned out.
Do I have love? No, but I have money. I have adoring fans and people follow me wherever I go. It works.
Is it a perfect life? Of course not. Being in the public eye, never having any privacy... But, it is what it is and it’s the life I’ve chosen. It’s the life for me.
The large clock chimes in the foyer and I glance at my bags near the door. The limo driver should be pulling up at any second.
Next stop… Louisiana. Not at all where I want to spend the next year and a half of my life, but it’s where filming is and filming keeps my bank account happy. All of them. This three movie deal should easily drop another chunk of change into them.
Not that I money is something I really need more of.
Smiling at the thought and the irony of that logic, I open the door just as the bell rings.
“Mr. Black. Good morning, Sir. I’ll get your bags into the car and in just a few minutes, we’ll be off. Is there anything else you need before we head to the airport?”
I think about that…
“No, I think I’m good.”

He nods, “Very good, Sir. Let me take these.”
