“lights, camera, action” of Hollywood lies a world of deception,
love, and seduction.Are you ready for Hollywood Royalty?Carter
A blonde, a brunette, a redhead…he can have his pick
of them all on any given night and he knows it. They wait, hoping he looks up
and gives them his signature smirk, choosing them over the others because
that’s his game. Except now he’s signed the contract of a
lifetime, one with a pesky little clause that says his zipper must stay up and
his playboy image has got to tamp down. It’ll be fine—a piece of cake, even—he
can do this and he’s almost convinced himself of that … and then she walks in
the room The new PR girl whom they’ve hired to change his
image, she’s the star of all his dreams, but there’s one tiny little problem …
she can’t stand him and all of his player ways. He knows he only has thirty days to show her why
they call him Hollywood’s Prince. He’s up for the challenge, so game on.
When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…

Oh Carter Johnson, how I love thee!
Carter Johnson is Hollywood’s Prince. He also has a terrible habit of sleeping with women – a different woman every night. He is about to make a movie that could make his career take off, so it’s decided that he needs a PR person to make his image better. That person is Erin.
Erin is an intern at Hillcrest Productions, and is assigned to work with Carter. God, in the beginning of the book, Carter is such a giant asshole. I didn’t think he would redeem himself (he did). Erin is a tough cookie who is trying to make her way up the ladder.
Once the story started taking off, I absolutely loved Carter. He was a sweet, genuine guy who had been dealt a bad hand. As a typical Hollywood person, Carter has to worry about whether people’s feelings are genuine or if they are using him. He had some insecurities about that, but they felt real and believable.
There were a few surprises in this book I didn’t see coming, but they absolutely added to the story. There weren’t a ton of supporting characters in this story, which was a bit odd, but it was ok.
I really enjoyed this story and will pretty much read any word Natasha Madison writes. She has quickly become a go to author fore me.
