How did this happen? Georgie York, once the costar of America's favorite television sitcom, has been publicly abandoned by her famous husband, her film career has tanked, her father is driving her crazy, and her public image as a spunky heroine is taking a serious beating.

What should a down-on-her-luck actress do? Not go to Vegas . . . not run into her detestable former costar, dreamboat-from-hell Bramwell Shepard . . . and not get caught up in an ugly incident that leads to a calamitous elopement. Before she knows it, Georgie has a fake marriage, a fake husband, and maybe (or not) a fake sex life.

It's a paparazzi free-for-all, and Georgie's nonsupporting cast doesn't help. There's Bram's punk-nightmare housekeeper, Georgie's own pushy parent, a suck-up agent, an icy studio head with a private agenda, and her ex-husband's new wife, who can't get enough of doing good deeds and saving the world—the bitch. As for Georgie's leading man, Bram's giving the performance of his life, but he's never cared about anyone except himself, and it's not exactly clear why.

Two enemies find themselves working without a script in a town where the spotlight shines bright . . . and where the strongest emotions can wear startling disguises.

*quoted text




I found a lot of similarities between this book and Jennifer Aniston's private life. Georgie is a girl-next-door type sitcom actress and her ex-husband who is a gorgeous movie star leaves her for Angelina Jolie like beautiful and talented actress who co-starred with him in a movie and is dedicated to humanitarian works, etc...


I'm sorry, but I don't have a lot of good things to say about this book. I was disappointed in the lack of chemistry between Bram and Gerogie. And what was worse, it was hard to like Bram. I was hoping to come to like him by the end of the book, but I couldn't. He was most of the time full of himself, a self-centered, selfish jerk. He had some redeeming qualities and towards the very end, he behaved like a true hero, but still in my opinion, Bram didn't deserve Gerogie. She could have done a lot better. I don't have the slightest idea why she fell in love with him.
Due to the predictable storyline and not so likable characters, (though I must say, I liked Bram's housekeeper, Chaz. She was unique!) overall, I found this book disappointing, dissatisfying and not so enjoyable.

*Fleur and Jake from "Glitter Baby", and April and Jack from "Natural Born Charmer" make appearances in this book.
