The Accidental Movie Star by Emily Evans

Title: The Accidental Movie Star
Author: Emily Evans
Publisher: Amazon Digital Services, Inc.
Length: 256 pages
Format: ebook

My Description:

This summer Ashley is trying to pad her college resume with an internship to die for. She is leaving Houston, Texas to spend the summer in Hollywood, California with her father and work as an intern on a movie set. This isn't her first time around the Hollywood block and she's no longer struck speechless by all of the stars. After all, they are people...stuck up and pretentious...but just people. It's a good thing too, because she is fetching coffee, running errands, and being the go get it girl for one of TVs hottest stars, Caspian. Ashley acts like he's a normal person and this intrigues the British superstar. Along the way a friendship forms, there are a few kissing lessons, some stand in work in some steamy scenes, and feelings start to develop. Are these feelings strong enough and is there enough trust in the backstabbing world of Hollywood for a real relationship to grow? Or at the end of the day will Ashley just be an Accidental Movie Star?

My Thoughts:

If you are looking for a cute contemporary book with a glamorous edge you need to read The Accidental Movie Star. Ashley is a character that was fun getting to know. Her "real" approach to the Hollywood stars was refreshing and realistic. She wasn't just magically immune, she had been around them her whole life. It all made sense. The romantic progression between her and Caspian was cute. The little signs, quirks, and jealousies were funny. It wasn't love at first sight it was gradual. One of my favorite and hottest scenes in the book was the kissing lessons. Emily Evans sure doen know how to describe a kiss! Caspian was a nice guy and not really what I expected. He was very down to earth, but still knew how to use his Hollywood charm to get what he wanted. If there was any complaints from me it would be the lack of trust and obvious explanations as to what really happened. Also, the title doesn't really fit. Ashley doesn't actually becom an accidental movie star (in my opinion). This was a really cute book and well worth the couple of dollars it cost. I give this book a 4 STAR rating.
