Adapted for Film by Stacey Rourke Blog Tour

Aubrey Evans is living every author’s dream; her sizzling romance novel is being turned into a blockbuster film. She would be celebrating this momentous event, if she wasn’t busy fighting over every tiny production detail with the maddeningly cavalier director, Kole Camden.

When news of their heated rivalry hits the gossip columns, drastic measures must be taken to save their sinking project. In an elaborate PR hoax, she is publicly linked to Greyson Meyers, the swoon-worthy star of her movie. A whirl-wind love affair is staged for the couple to mirror the steamy chapters of her own books.

Can the introverted author resist the charms of Hollywood’s sexiest leading man? Or will love find her in the City of Angels?

“I think I get it. If a butterfly were to land on you, its touch would be so delicate that you would wonder if it had really happened at all, or if it was merely your mind fantasizing that such a rare beauty would honor you with the gift of their touch.”

A gorgeous man uttering such poetry temporarily short circuited my brain. Catching myself doing the slack-jawed fan-girl thing, I quickly snapped my mouth shut and averted my gaze to a nonthreatening cement turtle by the edge of the gazebo.

“Yep,” I muttered to the turtle. “I think you’ve got it.”

Unfortunately for my last remaining shred of dignity, Greyson wasn’t done with his tutorial. He closed the distance between us with a burning hunger blazing in his eyes. A hot flush rose in my cheeks, creeping clear up to my earlobes as his sculpted body skimmed against mine. Toned, rigid perfection only a few thin layers of fabric away …

“What are you doing?” My voice failed me, coming out in a raspy yelp.

“Making sure I’ve got this right.” Temptation, of the most carnal variety, emanated off of him. His focused gaze followed the curve of my lips, the lift of one brow promising toe-curling fun.

It had been a really long time since someone had looked at me like that. Much less one of the sexiest men on the planet. That almost never happened.

“Aiden wouldn’t grab Paige, wouldn’t pull her to him.” Raising one hand, he traced the length of my arm with two fingers.

Starting at my wrist, he worked his way up. His skin never actually made contact, but whispered over mine in an electrifying rush that rolled and built. Bowing his head, his silky locks tickled my cheek. Hot breath teased over my collarbone, awakening a need so powerful my hands curled into tight fists at my sides. Agonizingly slow, he raised his head. The blissful torment of his lips teased over mine, setting the veil of energy between us alive with desire.

“He wouldn’t want to crush her lips with his need,” he murmured against my mouth, “but would wait… patiently for her to close that last… remaining… space.”

Having been a fan of Mrs. Rourke’s YA novels for a while now, I was very nervous to hear of her newest book. Romantic comedy, no this would not work! Well I bow down to her brilliance with this work. I was 100% wrong. This book is filled with everything I love about her other series, quick wit and characters that you can totally relate to. I squealed with delight when my all-time favorite quote from Star Wars was used. From start to finish, I was enthralled with the story. I literally could not put it down and I read it in a matter of hours because of this.

I became a fan of Stacey Rourke when I read the Gryphon series. When I saw Stacey was trying her hand at Adult Contemporary Romance I jumped at the opportunity to read this story....and I wasn't let down! I couldn't put it down. It's sweet, sarcastic, and at times had me chuckling out loud. Every character was well written and just meshed. I love how it me hope we may see more of Aubrey, Kole, and the rest of the True Love gang.

I really enjoyed this story, and loved the way that it was told. It was clever, funny and I felt a great tease to us, the readers. Did I guess the twist early on? Well, probably yes, but it just made it all the more amusing watching it play out. The side characters, such as Sebastian, are recognisable homage to the industry and just add to the humour. It is a short, sweet read which hints at a lot, but really it is pretty much all verbal play – which fits the author lead perfectly. As the film is getting a ‘sequel,’ I am hoping we might revisit this gang again too.

Stacey Rourke is the author of the award winning YA Gryphon Series as well as the chillingly suspenseful Legends Saga.

She lives in Michigan with her husband, two beautiful daughters, and two giant dogs.

She loves to travel, has an unhealthy shoe addiction, and considers herself blessed to make a career out of talking to the imaginary people that live in her head.
