<— Happy Labor Day AND… it’s LIVE!!!! HOLLYWOOD DIRT is what I’m currently reading (I had an early copy and started yesterday) and I LOVE IT!! *whooooo* Cole is TOTAL book-boyfriend material and I am crushing HARD. Tee hee!!! 😀
You guys… I was loving it so much that I made a silly reaction video (even though I’m not even done the book yet). I just felt the need to EXPLAIN to you guys why I love it so much (even though the “trope” is one that we’ve read before… famous hollywood heartthrob meets “normal” girl in her hometown).
Mind you… I’m drawn to that theme no matter how many times I’ve read one like it, however what makes this one an “I LOVE IT” book, is the writing. How well the author brings these characters to life, how they interact, the hilarious things that they think when they don’t realize that WE are in their heads. Tee hee!!!! I feel like I’m just like her! Or so I wish… 😉
Maryse: You guys I AM LOVING LOVING LOVING!!!!!!!! Alessandra Torre’s new one that’s going live tomorrow (or midnight). It is hilarious, snarky, the banter is witty (I’m giggling like mad), and the heroine is my HERO. I JUST LOVE it!!!! Okay I’m only in the first half but devouring it and am making a reaction video and everything. I’m thrilled. I’m having a perfect reading Sunday. Can we call an author a total pro? ‘Cause this one totally is… I have a feeling this is my next 5-star read!! Gah!!! She’s good, you guys… the emotion in their thoughts, it all rings so true to me.
Emma: My Labor Day read…. weeee!
Maryse: You, my dear friend, are going to have a WONDERFUL Labor Day. 😀
Stephanie: I keep hearing the Old South in my head as I read this story. Alessandra has done a fantastic job with this book!
Maryse: YES!!! It makes me want to drink a mint julep on a big ol’ covered porch, swinging on a swing, right now…
Karla: Love Alessandra’s writing…Can’t wait!
Maryse: Me too!!! She’s pretty much one of my top 10 favorite authors. Maybe even top 5. Top 3? LOL!! Gah I love her!
Maryse: Oh it is SO worth choosing this as your next, my friends. It’s endearing. It has a bit of that “Hope Floats” feel but funnier… snarkier. There are just SO many facets to this one. From super-sexy, to super-sweet, to cocky, to hilarious, to heartfelt, to the cute “gift” he received.. OMG that! LOL!!!
Clare: 15 minutes to go, can’t wait!
Suzan: Was so excited to read then realized I had to wait FOREVER to get. Already one clicked it. Not really forever but feels that way when you are ready for a good book!!!! Lol
Suzan: Here’s to waiting forever with a pot of gold… err black Kindle at the end!!
Kiki: I devoured it in one sitting yesterday. Locked myself in and kicked everyone out! I love SOLE
Maryse: LOL!!! Definitely a new book boyfriend. Maybe my first in AGES!
Laura: Just 1-clicked it! Can’t wait!
Anyway, if you enjoy contemporary romance, this is a MUST READ!!! It’s got all that southern charm, but with very “today” characters. And even if it’s not your thing right now (I know many are paranormal and fantasy fans) this is one of the best (at least so far).
