    FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED Sexy, fun, and fantastically well written, with an intense hate to love Hollywood romance that ll make your heart race That s exactly what this book was and I love love LOVED it There s a special feeling you get when you start a genuinely fantastic book where you can just instantly feel that it s a winner I was less than a page into this book before I d fallen in love with it From the start, the story had this almost palm tingly feeling of anticipation, excitement, and intrigue to it and with Alessandra Torre s strong, captivating writing, I found it to be unputdownable Cole Masten was the epitome of walking sex and had every woman in town drooling over his arrival Every woman but me, that is I couldn t be For one, he was an ass All cocky attitude and no manners to speak of For two, he was for the next four months my boss Secrets are fascinating We re all drawn to them And Summer Jenkins sleepy Southern town of Quincy, Florida was brimming with them Almost 50 millionaires and billionaires lived within the grand total population of 7000 folk, but you d never know if you looked by looking at them They quietly went about their lives, never boasting of their wealth, until super star actor Cole Masten found out their secrets and decided to turn them into a blockbuster movie So Hollywood arrived, one quiet Sunday afternoon, with their trucks and noise and equipment, soon overrunning her small town And bringing her face to face with one of the world s sexiest, most famous, and most swooned over men who she happened to hate on sight Don t do that What He straightened off the porch railing That smile thing It s creepy He stopped smiling Ten million Americans would disagree with you Then ten million Americans are idiots His good looks weren t nearly enough to get him in her good graces With his lack of manners and cocky attitude, she had no problem telling him exactly where to go or kneeing him soundly in the balls the first time he tried to kiss her But there are two sides to every story, and luckily we were given both.He wasn t a bad guy in fact he was a pretty good one, but was in the middle of an ugly divorce and still hurting from his soon to be ex wife s stinging betrayal He also came from a world of smoke screens and lies, where privacy was the most highly coveted luxury that even the richest stars couldn t buy and where personal lives were dragged through the mud for the public s entertainment The combination of everything had in fact naturally fashioned him into what would easily appear to be an asshole People in Hollywood will build you up just so that they can rob you blind You gotta be an asshole to not be assholed Don t ever forget that So when contrasted with her Southern upbringing of manners and hospitality, it was no surprise that the the sparks between them flew right from the start Can you put on some pants she snapped, looking back at him, her eyebrows raised accusingly It s rude to waltz around with your junk out The sexual tension was delicious They were so busy hating each other that they barely realized they were falling in love It was this intense mixture of lust, hate, attraction, frustration, and desire they couldn t stand each other, but were still drawn closer However I really appreciated that they didn t just fall into bed The build up was perfectly drawn out teasing and enticing you further into their story There should be laws against men who could kiss like that With a mouth that dominated yet begged Tongue that teased yet delivered Tastes that dipped into an addicting stream and hooked a woman after just the first hit Ohhh and the humor It was just brilliant Witty, snarky, sassy, and totally hilarious I laughed and chuckled my way through several scenes, especially the ones involving Cole s new pet chicken err, sorry rooster named Cocky Yep, rooster Pet Not dinner Beloved pet Omg, those scenes were pure GOLD I just got a baby rooster, Cole started I can see that, the man drawled He leaned forward, his chair creaking, and peered through the thick plastic Why d you bring it with you I don t know I thought it might need to be checked out, or you might have questions, or it might not be able to be left alone Cole s voice trailed off, and he realized exactly how stupid he sounded It s A Chicken The toothpick in the man s mouth fell out as he spat out the words It s not a pet You don t name the thing and give it a bedazzled collar What does it eat Cole snarled, taking Cocky s tub down off the counter and setting it on the floor, his boot pushing it to a safer location, a little to the side Corn Cole waited for And waited Just corn Nothing else The man raised his eyebrows It s A Chicken Anything else I d need for it Medicine or vitamins or shots It s A Chicken, Cole finished Got it And finally, there is some serious hotness in this awesome story Cocky attitude or no, Cole had me swooning and fanning myself And I m pretty sure you ll be doing the same once you ve met him I ll pin you down and won t stop until my mouth is imprinted on your mind and your taste is my fucking middle name See winks Oh aaaaaaaaaand there s a cool twist to the direction of the story that isn t mentioned in the blurb and that I ve chosen not to mention here just because I honestly think it s fun to just discover it as you go There was nothing about this book that bothered me, I have zero complaints It really was a winner I genuinely LOVED this book I read it cover to cover in one sitting It was additive and utterly delightful to read The writing was top notch, the humor was on point, and the intense hate to love romance kept my heart racing This was a smart, sexy love story with incredibly strong writing I highly recommend it Rating 4.5 stars Standalone Contemporary Adult Romance._______________________________________ For of my reviews, book news and updates Main blog Aestas Book Blog Facebook Blog Page Twitter Subscribe

    5 stars We are strong We are Southern We have secrets you will never imagine Hollywood Dirt is not the type of read I ve come to expect from Alessandra After reading most of her books, I can say that this is far different from all the rest but equally as good I was in the mood for something lighter, sweeter, with a strong heroine and wonderful hero and that is exactly what she delivered Hollywood Dirt is a feel good romance about two people who started off hating each other and ended up falling hard for one another Summer Jenkins has lived in small town Quincy most of her life Quincy is full of southern people who have money but don t like to talk about it Summer isn t from one of those families that have money She and her mom are working class As much as she loves her mom and she loves Quincy in some ways, she is dying to escape to get out of the town that held such unpleasant memories for her To start fresh Cole Matsen has a passion for the film he s starring in A true to life tale about the Coca Cola fortune in Quincy Cole is professionally ready for the role of a life time, but his personal life isn t going so well After catching his wife of 5 years cheating, he s in the process of a divorce Love is the last thing he s looking for In fact, until his divorce is final, he s been advised by his attorney sigh to stay away from all women When Cole first arrives at Quincy, he meets this spitfire named Summer The only thing he can think about is she would be perfect for his film She would bring a level of authenticity to the role that no one else could give it Summer isn t interested in being a star, she s not interested in Cole, either but being in this film could be her ticket out, so she takes it I loved the back and forth between Cole and Summer Their banter was great and you could just feel the tension between them These two characters were fantastic together They tried so hard to fight the way they were feeling, but they could only fight it for so long Both of them had a fun and feisty attitude and I loved them both together Alessandra did a great job giving Quincy a realistic small town feel And let me tell about Cocky the rooster Every scene between Cole and Cocky left me with the biggest grin on my face There wasn t much I didn t love about this book It was overall a wonderful read Hollywood Dirt is a small town romance with tons of heart It had laughs, the right amount of steam, and was an all around sweet and fun read If you re looking for a book that will keep a smile on your face and leave you with a happy feeling in your heart, pick this one up

    4.5 Coca Cola StarsThis book was such pleasant surprise Alessandra Torre skillfully tells the story of a small town girl falling for Hollywood s top hottie The story is interestingly based on the very real Coca Cola millionaires which I found myself reading about once I finished this book Hollywood s heartthrob Cole Masten is bringing this Coca Cola story to the big screen The filming of this movie will take place in the small, southern town of Quincy, Georgia Summer Jenkins, our heroine, house sits on an estate with her mother, and has been ignored and politely shunned for the past three years by the whole town The mix of city meeting country as Cole falls for Summer and their back and forth, love hate attraction, is pretty entertaining and so very sexy Summer finds herself smack dab in the middle of this multi million dollar production as the lead Added to the fun is the one and only Brad DeLuca He represents Cole in his divorce from his cheating superstar wife I truly enjoyed the pace of this story, the setting, and the cast of terrific characters Most of all, Summer and Cole s fall into love was perfectly done For him, flirtation was nothing, a country girl finding him attractive normal For me Falling for the unattainable Cole Masten might just break all of my bones upon impact This was not a rebound, this was not infatuation, this was the end of this life as he knew it, and the realization hit that even if she didn t want him, he would never ever find another woman like her, he would never ever get other her Summer and Cole s story was so very entertaining with the just right amount of fun, steam, and love ARC provided by Alessandra Torre for an honest review

    FIVE SOLEMATE STARS ARC Generously Provided by Author in Exchange for an Honest Review BR with Dee and Mel I could hate this man, curse him to hell, but there had never been a question on this earth that the man was beautiful, this his body was sin, that his sexuality was addicting.SUPERB I have read several of Alessandra Torre s books previously but this one is hands down my FAVORITE It was such an unexpected treat Her stories are usually erotic with some dark undertones This was the kind of story I crave It was funny, with just the perfect amount of angst and sultry steam I lost my heart to the Hero and even fell in love with the heroine as well Don t even get me started on that crazy little rooster Summer Jenkins is a young woman who lives in a small town in Georgia, called Quincy It has a total population of 7000, and is best known for being home to 45 millionaires and 3 billionaires Their fortune gained by purchasing some valuable Coca Cola stock back in the 1930s She lives with her mother and keeps a low profile She isn t exactly the town s most favorite person due to something she did a few years prior Summer s dream is to be able to move out of Quincy and start her life over in a place where no one knows about her past.Cole Masten is Hollywood s hottest actor at the moment He s a three time Academy Award Winner and also one of the most beautiful men in the business He s recently had his personal life turned upside down and is heading to Quincy to start production on a movie he is funding The story will be based on a novel about the group of millionaires of Quincy and how they made their fortune I will say that once these two meet, the chemistry is electric, and the book became unputdownable for me They are definitely attracted to one another but Cole puts his foot in his mouth and gets on Summer s bad side right from the start He sees something in Summer that convinces him that she must be the leading lady in his movie and gets her to agree to take on the role.The animosity that builds between them only guarantees that when these two finally get together, the sex is going to be explosive It s a slow build to get to the steam but for me it only made it that much gratifying when it finally happened You will not be disappointed ladies Believe me I actually love when the hero and heroine can t seem to stand the sight of each other You just know that you re in for a treat when they finally let their guard down, and that the sex is going to be panty melting good It doesn t happen often that I actually end up loving both main characters in a story, but Cole had me swooning and owned my heart the moment he starts to care for Cocky I don t want to say much about that You all will see once you pick up this book Summer was a spitfire and yet had an endearing vulnerability to her as well I loved how she held on to her Southern traditions and could go toe to toe with Cole whenever they had a clash of opinions, which happened quite often This is a MUST READ Go on and one click You all need to meet Cole, Summer, and Cocky And you ll get a treat because there is a character from another one of Alessandra Torre s series that is in this book quite a bit.

    4 Stars Now I knew why they said you FELL in love I plummeted with no parachute, and hoped like hell he would catch me when I hit the bottom. Have you ever read a romance novel and it was like a movie reel in your head Like you could actually imagine the actors playing out every line Picture the town and it s residents exactly as they re being described Actually notice absolutely every single minute detail inside your mind That s what Hollywood Dirt was for me At times I felt like I was reading a movie script so than a book At first I thought that maybe that s not really a good thing since it was a slower pace than what I m used to But after taking some time to think about it, I can say that it was refreshingly different. If you ve read any of the other books by this author, Hollywood Dirt is nothing like them There s no crazy twists, it s certainly not as erotic as her other books have been, and it s not evocative It s a light, feel good, pure contemporary romance about a country girl and a hollywood star An unlikely one, but still a romance that will capture your heart For him, flirtation was nothing, a country girl finding him attractive normal For me Falling for the unattainable Cole Masten might just break all of my bones upon impact. Don t except a quick paced story here, the romance between Cole and Summer is very much a slow burn, and it wouldn t be fitting any other way They re from two different worlds and they see themselves in two different places entirely in the future, but chance and circumstance brings them together and what starts off as pure snark with hate soon begins to show the undercurrent of unadulterated lust that slowly begins to evolve into something much deeper Jesus, Summer I want to taste you so badlyI want to flip you over and bury my face between your legs and fuck you with my mouth I want to make you scream my name and come underneath my mouth and taste the moment you fall apart for me. Cole is coming off of a bitter divorce and putting everything he has into the movie that he s now bankrolling When he comes to the small southern town and meets Summer, he knows there s no one better suited to play the main role of Ida than her Summer is hoping to take the money she earns from the movie and finally put the town she grew up in and the memory of her mistakes made in it 3 years ago behind her But when she begins to see the man beneath the hollywood layers, she sees there s much to Cole than first meets the eye and she begins to fall for him In that moment, that push, I lost every hold I had on myself and became his. Fans of Alessandra s Innocence series will get a VERY big surprise in this book Which only heightened my enjoyment of this But it was always all about Cole There was just something so endearing andrealabout him Summer was a different heroine from anything I ve read from Alessandra in the past, and while she has her faults and hang ups this is still a woman that knows her worth and stands up for it It was beautiful, fucking heaven, his hands tight on my ass, his pumps fast and quick and barely controlled, the perfect, rapid rhythm pushing me to a place I had never been from just sex, a completion that took me by surprise and caused my body to tighten, my breath to gasp out, my fingers to dig into the mattress, and my world broke, around his heaven and to my hell. Honestly, I struggled a little going into it simply because it wasn t quite what I had expected It s slow paced, but the pace was perfect for the book and the story Upon thinking about it, it really was perfectly suited for this story It was different but lovely If you re looking for a light and feel good contemporary romance, this is a book you should definitely try Alessandra Torre is an incredibly talented writer, and this book shows how multi faceted she is She can pull off different genres and it truly translates Each of her books has been different in their own right, and this one is no different While different from the rest, I think that s what I enjoyed the most about it There was nothing crazy, no silly drama or overdrawn angst Just two imperfect characters finding a perfect love together ARC courtesy of author in exchange for an honest reviewFor reviews visit
