Cole Masten. Abandoned by his superstar wife, Hollywood’s Perfect Husband is now Hollywood’s Sexiest Bachelor: partying hard and screwing even harder. Watch out Los Angeles, there’s a new bad boy in town.

Summer Jenkins. That’s me, a small town girl stuck in Quincy, Georgia. I cook some mean chicken and dumplins, can bluff a grown man out of his savings in poker, and was voted Most Friendly my senior year.

We were from different worlds. Our lives shouldn’t have collided. But then Cole Masten read a book about my small town. And six months later, his jet landed on our dusty airstrip, and he brought Hollywood with him.

From the start, I knew he was trouble. For our town. And for me.

Sometimes, opposites just aren’t meant to attract..

When the door to the production trailer burst open, it brought with it a wave of heat and beauty. Cole looked up from the storyboards and locked eyes with Summer, who blew across the room at him like a tornado on tilt.

“There’s no love story between Ida and Royce.” Summer snapped, throwing down the script, pages fluttering down between them. In the small trailer, conversations stalled and he could feel the attention turn their way. “I’ve read the book. Three times!”

It was good to know that someone had read the damn book. Cole glanced down at her temper tantrum of a mess and back up, raising his eyebrows mildly. “It’s a movie,” he said, turning back to the storyboards. “The writers are adding some excitement. It’s normal. You’d know that if you were in this business.” The dig was unnecessary but he couldn’t help it. This woman turned him into the devil.

“I read the first script. The one you sent over with my contract. Ida and Royce hated each other. Why would Royce…” she snatched up a page from the ground and read out a line. “pushes Ida against the file cabinet and kisses her passionately.” She balled up the page and threw it down to the ground and he could see, in her eyes, the panic. Panic. An unexpected reaction.

“We’ll use that,” Don made the dangerous move of stepping in, putting a soft hand on her shoulder. “You don’t understand. The passion from their hatred will make it hotter.”

“No.” Summer said, her face hard, her eyes on Cole. “It doesn’t make it hotter. It makes it stupid.”

“Aww… come on, Summer.” Cole chided, stepping closer, his hand reaching out to pull at her wrist. She fought him, yanking it back and the moment of their bodies meeting didn’t happen. He leaned down and whispered, right against her ear, the smell of her apple-scented lotion enough to make him want to empty out the production trailer right that moment. “Sure it does.”

She jerked back and twisted away. “If he kisses me on camera I’m going to lose it.” She shot at Don, pointing an accusatory finger in Cole’s direction.

“I know you will,” Cole laughed, crossing his arms to fight from reaching out. “You’ll fall apart under my mouth, baby.”

Summer screamed in response, her hands thrown up in frustration, and spun to leave, her script left behind, the slam of the exit door loud in the full production trailer.

“That went well,” Cole mused. He linked his hands and rested them on his head, rolling his shoulders back. Panic. She’d had panic in her eyes. Fuck.

“What do you expect?” Don said. “You threw this on her without warning. I told you we should have met with her this morning, gone over the changes to prepare her. But no – you just wanted to dump it on her via call sheets and sides.”

“Dump it on her? I was People’s Sexiest Man last year. She’s not mentally adjusting to a war camp for God’s sake. How hard is it to kiss me?”

“It’s actually three kisses,” a dark-haired PA to his left pointed out. “And a grope.”

He gave her a hard look and she withered a little.

“I’ll go talk to her,” Don said. “Eileen, you shoot #4 and I’ll talk to Summer. I want to try to get #14 shot at eleven so let’s get our asses in gear and get this done.”

“I’ll talk to her.” Cole stepped in. “You shoot #4 and I’ll talk to her.”

“No,” Don snapped. “With my luck you two would make up and any authenticity to the scene would disappear. Just stay away from her and be ready at eleven.”

Cole chewed on his cheek, then nodded. “Fine.” Don was right. He should stay away from her. Far. Far away.

~ 4 Cocky Stars ~

This is my first Alessandra Torre novel and I am happy to say it won’t be my last!!!

I was drawn to the book because of the blurb and I went in thinking it was going to be similar to another Hollywood type story that I have loved in the past. I am HAPPY to say that this book was just as good as the other one I was thinking of, but was completely different from that book. This storyline was completely unique and different from the other movie star romances out there.

Yes this is a book about a famous movie star ( Cole ) and a no name country girl not looking for fame ( Summer ) but that is the only similarities there are to others books like this one. I loved Alessandra’s writing style. This story and characters were engaging, intriguing and held me captive all the way through. The banter and sexual tension between Cole and Summer was off the charts. This couple made me laugh, scream and blush and that sometimes happened all within the same chapter…LOL 🙂

These characters felt real to me and totally relatable. I felt like I could be friends with both of them. I also loved the authenticity of the town of Quincy. It felt like a pace I would love to visit. I also reminded me of my own hometown growing up, ( without the Billionaires ) I enjoyed the pace that the author took with this couple and the fact that nothing felt rushed or unrealistic. My only complaint per say is that I wish Cole and Summer would’ve united a little sooner in the book so that we got to see more of them as a happy couple. I absolutely LOVED the ending to this book. I couldn’t have thought of a better one myself.

One thing I did really enjoy and didn’t expect was the surprise visit by Brad DeLuca. He is Cole’s divorce attorney in this book. As some may or may not know Brad comes from Alessandra’s Innocence Series. This is one I haven’t read yet but I look forward to reading all about Brad’s story. He fascinated me in this story, so his books I have a feeling are going to be good ones.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Alessandra’s, but I will let you know that from what I know this book is completely different from her other books. Just be aware of that going in. You also must like a slow burn type romance. Cole and Summer’s love story is slow going, but I truly think it is the way it was meant to be told. Anything different would’ve been unrealistic. So if you are looking for a story about a Hollywood Hunk and a Country Girl that is truly a feel good story, then look no further….this is the book to read!!!!
