Meet Oakley Ford-teen celebrity, renowned pop star, child of famous movie stars, hottie with millions of fangirls and restless troublemaker. On the surface he has it all, but with his home life disintegrating, his music well suddenly running dry, and the tabloids having a field day over his outrageous exploits, Oakley's team decides it's time for an intervention. The result: an image overhaul, complete with a fake girlfriend meant to show the world he's settled down.Enter seventeen-year-old Vaughn Bennett-devoted sister, part-time waitress, the definition of "normal."

And for the money Oakley's team is paying her, she figures she can put up with outlandish Hollywood parties and a team of publicists watching her every move. So what if she thinks Oakley's a shallow, self-centered jerk? It's not like they're going to fall for each other in real liferight?...

When It's Real Reviews
Ridiculously entertaining. So good.
This was a pleasant surprise.
First of all, long time no see everyone! I've been so busy, I haven't been able to keep up with reviews lately (or reading as much as I used to). However, I did digest this one an audio while sick last week, so I thought I'd jot a few thoughts down.
Honestly, I was nervous because I had some big BIG issues with Erin's other series (Paper Princess). Especially in the consent department. However, this book seemed to make consent the focus in the relationship, which I s ...more
Adding an update at the end of my non-review, non-rating rant :P
*****FAKE MARKETING, MISLEADING ADVERTISMENT ALERT ******
THIS BOOK ISN'T A YOUNG ADULT BOOK, IT'S A NEW ADULT BOOK THAT IS SOLD IN THE CHILDREN SECTION OF EBOOKS RETAILERS AND PROBABLY BOOKSTORES.
****I repeat this ISN'T A YOUNG ADULT BOOK. It contains sexual content*****
This is one more time another example of a new adult book that contains erotic elements and is marketed as young adult. I haven't read it yet, but I know the authors ...more
Guilty pleasure (n.):
Something pleasurable that induces a usually minor feeling of guilt (probably because you should be doing some serious real-life stuff instead of getting lost in said pleasures).
There are two types of guilty pleasures.
The first ones refer to characters so royally twisted and messed up that the sensible part of yours keeps bothering you with nagging thoughts like "how could you love them?", while the other part enjoys this delightful addiction. And then there is the second ki ...more
Review @ Vanilla & Spice Books
This is as real and as awful and as wonderful as it gets. I’d hold her forever if she’d let me.
Oakley Ford used to be a teenage superstar. At 19 his stardom has taken a nosedive and to jump-start his career his manager suggests dating a normal girl instead of a co-star. Oak agrees after some hesitation. When a girl has been found that fulfills the requirements a strategy of "attack" is being planned and carried out.

I received an ARC from the authors / publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Full review posted at Confessions of a Pinay Bookaholic
Nineteen year old heartthrob singer Oakley Ford is on a two year hiatus in the music industry. He’s a successful, talented musician and worked hard to reach it aside from being the son of famous movie stars. Having a strained relationship with his parents makes him rebellious giving him a bad reputation. His lack of inspiration becomes a hindrance creating a new ...more
“This is as real and as awful and as wonderful as it gets. I’d hold her forever if she’d let me.”
After reading and devouring The Royals series by Erin Watt (aka the dynamic duo Elle Kennedy and Jen Frederick), I just couldn’t wait to read their next story. I was wondering what sort of world they would create for us this time and I tell you what, I was not disappointed (not that I could say I was surprised). I know this book has received mixed reviews, especially with respect to lack of origin ...more
4.5 en realidad ❤
He disfrutado muchísimo este libro...
Lo primero que debo decir es que es muy adictivo. No pensaba que fuera de otra forma, ya que las autoras me tenían acostumbrada a eso. Pero ¡OMG! No podía parar de leer ni mientras comía ni nada, solo quería leer y no hacer nada más.
Hay algo que me ha encantado de este libro y es como va surgiendo la historia entre Oak y Vaughn. Ambos empiezan teniendo una relación puramente profesional y no muy buena, pero cuando se van conociendo, vemos c ...more
