Hollywood Holiday (Red Carpet #2)
by Sasha Summers (Goodreads Author)
Jen’s only Christmas wish: Hollywood falling back in love with her. Meeting ex-Marine Gunner was a bonus. She likes that he isn’t impressed by celebrities or the movie biz. She likes that he’s funny and sweet … and drop-dead gorgeous. And she loves that he has no idea who her alter-ego is: Jen Fleming, Hollywood bad-girl and paparazzi target number one. Why ruin an amazing affair when he’s leaving after the new year?
But the closer they get, the harder she falls, and the more she wants to tell Gunner everything. Especially once he shares his secret with her.
Her new Christmas wish: Gunner accepts and loves her for who she really is.
So I was looking forward to this book because I thought Hollywood ever after was adorable.
This book was cute and had some great elements but the thing that irked me a bit was the actual love story between Gunner and Jen.
In the story it is portrayed as a falling in love story but it happened so quick I couldn't get the true essence of that bond. If it was more portrayed as love at first sight it would have been more believable to me. Due to this it felt like boom they meet and then wham within a couple of weeks they are getting married.
Now besides that, it was a cute story. It was great to have a continuation of Claire and Josh. The connection between Gunner and the others was surprising in a good way. Another good twist was the surprise for Claire and Josh.
All in all it was a quick, cute, holiday love story with a hollywood twist
