Publisher's Summary

He's a Hollywood superstar. She's literally the girl next door.

As one of Hollywood's A-listers, I have the movie industry in the palm of my hand. But if I'm going to stay at the top, my playboy image needs an overhaul. No more tabloid headlines. No more parties. And absolutely no more one-night stands.

Filming for my latest blockbuster takes place on the coast of Maine, and I'm determined to stay out of trouble. But trouble finds me when I run into Lana Kelly.

She doesn't recognize me, she's never heard of Matt Easton, and my million-dollar smile doesn't work on her.

Ego shredded, I know I should keep my distance, but when I realize she's my neighbor, I know I'm toast. There's no way I can resist temptation when it's 10 yards away.

She has a mouth designed for pleasure and legs that will wrap perfectly around my waist.

She's movie-star beautiful, and her body is made to be mine.

Getting Lana Kelly into my bed is harder than I'm used to. She's not interested in the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, but I'm determined to convince her the best place in the world is on the red carpet, holding my hand.

I could have any woman in the world, but all I want is the girl next door.

A sexy, stand-alone romance.

    "Misleading title"

    I’m a huge Louise Bay fan, but found this book lacking. There’s not enough scandal to justify the title, I’d have been interested to read about Matt’s past some more before meeting Lana. It’s a sweet book, but it lacked any grit for me.

    "Absolutely loved this book"

    This is the first book I’ve read/ listened to from Louise Bay, I know I’m late to the party, I do have other books, I just haven’t had the time to dive into them yet. After listening to Hollywood Scandal, I am moving them up the TBL list, because, damn, I loved the writing style, the way I reacted to the characters and the story, I need more of this goodness in my life.


    When I read the synopsis for this book I was giddy, it sounded amazing. The girl next door and the sexy movie star! Sign me up. I thought it would be a fun book to listen to, and I was right. I loved everything about this book. I loved how Lana didn’t know who Matt was and fell for him anyway. I loved that Matt liked that she didn’t fall at his feet, she was a challenge for him. It’s a sweet romance that captured my heart and attention early on and once I started it, I didn’t want to put it down.

    I fell completely in love with Matt Easton, he was such a sweet, swoon-worthy character. I was completely taken with him, pretty much from the get go. He was funny and charming. Respectful and supportive. Sure, he might have made some mistakes but his heart was in the right place. I also may not be able to see past his awesomeness lol.

    I really liked Lana, I did get a little mad at her at times, how could she not see how perfect Matt was? I mean, come on girl! She came around to my way of thinking, in the end, so all was forgiven. I liked her backstory, and her reasoning made sense, even though I wanted to tell her to get over it, I understood her reluctance. Her interactions with the locals were cute and gave insight into her character.

    I had an instant dislike of Brian and Sinclair, I wanted to punch them both in the balls. Who the heck did they think they were? I’d have fired them. But, they did redeem themselves in the end so I kind of forgave them.

    The older residents of Worthington were great, I loved their little additions to the story and they really brought the small-town vibe to life.

    I loved Ruby, she totally needs her own book and HEA. I liked that she was the one person that knew Lana and her history, that she could offer support and advice that others couldn’t, even though she played a small part in the scheme of things, the effect was huge.


    I loved how this relationship played out. It was very sweet. I loved the interactions between the characters and the banter they had. Of course, it wasn’t all smooth sailing but the conflict made the ending so much sweeter. The sex scenes were steamy and well placed, none of the sex was for the sake of it, it played a part in the story and made sense…and was written incredibly well.

    A couple of scenes really stood out for me with this couple. The first kiss…wowser, what a kiss that was. I don’t know how they managed to pull away, it was hot. I think that might have been when I fell in love with Matt. The second was the first sex scene, it is a perfect example of this couple and how they react to each other, the trust and respect they have. I thought it was beautifully done. Another scene, I know I said a couple but I just remembered this one, I loved it, and it’s not really a spoiler, but Matt gives an acceptance speech and it was so beautiful, I may have teared up…just a little.


    This dual narration was incredibly performed, Andi Arndt and Sebastian York’s voices blended smoothly together to tell this story and really made you feel like you were there, witnessing these events. They may have also melted my headphones with those sex scenes…talk about smoking hot!

    Andi Arndt was on point with her narration, which she usually is. I loved her as Lana and she really performed all the characters well, she was wonderful. One of the standout character performances for me was Mrs. Wells. Although a smaller part, she had that blend of wisdom and cheek; it was not over performed like older people sometimes are.

    I’ve listened to a number of audiobooks performed by Sebastian York, and I must say, I think this is my favourite. He totally blew me away with his performance, it was very different from anything else I’ve heard him do. (Maybe I’ve been listening to the wrong books?) Each character was very distinct. The accents were done well and sounded right for the areas. He was absolutely perfect as Matt.

    "Cinderella with a Hollywood Spin"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Hollywood Scandal to be better than the print version?

    I did read the print version but I loved the audio version. I would highly recommend it to someone looking for an audiobook


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hollywood Scandal?

    I loved Matt's acceptance speech...the way he recognized his friends and family showed the type of person he is. He never let fame get to him and is reflected in his speech and friendships. Of course how he acted after accepting it was a reflection of it too.


    What does Andi Arndt and Sebastian York bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    These two perfectly blend together in their delivery of the audio book. You would think they are reading the book in the same place. Their performance adds emotion, chemistry and depth that you wouldn't have by just reading the book. By having the narrators perform the book you fell like the book has come to life and at times you can feel the emotions of characters.

    "Best author and Best narrators"

    Louise Bay is a genious when it comes to telling a story. I love her stories of the rich and famous. The rogue and the innocence. Or not! This was a great story and you can't go wrong with the Arndt and York team. The best in the business. The story is so believable and exciting. I don't think there is a Louse Bay or Andi Arndt or Sebastian York book that I don't love. Always know I'm in for a treat when I push the start button to begin listening.

    "Holy Hotness! Sebastian and Andi do it again!!"

    What an amazing story! Matt, the Hollywood hottie, and Lana, the hometown girl are the perfect couple. This was a great story of famous guy meets not-so-famous girl, they fall in lust, then love, and all the fuzzy, happy, maddening stuff in between. And plenty of dirty talk, and dirty stuff!

    Sebastian York and Andi Arndt are two of my favorite narrators, and they don't disappoint in this audiobook.

    "A Wonderful, Sexy, Believable, Romantic Story"


    Lana and best friend Ruby have a beach cottage, next door [to Lana's home], that they rent out to tourists. Unbeknownst to Lana the cottage has been rented out to Matt – a Hollywood movie star on his way up to becoming an A-lister.

    She doesn't recognize him and he is so happy to be liked for Matt, the man, not Matt the movie star.

    This is a fun and sexy romance. Hollywood, small-town Maine, boy, girl, secrets from the past, etc. all the elements!

    The narration is wonderful Andi Arndt and Sebastian York are fantastic. 5 well-deserved stars!

    Notes for potential readers: some strong language and lots of descriptions of intimacy.

    Credit worthy? Absolutely!

    I hope you found my review helpful, if so would you please take a moment and select 'yes' below? Consider following me on Audible.

    "Lots of sex scenes"

    Ok. I found the last 2.5 hours interesting. The first part of the book has so many descriptive sex scenes that the story line was overwhelmed. The plot has some interesting twist and ask some interesting questions of the reader. Deals with consequences and responsibility and some other issues, but mostly in the last couple of hours of the book. This book could have been a five if the writer had really fleshed out the characters from the beginning. Not sure I will read the next book in the series. The issues were what made the read!

    Story
    "Tired and cliche"

    It was okay, but the Prince Charming and meek female bit is so weak and cliche. The girl became increasingly irritating with her insecure/unsure self-focused whining. Matt was a little too good to be true as the (also cliche) reformed playboy who learned the err of his ways and of course she was the ultimate solution and key to his complete reform. 'Every girl in the world wanted Matt Easton and he only wanted me' was just one of countless moments that had me rolling my eyes. I just couldn't really get excited to tune back into the story like I can for most of the books I choose.

    "Slightly Different Romance"

    Fresh enough to give it a listen. Due respect to the actor, but the male narrator of the book is on EVERY adult story that comes out and is really getting old. He's fine, it's just that he's only able to change his delivery so much. The female narrator was great.

    Story was different enough to make it interesting, but you could see the ending coming a mile away. Sex scenes were somewhat predictable and the story of the female character's past abuse by former boyfriend was not worth the it, when it was finally told.

    "Cute but could have been shorter"

    Towards the end of this book I was exhausted by the heroine. It started out cute but quickly became a back and forth that simply dragged.
