Summary

"You've done better."

With one uncharacteristically sassy tweet to her longtime celebrity crush, Zoe Miller's life turns upside down. Ultrahot A-lister Chase Covington doesn't just respond to Zoe's tweet, he does the unthinkable: he messages Zoe directly. Now she must decide between walking away or meeting her crush in person.

Chase knows better than to trust anyone from the Internet, but Zoe's saucy challenge has totally caught his interest - and her girl-next-door personality is keeping it. He's been burned enough to know he needs to keep his heart close. But his feelings for Zoe might be a lot more than just an online flirtation. He just has to convince her...

When the press gets wind of Zoe and Chase's secret relationship, their romance turns into tabloid headlines. Will they be able to hold on to their Hollywood love story?

😀

So Good! It was really funny. Interesting mention of James Cruz and the Monterran Royals. I was surprised Bellamy Sullivan didn't have a cameo at the mention of stylists and dresses.
I read and listened to this book twice already, it is that good. The narrator was awesome.

Totally swoon-worthy ending

MY TAKE
This is a fun read, and Wilson knows how to build sexual tension without crossing the line into open door scenes which I prefer not to read about. The story did seem to center a lot on the physical parts of the relationship, which was my only complaint. I would have loved to see just a bit more of the mental/emotional connection Zoe and Chase have going for them. They're there. They just take the back seat to the physical attraction.

I listened to the audiobook, and the narrator was great!

How old were they again?

The H/h seemed very immature at moments. The dialogue reminded me of someone in high school, maybe junior high, at times. Also the narrator was horrible! Her voice for a grown man sounded like a preteen surfer. The moments when it should have been sensual or steamy it just wasn’t! She did NOT deliver!

Ironic

I thought it was kind of funny that even though Zoe was the one who was waiting to have sex until marriage, she was the one who was always wanting Chase to be more physical.

this one is bad about my pet peeve w/audio books

Having difficulty with this one. There are lots of places where there is no differentiation between thought and dialogue. That does a serious number on the enjoyability of the book. The inner rambling of the female lead goes to the point of irritation. She tells him she is celibate until until marriage, then get bent out of shape when he doesn't kiss her...

playback had some skips. Story was 100%

I read this book when it published and decided to go back through my old favorites on audio. After 100+ stories, this is still one of my favorites and I absolutely loved reliving Chase and Zoe.
The audio itself had some glitches, where it sounded like it was skipping or fast forwarding. I had to super slow down playback or rewind for some spots and for others it just was like that.

Not Good and a little Smarmy

This is a terrible book. Very poor writing and a failure from the start.

The problem is Chase, the superstar in question instantly falls in love with Zoe from her tweet because it was so different and challenging but it's not even clear what she tweeted other than "he was kind of flat." I listened to that 9 times to see if I missed something witty or charming. I didn't. Bailey Carr's gives a skin crawling narration that makes it seem like she's in a porn novel and not this. It's all breathy, "wannabe sexy" and weird. Chase isn't treated as though he's a real human by Zoe at all. I understand she's star stuck, literally every Zoe thought is about Chase's perfect body, perfect abs, perfect hands, perfect smile and overall perfection. I get it he's perfect, move on already it was becoming maddening. How about giving the guy a personality and while we're at it giving Zoe a personality. At some point the author decided hey, what would make Zoe seem interesting is to make all her Tweets, silly "Trivia Questions." Gee, yeah, that adds a lot of layers to Zoe. We do meet Zoe's family who all have Z names and they hold hands and prey before bedtime. Awww.... That way our vestal virgin Zoe can continue to fantasize about Chase. Why do the women in these stories always have to be virgins or celibate? Who writes this stuff?

I like these kind of cheesy Cinderella kind stories, but usually the Famous person has a lot of layers and the person they are attracted to, treat them like real people, not afraid to call them out, are their own people (sort of). I'm on Chapter 8 and none of that has happened yet. Chase is on a sexy pedestal and I don't like Zoe at all. Scratch that, there's nothing there to like or dislike. She's a blank slate. There is absolutely NO reason for someone like Chase to fall instantly and madly in love with Zoe over that one stupid, innocous tweet and that's where this novel falls apart. None of their twitter banner has been witty or charming and it's not clear what was said that caught his eye in the first place. Without that being well established it's hard to just go with this story. There's zero basis for this "relationship." Did I mention I feel like I'm listening to a bad religious porn novel?
