In fact she feels messy, inelegant and out of control. With the rest of her life coming up fast, she's terrified she'll forever be all over the place. When a chance meeting in a crowded pub changes everything, can she face the challenges love, and the movie business, have in store for her? Joseph Ascher hit the big time in a big way and he loved every second, until he realised all he'd ever be was a pretty face. When he thinks he'd found something with meaning in his life, can he stop acting long enough to let the shy girl in the blue shirt see he's really falling for her? And what about all the people lining up to get between them?
Babysitting a disenchanted movie star leads to love in Adams’s entertaining tale of celebrity life, which is balanced by a sober message of support for victims of harassment. When publicity assistant Andromeda “Andi” Hart first sees handsome Joe Ascher, she playfully sticks her tongue out at him. She’s horrified to discover that Joe is a cynical movie star that she’s assigned to monitor during a big film event. Although Andi salvages Joe’s reputation after he gets drunk, her job is jeopardized, but Joe, tired of using his fame to take advantage of others, gets Andi hired as his publicity assistant. The entertainment industry’s warped values are highlighted when Joe’s producer hits on Andi and her pleas for help are ignored. Additional drama and tension arise as Joe and Andi’s very different worldviews threaten their relationship. Vivid, fresh descriptions and apropos movie titles for chapter headings further enhance this thoughtful story. (BookLife)
