Cole Masten. Abandoned by his superstar wife, Hollywood’s Perfect Husband is now Hollywood’s Sexiest Bachelor: partying hard and screwing even harder. Watch out Los Angeles, there’s a new bad boy in town.

Summer Jenkins. That’s me, a small town girl stuck in Quincy, Georgia. I cook some mean chicken and dumplins, can bluff a grown man out of his savings in poker, and was voted Most Friendly my senior year.

We were from different worlds. Our lives shouldn’t have collided. But then Cole Masten read a book about my small town. And six months later, his jet landed on our dusty airstrip, and he brought Hollywood with him.

From the start, I knew he was trouble. For our town. And for me.

Sometimes, opposites just aren’t meant to attract..

EXCERPT:

When the door to the production trailer burst open, it brought with it a wave of heat and beauty. Cole looked up from the storyboards and locked eyes with Summer, who blew across the room at him like a tornado on tilt.

“There’s no love story between Ida and Royce.” Summer snapped, throwing down the script, pages fluttering down between them. In the small trailer, conversations stalled and he could feel the attention turn their way. “I’ve read the book. Three times!”

It was good to know that someone had read the damn book. Cole glanced down at her temper tantrum of a mess and back up, raising his eyebrows mildly. “It’s a movie,” he said, turning back to the storyboards. “The writers are adding some excitement. It’s normal. You’d know that if you were in this business.” The dig was unnecessary but he couldn’t help it. This woman turned him into the devil.

“I read the first script. The one you sent over with my contract. Ida and Royce hated each other. Why would Royce…” she snatched up a page from the ground and read out a line. “pushes Ida against the file cabinet and kisses her passionately.” She balled up the page and threw it down to the ground and he could see, in her eyes, the panic. Panic. An unexpected reaction.

“We’ll use that,” Don made the dangerous move of stepping in, putting a soft hand on her shoulder. “You don’t understand. The passion from their hatred will make it hotter.”

“No.” Summer said, her face hard, her eyes on Cole. “It doesn’t make it hotter. It makes it stupid.”

“Aww… come on, Summer.” Cole chided, stepping closer, his hand reaching out to pull at her wrist. She fought him, yanking it back and the moment of their bodies meeting didn’t happen. He leaned down and whispered, right against her ear, the smell of her apple-scented lotion enough to make him want to empty out the production trailer right that moment. “Sure it does.”

She jerked back and twisted away. “If he kisses me on camera I’m going to lose it.” She shot at Don, pointing an accusatory finger in Cole’s direction.

“I know you will,” Cole laughed, crossing his arms to fight from reaching out. “You’ll fall apart under my mouth, baby.”

Summer screamed in response, her hands thrown up in frustration, and spun to leave, her script left behind, the slam of the exit door loud in the full production trailer.

“That went well,” Cole mused. He linked his hands and rested them on his head, rolling his shoulders back. Panic. She’d had panic in her eyes. Fuck.

“What do you expect?” Don said. “You threw this on her without warning. I told you we should have met with her this morning, gone over the changes to prepare her. But no – you just wanted to dump it on her via call sheets and sides.”

“Dump it on her? I was People’s Sexiest Man last year. She’s not mentally adjusting to a war camp for God’s sake. How hard is it to kiss me?”

“It’s actually three kisses,” a dark-haired PA to his left pointed out. “And a grope.”

He gave her a hard look and she withered a little.

“I’ll go talk to her,” Don said. “Eileen, you shoot #4 and I’ll talk to Summer. I want to try to get #14 shot at eleven so let’s get our asses in gear and get this done.”

“I’ll talk to her.” Cole stepped in. “You shoot #4 and I’ll talk to her.”

“No,” Don snapped. “With my luck you two would make up and any authenticity to the scene would disappear. Just stay away from her and be ready at eleven.”

Cole chewed on his cheek, then nodded. “Fine.” Don was right. He should stay away from her. Far. Far away.

REVIEW

Michelle’s Review – ♥♥♥♥♥ hearts… make that 10 hearts brilliant hearts!

If I was a petrol head and Hollywood Dirt was a car, then that car would be without a doubt a Bugatti Veyron. The book is that freaking brilliant!! Totally top-notch read again from the mind of Alessandra Torre.

From page one I was lost in the world of Summer and Cole and it honestly didn’t let up till the last page, this is easily one of those must read in one sitting books and then pretty much has you wanting to go right back to the start and read it again in case you missed a tiny morsel.

Hollywood descends on Southern and Southern takes on Hollywood. Told in 3rd person with a ‘saga’ feel to their story, it’s brilliantly written, captivating to the point you can feel the heat and taste the dirt on your tongue. You can feel the clash of classes and clash of Southern hospitality with the Hollywood self-absorbed.

I have to mention the humour, because when you least expect it Hollywood Dirt had me completely laughing out loud. When Cole walked into his new residence, the opening lines, OMG how it was delivered was hilarious in my eyes. Alessandra is so damn clever at how she weaves her stories. They are informative, emotional and ooze drama but have wit woven in when you least expect it.

Hollywood Dirt could easily itself end up on the big screen screen, it has every ingredient in it to make a perfect A lister Romantic box-office blockbuster.

I am pretty certain I will never ever forget, Ben, Justin, Brad, Summer and Cole and I definitely won’t ever forget Cocky!

I can’t reiterate enough if you want more from your stories than just romance, a brilliant back-story, a fantastic feel and to feel like your living right in the middle of it with them, feeling everything they do. If you like books with ‘feels’ then this has it aplenty and with bells on.

I wanted to eat Summer’s food, I wanted to kick my feet up with her and her Mum on the porch, I absolutely wanted to be there in the heat with them. I wanted to be the friend to Summer that Quincy wouldn’t let her have, I wanted to shout at Quincy for their treatment.

I got to read Hollywood Dirt as an ARC and I’m straight off to pre-order it to. I also need to have this in paperback, it’s just too good to not have it in any version I can get it in. ☺ 10 star read if not more, I really did love it that much.
