After being dumped by her boyfriend, Piper James very publicly self-destructed, and now is on her final chance to get her career as an author back on track. Sent to the set of her book that’s being made into a movie, she’s to help the actor playing the part of her story’s hero because he’s not getting the role the way the producers expect.

Mick Blackwell doesn’t know the first thing about being in love, which is the main component of his recent role as an actor. When the author of the book that the film is based on arrives on set to help him, he can’t help but take her up on her offer. However, in the end, there’s a lot more at stake than just the movie being perfect.

The plot of this story was brilliant. I loved it from the very beginning because both characters were strong and complemented each other very well. The dialogue between them was great, and I enjoyed both their back stories. Piper with her very public breakdown almost ruining her career, and Mick with his family and branching out into films other than the action ones he’s famous for. The sex scenes were explosive and illustrated the intense chemistry between them immensely, although Piper was reluctant to start anything between them because of her recent heartbreak. Then again, it goes to show that a rebound guy can be a great thing. What I liked so much about Piper was that she was willing to take a chance on Mick, even though it wasn’t in her best interest to do so, considering her last relationship was with an actor. While with Mick, I enjoyed that he kept trying to change Piper’s mind when it came to the ground rules she’d imposed on their blossoming relationship.

Overall, Ms. Covington has done a marvellous job penning another one of her novels, which has left me fervent to read more of this series in the future. That is if there are more books to come.
