(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Emily Mah Tippetts.) 22-year-old Chloe doesn't have the most structured of backgrounds, but now she's on track to be valedictorian. Until she graduates, she has no intentions of having a sexual relationship with anyone; she doesn't need the stress, she doesn't want to have a child out of wedlock like her mother did, and she also has no intentions of becoming involved with a movie star. Jason has been in several movies, and now has a fan group full of semi-crazy, crying girls. It's Chloe that he likes though, and he's happy just being her friend if it means that he gets to spend time with her. Can Chloe and Jason ever be together though? Their backgrounds are so different, and Chloe doesn't want to be followed by the press for the rest of her life. Can this fairytale ever be what Chloe dreams of? This was an interesting romance, where not everything was sunshine and laughter, and bad things happen to good people. Chloe has a complicated background, whilst Jason has fame to follow him around, and not everything is as it seems. Chloe was a strong female lead but I did feel that some of her ideas and principles were fairly rigid and maybe even a little too severe. She didn't believe in sex before marriage - fair enough, she wants to focus on her education - fair enough, but don't then be surprised if your ex-boyfriend broke up with you because he wanted sex and you wouldn't go there. She didn't want Jason to pay for stuff for her, and felt bad even accepting something small like a coffee from him, I mean I understand that she wanted to be independent, and didn't want him to treat her like he owned her, but the bloke is a movie-star for goodness sake! I'm sure she could have accepted something from him, when he offered, even if only to make his life easier, especially when it was something that would keep her safe, or mean that she could see Jason more frequently. I think Chloe maybe took this 'independent woman' thing a little too far, who doesn't want a man to treat her like a princess occasionally? I liked Jason, although I felt sorry for him that Chloe dragged her heels so much, and made things like keeping her safe from crazy fans more difficult. I don't think you can really blame a bloke for wanting his girlfriend safe and nearby. He did go a little nuts at one point when one of his co-stars was pretending that he was having an affair with her, but I could forgive him for that as if Chloe had believed her things could have been very different! I was really disappointed with Chloe's friend Matthew's behaviour. I thought that they were good together, and at one point I even thought that Chloe and Matthew would make a better pair than Chloe and Jason, but the way that Matthew then behaved towards Chloe was awful, and I really disliked him for it. Although this was a romance, Chloe and Jason were not 'fated' to be with one another. They had to work hard at their relationship, and it wasn't all some kind of fairytale, which made things a bit more realistic. There was also a lot of movie-stuff in the book that made that part of the storyline more interesting and 'real' too. Overall; an interesting and realistic contemporary romance. 7 out of 10.show more
