|In this captivating standalone romance from the USA Today bestselling author of Stone Walls, Hollywood’s hottest actor meets his dream woman: a free spirit who has no idea who he is.
After personal heartbreak and professional setbacks, Landon Price is running on empty. If he doesn’t take a break from the public eye soon, he’ll risk becoming another cautionary tale in a town that’s full of them. So in between film projects, Landon asks his agent to clear his schedule and then he simply . . . vanishes. Renting a discreet home on a remote Hawaiian beach for the summer, Landon begins to recharge. And in the process of finding himself, he meets a beautiful, feisty local who challenges everything he thinks he knows.
Zara Jobert has no interest in being a conquest for a cocky playboy from the mainland—even one with undeniable charisma and movie-star good looks. So she’s pleasantly surprised when the handsome newcomer’s persistent advances mellow into cozy banter and a sneakily seductive intimacy. When Landon reveals his true identity, Zara’s hurt that he lied, but she doesn’t care that he’s famous. Unfortunately, not everyone feels the same way. And falling for Landon might come with a heartbreaking choice—between Zara’s old life, and a new love.
Look for A. M. Madden’s thrilling True Heroes series
The first pages of Vanishing Act by A.M. Madden had me guessing if I choose the right book to read because the beginning of the story just feels a little to “Made up”. Everything about the male lead felt kind of fake. YES I KNOW it is a book and that means everything is “Made up”. But I believe the trick is to let the reader imagine that it could actually happen and that feeling was missing for me.
Maybe it was because the story seemed to only scratch the surface of the characters at that point and I was kind of waiting for it to dig deeper.
After a while I kind of started to like the other characters of the story and so somehow the male lead snuck up to me from behind again and there I was suddenly liking the story … because of a PET …
The Blurb really gives away most of the story so the little left I would hate to spoiler.
Therefore I can only say that the story itself is an enjoyable read and I can fully recommend it to anyone who feels that this blurb might be something for him.
