Blurb :A fling of a lifetime…With only a month left of filming on location in New Zealand, the last thing stuntman Eli Black is looking for is a relationship. He made a promise to his brother before he died that his next stop would be Hollywood. But Eli’s will is put to the test when he meets the sexy new makeup artist, Tabby. Tabby Rogers is heading off to London to a prestigious makeup artist school, and after her ex ruined her previous plans to attend, she’s determined that nothing will stand in her way again. But a steamy, no-strings-attached affair with gorgeous Eli is too tempting to pass up. The sparks burn hotter than imaginable, but as responsibilities pull at them from opposite ends of the globe, it quickly becomes clear that something’s got to give. Must Tabby sacrifice her hard-won career for love? Or will Eli forever be the one who got away?
Review : When meeting Eli and Tabby, we find ourselves in the middle of a film set in New Zealand. It was a nice change to read a love story about the people behind the scenes of a large film production. The setting was believable and the dialogues felt real enough for someone who is not in this business himself. You could feel the sparks flying between them and their dialogues where witty, funny and sexy. The author manages perfectly to transfer their feelings to the reader and in total; this is a very enjoyable read. Unfortunately I was not able to give the full 5 Stars I would have liked it to have, because I could not forget that I had to struggle in the beginning to understand their attraction to each other. It felt a little too much like “InstaLove” and with this concept I have slight problems. In addition, I felt that for at least half the book Eli was missing a certain depth in his background. Tabby was described very thoroughly but when it came to Eli, he was mainly only reduced to his looks, which felt shallow to me. He was described so loving and caring that I would have loved it to hear more about his background from the beginning and not only as the story goes along. This was my first book from this author and in total it is a recommendable for readers that a looking for a “nice” (sorry Eli – no pun intended – I know YOU do not like to be called “nice”) book that is an easy read for their holidays. (Preferably at some lake in the woods – OK – THAT reference is intentional) as the description of the film set lets your mind drift easy.
