Book Review: Hollywood Heartbreaker by Alexa Aston

Being late to an interview lands her the biggest job opportunity of her life.

He may be rich and successful—but he’s just this side of miserable.

Can a wannabe be The One for the biggest star in Hollywood?

Cassie Carroll came to Hollywood with big dreams that never materialized. Acting isn’t even on the back burner anymore—it’s completely off the stove. Working for a third-rate agent, Cassie hopes to land a new job that will give her credibility, as well as help pay the rent. Late to her interview, she swerves to avoid hitting a dog—and totals the car of Hollywood’s leading action superstar. Surprisingly, she walks away from their encounter with a job—as the sexiest man alive’s personal assistant.

Rhett Corrigan is bored with the movies he makes and the drop-dead gorgeous model he’s dating. He’s afraid that Hollywood has typecast him—and that he’ll never be able to break out of his action mold and try new acting challenges. When Cassie Carroll literally slams into his life, she brings a breath of fresh air and common sense to his world. She pushes him to be a better actor and a better man.

Can these friends become lovers—and can their love survive—in a tabloid-happy town that thrives on rumors and backstabbing?

I loved everything about this book. The characters are so well-crafted and likeable, including the supporting cast. It’s a Cinderella story with some fun twists and it made me laugh. This story has everything: love, hate, joy, grief, despair and triumph and HEA. Cassie and Rhett are great together, first as friends then as more. He has a loving family and fantastic friends so Cassie’s lonely life changes for the better when she’s welcomed into Rhett’s world. There’s a vengeful ex, entitled domestic help and a drunk Eurotrash party boy, but those are all relatively minor in this sweet story. I enjoyed Rhett and Cassie’s story enough to read it again and highly recommend this book.
