After the ups and downs of the last year, Alec is worried that he doesn’t have a place in the music world, that perhaps everything that has happened has made him appear unlikable. So when he’s offered the chance to go onto a reality tv show to try and rebuild his image, he jumps at the opportunity. The cast is full of other celebrities, all hoping to restart their careers in various ways, and if he can cozy up to a female, it will definitely make him look good, and he could gain a potential ally in the show. Jillian just might be the perfect person. What could possibly go wrong?
Some of the supporting characters were so much fun, I wasn’t quite ready to let them go, and then I saw that one of my favs would have her own book down the road, and I couldn’t be happier. The setting created some funny situations amongst the characters, and the characters were wonderful, all of it combined made the book really hard to put down at the end of the day.
I’ve read all the books that have come before this one in the series, and I think this one would tie for my most favorite with The Extra. I really loved how well Alex and Jillian got along. I loved Jillian’s personality and how complimentary she was to Alec. Because they’re surrounded by people all the time, and they’re being filmed, there aren’t many opportunities for true alone time, and that creates the perfect setting for a nice, slow-burn. Such a great addition to the series!
