Hidden Hollywood by Kylie Gilmore (Book 1 of A Happy Ending Book Club series)



Hidden Hollywood (Happy Endings Book Club, Book 1) by [Gilmore, Kylie]

About:
She’s on top…
When superstar actress Claire Jordan researched her role for the Fierce Trilogy movies, she never expected the bond she feels with the author and her romance book club aka The Happy Endings Book Club. Soon Claire finds herself confessing her secret longing for a regular guy—no more egocentric wealthy players—and the book club is all too ready to help. In disguise as a regular girl, she’s all set for a date with book-club-approved Josh Campbell.

He’s on top…
Billionaire tech CEO Jake Campbell is weary of gold-digging women, especially the glamorous superficial types. So when his identical twin Josh calls in a favor asking Jake to step in as him on a date, Jake figures one of Josh’s cute girl-next-door types might be just what he needs. One night of passion with the sweet girl-next-door leaves Jake wanting more, except she seems to have vanished.

Sometimes a Happy Ending is just the beginning.

MY REVIEW:



Hidden Hollywood (Happy Endings Book Club, Book 1) by [Gilmore, Kylie]
    Discovering new authors is a really big joy for me and sometimes it’s scary. It makes me wonder, am I going to like this book? Will the characters be good, deep, and relatable? Sometimes I even put off reading a book that sounds great because I don’t know the author. I am getting over this flaw though because when this book was delivered to my kindle account, I read it that night. That’s right I almost finished the book the same night, but when it became one in the morning and I had to be up at six, well I forced myself to go to sleep. Yes it took forcing! So, what made this so good? Let me tell you.
                First we have a powerful woman who has made her life what she has wanted her whole life. She is successful, rich, famous, and genuinely liked. She may be rich and famous but she stayed true to who she was and is, her true self. She doesn’t need a man to ‘take care of her’, she would like one to love her for who she is, not her celebrity status.  Claire Jordan wants a small town, descent guy to treat her as though she was a normal woman. Her book club loves the idea and decides to make her idea a reality.
                Second character is a alpha male twin, that knows what he wants and doesn’t stop until it’s his. He is funny, easy going, rich from using his brain, so yep he is also very smart. Jake Campbell’s twin brother is a hometown good normal guy that Claire’s book club thinks she will like. Men may grow up but these two never learn. They decide to switch places and Jake goes out with Claire, not knowing who she really is. The chemistry is there right away, sizzling even. They are good at talking and have a great time together. The problem is they are both lying about their true identity. What is supposed to be one date and done, becomes a mess of lies, messages getting crossed, paparazzi sightings, and a lot more.

                Hidden Hollywood was a great read, full of the things I love. Laughter, friendship, secrets, steamy love scenes, and two strong willed people. What happens to these two will make you laugh, get you mad, and make you wonder what could possibly happen next! The book is out and ready for you to buy, so go for it! Keep reading, laughing, and traveling from your comfort spot.
