Breaking Hollywood by Samantha Towle
4.5 Astro-F***ING-Nomical CROWNS
Breaking Hollywood follows Gabe and Ava as they navigate being roomates, employee and employer, and their ever increasing attraction for one another, and Samantha Towle once again delivers a romantic comedy that is sweet, endearing, and, oh, so sexy.
Gabe seems to be your stereotypical Hollywood star – playboy, insanely attractive, and an abundance of confidence. Gabe’s wit and humor, though, is what not only makes him stand out from other heroes but also makes him incredibly charming and irresistible. Throughout the novel, it is clear that Gabe has demons that he is escaping from and his behavior indicates how deeply they affect him, which just adds another layer to this seemingly devilish heartthrob. The final piece that will win over the hearts of readers is the way he loves Ava and the choices he makes to be a better person.
Ava is a little down on her luck in this book, which makes her endearing and relatable. What I love most about her character, though, is how she continues to carry an optimistic outlook on life, refusing to believe that all is lost. Like Gabe, her wit and humor are also incredible enticing and make me love her as a heroine.
This romantic comedy has it all. Readers will laugh at the antics of these two from the very first page, and their battle of wits only continues to entertain us while also building the insane physical and emotional chemistry between the two. As they move into relationship territory, readers will become enamored with them as a couple, and when conflict and climax develop, it hurts to see the betrayal and mistrust between them. The end of the story couldn’t have been better as Samantha Towle gives us the happily-ever-after we desire while also showcasing the evolution of the main characters.
Breaking Hollywood is another must read from one of my favorite authors. She never diasspoints, and she certainly hasn’t with this new romance.
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
A hot and hilarious standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author Samantha Towle…
It wasn’t supposed to be like this. I wasn’t supposed to be boyfriendless, homeless, and jobless at twenty-eight. And I most definitely wasn’t supposed to hit Hollywood’s resident bad boy Gabriel Evans with my car and break his foot.
Now, my guilt and homelessness have me living in his apartment, taking care of him, while he’s incapacitated.
Living with the hottest guy in Hollywood, who I’ve had a crush on forever, doesn’t sound like a chore, right?
Gabriel Evans is a crude, rude asshole who drinks way too much and smokes like a chimney.
The sooner I get a new place to live and when Gabriel’s foot is healed, I’m out of here.
So, why do I keep forgetting to check the classifieds? And why do I keep getting flustered when I see him shirtless?
Breaking Hollywood wasn’t part of the plan. But neither is falling in love with him.
