When I read this blurb and saw the words "Satan's son" I knew I had to read the book. I mean how can't that make for an exciting character? To be honest, Dakota (Satan's son) doesn't have the lead male role. It belongs to Jameson, a fallen angel who is pretending to work for Dakota but is really lessening the damage Satan's son is causing on unsuspecting humans. Jameson is one of those characters who you have to love. He shares the POV with Aly, and I found myself really looking forward to his c ...more

My Review: Overall, I think Hollyweird by Terri Clark was a super fun, quick read. If you find yourself overwhelmed after reading books with heavy topics and you are looking for a story that is entertaining, will make you laugh, and doesn't require putting on your thinking caps, then this book is definitely worth picking up.

Hollyweird's premise is simple. Aly King wins a contest that was being promoted in EnterTEENment Magazine. What does

3.5 stars - This book wasn't as complicated and challenging as most books out there, but I found myself enjoying this paranormal romantic comedy quite a bit.

Despite its simplicity, I thought Clark did put a lot of thought into the story how the story unfolded, especially with the seven sins and inserting her smart quips about this or that. She even went as far as giving us a personal soundtrack through Jameson's ringtones that appropriately goes with the scene. And I liked how Clark kept her vil

I won this book through a giveaway from Library Girl Reads.


This is a cute, funny, fluffy light, easy quick read. The blurb tells it all. Paranormal romance comedy - a genre I haven't heard of until now. Hell, maybe this author just invented it for all I know. It's not hard to see where the story is going but that doesn't really matter. Don't think about it much, just enjoy the ride like a good movie simply for the entertainment factor. I really do recommend this book it's just fun. The soundtrac

I enjoyed this book. It is a quick, light read. I read it in less than a day while we were sitting in our hotel room in-between doing things on our vacation. This story takes place in modern times and really does a good job of capturing the way tweens act about their favorite actors. Unfortunately, the author sometimes seems to try too hard to sound “young” using often outdated slang. That aspect is a bit annoying, as is the Des’ propensity for making up slang words that sometimes took me longer ...more

This story was actually what I thought it was going to be. Fun! This story has a lot of supernatural to it and a touch of girly goodness. It wasn’t like over the top where it’s only bad thing after bad thing happening to the main characters. It wasn’t dark read but just light, airy entertainment. And when something bad did happened, the characters somehow make it the most hilarious thing ever.

Since this was such a quick read, I don't want to give too much away so this is short review!

When I started reading Hollweird I was a bit put off by the overwhelming amount of pop culture references and the odd 'dialect' Aly and her friend Des have going on, but the story quickly grew on me.

The book is fast paced and a very quick read. The dialogue between Des and Aly is funny and feels like a real friendship. They may be opposites, but they understand each other so well, it makes sense that they are friends, almost like Shawn and Gus on Psych :) (See, I can do pop culture references,

You know when you've just finished a really dark and heavy book and you just need a little pick me up to get you back on your feet? Hollyweird was that book for me, it was happy and funny and very clean and bright. Sure, you've got the devil's son trying to suck the life out of wannabe stars but it was a very light read.

There wasn't too much substance to this book. Really all it is about is Des, Aly and Jameson trying to derail the evil Dakota's plans, no internal battles, no massively deep pers

Hollyweird by Terri Clark is a book that delivers what it’s supposed to: a fun and light story from the viewpoints of one girl who meets a celebrity that turns out to be a demon and the celebrity’s personal assistant who’s a fallen angel determined to get his wings back by stopping his boss’ unknown evil plan. Although the romance between Aly and Jameson was a little instantaneous (but cute), the characters were rather ordinary, and they sometimes seemed to sound like an adult instead of a teen; ...more

A cute and simple girly girl story. Really easy to read without having to give much thought to what was going on because it was your everyday teen groupie cliche with some "light" paranormal additives tossed in for flavor.

The characters were okay for the most part with my favorite being Jameson (yum) and my least favorite being Aly. I just felt she was pretty ditzy not believing stuff when it was right in front of her! One of my favorite things was Jameson's phone. How cool it would be to have o

Since I live in Southern California, I find it hard to resist send-ups of Hollywood. When I saw the title and book cover for Terri Clark’s newest book, Hollyweird, I cracked up and so would anyone else who’s walked down Hollywood Blvd. There have to be more weird people per square inch there than anywhere I’ve ever been. When I ran across Hollyweird, I had just finished reading a lot of noir thrillers, so light, fluffy and funny looked like a godsend. Read the rest of my review at http://popcorn ...more

I really liked this book. It was a cute read-in-one-sitting type of book, that is fun and light and does not make you think too hard. I loved how easy it was to follow and Aly and Jameson were really cute. I loved the quirkiness and all of crazy situations Aly, Desi, Missy, and Jameson found themselves in. The only thing I really wasn't crazy about was the constant slang used, not only in the dialog, but in the narration as well, but that wasn't a complete turn off though. Overall, it was a cute ...more

I will never be able to look at Jensen Ackles the same way again.

I adored this book. I loved the popular culture references, and the fact that nothing, not even the big bad, was taken too seriously. Real family relationships and friendships, as well as the ability to talk about God and spirituality without getting crazy religious--all things that make a good book to me. Not to mention the hot fallen angel who can be both earnest and snarky. Loved it.

An e-ARC was provided by the publisher through NetGalley, with no obligation to provide a positive review.

I found Hollyweird very fun and enjoyable, though the writing doesn't really do much to elevate the story or the characters beyond the cliche.

Aly and Desi are two polar opposite best friends that have won a contest to meet Dakota Danvers, the hunky star of their favorite television show, Paranormal P.I.. When they get to Los Angeles with Aly's self-obsessed, wannabe actress sister Missy as

So I'd been expecting a fun, fluffy paranormal romance from the cover and the summary and it was exactly what I got!

The story flows very easily and it was just a breeze to get through the 240 pages that make up the whole of Hollyweird. I liked the characters, and thought that they were all pretty interesting and I though Aly was a well developed character. Her sister and best friend and even Jameson slightly less so. It actually switches POV between Aly and Jameson, but I never felt like I reall

At First Sight: Aly King needs something good happening in her life, she just hasn't been the same since her mom died a couple of years ago. So when she wins a contest to meet Paranormal P.I. star Dakota Danvers - which includes an all-expense paid trip to L.A. - Aly is ready to jump on a plane with her best friend Desi and have some fun, even if her dad is making her take along her older sister Missy as a chaperon.

Overall Rating: 3.5

When Aly King wins a contest to fly out to Los Angeles (with her best friend, Des, and her older sister/chaperone Missy) to meet the Dakota Danvers, she gets much more than she bargained for. After all, Dakota is far from the perfect boy that Hollywood makes him out to be; if anything, he's downright evil--being one of Lucifer's sons and all that. More importantly, he's up to something and Aly and Des are about to wind up in the middle of it all; luckily, they'll have some hel

Hollyweird is a fun, quirky fast read that gives the battle of good versus evil a new and relatable spin from anything you've seen before. Clever use of the 7 Deadly Sins really make you consider just how easily you could give up your soul.

Told in dual narrative, Aly (human) and Jameson (Fallen Angel) giving insight into the plot and character interactions on multiple levels. Aly won a competition to meet her favorite TV star, she takes her BFF and her older sister, Mis

I got to meet Terri Clark at the Colorado Teen Literature Conference in March, and as much as reviewing the books of someone you’ve met, talked to and actually liked is kinda scary, I just knew I had to request Hollyweird when I saw it on Netgalley. First of all, that cover is super cool, and so different from everything else in YA out there right now, and the synopsis just sounds fun, don’t you think?

Originally reviewed on reutreads, a young adult book blog.

Hollyweird had a great premise that I couldn't wait to check out. When I saw it on NetGalley, I was psyched to read this funny and cute sounding paranormal. I read it all in one sitting while I was bored on a plane. And my final thoughts: could probably have been better.

Hollyweird does have a really interesting premise. I loved the lighthearted approach to paranormal that not the "I love you! But we can't be together because we're cousins

I had high hopes for this novel. Sadly they were not met. It took me long time to read this book but I did finally push through. I found that this book relied more on the dialogue, references, and hipster language than the actual story line. Not to mention if you are an avid reading and movie watch like me you will probably pick up on some stuff that reminds you of movies and other stuff. Basically Aly, Des, and Aly’s sister Missy walk onto the set of their favourite TV show to find it over run ...more

Terri Clark feels blessed to demonstrate her passion for young adult fiction as both a teen librarian and author. For as long as she can remember she’s been fascinated with the paranormal, so it’s little wonder her stories dabble in the dark and different.

“Are we talking hell hounds and flames here?" Des asked, pacing at the end of our beds.

I repeated the question and gave a heaving sigh of relief when Jameson said I had the wrong idea.

"He's going to 'lead us into temptation.'"

"That doesn't sound so bad," Des said with a cheeky grin.”
