I began this book with the understanding that it was going to be a light-hearted, fun read. Emma is about to get her big acting break. She is cast as the lead role of a modern day Pride and Prejudice movie opposite the already famous actor, Reid Alexander. The book is told from Reid and Emma's points of view.

By doing this, the author made me really like Emma - I knew how she was feeling - conflicted, excited, tired, overwhelmed, confused. But, it also made me strongly dislike Reid. He was just not a nice guy and I kept hoping that Emma would see through his facade.

Part of the reason I strongly disliked Reid (other than his personality), was because there was another guy named Graham. He was Emma's running buddy and friend. Though the story was never told from his perspective, you can see that there's something different about him. He's kind, caring, and funny. He and Emma are comfortable with each other even during some of the most awkward moments. He never gets jealous or visually upset because Emma is falling for Reid. I'm a root-for-the-underdog kind of girl, so I was sincerely hoping that Emma would see the light and pick Graham.

This book was laugh out loud funny at some points. In telling each character's past, there were sad moments, but they weren't heavy enough to make me feel incredibly overwhelmed by them. I would maybe recommend that older teenagers and up read this book because there is sexual content, talk of drugs and alcohol.
