Hollywood Holiday is a wonderful romantic story. I haven't read the first book in the series. I didn't need to. Ms Summers wrote this sequel in a way that one doesn't need to read the first book in order to read the second.
Jen is going back home after spending time in rehab. Inside the plane she meets Gunner, who is also flying to LA to visit his family. Jen has a phobia: She doesn't like flying. But the goodlooking man-Gunner-sitting next to her helps her through the turbulences until they arri

Hollywood Holiday is the sequel to Hollywood Ever After which I previously reviewed and loved. In this book you have Jenny, a famous Hollywood actress who is returning home after a stint in rehab for a problem with alcohol. She's terrified to fly (unless she's drunk), but the man she ends up seated next to on the plane is more than kind and helpful to her while she's freaking out, and he doesn't even know who she is. By the time they arrive in L.A., they both are interested in seeing ea

I have to admit it at the very beginning that I haven’t read the first book in the series. But with romance novel series I had usually seen that though the characters often overlap, each book can stand on their own. And it is with this belief that I picked up this book. I was right and though reading the first book in the series will definitely be an advantage, you can read this as a standalone too.

So, Jen is famous for all the right and the wrong reasons. As she is on her way back from a rehab,

Rating: 4.5 stars.

Get ready, because with Hollywood Holiday you’re in for a ride!

Jen Fleming is a Hollywood actress; she’s a party girl, a trouble maker. Paparazzi follow her every move and after one too many bad decisions she only wants to be her old self again. She just wants to be Jenny again; the woman, the actress. Without the baggage and problems trailing right behind.

Things start looking up when on the flight home she sits next to a gorgeous, sweet, and completely swoon-worthy ex-marine.

I loved reading and sharing Hollywood Ever After so I was really excited when I got to help celebrate the release of Hollywood Holiday earlier this month. Of course, I have been looking forward to sharing my review with you ever since! This one, set again in Hollywood, has a gorgeous leading lady with an Oscar-full of troubles she is trying to overcome. The hunky hero has some healing of his own to do as well. They have 316 pages to figure out if they can work through their individual problems a

Hollywood Holiday was a cute, quick read with the added bonus of it being based around Christmas. I knew what the outcome would be because Hollywood Holiday was predictable, romance stories in general usually are, but that in no way stopped me enjoying the journey to the sweet ending.

I loved the easy writing style which in turn made for an easy read. The main characters were well developed and there was a good supporting cast of other lesser characters. One thing that did confuse me was who some

Ok, I've received an ARC of this book a while ago but I hadn't had time to read it up till one day ago when I started this amazing book!

I loved how you don't have to read the first one to really understand Jenny and Gunner's story!

I loved all about it and I'm looking forward to read other books of this author!

I was very grateful to receive an ARC copy from the publisher. Such an engaging love story for the holidays! Sensual and with a happy ending! I hope there will be more book in the Red Carpet Series!

I didn't like this as much as I thought I would, or wanted to. Mostly, because I thought Gunner was a shit.

Here's the thing. She kept her secret for, what, 2-3 days? That's fair, and frankly, he kept a secret too... and he kept it for the exact same reason: because when people find out his secret, they stop seeing him and a relationship becomes impossible. So he should fucking understand. His reaction was so spectacularly shitty and over-the-top that nothing short of utter groveling would redeem
This is an almost stupidly sweet story, but it definitely is an enjoyable book and who don't like a happy ending.

Even though all those situations where Gunner and Jen was accidently thrown together was a bit ridiculous, and in my opinion wasn't necessary, it didn't hurt the story all that much.

Sasha Summers spins a stellar sequel.

Try saying that three times, fast!

Yes dear ones, HOLLYWOOD HOLIDAY is everything we can expect coming off the HOLLYWOOD EVER AFTER high. In a delightful twist, the second book of the Red Carpet series focuses on two fresh characters—Jenny Fleming, and actress and good friend of Claire and Josh Wiley—and Claire’s younger brother Ben “Gunner” Foster, a combat veteran who lost a limb.

This unlikely pair meets en flight to LA. Jenny, a recovering alcoholic, is ter

I am sure you all remember how much I loved Hollywood Ever After by Sasha Summers. It was a 5 star read and if possible I loved Hollywood Holiday even more! It was just a wonderful read and at times gave me a bubbly-omg-that-is-horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach when something bad was going on but at the same time that instant connection between Jen and Gunner . . . wow.

Gunner was wonderful, he is an ex-Marine, loves to cook, is super sweet and more. I just wanted to hug him and never le

This book had a little bit of everything that you could want. From a hot actress to a soldier, drama, and a sweet yet complicated love.
After going to rehab, Jenny is trying to stay out of trouble and get her life back together. She has been hurt time and time again. While on her way back home, she meets Gunner, a big, sexy, bad-ass ex-Marine with dimples who allows her to curl up on him during the flight. Jenny doesn't want to trust anyone with her heart again but something about this glorious

I'm glad I decided to accept to review this book. It was sweet, fast-pacing and enjoyable book. I liked that it is Holiday themed, as I haven't really read any Holiday/Christmas themed book this year.

Jen/Jenny/Jennifer, or whichever you prefer, is a famous actres. The paparazzi are watching her every move, and often making her life hell. On her return from rehab, she met Gunner on the plane. He's an ex-marine, a very-hot-and-nice-and-coc

So I was looking forward to this book because I thought Hollywood ever after was adorable.
This book was cute and had some great elements but the thing that irked me a bit was the actual love story between Gunner and Jen.

In the story it is portrayed as a falling in love story but it happened so quick I couldn't get the true essence of that bond. If it was more portrayed as love at first sight it would have been more believable to me. Due to

This book has a hot ex-Marine in it, does there need to be anything else to sell you on reading it?
Ok how about the fact that the author knows how to write characters in a way that you feel like each of them are your friends? Like in book #1 of this series one of the main characters just happens to be a Hollywood star and just like the first book the fame theme never overshadows the love story.
I also really love that we get to read more about Josh & Claire and their families.
