3.5 One-time-read stars

A very reluctant 3.5 stars for the second half of the book..

A minus point five (-0.5) ,for the slow and unnecessary first half.Instead of watching the romance develop these two..All i got was fighting and stubborness..The author just took out the complications of a Friends with benefit idea , and literally just applied it to their situation....MINUS the sex :/ Though they were fun at times...

I paste on my most diplomatic smile, but Luke isn’t buying it.  He shakes his

Genre: NA Romance
Sensuality: PG

Rambling romance berween a famous movie star and college student. Similiar and not much improved from her last bk.

The pros are the same: appealing narrator heroine, good humor, and snappy dialogue. The cons are the same: uneven pacing and see content warning.

Content warnings: OW, h is kinda psychotic, and (view spoiler)

i remember why this book didnt rank high on my list a couple years ago when i first read it. however i really liked how it started. friends turn to fake relationship. i liked andi. her attitude, her snark, her independence, her no bs. i kinda liked lucas. he was eh. typical celeb. oh so amazingly hot and gorgeous and perfect. except. he has a temper, he’s spoiled, and he hooks up. a lot. but no he’s still perfect, totally. but andi is immune. because of course she is. but now she

Wow, just wow.

Meet Andi, She is my new favorite person!
She is fearless, blunt, annoying and oh so angry.

“I jump up and march off. Then I turn back. I grab the crutches that are resting next to Bran, and toss them several feet away. Now I can leave.”

Andi is what makes this book so great.
Her bluntness and the fact that some of her fantasies are probably illegal and that she is a “little” bit crazy made me fall completely in love with her. She is

This is a dnf for for no other reason than the h, Andie.

I liked the setting, I liked the humor, I really liked the H, Luke.

I wanted to give up a couple of times but Luke and the secondary characters were all so charming and funny that I made it to the 50% mark. But I have to give up now. I've suffered enough.
Andie is such an idiotic, self centered bitch that I don't want to read how she gets the guy in the end.

2.5 Stars (Barely)

Okay, so the only good aspect of the book was Andie as a character and the funny sarcastic tone of her POV. That said I only loved her about 75% of the time. Most of the time she was this strong and slightly cray-cray character but then came Lucas. Whenever I thought that there was going to be a development in either character to make their relationship work, what happens? Sex and then everything is forgiven or forgotten. This weakness account for the 25% of my hate because And

Andi, what can I say! Bold, funny, brash, violent, inappropriate, blunt and emotionally stunted. I love her! Luke, well he evenly matched Andi for sure. I will say I was disappointed that Andi didn't spen more time with Kat....REALLY disappointed!

This book was a bit of a rollercoaster for me. For the most part, I was totally in to it! But I was frustrated at what was happening on more than one occasion, which brought down my enjoyment factor.

Things were actually going really well, until just before the 50% mark. Luke was flirty and fun, and obviously in to Andi. Andi was stubborn and blind to Luke's feelings, even though he was clearly into her. Luke did something around the 40% mark that I couldn't stop thinking about. I couldn

OMG, again, I totally loved this book from Nicole Christie. There is something about her writing that makes you turn the pages so quick, it is almost impossible to put it down. For her previous two novels they took over my life, became an obsession for a short while. This book was no different. READING THIS BOOK I HAD NO LIFE. I couldn't even eat my lunch and dinner without reading it.

Full of witty lines, humorous plot lines and sexy blokes. The heroine, Andi, is very different from the usual le
Aug 10, 2015 rated it did not like it

Luke is a douche who spends the 2 years he knows Andi screwing around with random women practically everyday, and leaves it to Andi to "get rid" of his sex partners (yeah classy guy).

So after banging chicks for 2 years in front of Andi he decides he now wants her. Ummm, after all of his sexcapades that she's had to cleanup I really hoped that she would stand up to him. But no, she's a doormat. He even gets away with screwing an old flame while making a play for Andi at the same time.

4.5 CELEBRITY CRUSH STARS!!! WOW! I really enjoyed this book, it just really worked for me. I love how the author really knew her characters, and she did not deviate from that. Luke was such a strong hero. He was not perfect and some of his actions in the beginning I did not like, but man did he redeem himself. He fought for what he had always wanted, Andi. Andi was a very unique heroine, she had anger issues, she was awkward, and man, was she hilarious. I loved being inside her head. She was so ...more

I have to say, I liked Nicole Christie's Falling for the Ghost of You better than Celeb Crush. In Celeb Crush, the main character's dysfunctional personality was a little over the top for my preference. It was funny though, especially the internal dialogue. And I was happy about the HEA ending :)

I really enjoyed this book - it made me laugh out loud (normally I only chuckle quietly at amusing bits). It's always nice to see my country (and city where I live) mentioned as well ;).

In another author's hands this probably would have been a two star read. There were so many things that just drove me crazy! But I laughed the whole way through and I was thoroughly entertained. This is the third book I've read by Nicole Christie and they all bring the funny. Slow Burn is still my favorite though.

Luke and Andi really were fire and gasoline. So much angst and anger. I thought Andi's insecurity when it came to dating Luke was understandable. After watching all those women rotate t

Too much unresolved

Great premise and I LOVE Andi, but I think there were too many things left "unresolved" and out of character. For instance Andi is tough as nails, and I don't care if her ex and cousin were in love, what they did was horrible, and she forgave them much too easily. Also Luke's "friend" something n the way of karma should have hit her...she was a conniving witch with a capital B and nothing was resolved with her...i.e. Her career should have been ruined. And finally Luke spent t

Holy crap

I love Andi, she is hilarious. She's also 2 scoops of crazy and a side of coo coo catchoo. The book is hilarious, heart wrenching, and just awesome. Not gonna lie all the cheaters in it can just go on a cruise together... on the titanic... maybe I'm almost as crazy as Andi, but with more restraint. Luke I loved him, and hated him, but then kinda loved him again. Read it and you can see why. That's all I'm gonna say because it would just be to easy to just tell you the whole story... I'v

nice book, interesting storyline

I loved this book, Andy and Luke together was so funny, loved the dialogue between them, the scenes, Luke chasing her was nice. I loved the fact that he was her friend in the first place, he knew she was in a messy situation and he wanted to be there for her, just show up to show support and that was pretty cool. I hated the cousin and the ex boyfriend, but later on I understood them and kinda liked them too. Would definitely recommend this book to anyone!

I'm not sure how I feel about this book. In general it was okay. I liked the story and the characters and the sarcasim going back and forth. But what didn't sit well with me is how she reacted to some things. Like he calls her in the middle of the night and tells her that he slept with Kat and when she wakes up and he's there she's all snuggly and forgiving. he leaves her in the middle of an abandont parking lot in the middle of the night and accuse her of being crazy and when she sees him again ...more

Last year I somehow stumbled across Slow Burn. I loved it and because of that, I find myself periodically checking Amazon to see if another book has been added to Juliet's story. So far, no such luck. However, I did find that Nicole released this little gem! I loved it!

Andi is a crazy chick but I dig it. I can see why she is the way she is and I can also understand her reactions to things. Luke is hot and super swoon worthy!

Could not put this book down!

Andi found her boyfriend and cousin (Megan) in her bed. Break up.
When she stormed off, she met Luke. Mr. Hollywood.
All the signs were there. Luke was in love with her but she was too dense to notice.
Andi was asked by her Ex boyfriend to be Megan's bride's maid. She agreed.
She slipped a tiny lie about Luke being her boyfriend. Then KABAM! Luke came to their house.
Acted as her boyfriend. Love is in the air~

I love this author and she doesn't disappoint with this book. The hero is always perfect but it's the heroine that makes or breaks the book for me. Luckily, I really liked Andi. She was witty and sarcastic - a great combination. Some of her comments were just hilarious. Why not 5 stars? There was a stupid miscommunication that bugged me. I'm not a fan of that as a plot device. But, overall, a great read.

Rereading this book again. I am a huge fan of Nicole Christie's and I hope she writes more books. Andi is crazy as shit and Luke is charming. Andi is a hoot! I love her. In my head she looks like Shay Mitchell from Pretty Liars. I love the inner monologues and loved this book.

This story was a unique take on the celebrity romance, with Andi (the female MC) being Luke's (the male MC/superstar) "assistant to his assistant." The way Andi and Luke met and subsequently formed a relationship (professional at that point) was hilarious, as was most anything having to do with Andi in the story.

For the most part, I liked Andi's character. She was a spitfire and had a dry sense of humor (much like my own). She was very real in her insecurities about Luke's lifestyle and prior re

Andi was the highlight of this book for me. I loved reading about her, so much that all the other characters fell flat for me. She is a total b**** and she knows it. But, she's not unlikable. At least, I liked her and could see her appeal. Underneath all that snark and sass, she had a heart of gold. And I admire Ms. Christie for developing such a strong character. Rarely do we come across smart, bitchy heroines who don't mind giving the middle finger to the world. Yet, you know that when the sit ...more

This book was good, but I could say it was actually to log in my own opinion. I was ready for it to be over. However, that could be the fact that I wanted to read this other book, and I was taking to long to finish this 30 something chapter book.

Added this on 6/29/2016. Re-reading so I can add this review and finally delete this book on my e-reader. First impression — I really don’t like starting a book with too many names and trying to remember who’s who and their connections. So Luke is 6’2 and 23. How old is Andi? And I would definitely kill to get her kind of job (or maybe not). Half way through the book, I still don’t understand where Andi’s “insecurity” about her and Luke comes from. Yeah, she’s always snarky… but why? This book m ...more
I really liked this one. Andi was a hoot. I didn't think I'd like this book, because I usually don't like the celeb and normal person romances, but I took the plunge because I love the author. So glad I did! Andi's humorous but really unique voice cinched it for me. You just never knew what'd she say or do next and I loved it. I also liked that she wasn't a doormat. Some of the misunderstandings were frustrating and I wanted a bit more of a cathartic end or perhaps a bit more justice for the "vi ...more

First read: 2015?
Second read: September 2020

I think the book blurb is efficient for delving into this.

I really like Nicole Christie and I hope she writes more novels.
I would have rated this 4 stars except I felt our leading couple would be divorced within two years. This isn't even normally my type of plot but Christie wrote in a way that I was completely engaged.
There is quite a bit of deepness to the leading Lady. She has issues. Unfortunately, none of those issues actually get dealt with.

This story starts out with a Hollywood hunk needing an extra minder. That's right another minder. One whom he actually will listen too. She just happened to meet up with him after catching her cousin in bed with her fiancee. So starts a two year contract including NDA written all over it. But when she lies to her family about her love life that's when the story takes a turn. He is willing to act as her boyfriend. But what cost and who will get hurt? This was the second time I read thi
