★★★★★! Hollywood Dirt (stand-alone). Opposite attracts & second chances as Hollywood comes calling on a small Southern town!

Hollywood Dirt (stand-alone) opens shortly before a Hollywood production is heading to a small Southern town to film a big budget movie. Center stage is Hollywood heartthrob and too-handsome-for-his-own-good, Hollywood royalty Cole Masten aka Big City. T

We are strong. We are Southern. We have secrets you will never imagine.

Hollywood Dirt is not the type of read I’ve come to expect from Alessandra. After reading most of her books, I can say that this is far different from all the rest but equally as good. I was in the mood for something lighter, sweeter, with a strong heroine and wonderful hero and that is exactly what she delivered. Hollywood Dirt is a feel good romance about two people who started off hating each other and

This book was such pleasant surprise! Alessandra Torre skillfully tells the story of a small town girl falling for Hollywood’s top hottie. The story is interestingly based on the very real Coca-Cola millionaires which I found myself reading more about once I finished this book. Hollywood’s heartthrob Cole Masten is bringing this Coca-Cola story to the big screen. The filming of this movie will take place in the small, southern town of Quincy, Georgia. Summer Jenk

I could hate this man, curse him to hell, but there had never been a question on this earth that the man was beautiful, this his body was sin, that his sexuality was addicting.

Cole is a Hollywood sweetheart, that his now (even more) in the eyes of the public due to his very mediatic divorce. Summer is just a country girl, with some secrets in her past.
He didn’t want to fall… and neither did she.
But when they find each other forced to spend a lot of time together and neither of them resisting the attraction between them, they just might realize that sometimes what we need is very far away from what we think we want.

Being from the South, I immediately fell in love with this story set in the small Southern town of Quincy. Alessandra completely nailed the setting, attitude and actions of Southerns. Furthermore, my town actually had a movie set there and when Hollywood came to my tiny town of Oliver Springs the rumor mill was exactly the same. I couldn’t have loved this premise and setting any more if I tried.

Summer Jenkins is an outcast in her town and for the longest time we don’t know why. She is charming,

Hollywood Dirt was a light, sweet read - not at all what I have grown to expect from this author. An entertaining romance about two unlikely people falling in love - from dislike, to like, to love. Growing up in the small, southern town of Quincy, Summer Jenkins, has always been a bit of an outsider. Unlike most of the residents of Quincy, she and her mother don't come from Coca-Cola money, and Summer is itching to get out of town and start over.

I started this book on the 4th September, it is now the 11th and I have 3 hours left. I can't bring myself to finish it because quite frankly i. Am. Bored.

I am so sorry, AT still remains one of my favourite and well respected authors but this story is too slow paced in the romance department for my liking. The sex scene that I read 5% ago was extremely hot and I love the addition of Brad DeLuca, but it's not enough to keep me going I'm sad to say.

One thing is true, I don't usually read Hollywood books. I have family members and friends in that industry and the things I've seen and learned are enough to last me a lifetime. So when I read this book I was expecting to dislike it, mainly because most people that write "Hollywood" tend to write it wrong, at least the books I've read. But this one was amazing!
