She would be celebrating this momentous event, if she wasn’t busy fighting over every tiny production detail with the maddeningly cavalier director, Kole Camden.

This would have been just a 2* read of what amounts to a pretty overused plot to be imagined as a movie with Meg Ryan, Hugh Jackman and Brad Pitt, if not for two things:

A) this was genuinely funny in a lot of places, and
B) the fact that the uber-sexy male superstar was written to be a genuinely, deeply nice guy.

I was chuckling a lot, and I seriously liked Greyson, who was always - so uncharacteristically for a Hollywood superstar - in good humour and trying to do the best for everyone, while hav

Adorable, funny, but the romance was lacking.

I had so much fun reading Adapted For Film. It was cute, the characters made me laugh, and the story was told beautifully. We start with Aubrey talking to a reporter about how she came to be engaged! But we don't know who she is engaged to. It could be Greyson, the sexy star of her book-adapted film or Kole, the grumpy but hilarious director. Really, I didn't know who to root for because b

While it took me some time to connect with the story and the main character, I am glad I completed this read. In the end I was rewarded with a fun and witty story. Fans of Stacey Rourke need not fear her journey in to New Adult Contemporary Romance genre because this book is classic Rourke. The witty, snarky commentary that Rourke is known for is definitely present. Whether she is writing a fight scene in the Gryphon Series, a murder by the horseman, or expressing one’s true love in a butterfly ...more

If you need something short, light and funny, then this book is for you. Stacey Rourke writes great sarcastic humor and I enjoyed it a lot.

I finished this book in damn near one sitting. It was drenched in sarcasm. And I loved it. I’ve had this book in my queue for a while now. I don’t recall how I got it but I needed a break from my series reads and the Sci-Fi book I had been reading. (H.G. Wells is hard to read for too long) I immediately loved it. From beginning to end this book screams wit, snark and lots of humor!

I laughed so much during this book you guys. I could not put the damn thing

This is by far the most boring, plain, bleah book that I've read. And I really don't understand how it has such huge ratings, because it has nothing good: characters are like invisible because they are not sketched or described so you can see them, or even remember their names and know who is who. The plot is spineless and its coherence is inexistent. Everything that happens bored me to death and the more I was reading the worst was becoming.

I really enjoy this type of books and I'm not harsh o

Having been a fan of Mrs. Rourke YA novels for awhile now, I was very nervous to hear of her newest book. Romantic comedy, no this would not work! Well I bow down to your brilliance with this work, I was 100% wrong. This book is filled with everything I love about your other series, quick whit and character that you can totally relate to.

I really enjoyed books with this type of story line but unfortunately, this one didn't do it for me. It was bland and quite boring.

Aubrey Evans was supposedly an independent woman but I had a difficult time portraying her as such. For me she was annoying. The only thing I liked about her was the clever dialogue going on, where even Camden had a difficult time understanding.

And Lastly, what was Greyson's role supposed to be? I had to reach the end to understand that Audrey's love interes

I love me some humorous romance. And this book fits the bill!

Aubrey is a romance author who--gasp!--doesn't believe in happy endings. She was head over heels for her first love and husband, but he did her wrong, and left her brokenhearted. It didn't stop her rise in the world of romance fiction, and now Aubrey's first novel is being made into a movie, and she's a producer!

Aubrey and her BFF Tandy head out to LA to be a part of the action. There Aubrey learns that the part of her 6'6"

Ever since I read this author's first book I have loved her writing. With Adapted For Film I was worried how the story would turn out as this is not the author's normal writing genre. I can say that I LOVED it. I see the author's sense of humor coming out more in this book as she has a great one. Through out the whole book I was in a fit of either laughter or giggles.
I really enjoyed how we are told the story through Aubrey's point of view but it was told to an RB (reporter barbie).

Adapted for Film is a contemporary romance that works as a standalone. That being said, I would like to pop into this world again and see what Aubrey and the characters are up to. I really dug Stacey Rourke's writing style and the way she told the story. The book starts out with a famous romance author being interviewed. You initially think the interview is for her book that has been turned into a major blockbuster m

**I received an ebook ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review**

This was such a fun read! I’m a pop culture junkie, so I love reading books that take place in Hollywood or are focused on a topic related to it.

Aubrey Evans wrote a book that everyone loved, and now it’s being adapted on the big screen. Hollywood’s hottest male star—Greyson Meyers—won the lead role in the film, and a brazen, sexy director—Kole Camden—is at the helm of the project. Kole and Aubrey just can’t seem to get

Aubrey Evans is on set for the making of the movie based on her romance novel, but she finds herself clashing with the director, Kole Camden. Though they manage to put their differences aside, the studio thinks that the best way to avoid the bad press that has already leaked is to manufacture a relationship between Audrey and the actor playing the lead role, Greyson Meyers. While it seems innocent at first, Aubrey is unable to stop the studio from taking it to further levels, and things get only ...more

This is more of a 2.5 star read for me, but it wasn't really worth 3 stars. The book is told in a series of flashbacks, which I found more annoying than interesting. Aubrey was a very annoying heroine, blowing hot and cold between being a strong independent author and a spineless wimp. Both of her love interests were judgemental and caught up in their own worlds and needs to be supportive of Aubrey. I live a relationship like that, I really didn't need to read about one too. Granted, everything ...more

Adapted For Film was a super sweet contemporary romance and an enjoyable one at that. This is my first Stacey Rourke book and also my first book that's based on a film's set. So it was super fun.

The book starts with Aubrey talking to a reporter about her her love story and her engagement. We don't know who Aubrey is engaged to and we are in suspense as to who the guy is almost till the end.

Aubrey Evans is a bestselling romance author whose book is being made into a movie. This is the best thing

A contemporary romance with a heavy dose of comedy! Or is it a comedy with a heavy dose of contemporary romance? I laughed my butt off reading this book! I normally read post apoc or paranormal type books, I do love an occasional romance, but it’s a hard transition sometimes, and this was just what I needed. Aubrey Evans is a published author who’s book is hitting the big screen. We follow Aubrey and her BFF Tandy as they fly to LA for the filming. The friends have an enviable relationship, thei ...more

“In an instant I became a monkey at the zoo, with an audience observing this painfully uncomfortable experience. Why primates fling their poo suddenly became clear to me.”

“Tandy – the well-spoken woman whose mere presence had been known to intimidate men and women alike – blushed and squealed like a preteen at a One Direction concert.”

I really enjoyed this story, and loved the way that it was told. It was clever, funny and I felt a great tease to us, the readers. Did I guess the twist early on? well, probably yes, but it just made it all the more amusing watching it play out. The side characters, such as Sebastian, are recognisable homage to the industry and just add to the humour. It is a short, sweet read which hints at a lot, but really it is pretty much all verba

The MC is an author living her dream... her book is being made into a movie. The story opens with the MC being interviewed about her wedding. She met the groom on the set of the movie and the romance has set Hollywood ablaze. The MC tells the story through an interview. I really liked that POV. This book will keep you guessing as to who the groom really is. I had an inkling but wasn't 100% sure.

I would have really liked to have seen more of the two love birds once they pulled their heads out of

Just What I Needed!

When I heard Stacey Rourke was releasing a romantic comedy, I was super excited. While not my normal type of read, I knew she could bring the humor, and I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book. I wasn't disappointed in the slightest. Adapted for Film is full of romance, snark, and hilarity. I loved every second! Just what I needed to pull me out of my reading funk!

This was cute but uneven. I always love a good enemies-t0-lovers, and this was chock full of clever dialogue. It lost steam at several points, though, and I had to make myself pick it back up more than once.

Great read!

I loved everything about this story! It was witty and laugh out loud funny but full of emotion. I didn't want the story to end.
Sienna Logan (Lost to Books)
This is the first book I've read by this author so I wasn't sure what I was getting. In the end Adapted for Film was a quick and easy read with some humorous moments, but it did leave me wanting more.

In general, this book was likeable. It started off well with the comical clashes between the author, Aubrey, and the director, Kole. I liked the mix of interviews in the present day and the events actually unfolding as they happened. However, for me, the romance left a lot to be desired for. I liked

I enjoyed reading this book. It had extremely funny laugh or l loud moments. I loved Aubrey and Kole's banter. I LOVED the way they met. Here's what I didn't like. Tandy, the BFF. I thought she was mean to Aubrey. "Did I tell you that your pants make your ankles look fat? " who says that to people they love. I also thought she was selfish. Not once in the book did she show Aubrey a hint of compassion. It was always about Tandy drooling over Grayson. Another thing I didn't line was the author did ...more

A book on the silver screen

I got this book free from Amazon. I have read Stacey Rourkes other books in the past. Although this was not a paranormal, I decided to give it a try.
The concept was different. The characters were well developed and some had issues, making them complex.
The story is about an author who brings her book to the silver screen. She goes to L.A. to watch the filming & discovers that everyone has it all wrong. Since she is a control freak, there are many arguments with the

Very funny creative dirty book

I did not finish reading this book. Although, I really liked what I read. The author was very creative writing a book about somebody who wrote a book that was turned into a movie. The reason I didn’t is reading the book is that it was too mature for me. Reason I gave the rating of four stars is the overly sexual content.

Kohl vs Greyson

Loved all the characters except Art! But on the other hand Art was written so well he was made to be unlikable. This book was written to mimic real life. The only thing that was hard to believe was that she had such a scrappy apartment and yet she had written so many best selling books. I would happily read more from this author

“Don’t worry,” Tandy groaned, righting herself on the seat. “After he and I fall in love, you can be the maid of honor at our lavish wedding at some stunning castle in the Greek isle.” “Oh, yeah?” I nodded in encouragement. “As a counterpoint, I have to ask; if you earn your first restraining order on this trip, do you think you’ll frame it?” “Most definitely.” A gleaming white smile brightened her face. “I’m going to hang it in my foyer so even the pizza delivery guy can see it.
