As Hollywood’s hottest actor, getting a woman in my bed is never a challenge.

Then I spotted her at a bar—she wanted a man for the night, and I jumped at the chance to fill the role. I gave her Joel Kline’s best, and she smacked my pretty face.

But don’t worry, that’s not the end of our story. Her brand of crazy inspired me, and I had to see her again, no matter the cost.

descriptionI LOVE this cover! Excellent representation of the hero and story. Great use of graphics. Interesting and eye-catching typography. Great composition. Just a fantastic cover over all.description

descriptionSo I really enjoyed this one (for the most part). As always with this author, it was a well written and nicely paced book. It had some mild angst and drama. Some hot sex scenes. Some witty banter. A likable kid. We also get a little bit of the couple from the first book. Wrapped up with a sweet epilogue.

Movie Star gets the girl!  Jessica Florence yet again made me smile and swoon and stay up until the wee morning hours because I NEEDED to finish this story!

Movie stars (and rock stars) don't always work for me because of the fact that they are often on the nasty side.  I didn't get that vibe from Joel at all.  Was he a ladies man? Yes!   But, when he met Alessandra, he knew he wanted more with her and he set out to prove that he was

This book!! One word... AWESOME! I absolutely loved this and could not put it down. I think everyone including myself was hoping that book 2 for the " Theme Song " series would be about Joel ( Killians best friend in the Long Drive ) and the the girl that slapped him at the bar. Well Jessica Florence did not disappoint us. Both Joel and Alessandra were awesome! So awesome that I really don't know who I loved more. Joel was a sexy movie star and Alessandra was a sassy makeup artist who was a sing ...more

How You Get The Girl is the second book in Jessica Florence's Theme Song series. It can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend you to read Long Drive, the first book in the series and meet Killian Lemarque. Sighs

Somehow, stories where MC is a celebrity always makes me giddy. This book was no exception.
Joel is super famous and he has his eyes on his make up artist Alessandra. She is a single mom who works hard for her family. She cannot be swept away by charms of an actor. How can Joel convince her that this is not a fling but forever.
I absolutely loved Joel and his inner monologues. I loved Alessandra'a strength for all she achieved. This was a angst-free fun read with amazing MC and side characters.

4 fun loving stars!!! What a cute, funny, love at first sight book!!

This is part of the "Theme Song" series but I read as a stand alone and it did not effect the story line. Though I will say I am dying to know about Livia and Killian....

This is Joel and Alessandra's love story. These two are just the perfect pair. One hot tempered Brazilian beauty and a hot as sin cocky movie star. I love them together so much!! These two were meant to be but good luck letting Alessandra in on that.....

How You Get The Girl is the second book in Jessica Florence's Theme Song series. It reads perfectly as a standalone, but the side characters do interconnect since they're the main characters in book one, Long Ride. It's not imperative that you read it, but it's a good jumping off point.

Joel Kline is Hollywood's leading man, Alessandra Rose is his makeup artist. She's not looking for a relationship, but he's completely drawn to her and will go to great lengths to get her to realize it. Their bant

** I was given an ARC in exchange of an honest review. **


I was seduced by this story, about this hollywood actor and the feisty makeup artist.

Joel Kline and Alessandra Rose won me over. A beautiful, sexy and sweet story, definitely not what I expected. So different and enticing.

Joel Kline was not the usual hero, especially as a hollywood actor. When he met this beautiful and sexy woman who blew him off before he had a chance to charm her, he became obsessed. A little much I would say. He m

Joel Kline is Hollywood's hottest leading man, and so has no issues getting the ladies until the night he gives his best stuff to a Brazilian beauty, and she slaps his face. It doesn't deter him though, in fact, it intrigues him even more, as he believes it's not the end to their story. Alessandra Rose is a single mother to a teenage son, and has no time for hot actors trying to hook up. However, when she finds herself the lead makeup artist to Joel Kline's new movie, she knows she's in trouble. ...more

Another cute and funny story by this refreshing romantic author. I didn't think I'd like Joel because he seemed like such a playboy. I mean as a buddy he was awesome and hilarious but as a hero I kinda worried. But in true Jessica fashion she peeled back the layers of this truly good guy and showed what a real man would do to get his girl.

And he did. everything.

Allesandra was a feisty, funny lady who was also a kick butt mom. I love strong women who just rock at taking care of themselves and t

From their first off-the-wall encounter to the last, you will be glad you let Joel and Alessandra into your crazy book world.

When it's the middle of the night and you're the only one awake, reading a book and enjoying the quiet - when you read something that causes you to laugh out loud, waking your family, you know it's gonna be a great story. This is my first read by Jessica Florence, but it won't be my last. How You Get the Girl is hilarious, sweet, sexy, and held my interest from the very first page.

This is the second book in the series but can be read as a standalone, this book was awesome! I seriously couldn't put it down, I laughed, cried and swooned while reading this. Joel, although a Hollywood actor is really sweet, not what I was imagining. Alessandra sees right through him from the start, as a single Mam she has more to think about than herself so tries to put distance between them. Joel does everything in his power to break down her walls, you can't help but fall in love with him! ...more

This is my first time reading a book from Jessica Florence. Now I need to go back and read more from her. I laughed so much in this book. I was drawn into the book from the first page. The author did an awesome job with the storyline. It is well written and I found the pace was perfect too. Joel is a sexy movie star and Alessandra was a sassy makeup artist who was a single mom. I highly recommend this book. Keep up the amazing work! Definitely a MUST HAVE!

This is why I love NA books. I loved Joel and Alessandra Story. It was sweet, romantic, dramatic, charming, and the most important SEXY!!! I was hooked from page one and was swooning by the end,

Alessandra was a strong, cultured and independent women. I loved how fierce she was. I loved how she made a beautiful life out of the hand she was given.

Joel, I totally pegged him as one one way, but the more the story unfolded the more I looked at him in a different light. He had so much more heart. sw

Joel and Alessandra meet at a bar, and Joel is instantly infatuated with Alessandra, but she wants nothing to do with the sexy, famous actor. She’s been burned by an actor before, so she won’t give him the time of day. Then, she gets a job as a makeup artist for a movie starring Joel as the lead actor. Alessandra's walls are up, and he’s determined to bull doze those walls down. Joel will do whatever it takes to make Alessandra realize that he’s not

This was not your typical Hollywood storyline which I found refreshing. The movie star and the single mom, their first meeting wasn't a hit at all. Being your co-worker screams awkward but Joel isn't giving up. Despite a few not so subtle brush offs from Alessandra. He wants to win her over and he is tenacious.

Early on I didn't gravitate to her I usually like single parents and sassy heroines but something was off with how she came off for me. She had this expectant vibe from her action

Can I just start off by saying I love the title to this book. And I love the Taylor Swift song that shares its name and is mentioned in the book.
I liked the first book in this series but I LOVED this book. I absolutely adore Joel and Alessandra. I love how determined Joel is to get Alessandra to be his. No matter how many knock backs, he never gave up. There is just something about him that makes me want to hug him – I don’t know why!

How You Get The Girl was such a cute, funny, clever story! I did not read the first book in this Theme Songs series, so the whole speaking-in-song-titles was new for me and I absolutely loved that! How clever!

How To Get The Girl is the love story of Alessandra and Joel. Joel is a Hollywood IT boy and Alessandra is his make up artist. She's a single mom, making it through with her 13 year old son.

I loved the dynamic between Jenson and Alessandra. They are close, and with him being a newly minted teenager, the awkwardness wasn't hidden in the mother/son relationship. Alessandra was strong, hard working woman. I also enjoyed Joel and Jenson's developing relationship. The look into a single mom dating w

With her teenage son needing her so much she boxes off her feelings until Joel can't be resisted. To be honest I don't know how she manages to hold off so long.

How You Get The Girl is a stand-alone romance novel , but I recommend to read Long Drive, Killian and Livias story first.

Meet Joel Kline, a famous movie star. He meets Alessandra Rose at a bar, but his flirts doesnt work with her, at all.
Alessandra is a make up artist and single mom of a teenage boy.

I always get excited for a new Jessica Florence release and she never disappoints. It was fun to see characters from the Long Drive make a few appearances in this book and get caught up on where they are in life since the book ended. Also, the Long Drive did not need to be read before How You Get the Girl. Both are standalones with cross-over characters.
