Maddy's Reading
Celebrity romance with a touch of paranormal...
Lauren has come back home to wrk for some months and help out her family. She is assisting her aunt who is catering for a film crew. Jackson is the lead for the movie

It was a little difficult to get the hang of the story but soon it become interesting and I couldn't put it down. The whole tone of the book has a very different vibe which hooks the reader.

This installment ends in a cliffy but I am looking forward to read the next one.

This book was so good. The writing was consistent, the characters were likable, and the story was easy for me to get into. The love triangle between Jackson, Lauren, and Cary was a unique one considering the circumstances. I'm eager to read more about these characters, and explore the supernatural world with them. I enjoyed reading this book, and am excited for the next story in this series.

Received this book from Goodreads as a giveaway win. Wasn't aware of this author previously, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I did know I was definitely interested in the story line.

Upon starting this and getting further into the story I started making comparisons somewhat to the Twilight Series. I think that was more because of the fantasy aspect of what the story started to become.

I enjoyed the characters, the storyline of each. The story was easy to follow. Was slightly edgy, sweet and mad
Romance Between The Sheets
The Devil Has a British Accent is a coming of age romance with a paranormal twist. A girl who has to protect her heart and the men who want her.

Lauren has just returned from Minnesota after graduating.  She doesn't have any real plans for the future but has decided to help a family friend with her catering business while a film crew is in town.  I liked Lauren, she has gone through a lot with her family and is figuring out what comes next and that makes her relatable.  She is also trying to figu

"Hollywood star" meets "everyday girl" romance.... I think not

The scene is set in New Orleans, with the focus on the main character. Lauren a smart, headstrong girl who on the day of returning to her hometown meets none other than Hollywood heart throb "Jackson Cruze".

There relationship is turbulent at best, due to not only the demands from Jacksons career but everything Ells that comes with being a "Hollywood Star". Fans, a mock relationship with costar Zara to build ratings and fans interests

Who doesn’t enjoy a story filled with possible romance, twists and turns and divine inspiration. We begin with meeting Lauren, a teenage girl who had been living away from home to go to school, who is introduced to Jackson, a famous actor. She is returning home to work for her Mother’s best friend after graduating High School and is reunited with her brother’s best friend, her unrequited love, Cary.

When I first started reading this book I thought I’d be reading a romance story but that’s too si

"This is no simple Hollywood story of famous boy meets ordinary girl, who then fall in love and live happily ever after." Normally I don't quote the blurb, but there's never been a truer first sentence to me, as it perfectly sums up this story! Basically, Lauren comes home and meets Jackson Cruze, a hot commodity movie star, but while they have sparks, there is also Cary on the flip side. So you think it would be another love triangle right?! Let me defuse that pattern of thinking, as that's so ...more

Five Amazing Stars! Lauren returns to her hometown for a catering gig working for none other then Hollywood heartthrob Jackson Cruze. Their relationship is complicated not only due to the demands of being a Hollywood heartthrob but also because he has a mock relationship with his co-star. Lauren also is complicating things because she is good friends with Cary who has feelings for her. I recommend you go and grab a copy today and read it to discover what this story is all about!

First time reader and PNR is not my genre, however I quite enjoyed this story. It does end oddly, I was expecting another book and from what I see there isn’t one. The storyline was engaging and the characters were well thought out.

Lauren returns to New Orleans when she finishes high school. Not sure what direction to take next she decides to use the time to make some choices before locking herself into college. Her brother Blake is the front man for a band and his best friend Carey who is like

Strong storyline, incredible world building
A FIve star read!
The first few chapters contain a lot of character building as well as setting up the tone for the story
I will warn pay attention to the little things in the first couple chapters - because later in the story you will wish you had! That is the only spoiler I am giving - because once we "think we knew who is who and what is going on-

~~I received this in exchange for my honest opinion~~

This book was a little hard to get into. Once I did though, I was able to read it quickly! There are two insanely hot alpha males vying for Lauren's heart/safety. But, when Lauren finds out who they are, she needs to take a step back.

Z.N. Willett has written a book that will take ahold of you, not right off the bat, but after there is enough built up. It will take you by the shoulders and take you on a ride that you won't want to get off!!

Forget stories that are clean cut, making it easy to know good guys from bad guys and right from wrong. This tale will have you on the edge of your seat, trying to figure out intrigues, hidden agendas, and what is the greater picture. Could the charming bad not be all bad? Are the lovable good really that good? And what the hell does the intriguing title of the story want to tell me? Could it be I have it all wrong? I couldn't stop reading until I was through, the sort-of-sudden ending leaving m ...more

I always enjoy the books ZN Willett writes, this book was very enjoyable. Lots of romance, twists, and Jackson! Lauren is working for her aunt’s catering in a film, she meets Jackson a hot sexy famous actor. I couldn’t put it down, had t oread it all, the mystery behind Lauren and how Jackson reacts to everything had me on the edge, I so need the next one! Totally recommended, a very captivating story overall.

4 Stars

This book through me off. It's a story of a young girl going back home to New Orleans after finishing high school in a different start with her uncle as her guardian. She goes home to her brother and her grandmother. She takes a job as a catering assistant with her aunt on a movie set filming at a local plantation house. She catches the eye of the male lead who wants her, but she's shy and can't understand why he would be interested in her

review featured on:

Most of this book is written as a contemporary romance. It’s not until way down the road that the paranormal aspects come out. That doesn’t take away from the book. I liked trying to figure out what was going to happen. And I really can’t wait to see what happens in the book(s) to come.

Lauren has gone through a lot in her 18 years. I’m not going to retell the story, but I have to say that when a film crew comes to her town and she helps cater it,

I received a copy of this book from Eye Candy Bookstore . I voluntarily read and reviewed this book.

Any mention of New Orleans and you have my attention! There is always something strange happening there whether it be on your face or subtle....anyhow my interest has been piqued..

So Lauren heads home to New Orleans from Minnesota and not having a real plan for what happens next in her life she helps her aunt with her catering business and right now her clients are the filming crew in town.....

The Devil has a British Accent was a great 5 star read.

Lauren has returned home to help with a catering job at a plantation, where there is also a hollywood movie filming. It’s New Years Eve and she is at a club watching her brothers band, where she meets hot hollywood hunk, Jackson.

Jackson remembers that Lauren is working with catering and he comes and finds her on set. There is something about Lauren that pulls Jackson in, she’s not like the usual girls
