Adam Jacobsen was a struggling actor about to give up his Hollywood dreams and head back to his dead-end small town existence, when a chance encounter with a stranger gave him the motivation he needed to go into one more audition and give it his all. That fateful encounter resulted in Adam’s big break and changed his life forever.

Five years later, Brian Stewart is watching a film awards ceremony on television with his friends when Hollywood heart-throb Adam Jacobsen wins the coveted prize

This book actually surprised me, and it was a good one. The premise was definitely different from any other "celebrity" falls for a non celebrity person. It was really engaging. Unfortunately, there was a major annoyance that had me not rating it higher. Imagine my surprise and joy when the main characters actually talked about their possible relationship!!? They discussed the problems they'll face and what they were feeling at the time. It was so refreshing to read until... they kept talking ...more

Honestly, I don’t like actor/model stories but this was just too precious!! I loved their meet-cute and their second chance meeting!

This was not for me.

Yes, it is cute.
Yes, it is low angst.
But that does not a good story make. There is very little plot, there is very little meat on the bones.

Before I get into that: the way they meet is cute, and there is no denying that the premise holds appeal. It delivers when five years later superstar Adam thanks his future number one fan for being the motivation behind his career turningpoint while accepting the best actor award. The future number one fan in question, Brian, watches

This book has a catnip that I'm sure appeal to the masses: Adam -- the actor -- is a 28 year old virgin. While Brian, the love interest, as well as the future number 1 fan works as a nurse who also owns a wonderful dog named, Lola.

I liked it just fine -- the sex scenes are NUMEROUS in this book, as typical with Witt's books. I skimmed most of them, which made this a faster read for me despite clocking at more than 300 pages.

Outside the sex scenes both Adam and Brian were sweet. My

3,5 stars

Love in the limelight is never easy and it’s never private.

I loved the beginning of this book, I was hooked from the start. We meet Adam, a struggling actor working at a diner. He’s on the brink of giving up, quit his job and go back to his hometown. He actually had the resignation notice all written up and in his back pocket, but first he needs to get through the day, and he just messed up another order – this one for a cute guy he’d love to take out. Only he thinks

I really enjoyed Adam's and Brian's love story. The conflict of someone who hates the spotlight and one who has to live in it was engaging.

They are just super sweet together. I liked how they talked to each other and really tried to make it work.

Brian could have been more honest before he freaked out but that part of the book didn't last long and we get great parents and dog and great connection.

Made it up to about 50% but I just got bored. When I started reading I liked it a lot, but then it just fizzled out.

I sighed at the somewhat “meet cute” at the beginning. I was captivated by the acceptance speech (heart felt sighs and a few smiling tears). I enjoyed Adam and Brian spending time together through the middle (though I skimmed a LOT of the sex). I loved Brian’s parents. I loved how they opened their arms to Adam, even during times of relationship heartache. The book lost me at the contrived angst that I could see coming ten miles away. I just felt it could/should have been handled long before it ...more

Lets just be real. Michael could possibly read me the want ads, and I would swoon. He’s simply a wonderful narrator with a voice that I love.

I am bumping up my rating because of Michael.

this one was such a sweet book and story ... I loved Adam and how shy and unsure he was sometimes despite his being a big star

Brian was also a very sweet character and I could understand his actions.
nevertheless, I would have wished that he found the courage the first time ... .but in the end it is only important that he found it

this is a real nice and sweet read, which is perfect for rainy days and if you are looking for something sweet

Top writer and narrator. This is a sweet easy listen romance, it's not my favourite genre so I can't really judge it fairly. I've loved so many books by this author and while this isn't one I'd rate as highly as the others, many people have.

This was a very nice and interesting story. I like the trope of big celebrity falling in love with ordinary guy. A little bit like "Notting Hill" and the idea, that it's actually Brian, the ordinary guy, who encouraged Adam not to give up his dream of an acting career, while working as a waiter, definitely made it super sweet.
For my taste, the book could have been a little shorter, all that media frenzy and paparazzi drama got a little much and was over the top.
The whole book was probably as

Way too much sex. It's like all there is between them is sex. Well, it's not written that way, but it's all we see.. Anytime they are together, it end up in sex. It's annoying. So I skimmed them. Make for a quick read.
Other than that, it's a cute story. I liked the setup. I'm not a fan of the virgin trope, but it was well handle here.
But Brian non stop, reassure Adam, he's there, he's not leaving, promise he will talk.. Blablaa. And then he does the opposite..

PLEASE READ FIRST MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings (thanks to amazon I had to change it again and 'upgrade' it a little bit.):

5* - very very good and rare (it would be a Blow-
Away-book like 'Liberty' from Seth King,
'Save the at he kids' series from EM Leya or
'Jesse's Smile' from Angelique Jurd), it's like
an A+

4* - very good and will be often reread and is a
WOW-book with interesting plot and surprises
(like most of Andrew Grey books) it's like an A

Treasuring the bumbling diner waiter’s autograph

A quick and sweet, low-angst romance -with an occasional romping "puppy" (German Shepherd)

I enjoy this author's writing and overall the prose and the somewhat unique/novel character meeting and juxtaposition were enjoyable. A slightly older, attractive nice guy being particularly forgiving, nice and supportive to a bumbling waiter having a bad day turned into a virginal Hollywood hunk thanking his unknown fan, a shy but more experienced nurse, on

I can't say I didn't like this, but I wasn't too enamored with Brian.
*He was naive when it came to his publicity issues (really? He never thought that every Tom, Dick and Harry would be commenting on his looks, potential motives etc?). He didn't realize that, being a fanboy himself, he is part of the problem he was so bothered about later.
*An adult having random people working mundane jobs sign his autograph book at the off chance they might get famous one day? What sort of a hobby (if you can

Meh.

A little dialogue. Sex. Fears about going public. Sex. Same fears about going public. Sex. Surprise, conflict! Conflict over, sex.
I will say that I found Brian's perspective interesting, and he was relatable to me in the sense that I can see how terrifying and downright awful it would be to receive that kind of attention and hate (I already hate comment sections everywhere IRL, so the plausibility of his experiences is harrowing). However, that did not last very long, wasn't explored a lot,

Such a sweet & amazing beginning! Wow... I loved both of the characters right from the start... I also loved how they were both on the same page so long ago without realizing it... Kind of makes you think about how destiny & fate works...

The way they went public was an error for sure, with Adam being way too busy to help reassure him... There's a poignant line, from Adam's point of view, "Brian was the reason my career had gotten off the ground, and my career was the reason we didn't

Brian is a sniveling weenie who can't get over being bullied as a child long enough to ask a hunky waiter out... so he gets his autograph instead claiming most LA waiters are actors just waiting for a big break out. Buoyed by being asked for his autograph, Adam shrugged off the feelings of failure and defeat and goes to that one last addition and gets the big part. Five years later he's an award-winning actor and he thanks Brian for the confidence boost. They get reacquainted and fight through ...more

Sometimes little things we do can go a long way. Acts of kindness may seem small at the time, but the impact they can have on other people often can go unseen. But Brian's act of kindness went further than he ever expected it could. And it suddenly has the potential to lead to something completely unexpected: love. If he can get over everything else that comes along with it. A charming story about supporting other people, returning favors, and paying it forward.
