Wow. The illegal image of Adam Cowie used for this cover (along with a second book in this series) and Matt Bomer's image.... just is icky.

I can't support an author that does shit like this. And to think that the she is promoting how to make money...

This is a pretty generic contemporary romance about a 'regular' girl working as a wardrobe mistress on a small independent film and a famous actor who fall in love. Finn and Chloe meet cute, are attracted to each other, have a contrived date, a real date, a breakup, and then another contrived event that puts them back together.

Finn and Chloe are a cute couple, likable in their own ways. I realize I'm one of the few reviewers who didn't get excited about this short book and don't get me wrong, i

Dressing Mr. Dalton is the story of Finn and Chloe.

Finn is an A list actor on top of his game. He’s a candidate for People’s Sexiest Man of the Year. He dates actresses and models and makes seven figures per film. Chloe is a waitress by night and a wardrobe stylist by day. She’s just gotten a gig for an independent, small budget movie. Fin has read the script for such film and decides he must play the lead role. Oh, and he’s doing it for free.

This book is an absolute gem! This was an amazing and beautiful love story that was so well done; it held my attention and was entertaining, but also was heartwarming and emotional. This book is an engaging story with lots of passion that will keep you captivated and glued to the pages of this fascinating storyline with well developed characters.

This is the story of Chloe and Finn. Chloe is a just-starting-out in the movie industry wardrobe stylist and Finn is a huge, mega-star actor. They meet when Finn takes a role on a small, independent film that Chloe is the wardrobe stylist on. The meet on the set on the first day of filming and things do not go well. Despite this - they are both intrigued with each other and their attraction and interest in each other increases the more time they spend together. From the book description, I was n ...more

I wanted to give this story more stars... but you can't like the thought of something. You either like it or you don't and this story fell short of a like. Meh... This could have been so much better. It was so shallow and much too cliche for my liking. I literally rolled my eyes at a lot of it. But anyway Hollywood heartthrob meets regular girl romance if you're interested.

Chloe Nichols moves to LA after her sister invites her to visit... she likes it, she wants to get into some kind of fash

Delightful, insightful and deceptively mesmerizing, this novella is a total MUST-BUY!
“DRESSING MR. DALTON” is an absolute delight to read, and a GREAT ESCAPE FROM ALL OF THE HOLIDAY RUSH! It’s a quick read, a lighter novella; however, it also will take readers on an emotional ride that while at times full of laughter and joy, can also be gut-twisting. Yet, I loved every minute of “DRESSING MR. DALTON.” It is much lighter than the dark romances author Byrd has been publishing lately, but “DRESSIN

I really enjoyed this book I couldnt put it down. The story line was believable, The characters are likable (even when he mess everything up when he is not thinking correctly.)( I like that she stands her ground when something happens and she doesn't agree) This story is about a girl taking a chance on living her dream job to be a wardrobe stylist on a movie set. Chloe and her sister Lila ( who is an Actor) had made up a few things up and exaggerated a few other bits on her resume. But then Chlo ...more

This story is a little more sentimental than what the author usually writes. Finn and Chloe are not looking for love when they meet. They start out as colleagues and friends and get to know each other very well before they cross the line to lovers. After being through a horrible and public break-up Finn was looking for a different kind of relationship. Chloe was also looking for something different. This was advice given to Chloe which was what they both ended up doing. “If you find something th ...more

This book by Charlotte Byrd was very different from her Black Edge series. It was light hearted, flirty, and fun! Finn is a big time movie star who makes a low budget Indie movie and falls for Chloe, the Wardrobe Manager. There are some mishaps with their first date, set up by matchmaker Dolly. This ends up with reveals of lies and even with the ever present chemistry, the fledgling relationship appears to be doomed. But there are more shocks to come and keep you on your toes. This was a fast pa ...more

Interesting read from a learning perspective for this reader. The detailed description of duties of a "dresser" for a movie is fascinating. This reader really liked the line the main female character said, "I need to get myself a filter, ASAP.". This statement really resonates with this reader; "hoof in mouth" disease must really be going around.

An all around good read: good story, good characters and good romance! A totally entertaining romantic read.

I really enjoyed this romance. It offers a well written story with a well balanced blend of emotion, fun and steam. This book focuses on the inspired pairing of Chloe and Finn. On paper these two should not work... and yet they do. There is cuteness and sweetness but also a heavy dose of reality. I loved these two together! They have lots standing in the way of a HEA though as Finn's painful history and Chloe's many lies create stumbling blocks for the couple. Drama, a few twists, powerful emoti ...more

A very well written romance with lots of love, steam and drama. Chloe and Finn are both likeable and well described. They develop nicely through the story. I like it is written in dual POV because that gives the reader more of the thoughts and feelings of the main characters and the story comes closer to being real for the reader.
This couple goes from being colleagues and friends to being very attracted to each other and lovers. Finn has a brutal breakup and Chloe wants something different. They

First time reading a Charlotte Byrd book. Totally enjoyed Dressing Mr. Dalton. This was a charming story of a girl who lands her dream job as a Wardrobe Stylist on a movie set and the male lead of the movie who falls in love with her. The book is wonderfully written with plenty of drama, steamy scenes, romance, humor, suspense and fun to keep you turning page after page. I found all the characters to be completely engaging and entertaining, always peaking my interest to know more. Dressing Mr. D ...more

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book. I enjoyed reading about Chloe and Finn. These two are total opposites but you know what they say opposites attract. Finn is coming out of a relationship and Chloe isn't looking for one, but she's caught his eye and he can't get her out of his head. Will fate bring these two together or will he man up and handle things himself? I guess you will have to read to find out what happens with these two. Their story is fun, quirky and romantic.

I rooted for Finn and Chloe from the very beginning. Finn is such a nice attractive guy that any girl would be lucky to have him. Chloe is very relatable and like every smart woman is skeptical when a movie star likes her. She is just your average girl next door just working a job to pay the rent. Thankfully she loves her job and styling clothes comes natural to her. I loved their relationship and glad to see it had a happy ending. I would love to read more about Chloe and Finn and I hope Charlo ...more

Wow I really enjoyed reading this book when it first came out with a different title but reading it again was great. Finn and Chloe met on a filming set, Finn is a well know actor and Chloe is a wardrobe artist, the connection between them was instant and the chemistry off the charts. They started seeing each other and went on dates but then Chloe found out that Finn lied to her and that's one thing that she will not tolerate so she walked away, you will need to read this book to find out what h ...more

Provided with a free ARC for an honest review. Very sweet romance with a little heat and some comic moments. Chloe is a wardrobe designer starting her first job on a small indie movie and Finn is a famous star doing this film to prove he can do serious roles. Their relationship begins with a few silly mishaps and misunderstandings. I really liked the characters--Chloe is such a sweet klutz. The story is quite interesting and has a good hea. I enjoyed it very much and recommend it.

I really liked Chloe and Finn’s story. Finn is a Hollywood actor and just out of a bad breakup, Chloe isn’t looking for a relationship. As they spend time together, sparks fly, will they find a way to be together or will Finn’s fame get in their way. Great characters, an entertaining story with plenty of drama and steamy chemistry. A good read.

I read this book when it was titled The Date & was 80 pages long. It was okay nothing to get excited about. I don’t understand why its title is The Date because there was nothing about a date in this book at all. I’m not going to read the rest of this. I hope this isn’t how all the authors books are because I bought 3 more by her that I haven’t read yet.

This book was entertaining, the plot was fine. The final scenes felt a little too forced in my opinion and the way the author split the chapters felt weird. As if she needed to deliver a determined number of chapters and the scenes were cut to achieve it.
I really like to read some hot male deeply in love with a regular woman, so, this book kept me reading.

A quick drama filled book with some hot steamy action.
This book was well written and I enjoyed it.
Finn is a Hollywood actor who's just come out of a relationship, Chloe is content with her life and isn't look for a relationship.. That is until the sparks between the two start to fly.
