I’m a 21ST CENTURY COURTESAN.
Beautiful, broken billionaires pay Ma Maison Agency ungodly sums of money to be with me because I’m empathic: I feel their emotions in my body. I track down the bitter belief that broke them and then I help them heal.
I’m down to my last four clients. One wants to play me. One wants to buy me. One wants to marry me. And one wants to murder me.

Second book in this series, I highly recommend reading the first book before this one to help enhance your enjoyment and keep up with the characters in this series. I loved this book as much as the first. Evie’s story continues as she takes on movie star, Jake as a client. Will he prove to be a challenge and is her stalker getting closer? The characters are well developed and creative, they truly make the story especially Evie. No regrets picking up this book, a must read!

Movie Star is the highly anticipated second instalment in the 21st Century Courtesan Series by Pamela DuMond. I can’t get enough of this series, and characters! Ms. DuMond won me over with the first book, and earned herself a spot on my ‘must-read’ list. As this book picks up right where the first book left off, and has quite a few recurring characters, I really recommend reading book #1 before starting on this one- as the first book gives all the important backstory and character introdu

I just finished reading Movie Star (21st Century Courtesan, #2), by Pamela DuMond.

This book is somehow, even better than the first!

I don’t know if it’s because we know Evie and the girls a lot better now or if it’s because I *might* like Jake better than Dylan (sorry Dylan, I still love you though), or a combination of both.

I completely fell for Jake, who is very down to earth, despite being a huge movie star.

He cares for his employees, his friends and of course, Evie.

Evie, who will stop at noth

Movie Star is the 2nd book in the 21st Century Courtesan series by Pamela DuMond. I would definitely recommend reading the first book Player before reading this one. It can be read as a stand-alone but the story will make more sense if you have read the first book.
Movie Star continues on from where Player left off and like Player it just stops at the end leaving you screaming WTF!! Why does Pamela DuMond do this to us? In this book Evie is hired to work with top actor Jake Keller who is losing

Movie Star is the second book in the 21st Century Courtesan series and oh my gosh what an absolutely amazing read! I would recommend that book 1 is read before this one just so you fully understand what is going on.

Honestly, this book is amazing! This is part two in the 21st Century Courtesan Series and it is hands down better than the first book. Once I started reading, I couldn’t put it down. This series is original, sexy and addictive. I’m anxiously waiting for the next installment.

The story continues as Evie takes on her next client. Jake is a big time movie star with a secret as big as he is. He’s lost his way and is shutting down. It’s up to Evie to get him back on

This is the second book in this series that I have read and I wasn't disappointed. I found the authors style to be quite refreshing and really brings the story to life. The whole concept of the books is really quite unique. I really enjoyed how the author brings a little intrigue into the books with a slight sinister twist. I couldn't put the book down.

This book helps to get a bit more into Evie's past and how she starts to fit

This is the second book in the "21st Century Courtesan" series and I think it's important to read book one first. There are a few common threads that are vital to understand in order to move the story forward.

I FLOVED this book. I don't know how many stories there will be in this series, but book two was amazing. I read it in one sitting from beginning to end. It moves quietly along packing punch after punch, from beginning to end I was entranced by the story.

Evie is my 21st Century Warrior Goddess heroine. I'm a little in love with her heartbreaking, empowering story. I hope you will be too.

MOVIE STAR: 21st Century Courtesan #2 isn't for the faint of heart. It's steamy and tackles difficult subject matter.

Gorgeous movie star Jake Keller’s on track to win an Oscar. But Jake’s shutting down, going off grid, doing nothing to help promote his chances.

Evie travels to Hollywood to try and help discover what -- or who -- broke Jake. But dirty little secret

I can’t say enough about this series! It’s so captivating and so brilliant! Move Star is Book 2 in the 21st Century Courtesan series by Pamela DuMond. Evelyn “Evie” is an escort that makes six figures, not because she beds every man but because she has a special gift. Evie is Empathetic. She can feel other people’s emotions and she has been able to get to the root of men’s problems. In this book, she is on to a new client. This new client is none other than super famous movie star Jake Keller. J ...more

MOVIE STAR (21st Century Courtesan Book 2) by Pamela Dumond is another exciting book in this great series. You must read the others before reading this one as this one takes off where the last one ended.It is a bit of an emotional read full intrigue and mystery, pain and suffering and hot, sexy men who need to find the one thing that has stopped them from moving forward. It is well written and the great characters are well developed, complex and multi layered. I read this book in one sitting, fr ...more

This series has taken me by surprise. From the synopsis pieces immediately resonated. But still I was unsure if I would connect to the story. My doubts were immediately erased as soon as I read the first page. Dumond has created a world in this series, and maintained in this second installment, whereby the reader immediately dives headfirst into the plot and connects unabashedly to our main character. Masterfully written, this book stands on its own well but is best appreciated to the full when ...more

Movie Star (21st Century Courtesan Book 2) by Pamela Dumond. This is the second book in the Courtesan Series and I love these books. It picks up where the first book left off and is about Evie and her life as a 21st Century Courtesan. Her latest assignment is Jake Keller, a movie star who is in a funk. Evie is strong, independent and beautiful. Her life has not been easy and she is taking care of her mentally ill mother and her strung out sister. Jake has been a huge movie star but has had an em ...more

Movie Star (21st Century Courtesan, #2) by Pamela DuMond was an engaging, emotional read, that hooks you and pulls you into the story.

Not my first read from this author or in this series. This is a continuation series so I highly suggest reading the first book. It will give you much needed background info and character backstories.

I very much enjoyed the first book, and this one was equally as enjoyable. They are fast reads so if you haven't read that first book, you'll get through it in no ti

Pamela DuMond's Movie Star is the second book in the 21st Century Courtesan series. This new adult/college romance that has been set as a stage for an epic series. Evie is unforgettable. She is such a strong and capable character as more and more of her character is unearthed through the series. Jake's character was well written, you could feel the broken edges to him. Along with the sequences with Jake and Evie, there is a hint of mystery woven into the story that adds an additional flare to it ...more

Movie Star is the second book in 21st Century Courtesan series by Pamela DuMond. It is an amazing read and you absolutely need to read the first book as otherwise you will feel a bit lost (like I did as I started with the second book!).
It is a spellbound story where Evie (our main character who we follow through all the books in the series) takes on her second client – a huge movie star Jake Keller who has some heavy hitting secrets. He is lost and shutting down and Evie needs to dig in and crea

I feel bad for Evie. She feels so much and yet she helps others be better. With so many different emotions coming at her it’s a wonder she functions so well. I don’t like how they use her. I understand why she does it but not the benefit to her. I actually enjoyed this second book more than the first. Jake needs help and Evie is sent in to give him what he needs. This is definitely a new take on Courtesans and what they stood

There is lots going on in this one again like the first, but Pamela DuMond has a great way for keeping it clear and making it easy for you to keep up. The darkness in the story is well done and will keep you gripped, the suspense level is thrilling. Jake was a character who surprised me hi ...more

Movie Star was a great 5 star read and book two in the 21st Century Courtesan series.

Evie is empathic, men hire her to help them heal. She is heading to LA to help Jake Keller a very hot troubled movie star. The night before she leaves she discovers her house has been broken into. And she has gotten another letter. Has her stalker returned?

Healing broken men is filthy, grueling work, which is why it’s ironic that on the outside I look immaculate.

Movie Star by Pamela DuMond is a great addition to her series 21st Century Courtesan. To be honest I was thinking that this series was going to be a new romance series, which is not my most favorite genre, I was really wrong.
