Probably more 3 stars, since I'm interested in reading more in the series (but not quite 4 stars).


Luc is actually a nice guy. Honorable. Gwen was normal; not the high maintenance actress you'd expect. Weird that the story ended unresolved, but was resolved with epilogue.

Grandparents love story was sweet. Would love to read Devlin's and Max's stories.

This was an ok read, the story was entertaining. I didn't believe the romance, it was far too quick. Also in the book, they didn't come out and say she was broke, but alluded to the fact that Gwen didn't have a lot of money. If she had been an Academy Award winning actress, you'd think perhaps she had a little nest egg. Luc was very demanding. I did enjoy the parts of the story that were more down to earth, and less Hollywood.

Still it was well written, I didn't believe in the romance.

Gara-gara udah baca duluan buku keduanya, Tempted Into The Tycoon's Trap dan liat silsilah keluarga Hudson, jadi penasaran baca anggota keluarga Hudson yang lain.
Yes, I knew almost every harlequin story was a bit cliche, but still, I think this one was entertaining enough. Terutama karena saya suka sama tema PDA (public display arrangement) dimana mereka harus pura-pura jadi pasangan. :D
Sayang, endingnya agak terlalu cepat. Bayangkan, begitu Gwen balik ke ranch dan Luc ngerasa kehilangan karena

This book was just okay. The characters were well-developed, however the storyline just wasn't something I am interested in. Leanne Banks is one of my absolute favorite author's and I think she's had some better stories. It's based on a woman, Gwen McCord, a former Hollywood actress and Luc Hudson, a film industry PR man. Gwen's sister is in trouble and in order to save her, Luc developed a plan in which Gwen and himself are pretending to be engaged.

It was good. I would have liked more strings tied up at the end, but maybe that's to get you to read the next book about the Hudson family.

Took me awhile to get into. But overall, it was a good read. I'm looking forward to read the rest of the series.
