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.

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

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.

review featured on: indiewishlist.wixsite.com/blog

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

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 girl

Romance Between The Sheets

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

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

Totally recommended, a very captivating story overall.

A complete drag…

This book was a complete drag. I found myself having to skip pages and chapters just to gain insight and new information. Lastly, the paranormal aspect wasn’t introduced until the last few chapters of the book. This is not a series I would recommend.
