Review contrains some spoilers!! (nothing major)

When I first started reading this book I was excited to see how it would turn out, and for a British boy (who doesn't love them?)

We have two love interests here, Mick, the screenwriter who is a genuine guy, and of course Louis, hot British actor whom everyone wants to call their own.

Adult version of the A-List, but not a series.

I absolutely love this book. I have read this book so many times mine is falling apart. It's a summer must read for me. A quick read that holds your interest and never gets old.

One of the darkest, funniest books about Hollywood I've read. Totally a quick, fun read.

Awalnya semangat baca. Agak melambat menuju tengah. Gregetnya menurun. Tapi mau habis menaik lagi. Dikit sih.
