Adult version of the A-List, but not a series. [return][return]When her assets are frozen by a vengeful stepmother after the death of her unfaithful actor father, Hannah Fairchild takes a job working as a personal assistant to competitive British superstar Louis Trollope, who tries to seduce Hannah when she falls in love with a screenwriter.

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.

Surprisingly good despite the fact there were times I wanted to reach into the book and shake some sense into the heroine.

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

Too much of the actor, not enough of the writer.
