Caught On Camera by Meg Maguire

I don't like contemporary romance.

I don't like blonds.

I don't particularly like Harlequins (unless I'm reading a "Sheikh" book as a joke).

So, it was with quite a bit of trepidation that I accepted an ARC from Meg Maguire. It's a Harly. With a blond guy. And it's a contemporary romance.

And then I looked at the cover.

Now, most of the time, a cheesy cover is something that would make an author cringe. Not a good thing. But in this case, the cover made me smile. First

That cover... is fug, but I feel like the cover designers unlocked an achievement - producing a weird mix between a clothing catalogue behind-the-scenes photo and a peeping Tom's diary entry - so they should be applauded. That kind of level of creepiness requires effort, I imagine. A+.

The insides are fun, though. Since it's Cara McKenna wearing her Meg Maguire writing duds, I knew there'd be way less cheese on the inside. The sex scenes are slightly toned down from the regular McKenna, because i

I bought this book solely on the name of the author having read and loved other books by her (The Reluctant Nude, Willing Victim). Read it a couple of weeks ago but only now getting around to reviewing.

Like the structure of The Reluctant Nude, this story focuses primarily, almost exclusively just on the H/h. I honestly can't think of another character in this book.

Dominic Tyler, known as Ty is a one man reality show. His tv show is a cross between Survivor/Man vs. Wild with a little bit of MacG

There is only one reason I decided to read this book...Meg Maguire is the alter ego of Cara McKenna. Last year I discovered Ms. McKenna and her book Willing Victim and really, really really liked it. So when I started following her on Twitter and discovered she had an alter ego - I knew I would be reading Meg Maguire’s debut Harlequin Blaze Caught On Camera. That’s not to say I may not have picked this book up based on the cover/back blurb but since Meg Maguire = Cara McKenna, this book quickly ...more

The Cheeky Nutshell:
Meg Maguire is an exciting new Harlequin Blaze author who'll be on my auto-buy list for her emotionally complicated but totally realistic characters that I loved from page one. Caught on Camera was a tightly structured book that kept the entire focus on the emotional struggles of the hero and heroine. The intense focus on the internal conflicts in this story raised it above the average Blaze, which with how much I love Blazes says quite a lot.

I liked the fun tone of the back

I wanted to like this because the premise sounded interesting and I have loved everything I've read by Meg Maguire/Cara McKenna. Kate kinda ruined that for me. I liked Ty, but Kate was awful to him. He's supposed to be her best friend, but the way she talks to him and treats him after their relationship starts to change is awful, and sometimes even cruel.

Also, these two are supposed to have an ultra-close relationship, but neither knows about the huge, defining moments in the other's past that
4.5 Stars

This was a really nice read! I was on vocation for the past three days, and though I didn't get to read THAT much I'm happy I decided to read this one even though I originally didn't plan on reading it this month but since I've been reading like crazy I added this one and a few others to my October reading list. I started reading all of Meg's novels a while ago and actually I only have one left - Trespass - which I will be reading next month.

I really like that every book by Meg brings

Rating: 4.5 out of 5

Caught on Camera went above and beyond my expectations. The story and characters are so much deeper than the blurb lets on. Kate Somersby grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, abandoned by her father and left with an emotionally distant mother. After a childhood of feeling like a burden, she leaves behind her painful life in Massachusetts and moves to Los Angeles to reinvent herself. She takes a job as the personal assistant and camera woman of Dominic Tyler (Ty), a wilder
At times when reading this, I felt like the luckiest reader in the WHOLE WORLLLLLLLD, I was enjoying the book so much. The characters were smart and bantery and clearly enjoyed each other's company (and thus I enjoyed theirs) and the power dynamics were interesting (he may be her boss, but she's the self-described control freak who tells him what to do--and thankfully, the power dynamics in bed aren't skeevy, even if the two of them do play with said power dynamics), and I was completely investe ...more

Loved it. Fresh and different and new. Fantastic to see a less-than-perfect hero too -- although seemingly all self-assured on the outside, it became clear very early in the picture that Ty was almost... fragile. He was one of the most interesting and multi-layered heroes I've read in a category romance for a long time.

Kate's need for control was believable and authentic. The banter between the two of them was particularly fantastic -- they really came across as two people who really had lived

3 stars overall
writing: 3.5 stars
memorability: 2.5 stars

fun and forgettable. i was very impressed with the author's Willing Victim (written under pen name Cara McKenna) and so happily picked up this work, marketed as a more-straightforward romance. It's a sort of fun setup -- a reality-adventure star and his long-suffering assistant/producer/show runner are stranded well off the beaten path while filming an episode for his survival series.

the characters have good chemistry

The story focuses on Kate and Ty. Kate is a personal assistant for Ty, star of an Extreme Survival show called Survive This!. But more than being a personal assistant - she is also the camera assistant, travel agent, etc. Basically - she does EVERYTHING for Ty and this show, except be in front of the camera. And she has had a mad crush on him forever.

One day while filming an episode in a snowy location, they have an accident and become stranded. And well, I'm sure you can guess that they both ga

First, you'll have to excuse the cheesy cover for this book because it's so bad. Cover aside, I liked this book so much!

Meg Maguire is Cara McKenna's pseudonym. (Or is it the other way around? I'm still not sure.) I tend to love her grittier books written as McKenna more than those written as Maguire, so I was surprised to enjoy this one as much as I did. The main characters have awesome chemistry and oh, how I love books with the friends-to-lovers trope. At first, I didn't think I would like Ty

Meg Maguire’s debut Blaze is a buddy romance about Ty, who stars in his own reality survival show (think: eating raw birds’ eggs in the wilderness), and Katie, his Gal Friday, who’s in charge of finding the birds’ eggs. I love a good buddy romance, and this one has great chemistry, wonderful dialogue, and sex scenes just this side of raunchy, which is precisely where I like them. I’m particularly loving Maguire’s eye/ear for the great little details of a close m/f friendship between two people w ...more

Meg Maguire is a good author, and I really liked the characters and setting. Both Ty and Kate had very interesting background stories and personalities. Unfortunately I didn't really like how the relationship developed. For two people who have been in love with each others for years, and have been each others 'everything except lovers' they manage to really not get each other and fuck it up. I liked Ty, but how he ruined everything just to get the girl with a big bang at the end, stupid, stupid, ...more

For the past two and a half years Kate has worked hard as personal assistant to daredevil and TV personality Dom Tyler. Ty loves to push his luck, wilderness trecks, rock climbing, the more danger the better. He films it all for his reality TV show with the help of Kate but when their latest adventure leaves them stranded in the snow they are going to have to rely on luck to help them through. Finally with a chance to each share more of themselves and explain how they feel, their night brings bi ...more
The Lusty Literate

This book is SO HOT. Meg Maguire is a fantastic erotic writer. She reminds me of Sylvia Day but with less angry sex. Her characters have good hearts and care deeply for each other, they just haven't allowed themselves to cross the line to lovers. When they do, trapped, alone and away in the wilderness, it's just enough angst- demanding, commanding, passionate and so good. Then it's desperate and role reversing- impatient and selfish. Then impulsive and base. Then finally honest, emotionally r

Meg Maguire is turning out to be one of my favorite authors. In a genre of dominant alpha males hers manage to be vulnerable whilst also retaining their masculinity. Her heroines whilst having their own vulnerabilities can also cope with them and lead fulfilling lives.

There were many similar plot points to her other book - The Reluctant Nude but that didn't detract from the story, which was fascinating in and of itself.

Whilst definitely romantic/erotic fantasy there is at least some semblance to

would i recommend? you bet.

i've been in a blaze reading frenzy of late, and if you read more then a couple of blazes in a row, the formulaic aspect tends to colour the enjoyment. but this book has some interesting aspects that separates it - loved that we got some inner dialogue from the alpha hero. enough to see that this gorgeous hunk of man has some insecurities (related to past tragedy, of course). the heroine is just as flawed, but her drive and intelligence gives her some oomph.

I didn't expect to actually enjoy this book, but I did. My low expectations made "Caught on Camera" all the more enjoyable. Yes, sometimes Kate's 180s gave me whiplash, but the chemistry she has with Ty doesn't feel forced.
