** spoiler alert ** Adam is a hot movie star who lives next to another hot movie star, Jason from the first book in this series.
Lucy is the bff of the new wife of Jason. She's down on her luck and has no loving family so she ends up staying with Jason and whats-her-face. From there she can ogle Adam as he works out... until she gets caught... saving his son's life and he tosses her in jail. (which he never really apologises for btw!)
Anyhow, now they hate each other... until he doesn't hate her.
I was mostly enjoying it to this point, yet still skimming a fair bit.

Then the conversations that had used to be witty, got repetitive and redundant and I started to skim A LOT.
I hate him, I'm cursed, Let me change your mind with my big dick, I hate him, I'm cursed, big dick... etc.

Then, just as it starts to get interesting it jumps the shark a couple times.

It went from a typical mildly entertaining contemporary romance to more of a harlequin style OTT ending.

For me, the most interesting parts of the story were the media blurbs at the beginning of each chapter.
I guess this author just isn't my cup of tea. Oh well.

80.0% "I've been skimming a lot. Contemporary romance isn't my fave genre.
Too much dialogue that became repeptitive many chapters ago and hasn't changed much since.
The most interesting parts are the media blurbs at the start of the chapters.
Now lucy is preg by OM? sheesh. I hate those kinds of plots.
Adam is a too good to believe. Lucy is just starting to come across like a bitch..."
