After her very public romance with superstar singer Cory Sampson nearly cost Emily Watts her career, she's thrilled to be bouncing back with a new fashion column for the nation's top entertainment website. More than that, she's happy to be out of the media spotlight and is determined to never make tabloid headlines again. So when her new yoga classmate, Raine Kingston, wants to see Emily outside of class, she isn't sure what to do. Raine is funny, madly attractive, and he's one of the most charming men Emily has ever met. He's also a sought-after actor who tops Hollywood's A-list, and Emily knows being seen with him will destroy the privacy she's worked so hard to get back.
She can't deny their connection, though, and Raine is willing to spend time together in places they won't be seen. Just when Emily is on top of the world with her new romance, her past finds its way back into the headlines, thanks to a music partnership between Cory and indie band guitarist Jesse Cinder, someone Emily counts among her enemies. With all eyes back on her, it gets harder to keep her dates with Raine a secret, and Emily is forced to choose: stay with Raine, who makes her the happiest she's ever been, and have her life back in the headlines, or give up the best relationship she's ever had to keep the privacy and normal life she craves.
My Book Review:
In Hiding Out In Hollywood, the second book in A Hollywood Dating Story series, the reader catches up with twenty-six year old fashion website owner and freelance writer Emily Watts as she tries to rebuild her life after her life had been plastered all over the internet due to her failed relationships with superstar singer Cory Sampson and former friend guitarist Jesse Cinder.
Emily's life has gotten back to normal, and she wants to keep it that way, especially since she is not a fan of being in the spotlight and having her privacy and personal space invaded by the paparazzi. But when Emily meets A-list Hollywood actor Raine Kingston in a yoga class, she can't stop the connection between them, and they agree to keep their romance private. Emily and Raine's blossoming relationship is going well until Emily's past reemerges and she is thrust back into the limelight when Jesse and Cory join forces and write a song about her. So what's a girl to do when she is faced with another round of unexpected media notoriety that could possibly destroy her newfound happiness?
Hiding Out In Hollywood is an enjoyable chick lit tale set in Los Angeles that continues the story of fashion column writer Emily Watts. This story has enough drama, romance, trials and tribulations, and witty banter that easily engages the reader to follow Emily as she tries to rebuild her career and personal life. You can't help but cheer on Emily as she is faced with a new set of personal life decisions, and once again has to learn how to handle the pressures of an unexpected media frenzy and an unwanted spotlight when Jesse and Cory reemerge, which ultimately forces her to make a decision about her desire for privacy and her romance with actor Raine Kingston. I really loved how Emily and Raine's relationship developed. Raine is such a sweet guy, you can't help but want Emily to figure out how to balance being in the celebrity limelight and maintaining her sense of privacy, while taking a chance at finding love and happiness.
Hiding Out In Hollywood is a lighthearted chick lit tale that would make the perfect summer beach read!
