Review by: L Mohan Arun on Feb. 26, 2014 :
The story is a nice, sweet romance between a football player and a TV show actress. A good measure of steaminess thrown in.

Plus:
Written with simple sentence forms, easily understandable.

Minus:
Stereotypical characterization - football player and actress?

Review by: Renee Waring on Jan. 06, 2014 :
What a wonderful Prequel to the Hollywood Hearts series. This is the story of two of the characters from the first book in the series, If I Loved You. Mark Davis, brother of the Megan in ILY, and Penny Thatcher, the love of his life, and how they met.

Mark is an up and coming quarterback playing second string to an arrogant and trouble-making first stringer. Penny is a beautiful young starlet, trying to make her way in the Hollywood jungle. She has risen above a not-so-pleasant past to a promising career in films when her life, quite literally, collides with Marks' in Beverly Hills.

Mark returns to Las Vegas with his team and begins to search on line to find out who the beautiful woman is that ran into him on the sidewalk on Rodeo Drive. He never got her name, nor did she get his, even though the attraction between them was immediate and strong.

Mark and his first string counterpart find themselves going on a blind date, back in Vegas, and one of the girls turns out to be Penny. Naturally, the first stringer wants his date to be the hot young starlet, but he is so arrogant and boorish that Penny rejects him and is afraid that Mark will be the same type. He proves her wrong and they begin seeing each other.

Issues from both of their pasts rear their ugly heads and do their best to destroy the fragile new relationship. Will their love prevail? That was one of the things I liked best about this novella, even though I knew they would end up together, I found myself wondering if the roadblocks really could be circumvented and get them to the little house with the white picket fence that Penny dreams of.

The book is well written, flows smoothly, and includes a little back story on Marks' sister, Megan. The characters are all strong and draw you easily into their world. Once you start it you won't want to put it down.

Review by: hrhsophia on Jan. 04, 2014 :
I liked some aspects of this story but these were two people with serious trust issues. Understandable yes but still disconcerting for two who professed love. Also a little simplistic on the plot. Those photos for instance, internet anyone?
