**I received an e-copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review**
Her Hollywood Boyfriend was a book I read last year around November, when I could slip a portion of my time reading. I thought it would be exciting to read a contemporary since I’ve been soaked in reading fantasy-based novels. A bit of normalcy or a story centered on real life sounded nice and it works well when a change in genre is needed to balance things out.
Macey Greere was the girl who fell in love with her book boyfriend. Now she is the girl who was dumped on national television. Ever the perpetual list maker, she decides to create and follow a 10-step program inspired by her favorite romance movies on how to get over heartbreak.
Of course, nothing ever goes as she plans.
He is Mr. Hollywood with the paparazzi stalkers to prove it. His goal is to have a normal, drama-free summer as a counselor for his little brother’s summer camp. That is, until he meets her.
He’s not part of the plan…or so she thinks.
The writing style: is a charm. It was enjoyable and did not leave me bored out of my skin. It was one of the things that I liked about this book. It was written so well that the story flowed smoothly. I found it adorable and soft that it felt like walking on a marshmallow-filled field.
The Characters: Macey Greere was a character that you can easily find yourself relate to. Responsible, up for a challenge, but sometimes neglecting your weak point and denying it, especially if it’s about getting embarrassed. I completely and utterly know this feeling so well in a molecular level. On the other hand, we have Jace Ian Cooper, a.k.a. Mr. Hollywood. With such compassion to care for his brother, he is yet another admirable guy that will make you swoon over in a nanosecond. His shyness makes him all the more cute. Now I can’t say more, because it’s always best to meet the character when you read the book.
The Plot: Although the overall story was lovely, the plot kiiiiiinda ruined it for me. It didn’t reach the level of hype I was looking for that it pulled a couple stars down. It didn’t leave a satisfying, impactful feel and it felt lacking. The plot is one of the major reasons I look forward to in reading and for this book, it didn’t sit well with me.
When life gets too serious or gets over-indulged in something, that would be a great time to read Her Hollywood Boyfriend by K.R. Grace. It will bring out a fun that will make you feel relaxed and wish you knew a Jace Ian Cooper.
The best adventures had their bumps. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be much of a story to tell the grandkids later.
