Brett Shackley came to Hollywood for a taste of the fast life and hot, famous men. He never expected to find love behind the scenes.
Brett Shackley has watched his best friend find love with a famous actor. His connections have also given him the opportunity to work as a personal assistant to another Who’s-Who in Hollywood. He’s a bit flamboyant and perhaps a tad too giddy when he settles on a new celebrity crush. So blinded by the brilliance of the bright lights headliner, he fails to see what’s right before his eyes.
Brett follows his boss to yet another movie set, preparing to scope out the new faces on the latest project. Sadly, it also means he’s sidelined with all the other assistants and behind the camera crew. Brett doesn’t mind too much as long as a certain actor gets a shirtless scene—and soon!
Eddie Huff has been around a couple of years. He knows a thing or two about playing it cool. The fact that Brett, a fellow personal assistant to the stars, is going gaga over Eddie’s A-list boss annoys him. What’s worse is that he now has to stay in close proximity with Brett. He gets to hear each longing sigh and flattering gush of superlatives— every single day. It’s enough to drive a guy insane.
What’s worse is, Eddie begins to suspect that he might be just a teeny bit jealous that Brett’s single-minded attention is wasted on a star who couldn’t care less about anyone except himself.
Eddie thinks Brett might be the man for him. Now he has to convince the starry-eyed novice that the right heartthrob for the part isn’t the guy in front of the camera.
This is book three in the Hollywood Hotties series and can be read as stand alone.
This is all about the assistance, Brett friend has found love with a Hollywood actor and now Brett wants the same thing, no matter that the actor is question is straight. However, said actor’s assistant is not, Eddie knows the score but when Brett comes over for dinner and a chat things heat up. Brett and Eddie are cute together, Brett is this care free everything smells like roses, and Eddie has been around for a few years and understands the real score. Because the story is so short, about 50 pages, I couldn’t get much of a deeper connection with these two. But I did feel the pain Eddie went through with Brett’s supposed betrayal, not sure I would have been so quick to understand or forgive. I also liked at the end we finally saw what an a-hole Damon really is, not just Eddie telling us. This was a quick no deep thinking right before bed read.
