Stand In Star by Rachel Johns


From Carina Press:

As an anthropologist, Holly McCartney is more comfortable in a museum than shopping on Rodeo Drive. She isn't prepared for the media frenzy on her arrival in L.A. to accept a posthumous acting award for her late sister...or for her sister's gorgeous friend Nate Devlin to come to her rescue. Though he resents her for some reason, she can't fight their irresistible chemistry--especially when the paparazzi force her to stay at his mansion.

Photographer Nate only agrees to help Holly survive Hollywood for her sister's sake, but she soon gets under his skin in a way no other woman has. The more time he spends with her, the more his attraction grows and he finds himself opening up to her in ways he never expected. But will ghosts of the past stand in the way of their perfect Hollywood ending?

The Bad:

I admit, there's not much bad about Stand In Star.  It's a quick, easy, enjoyable romance.  

The Good:

I enjoyed Stand In Star more than I thought I would.  It's not great, but it was a solid story.  The parts about dealing with the sister's death was a little deep and Nate's character was a little too good to be true, as heroes in romance novels tend to be, but overall, if you are looking for something to read on a Sunday afternoon, give it a shot.
