Do people say they hate someone’s guts so that they can still fall stupidly, head-over-heels in love with the other parts?
Asking for a friend.
Okay, fine. I’m not asking for a friend.
I’m asking for me—and I’m begging you to tell me that the practice of falling in love with your should-be-enemy is common.
Please tell me that I’m not the only person to track down a guy--who used to be Hollywood’s baddest bad boy before he left LA for good—at his off-the-grid cabin in Alaska, show up unannounced, and find him gloriously naked.
This probably happens all the time…right?
Tell me I’m not alone in my stupidity—that I’m not the only woman who would fall for gorgeous blue eyes and a sexy devilish smirk, even if they belong to a broody, mysterious jerk.
Please. Please. Please. Tell me I’m not alone in this.
For the love of everything, I need all the supportive girl power I can get if I’m going to convince Luca Weaver to come back to Hollywood—otherwise known as the place he hates so much that he ghosted Oscar-level success and escaped to no-man’s-land for the last eight years just to avoid it.
Yeah, don’t worry—that smoke you’re smelling isn’t your house catching fire as you read this…it’s just my career and what was previously known as my heart going up in flames.
Gah. Is it just me, or am I totally, completely, and utterly screwed?
4 Heart Review by Ashley
Every time I see that Max Monroe has a new release, I do a little happy dance. No one does rom-com with heart like this duo and Taming Hollywood's Baddest Boy was no exception. The opening alone had my eyes bulging and me looking around to make sure nobody saw me laughing aloud while reading in public.
I adored Billie. Her tenacity. Her kindness. How she went for what she wanted. How she didn't back down from a challenge. Especially when that challenge was a trip to the middle of nowhere to face down a broody, alpha with no plans of ever going back to the life he left behind.
Oh that Luca. What a mess he was. Stuck in his anger and resentment. But with a hidden heart of gold. It shone in the moments when his protective instincts came out. In his friendship with Lou. With how he took care of Billie even when she pushed all of his buttons. How he couldn't stop looking at her, wanting her...
But with two people as strong willed as these two are, it was only a matter of time before things spun out of control. Words were thrown around, tempers flared, feelings were hurt. Nobody was happy. I have to say my favorite thing was how Luca made up for his mistake. How he proved to Billie, not just through his words, but through his actions how much she meant to him. Have the tissues ready because that one gesture had my eyes leaking the happy tears.
With more than one fun backdrop, leading characters who couldn't be more different if they tried, and the sweetest dog ever, Taming Hollywood's Baddest Boy was a laugh out loud page turner. And that ending, lets just say Billie and Luca's love story was made for the movies.
