The heroine: Juliet Nolan – Juliet recently started her own mobile dog grooming business and is helping out a friend by working as a “Seat Filler”at a major Hollywood awards show.
The Hero(es): Noah Douglas – An A-list movie star that is in the running for many of the major awards during the current award season. He has been an actor since he was a child and spent most of his years growing up on a TV show that was eerily similar to Saved by the Bell. Then he joined the military for a few years and returned and transitioned to doing movies. He was recently in a hugely popular trilogy called Duel of the Fae.
The Story: Juliet had a major crush on Noah throughout her teenage years, but when she meets him at the awards show, he is arrogant and condescending so she pretends not to know who Noah is. Noah is immediately intrigued by this girl in a fancy dress and pink converse high tops who is snarky and unimpressed by him.
I really enjoyed this story it was a clean romance with a lot of steam. Juliet had a very bad experience when she was young and has a very real fear of kissing. It is so bad that the few times she tried she has experienced panic attacks. So Noah offers to help Juliet with her problem and it leads to some pretty steamy kissing scenes.
The narrator is terrific. This is told by the heroine’s POV, so there is only a female narrator, but she has a great voice which fits Juliet perfectly, she has just the right amount of innocence and sass. She also did the male voice perfectly with a deep enough voice to make it sound great. This was a great book to listen to via audiobook!
