Audiobook Review: Taming Hollywood’s Baddest Boy (Hollywood, #1). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Taming Hollywood’s Baddest Boy by Max Monroe

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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?

The heroine: Billie Harris – She travels via plane, foot, car and kayak to the Alaskan wilderness to find Hollywood’s former bad boy, Luca Weaver who disappeared from sight eight years ago. She ends up finding him looking like a naked lumberjack and an angry one at that. She thinks he is a “lumberjack fantasy come to life”.

The Hero: Luca Weaver – former child star and an Oscar winner by the age of 18, he was an A-list Hollywood hottie who broke box office records and was a wild one on and off the screen. He was dubbed Hollywood’s baddest boy and he left the limelight for a reason. Choosing to live alone deep in Alaska.

The Story: Billie is vying for a position as head assistant to Serena, one of the most powerful production company owners in all of Hollywood. She is in competition with a brown nosing weasel named Charles. She has worked as a PA on a movie with Serena but is hoping to be hired permanently. So when she ends up sitting next to a couple that seem to know where he is, she knows this is how to ingratiate herself with her boss. Especially since they have a high profile movie for which they need a male lead.

Narrated by Noelle Bridges & Aiden Snow, this book was told via dual points of view and dual narration. Noelle does a great job and I really like her voice, it is youthful and has a lot of emotion and sarcasm, which works perfectly for a Max Monroe romance. Aiden Snow does a great job as well though we don’t hear him till several chapters into the story. He has a deep smoky voice which I really like.

Luca is about the grumpiest man I have ever read about in a romance novel, and I do love a grumpy Hero. I won’t say why he left Hollywood as that would spoil the story, but I will tell you that I really liked him. This was a terrific Alaska adventure as well as a fun Hollywood story.

“I can’t believe I used to love you as a kid. You aren’t even broody or surly, you’re broody and surly’s evil stepbrother, awful!”
