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.
