Raquel and Harrison sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G.
First comes love.
Then comes marriage.
Then comes a baby in the baby carriage.
That’s how her brother used to sing it when we were kids—a simple ploy to get under my skin and make me stick my fist in his face—but man oh man, did he get the order wrong.
One night of “kissing” in New York catapulted us straight to the pregnancy portion of the song—surprise!—and now I have to figure out how to carry out the whole melody in reverse.
A baby on the way first.
Then love and marriage?
It’s complicated on its best day.
But our situation is far more problematic than just a simple twist of nursery rhyme lyrics. Before our night together, Raquel Weaver was the best-known good girl in Hollywood—a twenty-nine-year-old sexpot virgin whom the world adored and watched like a hawk.
Obviously, the consequences of that kind of reputation don’t just go away. Add in pregnancy hormones, the media, a fake fiancé, and a selfish manager, and you have the short list of my problems.
As a thirty-four-year-old, successful CFO of a multibillion-dollar media conglomerate, I thought I would be able to handle anything show business could throw my way, but I’m starting to think I might be in over my head.
Good thing I’m all in.
Winning Hollywood’s goodest girl is going to take everything I’ve got.
Heck yeah! I LOVED this book. I mean, I know I say that about every book by Max Monroe, but I REALLY LOVED Winning Hollywood’s Goodest Girl. Why? Get ready for the gushing!
- The way Max Monroe worked flashbacks into the story. Normally, I don’t like them, but they worked here the way they unraveled one important night between Harrison and Raquel.
- Raquel was exactly what I would hope America’s Hollywood sweetheart would be.
- The way Raquel’s fame was portrayed. I wouldn’t wish being a celebrity on my worst enemy at this point… Or maybe I would…
- Harrison was so sweet! I have enjoyed him in their other books, but he really shined here. I loved his support of Raquel.
- The “bad guy” in this one was SO BAD! So bad, it was good.
- The Billionaire Book Club guys’ cameos. So fun!
- I didn’t want it to end. That’s how much I loved it.
