I understand this is a first published book for this author, and all I can say is please Ms. Matthews, keep them coming <smile>. This was just a wonderful story around Actress meets Writer/Landscaper - I'll keep it quiet on who stalked who first <smile>.
Samantha is a young actress who is semi-closeted for fear of her career goals. She comes across a fan-fic about her TV show character and well it all starts with looking for Hearteyes. Alex is a struggling writer just looking to be published and works for her sister who owns a landscape company. The story is just a fun filled time of wooing, having friends who make fun of you for wooing, and a dog named Yogi Bear.
The main characters are relatable and the author really gives them great background that you understand why they are the way they are. I love this authors style of writing in that it is page after page after page of dialog - I love a book brimming with lots of dialog-it is both out loud funny and at times very serious (Alex's past sent me to tears) and I could not put the book down. There is plenty of bantering moments both between the MC, family and friends, and also some rather steamy moments with the MC.
Bottom-line I gave this 5 stars not only for the well written storyline, the lovable characters but also, cause again, LOVED that is was 3/4 dialog all around.
Ms. Matthews is one of my new favorite authors and will be on my 'watch for more' list for her books.
I received an ARC through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, but would have written the same opinion if I had come across this author on my own.
To see my Amazon review, it is under CC-FUN read
