From insta-lover to insta-enemy. All that, and a bag of chips.
It's just a regular old night in my coastal hometown—the place outsiders call the Hollywood of the East—when an impulsive rendezvous with a handsome stranger not only rocks my world, it turns it upside down.
Because the next day, just as I'm contemplating the possibility of a rerun, the guy turns up like a bad penny to open a casting company in direct competition to mine.
Right. Next. Door.
He may have the backing of a deep-pockets LA family that's been in the movie biz since the pictures were in black and white, but I've got the loyalty of the locals. And just enough Southern charm to destroy him.
He can steal my clients, but you can bet your britches he ain't gonna steal my heart.
Fans of 1990's shows like Dawson's Creek and Friends will love this rivals-to-lovers, new-in-town, one night stand romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author Karen Grey.

It took me a while to get into this book because of the timeline but once i got into it i was into it. It was a little different from the books that i normally read but somewhat similar. This was my first old school romance & i have to say, it may have started something for me cause now i want to read more books like this one. I love how Nate and Violet relationship came about and the friendship bond Violet had with her friends. It kinda made me sad to see the group break a part, i felt like they broke up as soon as they were introduced to us readers. I was a bit confused on whether they story was being told based off of a movie/show or if the story was the movie/show but i think that was something that got me into the book. I love how Violet & Nate had to communicate & how they were using maps and not cell phones, it made their love feel like their relationship could actually work. I’m a 2000s baby so a lot of the references didn’t really click with me but to me, i feel like it brought the story to life. This book was well written and the characters were such a vibe, Karen Grey has definitely gotten herself a new reader. This is a great way to start a series. It was just enough to get your attention & leave you wanting more. I cross my fingers and hope to get more of Nate & Violet’s story, i felt like this was just the beginning. The ending left me wondering what happened & who exactly was involved in the accident. I’m really excited to get into Sully’s story, i hope him & Ford could put everything to the side so that the friend group could come back together with a new member added (Nate) so i’ll be adding that to my TBR.
