In this smart and swoony adventure rom-com, a journalist and a movie star find themselves teaming up to cover up a murder...and falling for each other in the process.

When freelance journalist Khin Haymar is assigned by Vogue to get a scoop on Tyler Tun, Hollywood’s hottest movie, she's determined to succeed. Tyler has returned home to Myanmar to shoot his latest film, and if Khin’s able to get an exclusive, there may well be a permanent position waiting for her at Vogue Singapore.

Tyler has a very private life and doesn’t show any sign of letting down his walls for Khin. But then one night on set, a man follows Khin into the park. When he threatens her, Tyler steps in and things escalate fast. Khin knows they can’t go to the police, even if this was self defense, and even if this stranger seems to have targeted her specifically.

As Khin and Tyler work together to hide their secret and find out more about her attacker, they grow closer and Tyler finally starts opening up. But now the idea of writing the article gives Khin an uncomfortable morality-related guilt. Before long, everything hangs in the balance. Will they get away with murder? Can Khin get the exposé she needs for her dream job? And is she willing to risk Tyler’s trust in the process?

Do you like romcoms, true crime and also thinking about lives of celebrities? Yes? Then do I have a book for you! Pyae Moe Thet War did such an incredible job at creating such a deeply (painfully) relatable character in Khin and truly the celebrity of a book lovers dreams in Tyler that I can promise you you will laugh, gasp, shriek and cry just as much (if not more) than I did all while surrounded in the beautiful world of Myanmar and the behind the scenes of making a movie. 10/5 stars, cannot wait to read more from this incredible author.

THIS BOOK! 🤯 5 star read!!!

There is nothing I love more than an unhinged female lead within a suspense thriller WITH romance. SIGN 👏 ME 👏 UP!

I devoured this book, my goodness was it the perfect ratio of pacing and character development.

I will be purchasing this book for my shelf of book trophies and probably do a reread.

Do yourself a favor and read it.

Thank you Netgalley for the ARC 💜

This was an amazing read. It was my 2 favorite genres rolled into one book: Romance and mystery. It was also a great immersive cultural experience reading about Myanmar and learning about their celebrity, family, and food culture there. It was different from reading about movie stars in LA. Khin and Tyler both have their walls up to each other in the beginning and there is a level of mutual distrust between them, where Khin is a journalist shadowing Tyler for a scoop on his life and Tyler is an amazing actor who knows how to control his emotions and tells around other people. It was interesting to see how after sharing a life-altering experience together, these walls slowly come down and their relationship evolves.

I ADORED Tyler's character. Tyler is the protective type and adores Khin. He fell first and hard. There were some moments where I was crying because my heart broke for the two characters. Khin and Tyler had a lot of chemistry and I liked seeing them get to know each other past the initial journalist-subject relationship. I liked how even though Tyler was this amazing famous actor, Khin still held her own in the relationship and had her own brilliant and admirable accolades. They both were equals in the relationship and each brought their own assets to the table. Their respective best friends are also great side characters - they are so supportive and offer unconditional love to our main couple.

Thank you to St. Martin's Press and NetGalley for the ARC in exchange for an honest review!

I was so excited to start reading this book. My friend saw it and knew it screamed me. Some love and mystery? I’m sold. I’m certainly in my mystery rom-com era and this itches the scratch. It’s funny at the perfect moments and even some unexpected ones. It’s a quick read especially when you can’t put it down. 4.5/5
