Make-up artist to the stars. The favorite aunt. Dance teacher. Baby sister. Talented musician and song-writer.
Why did that word rank above the rest? Helen loved her family and understood they wanted her to have the real love they’d all found. It’s just that she’d found her someone special and learned to live without him. She’d been too young for the quirky, idealistic doctor-off to save the world-to notice. And, really, if she had it her way, he’d never know how she’d felt. Now, he was one of her best friends, a pen pal, losing him would be too much.
Seeing him at their parents wedding, Helen realizes the horrible truth: she still loves Joseph… which wouldn’t be so bad if she wasn’t in the situation she was in.
But she was. And her secret will change everything.
Will it destroy hope for a Hollywood happy ending too?

Her plans for rest and relaxation are forgotten as one incredible night with Josh becomes two… And her heart begins to want him as much as her body. Will two kids, one bastard ex-husband, and Josh’s juggernaut career mean the end of their affair? Or can Claire find her happy ending after all?

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
This is the first time I have read anything from this author and after reading Hollywood Homecoming I will definitely have to go read the other books in this series. I loved the look of the cover and also the description of the book, so I had to say yes when asked to review this book.
This story follows Helen and how she has felt about Joseph. Helen has always had a crush on Joseph throughout her teenage years and now he has become a Doctor, they have kept in touch through correspondence because he has been practicing in a different country. When their parents decide to meet and Joseph and Helen meet again her feelings start to be harder to keep showing as just a “friendship” type; little did she know that he has had feelings for her too. Both have kept secrets do you think that their feelings will overcome their secrets?
The author has provided the readers with a well-balanced characters mixed with romance and including a possibility at a happily ever after type ending. Ms. Sasha Summers writing keeps you wanting to keep reading all the way into the early morning (I know I did) and her characters are very unique in their own ways. I loved Helen, she was strong and honest for everyone but still had the sarcasm that mad you laugh. Joseph is a handsome, smart, and has a huge heart. Many series you tend to have to read from book one and forward or you become lost, I felt that with this series you are able to read it separately or in order and with what I have seen in this book I will be getting the other two being in my future to read, I would recommend these books to everyone especially if you love sweet romances with a touch of humor.
