Another sultry Georgia summer is about to get a lot hotter. Dee Wilkie is still licking her wounds after getting rejected by the precollege fine arts program of her dreams. But if she’d gone away, she wouldn’t have been around to say yes to an unbelievable opportunity: working on the set of a movie filming in her small Southern town that just happens to be starring Milo Ritter, the famous pop star Dee (along with the rest of the world) has had a crush since eighth grade.
It’s not like Dee will be sharing any screen time with Milo – she’s just a lowly PA. And Milo is so disappointingly rude that Dee is eager to stay far away from him. Except after a few chance meetings, she begins to wonder if just maybe there’s a reason for his offensive attitude, and if there’s more to Milo than his good looks and above-it-all Hollywood pedigree. Can a relationship with a guy like Milo ever work out for a girl like Dee? Never say never. . . .
Rating: 4.5/5 Stars
Lauren Morrill has written a sweet summer romance that will leave readers desperate to work on a film set. I’ve always been fascinated with film. In fact, I’m currently minoring in Film in college. The events in this book would be a dream experience.
I thought that Milo and Dee’s relationship developed nicely. However, I would’ve liked it if they would have talked about becoming girlfriend and boyfriend, instead of it just being assumed. They were absolutely adorable together, and I would love a novella where they attended the premiere of the movie together.
Dee’s parents were super sweet. Although they weren’t in the book a super ton, she always had a positive relationship with them. I would have liked to see a bit more communication between Dee and her best friend throughout the summer, but I loved the crew members that Dee made friends with, like Carly and Benny. I would love to read a companion novel, especially one with Carly!
The writing style was great. It was very easy to read, and flowed really well. I loved seeing the events unfold through Dee’s eyes, and just really liked her as a character in general. She was very relatable and reacted to the situations she experienced in a way that I think most of us would react.
Overall, this was a super sweet book that I’d highly recommend.
