Series: Gone Hollywood Book #2
Author: Julie Particka
Blurb: Party planner Vicky Stone is on a post-divorce mission. Not only does she intend to land her dream promotion, she’s going to indulge in a night of hot hook-up sex. Preferably with the hunky actor she just met at a work function, no-fraternization rules be damned. Fortunately, his drunken directions included a right that should have been a left, landing her in bed with her brother’s extra-hot, extra-off-limits best friend instead of the unemployment line.
And, oh, he feels good. Too good.
Bad boy Dante Palladino’s forbidden fantasies are about to come true…until Vicky realizes who she’s feeling up. And to find out she risked her job for sex with some loser? Not on his watch. Dante throws down the ultimate, albeit self-serving, blackmail. Vicky will date him—and only him—and her secret will be safe. But Vicky swore never to fall for another guy who could break her heart…and Dante’s on course to do just that.
Thoughts: Blackmailed By The Hero was right up my alley! This sultry title had an intriguing mix of the not-so-secret secret crush on the best friend’s sister, along with a little of the ‘wrong bed’ theme thrown in…not only that, but it was pulled off really, really well. Not to mention of love when two people are so desperately attracted to each other, but for one reason or another are desperately fighting it with all they have. Such a great read!
While it is part of a series, it is very easily read as a stand alone….just by reading it, you would never know that it was from a series unless you look it up. However, it does have me wondering if the first book was as good as this one!
