Aubrey Evans is living every author’s dream; her sizzling romance novel is being turned into a blockbuster film. She would be celebrating this momentous event, if she wasn’t busy fighting over every tiny production detail with the maddeningly cavalier director, Kole Camden.
When news of their heated rivalry hits the gossip columns, drastic measures must be taken to save their sinking project. In an elaborate PR hoax, she is publicly linked to Greyson Meyers, the swoon-worthy star of her movie. A whirl-wind love affair is staged for the couple to mirror the steamy chapters of her own books.
Can the introverted author resist the charms of Hollywood’s sexiest leading man? Or will love find her in the City of Angels?
Adapted for Film is a contemporary romance that works as a standalone. That being said, I would like to pop into this world again and see what Aubrey and the characters are up to. I really dug Stacey Rourke’s writing style and the way she told the story. The book starts out with a famous romance author being interviewed. You initially think the interview is for her book that has been turned into a major blockbuster movie, but you soon find out that the interview is for her upcoming, high profile wedding. But who is she getting married to? We have no idea as the reader. The interview is broken up and spread out throughout the book as she tells the story that has landed her with her fiance, and throughout it all you see the two main guys in the story and you can’t help but go back and forth a couple of times with who it is going to be.
I hesitate to call this a love triangle, because there really only is friendship between Aubrey, Grayson and Kole up until the very end when the mystery guy is revealed, but it is very obvious that it will be one of the two of those guys that she ends up with. It is a cool premise and I had a lot of fun reading this story. I loved the idea of a story within a story. She is an author on the movie set of her book and she falls in love, while the movie is about an author on the movie set of her book that falls in love. It is really cool. And Aubrey has a wicked sense of humor. She cracked me up from page one all the way until the end. Another thing I loved about the book was that the production company making the movie was called Raven’s Claw. That made me smile every time I saw it.
My only minor gripe with the story was that I wanted a little more in the second half of the book. I loved the set up of the friendships and I thought the story line flowed great. But I wanted a little more detail and day to day interaction between Aubrey and the guy she eventually ended up with. I loved them together and I feel like their development kind of coasted after a certain point. But even still, their journey was a very cute romantic comedy set up. I also should point out that even though her book is supposed to be very sexually charged, Adapted for Film was actually pretty tame. It was a nice read, but not racy by any means. I thought it was fitting for the storyline. If you are looking for a quick rom/com type read, Adapted for Film fits the bill.
