    Aleyna is trying to make her way into the world of film and works as an extra whenever she can. Carson is an up-and-coming actor, who is an all-around great guy. The characters and their friends are realistic and fun, which makes them relatable.The story is told in first person, which never fails to draw me in as an honorary best friend to the main character. As Aleyna works on set, the reader is given a bird's eye view to the word of acting, which is very interesting, as well as a best friend's vantage point to a budding and potentially heart-stopping romance, which is ooh-la-la. The natural ebb and flow is engaging and had me gripped from the chance encounter in the smoothie shop.Why only 4 stars? I honestly wanted more! I would have loved to see this in a full-length novel with more development and drawn out situations because I liked it that much. If you need a quick romance fix, this is a story to try!Content: mild romance (kissing)

Aleyna is a sympathetic female lead and Carson is yummy. It's a novella so things move pretty quickly, but it does span nearly a year, which helps make it believable. It's a story about believing in yourself and following your dreams.4 1/2 stars

    I read this a while ago, but forgot to post my review. Since I couldn't recall the details, I decided to just read it again.It is a wonderful story filled with career struggles, friendship and love. It is about acting, smoothies, gluten-free food and jogging. With some nice characters and a good story-line.I loved it - and didn't mind reading it twice in the same year!I received a copy and chose to review it.

    This book seem to be boring at first til i started to get into the story as it gotten good. I love the relationship between Carson and Aleyna, pressures of being together as she beginning to think that he was toying with her. they did have beautiful memories together as well then he ending hurting her til the end he makes a promise and that he wasn't perfect. I am glad that they ended up together because i was wondering when he would come back and that i missed them together. This is a sweet light read i truly enjoy reading and finished reading it in 7 or 8 hours as i love how the book ended with a kiss and how she succeeded in following her dream. I loved this book so much.I recieved a free copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.

    I enjoyed this short romance, which is set within the movie business, and focuses on the roles and relationships of two brothers. Aleyna is an aspiring actress, who can’t get a big break, but successfully auditions for a bit part on a TV show; a bit of luck ensures her regular work with the show; leading her to form a friendship with the lead actor Carson, but he is a player, and she lacks trust, which has a negative impact on their relationship. This story is about trust, love and empowerment; it is well written, and has a good back plot, I would like to have more insight into some of the background characters.

    Such an endearing story.A sweet endearing story about a woman trying to make it as an actress and her journey which leads her away and back to her first love of acting. It was very interesting seeing how actors must make it in the world, starting small and hoping for "the big break." And having to decide how far to push it until you need to do something else. Starting a romance amongst all this is crazy, but who can control falling in love. Heartbreak leads to a better break which in turn leads to finding her lost love. It is a true journey with an HEA.

    A short, sweet book. It was fascinating to read about the audition process and what it's like working on the set of a show as an extra and as a stand in. Carson said he was no good for Aleyna , but all I saw was consideration and care for her...He went out of his way to accommodate her diet restrictions, he drove her around when her car broke down, he paid for the repairs on that car, and he encouraged and supported her in her career. Who wouldn't want to be with a guy like that?

    Aleyna has always dreamed of being an actress. When she gets her chance, she finds more than she bargained for. But can she really trust Carson and let herself give in to what she feels? I enjoyed this story.

    Great book! I loved it! The only thing was that at one point in the book it abruptly skips to one year later. I would have liked to learn more about what happened during the year that gets skipped over and how the main character got along with her acting career.
