About the Book
Tara McDermott needed a job, so she took the only thing available—cleaning house for the swoon-worthy actor, and Hollywood Bad Boy, Rick Shade. When he comes up with a crazy plan to tame his wild reputation by marrying her, she reluctantly agrees so she can pay off her debts and move her daughter back to the Midwest where life is simpler. If only he wouldn’t make her heart pound every time he kisses her.
Rick’s reputation is in the toilet and it’s affecting his job. In order to get a good role, he needs to show Hollywood he’s now a family man. After enticing Tara with a large sum of money to go through with the farce, he sets out to show the public he’s in love. But Tara’s soft lips keep calling to him and soon he doesn’t know what’s pretend and what’s real.
Okay, reader, get ready for a bit of swoon because this tough chick couldn’t help but do just that.
Recently, I have need to just fill my TBR list with Reads that were easy and ultra romantic. Not the ramped up stuff but the romances that are slow burning. The ones that start with a flicker and end with a bon fire.
Acting Married was one of those.
Right away I was swooped into the Hollywood lime light. I couldn’t have agreed more with Tara, that is not the life I want. But how can a girl resist the hunky leading man, Rick (whom I likened to someone like Ryan Reynolds)? She knew she couldn’t resist the pull between them and I can not blame her one bit.
Oh, I could say so much more, but then it would turn into this long thing. Just go on out and get yourself a copy, curl up on the beach or by the fire pit, and enjoy.
