Product description

Product Description

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?

What a great comical romance! OK...I know many were worried about Rourke crossing over into the NA Romance genre, but I never doubted that I would enjoy this book. I have found that anything this woman writes I will read! I've been a huge fan of Stacey Rourke's ever since I fell in love with her YA paranormal series, the Gryphon Series. I read The Conduit (book #1 of the Gryphon Series) way back in 2012 & devoured the rest as soon as they were released. I totally loved everything about that entire series, but my very favorite parts would be the way her comical quirkiness always shines through & her characters are never lacking depth. Every creation since has carried that through, even in her newer Legends Saga that is much darker than the Gryphon Series, while blending the perfect amount of action, suspense, & wonder into the mix. Basically, she repeatedly sucks me in & cracks me up, & I love every minute of it!!
Obviously Adapted for Film was different than any of her other works considering the genre, but the characters were just as lovable (ok ... some of them you just love to hate, but that's just a different kind of love, right?) & the story inside a story kept me engaged the whole time. The addition of Mr. Hotness *ahem* Greyson was a great twist & the BFF/assistant was killing me...especially while in the presence of Mateo! Pssst...I may have woken the hubby laughing out loud so many times while Kole was aggravating Aubrey & vice versa. The friendships amongst the characters really made me feel their bonds. And..for the life of me I could not determine who Aubrey would end up with! Now if you are still wondering if you will like this story...I say YES! :D If you enjoy a funny read that is not out to break your heart or force you to throw a character off a bridge in a jealous rage then this is a terrific pick for you. Also, be prepared to get a few odd looks when/if you're reading in public as you may have a giggle or a snort escape you without advance notice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Let's Play a Game of Descriptive Narration 8 February 2017
By Christina Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I think that it says a lot about a book when you make your afternoon schedule work around the completion of it. I read this book in an afternoon, but I had to have my Kindle read parts of it to me because I had errands to do--I just wanted to finish!

Aubrey Evans' dreams are all being realized when her popular book "True Love" is being made into film. She's ecstatic, well, she is as ecstatic as anyone could be when their dream is being directed incorrectly, it's wardrobe is all wrong and the ethnicity of some of the characters are so wrong that she wants to scream. So, maybe it isn't perfect? What is the sound of hundreds of fans complaining and boycotting mean? Nothing, right? That's what Aubrey though too-- and that is why she makes her stand against the handsome director, Kole. That, however, gets Aubrey into a different kind of trouble.

As we watch her dreams come to fruition, and the hoops that she is made to jump through, you will fall in love the complete cast of characters in this book. The descriptions are a bit short, I will admit, but there is enough for you to love them all.

The whole time that I was watch--I mean, reading this book I couldn't help but think... Hallmark?
5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Read 9 February 2017
By Jenny Bynum - Published on Amazon.com

I don't know why it took me so long to get to this book, but I am glad I took the time to read it. This book was a lot of fun to read. It was so full of humor, quirkiness, fun, romance and sometimes a bit awkward too. There was so much witty commentary that is so Stacey Rourke and I found myself many times laughing out loud and scaring my cat half to death. The characters were remarkable and I loved how the author brought forth an author, who was an introvert, as the main character of the story. The story-line was genius, I couldn't put this book down I was so enchanted by the story itself. I loved how the author goes from present to past, though usually that puts me off in stories, but it actually worked in this one. It's not the usual Rourke read, but I think the author did an awesome job with this debut New Adult Contemporary Romance and I highly recommend this story to all to enjoy.
4.0 out of 5 stars Kole and Aubrey, Hollywood's next it couple? 25 March 2017
By Crystal M/Crystal's Cozy Corner Blog - Published on Amazon.com

Aubrey is the newest hot author and one of her books have been optioned for film. She heads out to LA to watch the movie magic happen. She meets Kole, the director, and the sparks fly, but not all good. Aubrey and Kole go back and forth about all the changes made to make the book into film. Yet, at the same time, there’s an undeniable spark between the two.

I rather enjoyed this fun read. The characters Aubrey and Tandy (Aubrey’s best friend), have a quick, witty dialogue. My issue, was the writing seemed a little short. It wasn’t as long or descriptive as I have grown used to with Ms. Rourke’s writing. Kind of left me wanting more, in more ways than one. I wish there was more to the story, and I can’t wait to see what happens next. I’m hoping that Tandy and Matthew/Mateo get their own story.
4.0 out of 5 stars Oh boy, was it entertaining. 3 January 2017
By Toinette - Published on Amazon.com

I’ll admit that I knew nothing about this book when I bought it, but because I’ve enjoyed everything else I’ve read from this author, I gave it a go. Had I not just had a ridiculously crazy holiday season, I would have read this in about a day. It was short, funny, and clever; just what I’d expect from Rourke.

So, looking back at the blurb now, I realize I probably would have wanted to read this even if it was written by someone else. The idea of a novelist battling a director over the creative integrity of her book turned film, is something that any hard working author could relate to, or at least dream about. I’m pretty sure that was the overall pull for me. The way Aubrey fights so hard to make her dream of seeing her book adapted and displayed on film, was enough to set aside a few trivial issues I had with the characters. Oh, and I totally geeked when the title actually appeared within the lines of dialog. He he.

The story is flawless and funny; no doubt, a masterpiece of comedy with romance always awkwardly lingering in the air. I was impressed with the author’s command of adult actions and speech. She’s truly mastered her roles as YA, New Adult, and Adult author well. The tone of this story is so much more mature than her YA or New Adult work, and not just because it gets a little steamy. Aside from the typical female insecurities sure to be found on the set of any Hollywood film, these characters aren’t trying to figure out who they are. They know who they are and they all have jobs. They just can’t seem to find love, but that’s an issue that teens and adults will always face.

I did find it a bit hard to relate to the characters, but then we are talking about a teacher from the burbs compared to Hollywood hunks and executives. Even though I felt detached, as though none of it was really happening, I was still thoroughly entertained. It was actually like watching most action movies. Pure entertainment. And oh boy, was it entertaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! 23 March 2015
By Autumn Fallen Over Book Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Ever since I read this author's first book I have loved her writing. With Adapted For Film I was worried how the story would turn out as this is not the author's normal writing genre. I can say that I LOVED it. I see the author's sense of humor coming out more in this book as she has a great one. Through out the whole book I was in a fit of either laughter or giggles.
I really enjoyed how we are told the story through Aubrey's point of view but it was told to an RB (reporter barbie).
Aubrey is an amazing author who one day gets to have one of her books put onto the big screen! How awesome is that for an author to have their work put out on the big screen it is an accomplishment. But when Aubrey comes onto the set that is when tension beings even though her bff is there to try and help her out.
Some of the actors who are playing the parts of Aubrey's book characters are not what she expects, the way she envisions the scenes are not coming together and this makes her butt heads with Kole the director.
Right from the start I could tell that Kole and Aubrey were going to play hard to get with each other. As they can joke with each other but then just annoy the crap out of each other.
When it comes to point that Art the main dude in charge is tired of dealing with the way they are acting he gives them the ultimatum either play together or the film is cut.
With Aubrey seeing her dream being taken away she plays nice with Kole but in the process the higher beings the film industrial decides to spice up the hype of the film by having the author and the main character Greyson "pretend" to be together. Now this is becoming more than Aubrey is bargaining for as she is seeming to lose herself, and we watch as Kole tries to get her to speak her mind and show the world who she truly is.
As the story progresses we go back and forth with Kole and Aubrey and Aubrey and Greyson, throw in Mateo and Tandy and their comical ways and you are bound with laughter, a bit of heartache and finally happiness.
There is no sex scenes just the mention of a leg or two being overthrown that shall not be mentioned. And the two characters that get together at the end we don't get much of their "couple" status just how they became together and finally engaged. Overall this was a really good book, I was very impressed with the author getting into a new genre and doing a wonderful job.

Some of my favorite quotes through out the book.

"Can stress cause someone's eyeball to shoot right out of their socket? I'm legitimately worried about that right now."
"If he looked at me like that for even a second, I'd throw my panties at him hard enough to bruise his forehead."
"I gotta ask, woman to woman, how did you not hit that daily, and nightly, and ever so rightly?"
"If you become any more of a horn-dog we won't be able to allow you on the furniture."
