Product Description

When desperado dork Lux Dawson gets stuck in an elevator at a comic convention, she couldn't be any more mortified.
She's just another writer trying to get her work seen, not to get stuck in a three by four metal box with the sexiest male specimen she's ever seen...who just happens to be guest of honor, Jude Atwood.
Jude's the star of the hottest TV series on the American airwaves, the supernatural detective show Naturals, and he's at the height of his star studded career. Too bad she's a nobody and he has a famous actor girlfriend, who just happens to be his onscreen, epic love. Who could compete with that, right? But for some insane reason Jude wants to know all about Lux...including her disaster of a writing career.
Once those elevator doors are pried open by the jaws of life and reality arrives in the form of hordes of waiting paparazzi, Lux's life is about to explode...
She just doesn't know it yet.

Wow!! This is not Amity's usual kind of kick ass story! I have read all of Amity Cross's books, she is one author I will one click without hesitation!
I loved this book, its not what I was expecting which is why I think I enjoyed it even more. As with all her other books I was sucked in from the first page so no disappointment from me! This is a lovely story.
Lux is a writer, she likes to get lost in her own fantasies, (who can blame her?) she has no family, her parents gave her up when she was born so she's not had the most ideal of childhoods, but she survived and mulled along in life. All she wanted was someone to read her books but no one would touch them so with encouragement from her friend she self published. Lux was helping out at a cartoon convention and whilst on an errand the elevator broke down. Well there was another person in the very same broken down elevator, he was a famous actor called Jude!! Lux being quite an introvert found it hard to have a conversation with Jude. They were rescued but not before Jude managed to get her card!! Little did Lux know that day was about to change her life completely!!
You must read this and find out what's in store for Lux.
I absolutely loved it, I think it's one I could read over and over!! Thank you Amity for yet another 5 star read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet and tame.. 1 September 2016
By Tbascoebuzz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This story was sweet in a Jr. High, PG-13 kind of way. Too tame for me, but a sweet, romantic, low drama, entertaining diversion all the same. All but one chapter is told from Lux Dawson's POV. Too bad we couldn't hear more from Jude's head. That would've made this story worthy of a 5★ studded bang.
Lux Dawson (25)...rejected all of her life. From birth, to never being adopted and then shuffled from foster home to foster home. She suffers from low self esteem...she's a lonely, anti-social wallflower who slowly begins to bloom through her writing and finds her voice. A wonderfully written story of Lux's rise to success. I just wish there was some "bow chicka bow wow". I mean, there's not even a kiss until 70% of the book is gone. The final 20% was the best part of the whole story. If you like a low key drama with lots of attraction but very little romance...a s-l-o-w budding romance that graduates eventually from Jr. High to High School, then you'll probably like this story. It's worthy of the time. Readable but not repeatable. As for me, well... I need more steam.
5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging Fairy Tale 31 July 2016
By BlankTies - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Just finished reading this rags-to-riches-and-love story. I really enjoyed it. Very quick to read -- and kept me reading way too many hours when I should have been sleeping. On many level it was a fun fantasy. A dream come true for the reader along with the character.
I have no idea how accurately it portrays the behind-the-scenes world of script writing and television production, however the characters are pretty well-developed. There were a couple times I got impatient with how the hero and heroine acted and the lack of communication, put the good writing carried me through those times. The heroine's backstory does explain some of her choices, but the hero isn't given as much of a backstory to explain his wishy-washy behavior (parents are divorced; he avoids them to loss them both off. Seems like fertile ground for exploring different motivations, fears, etc.)
Several sub-characters are ripe for sequels: actress Candy; best friend Melody; executive Sharon. I do hope the author explores more of their lives.
Because it's a pet peeve of mine, it was great to have very few typos to pull one out of the story. (Maybe five total? And relatively minor)
A good read, especially for those who enjoy sci-fi, fantasy and Hollywood all rolled into one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute 8 February 2016
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I like Lux and she is definitely not the typical heroine. She is awkward, clumsy and socially inept. However she has this need to be loved and I believe everyone can identify with that. I thought Jude was an A-hole and that Tessa was perfect for him until his grand gesture. We are all waiting on that grand gesture for them to show us he/she cares.
5.0 out of 5 stars The first chapter does an excellent job developing the main character's personality 18 January 2017
By Kristin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I found this book to be a breath of fresh air - read the whole thing in one sitting! I was hesitant to get it at first, as some people commented that it started slow. I didn't think it was particularly slow, myself, though it doesn't exactly start "in on the action" as some books. But I understand why the author made her choice. The first chapter does an excellent job developing the main character's personality, and it makes for a nice contrast as she evolves.

This is more romantic than erotica, which I personally loved. Not that it doesn't have a bit of spice! But I love the urst - the unrelieved sexual tension - that is well played, and causes the "problem" of the book.

I loved that there were some nice flaws to the characters that made them very believable. Well written, and well worth the read.
3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting writing style! 27 July 2016
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I liked the writing style, Lux was a very interesting character with ideals and dreams the male character Jude however, I didn't get to know him very well, I had no idea what made him ticked, there was no depth or development. Don't get me wrong I liked him but, I didn't get him, his motivations, why did he do the things that he did. Also, Lux was very repetitive in her inner monolog there was no growth in her even at the end. This for me is 3.5 stars.
