A fun movie star romance full of twists and turns that will have readers laughing and flipping pages well into the night by New York Times and USA Today bestselling romance author Jean Oram.

One picture. One tabloid. Two lives changed forever.

Finian Alexander is one scandalous tabloid photo away from catapulting his acting career onto the A-list. All his bad boy persona needs is an agreeable member of the paparazzi to give him a friendly boost. But vacationing out in the middle of nowhere, the only photographer he knows is way too scrupulous for her own good.

Or is she?

Hailey Summer is desperate for cash—so desperate that she's willing to do just about anything with her photography skills to save her family's cottage and keep her secrets hidden from her sisters. So when sexy, arrogant movie star Finian makes her an offer, Hailey can't resist. But does his proposition take things too far? And when their plans begin to unravel, will Finian and Hailey find the limelight too blinding?

2.0 out of 5 stars Too Sexual 13 May 2016
By Dianna Marie - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This could have been a much more enjoyable read had it not been so sexual. Not only the exploits were told but even their thoughts prior to were constantly being written. The plot had potential, about a bad boy movie star who had a bad boy image to maintain. He was at war with himself and tired of his current status but had financial obligations to maintain. Too bad this story couldn't have been written in a more tasteful manner without all the sexuality being blatantly shoved in your face.

5.0 out of 5 stars I want to be a Summer Sister!! 29 April 2015
By Stephenee - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
* I received an ebook in exchange for an honest review. *

This was my first book by author Jean Oram, but it is far from my last one!! I loved everything about this book! The characters were well developed, fun and made the reader instantly fall in love with them. The setting was so well described that I felt like I was on Nymph Island with the girls, going through the mud looking for turtles and spending a romantic night in the cottage. The dialogue and banter felt real and the book just reminded me of summer, sunshine and fun. It really helped to take the damp coldness away from real life and surrounded the reader with sun, fun and love.

The author did an amazing job with the flow of the book. She based the story around one of the Summer sister's, but it felt like you were the 5th sister as you were reading. There was the typical oldest who wanted to save the younger siblings, the baby who was fighting to be noticed and the middle girls who were still trying to prove themselves. It was such a fun family dynamic and then you throw in Tigger and the world is just bouncing along. I also enjoyed the way that the author portrayed Finian - he was perceived by the world as a bad boy, but in his heart he just wanted to save the world. *Swoon*

The plot was quick flowing, the author threw in some unpredictable twists and turns but there were a few things that the reader knew was coming. I enjoyed being able to follow along and loved not knowing where everything was going. The author hooked the reader from the start and never let them go - even after the story was done, the reader was wondering what was going to happen next to Maya, Melanie and Daphne.

I am already looking forward to reading book 2 in this series and have high expectations, although I am not sure that the author can top this one. The Summer sisters are a great detour from everyday worries and responsibilities. I highly recommend that you add this book and the rest of the series to your TBR list - spend some time with the Canadian Summer sisters and leave your real life for a little bit! Enjoy this one and her others, I know that I will!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great start to series 22 April 2016

I had something totally strange happen while reading this book and it's never happened to me before with any other book. Whenever there was a scene with Finian in it I kept imagining that I was reading about another infamous actor, Charlie Sheen. This made it all the more interesting. But that was only in my head, or was it?
I'm truly a fan of Jean Oram. Her stories just flow from scene to scene, all most enjoyable.
This one is the first in this series and if the others are anywhere as good, which I'm sure they are, then we are in for some happy reading.
5.0 out of 5 stars When You Lose Sight Of Who You Are 31 August 2016
By Michelle Ferrari-Johnson - Published on

This is the first book by Jean Or am that I have read. I saw it was free and I chose this by the cover alone. The couple looks happy and alive and I was in need of a feel good story. I soon discovered it is so much more!

What happens when you combine a small town girl with ethics and a movie star who has lost his way? An adventure of finding the truth and wants of both parties!

I fell in love with the Summer sisters. Each have a strong personality and the importance of family is seen throughout the book. This is the story of Hailey. As the oldest she takes care of everyone. She has forgotten about what she truly wants to accomplish in life. When movie star Finian Alexander, who has a bad boy image shows up in her town, she decides he is the way to fix the family's monetary need to save their island.

Finian is looking for a vacation from Hollywood. He has sold his soul to be the bad boy image they say will advance his career. As he struggles with this he meets Hailey. Needless to say, she turns him down and slaps his face.

What will become to the Summer's family island? Will Finian continue his disguise and completely lose himself?

Great story with twists and turns and a whole lot of emotions~

Muskoka, Ontario, Canada there is a little Island off shore call Nymph Island that The Summer family has had for over a century. Currently, The Summer sisters, Hailey, Maya, Melanie, Daphne, and her 5 year old daughter Tigger, really Kimberly, have come to stay during the summer weekends and vacation there, Their father is deceased and their mother is in a nursing home due to a stroke. She has left the cottage in the care of Hailey. She has not wanted to burden her other sisters she is the eldest but the taxes have sky rocketed and they are due to loose it at the end of summer if they can't pay them.

Enter Finian Alexander a movie star from Hollywood who has come to vacation and also try to be a bad boy to get into the press, to maintain his image. Hailey is a photographer who normally takes nature photos but at one time used to do still photos or as they are also known as people photos. So she thought she could get some of him being a bad boy and make some money for the cottage and the taxes. She spots him going from car to car in the rain but then he ducks into a bar so she does as well. She bellies up to the bar and as they talk she learns he has seen the spotted turtle which are endangered species which could save the marsh from development. Soon as luck would have it she sees him out at the marsh and get shots of him out there with the turtle. Then she has a thought, why doesn't she change his image as she gets to know him and he isn't a bad boy at all, but a man with a heart. Another idea she has is to have an Art show and show case her still photos but he tells her she is playing it safe by not showcasing her nature shots, she has taken. He promised to be there for her as well. He helps her hang the photos as well, and sees she has chosen a photo of him and the turtle. He is surprised and shocked. He didn't know she took it and the look on his face is a man he didn't realize he could be. As they day goes on, they are surprised by his parents and his ex fake girlfriend. With her came all the paparazzi, she is there to get him to be the bad boy. Hailey had released photos of his nature side against his wishes but wanted the public to see the real him. Why not other actors did. Fin took the ex out to eat to tell her go home, it is over, he never like the fake relationship and it wasn't going to continue. She plants a kiss on him and the photos are shot. Finn sees this and takes off down the rode alone. He gets a ride with the paparazzi in hopes of making it to Hailey's showing but never makes it there. Hailey thinks this means it really is over for them. Finn learns she did it to save the cottage and for his image as well. Won't tell you more but they do end of talking, fighting and go back and forth, the sister all get involved, the parents. Will this be a summer romance or something more?

This series is so well written as I knew it would be Jean Oram writes nothing but the best!! Bring on the next Love and Dreams with Maya Summers continuing her quest to save the cottage.
