~ Under the Covers
Honestly, I picked this up completely on a whim. It showed up on my doorstep and at that point I hadn’t even heard of this book coming out. I was sold on it because of the cover and it just sounded extremely fun. I’m so glad I gave it a shot! CRASHING THE A-LIST was a super fun and fast paced book. I completely enjoyed myself.
Our heroine Clara has been unemployed for four months and is now living with her brother. Her future sister in law gets her a job to clear out repossessed storage units for her uncle to make some money while she sends out more resumes to publishing houses. While clearing out a unit she finds documents about an escort service and a file on one particular escort who now happens to be an A-List British actor. One drunk call and a misunderstanding later and he’s standing in her living room accusing her of blackmailing him with that information. And after the paparazzi see them together, a fake relationship follows to give some good press to his next movie.
If there’s one thing I can tell you about this book is that it was such a fun reading experience. It’s filled with great and funny one liners that will have you laughing out loud at every turn of the page. From Clara’s relationship with her best friend, everything she goes through while clearing out all those storage units, and the romance that develops from enemies to lovers to a real connection. This was one entertaining book!
Now for the romance. I actually consider this book more of a chick lit than a contemporary romance. The romance to me was not the focus of the story. It was more of the extremely funny experiences our heroine is going through at this point in her life. And it just so happens that there’s a romance somewhere in there as well. It’s kind of slow moving, which I appreciated given the circumstances. But also fair warning that it is fade to black. In the end, I was ok with all of that and enjoyed this book. But it may be good going in with those expectations. I think it’s a perfect poolside read and I’ll definitely be on the lookout for more from this author.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
