Back Cover Blurb:

Talia Truman is a manager's worst nightmare. A former child star, Talia traded in her braids and became a smart-mouthed party girl with a penchant for bad boys and even badder decisions. (Usually involving alcohol.) With a massive movie deal on the line, however, Talia needs to keep herself—and her purple thong panties—out of trouble. But sex-addiction rehab? Definitely not her idea…

Unfortunately, being stuck in rehab with emerging country music star Matt Skyler—aka The Most Delicious Man Talia Can't Have—is testing Talia's newfound chastity. All she wants to do is fall off the wagon and onto Matt. But Matt isn't exactly the bad boy she thought he was. In fact, Talia is starting to suspect that this cowboy might secretly be a total gentleman. And worse still, she likes that.

Now, under the blinding glare of the paparazzi, this not-so-bad boy and trying-to-be-good girl must choose between their reputations…and who they really are.

My Review:

This novella is wildly comical. Williams has created a fun, easy to read, well put together story that audiences will enjoy. This is one of those good novellas that has the potential to be a great novel had the author taken the time to turn it into a full length story. They key, as they say, is all in the details. I would have like to see more character development, descriptions, and content. I felt like I was just starting to really get into it when it was over.

The characters were larger than life and easy to like. Living in the spotlight has definitely taken its toll on them and helped shaped who they are today, as did their decisions. I simultaneously felt bad for them and laughed at them. The interactions between the two were at extremes.

As a whole this was a quite enjoyable, quick, short read. It was definitely one of a kind.
