New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Crusie teams up with USA Today bestselling author Bob Mayer to write a sizzling, high-octane romantic adventure about a straight-talking woman and a straight-shooting man…
Lucy Armstrong is a director of television commercials who’s just been recruited to finish a four-day action movie shoot. But she arrives on the set to discover that the directing staff has quit, the make-up artist is suicidal, the stars are egomaniacs, the stunt director is her ex-husband, and the lead actor has just acquired as an advisor a Green Beret who has the aggravating habit of always being right.
Green Beret Captain JT Wilder had thought that hiring on as a military consultant for a movie star was a good deal: easy money and easier starlets. Instead he has to babysit a bumbling comedian, dodge low-flying helicopters, and resist his attraction to a director who bears a distracting resemblance to Wonder Woman. Then the CIA calls and he realizes that somebody is taking “shooting a movie” much too literally.
I think I’m starting to OD on Jennifer Crusie, lol. This is the second book that was written by both Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer that I’ve read, the first being Agnes and the Hitman. I really loved Agnes and the Hitman, this one…not as much. I think that – for me – it felt like I really didn’t get to know the characters well enough to care about them too much. Like the movie they were filming, they felt a little flat.
With that being said, I didn’t dislike the book. It’s decent and probably only gets such a low grade because it’s being compared to other books in Jennifer Crusie’s body of work. Of which I’ve read at least 4 in the last three days. So she must be doing something for me, lol.
