“You’ve done better.”
With one uncharacteristically sassy tweet to her longtime celebrity crush, Zoe Miller’s life turns upside down. Ultrahot A-lister Chase Covington doesn’t just respond to Zoe’s tweet, he does the unthinkable: he messages Zoe directly. Now she must decide between walking away or meeting her crush in person.
Chase knows better than to trust anyone from the Internet, but Zoe’s saucy challenge has totally caught his interest—and her girl-next-door personality is keeping it. He’s been burned enough to know he needs to keep his heart close. But his feelings for Zoe might be a lot more than just an online flirtation. He just has to convince her…
When the press gets wind of Zoe and Chase’s secret relationship, their romance turns into tabloid headlines. Will they be able to hold on to their Hollywood love story?
Zoe has been a fan of Chase Covington’s since she was 12 (he was just a teen actor at the time). When she responds to one of Chase’s tweets and lets him know that one of his movies was sub-par, it catches Chase’s attention. They start to converse via direct message and ending up meeting. After an incident with a bowling ball and his PA, Zoe becomes his personal assistant. She’s not sure how she’ll do it as she is in her last semester of college, takes care of her brothers and sisters when needed and has an internship at a foundation as well. Chase makes it easy on her and they spend a surprising amount of time together.
The more time that Chase and Zoe spend together the closer they become although at times Zoe’s not sure what Chase’s intentions are. They seem to be on dates at times, but he never kisses her. He seems to have no problem with the fact that she’s celibate and waiting for marriage, but is that what’s holding him back? When a question of trust comes up between Zoe and Chase neither one is sure they can trust the other to be in their life for the long haul.
This was a very cute and sweet story. I really liked Wilson’s writing style and her sense of humor. She made me laugh on more than one occasion and I loved that.
Zoe was a great girl and I really liked her. She tried to be the best person she could be. She was so good with her younger siblings and I loved seeing them interact. She kept her relationship with Chase a secret from her best friend and roommate, Lexi, which I had mixed feelings about. They didn’t seem like they would have a relationship where they would keep secrets but I kind of understood Zoe’s insecurities and thoughts that Chase might choose Lexi instead. I didn’t think he would be I got that a young girl might think that way. It did kind of annoy me that she kept thinking of him as Chase Covington for such a long time rather than just Chase. I guess that goes with the title of the book so I tried to let it slide when it happened.
Chase was a nice person. He said he hadn’t always been but the person he was at the time of this story was kind and for an A-list star, pretty down to earth. He did have one moment in the book where I wanted to hit him, hard, but he made up for that in the end. 🙂
Overall the book was cute and fun and I enjoyed it thoroughly.
