4.9 Stars

Breaking Hollywood is a a hot and hilarious standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author Samantha Towle...

It wasn't supposed to be like this. I wasn't supposed to be boyfriendless, homeless, and jobless at twenty-eight. And I most definitely wasn't supposed to hit Hollywood's resident bad boy Gabriel Evans with my car and break his foot.
Now, my guilt and homelessness have me living in his apartment, taking care of him, while he's incapacitated.
Living with the hottest guy in Hollywood, who I've had a crush on forever, doesn't sound like a chore, right?
Gabriel Evans is a crude, rude asshole who drinks way too much and smokes like a chimney.
The sooner I get a new place to live and when Gabriel's foot is healed, I'm out of here.
So, why do I keep forgetting to check the classifieds? And why do I keep getting flustered when I see him shirtless?
Breaking Hollywood wasn't part of the plan. But neither is falling in love with him.

We're in Hollywood with Gabe and Ava.
We already met both in WARDROBE MALFUNCTION - but you don't have to have read that to understand this story. (You obviously should though. ☺)

Ava was just let go from her job.
As of tomorrow she'll be boyfriendless. Jobless. And homeless. She'll only have her little pet goat Gucci.

Enter Gabriel Evans. Hollywood superstar. Hottest guy on the planet.

She's always had a huge crush on the guy. But that stops when he opens his mouth and yells and curses at her ... nonstop.
Why would he curse at an innocent girl in the streets of Hollywood you ask?
Because she kinda drove over his foot with her car!
And now he has to wear a cast/boot thingy for six to eight weeks.
Good thing Ava doesn't have anything else to do with her life at the moment - she's moving in with Gabe to take care of him.
Fighting. Cursing. Yelling. Arguing.
Flirting. Fantasizing.

What will happen with Ava & Gabe (and Gucci)?
Will there be a HEA?



I've always been a fan of Hollywood Romances.
They're the next best thing to Rockstar Romances! (and I looooove those!☺)

This book was sooo amazing!

I started reading and I was instantly charmed by Ava and Gabe. They start out yelling and fighting and cursing and bickering. It's all this amazingly adorable foreplay. Only they don't know it yet.
Secretly they're both hugely attracted to the other - but Ava thinks he would never be interested in her. And Gabe thinks he would only want her for one night. He doesn't do serious. And he doesn't sleep around with people he works with - or with people working for him - like Ava now does.
But of course they can't keep their hands off each other for long. ☺

Of course not everything is hilarious and fun - there are some serious moments too. Gabe has some stuff in his past that we need to uncover and deal with.

I just loved reading this book. I finished it in one day!
I don't want to spoil any of the amazingly funny & adorable moments.
(Preferably not in public!!!☺☺☺)
And you might also want to go check out where your closest goat-dealers are!

BREAKING HOLLYWOOD was such an adorable & hilarious Hollywood romance.
Run to your nearest amazon for your own Gabe - this one is MINE
!!! Gucci is mine too!!!!!

If I had to name some things I didn't like ... we have this typical misunderstanding/lie/drama thing that happens in so many books towards the middle or the end. It could've been prevented by just talking to each other or rather listening to the other, instead of getting mad and angry and breaking up or whatever they always do at that point. I wish I would one day find a book where there is such a thing and bam, the hero talks to the heroine and TOGETHER they try to find out what happend or who is working against them. It wasn't all that bad here - not at all - but I just don't like those unnecessary drama moments in books. Just thought I should mention it. But don't worry - they clear it up pretty fast!
Also - the book is set in America with American characters. The author is British and it shows on every page. Especially with those way over 20 AS's that I counted - if you know my reviews, you know I hate that. The AS that could and should be exchanged for a since or a because. It's such a British or legal thing. I HATE IT!!! No idea why it bothers me so much - it just does. But it doesn't stop the book from being an amazing Hollywood Romance!!! I'm just weird that way - no one else on the planet will be bothered by it! ☺
Also - goat Gucci totally makes up for it!!! I LOVED HER!!! ♥

ARC received for an honest review

If you have read Ms Towle's book Wardrobe Malfunction (and if not, why not?) you have already met our protaganists Gabe and Ava.  However, you do not need to have read it to read Breaking Hollywood.

From the first break to the last word, I was hooked on this book.  I loved their bite and snark, and ohhhh the sexual tension between them is off. the. charts!

I was instantly charmed by Gabe and Ava - even through all the yelling and screaming at each other.  You can't have that kind of passion - good or bad - without some kind of feelings, right?

And - fighting is foreplay!

And what lovely, delicious foreplay it is.  From the beginning, I couldn't help be know these two would be perfect for each other, if they just let it happen.

It is sweet and sexy, however there is also some darkness and sadness thrown in for good measure - can't have it all easy!

Though at times I wanted to scream at our lovelies - especially Gabe - I just knew they would get their act together eventually.

Not going to lie though, he little scene stealer throughout the  whole book is a pygmy goat.  Now, I was only talking to friends the day before reading that I wanted a goat, and now that want has ramped right up.

If you don't go hunting for a pygmy goat before the end of this book, there is something wrong with you!!

I loved seeing Vaughan and Charly from Wardrobe Malfunction, a little glimpse to where there life is at.

And there are plenty  of characters that I need to know more about **cough cough Julian and Tate**.

Please give me more, Ms Towle.  I need more!

Can't wait so see what Ms Towle brings us next.
