"Hello, Hollywood!" by Janice Thompson

About this book:

  “Athena Pappas is the head writer on one of the most popular sitcoms in television history. But when Vegas comedian Stephen Cosse is brought in to beef up the show's suddenly sagging ratings, she starts to worry about her job. Sparks fly as the competition--and attraction--between the two writers heats up. Athena has never had a problem scripting the romances of her characters. So why is her own love life so hard to script?
  With humor and a Hollywood-insider viewpoint,
Hello, Hollywood! delivers lots of laughs as the characters discover that not being in control of the plot of their lives might just be the best thing that ever happened to them.”

My personal Rating-
While it’s been such a long time since I first read this book, this re-read was still so much fun! There were a few comments and kisses that I didn’t remember, though, so that lowers the ratings a bit, but it was all overall clean. Athena and her family reminded me of Bella and her family, which goes to show me that Miss Janice does great writing funny families!
Lots of Spiritual Content and I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series (again!). ;)

See y’all on Monday with a new review!

My personal Rating-
Well, that was intense! My heart was racing from the beginning to the end. I honestly wish there had been a fourth book in this series about Shaley’s life after all of this. Hopefully not suspenseful, though. Just a calm life for the poor girl! I am glad that in this final book there wasn’t a lot of sexual content or mentions…that stalker was wacko enough! Definitely not a series for everybody.

See y’all on Friday with a new review!
