"The Director's Cut" by Janice Thompson

About this book:

  “The one thing she can’t direct is her heart.
Tia Morales is used to calling the shots. She's the director of the popular sitcom Stars Collide, and her life on set is calculated and orderly. Well, most of the time. But her life outside the studio is another matter. If only she could other people to behave as well as her stars do! When she starts to have feelings for handsome camera operator Jason Harris—with whom she’s been butting heads for month—it’s enough to send a girl over the edge. Will she ever learn to let go and take life—and love—as it comes?
Full of the humor and crazy family dynamics Janice Thompson fans have come to love, this colorful story gives readers an inside look at Hollywood and a healthy dose of romance.”

My personal Rating-

Another Janice Thompson series is reviewed! This trilogy set in Hollywood is such a fun read and, of course, the characters are quirky. ;) This might not be my favorites by this talented author, but it’s still a fun series with great Spiritual Content.

See y’all on Monday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
