Synopsis from Goodreads
Raquel and Harrison sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G.
First comes love.
Then comes marriage.
Then comes a baby in the baby carriage.
That’s how her brother used to sing it when we were kids—a simple ploy to get under my skin and make me stick my fist in his face—but man oh man, did he get the order wrong.
One night of “kissing” in New York catapulted us straight to the pregnancy portion of the song—surprise!—and now I have to figure out how to carry out the whole melody in reverse.
A baby on the way first.
Then love and marriage?
It’s complicated on its best day.
But our situation is far more problematic than just a simple twist of nursery rhyme lyrics. Before our night together, Raquel Weaver was the best-known good girl in Hollywood—a twenty-nine-year-old sexpot virgin whom the world adored and watched like a hawk.
Obviously, the consequences of that kind of reputation don’t just go away. Add in pregnancy hormones, the media, a fake fiancé, and a selfish manager, and you have the short list of my problems.
As a thirty-four-year-old, successful CFO of a multibillion-dollar media conglomerate, I thought I would be able to handle anything show business could throw my way, but I’m starting to think I might be in over my head.
Good thing I’m all in.
Winning Hollywood’s goodest girl is going to take everything I’ve got.
Winning Hollywood’s Goodest Girl is a sweet romance which tackles the insidious underbelly of fame.
Harrison and Raquel knew each other as children but life took them in very different directions, one which neither of them is aware of about the other. In a random act of fate, Harrison and Raquel wind up in the same bar at the same time following significant events in their lives that day. The chemistry between them is electric but more than that the feeling of calm and safety they feel together surpasses anything they have felt before. Leading to a very intense night together without strings or expectations. Although there is a very permanent consequence of their time together!!!!
Although it bypasses Harrison for a while until fate feels duty-bound to intervene. I loved how Harrison immediately took control in order to be there for Raquel, especially as she has no-one else to support her emotionally.
Raquel has lost herself to the Hollywood machine since her parents and brother more or less abandoned her. Leaving her open to being manipulated and taken advantage of, which in turn severely impacted her belief in herself creating a vicious circle of lies and deceit.
Alongside the swoon inducing romance it is Raquel’s character growth which provides the central focus of the plot. The inclusion of the rest of the Billionaire ‘No-Longer’ Bachelors added to the story in more ways than one, lets just say Cap and Thatch live up to their reputation of being crazy *lol*
