Martin has spent the last ten years in the spotlight, becoming
Hollywood’s It Girl. On the surface her life looks perfect, but in
reality she’s faltering. And the last person she expects to provide any
relief is her best friend’s brother, the man who’s been tying her in
knots for months.
Alexander Richards has paid the price for every single mistake he’s
made. He makes no excuses for what he’s done, and wants nothing more
than to find some peace. But that may be impossible since he has to help
the woman who’s been driving him crazy since he moved to California.
Thrown together in the middle of nowhere, there’s no way to deny the
attraction that burns within them. But how can they build a future if
they can’t address their own insecurities? And what happens when secrets
and lies from the past threaten to pull them apart?
Miss Hollywood is the third and final installment of the Misses series and I felt like it was the perfect ending for the book series. I felt that this story shed some more light on the secondary characters that were in the other two books and it answered a lot of questions that I previously had.
Clare is known as Hollywood It girl that was always the more quiet of the three misses. I enjoyed being able to find out more stuff about her and realized there was more to her then just being Hollywood’s it girl. She was still trying to get over the betrayal that she experienced at the end of the last book in the series. I really enjoyed her character.
Alex was a character I wanted to know more about since being introduced to the character in the first book. Alex is loving and caring character that would do anything for his sister and nephew. It is obvious within the first book how much he loved his sister and it is shown even more within Miss Hollywood. I absolutely adored Alex and cheered for him so many times within the book.
Miss Hollywood is about Clare is currently experience problems in her life that involve her family. These problems see her going back home and needing help from someone. This person is Alex who has suffered is far share of family problems. The two of them are stuck in Care’s hometown and both of them are trying to fight the attraction they feel for each other.
Marie Garner has written a really romantic and sweet series which I really enjoyed reading about. I found that this was the perfect ending for the three characters. I found that I really enjoyed the secondary characters throughout the series and hope that Marie Garner will write a story about Raquels sister Ainsely because I’m really interested to find out if she will get with Spencer or not. If anyone is looking for a sweet romantic read wit plenty of steamy and hot moments then I highly recommend.

Not when he’d been getting bolder and she’d been responding in kind. It
started with a look, and then a couple of random touches, but they had
been moving in this direction for the last couple months. They’d danced
around each other, and even though he’d never touch her, it didn’t mean
he couldn’t have a taste. Just one taste. Baiting. Testing. Reeling her
in like he used to hook bass in South Carolina. “When are you going to
get off your high horse and come mingle with this mortal?”
she puckered her lips before moving out of his grasp. “As much as I’d
love to, this princess has already kissed enough toads to last her two
lifetimes. Besides, you’re all about the chase and I’m not interested in
the game.” His mouth watered at the thought of actually giving chase
with Clare as his prize. He knew a little of the toads she was referring
to, but he was nothing like Jason. He may have done time, yes, but he
wasn’t an asshole. One bad decision at the end of a string of bad
decisions he vowed never to make again.
“You know, we aren’t all
like that douchebag. Most guys actually respect women. And when are you
going to give me a chance? You’ve been hinting at it for months.” Her
lips quirked at the mention of Jason being a douchebag but she moved
closer when he mentioned their flirtation. He hooked his fingers into
her belt loops, pulling her closer and rubbing his nose against hers.
She closed her eyes, inhaling deeply, before shaking her head and took a
She ran her finger down his chest. “I’m not painting
men with broad strokes. This is about me. Some girls can’t risk it all
for a guy. And we aren’t doing this. Much as you or I may want to.”
Her nose was stuck in a book since she was little, and she spent years writing down all the crazy ideas floating in her head. She has published the first two books in her trilogy, The Misses Trilogy, with Miss Hollywood slated for release in Fall 2016. Her writing explores the complexities of relationships, something she’s all too familiar with as part of a large, crazy family.
When she’s not locked in her writing cave she can be found cheering on the Washington Redskins or watching The Walking Dead, and thinks there’s nothing sweeter than a cold Diet Coke.
