When an Oscar-winning movie star meets a department-store photographer…
Movie star Nic Lamoureux appears to have a playboy’s perfect life. But it’s a part he plays, an act designed to conceal a dark secret he carries on his shoulders. His empty days and nights are a meaningless blur until he meets the woman who fulfills all his dreams. She and her son are the family he’s always wanted—if she can forgive a horrible mistake from his past.
A Hollywood dream…
Lauren James, a widowed single mother, earns barely enough money to support herself and her son. When she wins a photography contest and meets Nic, the man who stars in all her fantasies, her dreams, both professional and personal, are on the verge of becoming real. The attraction between Lauren and Nic is instant—and mutual. Their chemistry burns out of control during a photo shoot that could put Lauren on the fast track to a lucrative career.
Becomes a Hollywood nightmare
But an ill-advised kiss makes front-page news, and the lurid headlines threaten everything Nic and Lauren have hoped for. Before they know what’s happening, their relationship is further rocked by an obsessed and cunning stalker who’ll stop at nothing—not even murder—to have Nic to herself. When Nic falls for Lauren, the stalker zeroes in on her as the competition.
And the competition must be eliminated.
The author captured my attention from the first page and kept it till the last (another night of no sleep..lol) I loved this story - Kristine knows how to write a romantic suspense that for sure. Nic or Nic the Lover is a Hollywood sex god who every women wants but they seem to just want the Hollywood version not the real Nic. Lauren's fantasies are all Nic the real Nic and when she wins a contest to photograph him she jumps at the chance, their attraction is mutual and electric so when a stage kiss turns to more either can help themselves. I loved the attraction between these two and rooted for their HEA but as we know it doesn't always come smoothly. A lot of suspense and mystery in this book, a who dun it...wow what a psycho this mystery women is. As their relationship continues so does meeting more of the characters, REMI my favorite from Deadly Addiction (book 2 which I read first so freakin hot) and Tommy (Remi's cousin) Jason (Lauren's son) and the amazing sister Rachel (love her) I hope to read a book about her love one day...and so many more. Awesome, romantic and suspenseful story...5 stars
