Paranormal + Hollywood + cute fallen angel = WIN
When sixteen-year-old Aly King is the grand prizewinner in the "Win a Date with Dakota" contest, it seems like a dream come true. Along with her best friend Desi, and soap star wannabe sister Missy, she flies from Colorado to Hollywood for her celebrity date. Like every other girl in America, Aly knows that Dakota Danvers is a smoking hot movie star. What she doesn't know is that he's also Satan's son.
Luckily for Aly, in the City of Angels there is one actual angel, Jameson Dagon. Granted, Jameson is a fallen angel, but he has one last chance at salvation if he can derail Dakota's evil machinations. Can Jameson protect Aly and Desi from Dakota's damning influence, put up with Missy's prima donna antics--and ignore his smoldering attraction to Aly?
When I read this blurb and saw the words "Satan's son" I knew I had to read the book. I mean how can't that make for an exciting character? To be honest, Dakota (Satan's son) doesn't have the lead male role. It belongs to Jameson, a fallen angel who is pretending to work for Dakota but is really lessening the damage Satan's son is causing on unsuspecting humans. Jameson is one of those characters who you have to love. He shares the POV with Aly, and I found myself really looking forward to his chapters because he had the insight Aly didn't into the world of preternaturals. Oh, and did I mention he's gorgeous? Yeah, that helps.
Aly doesn't want to believe in a world filled with demons of all kinds mingling with humans, but she can't help but trust Jameson. And when Dakota starts throwing the seven deadly sins at Aly, her best friend Desi, and Aly's sister Missy, the girls are in for a rough road. Still Aly is determined to help Jameson stop Dakota. She's one tough girl with a big heart.
There are a lot of books out with demons, angels, etc., but this one combines the very human sins that are so easily associated with Hollywood and making it big. The combination was perfect. I flew through this book. So if you are looking for a quick read with a strong female lead and hotter than hot fallen angel, check out Hollyweird.
1. Who was your big Hollywood crush when you were growing up?
Well, I had a couple different crushes but my biggest was probably Tommy Howell who starred in The Outsider as Ponyboy.
2. Which of the seven deadly sins are you most guilty of?
Probably gluttony. I like my sweets and coffee. Those are my two guilty pleasures.
3. If you had a direct line to heaven and hell, what would your ringtones be for each?
Well, my ringtone for Hell would be ACDC's Highway to Hell. Love that song! And then my ringtone for Heaven would be Earth Angel. It's an old song, but a fun one for this.
