I enjoyed Lead Me Back for a few reasons but I loved it because CD Reiss wrote a Hollywood story with a grandmother as a secondary character that I loved it because CD Reiss wrote a Hollywood story with a grandmother as a secondary character that played an important roll which she named Louise and gave her the nickname Weeze That s probably not going to mean a whole lot to some of ou but it doesn t matter because there s plenty of other reason to oneclick this bookThis is one of those stories that reads like magic At its core it s just a story of two people fumbling thru getting to know each other and trying to make a go of it with a ton of obstacles in their way But that s just the core The reality is that one is a celebrity and the other is one that is averse to said limelight hence the obstacles They both come with baggage they d like to shed and history they d like to move forward from and away from and if they could just look past the trees and see the forest they d see the sensational future they have ahead of each other together as a unitI thoroughly enjoyed the echo the story had to real life events and circumstances while also maintaining the illusion of romance fiction This wasn t a modern take of any tale it was a fictional story embedded in modern day society s circumstances and I for one enjoyed that realism It added credibility to every action and reaction in the story and it allowed me to believe in the story wholeheartedly Plus the story was fun I ve thoroughly enjoyed reading this author s work for many Chasing McCree Chasing McCree years and every time I read one of her books I am reminded of what a powerhouse writer I believe her to be It doesn t matter what project she undertakes whether it be a dark romance or a feel good contemporary romance they always have her signature edge to them that always keeps me on my toes while I read They are always sexy emotional anticipatory and passionate I know I m reading fiction but I feel enriched after I read them every single time Kayla has really reached rock bottom when she leaves New York to start a new life in LA She has little money to her name a huge passion for starting her own clothing line and a closed down theatre as a roof over her head On the day she arrives she receives a wrong number phone call on the phone she just had connected and not wanting to let an old lady down she ends up delivering roses to a complete stranger This is how she meets Justin Beckett ex boyband and movie star Grandson of the wrong number callerIt turns out Justin has recently been through a publicity nightmare all brought upon himself he has parted ways from his band alcohol drugs women and his old phone number After everything blew up his people decided that cutting ties with anyone from his old life would be best However now that he knows someone has a lifeline to his old band he decides having Kayla around could be beneficial Having her working on his latest movie set gives her a job and him access to any potential calls Thus begins a strange friendship or sorts between Justin and Kaylacakes Kayla s ultimate goal is to get backing for her portfolio so she can launch her own clothing line Working for Justin cements her desire to work for herself When an opportunity comes up to present her ideas to a well known and lucrative backer she is disappointed to discover that whoou know doesn t always bring the best results It is also a reminder of why she left New York and makes her realise that running away from things doesn t mean the problem will go awayAs her friendship with Justin moves into something intimate and meaningful she decides that dealing with her past is the only way to move forward However Justin s reaction to this decision was not what she expected it to be It turns out that his loyalty had conditions and she will not be with someone who can t be unconditional with her Justin has a lot of grovelling to do if he wants this plot to end in a happy ever afterThis is a fun romance set among the Hollywood hills and the world of movies I m usually a huge CD Reiss fan but romance set among the Hollywood hills and the world of movies I m usually a huge CD Reiss fan but one didn t wow me like her others I liked Kayla s character but not Justin s He just seemed like a douche through most of the book and I didn t feel their connection until almost the end emotional or physical Also some parts of the story were a little difficult to follow because conversa.
