Breaking Hollywood by Samantha Towle
In the worst day of her life, damsel in distress Ava meets her Hollywood crush Gabriel and…she breaks his foot!
In her day from hell things get even worse.
Though…don’t they always say that “every cloud has a silver lining”?
Maybe luck is on her side after all…
I’m sorry about the ranting that follows because I’ve enjoyed this author’s work before, unfortunately I couldn’t get passed the 45% mark.
I was loosing brain cells page after page!
First of all:
The general feeling of the story reminded me a lot “Shacking Up” by Helena Hunting.
On top of the plot’s “ridiculousness”, add the lack of sense and originality.
If you didn’t enjoy that book, you’ll probably have bigger issues with this one.
The plot could’ve been fun in it’s own way but, in my opinion, it wasn’t.
When the MCs first meet, Gabriel has a great time exchanging “funny” insults and flirting with Ava, SECONDS after she accidentally runs over his foot with her car.
His foot ends up broken (1° and 2° metatarsals so… SERIOUSLY broken!).
A bit of banter would’ve been great but they keep going at it for so long I actually thought he wasn’t injured at all.
Have you ever experienced a broken foot?
The pain is excruciating!
Number 1: I can’t believe you’re able to give your dick priority while suffering serious pain.
Either you’re faking it or you are a victim of “plot ridiculousness”.
Obviously the second and yes, that’s a thing.
Number 2: You’re supposedly Hollywood royalty…
just because you’re having fun flirting, you forget she could go all psyco on you?
How does it make sense that you choose to invite this stranger into your home instead of an actual professional?
Why would you risk your security, privacy and health in this kind of situation?
Because you want her “under you”? Right. Ok.
Number 3: Then why do you decide to hire her if you “don’t fuck people you do business with”?
How am I supposed to read patiently about you still bitching, at 50% of the book, about that rule of yours and the situation you created?
Number 1: Do you actually have a brain?
You have a whole month to look for a solution about your apartment situation and you choose to become a homeless in Hollywood because you can’t find a place that allows you to keep your pet goat?
Really? You can’t come up with nothing better?
Number 2: Of course your favorite movie star falls straight into your lap (more like under your car).
I’m sure you didn’t put much effort into finding a solution to your problem because that’s exactly what happens to girls like you….they’re always rescued by prince fucking charming.
Number 3: And if that prince turns out to be a manwhore that says he’s proud to be an asshole… you fall in love with him as soon as possible!
Come on…What is this thing???
I call bullshit. Bullshits all over.
In Breaking Hollywood by Samantha Towle the characters do not make sense, the plot does not make sense…
