Review: One Wild Ride by A.L. Jackson & Rebecca Shea (Hollywood Chronicles #2)


Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the authors.

Eleanor Ward knows how the world works--well, at least the world that she's grown up in, aka Hollywood. With her father being one of the most in-demand directors around, Elle is wary about anyone trying to get too close. She's already learned that lesson the hard way, no thanks to an ambitious ex who used her in order to get his foot in the proverbial door with her dad. But there's no harm in looking, right? How could anyone not want to look at all that hotness coming from the gorgeous guy in his undies on display on a huge billboard ad? Unfortunately, all that ogling led to Elle backing her BMW into a man on a motorcycle. The man with the broken leg? Well, it just happened to be none other than the hottie on the billboard--Kassius Cowen. But while Elle becomes flustered and panicky, Kas is flirty even if he's in pain. When the time comes for him to head home from the hospital, it's not his home he goes to--it's Elle's. Taking care of Kas isn't all that difficult, but soon, Elle begins to care about him. But even as their feelings for one another grow, does Elle trust Kas enough to break her rule about not dating actors?

One Wild Ride was one heck of a fun read! Elle and Kas had that much needed chemistry between main characters down pat and A.L. Jackson and Rebecca Shea proved that their writing partnership was no one-trick pony. This second book in their Hollywood Chronicles series had the same kind of lighthearted feel that the first one had but both books are distinct enough to not just stand out from each other but also to stand alone (although I'm recommending you check them both out!). I loved that Kas was this guy who went after what he wanted, and yeah, he may have been sneaky about spending as much time as he could with the girl he was smitten with, but some risks are worth it. Elle's wariness was understandable, and with her past, that wariness was definitely warranted. Of course, the heart wants what it wants, but these two had to go through a number of hoops to get to that happily-ever-after of theirs, which made for an entertaining read. I'm not sure if this is the last book in the series, but I hope it won't be the last time these authors write something together. One Wild Ride garners 4.5 stars. ♥
