I Liked It!
Hollywood Prince was an unexpected read for me. I didn’t even realize I had it on my Kindle and I just grabbed it and couldn’t put it down!
Amelia is looking for Mr. Right, and after finding many toads, and finding some news out she escapes New York to go get some answers from her brother Cam. She never expected to run in to his ex roommate and best friend Brooklyn, the “Hollywood Prince” and to be so attracted to him, but now that she’s there, she can’t stay away from him. Brooklyn is definitely “Mr. Wrong” he is working on figuring out his life, and is seen as the player in his group of friends. He knows what he wants in life but just hasn’t gotten there yet. He wants Amelia, but knows he can’t have her. It will ruin his relationship with Cam, but he can’t fight the attraction to her and things get HOT between these two.
I loved the back and forth between these two, especially before they decided to give in to what we knew was going to happen. The push and the pull between these two was hot and the buildup to what we knew was going to happen made it even better when they finally gave in. Brooklyn may think he isn’t good enough for Amelia but if you look at how he treats her and the things he does for her, he is more than good enough for her and anyone would be more than lucky to have him as their own. And Amelia? She definitely did a lot of growing in this book! She accepted her past, and went after what she wanted both personally and professionally. She decided to live her life the way she wanted and not let others dictate it anymore. I at first didn’t have much respect for her character but as the book went on and she started sticking up for herself and making more and more decisions for herself I was like GO AMELIA! I loved how much she had grown by the time this book had ended.
This story was beautifully written and I adored Brooklyn and Amelia’s story. It was angsty, like really ANGSTY, and full of steam, laughs and everything in between. I adored all the build up to them finally giving in, and all the sneaking around, and them fighting the feelings they eventually got for one another. The one thing I wasn’t too fond of was the whole preface of the book making you think it was going to be one thing, and then it wasn’t. I will let you figure out what that is, but other than that, it was a solid read and I was pleasantly surprised to find that when I want to one-click that I had already owned it and was able to dive right in!
