Evie Jennings doesn't believe in happily ever after—it's been a year since moving home to Los Angeles to gather the pieces of her broken heart after her divorce, but she is only going through the motions. That is, until a chance encounter on her college campus brings about an unexpected turn of events: Evie finds herself face-to-face with the heartthrob whose poster decorated the wall of her teenage bedroom. And he's desperate for her help.
Hollywood sensation Ridge Dashly is facing a career crisis—a bad review threatens his A-list status. Desperate to win back the favor of the media and his fans, Ridge reluctantly agrees to enroll in college, never dreaming he'll meet someone who can see past his fame to his true self.
As their paths continue to cross, Evie's seeming disinterest intrigues Ridge, and the pair form a tentative friendship that slowly grows into something more. But when confronted with the unrelenting paparazzi and the nagging shadows of their pasts, will they follow everyone else's script or fight for their own happy ending?
Can a relationship with a celebrity ever end happily? Probably not.
Does an Latter-Day-Saint woman in her twenties who has been divorced fit-in in any ward?
Evie experienced a very brief marriage, but it broke her heart, and she felt such the "Fool"!
This is a bitter-sweet story of avoiding romance for a second time, of forgiveness, of self-worth, and understanding the Atonement more fully.
This is also, for a child's misconception of how she must choose a profession. It, also, points out the misunderstandings in relationships.
The Book Title and cover are very "fitting".
The characters and scenes were so well portrayed, the reader easily felt he/she was there. The attitudes and emotions of the characters were easily felt by the reader.
The only negative is, the discontent and stigma in the relationship felt slightly dragged out.
I offer a Four and a Half Stars rating.

Tiffany Odekirk believes cooking should take less than thirty minutes, frosting is better than ice cream, and all books should end with happily ever after. After graduating from Brigham Young University with a degree in Marriage, Family, and Human Development, Tiffany completed an internship with LDS Family Services in adoption and then went on to work with homeless women and children in the non-profit sector. Married to a Broadway star, Tiffany’s days are filled with music, and her nights are spent writing the types of characters she hopes her children will one day marry.
