    Aleyna is trying to make her way into the world of film and works as an extra whenever she can. Carson is an up-and-coming actor, who is an all-around great guy. The characters and their friends are realistic and fun, which makes them relatable. The story is told in first person, which never fails to draw me in as an honorary best friend to the main character.

As Aleyna works on set, the reader is given a bird's eye view to the word of acting, which is very interesting, as well as a best friend's vantage point to a budding and potentially heart-stopping romance, which is ooh-la-la. The natural ebb and flow is engaging and had me gripped from the chance encounter in the smoothie shop. Why only 4 stars? I honestly wanted more! I would have loved to see this in a full-length novel with more development and drawn out situations because I liked it that much. If you need a quick romance fix, this is a story to try!

    WHAT IT'S ABOUT Aleyna McKenzie has always dreamed of making it big as an actress. Lately, it seems like her goal has become unreachable. Her auditions haven’t gone well, money is running dry, and her car is on the brink of breaking down. When she is cast as a stand-in on the network tv show Devastation, she’s fed up with the film set guys hitting on her.

Her auditions haven’t gone well, money is running dry, and her car is on the brink of breaking down. When she is cast as a stand-in on the network tv show Devastation, she’s fed up with the film set guys hitting on her. Then Carson Peters, a well-known player in the world of Hollywood hotties and the male lead of the show, hits on her, too. But despite her attraction to him, she rejects him. When Carson discovers her with a broken-down car, he offers to give her rides to the film set. Before long, they are spending more time together, and he begins asking her out. But is Aleyna willing to risk her heart for a guy with a reputation as a player? When it seems that all hope is lost, will Carson’s faith in her ability to succeed as an actress be enough to give her the drive to reach her dreams? MY TAKE This is a fun, fast read. Aleyna is a sympathetic female lead and Carson is yummy. It's a novella so things move pretty quickly, but it does span nearly a year, which helps make it believable. It's a story about believing in yourself and following your dreams. 4 1/2 stars

    I read this a while ago, but forgot to post my review. Since I couldn't recall the details, I decided to just read it again. It is a wonderful story filled with career struggles, friendship and love. It is about acting, smoothies, gluten-free food and jogging. With some nice characters and a good story-line. I loved it - and didn't mind reading it twice in the same year! I received a copy and chose to review it. I read this a while ago, but forgot to post my review.

    One of the reasons I felt it easy to fantasize about stepping into the shoes of this book’s protagonist, Aleyna McKenzie, is that as a young child I dreamt of going into acting and becoming a star; but I unfortunately didn’t have any acting abilities since I never got selected to be a school play, no matter how small the part. Aleyna is an aspiring actress, or at least she wants to be; but like me, she couldn’t make it through any of her auditions, and she’s becoming increasingly frustrated. Frus One of the reasons I felt it easy to fantasize about stepping into the shoes of this book’s protagonist, Aleyna McKenzie, is that as a young child I dreamt of going into acting and becoming a star; but I unfortunately didn’t have any acting abilities since I never got selected to be a school play, no matter how small the part. Aleyna is an aspiring actress, or at least she wants to be; but like me, she couldn’t make it through any of her auditions, and she’s becoming increasingly frustrated. Frustration can truly take a toll on someone’s existence; and she’s no exception, especially when she’s running out of funds, and she’s got a car that’s a ROLLS CAN HARDLY [ROLLS down one hill and CAN HARDLY get up the next.] I found it interesting that the tv show she’s eventually had been able to get casted in, as an understudy for is called Devastation. It wasn’t surprising that as a young, single beautiful woman, Aleyna wouldn’t be hit upon by very guy on the set; which she was but rejected all of their advances. And even though his magnetism had been quite appealing, she also rejected the advances made by the show’s star and playboy, Carson Peters. Kismet wasn’t about to let these lonely individuals stay apart, for one day it caused Aleyna’s clunker of a car breaks down, and Carson comes to her aid by offering to drive her to the set and home on a daily basis. Carson’s simple action seemed to have broken the ice of Aleyna’s heart, as she became willing to have him take her out. But eventually this causes her to become confronted by a dilemma many women have to face every day of whether or not to give her heart away to reputed playboy, would you? While this might be a pressing issue for Aleyna, the bigger question is whether her belief in herself will allow her to fulfill her dream of becoming a star actress? Will there be the HEA for this pair? I love reading novellas, and this endeavor by the book’s author, Cindy Ray Hale, is the reason why. The storyline cuts to the chase, by eliminating all the unnecessary fluff which is prevalent in some full-length novels; which is why I’ve given this book 5 STARS. I obtained a MOBI.file copy of this book from the InstaFreebie website and the above has been my honest opinion.

    I enjoyed this short romance, which is set within the movie business, and focuses on the roles and relationships of two brothers. Aleyna is an aspiring actress, who can’t get a big break, but successfully auditions for a bit part on a TV show; a bit of luck ensures her regular work with the show; leading her to form a friendship with the lead actor Carson, but he is a player, and she lacks trust, which has a negative impact on their relationship. This story is about trust, love and empowerment; I enjoyed this short romance, which is set within the movie business, and focuses on the roles and relationships of two brothers.

    Such an endearing story. A sweet endearing story about a woman trying to make it as an actress and her journey which leads her away and back to her first love of acting. It was very interesting seeing how actors must make it in the world, starting small and hoping for "the big break." And having to decide how far to push it until you need to do something else. Starting a romance amongst all this is crazy, but who can control falling in love. Heartbreak leads to a better break which in turn leads Such an endearing story.

    A short, sweet book. It was fascinating to read about the audition process and what it's like working on the set of a show as an extra and as a stand in. Carson said he was no good for Aleyna , but all I saw was consideration and care for her...He went out of his way to accommodate her diet restrictions, he drove her around when her car broke down, he paid for the repairs on that car, and he encouraged and supported her in her career. Who wouldn't want to be with a guy like that? A short, sweet book. It was fascinating to read about the audition process and what it's like working on the set of a show as an extra and as a stand in.

    This was a great story. The plot flowed and there were no strings left loose. The writing style was intriguing and kept my attention throughout. The characters were a lot of fun to read about. They had great personalities and it was exciting seeing their story develop.

    Great book! I loved it! The only thing was that at one point in the book it abruptly skips to one year later. I would have liked to learn more about what happened during the year that gets skipped over and how the main character got along with her acting career.

    She wanted to become an actress. She wrote plays when she was 20 years old. She could do this. Her drive and energy were both good. Her pocketbook, not so good. She did like eating healthy too. In fact, she even had her making smoothies recorded. But she couldn’t get farther than extras for shows
