She’s his fantasy leading lady…if he can convince her love can be their reality.

Women in Hollywood, Book 2

When aspiring screenwriter Mona Johnson landed a job as assistant to one of Hollywood’s most sought-after movie producers, she planned to use the experience to build her career. She never expected her match made in online-dating heaven to be her boss.

Romance with Terrance Beckham is out of the question. She knows his history. He’s not the commitment type.

His quest to find real love in real time coming up empty, Terrance goes incognito in the virtual world to take his famous name and large bank account out of the equation. Then he discovers the online chat room handle of Ms. Perfect is attached to the woman who brings him coffee.

Disclosing his identity will have to be handled delicately if they’re to face their mutual attraction without preconceived notions. But before they can build a bridge to happiness, they’ll have to overcome obstacles—some labeled “ex”, and others labeled “mom”—that could drive a permanent wedge between them.

Mona Johnson is Terrance’s executive assistant with hopes of becoming a screenwriter. Movie producer Terrance Beckham has had his share of women but now he has his eyes set on one woman. The question is will she be open to trusting him to take their relationship to another level?

I enjoyed reading this novel more so than I thought I would. The chemistry between Mona and Terrance felt real and refreshing. Their ups and downs were kind of tiresome, though. Some of the misunderstandings could have been avoided by more communication and less assuming. Terrence is displayed as a dream man. He is hard working, nice dresser and once he found the woman he wanted he was committed. The attraction between Mona and Terrance made the book enjoyable seeing how they compliments each other.

The twist with Mona’s ex-fiance coming back into the picture made for an interesting story. Mona was too nice and understanding of Garrett’s explanation. I wanted her to question him to see why he took what his mother said and stopped pursuing Mona back then and why now all of a sudden he has it in his mind that they can pick up where they left off.

Garrett added dramatic climax to the story. Terrence’s mom Sara added even more excitement to the book. She was a character that wasn’t to kind to any woman trying to get close to her son. I am glad her fiance has a strong male character to help handle her meddling in Terrance’s affairs.

I enjoyed this novel. The author has a easy to read and follow writing style. The plot was entertaining and kept my interest.

Secret Liaisons is an enjoyable read that is more than your typical romance.
