Short and steamy, this novella features the same writing quality we’ve come to know and love from Avery Flynn, but not the character development. It’s light and sexy with obvious chemistry between the characters and a distinct insta-love vibe; a quick and fun read that doesn’t delve too deep. I’ve definitely got my issues with it (more on that later), but it will satisfy your craving for a steamy read.
The story follows Aubrey, a former wild child who has been living the small town life and caring for her family recently. When she goes on a singles cruise with some friends, she meets a guy… only to realize that he is the last person she should fall for. A movie star known for his pinchable butt (a la Chris Evans), Carter is trying to go unnoticed while on vacation in order to secure a role. Unfortunately for him, Aubrey runs an Insta account that’s dedicated to tracking his sightings and more. As the two get up to trouble in and out of the bedroom, things get more complicated as feelings get involved.
I usually enjoy Flynn’s work but the novella format didn’t do this any favors. The focus is much more on lust than love, with more steamy scenes than deep conversations. If you’re okay with insta-love, it might work better for you, because the chemistry is there. I personally couldn’t buy into the depth of their feelings given the number of non-sexual interactions. I was also kind of confused as to how this ties into the series – Aubrey’s friends are a VERY minor part of the novella, so the connection between the books is almost non-existent. That being said, it’s not a bad way to spend a few hours, and is easily read in one sitting. I wish it had more substance, but it’s still a light and fun read. I received an ARC via Social Butterfly PR and am voluntarily leaving a review of this sexy novella.
I never dreamed I’d meet my celebrity crush while stealing every single pair of my best friend’s pants.
Trust me, my life is not that wild. In fact, the most excitement I usually get is running my fan-favorite Insta thirst account featuring butt-tastic pics of Hollywood superhero Carter Hayes. So, imagine my shock when, in the middle of the cruise ship hallway, I realize the guy whose shirt I’m stuffing slacks inside of is Carter disguised as a tourist. How I manage not to faint dead away, I’ve got no clue.
When word leaks that Carter might be on board, he asks me to help him maintain his cover. There’s no way I’m gonna say no to that. I just don’t share that I’m the anonymous woman behind the fan account that reported sighting him onboard. No biggie. Right?
However, when things between us go from friendly to hot to OMG-I-can’t-keep-my-clothes-on-around-him, all I can do is hope he never discovers my secret. You see, somewhere along the way, Carter went from an untouchable movie star to the man I’m falling for.

About Avery Flynn
USA Today bestselling romance author Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.
She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staff knew her by name.
Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.
