Closed Set by Julia Harlow
4 out of 4 stars
This is the second book that I have read by Ms. Harlow and while I loved the first book that I have read by her this book kind of fell short with the way the story seemed to jump around a little too much and I didn’t think it was realistic in some aspects. But the story line was well thought out.
Cassandra Carlson is a professional dancer, working on her five-year plan. She moved to Los Angeles to work at her best friend’s Hollywood dance studio. She decides she can put up with the glitterati for the time being until she saves enough to open her own studio back home in Cincinnati.
Christopher Edwards, a soon-to-be A-list British actor, comes to her for dance lessons for his new film, the attraction is instantaneous and intense. They are both young, available and strikingly beautiful, but while she finds Hollywood garish and superficial, he’s on the brink of realizing his life’s ambition with no inclination for a serious relationship.
Just when they can’t deny the attraction for each other, a jealous actress targets Cassandra in an insidious scheme, and a powerful studio head poses a formidable threat to them both.
Cassandra puts herself in harms-way in order to protect Christopher, but will she lose him in the process?
Are they too young for a relationship? Can they over-come the obstacles in Hollywood? Will they get a happily ever after? Can they move forward when their paths are supposed to go separate ways?
You will have read this story to find out the answers to my questions…
