Movie Star (21st Century Courtesan) by Pamela Dumond is a five star novel. As soon as I started reading this book, it took me back to the first book and immersed me right back into the story of Evie. After reading the first book, I knew I needed to finish this series and could not hardly wait to read more. I read this book in an evening, after working a full day. But what a way to end a long day! This book is steamy, sexy, and intriguing all at the same time. Evie is a contractor where she goes and helps successful struggling men to get their groove back. She has a crazy knack for being able to feel people’s pain or discomfort and then being able to insert herself into their lives so that she can help them work through the pain. When her stalker reappears in her life, it starts to make things go blurry but she tries her best to put it to the side so she can help her newest client Jake.
I can’t say enough about this series! It’s so captivating and so brilliant! Move Star is Book 2 in the 21st Century Courtesan series by Pamela DuMond. Evelyn “Evie” is an escort that makes six figures, not because she beds every man but because she has a special gift. Evie is Empathetic. She can feel other people’s emotions and she has been able to get to the root of men’s problems. In this book, she is on to a new client. This new client is none other than super famous movie star Jake Keller. Jake hasn’t been the same for some reason and it’s her job to figure it out and “fix” him. However, there is still someone in the shadows that continues to send her “fan” mail. There is no clue as to who this person is but that person definitely knows who she is. Not only that there is still the person that she loves the most, but they are both so busy and he won’t buckle down and ask for her hand in marriage. Wait, let’s not forget one of the men that she keeps coming across that hates her to pieces. This book is so complex and yet so intriguing at the same time. I can’t help but read these books in the matter of hours rather than days and not being able to breathe until the last page is read. I adore this series and cannot wait to read the next one. I NEED to know what happens!

Movie Star (21st Century Courtesan, #2) by Pamela DuMond was an engaging, emotional read, that hooks you and pulls you into the story.
Not my first read from this author or in this series. This is a continuation series so I highly suggest reading the first book. It will give you much needed background info and character backstories.
I very much enjoyed the first book, and this one was equally as enjoyable. They are fast reads so if you haven’t read that first book, you’ll get through it in no time so you can get your hands on this wonder. A detailed drama thriller, you are taken on a heart pounding ride, one that takes you deep into Evie’s emotional world. The super fan is more aggressive, more of her past is revealed, as twists and turns takes the story to a whole other level.
Overall this book was the perfect addition, and it’s that perfect mix of dark, light and mystery. So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that you will get hooked.

Movie Star (21st Century Courtesan Book 2) by Pamela DuMond is another exciting book in this great series. You must read the others before reading this one as this one takes off where the last one ended. It is a bit of an emotional read, full intrigue and mystery, pain and suffering and hot, sexy men who need to find the one thing that has stopped them from moving forward. It is well written and the great characters are well developed, complex and multi layered. I read this book in one sitting, from start to finish, as I was enthralled, there is so much going on in this book and there was never a time that I wanted to put it down.
Evie, is beautiful and worth every bit that she is paid. She is the one woman who can get to the root of the problem, where so many others fail and helps men heal but she is still wrapped in the pain of her past and is becoming more conscious of what people see her as. Now the pieces of her life are starting to come out and she sees her mother in a different light. It also seems she can not hide from her stalker and her past.
I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book in the series and see what happens next.

5 +++ Stars
Really?! Omg that ending…not a mind altering cliff hanger but enough of an unfinished story to have me wanting to pull my hair out!! This is my second book by this author with Book 1 Player being my first and I loved Player but this one..Holy Buckets was so completely awesome I don’t even have the words.
Many truths came out in this part but not enough to have it all figured out and my heart is just broke with some of the revealed secrets that came out in this one. I can’t even begin to predict where this author is going to take the rest of this story, she is handling it beautifully and Im not going to go into anything that may ruin the reading of both books by others.
I have fallen head over heels for this author’s writing, its flawless in my opinion and there is no added content throughout that would normally make a person skim through…and so easy to read and before you know it your done and sitting there wanting to throw something.
I loved it and highly recommend you start with book 1, I can’t imagine starting with this one I really and truly don’t think it would work.
I completely loved this book!!

Movie Star was a great 5 star read and book two in the 21st Century Courtesan series.
Evie is empathic, men hire her to help them heal. She is heading to LA to help Jake Keller, a very hot troubled movie star. The night before she leaves she discovers her house has been broken into. And she has gotten another letter. Has her stalker returned?
Healing broken men is filthy, grueling work, which is why it’s ironic that on the outside I look immaculate.
Jake has some secrets that someone wants to keep buried. Will Evie be able to help Jake or will his secret stay buried?
As they spend time together Evie and Jake get close, and lets just say they had some very steamy scenes. There is also an unexpected twist, someone that Evie hadn’t seen in a couple of years shows up.
Be prepared for so much more in this story. I love Evie, she had me lol at times with things she would say or think. The secondary characters were great. Once I started I couldn’t put it down, I finished it pretty quickly. Pamela DuMond will have your head spinning with the things going on. I suggest reading book one first. I look forward to reading more in this series.
I could not get my hands on MOVIE STAR fast enough! I didn’t even need the tease of the gorgeous cover that graces it, or the sultry blurb that promises seduction, intrigue and pleasures of the flesh to be told, I was hooked merely with Evie and her story carrying on from the very first book, The Player. Here is where I will highly recommend that you read these books in order so you can get the full experience and understanding of what is going on here. I have fallen in love with Evie’s character so much and really enjoyed following her on this journey so far. MOVIE STAR was just another wonderful addition to that where we got to see her mature into her womanhood more.
In MOVIE STAR Jake Keller is Evie’s special client. He has shut down and things around him are suffering, major things. Evie is determined to help him but he isn’t going to go down without a bit of a struggle. Will she be able to break through to him and help him? Then there is the side mystery storyline of the mystery fan. There is not a lot divulged just yet here but still enough to keep me on the edge of my seat wondering what next? And but who?? I can’t wait to see what will take Evie’s life by storm next! Thanks for the fantastic read Ms. DuMond!
Movie Star 21st Century Courtesan Book 2 by Pamela DuMond
This is the second book in this series that I have read and I wasn’t disappointed. I found the authors style to be quite refreshing and really brings the story to life. The whole concept of the books is really quite unique. I really enjoyed how the author brings a little intrigue into the books with a slight sinister twist. I couldn’t put the book down.
This book helps to get a bit more into Evie’s past and how she starts to fit all the pieces together. I love how she is able to help people and how sort of unique her career choice is. The way that she helps Jake as well as some of her other clients is just so unique. I like how the author shows a different side of escorts. I found that the author has quite a unique story line and character set. The series is really addicting and I really look forward to reading more from this author and this series as I am excited to see what will happen next.
MOVIE STAR (21st Century Courtesan Book 2)
By: Pamela DuMond
5 out of 5 stars
The story MOVIE STAR (21st Century Courtesan Book 2) by Pamela DuMond is a new adult/romance book. It is a story that hooked me in from the very beginning and didn’t let me go until the end. It is a book that has steamy/seductive scenes. There are also moments when I wondered what was going to happen next. The story kept me turning pages. One of the main characters is a 21st-century Courtesan. She is a woman who is beautiful, strong, and independent. She is someone who helps others. She is a character whose life is intriguing and complicated. Her current assignment is Jake Keller, a movie start that could be called broken. Will she be able to find out the truth behind why Jake has shut down? Read this story to find out. This book had my emotions going up and down the entire time I read it. I found Jake to be a character that could be described as kind, good-hearted, with a heavy burden. He is a character that I grew to care about and wished for him to be happy. There are additional characters that are included some of which I enjoyed reading about and others I had to wonder as to their agenda and motives. There is emotional and intense dialogue. The story flows smoothly and I found it a joy to read. This is the second book in a series and I loved it just as much as the first one. I am looking forward to reading the next story.
This series has taken me by surprise. From the synopsis pieces immediately resonated. But still I was unsure if I would connect to the story. My doubts were immediately erased as soon as I read the first page. Dumond has created a world in this series, and maintained in this second installment, whereby the reader immediately dives headfirst into the plot and connects unabashedly to our main character. Masterfully written, this book stands on its own well but is best appreciated to the full when read as part of the series and in series order. Dumond has a unique voice and writing style that is easily followed but not lacking in rich flavor. Wonderfully done. I cannot wait to immerse myself in these pages again.
