Movie Star by Pamela DuMond is the second book in the 21st Century Courtesan series. This book was amazing, Its very rare that I like sequels better than the first book, but this book was on fire. I read it in one sitting and couldnt get enough. The characters were so well developed and practically jump off the stage. The story line keeps you on the edge of your seat from page. This is a new author for me, but I cant wait to read more by her, whether this series or another. I give this book and author 5 stars.
Movie Star is the second book in the 21st Century Courtesan series by Pamela DuMond. It is an amazing read and you absolutely need to read the first book as otherwise you will feel a bit lost (like I did as I started with the second book!).
It is a spellbound story where Evie (our main character who we follow through all the books in the series) takes on her second client – a huge movie star Jake Keller who has some heavy hitting secrets. He is lost and shutting down and Evie needs to dig in and create her magic! There are many revelations for Evie in this one and her psycho “fan” is stepping up their game too and also someone from her past keeps turning up… there is a lot going on here and you need to be prepared for an emotional rollercoaster!
I cannot wait to see what waits Evie in the next book of the series! Please keep them coming!

I just finished reading Movie Star (21st Century Courtesan, #2), by Pamela DuMond.
This book is somehow, even better than the first!
I don’t know if it’s because we know Evie and the girls a lot better now or if it’s because I *might* like Jake better than Dylan (sorry Dylan, I still love you though), or a combination of both.
I completely fell for Jake, who is very down to earth, despite being a huge movie star.
He cares for his employees, his friends and of course, Evie.
Evie, will stop at nothing when she is helping people – despite everything that she is going through in her personal life (a creepy fan, her family, her job).
She will do her best to get to the bottom of the deep dark secrets Jake has tried to bury, so he can heal and get back on his superstar track.
I really wasn’t prepared for the last bit of the book – a double whammy got dropped and I can’t wait to see the ending.
Pamela DuMond – you outdid yourself and I’m so grateful that you did!
I really, really liked the first book in this series and I was over the moon but I LOVED this one even more!
I can’t wait to read more of your books!

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.
Movie Star is the 2nd book in the 21st Century Courtesan series by Pamela DuMond. I would definitely recommend reading the first book, Player, before reading this one. It can be read as a stand-alone but the story will make more sense if you have read the first book.
Movie Star continues on from where Player left off and like Player it just stops at the end leaving you screaming WTF!! Why does Pamela DuMond do this to us? In this book Evie is hired to work with top actor Jake Keller who is losing all interest in his work and pulling away from everyone. It’s Evie’s job, as an empath, to find out what is causing Jake to pull away and to heal him.
Breaking down Jake’s walls isn’t easy and when you finally discover why, it is heart-breaking. Pamela DuMond deals with this issue fantastically and with sensitivity.
As with the first book, there are other subplots going on too. We get more of her dealings with Easton Wolff, one of the brothers who her mother ran over when they were teenagers. We also get more of her mother’s story, her mother who has been receiving psychiatric help since this incident years ago.
I really enjoyed this book, more so than the first book in the series. Evie is a wonderful, compelling character and I look forward to see what the author has in store for her in the next 2 books in this series.

MOVIE STAR: 21st Century Courtesan: Book Two by Pamela DuMond
I feel bad for Evie. She feels so much and yet she helps others be better. With so many different emotions coming at her it’s a wonder she functions so well. I don’t like how they use her. I understand why she does it but not the benefit to her. I actually enjoyed this second book more than the first. Jake needs help and Evie is sent in to give him what he needs. This is definitely a new take on Courtesans and what they stood for. The author makes you take a step back and look at the picture from a different view. Overall the story was interesting and enjoyable to read.

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 is the second book in the 21st Courtesan series and it was such a fantastic book to pass the time with. I would recommend reading the 1st book before this one so you can completely understand all that has happened so far. I really enjoyed book 1 and so I was looking forward to this one and was hoping it would live up the the high expectations I had for it… and it did! It was an amazing book and like I predicted, this author is going to be one of my favs! I was pulled into this story from page one and I DEVOURED IT. The main characters are very likeable and the story line keeps you on the edge of your seat waiting to see where you’ll be taken to next. I am excited to see what else this author writes in the future and I would recommend this book to a friend!

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.
