Cole Masten. Abandoned by his superstar wife, Hollywood’s Perfect Husband is now Hollywood’s Sexiest Bachelor: partying hard and screwing even harder. Watch out Los Angeles, there's a new bad boy in town.

Summer Jenkins. That’s me, a small town girl stuck in Quincy, Georgia. I cook some mean chicken and dumplins, can bluff a grown man out of his savings in poker, and was voted Most Friendly my senior year.

We were from different worlds. Our lives shouldn’t have collided. But then Cole Masten read a book about my small town. And six months later, his jet landed on our dusty airstrip, and he brought Hollywood with him.

From the start, I knew he was trouble. For our town. And for me.

Sometimes, opposites just aren’t meant to attract.


I loved this book. It was full of great characters (including a rooster), some hilarious situations, and stubbornness. I love when stubborn characters butt heads, and Cole and Summer definitely fit that bill.

Summer is a true southerner. She knows all the southern small town rules and niceties that a person must follow if they want to be part of polite society, but she's not quite welcome still. The reason is amazing. It's one of the best revenge stories ever, but it turned most of the residents against her. Yet Summer is the one that finds herself the center of attention again when Cole demands that she plays the leading lady in the film his is not only starring in, but directing.

There is tons of humor and watching as these two make the transition from barely tolerating each other, through friendship, and on to something bigger had me smiling the entire time. The antics and situations they found themselves in as they tried to one-up each other were amazing - and the rooster - the rooster stole the show a few times.

This is a light-hearted fun romance. I laughed out loud and couldn't stop grinning the whole time.
