The Red Carpet Series by Z.N. Willett Reviews

Title: The Trouble with Marrying a Movie Star
Series: Red Carpet #2
Author: Z.N. Willett
Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance

Her most desired fantasies were finally being fulfilled, but at what cost?

Alexandria Moore's dreams have come true since she met actor Andrew Hughes. 

Yet, when it’s revealed that he is her muse, will it cause them to grow closer, or shatter the dream into a figment of her imagination?

Will her reality survive the fantasy she has created?

They have already overcome distance, adversity, jealousy and misunderstandings. Can their relationship survive public scrutiny, old flames, insecurities and now deception?

Flashes of bright lights so blinding, that when you close your eyes, all you see is bursts of light under your lids. Your ears begin to ring, as they try to decipher the loud voices that are screaming and yelling at you, until everything becomes a mumbled blur.

Even though I could feel Andrew's hand as he pulled me through the crowd of paparazzi, at moments, I felt enclosed and alone. I felt somewhat alarmed by the frenzy of reporters that we had to walk past as we hurried to the ticket counter. I struggled to look up as camera flashes continued to assault my senses. This is what it feels like to have your picture taken without your consent—not knowing where it was going, or what they would do with it. Usually, it is a family member or friend on the other side of the lens. They capture a place, or time in your life that means something. You can always veto a lousy photo if you want, or laugh at the ones that have been taken. But this felt…wrong.

As we approached the counter, there was a woman in a red jacket that instantly greeted us. "I called security, Mr. Hughes." Andrew nodded, and greeted her with a handshake.

"Thank you. My Security Director wanted to leave someone with us, but I insisted that we would be fine."

Andrew looked at me apologetically. "My girlfriend has caused quite a stir," Andrew said, squeezing my hand tightly as he tried to make light of the situation.

She nodded in understanding. "Let’s get you two checked in, and I will escort you to the plane." She signaled to someone behind us. "It looks as if security has arrived."

I turned and saw four large men in uniform. One stood directly behind us while the other three directed the paparazzi to stay back.

Andrew asked for my passport and the agent checked us in. You could hear the shutters of the cameras capturing this mundane act. I turned my head, getting a better look at the men. When we had first stepped out of the taxi, I had shielded my eyes from the blinding lights as Andrew stressed to keep my head down. "Don't look at them, say nothing!" he shouted as he guided me along.

My anxiety grew at that thought, and suddenly, I felt light-headed. "Andrew…"

He turned his head, seeing my distress, and came to me immediately. "Andria, what is it?"

His eyes showed so much concern. Sadly, I wanted this…well, not this per se, but I had pushed for Andrew and me to be a real couple. Yet, I started to wonder if I might have bitten off more than I could chew.

I have fallen in love with the series.  You cannot help but feel that these two characters are made for each other.  And we get to continue their story with the second book in the series.  And I have to say that ZN Willett has done it again.

In this book Andrew and Andria are more involved with their relationship.  The heat is pilling on.  Andrew is still the sweet, swoon-worthy, and Hot actor.  While Andria is living her dreams and beginning her book tour.  Their hectic schedules keep them apart as they try to navigate through the hassles of stardom and just life.  I feel that Andria has become more outspoken then she was in the first and has really started to see her become the women we all knew was there.  I guess she has to be with the being on the arm of Heart Throb Andrew as well as taking him off the market.  But you just cannot help but fall in love with this couple.  

 Will they be able to stand the pressure of being a part due to their dreams?  Will they find stable ground and come out stronger for it?  Or will it all be too much?  Read and see.  I loved this story and looking forward to the next chapter in their lives.  As well as waiting to see what author ZN Willett has up her sleeve. 

Title: The Trouble with Dating a Movie Star Series:

 Red Carpet  #1

Author: Z.N. Willett

Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance

A.P. Moore's provocative romance throws her onto the Best Sellers list, but Alexandria’s life was far from the steamy pages of her romance. 

Andrew Hughes, the most desired man in Hollywood was at the height of his career. Nothing could be better, until a chance meeting with Alexandria Moore that went horribly wrong. The man who had everything soon realized what Hollywood couldn't give him. 

Or could it? 

An invitation that leads to a premier, offers a second chance, and a Hollywood romance straight out of the pages of a magazine. Yet, this story will not be filled with butterfly kisses and midnight strolls, but with tangled webs filled with lust, desire, jealousy and deceit. 

It is Hollywood after all. 

Andrew Hughes is the most sought after man in Hollywood.  Every woman wants him, every man wants to be him, he is at the high of his career, and he is down to earth.  Life is looking good for Andrew. Andria is just your everyday girl turned author with a best seller.  She has also had a crush on Andrew since high school, what girl would not.  She even has the main character in her romance novel based off of him.  But never in her wildest dreams did she think that she would actually meet him. 

A chance meeting between them at a bar in Georgetown that is disastrous, you would think that was the end.  Or will an invitation to a movie premier be just the second chance they needed.  But it’s not always smooth road for these two.  You have Andrews’s ex-girlfriend who doesn’t take “It’s Over” as an answer, the paparazzi chasing, his manager that loves Andria, but not to date him, Andria cannot tell Andrew that her book is about him, a book tour, and just life in the spotlight.  When you are dating the hottest guy in Hollywood, you will never have a privet moment again.  Will they be able to weather the storm of stardom?  Will they come out stronger or fall apart?  Can they navigate this life and is it worth it?

This is such a wonderful story and the characters you cannot help to fall in love with.  They have problems just like everyone else, even though they have to deal with the spotlight of it.  The pace of the story is good without any area that just seem to drag but you do not feel like it’s rushed either.  I cannot wait for the next book in the series and see what pops up in the lives of these characters.
