Publisher's Summary

Hayley Carpenter has always dreamed of being a famous screenwriter, but dreams don’t pay bills and LA living isn’t cheap. So when a temp position at a celebrity gossip magazine becomes available, she goes after it.  

Emerson Sterling has been acting since she was little, but a rough patch as a teenager has given her a bad rap in Hollywood. Just when she thinks her dream role can turn around the public’s image of her, a conflict with her co-star and America’s Sweetheart, Rachel Blanche, puts her on the front cover of every magazine, the villain once again.  

Rumors swirl that the starlets’ feud started in the bedroom, and Hayley accidentally overhears a conversation between Emerson and Rachel that could lead to the biggest scoop of her career. Will Hayley follow the story, or will her irresistible attraction to Emerson and the secrets Emerson is desperate to keep buried ruin both their careers...and their chance at love?

great story, great narration!

Great story....great character development and intensely written love scenes. THANK YOU Ms. Riley for "spelling out" love scenes. Some authors leave love scenes to the listeners imagination. This is lesbian romance for crying out loud! We want to be led! On an equally important note....anyone who doesn't adore Lori Prince needs their head examined. She gives amazing depth to characters and is the only narrator I know brave enough to give love-making scenes the passion and intensity needed to make your stomach jump and make you almost drive off the road. This is a great book. Buy it. The end.

Excellent!

I loved Media Darling. Great story. Loved Hayley and Emerson. I hate the fact that the media hounds them. Now I feel justified in not paying any attention to gossip shows or gossip rags. If people stopped supporting gossip writers and photographers. The world would be a better place. Lori Prince does an excellent job with the narration.

Beautiful story, frustrating narration.

The story is beautiful. The narrator lacks good character vocals to make an enjoyable listen.

Loved It

I really loved this book. The romance was sweet and developed in a way that felt real, the sex scenes were hot and really conveyed intimacy between the MCs and it was all narrated masterfully by Lori Prince. I'll definitely be picking up more books by both the author and narrator.

Angsty and perfect

I loved this book. The plot was smooth, with enough turns that it felt fast paced but focused more on character development. The women were well rounded, and I already miss them. Also Lori Prince was a fantastic narrator, her voices were so distinct and expressive.

Star studded Love Story!

Great Story and Narrator brought the characters to Life! The intimacy was born out of respect, friendship and a very special connection. A true love story.
