Every girl has a secret (or two)…
On the verge of losing the Malibu home she inherited from her great-aunt, Addi Dekker is completely failing to prove to her family she can make it as a writer. Not exactly how a girl proves her independence. If she doesn’t want to give up her dream and go back to the soul-sucking job she just left, Addi has to swallow her dislike of Hollywood and rent the house out to the sexy-as-hell film producer.
And maybe (shhhh!) save money by secretly living there, too.
Roque Gallagher is pouring his heart and savings into his first independent film to make the industry acknowledge him for his talent and not just his family name. Addi’s home is perfect for the shoot, but she’s far too tempting. He’s never been able to handle work and a relationship, and this is the film of a lifetime. Between a shrinking budget and his director quitting, the last thing he needs is a sexy-as-sin tease like Addi. And he has a feeling there’s something she’s hiding…
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
4 out of 5 stars
Malibu Secrets, the second book in MK Meredith's Malibu Sights series was a nice and fresh romantic read. The characters for the most part were likable and kept you interested in their story. Despite his ridiculous name, I really loved Roque although some of the things he did in the book left me shaking my head. And as for Addi, she was a pretty feisty character and I loved how determined she was to keep her aunt's house at all costs. But that said, it really annoyed me that she lied to Roque. I won't go into it since it's a big part of the plot and I don't want to spoil it for anyone but let's just say had she not realized how horrible her actions were on her own and went out of her way to make it right, I might have ended up hating her, but thankfully she redeemed herself in the end. As well as Roque.
Overall, I really enjoyed this one. The book was steamy, humorous and a smidge dramatic and the plot really stood out to me making it one refreshing and satisfying read.
