Hollywood Homecoming Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway


Welcome to my stop on the Hollywood Homecoming blog tour hosted by YA Bound Book Tours.  Click HERE to see the full blog tour schedule!

Hollywood Homecoming (Red Carpet Series, #3)
Release Date: 09/05/13
Publisher: Inkspell Publishing

Summary from Goodreads:
Make-up artist to the stars. The favorite aunt. Dance teacher. Baby sister. Talented musician and song-writer.


Why did that word rank above the rest? Helen loved her family and understood they wanted her to have the real love they’d all found. It’s just that she’d found her someone special and learned to live without him. She’d been too young for the quirky, idealistic doctor-off to save the world-to notice. And, really, if she had it her way, he’d never know how she’d felt. Now, he was one of her best friends, a pen pal, losing him would be too much.

Seeing him at their parents wedding, Helen realizes the horrible truth: she still loves Joseph… which wouldn’t be so bad if she wasn’t in the situation she was in.

But she was. And her secret will change everything. Will it destroy hope for a Hollywood happy ending too?

Click on books 1 & 2 for review:

Once again Sasha has made me giddy with joy. This book made me swoon and fall in love all over again. 

Helen has been pining over Joseph since she first laid eyes on him 5 years ago. After spending so many years completely in love with him, she finally decided enough was enough and she was over him. Her heart as other ideas. 

One night while she was babysitting, Joe shows up while she is having a dance off with Will. The minute she sees him she begin an inner war over being over him or not. Who can blame her when he is described as "He was still a solid six foot four, broad and lean. His warm brown eyes were so gentle and soulful, deep and witty." Helen's brother Josh and Joe's sister Claire decide to have Joe stay with Helen since she is single and lives alone. Soon enough Helen is reminded of all the reasons she fell for him in the first place. 

While Joe was in Africa, they were writing back and forth and had decided to pretend to be dated so that Helen would not have to worry about men she did not want anything to do with. After a children's dance recital, Helen is confronted with Chris who can't seem to get a hint. Joe and Helen make a show of showing Chris that she is off the market and all his. 

With the wedding around the corner, Helen is a bit freaked out because she has been sick for months. The day of the wedding she goes to see a doctor to confirm her worst fear. As Joe and Helen quickly grow closer and start to fall for one another, she confides in him about her health issues. Joe being a doctor asks Helen if he can go with her to her doctor appointment. Helen never expects the news she receives.

As Helen is adjusting to all the new changes in her life, Joe has to go back to Africa. Helen is left to break the news of her new life to her dad and step-mom alone when the unimaginable happens.

This book was incredible. I love all the characters; especially Joe. Joe is so funny and adorable. I love that he blushes and is just so stinking cute. He is so passionate. He didn't let ANYTHING stand between him and what/who he wanted. I could go on all day long about how amazing he is. From the very first book Helen's character was strong. She is compassionate and loving and everyone is drawn to her. When all hell breaks loose she is still just as selfless and doesn't let it tear her to pieces. I recommend this book to everyone who loves a sweet romance and just enough heartbreak to make you keep turning the pages.
