Review - Queen of the Universe by Geralyn Corcillo

SUMMARY
TV writer extraordinaire Lola Scott is about to lose her show because she still hasn't cast the role of Sam Destry, the dark, brooding bounty hunter. But then the PERFECT man for the part walks into her office—Arlen Black. One problem, though. He's not an actor there to audition. Nope. He's the handyman Lola hired to renovate her historic Hollywood house.  

No problem. Lola gleefully offers him the dream job of a lifetime. No dice—the stoic recluse in a tool belt wants nothing to do with Lola and her show. But Lola doesn't give up. She goes after Arlen using every trick she can think of, but her Hollywood machinations just bounce right off him.   

Why can't she get a bead on this guy?  

A scrambling Lola is about to get the ax when Arlen surprises her socks off and signs on to play Sam. She has no idea why he changed his mind, but she doesn't have time to stop and think about it. Not when she has to get him camera-ready, suppress her totally unprofessional attraction to him, and hide from the studio exec, her million-dollar leading lady, and the world at large that her ace-in-the-hole leading man is really just her sexy handyman.  

When the stellar pilot garners media accolades, Hollywood gossip sinks its claws into Arlen. One paparazzi photo threatens to destroy everything he holds dear, and at last Lola understands why he upended his life to do the show and save her career. Now she's got to move heaven and Earth not to save the show … but to save Arlen.

MY REVIEW 
I love the concept of this book!  Real world meets Hollywood Glam!  It will pull you in right from the very beginning!  

Lola Scott is a TV Writer who can work wonders on just about any TV issue that can happen!  Now, can she turn HER TV show into reality or will she go down in history for this one failure never to be heard from again?

Lola and Ray (her trusty sidekick who is truly hilarious on all accounts) are in trouble...they can't find anyone to play the part of Sam, the mysterious man that lives next store.  What exactly will Lola do if she can't find a leading man in time?

Then HE walks in...Sam...the man she has always dreamed about...BUT WAIT, this man isn't even an actor?

Arlen Black stopped by the set to get details from Lola regarding renovations on her house and he doesn't realized what crazy dream he just walked into!  He doesn't realize what just happened to him in the matter of a Hollywood Minute.

Lola manages to talk him into reading for the part with her and the kiss, wow that kiss!  All in the name of the show right?  Or was it?

And this is where the crazy whirlwind begins...Will Lola win Arlen over?  Will her agree to play same?  Will she fall in love with this man and not even know it?  

Geralyn will keep you intrigued from beginning to end, you will never know what will happen from one chapter to the next!  

Sit back and grab your favorite bottle of wine and enjoy every minute!

MY RATING 
I give this fun Hollywood tale of love and desire, 5 wine glasses!  I couldn't stop reading, I always needed to know more!  (I truly hope there is another book in the mix for this amazing cast of characters!)
