Right on Cue

Emmy Harper is trying to roll with the punches to get her latest rom-com script into production. First, she agrees to act in the leading-lady role, despite her completely devastating last attempt at acting. Then she agrees to push forward when the previously cast male lead breaks his leg, and Grayson West, whom Emmy has hated since that disastrous first movie, is the only match available. If she wants this movie made, everyone is going to have to forget about the past. Easier said than done for Emmy. When the director forces them both to reckon with the situation, Emmy realizes that Grayson wasn’t the only problem, and maybe it’s time to get over her long-held grudge. Even with a truce, the tension remains high, and a desperate Emmy proposes a one-time hookup with Grayson to see if it clears the air. This quickly becomes a regular occurrence, and if they can avoid the pitfalls of Hollywood romances and their own doubts, it could easily grow into more.
VERDICT Ballard’s (Just My Type) latest is full of winks to the rom-com genre and packed with steamy tension.
