Star Shine Meadows is a star NYC gig worker, juggling jobs like line-sitting and professional princess impersonation. When, in full character costume, she meets arrogant, affluent Rafe, he makes her an irresistible offer: $10,000 a month to deter his matchmaking mother by pretending to be his girlfriend. Though their friends and family mistrust the match, and Star’s bohemian ways constantly clash with Rafe’s blue blood, they soon realize their fake relationship could be something more. Young (A Cosmic Kind of Love) presents an opposites-attract, character-driven contemporary romance with a delightful cast of characters and hot sex scenes. Narrator Savannah Peachwood perfectly captures every engaging moment, from playful to passionate. Her expressive portrayal matches the upbeat leading lady’s mission to bring joy to lives and will undoubtedly leave listeners smiling.
VERDICT This audio will appeal to listeners seeking a steamy, spirited play on Pretty Woman or The Wedding Date (sans sex work). Recommended for fans of the humorous rom-com romps of Katherine Center, Sarah Adams, and Elena Armas.
