Total Trainwreck

Carina: Harlequin. (Hollywood Hot Mess, Bk. 2). Sept. 2016. 256p. ebk. ISBN 9781460397473. $3.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Carly Klein is a total train wreck of a Hollywood star, a girl who numbs her pain of past demons with as much alcohol and drugs as her body can handle—and sometimes more. But Carly has fallen in love with her leading man, Devon Hayes, aka the Sexiest Man Alive, and the only thing standing in her way of true happiness is Heather Troy, Devon's longtime partner. But Heather is actually blackmailing Devon to keep their "romance" alive. Devon and Carly heat it up in the bedroom, plotting ways to outsmart the vindictive Heather and stay two steps ahead of the media. It just might be the fight of her life to make this total train wreck into a leading lady!
VERDICT While Carly is not your typical female protagonist, with her smoking, drinking, and drug habit, her battle to overcome her demons and make a life with the hunky Devon will have romance fans ensnared in this latest from Claire (Hollywood Hot Mess). While readers might not relate to the Hollywood starlet or her beefcake boyfriend, this love-conquers-all tale—in all of its explicitness—can be quite addictive itself.
