"It Girl" by Elle Rush





After a decade of bit parts, Caitlin Kelly’s acting career is taking off, thanks in part to her chemistry with her co-star on the hit show “Olympus”.Sean Glenn, Olympus's God of Love, wants to move their romance off-screen, but his stalker has other ideas.

When Caitlin’s career pulls her in one direction and Sean’s personal life pushes him in another, will their love keep them together?

Lesson No. 1 in life. Don’t ever shit on your own doorstep. That is one of the main rules that I have stuck to and I did once break that rule and believe me that was awkward.
All in all I give it 3 ‘I wish I would have liked it more’ Stars.
I am going somewhere with this so please just bear with me. As an author Ms. Rush writes well and I have read some enjoyable books by her. This to my utter dismay isn’t one of them.
I don’t mind the whole shindig of actors/romance etc. and throughout the book I was seriously trying to pinpoint what made this so hard for me to read and this morning I had a light bulb moment. You just don’t shit on your own doorstep. See my number one rule above.
As a Hero Sean Glenn was nice enough and he is a ginger (yes there are apparently good looking gingers out there ladies) He is an actor on the set of Olympus a TV show. He has been lucky when it came to his career.
I’m conflicted about Caitlin the heroine of the book. There is no nice way to say this but I. DID. NOT. LIKE. HER. ONE. EFFING. BIT.
Sean cleans up his act as he is a bit of a man whore, Hollywood it apparently happens. He hasn’t really been that discreet about it either. He sees Caitlin at a volleyball tournament and he is in lust. IT helps that Caitlin gets a role on the series of Olympus and that she plays his love interest.
I felt that they were lacking in chemistry somewhat at least and that Cait was only really interested in her career.
I think that one stalker would have been enough but hey the guy is popular so he got more than one.
Will there be books based on the band Charlie Oscar Echo?
I enjoy Ms. Rush’s books and I will check the others out.
