Description:

One of Hollywood's hardest working women is about to discover there's a lot more drama behind the camera than in front of it. . . Faith "Freakin'" Sinclair probably shouldn't have called her boss a perv. . .or grabbed his "privates." But as creator of the hit dramedy Modern Women, she'd had enough of his sexist insults. Now she's untouchable in the industry--not in a good way. The only way to redeem herself is to convince Alex, the wildly popular, wildly demanding former star of her show, to come back. But there's one obstacle in her way--one very handsome, broad-shouldered obstacle. . .

Professor Mason Mitchell is head of the theater department where Alex is studying "real" acting. The only way he'll let Faith anywhere near Alex is if she agrees to co-teach a class. It's an offer she can't refuse--and as it turns out, the professor just might end up teaching Faith that there's more to life than work--and that real-life love scenes are way more fun than fake ones.


My Thoughts: 

Oh my gosh where to begin with this book, there is so much greatness in this story.  In it we follow Faith "Freakin'" Sinclair who has gotten herself in a major jam at work when she offends her boss and finds herself unemployed and black balled basically everywhere.  Finding herself with no other option she swallows her pride and decides to hunt down the one person who can fix her damaged career barring she can convince him to come back to Modern Women.  

While on the hunt for Alex she comes eye to eye with Professor Mason Mitchell who seems to be a thorn in her side when she is trying to trap Alex to talk to him.  Pro. Mitchell will only allow her to access Alex as long as she doesn't brow beat him into submission or con him into returning.  The other contingency is being asked to co-teach a class in order to have access to Alex to begin with.  

It takes a bit for Mason and Faith to meet eye to eye on anything and that is after Faith's step-brother has been helping himself to all her money and she is stuck relying on Mason to help her find a place to stay while co-teaching.  Then Faith winds up sick and Mason and one of his students help her get better.

I loved this story so much the realness of the characters that Ms. Denker brings to the reader is so incredible. She writes characters you can hate and ones you can love.  She also gives you a book you don't want to put down it's that good.  She is definitely one of my favorite authors.  Reminds me alot of Jill Shalvis and Kristan Higgins but in her own right so much better!  If you haven't read her books you are really missing out!
