Average person meets incognito celebrity trope, but make it believable and compelling.
Plot: Georgia is a journalist hunting her first big story. She bumps into a childhood friend/crush when they’re stranded by flight delays and sparks fly, but she’s based out of LA and he’s based out of London and they’re both Busy AdultsTM so it’s obviously a one and done. Only turns out that (a) he has essential information for her investigation, and (b) he’s one of the most famous actors in the world. Shenanigans ensue.
So first thing to note is the story Georgia is hunting down – it involves the systemic drugging and assaulting of women. It also includes discussions of victim blaming as barriers to justice. There are very few details on the page but even the concept being here will likely be too much for some readers. But if you are able to read such subject matter, do recall that in Romancelandia, happy endings are guaranteed.
If the grumpy-sunshine works for you, this is a terrific example of it. Georgia is working through some dark shit. She has a chip on her shoulder and walls a foot thick. Alex is belligerently happy all the time. But they get along right away, because they accept the other person immediately and without question, and things only evolve from there.
And without spoiling anything, this book has one of my favourite endings in romance.
