K.J. Pierce keeps readers smiling with this fun behind the scenes look at life,on a television show set. Izzie Greene is a quirky character filled with self-doubt and low self-esteem one moment and taking on the world single-handedly the next. I liked the odd mixture of elements that combined to make her Izzie. I admit to judging her harshly when it came to her ex but I could see things from her perspective. I loved watching her become a little awestruck with Cardwell Bennett but only when she thought he might be acting like more than a friend. Cardwell is better than a dream because he is the reality, when gets angry or frustrated and his brogue comes to life I couldn't keep the smile off my face. In fact the book should come with a warning that your face will hurt while reading from all the smiling you will do. I can't decide who kept the grin on my face more, Izzie and her clumsy antics, the bickering between her and her bestie, the actions of her beloved furbaby, the bodyguards or her boss. Needless to say the smile was darn near permanent with the occasional smirk, snort and maybe a head shake or two. If you are looking for a pleasant read this is a great choice.
