Contemporary Romance
Unrequited love is hell on earth Personal assistant Wendy Davila is in love with her boss, Halden Armstrong, megastar of the Apollo superhero film franchise. But she can’t compete with the succession of stick-thin blond beauties he’s caught and released. Or can she? When Halden asks Wendy to accompany him on a fishing trip to Muskoka, it’s her chance to remake her dark-haired, curvy Latina self into his ideal woman and cast her hook for Halden. Can he trust her? Halden has been burned by love. The last thing he wants is a woman like his ex who faked it until she landed him. Wendy is special, and the private trip is an opportunity to explore his feelings for her. However, the Greek god has an Achilles’ heel. Can he trust Wendy with a secret that could ruin his career? And will she still care for him when she learns the truth? When Apollo falls off his pedestal, Wendy must decide if the man she adores is a keeper.

This book contains:

  • mentions of alcohol and drug abuse
  • an almost drowning of a young girl

Wendy is a young PA, recently out of university working for a world-famous actor. An actor she has a massive crush on and who she’s hoping will notice her and want to be with her.

Haldon on the other hand is hiding a massive secret, a secret that could potentially ruin his career, not to mention his own crush on Wendy. Given how his first marriage ended and why, he’s understandably worried about opening up to Wendy, especially because he’s her boss.

Halden whisks Wendy away on a two-week getaway to Muskoka to fish and look for his own private fishing get away. During their getaway, we learn some surprising truths about them both, including some that almost ruin their chances.

As a simple contemporary romance, I think this is a great story. Although at times I also wondered why Wendy would like someone like Haldon in the first place. Although he put in a lot of effort to grow up, I’m not sure how much going back to him helps women’s rights and sexism?

I had a great time reading it, enjoyed the simple pleasure of Wendy standing up for herself and the right to have true love. But I also had this weird sense of not feeling entirely happy with how this all played out.

Author Bio

Growing up, Madelle enjoyed nineteen summers at her grandparents’ cottage on Georgian Bay in the beautiful District of Muskoka, Ontario, Canada, named by National Geographic Traveler magazine as one of their top 20 Best of the World Must-see Places.

Muskoka is Canada’s summer playground for many wealthy families and Hollywood celebrities. The Hollywood in Muskoka series updates the upstairs/downstairs trope: successful people in the film industry on vacation fall for service providers.

Madelle lives in Ottawa, Canada’s capital, with her husband and their labradoodle Raven. She dreams of owning a waterfront cottage. Or at least a pool.
