Three years after her ex-boyfriend left her to pursue his Hollywood dream, barista Riley Eames is still haunted by questions only he can answer. So when he asks to meet her after a full day of press junkets, she reluctantly agrees – only to get stuck in the hotel elevator with rising British actor Ashe Hunter who’s in town to promote his next movie.
He’s gorgeous, polite, and before the night is over, smitten with the woman who has no idea who he is.
But even as sparks fly between them, it’s going to take more than a celebrity romance to get Riley’s life moving again for the ex-boyfriend is back in town and with him, the answers to the questions that will change Riley’s life forever.
To his fans, Ashe Hunter is the perfect man, the classically trained British actor taking Hollywood and Broadway by storm. To his American girlfriend, Riley Eames, he is a man in love who’ll do anything to keep her safe from the prying eyes of paparazzi suddenly digging into her life.
But to someone from his past, Ashe is her ticket to Hollywood fame, and she’ll do anything to get it even if it means tearing down the perfect image he built for himself long after he left her.
