A barista in search of the truth.
A Hollywood star yearning for authenticity.
A chance meeting that will change their lives forever.
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.
“Really fantastic tale of love and family. Not your usual ‘Hollywood’ romance novel.“
“If you love well-written, beautifully conflicted chic-lit, you’re gonna love Liz Madrid’s book. I read it serially on the fabulous Wattpad where I discovered this lovely, warm-hearted writer. She brings to this adorable, yet serious, yet light-hearted romance a deep humanity that defines the novel and its author. Discover Ashe and fall in love with him the way I did and then see how hard it is to find that love, trust it and fall in love again.”

“A quick enjoyable read and a lovely fantasy. This book had echoes of a modern-day “Cinderella” tale, but edgier.”
