Review: Someone Else's Fairytale by E. M. Tippetts

I like to think of myself as a person who wouldn't turn into a squealing fangirl if ever I had the opportunity to meet a celebrity. So the storyline of Someone Else's Fairytale intrigued me from the start.

Someone Else's Fairytale by E.M. Tippetts
JASON VANDERHOLT is Hollywood's hottest actor. 
CHLOE WINTERS is a college student who hasn't bothered to see most of his movies. 
When they meet by chance, he is smitten and Chloe becomes the woman every other woman in America is dying to be, but it just isn't her fairytale.
Chloe Winters is NORMAL, and she likes it that way. All she wants to do is finish college, become a forensic scientist, and forget about the horrible event in her past that changed her life forever.

AND THEN. (Of course there's an "and then")

It starts when Chloe's housemate Lori convinces her to come be an extra on the set of the new Jason Vanderholt movie. Chloe is the farthest thing from a fan of his, but she goes anyway. That's when Jason himself sees her, and everything turns upside down.

One of my absolute favorite parts of this book was that I could totally relate to Chloe. I'm a simple type of girl. Hand-and-foot service and celebrity status could easily make me uncomfortable. I liked that Chloe wasn't a screaming fangirl, because there ARE real girls who don't act like that.

And then there's Jason. Oh, MAN, I loved Jason. I know that Chloe is a realistic character. I don't know about Jason, (I actually don't know any movie stars) but I know I wouldn't have liked him if he acted like a "typical" movie star jerk. But Jason was sweet and nice and normal...well, as normal as a movie star can be.

But this book is about more than just the romance between the "normal" and "famous" girl and guy. Chloe's dealing with a rough life and problems she won't let other people (other people being Jason) help her with. So the story is also about Chloe opening up to other people's aid and understanding that she doesn't have to do everything herself.

Altogether, this was great book I really recommend, especially for people who love that movie The Prince and Me (I do, I totally do!) or just love a good Fairytale with a twist.

I give this book <*><*><*><*>
