Review ~ Access All Areas by Charlotte Phillips

Access All AreaseARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: May 21st 2015

Publisher: HarperImpulse

After losing her elderly parents, portrait photographer Anna will do anything to avoid losing the family home – the only thing she has left of her perfect childhood.

When a friend who works at the exclusive boutique hotel, The Lavington, provides a hot tip – an A list film star is staying there with her rumored toyboy lover – Anna comes up with a plan. A photo of them together could be the answer to all Anna’s money problems.

Unfortunately, she’s the worst paparazzi photographer on the planet and Jack, the hotel’s new head of security, back in England after globetrotting as bodyguard to the stars, isn’t about to allow a picture on his watch. No matter how cute the photographer might be…

My Opinion

This was a short, sweet, and slightly humorous read that I enjoyed over the space of an hour. I preferred it to the first book in the series (the only other I've read) and it held my attention well.

Being a novella there, of course, won't be as much emotional depth. However, I thought the author fitted in quite a bit of back story for both characters and I could sympathise with Anna. I also like that she had morals.

I'd say the romance is more short and sweet than hot, but it had me smiling.

Overall this was an enjoyable read. I liked the author's style and the moments of comedy that come with Anna being a bad paparazzi. Oh, and it can be read as a standalone even though it's the fourth book in the series.
