Review ~ Adapted For Film by Stacey Rourke

Adapted For Film
eBook downloaded for free via Amazon.

Release Date: March 9th 2015

Publisher: Anchor Publishing Group


Aubrey Evans is living every author’s dream; her sizzling romance novel is being turned into a blockbuster film. She would be celebrating this momentous event, if she wasn’t busy fighting over every tiny production detail with the maddeningly cavalier director, Kole Camden. 

When news of their heated rivalry hits the gossip columns, drastic measures must be taken to save their sinking project. In an elaborate PR hoax, she is publicly linked to Greyson Meyers, the swoon-worthy star of her movie. A whirl-wind love affair is staged for the couple to mirror the steamy chapters of her own books. 

Can the introverted author resist the charms of Hollywood’s sexiest leading man? Or will love find her in the City of Angels?

My Opinion

This is the first book I've read by this author so I wasn't sure what I was getting. In the end Adapted for Film was a quick and easy read with some humorous moments, but it did leave me wanting more.

In general, this book was likeable. It started off well with the comical clashes between the author, Aubrey, and the director, Kole. I liked the mix of interviews in the present day and the events actually unfolding as they happened. However, for me, the romance left a lot to be desired for. I liked the premise of the idea, but I just felt it needed more. I was never fully invested in one guy more than the other, and I felt things moved too quickly so that emotions didn't feel believable. I kept wanting to decide on a guy for Aubrey to be with, but couldn't, and in the end I kind of ended up disliking her for stringing them along. The romance had a lot of potential, it just took a bit long to arrive and then was over too quick once it did. I needed more growth, chemistry, and emotion.

Overall, it's an easy and likeable read.
