Aly King is about to fall for the fallen

My best friend, Des, and I totally freaked when we won the contest to meet THE Dakota Danvers in Hollywood. But now we’re finding out he’s SO not the angel everyone believes him to be. In fact, Dakota is the son of Satan, wreaking havoc on Hollywood and creating an evil army hellbent on world domination.

Lucky for us, Dakota’s super-cute personal assistant, Jameson, is a fallen angel trying to get his wings back, and he’s working undercover to squash his demon boss’s plan. If Jameson hadn’t taken me under his wing I’d be in serious trouble, because I’m a total newb when it comes to conquering evil. But, truth be told, that sexy angel’s got me all aflutter and may be one temptation I can’t resist.

Seriously, this book exactly delivered what it promised me with the synopsis and the cover!What did I expect? A cute and fun story with adorable characters, dreamy Angels, hot boys and some evil villains. Oh and of course some sweet looooovvveeee! The cover is absolutely adorable and perfect for the book and the story! I love when you get the whole package!

I wanna meet my favorite TV show star too!!

Aly wins the dream, each of us little Fan Girls also have – to visit the set of her favorite TV show “Paranormal PI” (think Supernatural with only 1 brother) and the chance to meet the star of the show (think Jared Padalecki). Honestly, even I would have been thrilled to win something like this. Needless to say Aly was more than a little excited! plus, even better she could take her best friend and only was accompanied by her big sister!
Ready for a L.A. Trip!

Aly and Jameson – a story from 2 POV and a Goth-girly-sidekick! 

Aly had a cute, very cute voice. I loved her instantly. She had an edge of sadness surrounding her because of her mother’s death – but she’s a brave, strong and very loyal friend! Really, I think I’d love to have her as my friend. It was cute to see her slowly falling for Jameson but I also loved to see how she handled her best friend Des – who was one of the best sidekicks ever! Des was a quirky and fun Goth Girl who was so full of Energy. Seeing the dynamic between those girls was one of the best part of the story!

Jameson was exactly what you need in a hero! He was hot, cute but with a soft heart! And apart from Aly’s POV we also get Jameson’s POV in alternating chapters.

Cute Angels – Bad Demon’s , secrets & mysteries and … lots to laugh! 

That sums the story up nicely, but that is also what I expected. The story was nicely paced, not too slow and not too fast. There was always time to catch a breath and laugh or swoon over Jameson.

I loved the fun and light note the whole story had! There were some scenes I was laughing my a.. off! And, actually this happened already in the first few pages! Des was the source for many super funny moments and the book wouldn’t be the same without her! In addition there are some moments with Jameson and … some higher order that will simply crack you up! Promise!

But, apart from the laughter there is also a little seriousness. How Aly deals with her death mother and also the Seven Sins are mentioned.

Bewitched Rating

Bottom Line

Hilarious, sweet, cute and adorable! Adorkable characters with a sidekick who totally rocked. Add in a sweet romance and a mystery to uncover and you have Hollyweird!! Hollyweird is the perfect summer read, light and fun with everything there to entertain you for a few hours!

  1. This sounds fun. The protagonists sounds like a lot of fun. And a goth too is different I have this from NG but I hadn’t seen any reviews yet so so far so good 🙂

  2. Kristin

    Great review, this book sounds like it’s everything I was hoping it would be. And I love differing POVs.

    Can’t wait to read it!

  3. I’m glad that this turned out to be such a fun read for you. I have to admit that when I first read its summary, I wasn’t really sure about it because books like this often don’t deliver on their summaries, but I’m happy that this isn’t the case with HOLLYWEIRD. 🙂 Thanks for your honest review!

  4. First: I love the cover of this one and I love that you create your own pictures there and make it look like a real book!

    Second: Great review! I’m still not 100% sure if I’ll like this, but it sounds like it could be for me. *scratches head* I mean, I *am* looking for cute and angel boys, but at the same time, I often have issues with angel-stories. *g*

    Third: In your sidebar, where the badge says “Adult” you didn’t link to the tag but to a review. On purpose?
