Take Two by Laurelin Paige

Rating: 4/5 stars
Publication Date: February 4 2014


He’s ready for his close up, but she’s the one calling the shots. 

On the night of her graduation from film school, straight-laced Maddie Bauers fell completely out of character for an oh-my-god make-out session with a perfect stranger. Complete with the big O.

Seven years later, that romantic interlude is still fresh in her mind. That stranger is now a rich and famous actor. And she’s one very distracted camera assistant working on his latest production. She might consider another tryst…if he even remembers her.

Micah Preston does indeed remember Maddie. Too bad he’s sworn off Hollywood relationships. He allows himself as much sex as he likes—and oh, he does like—but anything more is asking for trouble. For the woman, not for him. Yet knowing Maddie could want more than a movie-set fling doesn’t stop him from pursuing her like a moth drawn to hot stage lights. 

But as the shoot nears its end, it’s decision time. Is it time to call, “Cut!” on their affair, or is there enough material for a sequel?

Warning: Contains a dreamy movie star hero, a focus-pulling heroine, off-the-charts instant chemistry, steamy sex in near-public locations, and a new use for lip gloss.


Usually I hate the cold and hot showers between the characters Micha and Mandy were coming close and then they were pulling apart for most of the book. Now add Micha's reluctance to enter a relationship and you get what the book is about. 

I found it quite enjoyable and a good read. It wasn't mind blowing, but I got my fill at romance and angst (though it wasn't much). What was the most memorable about the book is an Micha's stubbornness to acknowledge and accept his feelings for Mandy.

An epilogue would have been a great idea because I didn't felt as if the story was complete. I wanted to see how Mandy and Micha were doing with their relationship and how they balanced the work - relationship thing. I want a book for Christian, Micha`s bodyguard who seemed like a great character.
