Mel's thoughts...

Hard Glamour for me was an introduction to Maggie Marr and I gotta say I'm an instant fan. It's been a minute since I've read a Hollywood Bad Boy book and I definitely enjoyed this one. I'm a huge fan of the antiheros and Dillon does start of as a bit of an antihero for sure. He's definitely a bit of a jerk when he first meets Lane and part of me smirked a bit at that, call me weird but that first meeting with these two gave me high hopes for the rest of this book. The chemistry between these two is hot and at first its definitely more angry hot then anything as these two banter back and forth as they fight their attraction to one another. I'm all for emotion and as the story progresses we definitely do see emotions get involved especially when it comes to these two. Dillon turns out to be more then the bad boy persona he portrays and I definitely loved his softer side. But the pressure of Hollywood are high and it's all about appearances right? Hollywood is suck a fickle place and this book definitely shows insane it can be. With feelings that run deep these two definitely have to find a way to navigate that lifestyle and this book was all about seeing whether they would come out unscathed. A highly entertaining read and I found myself engrossed in it to the point where I devoured it in one sitting.

He was so close I could feel the heat of his breath. He was even more handsome up close—if that was possible. How was that possible? He smelled like mint and something so very… male. “A closed set means you’re not supposed to be here.”

I thanked God I had on my sunglasses so he couldn’t see the wide-eyed attraction racing through me. I’d never been so affected by a guy. Even with his anger and his smoldering look, something so crazy inside me wanted to lean forward, clasp my hands to his face, and plant my lips on his. He wasn’t nice, he was a big jerk, but this guy was all kinds of sexy. He latched his gaze on me and paused for the tiniest second, then jerked backward away from me and away from my Jeep.

“So back this heap of shit up and get out of here.” Again he folded his arms over his chest as though he were king of the world and the bimbette reattached her body to his side.

He was going to watch me leave? Make sure I was gone? I didn’t like being ordered around, and I definitely didn’t like being supervised as though I was a child.

“I can handle it,” I called and shoved the stick into reverse, grinding the gears.

“Sounds like you can handle it,” he said and smirked.

“I can,” I yelled. My heart hammered in my chest and a tiny bead of sweat rolled down the back of my neck. I looked out the windows. A small crowd had gathered on the edges of the road. All of them watched me. They stood there and laughed at the hick in L.A.

I pressed the accelerator, and my Jeep jumped forward and died. The crowd around me laughed.
