*Spoilers possible in discussion
Your character, a lovely young lady you get to name and choose a face for, ends up in LA looking to land a dream job as an actress. It happens. Your best friend becomes your agent. He’s a low-level cog in a big organization. His boss is a big jerk.
- You land a role in a movie with a certifiably nuts director.
- Teja’s the assistant director. The MC likes her. Even the crazy dude likes your character enough to change his movie to give you a bigger role.
- Seth’s a neighbor. He’s hot. He’s also a budding comedian. So is Gloria, a former actress. She’s weird but charming.
- Matt Rodriguez is your co-star. He’s trying to expand from mindless action movies into more demanding drama roles.
- Come to think of it, this book has a relatively low number of love interests/side characters. I guess they usually go with 3-4, so I’m guessing that’s standard. Not sure why it seems small this round.
- They find a way to bring the main character through quite an emotional ringer.
- It’s reminiscent of Rules of Engagement, America’s Most Eligible, and Royal Romance.
- I almost went with the default name (Jessica). The variant, Jessie, fit the character face I’d chosen very well.
I was pleasantly surprised in how much I enjoyed this story. There are no guns drawn or zombies coming out of the woodwork, but there’s a lot of drama.
