  Cole Masten. Abandoned by his superstar wife, Hollywood’s Perfect Husband is now Hollywood’s Sexiest Bachelor: partying hard and screwing even harder. Watch out Los Angeles, there's a new bad boy in town. Summer Jenkins. That’s me, a small town girl stuck in Quincy, Georgia. I cook some mean chicken and dumplins, can bluff a grown man out of his savings in poker, and was voted Most Friendly my senior year. We were from different worlds. Our lives shouldn’t have collided. But then Cole Masten read a book about my small town. And six months later, his jet landed on our dusty airstrip, and he brought Hollywood with him. From the start, I knew he was trouble. For our town. And for me. Sometimes, opposites just aren’t meant to attract..

EXCERPT: When the door to the production trailer burst open, it brought with it a wave of heat and beauty. Cole looked up from the storyboards and locked eyes with Summer, who blew across the room at him like a tornado on tilt. “There’s no love story between Ida and Royce.” Summer snapped, throwing down the script, pages fluttering down between them. In the small trailer, conversations stalled and he could feel the attention turn their way. “I’ve read the book. Three times!” It was good to know that someone had read the damn book. Cole glanced down at her temper tantrum of a mess and back up, raising his eyebrows mildly. “It’s a movie,” he said, turning back to the storyboards. “The writers are adding some excitement. It’s normal. You’d know that if you were in this business.” The dig was unnecessary but he couldn’t help it. This woman turned him into the devil. “I read the first script. The one you sent over with my contract. Ida and Royce hated each other. Why would Royce…” she snatched up a page from the ground and read out a line. “pushes Ida against the file cabinet and kisses her passionately.” She balled up the page and threw it down to the ground and he could see, in her eyes, the panic. Panic. An unexpected reaction. “We’ll use that,” Don made the dangerous move of stepping in, putting a soft hand on her shoulder. “You don’t understand. The passion from their hatred will make it hotter.” “No.” Summer said, her face hard, her eyes on Cole. “It doesn’t make it hotter. It makes it stupid.” “Aww… come on, Summer.” Cole chided, stepping closer, his hand reaching out to pull at her wrist. She fought him, yanking it back and the moment of their bodies meeting didn’t happen. He leaned down and whispered, right against her ear, the smell of her apple-scented lotion enough to make him want to empty out the production trailer right that moment. “Sure it does.” She jerked back and twisted away. “If he kisses me on camera I’m going to lose it.” She shot at Don, pointing an accusatory finger in Cole’s direction. “I know you will,” Cole laughed, crossing his arms to fight from reaching out. “You’ll fall apart under my mouth, baby.” Summer screamed in response, her hands thrown up in frustration, and spun to leave, her script left behind, the slam of the exit door loud in the full production trailer. “That went well,” Cole mused. He linked his hands and rested them on his head, rolling his shoulders back. Panic. She’d had panic in her eyes. Fuck. “What do you expect?” Don said. “You threw this on her without warning. I told you we should have met with her this morning, gone over the changes to prepare her. But no – you just wanted to dump it on her via call sheets and sides.” “Dump it on her? I was People’s Sexiest Man last year. She’s not mentally adjusting to a war camp for God’s sake. How hard is it to kiss me?” “It’s actually three kisses,” a dark-haired PA to his left pointed out. “And a grope.” He gave her a hard look and she withered a little. “I’ll go talk to her,” Don said. “Eileen, you shoot #4 and I’ll talk to Summer. I want to try to get #14 shot at eleven so let’s get our asses in gear and get this done.” “I’ll talk to her.” Cole stepped in. “You shoot #4 and I’ll talk to her.” “No,” Don snapped. “With my luck you two would make up and any authenticity to the scene would disappear. Just stay away from her and be ready at eleven.” Cole chewed on his cheek, then nodded. “Fine.” Don was right. He should stay away from her. Far. Far away.

MY 5 STAR REVIEW



Being from the South, I immediately fell in love with this story set in the small Southern town of Quincy. Alessandra completely nailed the setting, attitude and actions of Southerns. Furthermore, my town actually had a movie set there and when Hollywood came to my tiny town of Oliver Springs the rumor mill was exactly the same. I couldn’t have loved this premise and setting any more if I tried.

Summer Jenkins is an outcast in her town and for the longest time we don’t know why. She is charming, quick-witted and lovable. Living with her mother she lives a quite life, but dreams of more, of escaping her past. When a Hollywood scouter, Ben, comes to Quincy to procure film sites she offers her assistances in exchange for a cut of his pay. Ben and Summer become fast friends and we start seeing tiny hints at why Summer is ready to move on from Quincy.



Cole Masten is Hollywood Royalty and going through a messy divorce after finding his wife cheating on him. He is pretentious, egoistical and sexy as hell, but when he arrives in Quincy everyone treats him just like an average guy, especially Summer. Discovered as a teenager he doesn’t know what it’s like for a woman not to want him just on his name and social status alone. 

This culture shock is just what he needed, a chance to remember who he really is. I loved this part of the story and getting to know Cole. I loved seeing Cole with Cocky and seeing his softer side. I loved how Summer never gave up on him and treated him like a regular guy. 



Hollywood Dirt is definitely not a story of insta-love, the relationship has a slow build and I loved every minute of it. Cole and Summer have this intense chemistry, but Summer is not having anything Cole’s laying down. I laughed reading Cole’s advances, but also fell so in love with his sincerity. 

This story is absolute perfection and enjoyed every single word. It’s not a secret Alessandra is one of my favorite authors and people in this world, but when I read stories like this I am reminded of why. She always delivers a unique, sexy story. This isn’t dark or mysterious, it’s just fun, romantic and sexy as hell. I am in love with this couple and highly recommend it so you can fall in love, too!
