My name is Olivia Bloom and I. Am. Free.
I left for LA with everything I owned piled into my old Volkswagen and dreams of becoming a costume designer. Little did I know I’d wind up designing for a lingerie company—yeah, not sure how I landed this gig—and taken under the wing of two young Hollywood insiders. The fashion shows and parties were great, but life really got exciting when the seriously hottest lead singer of my favorite band started to fall for me.
How does someone like me, an ordinary girl from Pittsburgh, wind up in the arms of the world’s sexiest rock star—surrounded by celebrities, fashion, and music—and not be eaten alive? Berkeley is everything I’ve ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, but the paparazzi, the tabloids, the rumors, it’s all getting a bit too crazy. My life has become every girl’s dream come true, if only I don’t blink and lose it all…

After a cheating boyfriend broke her heart Olivia takes a leap and lands in LA. It doesn’t take long for her to find her footing. She has two great friends who help her learn “the rules” and a job she seems to enjoy. Now all she needs is to figure what’s going on with her heart.
Berkeley may be a rock star to everyone else, but to him he’s just a man who loves to play music. All he’s missing is a drama free girlfriend who actually cares about him and not the spotlight of being a celebrity. When he meets Olivia, who admits right away she’s a fan, but who doesn’t go all fan-stalker on him, he’s intrigued and can’t stop thinking about her.
It’s amazing what a man will do to get a girl he likes to come over. Guess that’s what best friends are for!
I enjoyed every part of this story, from the crazy psychic mom, to the dress-me-up moments, to the paper heart, moon, and star cutouts.
My Favorite Laughable Moment: A movie premier and a slip of the tongue, along with all of the tweets from her friends on the subject.
My Favorite Moment: There’s nothing like a man playing a guitar and singing you a song he wrote. The entire moment was perfect!
Overall, I give this 5 stars!
