Sarah's 2¢: How You Get the Girl by Jessica Florence

As Hollywood’s hottest actor, getting a woman in my bed is never a challenge.

Then I spotted her at a bar—she wanted a man for the night, and I jumped at the chance to fill the role. I gave her Joel Kline’s best, and she smacked my pretty face.

But don’t worry, that’s not the end of our story. Her brand of crazy inspired me, and I had to see her again, no matter the cost.

Now, Alessandra Rose is my lead makeup artist for the next four months.

Literally, her job is to touch me every day for the duration of filming. Sounds like a win, right?

Nope, she stops me at every hint of a flirt. I’m in uncharted waters for once.

Joel Kline’s famous techniques to get the girl are failing me. It’s no longer about those sexy Brazilian lips, or her fiery spirit that gives me a hard-on.

It’s about making her banana pancakes after she spends the night in my home.

It’s about knocking down those walls around her, claiming her as mine.

She’s going to fight me, of course, unwilling to accept that it’s not all an act.

But I’m not going anywhere; that’s how you get the girl. 


How You Get The Girl is the second book in Jessica Florence's Theme Song series.  It reads perfectly as a standalone, but the side characters do interconnect since they're the main characters in book one, Long Ride.  It's not imperative that you read it, but it's a good jumping off point.

Joel Kline is Hollywood's leading man, Alessandra Rose is his makeup artist.  She's not looking for a relationship, but he's completely drawn to her and will go to great lengths to get her to realize it.  Their banter was great, and I've come to realize that Jessica Florence is great with romantic comedy.  Her writing is quick-witted and fun and easy to devour in one sitting.  

Since I read this book after Long Ride, I can definitely say that I related to How You Get the Girl more.  It was funnier for me, and with Alessandra being a single mother, I feel like my maternal side kicked in and I enjoyed it that much more.
