    Humor, drama, snappy banter & madcap zaniness

    I thought this was a good read. This enemies to lovers story contains a blend of humor, drama, snappy banter and a touch of madcap zaniness. I liked Clara and Caspian. I thought they had good chemistry and I liked the sparks they generated. As fun as this was, I did feel that the book lagged sometimes, especially in the beginning and my attention would wander on occasion. Still, for a first book, I found it enjoyable and I would definately try more books from this author.

    Delightful Banter

    I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. Crashing The A-List by Summer Heacock is the first book I’ve read by this author and it won’t be the last. I started reading this book around dinner time and kept reading until I’d finished it with total disregard for my long and busy day at work the next day. Clara Montgomery a book editor has lost her job when her publishing company is bought out by a giant of a company, her roommate kicked her out and she is now sleeping on her brother’s sofa and has taken on the task of cleaning out abandoned/repossessed storage units for her sister-in-law’s uncle who may or may not be connected. One of the storage units contains the paperwork from an escort service and it turns out one of the escorts is now an A-List British actor, Caspian Tiddleswich. The story is classic enemies to lovers/fake engagement as he thinks she’s going to blackmail him and she thinks he’s going to have her arrested and when a picture of them with him looking angry and her crying hits the tabloids his agents think a pretend relationship will calm the publicity waters. Fabulous banter, an awesome best friend and one of the best most heartfelt apologies make this such a fun book to read. I highly recommend reading this book. Sweet more than steamy.

    Laugh Out Loud

    Clara and Caspian’s unusual love story is one you might read in the tabloids not a book entitled Crashing the A-List by Summer Heacock. Out of work Clara is desperate for a job, even one outside her career as an editor. Desperate times means taking any job that pays, even one cleaning out abandoned storage units. Making sure that nothing important or valuable was left behind Clara unearths a list of employees for an escort service, finding the name of a famous actor on the list. In the confusion of a drunk phone call, a visit from said actor, Caspian Tiddleswich, and major misunderstandings, Clara is blackmailed into posing as Caspian’s girlfriend until he completes his run in a Broadway play. Then there’s not to miss all the publishing houses offering Clara a job because of her connection to Caspian; causing her to feel less and less valued for her abilities but more for who she knew. We see Caspian portray a variety of personas as he deals with Clara, usually not politely. At this point it was difficult for me to like Caspian. He did try to redeem himself and by making a grand gesture. A gesture that was not only sincere but heart-warming and suggesting the path this story would take toward a happy ever after. I just wonder if with all the negative and evil ways he treated Clara and misunderstood the situations if it was truly enough for her forgiveness. Ms. Heacock wrote a humorous and sexy story that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sexual chemistry, amusing banter, laugh out loud scenes and endearing characters giving Clara and Caspian a chance for happiness, love and a future together, neiter expected. I definitely recommend Crashing the A-List to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

    Zany, snarky romantic comedy

    Clara Montgomery was a children's book editor until the publishing house she worked for was bought out by a soulless e-book retailer. Now she's unemployed, sleeping on her little brother's (extremely uncomfortable) couch and working for her brother's fiance's rather shady Uncle Charlie emptying storage units. When she comes across evidence that a famous British actor called Caspian Tiddleswich was once a male escort she and her BFF briefly consider selling the information to the gossip rags but her conscience gets the better of her. Unfortunately after one too many drinks Clara accidentally leaves a drunken rambling message on Caspian's phone. What she meant to say was "Don't worry, I have the information safe and I won't share it", but what it sounded like was an attempt at blackmail. Clara recalls nothing of the call until an irate Caspian tracks her down and threatens to report her to the police. Instead of reporting Clara to the police Caspian does some blackmailing of his own, forcing her to accompany him to dinners, parties and other social events to appease his 'people'. In addition, he is such a jerk that every second in his company is an exercise in self-control for Clara so that she doesn't throat-punch him. I love me an enemies to lovers romance and this was a great one, full of antics, weird relatives, fancy parties, peculiar storage units, snarky repartee and lovable characters. However, I have to say the first chapter or two didn't grab me, Clara's BFF was a bit too full on and there was a lot of so-called 'zany' humour which I don't like. But once Caspian appeared the one-liners and the snark were just perfect. I will look out for other books by Summer Heacock, she writes relatable, intelligent characters with humour and flair (also as a Brit I liked that her British hero didn't have lots of fake British sayings). I was invited to read a free copy of this book by the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review. Bumped for release.
