It was right out of one of my movies:
Tropical island, sexy single man, two hot nights of nameless passion.
Except instead of falling into each other's arms, we went our separate ways, never to be seen again.
Of course I thought about him all the time. The way he laughed, the way he saw right through me, the way he took no shit as his strong hands roamed my body. If there was one night I could repeat, it would be that one.
I never expected to see my mystery man again.
Fast forward to my new movie set and the handsome property owner. Yep, same guy. Same sexy, sexy guy. Our chemistry is still off the charts but there’s one tiny problem: he doesn’t trust me.
Okay, so I skipped a few important details. I don’t blame the guy. But they were just little white lies. Unfortunately if I want that movie-perfect ending I’m going to have to set the record straight...and hopefully have a little fun in the process.
Much needed time away. Getting out of the limelight and paparazzis. Oh and giving a fake name. The ups, downs, twists and turns, letting the stress go and learn how to relax. Lily and Cole's journey doesn't last the initial 48 hours. They last a lifetime.
Lily aka Annie is on a secluded beach vacation where if anonymity is her friend. Her name was dragged in the mud by her parents but she keeps her head held high to prove everyone wrong. So when Ted, her best friend/director dragged her away on a vacation, she got more than she bargained for. Cole aka Cowboy attraction to Lily was hot but he knowing the affair had a time stamp, he let his worries go. But when it was up, they made a promise to each other.
Lily landed an acting role and the location was none other than Cole's ranch. With a rocky beginning and finding out the lies that were said, they built the relationship up again. But with roadblocks in place, will their relationship will survive from the red carpet to ranches.
7 Dirty lives was a fun read. Minus a few over the top drama seekers, I wanted to see the couple finding their happy ending and wishing they surviving the limelight of Hollywood.
