Hollywood is dirty and no one knows that better than Julia Harris. Sitting atop the ever-changing throne, she’s currently Tinseltown’s golden girl. And she’s just signed on to play the biggest role of her life.

Meeting celebrities is par for the course in Aiden Morrissey’s job. As a production assistant he’s met his fair share, but it’s this latest encounter that steals his heart. And he’s not ready for what’s to come.

But fame has a price tag and anonymity no longer exists. Ousted by her co-star, Julia and Aiden’s relationship is thrust into the spotlight long before they’re ready, and what was once a secret is now Hollywood’s biggest tabloid story.

Tracey’s Review

Why have I not read this author duo before?? Have I been living under a rock? When I was offered a chance to Beautiful Secret, I didn’t really know what I was going to get from the book and the authors.

I was blown away with this story. It hooked its claws into me and I just couldn’t put down this book once I started reading. It is a beautifully written love story set in the Movie industry.

We meet Julia and Aiden and get to experience their journey and what a sweet romantic journey. Now it wouldn’t be Hollywood without any drama and this book has that. Claire Raye was able to craft realistic characters and the struggles that many actors and their families go through in the public eye. Finding love is never easy but being an Oscar winning Actress comes with so many more problems.

From the initial meeting to the end of the book you can feel the chemistry between our main characters, their love for each other offered what all romance readers want, swoony worthy romance. I loved this couple so much and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. They each had their strengths and weaknesses but together they complemented each other beautifully.

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I loved this book. Claire Raye work amazingly well together and I can’t wait to read more of their work. If you’re looking for a sweet Hollywood romance, then be sure to check out Beautiful Secret.
