“Micah Preston is Hollywood’s #1 sex symbol.”
Sex Symbol is the second Laurelin Paige book I have read in a month and I very much enjoyed both of them. Her writing is impeccable and has the ability to keep me fully engaged from start to finish. The plot and dialogue was fun, sexy and easy-going. This in turn made it a thoroughly enjoyable second-chance love story about a famous Hollywood sex symbol and a camera assistant who reunite, and discover the fire between them is far from burnt out…
“Of course, there was Maddie. He’d just met her and, hell, he knew hardly anything about her, but his attraction to her ran deep. He was certain that if he saw her again he’d want to see her again and again and again. She couldn’t be just a fuck fling.”
Sex Symbol centers around two characters, Maddie and Micah. They meet one night at Maddie’s graduation and instantly sparks ignite. There was such a powerful force pulling them towards each other and the chemistry and attraction was electrifying and sizzled right off the pages.
Due to certain circumstances it wasn’t meant to be and they went their separate ways. As a result, Micah avoids serious relationships and decides to focus on his career and make it big in Hollywood. Maddie takes her own path as a camera assistant.
“No strings, no burdens – it was definitely the way to go. Even though he sometimes yearned for a more substantial relationship, Micah could be happy as a playboy.”
Fast forward seven years, Maddie and Micah are bought back together again. Are all the old feelings between them dead and buried or will seeing each other bring up all their old feelings? Are their feelings for each other even stronger the second time around…?
Micha thought he would never see Maddie again and to say he was pleasantly surprised was an understatement. If you’re anything like me and love a great alpha hero, then I suggest you meet Micah. He was everything I imagined and more; a cocky, arrogant bad boy and a total playa with a real soft side… and… oh so sexy.
“You’re going to break me,” she whispered. But she was wrong. “You’re the one who’s going to break me.”
“She would. He knew it now. She was going to break him into so many pieces he wouldn’t be able to recognize himself. And he was totally looking forward to it.”
If you’re anything like me and love a beautiful, strong, sassy, but sweet heroine then I’m sure you will fall in love with Maddie as much as I did. She held all the attributes of the perfect heroine for me. She had developed a successful career as a camera assistant and lands herself probably the most important job of her career; both personally and professionally. She becomes the camera assistant of Micah’s newest Hollywood blockbuster. Will she be immune to Micah’s charms or will she give in to her intense attraction towards the Hollywood heart-throb and end up in the place she was trying to avoid… his bed?
The only downer for me was that I wished it was written in dual POV rather than the third person but that’s just me. All in all I really enjoyed Sex Symbol and would recommend this story to anyone who loves their Hollywood /second chance love stories. It was a fun, easy to read story with great characters and a well developed plot that is sure to keep you fully captivated throughout.

USA Today and New York Times Bestselling Author Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender.
