Carter Samuel Groveson. 

His name is on the lips of every woman in the country. An actor plucked from obscurity to star in the most anticipated movie of the century, everyone wants a piece of him. 
Except her. 

Millie St. John isn’t ready to settle down. Not for her family and definitely not for a man. A year ago, Millie ran as far and fast away from Sam as she could because she didn’t want to risk ruining their friendship. 

Now he has reappeared in her life to rekindle that friendship as a way to keep him tethered to reality, and she’s unable to say no. But forces are gathering to catapult Sam’s star to success, and there’s no room left in that plan for Millie.

This book wasn't all that believable to me.  Granted, I don't understand "Hollywood" life, but what Sam did to Millie, to further his career, is unforgivable.  And how he did it... was just cruel to me.  Sam just rubbed me the wrong way.  He was a pushover to his agent and a coward with his feelings. Actually the more I write this review, the more and more I dislike Sam.  

Also, I didn't think felt completed to me.  Millie just seems to forgive Sam without any explanation of why he did what he did... idk 

This just didn't work for me.
