I never dreamed I’d meet my celebrity crush while stealing every single pair of my best friend’s pants.

Trust me, my life is not that wild. In fact, the most excitement I usually get is running my fan-favorite Insta thirst account featuring butt-tastic pics of Hollywood superhero Carter Hayes. So, imagine my shock when, in the middle of the cruise ship hallway, I realize the guy whose shirt I'm stuffing slacks inside of is Carter disguised as a tourist. How I manage not to faint dead away, I've got no clue.

When word leaks that Carter might be on board, he asks me to help him maintain his cover. There’s no way I’m gonna say no to that. I just don't share that I’m the anonymous woman behind the fan account that reported sighting him onboard. No biggie. Right?

However, when things between us go from friendly to hot to OMG-I-can’t-keep-my-clothes-on-around-him, all I can do is hope he never discovers my secret. You see, somewhere along the way, Carter went from an untouchable movie star to the man I’m falling for.

Whooops. Totally read this out of order. Didn't realize it was book 3. Luckily this can totally be read as a stand-alone. 

We follow Aubrey and Carter who meet on a cruise. Carter Hayes just wants to get away and be a normal guy for just a few days. He's a Hollywood star who plays in a superhero but he's feeling burnt out. Aubrey is a superfan of Carter and recognizes him right away. When word leaks out that Carter might be on board, he asks Aubrey to help him maintain his cover. She says yes...of course....even though she was the one who is behind the anonymous fan account that reported the sighting of him onboard.

This was a fun, light read. Perfect for summer or rainy days. It made me want to go on a cruise even though I am not a fan of cruises.

There is insta-lust for sure but it worked for them. 

The feelings snuck up them and that worked for them too. 

I liked Carter and Aubrey. They were for sure made for each other. And how cute that a superfan gets to be with her celebrity crush???? JEALOUS!

My only issue was how quickly and easily they resolved their issues. Granted I do not think the issues were THAT bad. SURE she should have told him it was her who made the leak BEFORE they become a pretend thing and then a real thing. So he for sure over-reacted. I get being mad for....a couple of hours? But get over yourself sir. And she caved too soon and forgave him too soon. Booooooo. 

Besides that, I liked this a lot. It was cute and fun and for sure worth it. It does standalone okay, but now I am curious about the first 2 of the series. 

In the end, I'll give this 3 stars.
