Readers of Emma Chase are sure to fall for bestselling author Cassie Mae’s All About Love series! In No Interest in Love,Hollywood’s hottest young actor hits the road to chase his big break—and discovers a leading lady where he least expected.
When Jace Carver snags a minor part in his buddy’s zombie flick, he suddenly starts getting noticed all over the place. Even Hollywood megastar Carletta Ocean—known for her extensive “research” with her male co-stars—wants Jace for her new rom-com. The role could be a game-changer . . . if Jace nails the audition.
As Jace’s agent, Shaylene Kwak is all business, and isn’t about to let her favorite client blow this opportunity. Since their college years, Shay has been immune to Jace’s charm and rock-hard body. But long hours in close company have a way of wearing down even the best defenses, and when their platonic teasing turns into serious flirting, Jace and Shay are no longer able to resist what’s been right in front of them the entire time.
Shay knows Jace’s love-’em-and-leave-’em history with women. She’s not about to be just another notch in his belt. And it’s true, Jace has never wanted more than a one-night stand—until now. But at the end of the line, he’s got a choice: sleep with Carletta and seal the deal, or risk his career for a shot at true love with Shay.
One thing that needs to be pointed out, there's a lot of references to the show How I Met Your Mother. I have never seen it, so I didn't understand any of those bits.
The story itself was amusing, and I laughed a lot. There were a few times I clinched my chest because my heart was hurting. Mostly though, it felt a little too cheesy. I'm not saying I disliked Jace and Shay because they were adorable. It just felt a bit too forced.
Sadly to say, I was disappointed within the first bit of the book. Finding out the female love interest is Korean, but the girl on the cover is absolutely not any flavor of Asian was upsetting. I recognize that this is the fault of Random House, and I was offended they would white wash the cover. That they would do this to an author I'm quite fond of felt like a betrayal to me.
One thing I really did like was how the subject of Jace's dyslexia was handled. It's a topic that I don't feel is addressed enough, and I think it was awesome of Cassie Mae to show how someone can succeed even with those struggles. I was also impressed with how Shay approached it.
There's a character in here, Milo, he's awesome. I kinda wished there was more about him. He's probably my favorite.
All and all, the story was cute and I did enjoy it. I disliked the cover choice, because Random House is lying to the potential readers. And I thought the characters were pretty darn spiffy.
