Publisher's Summary

Wannabe actress Dani Steele's résumé resembles a cautionary tale on how not to be famous. She's pushing thirty and stuck in a dead-end insurance job, and her relationship status is holding at uncommitted. With unbearably perfect sisters and a mother who won't let her forget it, Dani has two go-tos for consolation: maple scones and a blog in which she pours her heart out to her celebrity idol.

He's the man her father never was, no boyfriend will ever be - and not so impossible a dream as one might think. When Dani learns that he's planning a fund-raising event where the winning amateur athlete gets a walk-on in his new film, she decides to trade pastries and self-doubt for running shoes and a sexy British trainer with adorable knees.

But when Dani's plot takes an unexpected twist, she realizes that her happy ending might have to be improvised - and that proving herself to her idol isn't half as important as proving something to herself.

This is a work of fiction. While Dwayne Johnson p/k/a The Rock is a real person, events relating to him in the book are a product of the author's imagination. Mr. Johnson is not affiliated with this book, and has not endorsed it or participated in any manner in connection with this book.

Smart and Funny

This story is smart and funny, witty and touching and completely entertaining.

Dani, Danielle Steele-with an e, has been obsessed with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson ever since she was a young girl. She starts training for a competition who’s prize is a chance to meet and work with The Rock.

“So you need to make a commitment, right here, right now. Everyone has a story. You just have to decide how you want the next chapter to be written.”

Dani observes and records everything and the only thing she doesn’t see is just how special she is.

Dear Dwayne, With Love is a marvelous slow burn (close door, fade to black but not lacking in swoon) romance.

“Seriously, what is the point of a relationship anyway? You find someone you don’t want to murder, and you marry them because you’re afraid your biological clock is going to leak battery acid all over the stash of eggs you were born with?”

Awesome narration!! I’m glad I chose to listen to this one!!

Great “summer read (or should I say listen)”

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and a few times laughed out loud while listening while on treadmill at gym. The performance was fabulous and I loved DJ’s voice.

A must listen for anyone who’s lost their Dad

I was a bit tentative picking this one up as my knowledge of wrestlers is somewhat limited, but this story and the characters charmed me into continuing to listen and I’m so glad I did. The narrator’s voices for the various actors is lovely (even the beautiful English Marco!) and definitely added to the story.

Utterly loved it and now love DJ too ;)

Great read so relatable

This is not a book I would usually pick up but I have A book club at work and it was suggested. Really good book, great plot, and extremely relatable. I have told many friends and family to read it.

Slow

Gosh it was slow and predictable! Could have removed ten chapters and then the story would have moved along.
