Publisher's Summary

Breaking Hollywood is a hot and hilarious stand-alone romance from New York Times best-selling author Samantha Towle....

It wasn't supposed to be like this.... I wasn't supposed to be boyfriendless, homeless, and jobless at 28. And I most definitely wasn't supposed to hit Hollywood's resident bad boy Gabriel Evans with my car and break his foot.

Now I'm stuck in his apartment, taking care of him while he's incapacitated. Living with the hottest guy in Hollywood, who I've had a crush on forever, doesn't sound like a chore, right? Wrong.

Gabriel Evans is rude and crude and drinks way too much, and as soon as his foot is healed I'm out of here.

So why do I keep forgetting to check the classifieds? And keep getting flustered when I see him shirtless? Breaking Hollywood wasn't part of the plan. But neither was falling in love with him.

"Breaking Hollywood is romantic comedy at its best. It's laugh-out-loud funny, incredibly sexy, sweetly heartfelt and unadulterated fun.... You'll be smitten with everything about this entertaining, steamy, and feel-good romance." (USA Today's Happy Ever After)

Holy Swoon! FANTASTIC!!!!

Samantha Towle NEVER disappoints. From laugh out loud moments to gut dipping heartbreak. This book has all the feelings a romance novel should have.
Christian Rummel and Brooke Bloomingdale delivered a performance that I could listen to again and again. They had me eating out of the palm of their hands!!
This is going to the top of my favorites list. In fact, I already ordered the paperback to add to my shelf!!
Seriously Amazing Read. The writing is so quick and catchy. The dialogue between the two main characters will have you doubled over in laughter. It's sexy, charming, witty, swoonworthy and funny as can be!!!

This book totally made my day!!!
Highly Recommend!!

PERFECT.. A WICKEDLY FUNNY RIOTOUS ROM/COM

While the Publisher’s Summary gives you a brief outline of this book’s plot it just can’t describe the smooth quick-witted banter, the hilarious laugh out loud quips, the feisty chemistry between the hero and heroine and the very addictive slow-build of enemies to lovers. It’s a well-paced feel-good rom/com with dry humor, a bit of heartache and heat.. and it’ll leave you seeking more from this talented author.

Gabriel Evans is a drool-worthy, broody, cocky, bad boy movie star who can get any woman he wants, Ava Simms has recently been dumped by her boyfriend, just been sacked and is about to be homeless.. so total opposites. But Fate has spectacularly brought them together thanks to a smartcar and a broken foot and, while they bicker, throw barbs and verbally spark and spar with each other during many hilarious run ins, behind the scenes their attraction and sexual chemistry builds.

I’ve never listened to better lol smoothly written banter, Gabe and Ava are great characters, the sexy times (when they eventually err... come) are hot and the inevitable angst to their relationship is heartfelt because Gabe has a serious secret which turns the emotional tide for a while. This addictive dual POV rom/com mainly took place between Gabe and Ava in his penthouse with a few secondary characters appearing towards the end.. but who needs secondary characters when there’s Ava’s pampered pigmy goat called Gucci.

Worth a credit? Oh it so is.. Gabe’s stubborn and Ava’s a sassy spitfire, I loved being a fly on the wall witnessing their amusing antics and this perfectly paced riot of a journey captured me from the start. A good balance of fun and feels.. and the narration was great too.

Laugh your head off and melt your heart great read.

This is a great listen. The story is fun and engaging and heart-warming in equal parts. The goat drama just adds to the fun and the evolution of Gabriel and Ava’s relationship is so special to be a part of. The narration was spot-on and Christian Rummel does an awesome job of the bad boy you can’t help but secretly love even when he’s being a jerk. Love Samantha Towle’s books and this is another in a line of great stuff from her.

Great Hollywood bad boy meets sweet girl romance

This was a great romance story. The author did a great job with the characters and the story. There were time when I laughed out loud and times when I teared up. The characters, Ava (Speedy) and Gabe (Hoppy), were so entertaining. I did get a little bored with the setting. Most of the book they were in his apartment. Ava was a strong, positive character. I really liked this book and the narrators were excellent. They did a great job with the characters and the story.

Love Love This Story!!!

Although the story was simple but it was written so cleverly. I am a new fan of Samantha Twole.
The characters were quirky, funny and lovable.
Brooke and Christian did a fantastic job of bringing this story to life. Bravo!

Fun Fun Fun and oh my, Christian Rummel!!

Breaking Hollywood was my first read by Samantha Towle. The story was full of fun banter and chemistry. Brooke Bloomingdale did a great job as female lead but Christian Rummel was the reason I bought this book in the first place.

After reading/listening to Christian in LJ Shen's Sinner of Saint series I am hooked on Christian Rummel! He delivers flawlessly delivers humor and his hot steamy voice makes me want to beg for him to do more romance!

Romance readers will really like this book.

DNF

Got as far as Chapter 14 and just couldn't listen anymore. So far most of the 'story' is talking about their private parts. As far as the actual 'story,' if you put the two main characters versions of the 'accident' - it makes no sense. I'm turning this back in and don't think I'll be reading anything else from this author,

Entertaining.

This is a good listen, very entertaining. Some parts had me rolling my eyes, but overall I enjoyed it. It’s a good filler book while waiting for your credit

Loveed it

Pigmy goat, running over your celebrity crush foot, getting fired on same day, somehow coincidentally living with said celebrity as he recovers and you find footing. what couldn't brew here. ooh I love this story and amidst the playful banter it's heartbreaking but its beautiful too and has resilience. and gosh is it funny.
