Blog Tour Review & Giveaway: Adapted for Film

Adapted for Film by Stacey Rourke
Genre: Romance
Source: I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review as part of Xpresso Book Tours.
Purchase: Amazon
Synopsis: Aubrey Evans is living every author’s dream; her sizzling romance novel is being turned into a blockbuster film. She would be celebrating this momentous event, if she wasn’t busy fighting over every tiny production detail with the maddeningly cavalier director, Kole Camden.

When news of their heated rivalry hits the gossip columns, drastic measures must be taken to save their sinking project. In an elaborate PR hoax, she is publicly linked to Greyson Meyers, the swoon-worthy star of her movie. A whirl-wind love affair is staged for the couple to mirror the steamy chapters of her own books.

Can the introverted author resist the charms of Hollywood’s sexiest leading man? Or will love find her in the City of Angels?

My Review

Adapted for Film was a cute read. It was playful and made me giggle quite a bit. I always love a romance novel that can get me to laugh. Those are usually my favorite kinds.

Aubrey is a likeable enough character, one I even related to at times. I also enjoyed the minor characters a good deal as well. Kole was swoon worthy and cute and I loved her best friend Tandy the most. Even though I did like the irresistible actor Greyson, he was a very typical character without any unique charms. I should also note that there were a few good steamy scenes between the characters, an important factor when reading/rating a romance novel.

SometimesAdapted for Film had a few too many silly stupid moments, but that didn't cloud the fact that it was a joy to read. One of my favorite things about this novel is its format. The whole story is pretty much told by Aubrey to a reporter during an interview. My other favorite aspect of the book was getting to read about the whole book to movie adaption process. As an avid reader who can get frustrated when movies based on books turn bad, I found this part of the novel rather entertaining and to my liking.

Although Adapted for Film had pretty much all the same romance plot points I've read before, it was still a good entertaining read.
