Happy Easter! Happy Sunday!
“Hollywood Hero“, written by Madelle Morgan, is a Contemporary Romance, the third book in the Hollywood in Muskoka, that was published on February 2021.
I want to thank Rachel, at Rachel’s Random Resources, and Madelle Morgan for the eCopy of this book and for allowing me to join in the fun and being a part of the blog tour with my honest review of the book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
Unrequited love is hell on earth
Personal assistant Wendy Davila is in love with her boss, Halden Armstrong, megastar of the Apollo superhero film franchise. But she can’t compete with the succession of stick-thin blond beauties he’s caught and released. Or can she? When Halden asks Wendy to accompany him on a fishing trip to Muskoka, it’s her chance to remake her dark-haired, curvy Latina self into his ideal woman and cast her hook for Halden.
Can he trust her?
Halden has been burned by love. The last thing he wants is a woman like his ex who faked it until she landed him. Wendy is special, and the private trip is an opportunity to explore his feelings for her. However, the Greek god has an Achilles’ heel. Can he trust Wendy with a secret that could ruin his career? And will she still care for him when she learns the truth?
When Apollo falls off his pedestal, Wendy must decide if the man she adores is a keeper.

About the Author
Growing up, Madelle enjoyed nineteen summers at her grandparents’ cottage on Georgian Bay in the beautiful District of Muskoka, Ontario, Canada, named by National Geographic Traveler magazine as one of their top 20 Best of the World Must-see Places.
Muskoka is Canada’s summer playground for many wealthy families and Hollywood celebrities. The Hollywood in Muskoka series updates the upstairs/downstairs trope: successful people in the film industry on vacation fall for service providers.
Madelle lives in Ottawa, Canada’s capital, with her husband and their labradoodle Raven. She dreams of owning a waterfront cottage. Or at least a pool.

Most of you know that I try to read books in a series by order, yet sometimes I do read books out of order, and this is one of those cases. And now I’m quite curious about the precious stories in the series.
This book was quite different from what I thought. First it begins with a cast. It tells us the names of the characters, what their job is and their age. That by itself is unique to have in a book. Then we have a Playlist and, although I don’t usually listen to music while reading, I gave it at try for this book and it was fun actually. These two elements end up working well for the entire theme of the book, since it’s about movies and people in that industry.
In this story we follow Wendy and Halden. Wendy is Halden’s PA, but there is more. Although I didn’t connect entirely with her, I could understand some of her points and I still had some empathy for her. Halden was the one I liked more at first since he didn’t seem like the usual actor character we see in books. But I won’t say my thought as I read, about neither of them, because I don’t want to give out any spoilers.
They both have feelings for one another, and I liked that we are reading about two people that already have a relationship and background. That’s something I liked because having the main characters knowing each other way before the present of the storyline, is a breath of fresh air and makes me wonder about their past together.
Of course, in a romance novel there is always drama and unexpected changes, which kept things moving and interesting. There were also some themes in the book that I enjoyed learning as I read.
Overall, I enjoyed it and I’m curious about the previous books and what else is the author going to give us in this series and group of characters.
