Ellie Foster lives and breathes normal. She’s the responsible one, the girl everyone depends on.

A chance encounter between the pair leads to a deal that will change their lives.

Ellie needs money for her family. Jason needs a girlfriend for the world tour of the final Planet Gazers movie. It’s a match made in Hollywood heaven.

But what happens when the lines between their act and reality become blurred? Can they figure out what is real and what’s fake?
Until You by Bridie Blake

Until YouLight and quirky, UNTIL YOU by Bridie Blake belongs at the beach or by the pool, like an added ray of funshine in the contemporary romance department!

Jason Holden is the latest flavor in Hollywood stardom and he has the reputation to prove it. How better to tame the wild man/child with too much money and too many good looks than to find him a girlfriend to tag along with him?

Ellie Foster is the go to girl in everyone’s lives. Her family is also in trouble financially, so when Fate put Jason in her path and opportunity was just a phone call away, Ellie made the call that would change her summer and possibly her life, forever.

Fast, fun, with a smattering of angst and Ellie, the brightest star in this romantic tale. Bridie Blake did a wonderful job of bringing us into the celluloid world of movies, smiling faces and all of the games people play. The true breath of fresh air is Ellie. I’m pretty sure adorable describes her character to a tee!

Now, whether this is a young adult read, Jason does have a manwhore rep to beat down. That said, nothing is blatant, but maybe this is better suited to an older crowd of young adults. The romance between Ellie and Jason is certainly a slow build, and again, just getting to that first kiss is almost painful!

All in all, I did love the lightness, the trials and tribulations of avoiding admitting their feelings and Hey, it’s summer, the reading should be easy and breezy! Go for it!
