It’s been almost a year since eighteen-year-old Ella Rodriguez was in a car accident that left her crippled, scarred, and without a mother. After a very difficult recovery, she’s been uprooted across the country and forced into the custody of a father that abandoned her when she was a young child. If Ella wants to escape her father’s home and her awful new stepfamily, she must convince her doctors that she’s capable, both physically and emotionally, of living on her own. The problem is, she’s not ready yet. The only way she can think of to start healing is by reconnecting with the one person left in the world who’s ever meant anything to her—her anonymous Internet best friend, Cinder.

Hollywood sensation Brian Oliver has a reputation for being trouble. There’s major buzz around his performance in his upcoming film The Druid Prince, but his management team says he won’t make the transition from teen heartthrob to serious A-list actor unless he can prove he’s left his wild days behind and become a mature adult. In order to douse the flames on Brian’s bad-boy reputation, his management stages a fake engagement for him to his co-star Kaylee. Brian isn’t thrilled with the arrangement—or his fake fiancée—but decides he’ll suffer through it if it means he’ll get an Oscar nomination. Then a surprise email from an old Internet friend changes everything.

I LOVED this book! I have read a few others by Kelly and this book drew me in from the Prologue! What made me mad was that I read the prologue and had to go somewhere and after reading that short bit I wanted to keep reading…but I couldn’t. So I stayed up late and finished it the next morning and now I want more!

Ella and Cinder are best friends, but Cinder has a secret that he is keeping from Ella – he isn’t just any guy, he is an actor and a famous one at that. They have some ups and downs during the book and you wonder if there is hope for a relationship between them with everything Ella has gone through and what Cinder’s life is like at the moment.

I think my heart was in my throat several times just waiting to see what was going to happen next. I had many questions about Ella’s dad and where he was while she was growing up, and was very glad to see that answered later in the book.

If you have never read any of Kelly’s books, definitely pick this one up.
