Onto every diva’s backside, a little wood must fall.Lights, Camera, Book 2
Hollywood actress Heather Wainwright was looking forward to a long, relaxing break before starting her next shoot. Except her assistant volunteered her for L.A.’s annual 24 Hour Plays.
Nervous about doing a good job for such a worthy charity, Heather falls back on “diva” mode, a defense mechanism that always carries her through. Until she encounters something that really gets on her nerves—a lowly carpenter whose Norse god eyes pierce right through her.
Highly sought-after production designer Seth Rafferty has little patience for A-listers with superior attitudes, which is why his attraction to Heather is absurd. Yet, sensing vulnerability beneath her screen-queen act, he lets her assumptions play out.
After the wrap party, Heather awakens with little memory of the night before—except that Seth gave her the best orgasm of her life, then disappeared. When he shows up on the set of her next movie, she winds up to give him a piece of her mind…and Seth shows her just how stinging hot “chemistry” can get.
Warning: Contains an outwardly snobby actress with a good heart, a delicious carpenter with a power drill, some much-deserved spanking, and an appropriately consensual—if tipsy—orgasm, as well as sex at an inappropriate time of the month.

Ashley’s 4.5 Star Review!!
Heather Wainwright is a Hollywood Diva to say the least. She has her own set of rules to abide by as an actress, all of which concern her and her image. These include who she will or will not date based on what his job is. Heather has worked hard to leave her old life behind, so she will stop at nothing to make sure she is successful both in and out of the public eye. This doesn’t mean that she doesn’t try to give back whenever possible, as she is always volunteering for the 24 hour plays charity.
Seth Rafferty didn’t start off the best in life, but he has worked hard to get where he is today. Being a Production Designer, he is at the top of his career ladder, and even up for nominations for award season. After exposing his life before becoming successful with his fiancé, she leaves him stating that she could never have kids with him. Because of this, he vows that if he were to ever get into another relationship that the woman would have to love him for him, and not his career.
At the 24 hour plays, Heather meets Seth and immediately thinks that he is beneath her, assuming that he is a blue-collared carpenter. Even though she is drawn to Seth, she thinks that there can be nothing between them because of his occupation. Seth does not correct her in her assumption of him being a carpenter, and hates the way she puts on a diva façade to prove she better than him. He hates that he is so attracted to this A-list princess, until he sees vulnerability in her eyes. After that, Seth just wants to get to know Heather better to see what her story is.
The sexual tension grows between the two of them after the wrap party for the plays, and Seth ends up taking Heather to her room. She thought that was the last time she would ever see Seth, until he shows up at her next movie set. Seth keeps up the lie of being a carpenter, only to get to know Heather better and to see if she could really accept him for who he is. With the lies building up, will Heather ever know who Seth really is and be able to forgive him for lying to her?
“Tomorrow, he could lose it all. Tonight, though, he had everything.”
So this series just keeps getting better. I thought that I loved Micah from Take Two, but I hate to say it, Seth blew him out of the water. I didn’t like that he kept lying to Heather, but I can understand why he did it, I mean who wants to be judged by what they do for work? Heather started off as a wicked diva bitch, which was a defense mechanism, but turned into such a strong person. This book is totally worth the read and can be read as a stand-alone, but you do get introduced to some of the characters in book one, Take Two. This book unquestionably gets 4.5 out of 5 stars.
