Here are the three most common lieswomen hear in Hollywood: You're the most beautiful woman I've ever seen. I'd like to put you in my next movie. I think I'm falling in love with you. If anyone has heard it all, it's Hannah. As the daughter of celebrated actor Leo Fairchild, she can easily recite the bald-faced lies you'll hear out of the mouth of almost any A-list leading man. When Leo has a fatal heart attack while making love to a nineteen-year-old starlet, Hannah's world goes out of orbit. Not only has Leo's conniving fourth wife frozen her trust fund, but the grieving widow has also been having an affair with Hannah's indie producer boyfriend Faced with a credit card bill that rivals the national debt, Hannah is forced to put her one passion -- astronomy -- on hold while she takes the job of personal assistant to international hottie Louis Trollope. Louis is just as egotistical -- and yes, irresistible -- as her father had been. Which is why she's determined to keep him -- and his super-model girlfriend, bad boy entourage, and over-sexed agent -- at arm's length. Besides, she's falling in love with his best friend, screenwriter Mick Bradshaw. But Louis loves a challenge. And he's decided that convincing Hannah that he loves her is the role of a lifetime.… (mehr)

From Publishers Weekly
Despite promises to distinguish between "the Hollywood you know" and the Hollywood her leading lady knows, Brown's debut novel confirms just what you suspect about celebrity and unfolds with all the inevitability of a romantic comedy. Hannah Fairchild is the levelheaded daughter of Hollywood glitterati, more interested, we're told, in astronomy than any other kind of stargazing. But her hobby mostly serves as an abundant source of puns, as she's reduced to working as a personal assistant to British heartthrob Louis Trollope when her famous father dies and her stepmother freezes her trust fund. The wildly egotistical star keeps Hannah on her toes ordering Zone-kosher foods and arranging his trysts. Brown captures the humor of working for a megalomaniac: an offhand remark from Hannah, "Don't go believing your own press clippings," sends her boss into a panic. "Why? What have you read? What have you heard?" A love triangle between Hannah, her boss and his best friend Mick Bradshaw gives the book the tension that drives this well-paced, entertaining story forward. Unfortunately, Hannah is inconsistent as a character and a narrator, wavering between savvy and naïveté, between embracing the spotlight and hiding behind the scenes.

This was a fun book to read. However, it infuriated me the way Hannah was so STUPID in dealing with Louis. Why she put up with him and his crap is beyond me. The book did show me that I have no desire at all to become a PA in the glamourous world of Hollywood. I'll stick to being the one with the PA!
