Josh Chester loves being a Hollywood bad boy, coasting on his good looks, his parties, his parents’ wealth, and the occasional modeling gig. But his laid-back lifestyle is about to change. To help out his best friend, Liam, he joins his hit teen TV show, Daylight Falls … opposite Vanessa Park, the one actor immune to his charms. (Not that he’s trying to charm her, of course.) Meanwhile, his drama-queen mother blackmails him into a new family reality TV show, with Josh in the starring role. Now that he’s in the spotlight—on everyone’s terms but his own—Josh has to decide whether a life as a superstar is the one he really wants.
Vanessa Park has always been certain about her path as an actor, despite her parents’ disapproval. But with all her relationships currently in upheaval, she’s painfully uncertain about everything else. When she meets her new career handler, Brianna, Van is relieved to have found someone she can rely on, now that her BFF, Ally, is at college across the country. But as feelings unexpectedly evolve beyond friendship, Van’s life reaches a whole new level of confusing. And she’ll have to choose between the one thing she’s always loved … and the person she never imagined she could.
Dahlia Adler has become one of my favorite authors out there. Under the Lights was such a breath of fresh air, with a teaspoon of intense. I loved every moment she wrote and every interaction between the characters. They spoke to me individually and their emotions, their thoughts, reached me in a powerful way. It’s everything you’ve wanted- plus ten times better.
Josh and Van were so easy to like and so much easier to love. I completely fell in love with them and couldn’t stop myself from wanting more after being done.
- Josh. Maaaan- Josh. He was fun. And he was a cupcake. Beneath all his layers, and all his “Hollywood-bad-boy”, Josh was a cinnamon cupcake- incredibly sweet. I loved his development and I’m so glad I got to see (read) it. He’s a jerkbutt and I love it.
- Van: I liked her storyline SO MUCH. Vanessa (beauty queen Van) was spectacular. The journey she goes through from the very beginning of the story to the very end is amazing and she’s one of those characters you just wished you could be friends with and also be like.
- Bri: What can I say about her other than “Jesus, please marry me?” She’s so fun! Before you realize it, you crave her scenes really badly and want to keep reading about her and Van. Dahlia Adler writes the best characters in the world.
This was the first f/f book I’ve read and I WANT MORE. I WANT MORE OF THESE AWESOME CUTE INTERACTIONS BETWEEN TWO VERY CUTE GIRLS. 1000% of the time I was like, “Hot damn this is so cute, but also really hot ,plus really really amazing.” I never thought it would be this swoony and also very very hot? Dahlia Adler please write twenty thousand books with f/f otp- really all kind of otp’s.
My heart belongs to this book and Dahlia Adler and I can’t wait for more books from her.
Now here’s a little something extra for your viewing pleasure. 😉
