The Movie Star is a romantic comedy novel written by Amanda Lewis. After being rejected for a loan by the local bank to build an ambitious restaurant, twenty-eight-year-old restaurant owner Simone Lafitte is determined to come up with the funds to chase her dreams. She discovers the perfect opportunity when Hollywood action-movie star Chris Powers returns to the town of Goodwater Ranch after a gap of ten long years. Still haunted by their encounter at her sister's wedding all those years ago, Simone gathers her courage and visits Chris to ask for a loan. However, she is repulsed by the man he has become. Meanwhile, Chris instantly becomes enamored with Simone's beauty and attitude to life. As sparks rekindle between the two, can Simone take a leap of faith and trust Chris?
Author Amanda Lewis weaves an absorbing yarn of star-crossed lovers filled with romance and humor that is bound to charm its way into your heart. The Movie Star is the story of two people from vastly different backgrounds who find kindred spirits in each other after ten years of an unforgettable encounter. With relatable characters who are easy to root for, the narrative keeps you glued to the pages with a seamless blend of snappy dialogue, wit, and palpable chemistry between the two main protagonists. Chris and Simone's relationship provides the narrative thrust to the story. Apart from the two, Simone's friends and family also play a vital role in the narrative. I thoroughly enjoyed The Movie Star, and I'll recommend it to anyone who loves romantic comedies.
