In Bloom
book 2 - tba

My name is Olivia Bloom and I. Am. Free.

I left for LA with everything I owned piled into my old Volkswagen and dreams of becoming a costume designer. Little did I know I’d wind up designing for a lingerie company—yeah, not sure how I landed this gig—and taken under the wing of two young Hollywood insiders. The fashion shows and parties were great, but life really got exciting when the seriously hottest lead singer of my favorite band started to fall for me. 

How does someone like me, an ordinary girl from Pittsburgh, wind up in the arms of the world’s sexiest rock star—surrounded by celebrities, fashion, and music—and not be eaten alive? Berkeley is everything I've ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, but the paparazzi, the tabloids, the rumors, it's all getting a bit too crazy. My life has become every girl’s dream come true, if only I don’t blink and lose it all… 

Zombie sighting:

I glaze my eyes over and allow my jaw to hang open in a state of tool zombie awe.

My two-bits:

Cute tweets preface each chapter to provide a chuckle.

This nice and sweet romance takes you behind the scenes into the worlds of fashion (lingerie) and celebrities (rock band).

The couple presented is adorable and their romance story includes plenty of "awwww" moments.

Although this is the first in a series, I felt the story was good enough as a standalone.
