Blog Tour Kickoff and Giveaway of Hollywood Hearts Book 1 - If I loved You by Jean Joachim

If I Loved You (Hollywood Hearts, #1)


Does love always mean total truth? Successfully shunning the limelight was one way for Megan Davis to keep her family secret. The press intruded on her life when her twin brother, Mark, became the star quarterback for the Delaware Demons. Disrespectful of tabloid superstars, financial advisor, Meg, was shocked when she was tapped to launch a celebrity division in the prestigious investment firm, Dillon & Weed. The biggest surprise: the charisma of her first client.
Gorgeous, magnetic movie star, Chaz Duncan, wary of women who wanted to bask in his fame or sell his secrets to the media, valued privacy above all else. Would attractive Megan Davis, his new financial advisor charm the truth from him or would he continue his high profile but lonely existence to keep his secret safe? Jealousy, deceit and scandal threaten two careers and the quest for true love and trust in this roller-coaster-ride contemporary romance.

Teaser 1

 “Okay, okay. What was that stuff with Brielle?” Megan put her hand on his arm.
“What stuff? She was flirting with me, so I flirted back. Fans love that.”
“You didn’t have to be so convincing.”
“Jealous?” He cocked an eyebrow at her.
“Not at all.” She sat up straighter on the seat.
She’s jealous. “You were…gotta love that.” He leaned over and kissed her cheek. “Don’t worry, she’s not my type.” He grinned at her.
“And what type is she?” Meg huffed.
“The flashy and obvious type. You’re much more my style.” He ran a finger down her cheek.
“Oh?” She blushed slightly at his touch.
“The demure, smart…sexy type.” He kissed the back of her hand and watched her cheeks turn a becoming rosy shade.

Teaser 2

    They stood up and joined hands. Chaz eased her close to him, his hands glided down to her bottom, and squeezed. Megan yelped. His lips found hers. They were so close together even a piece of paper wouldn’t slide between them. She wrapped her arms around his neck and relaxed against him. As he increased his passion, excitement began to build inside her. He pressed closer. Feeling his growing erection only made her want him more.

Angie Review:

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
I actual rating is a 3.75 but I rounded up.

I met this wonderfully kind author while at a book convention.  She is so warm and friendly that when she reached out to me after the convention, I had to read these books.  The blurbs of the books seemed "up my alley".  Who DOESN'T follow the heart breaks and loves of celebrities.

Chaz is the celebrity that everyone wants and everyone assumes (ya know you should'nt do that right???) is a mega playboy.  He meets Megan/Meg to talk to her about investing his money.  He is totally taken with her and had to convince her to go out on dates.  Meg has a famous brother and she wants NOOOOO part of a celebrity relationship.

Well the couple feel an attraction.  Meg is so insecure that she cant believe this hottie really wants her.  Chaz is sooo broken he cant believe someone as kind and caring actually likes him for him and not his money.

Well the two end up falling in L.....wait not the L word...friends with benefits.  Neither will admit their love for the other out of fear.  When they finally do, they are arguing and I had to laugh about it.  The couple is happy and trying to figure out the logistics of how to make it work when...grrrr....the conflict of the story hits.  a co-worker frames Meg and sets off a bunch of bad press for Chaz which is turns threatens his career.  Poor Chaz has to decided love or a career.  Poor Meg has to decide Love for me or let him go for his own career.

I enjoyed the story and the overall plot.  I am very excited to meet and read about Quinn, Chaz's best friend, in book 2.

About the Author:

I didn't start writing until about 17 years ago. I had two small children and used to get up at 5:30am to write for two hours before they got up.
No one believed I could be a writer...least of all me...but I was driven to do it anyway. Like an addict I was compelled to write.

I started out writing 500 word articles on advertising, business and parenting, based on my own experience. Lo and behold, after my first article failed, everything else I wrote got published.

This was exciting and encouraged me to attempt my first book, "Beyond the Bake Sale, the Ultimate School Fund-Raising Book."

I got an agent from a friend of mine and she found a top publisher, St. Martin's Press, with a fabulous editor, Elizabeth Beier and I was off.

After six more non-fiction books were published, I tried my hand at fiction. One cold day last January, while I was recuperating from loss and illness, Callie and Mac landed in my head and told me their story. I flew to my computer to get it all down, just the way they were telling me.

"Now and Forever, a Love Story" was born. The characters have no resemblance to anyone I know and, least of all, to me. They are completely formed total strangers that leaped out of my head and onto the page.

It was a wonderful experience, listening to their story. I fell in love with them. After the book was done, I couldn't let them go. They were kind enough to bring another character to the forefront, Danny Maine who told me his story and "Now and Forever 2, the Book of Danny" was born.

After that I became a writing machine, writing seven days a week as many as seven hours a day. I finished "Now and Forever 3, Blind Love", the first two books in the Moonlight Series: "Sunny Days, Moonlit Nights" and "April's Kiss in the Moonlight". And the first two books in The List series: "The Marriage List" and "The Love List". I am finishing up the last books in these current series and will begin a new series in 2013, "Hollywood Hearts".

I hope you will keep reading as I intend to keep writing until the stories run out, which doesn't appear to be soon! Thank you for buying and reading my books.

Best wishes,
