"Come for the romance, but stay for the hysterical dialogue." --NPR After four months of unemployment, former book editor Clara Montgomery is officially stuck--stuck sleeping on her little brother's ugly couch in Queens, stuck scrolling through job listings in search of a new editorial position...and just desperate enough to take on a temporary gig clearing out abandoned storage units. If nothing else, she's determined to keep her rapidly dwindling savings account intact. Unfortunately, she is in no way prepared for stumbling upon dead snakes or dealing with glass jars that she's convinced are full of pickled eyeballs. And why does everything seem to smell like beets? Then Clara comes across a unit that was once owned by an escort service and finds the brothel "résumé" of a younger Caspian Tiddleswich, an astonishingly famous British actor. She has no intention of cashing in on her discovery, but her awkward attempts to reassure Caspian that his secret is safe go awry. Now Caspian is convinced that Clara is a blackmailer, the tabloids have her pegged as Caspian's newest girlfriend...and Clara begins to find the A-lister's charms more irresistible than she expected.… (més)

The first chapter or so I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy this book. Happily I was wrong. Once I got into it I really liked it. Clara sounds like someone I'd like to be friends with, Cici too! Caspian can be a little annoying, but once you know why, it's not as bad. Quick read, perfect for a beach read.

This review is based on an ARC from NetGalley, courtesy of the publisher. All opinions are my own. ( )

Loved this- it's only the second romance novel I've read this year, and I am getting more and more positive that this book is what is spurring me on.
The whole premise of regular gal ending up with a celebrity because of unusual circumstances- pulled me right in. Add in the fact that she worked in publishing and it was right up my alley. Clara loses her job in as a book editor, has to move in with her brother and ends up taking a job cleaning out storage units- yuck.
A series of events lead her to a famous guy, and she ends up "fake dating" him- which turns into real dating- which made me laugh out loud. This is hilarious and real and perfect for reading at the beach this summer. ( )

Due to a business change by her employer, Clara Montgomery has lost her job as a book editor. She has a lot of feelers out there, but for now she is down on her luck. She is currently living on her brother's couch and has been forced to take a job cleaning out storage facilities.

In one unit, she happens upon some shocking and scandalous information. She has discovered proof of a former escort service and is stunned to see the name of a successful British actor among the many names. His name is Caspian Tiddleswich and her best friend has all but convinced Clara to sell Caspian's story to the tabloids.

Although Clara seriously considers it, she decides not to do so. However, she did make contact with him and he immediately accuses her of blackmail. Well, he literally puts the shoe on the other foot. He insists that Clara act as his girlfriend certain opportunities in public, hoping that the paparazzi will be convinced that he is off the market. This will take Caspian quite far when it comes to promoting his latest film.

Clara and Caspian knock heads every step of the way. She wants out, but he holds the upper hand. Neither one of them expects that their fake romance might actually lead to much more. Meanwhile, Clara is feverishly trying to hunt down another editing job.

This was an enjoyable story. I absolutely loved the dynamic between Clara and her best friend, CiCi. I also enjoyed the development of the relationship between Clara and Caspian. Many things made it seem unlikely, and I loved the road that it took to get there. I enjoyed this book by Summer Heacock and I look forward to reading more by her in the future.

Many thanks to Mira Books and to NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion. ( )

Clara has lost her job and her apartment. She is sleeping on a sofa at her brother’s apartment. She has taken a crap job cleaning out storage units where she runs across some information about hired escorts and famous people. This opens a whole new can of worms.

I adore many parts of this read. Clara is struggling and your heart goes out to her. Then there is her family. They crack me up…Clara is pretty funny herself, despite her dire situation.

The ONLY problem I had with this book was with Caspian. Caspian is borderline verbally abusive. The first time it occurs is early in the book. He is threatened by Clara and her information so, he fights back to protect himself and his reputation. Things smooth over and Clara and Caspian hit it off. Then Caspian does it again. That was it for me! But, this is how a good author works….creates love and hate in the same character!

This book made me cackle! Don’t read this is public because you will bust out into hysterical laughter. It is uproariously funny, especially where Clara’s mother is involved.

Other than the Caspian issue, I am crazy about this read. I love a book which creates intense laughter and intense anger. Very uniquely done!

I received this novel from Mira Books for a honest review. ( )

I went into Crashing The A-List hoping for a fun romcom style story, and I was not disappointed. This story is definitely everything a romcom and a beach read should be. Witty and quirky characters, snappy dialogue, problems that aren't too heavy and a dash of fun shenanigans. This is a delightful story that will pick you up and make you smile. I highly recommend for anyone who enjoys a sharp yet laughable romance. Thanks to NetGalley for an arc in exchange for an honest review. ( )
