When international movie star Sven Larsson meets young widowed mom of three, Sylvia, the sexual chemistry between them is instant and explosive—and plastered all over the papers. Sven needs to repair his damaged reputation. The last thing he needs is another scandal, but the Dom in him can't resist the challenge Sylvia represents.

Having survived an abusive marriage, Sylvia is not looking for another relationship, let alone a kinky one with a man of Sven's reputation. Her submissive side can't help but be drawn to him, especially once she gets to know the man behind the public image. She can't help but fall in love with the private, broken Sven—even if he doesn't do love.

With the paparazzi breathing down their necks at every turn, and past demons raising their ugly heads, will they ever be able to find happiness?

THE HOUSEWIFE AND THE FILM STAR starts with a bit of a bang…well more like a wobble…of the high heels kind. But then…oh…oh…mmmmm…insta-attraction of the right kind mixed with a hefty dose of sass.

I love this story. It has so many bits going for it ranging from Sylvia's initial cluelessness over who Sven is to the paparazzi to Hard Head (laughs) to her absolutely adorable whip-wielding neighbor (I've always wanted to say that), and I haven't even touched on their relationship or their interactions.

One of the aspects I really enjoyed is the plausibility that this story could happen to most anyone. It takes the level of fantasy to a reality level that makes it that much more fun. The dialogue and outright sass made me snort in amusement on more than one occasion (more like dozens), which also made the drama that much more endearing along with me hopeful that they will have their happily ever after.

This is partly a story of redemption coupled with the knowledge that everyone and anyone can find love even if it means "almost [breaking] her nose on an inconveniently placed wall of muscle." And well, really, that's the best way.
