Before filming starts on her next movie, America's sweetheart, Grace Carradine, wants a girls' night out. As she dons a disguise to evade the paparazzi, her brown hair isn't the only deception, so is her upcoming marriage to her costar.Naval-pilot-turned-author, Sebastian "Bash" Baron finds his friends are pairing up and starting families. Given his history, he knows that life isn't for him—even if the period romance he wrote is being made into a movie. Those stories only exist in fiction—or other people's lives.
The two begin a secret romance, meant to last only as long as the starlet is on location in Bash's hometown. When the paparazzi, obligations, and pride tear them apart, will Bash come to his senses in time, or will Grace marry the wrong man?

Often, when we read stories about a movie star falling in love with the movie's screenwriter, usually the movie star is male and the writer is female. In OUT OF TIME by Melissa Klein, the roles are reversed. We meet Grace Carradine, America's sweetheart, or at least she better be if the studio and paparazzi have any say in it; and Sebastian (Bash) Baron, rising author with a string of women eager to resume where they left off. Can a starlet yearning for the white picket fence tame a womanizer? More importantly, should she?
I really liked Ms. Klein's take on this theme. The characters were mostly likeable (seriously, who could like David?). Grace and Bash's chemistry were off the charts. The differences between Grace and Bash's friends were like night and day and really lent themselves to rounding out the story. Setting the story in the small town of La Grange, North Carolina added to the story's charm along with the town's residents.
Overall, this is a lighthearted story that is not only enjoyable but you have to read it if for no other reason than the end. I was grinning from the pre-wedding misgivings in Los Angeles all the way to the…spoilers!
