Hello, Hollywood! by Janice Thompson


When it comes to love, one thing's for sure--it doesn't follow a script!

Athena Pappas is the head writer on Stars Collide, one of the most popular sitcoms in television history. But when Vegas comedian Stephen Cosse is brought in to beef up the show's suddenly sagging ratings, she starts to worry about her job. Sparks fly as the competition--and attraction--between the two writers heats up. Athena has never had a problem writing the romances of her characters. So why is her own love life so hard to script?

With humor and a Hollywood-insider viewpoint, Hello, Hollywood! delivers lots of laughs as Athena and Stephen discover that not being in control of the plot of their lives might just be the best thing that ever happened to them.

Here is my review of this entertaining read:

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Janice Thompson and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Hello, Hollywood!" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

Janice Thomson’s “Hello, Hollywood” is book #2 in her charming Backstage Pass series chronicling the lives of those involved in making a hit sitcom. This novel showcases the writers of Stars Collide, the hit show that has dropped a bit in its ratings. When the producers bring on another writer, the rest of the staff feels that this may be how one of them is going to be replaced.

Athena Pappas, head writer on the television sitcom is thinking she might be out of a job when former Las Vegas standup comedian, Stephen Cosse, is hired as a writer on the show. But when this Adonis-like man proves to be not only handsome but also talented and have other things in common with Athena, it appears that she won’t be losing her job, but her heart.

This incredibly entertaining novel is a charming romantic comedy from the gifted author of the “Weddings by Bella” series.
