Just released by award winning, best selling author, Stacey Rourke and only 99 pennies for a limited time!
Aubrey Evans is living every author’s dream; her sizzling romance novel is being turned into a blockbuster film. She would be celebrating this momentous event, if she wasn’t busy fighting over every tiny production detail with the maddeningly cavalier director, Kole Camden.
When news of their heated rivalry hits the gossip columns, drastic measures must be taken to save their sinking project. In an elaborate PR hoax, she is publicly linked to Greyson Meyers, the swoon-worthy star of her movie. A whirl-wind love affair is staged for the couple to mirror the steamy chapters of her own books.
Can the introverted author resist the charms of Hollywood’s sexiest leading man? Or will love find her in the City of Angels?
If you are looking for a light-hearted, funny read to indulge in poolside, look no further!
Wicked Reads had this to say about Adapted for Film, “Having been a fan of Mrs. Rourke’s YA novels for awhile now, I was very nervous to hear of her newest book. A romantic comedy? No, this would not work! I was 100% wrong. This book was filled with everything I love about her other series; quick wit and characters that you can relate to … From start to finish I was enthralled in the story. I literally could not put it down and read it in a matter of hours.”

My Review of Adapted For Film
My Rating – 5 stars
Can I just say ‘Oh my god, you have to read this book!’ and have it be enough? Because OH MY GOD, YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK!! I can’t remember the last time I read a book that had me laughing so hard! This was my first time reading a Stacey Rourke book but it definitely won’t be my last!
The main character Aubrey is so sarcastic and witty you can’t help but fall in love with her. She kept me laughing even during those awkward moments. Not to brag (and I do think it’s brag worthy) but she reminded me a lot of myself, sweats (and believe it or not, Bar Bree) included! I need a friend like Aubrey because people look at you like you’re crazy when you laugh at your own hilarity. Especially while wearing pjs. Aubrey’s best friend, Tandy, is with her through most of the story…until she meets her own little prince (hehe). While I do love Tandy because she is such a good friend to Aubrey, I’m glad there wasn’t more of her. Just enough to keep us remembering who she is.
In a lot of the reviews that I have read for this book, people were disappointed in the lack of a sex scene. For me, that was a breath of fresh air! I do NOT think that a romance novel needs to have a sex scene to be a romance! And it is even more great because now I can recommend this book to my (extremely) religious family and not have them disown me. This is such a sweet story and I think allowing us to be in the bedroom with the characters would have ruined the sweetness. I do however, agree that I wish there was a little more of the romance between the couple, but it is still a great story without. I believe all amazing romantic relationships start out as friendships. And that is exactly what Stacey Rourke captures in Adapted For Film. For that reason alone this book deserves 5 stars, but don’t discount the fact that you will laugh out loud on more than one occasion!
