Reality TV scout Vivvy Marsh loves her job, but she'll lose it if she doesn't find a hit. When she’s sent to Kansas to scout a show, it looks like a bust...until she meets sexy pilot, Nate Harrington. His family would make the perfect show to save her career.

Nate can’t deny his attraction to Vivvy, but no way can he let this show take off. The Harrington family is riddled with secrets, and she wants it all out in the open. For the next seven days, he’s going to stop at nothing to keep her out of his family's business, even if it means keeping her distracted in his bedroom.

The Review: I received this book for review. I enjoyed it to some extent. I find it really hard to connect with books like this and I always end up only giving them three stars.

As a story goes it was just ok for me. I didn't quite get the full concept of the reality show or why it was really being considered as a story, it just felt a little unrealistic to me. However the characters I did like. Vivvy was a strong woman who knew what she wanted out of the visit to Harringtons and she wasn't leaving without it. The relationship that then later stemmed between her and Nate was good. It caused some friction between the two and although their chemistry was obvious they still didn't believe they were at all right for each other. The romance wasn't overly instant, but you could definitely see the attraction between the two from the get go.

As far a pacing goes, it was well paced for what needed to be told, I did get bored in some places, but Nicole Helm must have done something right as in most parts I couldn't actually put the book down. 

Although I am only giving this 3 stars, I did enjoy it like I said, but I just can't always seem to connect with these types of books, I don't know why I think it must be the story or the setting or maybe the characters.

Overall it wasn't a bad book, not at all, it was all just ok for me. I wouldn't read it again but I do think if you happen to come across it somehow, give it a go. Nate is hot so that pretty much helps you get through most of the book. It is however, worth a read if you get to it.

Thank you to Entangled Publishing for allowing me review this title.
