Waiting in the Wings was so freaking cute! Erin works for a theater company in Manila, but she’s taking a break from the stage in order to be an active participant in her own life. She’s never been kissed off stage! That’s when two eligible bachelors walk into her life and her theater. The first is her college friend, Ramon, who is the new choreographer. The second is a famous actor named Pio who is auditioning for their upcoming musical. Ramon is so happy to see Erin again, but he missed his chance when Pio asks her out first. Or did he?

All Over You is a quickie prequel to this series, set about two years prior to its beginning. Sienna has just gotten a job as a wardrobe assistant and her current assignment is for a music video. Lucas is the lead singer of the band and known for his womanizing ways, and soon his sights are set on Sienna rather than the model playing his love interest. Sienna requires a bit of convincing, but she goes out with Lucas and of course things take a steamy turn. Only to completely fizzle out, once things truly heat up.
Catch My Breath was super cute! I’m a total sucker for reality TV plots, and this one is made even better because it’s about boybands! Well, there’s a girl band, and other musicians, but it follows Danny and Elliot’s group primarily. Danny is auditioning for what he thinks is a solo gig, and it was at first. But then they decide a boyband would be even better! Elliot auditions at the encouragement of a friend, and he’s exactly what the industry is looking for. Neither guy is expecting to find love when they sign on.
Finding It was predictable and frustrating, but not in good ways. I was excited to get Kelsey’s story because she seemed like such a fun, confident character in the first book. However, it becomes very clear from the beginning that she’s very troubled and is running away from her problems. Kelsey has taken off to Europe for a gap year of sorts. She says she wants to gain new experiences to become a better actress, but she’s just boozing around and sleeping around to avoid her problems. Then she meets Hunt, and things start to feel different.
Faking It is, obviously, a fake relationship turned real, but without enough of the fake part. It picks up soon after Losing It, with Cade in Philadelphia where he hopes to work, yet hasn’t gone on any auditions. He’s also trying to get over his former best friend, Bliss, and learns that she’s about to become engaged which hits him hard. Then Max walks up to him and asks him to pretend to be her boyfriend, since her parents are on a surprise visit and cannot meet her real boyfriend. Cade is an actor, a knight in shining armor, and needs a distraction, so of course he agrees.
Losing It was so freaking adorable and awkward! Bliss is a twenty-two year old virgin. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. She just hasn’t felt ready to take that step, but her best friend thinks it’s time. Bliss does think that maybe she should just get her first time out of the way, so the girls head out. Bliss meets a super sexy guy reading Shakespeare in a bar. And he’s British! Everything is going well, until they get naked, and Bliss gets painfully awkward and runs out (of her own apartment). Then it gets more awkward when she walks into class the following morning and that sexy guy is her professor.
The Score is easily my favorite book of this series! I absolutely loved Allie and Dean! It all starts when Allie breaks up with her boyfriend of 3 years. He doesn’t want to let her go, and she’s not sure if she’d be able to not give him another chance if she’s face to face with him. She winds up staying at her friend’s boyfriend’s house for the weekend to hide out, but she doesn’t expect Dean to be there. She also doesn’t expect to get drunk, have wild sex with him, and then crave more.
