Morgan Pritchett doesn’t need anyone. Strong-willed and confident, she’s the master of organizing and looking after everyone around her. In her mind, she’s bulletproof.

But she has one weakness – men. She can’t seem to live without them, yet is unable to find her perfect match. After yet another break up, Morgan promises her sister and best friend that she’ll write off men for the rest of the year…but then she meets Sean Jaxon.

Sean Jaxon has worked hard to become a Hollywood actor, scoring minor roles and slowly making a name for himself as an action sidekick. After a chance encounter with the stunning Morgan Pritchett, he decides to take a risk and put his dancing skills to the test by signing on for the lead role in Superstar, a TV musical. He never thought he’d reconnect with the girl who urged him to ignore his manager and be honest with himself, but when Morgan shows up on the set as a production assistant, he realizes he’s found his ultimate weakness – her.

Their passion for dance and music will bring them together, but will their relationship be able to withstand the forces determined to pull them apart? As Morgan comes face-to-face with her long-buried demons and Sean decides just how much he’s willing to risk for love, these two songbirds discover something…they’re not as bulletproof as they thought.

what i thoughtI’ll have to admit, I wasn’t as into this one as the first book, which I absolutely adored! It just had a completely different vibe than the first. But, good vibes. ;)

Morgan is wanting to find love like her best friend Ella did. But how? It can’t be that easy… Morgan is having trouble finding a job and this has been going on for months. Until she gets a call from a TV set working to serve the producer… Who is a COMPLETE jerk and is the reason why the previous girl who worked for him quit. This isn’t going to be an easy job that’s for sure. Little does she realize a famous guy, whom she’s been crushing on is actually the star in this show she’s working for. But is all the fame and paparazzi worth being with Sean when his last girlfriend almost ruined his acting career for him?

I think my biggest problem as to why I didn’t like this one as much as Fever, is because it was a little hard to relate with Morgan’s story. I haven’t read that many actor/Hollywood type books and haven’t come across many characters who are like this.. So it was a little difficult to really understand and relate with Morgan. But I did love the overall story and her love story. Sean was definitely swoon-worthy that’s for sure! I absolutely loved how he’s a complete sweetheart and gentleman. There were certain scenes where I became putty because of the way he acted and what he would say.

I KNEW one of the things that happened in this book (won’t tell you to avoid spoilers) would happen. The second it was introduced, I could immediately put the pieces together and figure out what was about to happen like 50 pages later.

I’m excited to see Jody’s love story next– she is Morgan’s little sister. :)

quotes

“She and Cole were perfect together. I squeezed Sean’s shoulder, hoping the same for us. It was impossible to deny that I was way past falling for him.

I’d fallen, hard and fast. It had been brilliant and amazing and I wanted it to last forever.” — Melissa Pearl, Bulletproof

“When someone does give back… when someone loves back… it’s like the fudge sauce on your sundae.” — Melissa Pearl, Bulletproof
