Book Review: Sex Symbol by Laurelin Paige

Sex Symbol
Micah Preston is Hollywood’s #1 sex symbol.

A rich and famous actor who has sworn off any serious relationships, the playboy is the media’s favorite bachelor.

But he wasn’t anybody when Maddie Bauer met him seven years ago. Then he was just the hot guy at the party who gave her an amazing orgasm and never called her again.

Now her job as a camera assistant has landed her on the set of his latest movie, and despite her vow to ignore his charm, she finds him pulling her focus.

She just has to make it through the shoot without landing in his bed. But when the legendary bad boy sets his sights on her, how can she possibly resist? 

Sex Symbol was originally titled Take Two, which I prefer. This is a second chance Hollywood love story. It's a sweet love story after you move past the main character's douchbaginess. It's an easy, heartwarming read.

It's seven years after a quick and intense connection that Maddie Bauer and now Hollywood sex symbol Micah Preston end up in the same car on the way to the same movie set. Although they both recognize each other, Micah initially chooses to act as if he doesn't remember Maddie. Micah had a previous bad relationship that only reinforced in his belief that Hollywood and relationships don't mix. He made a very deliberate decision in choosing his career of love.

It doesn't last long before Micah gives in and chases after Maddie. They agree to try being together, "We said no preconceived notions about where we were going.". Micah can't move past his belief that Hollywood relationships don't work and sets the stage for heartbreak and douchbaggery. 

The ending is a "Go big or go home" HEA. Sex Symbol is a sweet summer read while you're sitting on the beach enjoying a ice-tea (preferably of the Long Island variety). 4 Stars
