The biggest surprise: the charisma of her first client.
Gorgeous, magnetic movie star, Chaz Duncan, wary of women who wanted to bask in his fame or sell his secrets to the media, valued privacy above all else.

NADENE’S REVIEW OF IF I LOVED YOU (HOLLYWOOD HEARTS 1)
This is my first time reading a book from this author and I was not disappointed. If I Loved You is a sweet romantic read set in NYC. It's filled with drama and depicts the ups and downs faced by persons who are in the public eye.
The lead male character, Chaz, who is an actor, was the epitome of sexiness and confidence. He was a very private person and tried his best to keep his personal life away from the press. He had a past that he trusted no one with, that was until he met Megan.
Megan was a brilliant financial adviser who was given the task of handling Chaz’s finances. The attraction between them was instantaneous. Megan hated any form of publicity but being apart of Chaz’s life plunged her into a world she had tried so hard to avoid. This had some devastating effects on their budding relationship. Megan was self-confident when it came to her career but as a person she is insecure and could not believe that someone like Chaz could be genuinely interested in her.
This story depicts that persons should live their lives the best they can for no matter what there will always be persons who are jealous of you for no reason and will try to ruin your happiness. This story was an easy read. It flowed beautifully from beginning to end. I really enjoyed this book and can’t wait for the next one in the series. This is a must read for readers who enjoy a sweet and fun romantic read.
