Review: Heartthrob by Belinda Williams [With Giveaway]


Hollywood Hearts #1
Belinda Williams
Released Nov 10th, 2016


Ally Valenti doesn’t belong in Hollywood. Not like her friend and actress, Lena Lyons. Lena’s convinced Ally to pursue her dreams of fashion design, starting with some gowns for the awards season.

Which Ally will get around to creating as soon as she can stop looking at Jacob Swan, Lena’s latest co-star. Not that she’s staring. Ally’s skeptical of anything celebrity and it’s not like she’d be pathetic enough to fall for a Hollywood heartthrob.

Then Ally learns there’s more to Jacob than his good guy, all-American persona. She finds herself torn between the desire to get to know him better and her determination to stay out of the limelight.

Of course the media has other ideas—and someone doesn’t like all the attention Ally’s getting. When threats aimed at destroying her fashion career go too far, Ally’s convinced she’s living in crazy town.

The sensible thing would be to retreat home before it all ends in spectacular fashion. But will Ally be leaving more than her dreams behind if she says goodbye to Hollywood?

This glamorous, fast-paced contemporary romance that will make you smile, is perfect for fans of Rachel Gibson, Victoria Dahl, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, and Liliana Hart.

Belinda Willliams is a marketing communications specialist and copywriter who allowed an addiction to romance and chick-lit to get the better of her. She was named a top ten finalist in the Romance Writers of Australia Emerald Award in both 2013 and 2014.

Her other addictions include music and cars. Belinda’s eclectic music taste forms the foundation of many of her writing ideas and her healthy appreciation for fast cars means she would not so secretly love a Lamborghini. For now she’ll have to settle with her son’s Hot Wheels collection and writing hot male leads with sports cars.

Belinda lives in Sydney and blogs regularly about writing and reading at www.belindawilliamsbooks.com

My Rating: 5 Bambi STARS!
Heartthrob is a delicious and delightful read that I had a massive fun reading. It have a wonderful romance, outrageous humor that you will love and also super amazing and lovable characters!

First of all, I must say that the heroine is what made me fell in love with this book. Allegra Valenti or Ally is what exactly I would want in a heroine and I just LOVE her! She is super talented, humble, freaking hilarious and she makes mean pizza and lasagna! She have many cool traits that I like but mostly, I love the fact that she is fiercely loyal to the ones that she loves especially to Lena and Jake.

Jacob Swan or Jake is our charming hero and he is the Hollywood heartthrob. His personality is described as fun loving and outgoing type but I love that he wasn't portrayed as the typical man-whore hero despite his career as a famous actor. I am also liking the way the author interestingly incorporated his character's background and history and I am genuinely fascinated with Jake as a whole. 

I am also loving the supporting characters like Lena, Chloe, Bella and even Faith. And I am excited to read Lena's story next. I hope Ally and Jake will make a cameo appearance though because I will surely miss them after this!

Anyway, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Heartthrob because it have all the great things that a romance book should have and it is just so good that you will not want to stop reading it once you had started. Totally and definitely a 5-Star read!
