Dressing Mr. Dalton
by Charlotte Byrd
Genre: Contemporary Romance
“Women who color their own hair do not go out with movie stars!”
So, what am I doing going on a date with him?
I’m a wardrobe stylist with a resume full of fake job experience (when my resume was accurate no one wanted to hire me). I drive a crappy car and I have $37.58 in my bank account.
He is People’s Sexiest Man Alive who lives in a beach house (read: mansion) in Malibu.
We are all wrong for each other for a number of reasons. The main one being: I hate everything about him.
Finn Dalton is arrogant, cocky, and self-involved.
He thinks he’s God’s gift to women and the fact that he has bedded almost every available (and unavailable) woman in Hollywood supports that theory.
I hate him…so what am I doing here? Why do I keep saying yes?
Yes, to a date. Yes, to a kiss. Yes, to this.
And what happens when the one person who is all wrong is the only one who’s right?
**This is a standalone contemporary romance.
This is a pretty generic contemporary romance about a 'regular' girl working as a wardrobe mistress on a small independent film and a famous actor who fall in love. Finn and Chloe meet cute, are attracted to each other, have a contrived date, a real date, a breakup, and then another contrived event that puts them back together.
Finn and Chloe are a cute couple, likable in their own ways. I realize I'm one of the few reviewers who didn't get excited about this short book and don't get me wrong, it's okay. Most of the reason I have trouble with it is the writing style. Over eighty percent of the book consists of one-word short sentences that function as a paragraph. It's fine in small doses but overall leads to a herky-jerky read, constant starting and stopping. I found it interrupted the flow and slowed the pace of the story down.
The most interesting part of the book is a scene where Finn has to film a sex scene in front of Chloe. So, this was just an okay read for me.
