A Hollywood Superstar. A Small Town Girl. Opposites shouldn’t always attract.

Cole Masten. Abandoned by his superstar wife, Hollywood’s Perfect Husband is now Hollywood’s Sexiest Bachelor: partying hard and screwing even harder. Watch out Los Angeles, there’s a new bad boy in town.

Summer Jenkins. That’s me, a small town girl stuck in Quincy, Georgia. I cook some mean chicken and dumplins, can bluff a grown man out of his savings in poker, and was voted Most Friendly my senior year.

We were from different worlds. Our lives shouldn’t have collided. But then Cole Masten read a book about my small town. And six months later, his jet landed on our dusty airstrip, and he brought Hollywood with him.

From the start, I knew he was trouble. For our town. And for me.

Sometimes, opposites just aren’t meant to attract.



I could that Hollywood Dirt has a different vibe from her other books. Some of them usually contains mystery, suspense and darker vibe, but not this one. It’s about two different person from different place with same painful experience; somehow forced them to be together. I was curious about this because of the hypeee. My first impression was so clear from the title, it was like ‘dirty laundry’ from glamours world and brought into this ordinary person.

Life is like a movie. Moving forward but in the end, you have to decide the ending. Cheat and divorce are the most common things in celebrity’s world. This one happened to Cole Masten, a famous Hollywood actor and glorified by the women. With encouragement from a ruthless lawyer *cough, you must know him*, Cole manage to continue his messy life for the new movie. Quincy is the small town where Cole’s new movie placed. Summer Jenkins isn’t the kind of small town girl who like to gossiping around. Summer pushed herself to get out from Quincy for her future. Cole came with a shocking offer to Summer, to be the main lead actress for the movie. This is her golden chance also the opportunity for Cole because he asses Summer is very natural as a southern girl for the movie. Cole thinks he could ‘conquered’ Summer like other girls, but it isn’t that easy.


If you already read Ms. Torre’s work before, you must know her characters very well. Alpha male hero and feisty heroine. Well, this is our Cole and Summer. I couldn’t easily forget this type of characters. Brave, easy going and doesn’t care about other’s judgment, this is Summer. She’s also a bit mischievous and naughty. Yes, all Ms. Torre’s heroine never ashamed of their sexuality. This is the plus from me. Hollywood Dirt isn’t really erotic romance, I liked some scenes where the sexual tension between Cole and Summer was burning. Obviously, they’re hot for each other since their first met. Their banter turns into sexual frustration and I loved it.

“I won’t stop until my mouth is imprinted on your mind and your taste is my fucking middle name.”


“I want to flip you over and bury my face in between your legs and fuckin’ own you with my mouth.”

Honestly, there is no surprise in the story. It was predictable but I was curious about Cole-Summer’s tug-of-war. I loved Ms. Torre’s writing. Flowed nicely, descriptive and detailed. But sometimes the timeline about the past confused me. I liked the playful side from Cole and Summer. She’s really an interesting character with her free-spirited and wild side. I also loved how Brad DeLuca made appearance as cameo in here. He kicked Cole’s ass like a fairy godfather in this story. LOL

“He loved her. He did. He fucking loved this woman. He loved her giggle when she couldn’t control it. He loved the mischief in her eyes when she was playful. He loved how her body stiffened and hands balled up and her gaze could eat through a grown man when she was mad. But none of that compared to how much he loved her sighs, the sound of his name when she screamed it, the way her mouth responded to his kisses, her scent—God he could bottle her juices and become a billionaire, but he would never because he couldn’t, in that moment, ever imagine another man with her. He would kill to keep her his, pay every cent of his fortune, destroy his career and never have another if it would keep her his…”

Overall, Hollywood Dirt was an easy read with enjoyable ‘Cinderella’ kind of story; not my cuppa. The story line is a bit unbelievable. Their relationship was too rushed with time skip (because suddenly they’re feel right for each other). Again, this is not erotic romance so you wouldn’t find raw and wild sex. Only sexy and steamy sexual tension in here. But, if you’re looking for sweet and sexy romantic story, I would love to recommend Hollywood Dirt for you. Don’t worry, you will find rainbow in their HEA.

  1. well..insta love nya Cole & Summer masi bisa dimengerti, keduanya pernah jadi korban perselingkuhan, tapi ga konek dengan karakternya Summer, dan Cole lebih cocok dengan Brad De Luca LOL…
    yang bikin Hollywood Dirt bagus justru kisah-kisah dibalik layar, bagaimana sebuah film diproduksi, penulisnya pasti sudah melakukan riset
    tingkah Cocky juga bikin lucu, itu ayam sifatnya mirip Cole 🙂
    **** 4 stars (dan ini karya pertama Alessandra Torre yang kubaca)


  2. Neh novel yg berkesan bagiku bukan si Summer ato Cole tp si ayamnya…

    Seumur baca novel blm pernah seekor ayam jadi pet. Kalo dog ato cat sering. Neh ada ayamnya.

    Suer, ngakak aku…
