Book Description

Sept. 19 2010
Hollywood Ending is a romantic comedy about life in Hollywood for the not-so-rich-and-famous. Trina Stewart is desperate to find a proper Hollywood job and finally quit teaching ESL, but after ten years in Tinsel Town, things are looking grim. That is, until she sets her sights on sexy new neighbor, Matiu Wulf, a New Zealander of Maori origin who is only in Los Angeles to get some scene design experience to beef up his resume, and then he's headed back home to Auckland. He manages to thwart Trina's advances, but when she falls under the spell of toothy-grinned thespian, he's desperate to win back her heart. But when Hollywood gets in the way, these two soon discover that life in Tinsel Town isn't all red carpet, after parties and celebrity gossip. In fact, Hollywood can be a downright bitch!

4.0 out of 5 stars Hollywood needs to read this book! Oct. 8 2010
By G. Earls - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We all know that Hollywood is an expensive and sexy joint, full of starlets, paparazzi and glam. However the town was built by real people who sacrificed a great deal of love and comfort before seeing any part of the glitz and glamour of that town. Hollywood Ending focuses on those young wannabe filmmakers who trek in from the Midwest (and as far away as New Zealand) to try and break into the business. The trick is figuring out how to balance work, love, sex and success!

This book is like "Sex and The City" for the young Hollywood set, but MUCH more genuine thanks to the witty protagonist, Trina Stewart. This is a girl who teaches to pay the bills, beats the Hollywood pavement, cooks a helluva stack of pancakes (the description literally made my mouth water) and will rock your world between the sheets. Watching her and her love interests (note the plural) navigate the bottom rung of the industry ladder while trying to find love at the same time is a trip! As somebody who arrived in Hollywood in his early 20's, I especially enjoyed the read. It also gave me a nervous stomach, because some of those situations hit way too close to home!

But this book is for everybody because when it comes to making life decisions, experiencing a broken heart and finding love, we've all been there. And if you haven't yet, then pick up this book. It's a good primer. A sexy and hilarious read, I hope I see this as a film someday soon!

3.0 out of 5 stars A love story in Hollywood June 7 2011
By Laura Kay - Published on Amazon.com
This is a Hollywood love story, ok well it's more like a story of two regular Joes looking to break into the business--but an ending with true Hollywood style. Trina Stewart and Matiu Wulf are both looking to make a name for themselves in Tinsel Town. Well trying to make a name doesn't pay the bills. Trina teaches English as a second language as her day job, but has been dreaming of breaking into the business for the last ten years--and according to her best bud what Trina really needs is a good man!

Good guy, Matiu, is in Hollywood for six weeks to take a class and head back home to New Zealand. He is not looking for any entanglements just looking to build his resume with some Hollywood credentials. But all bets are off when Trina banged on his front door.
Hollywood Ending is a really quick read. The story is easy to follow has a few surprises along the way. The language was a little stronger than what I normally read, but it added color to the story and characters. In the beginning of the book I wasn't a huge Trina, but mid-way through the story when Trina quit chasing after Matiu I really began to like her. Near the end, I felt sorry for Trina as she tries to figure out her heart. The end of story lives up to its title. I found I liked the book the more I read. I found this to be a fun lighthearted book. I can't wait to see what Lucie publishes next.

4.0 out of 5 stars I really loved this book Feb. 24 2013
By BronteFan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a page-turner for me, and even though I guessed the plot twist, I still enjoyed the journey the author took me on. War and Peace it ain't but it's a fun little escapist read, very well-written. And irony of ironies, would make a good tv movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars Painful July 31 2012
By cjehawks - Published on Amazon.com

This was a painful book to get through. The characters were completely unrealistic, and the author doesn't really get into the "behind the Hollywood scene," that I like to read in these types of books. Even if you get it free, totally not worth your time.
