Mission Hollywood:A Red Carpet Romance Book 1 By Michelle Keener

I received this book for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book.  The opinions expressed here are my own. 


Book Description:    

A Hollywood bad boy. A pastor’s daughter.
What could possibly go wrong?

Movie star Ben Prescott arrives back in Hollywood after causing a scandal with his ex-girlfriend in Rome.
Chased through the airport by paparazzi, he jumps into a limo hoping for a quick getaway. Instead he finds Lily Shaw, a pastor’s daughter and preschool teacher. When the paparazzi capture a photo of the two of them together, Ben’s agent demands that he do whatever it takes to keep the story from hitting the gossip pages . . . even volunteer to work at Lily’s church.
Sparks fly as the movie star and the pastor’s daughter work side by side. When Lily accompanies Ben to the premiere of his latest movie, Hollywood takes notice. Under intense media scrutiny and pressure from the movie industry, Ben must risk his career to follow his heart, but Lily wants the one thing he doesn’t have, faith.

Mission Hollywood is an inspirational story about love, faith, and second chances.


My Thoughts:  

Mission Hollywood is the first book in Michelle Keener's series, Red Carpet Romance, and WOW. 
I have come to enjoy Christian Contemporary Fiction, and I fell in love with the book description and the cover art. Michelle Keener has fantastic style of writing, she writes about relationships and love cleanly is something not all authors have figured out. Her ability to tell a Christian's story without sounding preachy is definitely UNIQUE. Michelle Keener writes with authority about our world, California especially Hollywood, paparazzi, and being part of a church. I found the characters well written and real people. I found myself drawn to Lily Shaw. She is a strong woman with strong faith that helps her through anything that life is throwing at her. Her character traits are definitely admirable. Once I started this book, I was hooked. I could NOT put this book down. I felt like I was right there in the story with the characters going through what they are. I cannot say enough good about this book. I cannot wait to read Michelle Keener's next book in this series, coming in 
February 2020. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes Clean Contemporary Fiction, you will NOT be disappointed. I give this book 5+ STARS.

More from Michelle

Why Hollywood? That’s a great question! Of all the places I could have set a Christian romance novel, why pick Hollywood? It isn’t exactly the first place that pops into your mind when you think Christian romance, right? The truth is I spent four years of my life trying to become an actress. I was a theatre major in the Los Angeles area and I spent a lot of time in Hollywood. I’ve been down Hollywood Boulevard, visited casting offices, and gone to open-call auditions. In those years, I saw the good and the bad of the movie industry. I saw dreams shattered and hearts broken under the glamourous lights of the Sunset Strip. Years later, when I started thinking about writing a Christian romance, I knew Hollywood was the perfect setting to tell the story of God’s unchanging, never-ending love for us. Mission Hollywood isn’t just one love story, it’s two. The romance between Ben and Lily is definitely swoon-worthy, but there is also the story of how much God loves us. I hope you enjoy Mission Hollywood…it’s only the beginning of the story for the Shaw Family. Book two is coming in February!
