Mr. Hollywood’s Secret is easily one of, if not the best standalone romance I’ve listened to. It perfectly balances steamy romance with believable characters, tension, and world-building. The characters are all compelling and well fleshed out, they feel like real people. The situations and scenarios they’re in are believable, everything down to the expressions or their reactions and mannerisms. Everything led up to a genuinely interesting and sad scenario.

I’m genuinely amazed at how much character development and world-building the author was able to put into such a short story. What really did it for me, aside from Eric reminding me of my life mate is the narration. At the start, there’s an obnoxious background hissing. I don’t know if it continues throughout the entire book though. I got invested quickly and was hooked until the end.

Even past the point where the plot could have ended, there’s another bit of story which is more or less an epilogue that wrapped things up nicely. I very much enjoyed my time with this story.

I thought the narrator did an excellent job. Each character felt distinct and their personality carried over to the voice acting. There weren’t any issues with the audio recordings or background hissing.
