A Fun New Summer Read by Dahlia Adler

Today is a special day for my former colleague, Dahlia Adler. I worked with her back at Pocket Books what feels like eternities ago, but every once and a while we meet up to catch up. And today, her first book, Behind the Scenes, has hit the shelves! Yay!

Released from Spencer Hill Press in both eBook and print editions, Behind the Scenes is getting some great word of mouth from authors and readers alike. New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Echols says, "[This book] keeps the promise of its title, ushering readers backstage in a Hollywood romance they won’t want to leave. I loved this book every bit as much as I expected.”

I, myself, can't wait to read it. I just downloaded a copy to my Nook, in fact! :) 

High school senior Ally Duncan’s best friend may be the Vanessa Park – star of TV’s hottest new teen drama – but Ally’s not interested in following in her BFF’s Hollywood footsteps. In fact, the only thing Ally’s ever really wanted is to go to Columbia and study abroad in Paris. But when her father’s mounting medical bills threaten to stop her dream in its tracks, Ally nabs a position as Van’s on-set assistant to get the cash she needs.

Spending the extra time with Van turns out to be fun, and getting to know her sexy co-star Liam is an added bonus. But when the actors’ publicist arranges for Van and Liam to “date” for the tabloids just after he and Ally share their first kiss, Ally will have to decide exactly what role she’s capable of playing in their world of make believe. If she can’t play by Hollywood’s rules, she may lose her best friend, her dream future, and her first shot at love.

Congrats, Dahlia! Have an amazing pub day!
