Formats: Paperback, eBook, audiobook
Wannabe actress Dani Steele’s résumé resembles a cautionary tale on how not to be famous. She’s pushing thirty and stuck in a dead-end insurance job, and her relationship status is holding at uncommitted. With unbearably perfect sisters and a mother who won’t let her forget it, Dani has two go-tos for consolation: maple scones and a blog in which she pours her heart out to her celebrity idol. He’s the man her father never was, no boyfriend will ever be—and not so impossible a dream as one might think. When Dani learns that he’s planning a fund-raising event where the winning amateur athlete gets a walk-on in his new film, she decides to trade pastries and self-doubt for running shoes and a sexy British trainer with adorable knees.
But when Dani’s plot takes an unexpected twist, she realizes that her happy ending might have to be improvised—and that proving herself to her idol isn’t half as important as proving something to herself.

This is a work of fiction. While Dwayne Johnson p/k/a The Rock is a real person, events relating to him in the book are a product of the author’s imagination. Mr. Johnson is not affiliated with this book, and has not endorsed it or participated in any manner in connection with this book.
I have never laughed so hard from reading a book! This was such a fun book to read! The characters are all so interesting and Dani is so relatable and hilarious.I enjoyed reading her blog posts and her imaginary conversations with Dwayne. They were always so entertaining. I enjoyed getting to see her find herself and chase her dream. One thing I didn't like about this book was some of the comments about weight. They kind of bothered me a bit. Otherwise I enjoyed this book. I'm trying to be vague because I don't want to spoil too much. I loved the ending! This was a really enjoyable, funny and fun romantic comedy!
