They all think they can sleep their way to the top - blondes, brunettes and redheads. That is, until they meet me. My name is DeVon Ricci and I’m an asshole. At least they all seem to think so. But I don’t give a shit because they never last long. Two or three weeks tops, then they're gone. Not that it matters. There’s always another talent waiting to take a seat on the casting couch, but I've yet to find what I'm looking for. I know what I want and I won't settle for less. I'm always chasing perfection.The embodiment of the American dream, DeVon Ricci had come to America from Italy when he was a teenager and then, with hard work and perseverance, had worked his way up in a cutthroat industry to emerge as the head of one of the top talent agencies in Los Angeles. Now it looks like he has everything he could ever want, except for the perfect woman.
Claire's Review 4 Bare Naked Stars****
DeVon Ricci is arrogant, dominant and at the top of his game. THE top Hollywood agent, he knows what he wants and he won’t stop at anything to get it. He uses women, using his position to get women and they never last longer then a few weeks.
Krissy Jensen is moving, moving on from her best friend who is going to live with her boyfriend, Krissy decides to apply for jobs in LA. She’s not an actress, nor has any interest in being, but she is a lawyer and interested in broadening her horizons, she interviews at DeVon’s agency for a position under Mr Duncan.
She very quickly discovers that the Mirage agency – or at least Mr Ricci, has some very strange interview techniques and she finds it difficult to decide whether to take this amazing opportunity or run back to safe shores.
This book did shock me in parts, DeVon is not a likeable character and to be honest that doesn’t change throughout the book, Krissy is more likeable and believable and shows some spirit when she fights back just as dirty, it’s obvious that DeVon wants her and I found myself disappointed that she might want him back.
M S Parker definitely leaves you wanting the next instalment which is due in August.
