Have a free afternoon? This is a good book to fill your time with. Easy, non-heavy entertainment. The relationship between Trina and Matiu is funny to watch and they each try to fit in with each other.

The book was very easy to read to read. One thing I had an issue with was the language. While I am certainly not shy, some choice words were added into the narration. It seemed a bit off to me. It would make more sense if one of the characters if the characters had said them. There were other scenes where the language was questionable. While funny to read, it didn’t add anything to the story line and felt a bit forced.

Aside from that the story was good and the author shows potential. If you are looking for some glitz,romance, or comedy, this book is worth picking up.


Hollywood Ending is a romantic comedy about life in Hollywood for the not-so-rich-and-famous. Trina Stewart is desperate to find a proper Hollywood job and finally quit teaching ESL, but after ten years in Tinsel Town, things are looking grim. That is, until she sets her sights on sexy new neighbor, Matiu Wulf, a New Zealander of Maori origin who is only in Los Angeles to get some scene design experience to beef up his resume, and then he’s headed back home to Auckland. He manages to thwart Trina’s advances, but when she falls under the spell of toothy-grinned thespian, he’s desperate to win back her heart. But when Hollywood gets in the way, these two soon discover that life in Tinsel Town isn’t all red carpet, after parties and celebrity gossip. In fact, Hollywood can be a downright bitch!
