About this ebook

I left for LA with everything I owned piled into my old Volkswagen and dreams of becoming a costume designer. Little did I know I’d wind up designing for a lingerie company—yeah, not sure how I landed this gig—and taken under the wing of two young Hollywood insiders. The fashion shows and parties were great, but life really got exciting when the seriously hottest lead singer of my favorite band started to fall for me.

How does someone like me, an ordinary girl from Pittsburgh, wind up in the arms of the world’s sexiest rock star—surrounded by celebrities, fashion, and music—and not be eaten alive? Berkeley is everything I’ve ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, but the paparazzi, the tabloids, the rumors, it’s all getting a bit too crazy. My life has become every girl’s dream come true, if only I don’t blink and lose it all...

Each book in the Brightside series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

The word that jumped out at me while reading this book is 'safe'. I felt no real risk was had throughout the entire story. So if you're after a love story with perceived risks of the heart, this book is for you.

I had to read this story after I heard an alumni from fidm wrote a book about a girl who goes to la after A bad break up and ends up working at a lingerie company and ends up finding her destiny / future...Needles to say I enjoyed reading this book. The author's writing style has wit and made the story come together. Can't wait to read more!

Started out a little slow but when it finally picks up its awesome. And I love the fact that it didn't cost as much. Worth every penny and then some. I have paid way more and been soo disappointed. I say its a must read!!!!

About the author

Katie never knew she was a writer. Her childhood obsessions centered on old movies, costumes, fashion, playing dress up, and books. Lots of books. On her quest to play make believe for a living she decided she wanted to be a fashion designer and after satisfying her practical parents by graduating from UCLA with a BA in Communication Studies she went on to pursue her design dreams with a Professional Designation in Fashion Design from FIDM. She spent five years helping to design romantic dresses that were sold everywhere from Anthropologie to Nordstrom before the economic downturn led to a career shift and that practical degree came in handy. Now in charge of the ecommerce business for In Bloom Lingerie, she was asked to start the company blog. Not knowing what to say about lingerie but needing to use bridal keywords, she decided to start a fictional serial about how a girl named Olivia Bloom, who worked for In Bloom Lingerie, became engaged. And that's when Katie fell in love with storytelling and the path to make believe became clear. She hasn't looked back since.
