As if it isn’t bad enough that that her favorite cousin is getting married and leaving her behind, Sofie’s unexpected pregnancy—and noticeable lack of boyfriend—is causing quite the scandal in her overbearing and overly traditional family.
To make the wedding extra embarrassing, the guest list includes Jackson Coles, friend of the groom and international movie star…who just so happens to be the hottest man on the planet. Sofie has been dying to meet Jackson, the subject of countless fantasies, for ages—she just never expected her big chance would come when she was knocked up.
When the ceremony ends and the party gets started, Sofie will find that weddings—and movie stars—can be full of surprises.
And that Jackson Coles is a much better kisser than she had ever imagined.
**This is a stand-alone short story of 11,000 words (approximately 30 pages). This short story has a happy ending featuring characters from Rachel Schurig’s popular Lovestruck series. This story can be read alone and has no cliffhanger.**
But everything changes when her cousin Lizzie marries Jackson’s co-star, Thomas. Suddenly, Sofie finds herself actually meeting Jackson Coles, up close and personal. It’s every fan girl’s dream come true. And to Sofie’s shock, Jackson seems just as excited to spend time with her.
Despite Jackson’s attentions, Sofie knows that real life is rarely like the movies. Real life means struggling as a single mother, running out of money, and dealing with a loving but frustratingly obtrusive family. Not to mention the heaps of Baby Daddy Drama that continue to plague her…and threaten to take away the very thing she holds most dear in life. There’s simply no room in her life to go chasing after a movie star, even one as gorgeous as Jackson Coles.
But when Jackson shows that he’s more than willing to do the chasing, Sofie has a big decision to make. Will she play it safe? Or will she risk everything for the perfect Hollywood ending of her own?
