Lauren has gone through a lot in her 18 years. I’m not going to retell the story, but I have to say that when a film crew comes to her town and she helps cater it, she doesn’t need all the drama that comes with meeting and dating the star of the movie. The drama that unfolds with just that was too much for a normal person. It’s mostly media drama. I can’t imagine reading all the bad things people wrote if I were her. How people can even get so caught up in celebrities’ lives is beyond me. I say, Get a life! This is why I usually shy away from Hollywood type books, but there is more to the Hollywood drama.
I didn’t feel any connection between Lauren and Jackson, the movie star. Lauren even says that, though she feels drawn to him, it’s just sexual. However, it seems like it could be more, or wants to be more, but just isn’t. It’s really hard to gauge what it is between them. I almost want to say it’s a paranormal trick, but I’m not sure. Plus, Jackson has a bad temper, and Lauren is smart, so why she took all his excuses and apologies is beyond me.
I loved Cary as soon as he is introduced. He is another famous star who has known Lauren and her brother all their lives. I just wish he would have stepped up and declared his feelings. Lauren goes through more heartbreak over him than she does her own “boyfriend.”
There are many other characters in this book, some more important than others. However, I can’t figure out how to talk about them without giving away the plot and climax. I will say most of them are bad. Well, the ones who were in the book more than others. Laurens network of family and friends seem really strong. Her grandma was a bit cruel in her talking down on Lauren all the time. I don’t know who was the devil in the British accent. I thought Cary was the only one with the accent and he is certainly no devil, but I might have missed that. Was there someone else? Anyone out there who knows, please tell me.
I want the next book, like, tomorrow! I have lots of guesses on some of the conversations that are leading and some of the things that happen in the story, yet Lauren hasn’t figured out what is what. I want to know! Lol! This is why I love paranormal—the possibilities are endless!
Lauren has returned home to help with a catering job at a plantation, where there is also a hollywood movie filming. It’s New Years Eve and she is at a club watching her brothers band, where she meets hot hollywood hunk, Jackson.
Jackson remembers that Lauren is working with catering and he comes and finds her on set. There is something about Lauren that pulls Jackson in, she’s not like the usual girls he meets. She treated him like a normal person.
As things progress for Jackson and Lauren there are a few obstacles that occur. Of course the hollywood groupies and fake romances with co-stars adds quite the drama. And her brothers friend Cary, that Lauren is also close to and may also have some feelings for adds a little more.
Every time he called me “love”, it made my heart beat a little faster.
I’m trying to bring my head above water, but I am failing.
There are so many unexpected twists that my head was spinning. I loved Lauren’s strength. And to have two hot men wanting you boy I was so on the fence with who I wanted to see her end up with. They both had certain things I loved and the huge secret that Lauren discovers about both of the men, wow I didn’t expect that. We end in a cliff hanger and I need to know what’s next. I am impatiently waiting for the next book in the series. If you're looking for a great read with lots of twists and surprises this is your series. 1-click and get started today.

Lauren has just returned from Minnesota after graduating. She doesn't have any real plans for the future but has decided to help a family friend with her catering business while a film crew is in town. I liked Lauren, she has gone through a lot with her family and is figuring out what comes next and that makes her relatable. She is also trying to figure out her love life when a sexy actor enters her life. There is something about him that she is drawn to.
Jackson Cruz is an actor that finds himself completely infatuated with this small town girl. He has many secrets that could change her life forever. I didn't like Jackson for Lauren. He wasn't my favorite character. I wondered why he cut himself off emotionally to her a lot of the time and I think because of that I didn't connect with him as much as I wanted to.
Cary is another actor/musician that is famous but has been a family friend to Lauren's family since they were children. He is best friends with her brother Blake. I really liked his character. I knew he was keeping secrets from Lauren but there is something about the way he cares for her and her brother that stuck out to me.
I found The Devil Has a British Accent to be a good coming of age paranormal romance. The beginning was a little bit on the long side but the ending was fast-paced and Lauren's world really changed forever. This is a to be continued story so I can't wait until the next installment.
