I liked the first book in this series but I LOVED this book. I absolutely adore Joel and Alessandra. I love how determined Joel is to get Alessandra to be his. No matter how many knock backs, he never gave up. There is just something about him that makes me want to hug him – I don’t know why!
I liked Alessandra; she is a strong independent woman. She is a hard worker and a good mother. Although Alessandra was attracted to Joel, she didn’t want to risk her job or her heart. When Alessandra let her ex’s words get into her head, I wanted to shout at her to ignore him.
I like everything from the sexual tension, the humour and the banter. Joel and Alessandra’s texts had me in stitches of laughter numerous times.
The storyline for this book is easy to follow and an enjoyable read.
Joel Kline is Hollywood’s hottest actor. Whilst in a bar with his best friend Killian, Joel spots a beautiful woman. Although his attempts to ‘’pull’’ her were shot down, Joel isn’t going to give up. Alessandra isn’t interested in players like Joel. It is soon revealed that Alessandra is Joel’s new make up artist. As the pair spends more time together they soon grow close but will Joel break through Alessandra’s walls? Will Joel get the woman he wants?
Title: How You Get The Girl
Author: Jessica Florence
Genre: Contemporary Romance
This was my first time reading a book by this particular author, it's the second in the series but can totally be read as a standalone.
How You Get The Girl was a perfectly wrapped package filled with romance and lots of charming sweet moments the banter was brilliant and there was many laugh out loud moments that had me chuckling away. I loved the storyline it was beautifully written and flowed along at an even pace, the characters were brilliant a sexy sweet hero with a strong yet vulnerable heroine who's the single mother of a likeable 13yr old boy along with other secondary characters made this an enjoyable read earning a solid 4 stars out of 5 from me.
The authors style of writing was right up my street and I'll definitely be checking out her other stuff.
I always get excited for a new Jessica Florence release and she never disappoints. It was fun to see characters from the Long Drive make a few appearances in this book and get caught up on where they are in life since the book ended. Also, the Long Drive did not need to be read before How You Get the Girl. Both are standalones with cross-over characters.
The combination of Joel and Alessandra was fun to read. Their relationship was funny, fierce, and at times frustrating but in a good way because it kept me rooting (or yelling – depending on what was going on) for their relationship.
This is a fun read that I found myself unable to put down once I started. I definitely recommend this book and every other book by this author!
The story was light and fun with the right amount of sexy. Exactly what I look for in a book. Joel was hilarious and I loved how the theme song carried on into this book.
I love Jessica Florence's style of writing and she is one of my go to authors that I one-click without reading the blurb. This is another book that will go onto my reread pile for when I'm in a slump.

And he did. everything.
Allesandra was a feisty, funny lady who was also a kick butt mom. I love strong women who just rock at taking care of themselves and their kids. When it came down to it she learned she could have a partner.
I adored the interaction with Jensen. He's a crazy cool kid. Lots of laugh out loud moments.
I have only a few slight peeves and it's really that I wanted more. More real life experience on how they made it work once they all became a family. I just feel a little greedy.
My Theme Song at the end was
"YOU LEFT ME WANTING MORE"
And that's not a bad thing at all.
Other than that slight hiccup, this book gets two thumbs up & is definitely a re-read, and definitely one that I want a paperback of one of these days! : )
Movie Star gets the girl! Jessica Florence yet again made me smile and swoon and stay up until the wee morning hours because I NEEDED to finish this story!
Movie stars (and rock stars) don't always work for me because of the fact that they are often on the nasty side. I didn't get that vibe from Joel at all. Was he a ladies man? Yes! But, when he met Alessandra, he knew he wanted more with her and he set out to prove that he was not the player she thought him to be
<b>HERO~</b>I enjoyed Joel! He was witty, sexy and his dedication to Alessandra was so endearing. Once he met her, there was NO ONE else for him. He had a playboy reputation. A famous actor who could get any woman he wanted, and did. Until he met his girl. Where other women jumped on his cheesy pick up lines, Alessandra wasn't moved. Joel knew that she was special and if he was going to get the girl, he had to use more action than words.
<b>HEROINE~</b>I'm tough on heroines. I don't like a doormat, yet I can't stand an alpha female. Alessandra was a perfect mix of strong and vulnerable. She was a single mom of a 13 year old boy, raising him since birth alone. She worked hard to provide for them and did it well. However, she had been deserted by her boyfriend at 17, pregnant and alone, so he could pursue his acting. So I did understand her hesitancy to let Joel in.
<b>SEXUAL HISTORY~</b>Joel wasn't a manwhore, but he wasn't a saint. As a single Hollywood elite, he'd been with many but that all changed when he met Alessandra-
<b> “But you are a casanova. Bet you’ve slept with a bunch of women here, haven’t you?” She was wrong about that, but I didn’t feel like correcting her. She had this notion in her head that I was a huge manwhore. I did have sex, lots of it. But I wasn’t a manwhore like she was thinking. And even though I wanted her more than anything, I never mixed business and pleasure. I had a reputation for professionalism. You could ask anyone in Hollywood—they would tell you that I never slept with my coworkers, something most actors and actresses couldn’t say.</b>
Alessandra was a single mom who didn't go out much. An occasional ONS was all she had, and that had been a long time ago. Her priority was being a mom and being there with him.
<b>OM DRAMA ~</b> Nothing other than a phone call from the dead beat ex who planted seeds of doubt in her head
<b>OW DRAMA~</b>There was no OW for Joel whatsoever. There was a classic misunderstanding of a photo that caused a significant rift in the relationship. (I wish they had cleared it up faster)
<b>ENDING~ </b>There was an adorable epilogue 2 month out. It made me laugh because it was so "them" . I wish there was a better look into their future though.
I loved the who "theme song" aspect of the story. It was fun and sweet. I want more from this gang. I haven't had my fill!
♫ Run away
Don’t let him mess with your mind
He’ll tell you anything you want to hear
He’ll break your heart
It’s just a matter of time
But just remember
He’s a good time cowboy casanova ♫
Cowboy Casanova by Carrie Underwood.
Joel Kline is Hollywood's hottest actor, getting a woman to warm his bed has never been a problem. So the moment he spotted her at the bar, he wanted her. She was just looking for a one night stand but Joel and his "casanova" vibes were a no-no. Things didn't turn out as expected, but that doesn't mean they couldn't change later.
I LOVED Joel! He was everything.
♫ Maneater, make you work hard
Make you spend hard
Make you want all, of her love
She's a maneater...♫
Maneater by Nelly Furtado.
Alessandra Rose is a makeup artist. She didn't think that she would see Joel again but fate has a funny way of coming around. So she ended up working in the same movie as Joel. She's not looking for a relationship, but how in the world is she going to ignore the attraction she feels toward him? And more when it feels like their fates are intertwined.
Jessica Florence serves up a delicious serving of sexy wit and lots of fun in this charming tale of a man and a woman living in different worlds but that fate put together for one reason, LOVE.
The only downer I found here was Alessandra. I did like her, but there were some moments when I really wanted to vag punched her. Joel was perfect. PERFECT. And it annoyed me to no end that he was the one doing all the work. I totally understand her insecurities with her "past" and Joel's bad reputation but c'mon, he was showing you with actions that he loved you. So WHY? Wake the heck up Alessandra, if you don't want him, I do so watch your back.
How You Get The Girl is the perfect recipe of quirky and sexy. Ideal for all romance readers looking for a happy ending.
