About the Author

I’ve always written stories for myself, but didn’t even think of being an author until I realised that being over thirty and living in a fantasy world was a little odd. Writing those same stories for other people makes it a lot more acceptable!
By day I dress in cargo pants and boots for my not-so-glamorous job of making movies but at night I come home to my two little Princesses, in Johannesburg, South Africa, where I live, and I get to write Happy Ever Afters. Since I believe every girl is a princess, and every princess deserves a happy ending, what could be more perfect?

Nina Alexander is a famous actress who's been nominated for a prestigious award, but she doesn't win it. When on the same night her boyfriend asks her to marry her and she has to turn him down, because she doesn't love him, it can't get any worse. Only then there's a small problem with her dress... Fortunately stuntman Dominic Kelly rescues her. He takes Nina away on his motorbike so she can escape the paparazzi.

To rescue her career Nina needs a great role and she knows which one she wants. Only to get it she has to toughen up. She hires Dominic to train her, so she will be more than prepared for the auditions. Nina can stay at his home to escape the media for a while. Being with Dominic isn't easy, he makes her work very hard. She has to conquer her fears on both a professional and a personal level. She's starting to like Dominic more and more and the feeling is mutual. They're both beautiful, no strings attached people. Dominic is exactly what Nina needs, but is she also what he needs?

Not a Fairy Tale is a wonderful story about fame. Nina seems to have it all, but her life in the public domain can be exhausting. She leads quite a solitary life. Dominic is the exact opposite, he's hardly ever alone. Women love him and his sisters are taking good care of him. He always has company and everyone is happy to be around him. I liked these two opposites. Nina and Dominic are both people with a good heart and it was great to see them do things that were out of their comfort zones. The tension between them is such a great part of this book.

The story is highly entertaining and the main characters are fun. Romy Sommer has also managed to give her characters some depth and personal baggage, which makes Not a Fairy Tale an even better read. I liked this book a lot and think it's the perfect summer read. It has all the right ingredients and the execution is perfect.

Not a Fairy Tale, Romy Sommer
Genre:  Romance
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews 
I’ve read some of Romy’s novels and enjoyed them so looked forward to this one. I enjoy contemporary romance which has a bit of drama in it and this sounded great.
Nina, I liked her, was curious about her background as she’s clearly ambitious, and it seems to have started from events in her teens. She’s not the obnoxious career actress, the ones that treat others as lesser though. She and her PA get along well, though her agent and publicist were a bit advantageous whenever they chance arose. She’s after a role that she’s wanted since she first read the books many years back, but so far she’s had ditzy rom com parts, and not the kick arse type this one needs, so she has to show that she can do that. Dom agrees to train her, and they spend the next six weeks getting her fit and experienced at many different things. Dom’s a ladies man through and through, but Nina seems to be one of the few that he’s not moved in on. She’s sad in a way about that, he’s gorgeous and she’s long held a crush on him. Dom does like her, is attracted to her but thinks she deserves someone permanent, and he isn’t up for that. Love them and leave them is his motto and everyone knows that before they start.
Of course once the training gets more hands on so do they, and the steam quickly builds...Dom’s four sisters like her and try to push him forward, but they both agree its the six weeks while she’s there and then move on for them. Dom needs to take time off then for personal reasons which he keeps secret, and hopefully Nina will be involved in the new film. Best laid plans though...and they find they aren’t ready to let go but each think the other is happy to move on.

'Not a Fairy Tale' is a romantic story set in glamorous Hollywood. Nina is an 'A' list actress, Oscar night, does not go as planned and when her Prince Charming offers her marriage, she runs in the opposite direction with the help of her very own knight in shining armour, Dominic.

Nina's life is not the fairy tale she hoped for. She lives alone, in a soulless, if secure environment with an entourage rather than family or friends. Her tragic past would make a good movie but she hides from it and doesn't share, until she runs into Dominic, the stunt professional who has problems of his own.

To cope with her disappointment and avoid the backlash of her humiliation at the Oscars she hires Dominic to whip her into to shape for the female lead in the latest YA film sensation. She gains mental strength in addition to her physical toughness and finds out the true meaning of friendship and family. Like all the best stories, there is an unexpected turn of events, which makes her run back to the life she knows, making the fairy tale ending you want for her unlikely.

Dominic is sexy but a commitment phobe. He agrees to help Nina on a whim but doesn't bargain for the life changing consequences. Is he destined to be broken hearted, or has he done enough to convince Nina they have a future together?

Beautifully written, the sexual tension between Nina and Dominic is delicious. When the passion finally explodes, it makes for some steamy love scenes. For me though, it was the romance, humour and misunderstanding that makes this such a winning story. Nina is likeable when she reveals her true self and Dominic is much more than the loveable rogue, he first appears to be.
