  Book 3 - Chasing The Dream
(Book 3 of the Dream Series)
  Blurb
Phoebe Fairchild didn’t have a great first year of college. In fact, it stunk! She realized she’d chosen a major, Physics, that didn’t suit her. And worse than that, a boyfriend who was a first-class jerk.   When she visited her mother in New York for Spring Break, Phoebe decided that a transfer to a new university, a thousand miles from her current one, and a new major were definitely in order. With a little assistance from her mother’s friend, Jack Stevens, Phoebe worked a transfer to NYU and an internship at a major TV network. Phoebe moved into her mother’s old apartment and, with her super sexy neighbor, Kevin Parker, figured out The Big Apple. But the biggest challenge was be her internship assignment: Personal Assistant to mega star, Chase Smythe. Since she was nine years old, Phoebe had been starry-eyed for the blond haired, blue eyed actor. Her room had been practically wallpapered in Chase Smythe pullouts from the teen magazines. But Chase Smythe wasn’t the charming, sexy actor on TV and in the movies he starred in, or how he behaved in interviews. No. Seemed that over the years, stardom had jaded him. In real life, Chase was full of himself, lazy and left a path of destruction in his wake that had been well concealed by his former ‘handlers.’ Now it was Phoebe’s job to rein him in. Nonetheless, there is a spark. Phoebe was warned to not cave into his charms, as fake as they are, but there’s more than just his charm. There’s chemistry. Is it real? Or is it an act? Will Chase let Phoebe in to see the real person, not the just TV personality?

BOOK REVIEW
Kay's Review


I hadn't read the first two book sin the series before reading this but it is easy to get into this story.

Phoebe is a young girl who has to deal with the aftermath of a break up with her boyfriend who turns out to be a complete jerk. After moving to New York, she starts a new job where she's given an assignment to babysit her childhood crush. On the face of it, Chase is the typical bad boy celebrity. When things heat up between them Phoebe is wary because he has so many traits similar to her ex.

I enjoyed this story because the characters had so many layers and from the start to the end you could see the progression with the characters are each of the matured. I didn't always agree with some of their choices but I understood them. They were flawed, engaging, and altogether human. And the secondary characters add to an entertaining read.

This is well written and I enjoyed the writing style. I enjoyed this so much I've downloaded the previous books in the series.

Author Bio 
 The short story: I'm the wife of a most fabulous man for twenty years. I'm a mother of 2 busy teens. I'm a dog lover. I'm a serious drinker of coffee and wine. I live near New York City. My favorite place that I've visited is Monaco. My favorite color is green (but I look best in pink/salmon). My favorite food is chocolate. My favorite kind of music is New Country.   The long story: I've always been a creative sort of person... I started with my college studies in Advertising Design and Illustration. I'm good at drawing and coming up with clever ideas. As for story telling - well, that's where I have the most fun! Ditching The Dream is my first novel, but I've been working on writing movies since, what seems like forever. Way back in high school my friend Aimee and I started writing a movie and I was hooked. We didn't know what we were doing, but we loved coming up with the story. I also like to come up with stories about people I don't know. Like the guy that cut me off on the expressway...He had quite a story - at least in my mind! Who knows? Maybe I've come up with a story about you! ;)   Ditching The Dream is a story that came to me while I was helping two author friends of mine. I was helping them with their books and I would make suggestions to amp up their stories along the way. Bev and Amy encouraged me to write my own story and Ditching The Dream was born. Is it auto-biographical? No, not in the least. But it sure has been a fun story to come up with (especially when my hubby gets involved with coming up with ideas).
