Green Eyes by Amanda Heath

Title: Green Eyes
Author: Amanda Heath
Genre: Adult Romance
Published: February 5, 2016

My name is Alexis Michaels and my life is pretty lonely. Don’t feel sorry for me, I’ve made it that way.
Ten years ago my family did things to lose my trust and stomped all over my love. If I never see any of them again it’ll be too soon. Bitterness and betrayal make me a very angry girl.
Five years ago I made a horrible mistake when I fell in love with the wrong man. I also got pregnant and had the most beautiful baby girl in the world. I’m terrified every day that my actions could come back to haunt me and she’ll have to pay the price.
Now I’m on the set of the first movie I’ll have filmed since I got pregnant. My leading man is a sexy asshole named Ryan Danse. Our chemistry is out of this world. We’re sure to make movie gold. The Australian actor makes me feel things I don’t want to feel. I’ve closed my heart off from the world and I refuse to open it ever again. That only leads to ultimate heartbreak.
Ryan’s connected though, connected to my family. I just know if I open my heart to him, I’ll have to let them in as well. It’s hard to keep myself closed off from him when he looks at me with those intense blue eyes. 
Maybe I’m too hard, maybe I’m just a bitch, but forgiving a decade-old hurt I’ve left open, bleeding and infected, isn’t something I’m willing to do just because I love the way his hands feel on my body or the way he calls me green eyes. 
I find myself wanting to tell him my secrets. I crave the touch of his hands. I long for his eyes to fall upon me and all that other mushy crap. I’m so obsessed I might do just about anything to have the love of this man.

Rating: ☆☆☆☆

Maximum angst with a side of a soap which made for a great story!
Alexis Michaels seems to epitomize the stereotypical angst of a Hollywood star. With hang ups galore, Alexis has not worked in five years due to the changes in her life and the feelings of anxiety and pending doom she cannot shake. She’s trying hard though to rid herself of the bitterness she still holds against her family as she tries to make a balanced, healthy and happy world for her daughter to grow up in. Throw in a new movie, a sexy co-star with ties to her past and she has to try even harder to stay on an even keel. And that is hard to do when your hands are off the steer and around someone you know, you know, is going to shake up your very deliberate world…
I loved this over the top story of redemption, love and forgiveness. Ryan Danse and Alexis are attracted to each other from the start but she is not going to give in easily. The sexual attraction can’t be denied, however, and when love follows there is nothing they can do but be swept along for the ride. Ryan is the perfect foil to Alexis as his steadfast love and determination to get through to her keeps her grounded and moving forward to take control over her life once again. Marley, Talia and the siblings are the best of supportive characters as the two love and battle it out.
I laughed, I cried and realized I found a new author I am going to enjoy stalking. *ahem* Folllowing. Following from a safe and respective distance.

“Scheming exes, secrets that could destroy and old grudges make for a great Hollywood story. It's been a while since Ms. Heath released a book and this one is well worth the read!” ~Three Chicks
“This was a hot and sexy storm of these two making a movie and don't have just on screen chemistry, its off the charts HOT!” ~Swoon Worthy Books

I live in southern Arkansas with my husband and young daughter. There is also an insane Boston Terrier running around. I've always been a lone wolf and find my friends in books. I started writing at a young age and I haven't stopped since. Most days you can find me either glued to my laptop or my kindle. My first novel, This Beautiful Thing was an Amazon best seller for 11 weeks and a year later I'm still tickled to see people enjoy it. I may not be a huge seller but I have the best fans ever and I thank God everyday for every single one of them.
