Summary: Cameron and Shelby first fell in love on set in front of millions of viewers. They were costars on a TV show from an early age until their late teens. Circumstances force them apart and years later, they are once again brought together by another TV opportunity, this time, a reality home renovation show. Can they get over all the public mistakes they made as kids all those years ago and finally admit their love for each other?
My Thoughts: I really liked this one.
The characters were likeable, the story was engaging, and the supporting characters were phenomenal—even the antagonist. Shelby and Cameron’s love shined through, and I rooted for them all the way. The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars was the slightly missing wow factor with the final climax. I had expected a bit more punch with a lot more anxiety-filled moments, but it was simply a sweet, well-written wrapup. It was actually fitting of the characters the more I consider it.
There are a lot of sexually mature scenes. So this is definitely not appropriate for younger audiences despite the cutesy cover.
