Book Review – Wardrobe Malfunction by Samantha Towle

wardrobe-malfunctionVaughn West, Hollywood heartthrob, has been at the top of his game for years. He thinks he’s untouchable—until a betrayal brings him spiraling down. Now, everyone pities him, and if there’s one thing Vaughn hates, it’s pity.

After a few months of working his way through every available actress, pop star, model, and waitress in California, Vaughn needs to get his life back on track and focus on what he does best—making hit movies.

Charlotte Michaels is in love. Just not with one person.
Louis Vuitton…
Christian Dior…
Valentino…
Gucci…
And the list goes on.

Sadly, Charly’s limited bank account doesn’t allow her those luxuries, and the closest she gets are lucky finds in charity shops and working closely with some of those names in her job as a wardrobe assistant.  Now, Charly has landed the mother of all jobs—working on the new Vaughn West movie. Excited doesn’t even cut it.  Only things don’t go as planned, and it turns out that Vaughn is actually a jerk. A hot jerk, but a jerk nonetheless. So, why do their clothes keep falling off whenever they’re around each other? And why can’t Charly keep her mind in the closet and off Vaughn?  Getting mixed up with a smart-mouthed, fashion-obsessed wardrobe assistant is the last thing Vaughn needs.  Getting mixed up with an arrogant, self-centered, obnoxious, jumped-up actor who has a lack of respect for fashion is the last thing Charly needs.  Things are about to get hot, dirty, and messy in Hollywood. Very messy. Especially if Charly’s closely guarded secret falls out of her closet.

review

What a little gem I found here!  Wardrobe Malfunction is an adorable story about Vaughn West, Hollywood heartthrob, who is deceived by his girlfriend on national TV and is devastated by his betrayal.  His manager tells him to pull himself out of the gutter and gets him a job on the next big Hollywood movie.

While Vaughan is getting fitted for wardrobe, he meets Charly Michaels, his wardrobe assistant.  They don’t hit it off right away – at all.  In fact, Vaughn was kind of a jerk to Charly.  But Charly has a smart mouth and a big spirit, and isn’t scared off by Vaughn.

The banter in this book between Vaughn and Charly was really funny.  I laughed out loud several times.  I loved Vaughn’s family, especially his grandma.

One minor point – the way Vaughn was described as looking in the book is nothing like the guy on the cover; kind of annoying.

The book was fast paced, funny and believable.  Overall, this was a good read and I would recommend it.

Happy reading and have a nice weekend.
