“…Their (Cliff and Maggie’s) relationship was honest, it was engaging and it made me both smile and cry. A well written and clever twist on the fixation with making it big in LA – sometimes accepting that what you want and what you need are two entirely different things is not as easy as you would think.” -Books Laid Bare Blog
“Author M.J. Greenway has written a believable story of life and love in L.A. This fast paced tale has all the makings a new age contemporary romance novel needs; charismatic characters, conceivable plots and a meaningful ending.” -Stephanie Lasley, from The Kindle Book Review
“… The humorous tone straight out of the gate was excellent as well as the realism all throughout the story. I jumped into Maggie’s skin wholeheartedly.” –Liv
With her 25th birthday looming, Maggie Jennings makes herself a promise… She will get a boyfriend and an acting gig within the year or break-up with Tinsel Town for good! She has a cool job as a movie studio guide, and Botoxed blondes and traffic jams have even started to grow on her. She’s using a new dating app and has a dating vlog—but she yearns for more.
Cliff Kincade is in L.A. for a wedding, but he’d much rather be back home at his Oregon ranch… Still stinging from a divorce, he’s gun-shy about women. But when he meets a cute, curvy tour guide, he’s surprised by the chemistry between them. His ranch keeps him in Oregon, though, and Maggie’s Hollywood dreams keep her in L.A., a situation that can’t possibly work.
Proximity isn’t a guarantee a relationship will succeed—and distance isn’t a guarantee it won’t… Maggie and Cliff search for happiness in the arms of others, but fate has other ideas.

Maggie and Cliff both have dreams—and dreams are a wonderful thing—but what if they’re hoping for the wrong things, and love is waiting in the one place they’d never expect?
