Take a chance on love in the limelight with Cheryl Harper's fun and flirty new series set in the wacky Elvis-themed Rock'n'Rolla Hotel.

Big shot producer KT Masters never apologizes. Especially not to showgirl waitresses. But when he tears Laura Charles's feathered costume and she gives him a piece of her mind, it sets him aflame. In fact, between Laura's feisty temper and how damn good she looks in that little number, KT wouldn't mind seeing a lot more of that costume . . . balled up next to his bed, that is.

Despite KT's arrogant attitude, Laura can't help but be drawn to him. And when he offers her the fling of a lifetime—a week spent in his gorgeous celebrity arms—she's willing to play along . . . just so long as her heart stays out of it.

But as things heat up between them, going back to the way things were isn't so easy. Could their passion be the real thing . . . or just a vacation from reality?

"Won't you be my teddy bear?" Uh, sorry. I didn't see you there.
There are books that you just know what to expect even before you read it. With Stuck on You,  I knew it was going to be a cute story with a little cheesiness. Its not for everybody, but I happen to like cute and cheesy. I've wanted to read it for a couple weeks and when I signed up for the blog tour for Can't Help Falling in Love (2nd book in the series), I dived right into Stuck on You. I enjoyed the book so much, I stayed up until 3AM just to finish it. The characters were adorably flawed. It took me a couple chapters to warm up to KT. He starts off sounding like an arrogant ass, but as the book starts flowing, he turns into a sweet character with a sad history. Laura, on the other hand, had me at the first page. With a teenage hellion, I mean daughter, Laura had to be resilient. She's a strong character that gives all her love to her daughter, but has no one to show her love in return. Once KT and Laura meet, the zingers start flying. The banter between these two were both hysterically funny and sweet. Their romance was so cute. I loved them together and I got misty eyed when they said their goodbye's. KT putting "Teddy Bear" on Laura's phone? Aww! With these two, you could tell that this was their first relationship that counted. Although they were tender with each other, there was also a lot of miscommunication. Hmm, sounds like a lot of new relationships. Good thing they had a strong supporting cast to back them up and knock some sense into them. I was really rooting for them to wake up and smell the pineapple.
As a super quick, fun, and quirky book, I really enjoyed it. Stuck on You would make a fantastic summer read for those hot days.
