The Seat Filler

This celebrity romance by Sariah Wilson was pretty fun. Some parts seemed implausible to me (like the misunderstanding that tears them apart at one point), but the author did a good job at the end making you semi-believe it could happen. It wasn’t my favorite Sariah Wilson book, but I still enjoyed it a lot. She always does a great job at immersing you into the Hollywood lifestyle.

Juliet Nolan, our heroine in this one, is helping out her best friend by being a seat-filler for a Hollywood award’s night (so the venue looks at full capacity on camera). She ends up being assigned to sit next to Noah Douglas, the heartthrob bigtime actor that she’s been in love with since junior high. But when he talks down to her, thinking she’s a stalker, she tells him she’s never heard of him before and tries to knock his ego down a peg or two. The two get further tangled up later when she ends up at his house to wash his dog (she’s a dog groomer).

It’s a silly story line (yet one many people probably dream about), but this author makes it work. That’s one reason I like her books. She writes fun characters and has crazy celebrity stories, and does a decent job making you journey into the lifestyle of the rich and famous vicariously. If you want a light, fun read to take your mind off your troubles, this is a great book to do that. I definitely recommend it.
