About the Book:
Action film star Adam Feltworth’s last movie flopped big time, yet he’s offered one last chance to star in a romantic drama alongside the up-and-coming actress, Sara Leigh. Adam has never filmed sexy scenes with a full-figured woman, but he’s been warned—it’s this or retirement.
Throughout her career, Sarah has portrayed the fat, supportive best friend. With her breakout movie, Chemistry, she hopes to finally bring the pleasingly plump heroine into the mainstream spotlight. Knowing Adam’s history of preferring svelte beauties, she doesn’t want him for the part.
When Adam first holds Sarah during the screen test, a spark ignites that neither one expects. Now Adam’s problem is bigger than simply filming a hit movie to save his floundering career. He needs to prove to Sarah that she’s the only woman he desires…both on and off the screen.

Eve Hart's Romance Review:
For a book entitled CHEMISTRY, it lacked exactly that--chemistry.
This was my first book by Sam Crescent, and I know she's done a lot of short erotic stories, but for someone who writes short erotic stories, this one was LAME.
Adam and Sarah are thrown together on the casting couch, and suddenly hard-ass, man-diva, boy-slut, Adam is strangely attracted to a plump co-star? BTW, since when is size 16 PLUS SIZED?! A woman with curves is sexy as hell, especially when she walks and lives with confidence.
Adam and Sarah have NO real chemistry in this story. The one actual love scene left me cold, rolling my eyes, and begging for it to end. The dialogue was lame, and the two main characters are one dimensional. They'd be TWO dimensional if I had any clue what they looked like. I mean, did I miss the part where the author described either Sarah OR Adam? It was like reading a book about two CONCEPTS of people and not actual people. Like watching two silhouettes have hot, fake sex on a conference room table. Honestly, there was more believable emotion in their ACTING scene then there was between them "off the set."
The blurb is misleading. "Knowing Adam’s history of preferring svelte beauties, she doesn’t want him for the part." I call bullshit on that. She went to bat for him with the producers and directors wanted to toss him.
Also, this book seemed more like a 2nd draft rather than the FINAL draft of the manuscript. It still needed, at least, one more run through with the developmental editor. There were rookie mistakes (same mistakes I've made in my own books, back when I didn't know any better) that really took me out of the story. Example: repeating the same words or phrases in the same one to two paragraphs. and I mean EXACT same phrases, not derivations of phrases -- "Heat rushed through her..." Five words later..."Heat rushed through her..." (example only, not actually words from the book). This makes me wonder at the lack of creativity used to craft this Chemistry FAIL.
As with all books I've read and gifted with negative reviews, I hold no disrespect or dislike of the author personally. With that said, I will not read another Sam Crescent book.
