Closed Set by Julia Harlow

Summary from Goodreads:

Cassandra Carlson is working on her five-year plan. A professional dancer, she moved to Los Angeles to work at her best friend's Hollywood dance studio. She decides she can put up with the glitterati for the time being until she saves enough to open her own studio back home in Cincinnati. When soon-to-be A-list British actor, Christopher Edwards, comes to her for dance lessons for his new film, the attraction is instantaneous and intense. Both are young, available and strikingly beautiful, but while she finds Hollywood garish and superficial, he's on the brink of realizing his life's ambition with no inclination for a serious relationship. Or so he thinks. Just when their white-hot desire can no longer be denied, a jealous actress targets Cassandra in an insidious scheme, and a powerful studio head poses a formidable threat to them both. Cassandra puts herself in jeopardy in order to protect Christopher, but will she lose him in the process?


Unfortunately, Closed Set is another DNF for me. I read the first few chapters but found it to be completely ridiculous! I was so excited about the idea of a dancer and a celebrity coming together and obviously having a romance but the beginning was so soap opera-y to me. I was liking Cassandra but then Christopher was so panicked about Kyle (I think that's his name...I forget already) and I felt like he was practically forcing Cassandra to spend the night. And I'm sure if I had kept reading, I would find that they were going to have sex. The story just wasn't believable to me because of how rushed it starts out and it turned me off right away.

Rating: DNF
