The Average Girl Book Review

Title: The Average Girl
Author: Angelina Goode
Publisher: Beach Blanket Publishing
Pages: 228
Genre: Romantic Comedy

Being average can lead to wonderful things…  
Olivia Fowler, helper of the star-struck, runs a successful business helping average people meet celebrities in everyday ways. Flawless at what she does, the celebrities don’t have a clue they’re part of a pre-planned meeting. Business is booming and Olivia knows everything there is to know about Hollywood’s famous and their behavior. Her clients trust her because she is just like them, not famous. 
But when Olivia accidentally meets the super-famous Alexander Young at the grocery store, her world is flipped upside-down. She can’t possibly resist those charming eyes and sexy arms. As their romance blossoms, Olivia learns she may not know as much as she thought she did about celebrities and their ways. 
Then Olivia’s most important and loyal client requests to meet Alexander. Suddenly, Olivia is forced to choose between her love and her business. 
Will Olivia be able to keep her booming business a secret from her soon-to-be boyfriend? Will her clients still trust her if she is no longer the average girl? 
My Thoughts:
This is one bid mess for Olivia but then again, she has a really unusual type of job! I don't know if this is really a "real" job, but if it is, what a job to have!
I personally would have told him right up front what I did for a living once I knew it was going beyond a 2nd date. Why would you wait longer?
By then you both have more invested in the new relationship and to avoid a trust issue later on, is just too much stress to be worth it and why would you want to worry every single day when the shoe was going to drop?
Gosh,there is so much stuff to sort through and worry about with new relationships that I just don't get why you wouldn't say what is important to know right away. If it is a deal breaker, it's better to know right away then to have a broken heart later on?
Away, it's a really good story because of Olivia's job and how it reeks some havoc on her love life. It's a nice cozy romantic story that you can actually enjoy without any hidden plots that sometimes authors try to insert into romantic books like murders or other drama.
Happy Reading!
About the Author:
Angelina Goode began writing as a teenager. Though her first works were poems about love-struck teenagers, she grew her craft while earning her degree in Journalism and Creative Writing. A former grade school teacher that loved teaching children to write, she enjoys finding creative ways to present everyday events.

Now she primarily writes light-hearted contemporary women’s fiction. She lives in Los Angeles where she enjoys the occasional celebrity sighting and year-round sun.

Angelina started gaining first-hand fan and celebrity experience as a devoted follower of her generation’s boy band. Her experience shifted in college when she interned in the promotions department for a Los Angeles based radio station and for the public relations department of a network television station.

There she was able to learn about the ins and outs of promoting celebrities and all the backstage activities that are rarely seen by the public eye. She was also able to observe fans’ behavior from an objective perspective, seeing what it looks like to an outside observer.

Now she combines her experience as a loyal fan attending numerous concerts and meet and greets every year, her brief but educational stint in the entertainment industry, and a highly active imagination to create fiction for celebrity lovers of all ages.
I thought that some of my readers might enjoy this book so I am giving my paperback copy to one winner. Open in the Continental U.S. only. Good Luck Everyone!
