Brett Shackley came to Hollywood for a taste of the fast life and hot, famous men. He never expected to find love behind the scenes.
Brett Shackley has watched his best friend find love with a famous actor. His connections have also given him the opportunity to work as a personal assistant to another Who’s-Who in Hollywood. He’s a bit flamboyant and perhaps a tad too giddy when he settles on a new celebrity crush. So blinded by the brilliance of the bright lights headliner, he fails to see what’s right before his eyes.
Brett follows his boss to yet another movie set, preparing to scope out the new faces on the latest project. Sadly, it also means he’s sidelined with all the other assistants and behind the camera crew. Brett doesn’t mind too much as long as a certain actor gets a shirtless scene—and soon!
Eddie Huff has been around a couple of years. He knows a thing or two about playing it cool. The fact that Brett, a fellow personal assistant to the stars, is going gaga over Eddie’s A-list boss annoys him. What’s worse is that he now has to stay in close proximity with Brett. He gets to hear each longing sigh and flattering gush of superlatives— every single day. It’s enough to drive a guy insane.
What’s worse is, Eddie begins to suspect that he might be just a teeny bit jealous that Brett’s single-minded attention is wasted on a star who couldn’t care less about anyone except himself.
Eddie thinks Brett might be the man for him. Now he has to convince the starry-eyed novice that the right heartthrob for the part isn’t the guy in front of the camera.

Heartthrob is the third installment in Mia Watts Hollywood Hotties series. Each book works as a stand-alone. Brett has a small role in each book, but Eddie is a completely new face for the series. As for characters from previous books making an appearance, they are barely even mentioned in this one. So feel safe in going into this book without having read the others.
Glitz and glamour and all the jazz of stardom has drawn Brett into the folds of Hollywood. His friend Dar (Ryan Pierce) has helped him get a job as a personal assistant to an actor. Brett is over the moon excited about this. The job opportunity puts him in close proximity of his latest celebrity crush Damon Dexter. Dexter’s own personal assistant Eddie knows what Damon is like behind the scenes. Eddie can’t for the life of him understand why the beautiful Brett would be even remotely attracted to Damon. Eddie was born and raised in LA and completely understands that all that glitz can make even the ugly pretty.
As it turned out Brett was a little too flakey to ever really like. Brett’s childishness and his actions that got Eddie into some trouble with his boss just made it difficult for me to understand the attraction. Eddie is responsible and very mature. He was in part responsible for opening the door that allowed Brett to make a wrong decision even worse. The only thing that made sense about Eddie and Brett being a couple was two hotties getting some action in Hollywood.
