Title: Malibu Secrets
On the verge of losing the Malibu home she inherited from her great-aunt, Addi Dekker is completely failing to prove to her family she can make it as a writer. Not exactly how a girl proves her independence. If she doesn’t want to give up her dream and go back to the soul-sucking job she just left, Addi has to swallow her dislike of Hollywood and rent the house out to the sexy-as-hell film producer.
And maybe (shhhh!) save money by secretly living there, too.
Roque Gallagher is pouring his heart and savings into his first independent film to make the industry acknowledge him for his talent and not just his family name. Addi’s home is perfect for the shoot, but she’s far too tempting. He’s never been able to handle work and a relationship, and this is the film of a lifetime. Between a shrinking budget and his director quitting, the last thing he needs is a sexy-as-sin tease like Addi. And he has a feeling there's something she's hiding...

This is a romance between Addi, a romance novelist, and Roque, an independent filmmaker. Addi quit her corporate job to write full time and she’s having trouble paying the bills. The house she inherited from her great aunt is now in foreclosure and she needs money in order to keep it. Her family has always thought she couldn’t fend for herself so she doesn’t want to ask for their help. Roque wants to rent the house for a movie and Addi begrudgingly agrees. If she moved out she would have no where to live so she writes in the contract that they cover her expense to stay in a hotel. She decides to pocket the money and secretly sleep in the attic. She figures she can get the house out of foreclosure that much faster.
Roque is a workaholic. He is doing his film independently and all costs are his costs. When he finds he’s attracted to Addi, he’s not sure how to react-he doesn’t do relationships. You can guess how the story builds from here.
Although the plot was a bit predictable, I enjoyed the story. It’s a good romance when it can tug at your heartstrings! The courtship was a very slow burn but thankfully picked up. When it did, the chemistry was searing and I was a fan of these two. There are some super sexy scenes to boot!
Malibu Secrets is my first book by M.K. Meredith and I really liked her writing. Her characters were likeable and believable and the story was convincing and uplifting. Overall the story was engaging and I felt happy reading it.
