Rules of Seduction: Jenna Mullins

**ARC Provided by author via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.**

The number one rule that everyone should learn from this book is:

This is literally the entire book. NEVER. TRUST. ANYONE. Especially in Hollywood, because they are all bad people.

Dani moves out to Hollywood a bright-faced naive person, and within one week, pretty much everything is terrible. Day One for example; no job, a roommate she thinks is crazy, her old friend asking her to do some crazy shit.

I mean seriously, what is wrong with these people. Nothing, other than they are self obsessed people with a separate room just for their egos. Dani grows up and gets thick skin pretty quick while working on the set of Vamp Camp (I found this title to be hilarious, because let's be honest, if this were actually a show, it would have just as high of a rating as it did in the book), and attempting to "seduce" the male lead Tate Lawrence. 

I really liked Tate, and what everyone did to him was crap, I would have been much more pissed off than he was. He and Elise were an interesting couple, but I'm glad that everything worked out the way it did.

I liked Dani's roommate, she cheered me up and make the book a bit more lighthearted. She was pretty funny, and I enjoyed all the craziness of what she cooked (or attempted to) and her love life. I think that Dani should have manned up much earlier in the book, and told Tate what was going on. She kept saying that she was sick of what people did to each other in Hollywood, but she acted just like them.

Tate and Dani's interactions were well written, and I looked forward to when they hung out together. Overall, a decent book, but pretty predictable. It was a fairly short read, but was so cute that it made me smile most of the time. I recommend this one to romantics who love HEAs with a bit of free time on their hands.
