The Passionate One by Jeanette Lewis


As the creator of the Billionaire Bride Pact, Erin Parker is determined to see it through. And now that wealthy, gorgeous Brennan Avery has been cast as her costar in a play destined for Broadway, things couldn’t be better. But Erin’s best friend, Matt Walters, isn’t ready to give up on her. He has a plan to escape the friend zone and prove to Erin that there are more important things than money and fame.

My Review: 4 Stars

"I, Erin Marie Parker, do solemnly swear, that someday I'll marry a billionaire...
OR I will have to sing the Camp Wallakee song (with bird calls) at my wedding."

Erin is a struggling actress who knows what she wants out of life and will not settle for anything less! She is the brains behind The Billionaire Bride Pact and has no intention of singing the camp song at her wedding. She WILL marry a billionaire! 

Matt is Erin's best friend and has been in love with her for years. He knows all about the pact and is bound and determined to show her that money isn't the key to finding her HEA. But when rich, handsome Brennan Avery shows up as Erin's new costar, Matt knows that he really has his work cut out for him if he's ever going to win the girl he loves. 

I. Absolutely. Loved. Matt! Seriously! I loved this guy! He is the one that saved the book for me whenever Erin was frustrating me beyond belief! (Which was often! Lol.) It didn't matter what he was doing, where he was, if she needed him, he was there for her.

I think one of my favorite parts of the book was when Matt laid it all out for Erin and opened her eyes as to how she had been treating him. She had been so caught up in everything going on around her and looking out for #1, that she really hadn't thought about exactly what she had been doing and how much she had hurt him. From that point on, she did some soul searching and realized what truly was important and who she was meant to be with. I ended up loving the new Erin. 

The Passionate One brought out so many emotions in me! I laughed, got teary eyed, got extremely frustrated, giggled and even found myself letting out little dreamy sighs! The only thing that could have made this book better for me would've been an epilogue.. even if it was just one paragraph at their wedding reception.. ;) Hehe.  

This is my very first book by Jeanette Lewis and I can tell you it won't be my last! I am excited to meet and get to know all the other Camp Wallakee girls and see them get their HEA!

And can I just say that I LOVE this casting! *dreamy sigh*
