Wonderful!

This was a short but fantastic listen. The storyline captured my attention and held it from start to end. The characters are fabulous, particularly the MC. Jemma Larson knows and is very familiar with hardship. After her parents die in a car crash, she takes on the responsibility of raising her baby brother. Her blog is her only source of income. So when she takes a hit to a rival blogger, she needs to find a way to get her rating up before losing her financial source. Cab an interview with Daniel Starke, a celebrity heartthrob, be the answer?

Excellent narration by Hannah Carmona. She captures the characters' personalities and their emotions, bringing them to life. Jemma was a very enjoyable listen and, I strongly recommend it. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

intriguing and holds attention well

I really enjoyed this. Was easy to listen too and I wish I'd got the other parts when I had the opportunity. I will search them out. The story was well written and I liked that I am pretty sure who the villian is although obviously I can anticipate a twist or two. Look forward to finding the other parts.

Short and packed with a punch

I so enjoyed this quick listen. I do not care for short novels, but I gave this one a try and was pleasantly surprised. I had a lot of fun listening while I was at lunch. Of course I continued listening when I got back to my desk. Hannah Carmona is pretty new to me but she did a good job with the narration.

Jemma 1

Jemma gave up her dreams to raise her brother after her parents die. So blogging is now her life and her viewers are begging for something new and big so she is going to have to give it to them. Calling in some favors she lands an interview exclusive with a reality star. Only things go wrong, this is a fun and cute story and its definitely entertaining. My only issue was it ends abruptly and totally leaves you hanging. The narration was nice. Thanks Audiobook obsession for the recommendation.

Jemma 1

I enjoyed listening to Hannah Carmona, made the listening experience a joy.

This is a first part of a series and I am looking forward to listening to them all.

Jemma is an older sister trying to help out her younger brother, who she has been left to raise him when her parents are killed in a car crash. Jemma is also a blogger and that is how she makes her money.
She interviews the reality TV star, Daniel Starke, hoping that it would generate more interest in her blog, driving up its popularity.
Another blogger is not happy ........

Beware extreme cliffhanger

I don’t mind short books. But I hate when the first in a series ends abruptly. This one does. It’s part of a story, and just not complete.

I liked the characters. I liked the plot. But I just hate this ‘new format’ of writing a whole string of ‘novels’ that don’t stand alone.

It’s engaging. It’s steamy. If you don’t mind cliffhangers, then go for it! Narrator is really good.

I received this audiobook for free in exchange for a review.

Unputdownable

This book was absolutely fantastic and I enjoyed every second of it. I really enjoyed listing this book. I loved the author's style and she didn’t leave anything out. The story went smoothly. Easy to listen and understand the characters. Jemma is working hard to support her seven year old brother Robbie. She has her blog entertainment with Jem, and she does interviews with actor Daniel Starke. The sparks fly through the roof when he meets her. Jemma is in competition with another blogger named Ali.  I loved the narration of this book.

Exciting start to this series!

I love books like this. Short, well thought out installments that just make me want more. Clarissa Carlyle starts out her series with a bang! Jemma Larson, blog writer, supports her younger brother after the untimely death of her parents. When given the opportunity to interview celebrity heartthrob, Daniel Starke, things should begin to look up for her. But when a rival blogger takes her on, things get messy. Will she be able to keep her reputation and her brother? What about the smoldering relationship with Daniel? Who will win the battle of the blogs? Carlyle writes a smart, yet steamy story about a young girl trying to get by. Jemma is a fantastic character. She is strong and determined, and puts family first. Daniel is the hero that is easy to fall for. He isn't your stereotypical celebrity which is refreshing. I can't wait to see what she has in store for these characters in the next installment!

Hannah Carmona's fresh narration brings it all to life with a great pace, passion and determination. It's my first narration by her and I enjoyed her voices. Looking forward to see what she has in store for us next!

Loving this series soooooo good

OMG I am loving this series. So I know that this story continues in other books, but let's get real here for a minute. This book is good I mean its gooood. Daniel is a hot hottie with a serious dislike for pretend women. Jemma is just trying to live and care for both her brother and herself. Things happen, and stories intertwine with explosive results. so if this sounds like your kind of book. Then get your copy now and plan on a reading streak. I did receive this book for free in exchange for a honest review. Happy reading!

Jealousy ...

I was a sucked into the story. The more I read, the crazier it became. Great writing . I had to calm myself down a time or two. LIES can destroy & mislead and hurt other's indirectly involved.
On to Book2 now!

Entertaining

Jemma is an entertainment blogger. It's her one and only job to support her and her little brother. She has a chance to boost her blog by interviewing realty tv star Daniel Stark. Add in Daniel's crazy ex lover, another blogger trying to sabotage her reputation and a hot rocker who is interested in Jemma. Daniel is stuck in the middle of all this chaos. What will happen to Jemma? This series was hot, steamy to listen to. I enjoyed all 5 books.
Hannah Carmona narration was very good. She is a new narrator for me. She is a pleasure to listen to. She does an amazing job portraying the characters, giving each their own voice and personality. I was gifted the audio and offered my honest review

Awesome begining to the series

This audiobook is excellent. The story of a plain Jane and a gorgeous star was exciting. The author writes a great story of the excitement of a new relationship. Jemma has struggles as a sister taking care of her little brother in New York City and trying to make a living by blogging and meeting a reality star to help her business. And, of course, it backfires. The narrator does an excellent job with the characters and their personalities.

Quick, cute story

Jemma is struggling to provide for herself and her little brother bit she is managing to get by with her blog. Lately, however, she’s noticed a decline in followers and begins to look for ways to grow. This means moving into the video-blog arena and for that she needs a huge attraction! Enter reality TV star Daniel Starke...who needs a reputation makeover. Daniel agrees to an interview with Jemma hoping that this will help. Things go sideways when an up-and-coming vlogger starts a smear campaign against Jemma. This may jeopardize Jemma’s custody of her brother! What will happen next? Yes, this is a cliffhanger.

Once you start, you have to listen to the series!

Warning:This is a review for the entire series.
Let me say that I'm glad I didn't have to wait for each of the 5 books, because waiting would have driven me mad! You start the first book and then you have to just listen to the entire set just to see how things go between all the characters. Ms. Carlyle does a very good job of getting you hooked on a character, so I'm going to have to find more of her novels and see if the hype I've just created for her matches up...

Jemma has a lot on her

Wow Jemma has a lot on her more than most for sure. She is just trying to make enough to keep her little family afloat. Then she finds herself in a world she has no idea how to handle it all.
