Hello, Hollywood!...Review

About the book:
Athena Pappas is the head writer on one of the most popular sitcoms in television history. But when Vegas comedian Stephen Cosse is brought in to beef up the show's suddenly sagging ratings, she starts to worry about her job. Sparks fly as the competition--and attraction--between the two writers heats up. Athena has never had a problem scripting the romances of her characters. So why is her own love life so hard to script?

With humor and a Hollywood-insider viewpoint,
Hello, Hollywood! delivers lots of laughs as the characters discover that not being in control of the plot of their lives might just be the best thing that ever happened to them.

Athena may be the head writer of a popular television show and her best friend a famous actress, but she still lives at home with her loud, loving Greek family and sleeps on Strawberry Shortcake sheets.  When a new writer is brought in to help improve the show's ratings, Athena feels threatened.  When she finds herself falling for Stephen, the creativity she is able to bring to her writing fails her and she uncertain of her future.

Second in the Backstage Pass series, this is just another fun book from Janice Thompson.  All your favorite characters from Stars Collide return and we get to meet Athena's loud, large and very loving Greek family.  Janice not only gives us an entertaining story, she gives us a sweet story as well.  When Stephen comes to LA, he brings with him a young daughter in need of love and attention.  As Stephen and  Athena's relationship grows, so does the relationship Brooke has with the Pappas family.  The result is a tender look at what being part of a family really means.
