Booklist Review: "The writing duo Christina Lauren has written another entertaining and moving romance, this time crafting a second-chance story about a couple whose intense, youthful holiday fling ends in heartbreak. When they meet in London, the attraction between Tate Jones, an aspiring actress and the incognito daughter of Hollywood's most famous leading man, and Sam Brandis, a young farmer trying to become a writer, is immediate and all-consuming. Each vacationing with a grandparent, they steal away together when they can, confiding their worries that their grandparents will likely not support their desired career paths and sharing confidences about their complicated familial situations. The strong bond they form is why Tate feels such acute devastation when Sam abruptly disappears without warning, leaving her feeling betrayed on multiple levels. Fourteen years later, the realization of their career aspirations places Tate and Sam on the same movie set. They must navigate their complicated past and maintain a manageable professional relationship and at the same time determine how to deal with a connection that remains strong despite their cataclysmic separation.--Nicole Williams Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This solid but unexceptional contemporary from Lauren (The Unhoneymooners) tries to do a few too many things at once. When Tate Butler goes on a trip to London shortly after turning 18, she meets Sam Brandis and falls instantly into a whirlwind romance so intense that she finds herself telling him her biggest secret: she's Hollywood royalty, the "lost" daughter of heartthrob Ian Butler. She vanished from the public view at age eight, and everyone wants to know where she went. Sam almost immediately sells Tate's secret to the tabloids and launches her into the spotlight again. Ten years after Sam's betrayal, Tate realizes that her past isn't as far behind her as she thinks. Stepping into her first leading role on a film set in Northern California, she's introduced to the screenwriter: Sam. Despite his earlier betrayal, she still feels drawn to him and must decide whether to give him another chance. Sometimes awkward parallels are drawn between the love story of Sam and Tate, who are both white, and the interracial historical romance of the film they're working on. The pacing is imperfect, but the ending satisfies. Readers inclined toward narratives of forgiveness will appreciate this story of learning to leave the past in the past.
