Unrequited love is hell on earth
Personal assistant Wendy Davila is in love with her boss, Halden Armstrong, megastar of the Apollo superhero film franchise. But she can’t compete with the succession of stick-thin blond beauties he’s caught and released. Or can she? When Halden asks Wendy to accompany him on a fishing trip to Muskoka, it’s her chance to remake her dark-haired, curvy Latina self into his ideal woman and cast her hook for Halden.
Can he trust her?
Halden has been burned by love. The last thing he wants is a woman like his ex who faked it until she landed him. Wendy is special, and the private trip is an opportunity to explore his feelings for her. However, the Greek god has an Achilles’ heel. Can he trust Wendy with a secret that could ruin his career? And will she still care for him when she learns the truth?
When Apollo falls off his pedestal, Wendy must decide if the man she adores is a keeper.
Fun but different at the same time
Halden is a movie star and Wendy is his PA but things change when they go away together to a remote fishing lodge
I liked Wendy, she knows what she wants and will follow that goal but is also cautious and almost nervous at times. She is fun and very good at her job but is not so outdoorsy which is kind of needed on their trip and seeing her navigate her away though made me more invested in her as a character
Halden is good at what he does but because he is famous he loves to get off the grid sometimes. He has a secret that could possibly destroy his career but at the same time he does his best to work past that and be the best person he can be. I will admit that at times I hated Halden, he would do something to upset Wendy and it felt so awful but he does realise what he has done and does start to learn from things although it does take time. As a result however my view of him was quite up and down and it was harder for me to bond to him as a character
I loved the wilderness and the descriptions of the locations as well as the excitement of catching fish and the relaxation that fishing can bring people and this made me feel immersed in the location and helped it feel more authentic to me
Although at times I wasn’t sure about Wendy and Haldens relationship I did enjoy their story and seeing how they develop as characters throughout into the people that they could be
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a story of love and romance in a fabulous setting but with some twists that could catch you by surprise

Growing up, Madelle enjoyed nineteen summers at her grandparents’ cottage on Georgian Bay in the beautiful District of Muskoka, Ontario, Canada, named by National Geographic Traveler magazine as one of their top 20 Best of the World Must-see Places.
Muskoka is Canada’s summer playground for many wealthy families and Hollywood celebrities. The Hollywood in Muskoka series updates the upstairs/downstairs trope: successful people in the film industry on vacation fall for service providers.
Madelle lives in Ottawa, Canada’s capital, with her husband and their labradoodle Raven. She dreams of owning a waterfront cottage. Or at least a pool.
