Hollywood It Girl, Francesca Leon, has just landed the biggest role of her career…one that could clinch an Oscar nomination and open doors. If she’s going to move her career to the next level and work with top directors, she has to nail this part — and keep her sexy, but unreliable leading man from screwing everything up.
Bad boy Calder Fox is the son of Hollywood royalty and fresh out of rehab after his best friend’s death sent him on a downward spiral of drugs and alcohol. While his fans still love him and the paparazzi stalk him, he’s never taken life, or anything about his career, seriously. He may be charming and drop-dead gorgeous, but if he doesn’t stay sober, he could ruin Frankie’s future and expose her long-hidden family secret to the voracious media.
Behind the scenes
Things heat up during filming and have the potential to become hotter, deeper, and much more real. But can Frankie trust Calder with her secret? Or is he doomed to sabotage his own happiness yet again?
Collateral Damage is part of a series but each book can be read as a standalone. This book tells the beautiful story of Francesca Leon and Calder Fox.
Francesca “Frankie” Leon is a hard working actress who likes controlling every aspect of her life and keeping it private. She is focused on creating a perfect image of herself and making it to the top.
"The limelight was not an easy place to be, even when you were an up-and-coming media darling like myself."
Calder Fox, son of a well known Hollywood couple, was born into wealth. He struggles everyday with his personal demons and feels guilty for the tragic accident that caused his best friend's death.
"If someone like Frankie thought I was worth saving...maybe I really was."
Frankie and Calder worked together in their teens and years later their paths are crossed again. Their relationship started completely professional, but their chemistry was too strong to ignore and later on, they started offering each other support and learning from one another. But where will this head them? Mixing business and pleasure could be dangerous...
“I beamed with pride at the man who had started out as an annoyance, turned out to be an anomaly, and ended up becoming my entire life.”
