Her Leading Hero
A Reel Romance #3
By Maggie Dallen
Releasing December 12th, 2017

Is she getting a second take at her Hollywood ending?

Despite her leading lady looks, Tamara Pierce has always been happiest out of the spotlight, especially since a painful breakup drove her away from her society friends. Now she's happily managing a magnificent, historic old movie house that's in danger of being torn down. It's good news when a billionaire buyer shows interest. If only the billionaire in question weren't Gregory Blanchard, who once fueled her fantasies of happily after ever.

Known for his reckless endeavors in romance and business, Gregory's determined to prove his worth with this new project. And he knows how to do it: making Tamara the public face of the Ellen Theater. She's poised, passionate-the perfect partner on his arm at fundraising events. Once he lures her into the limelight, the shy beauty gets under his skin in a way no woman has before. But will a heartbreaker like him be the one to lead her back to love?

In Her Leading Hero (A Reel Romance #3) by Maggie Dallen, Tamara Pierce has long stopped crushing on Gregory Blanchard, but when he buys the historic old movie house she manages, she finds herself being pulled back into the world she left behind after a painful breakup. And with Gregory wanting her to be the public face of Ellen Theater, she finds she can't avoid the limelight for long. Will Gregory be able to convince Tamara to take a chance on him, or will her heart be broken for a second time?

What a fantastic and very engaging read Ms. Dallen has delivered in this third book of her A Reel Romance series where although I didn't warm up to the heroine right away, I found that as this story progressed and Gregory pushed her back into the world she's tried so hard to stay away from -- the world of the riches -- I really started to like the heroine. Certainly, she shows great resilience and courage.

As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters back stories, especially that of the hero, because of the relationship between him and his father, which made me feel sorry for the hero. Yet, in saying that, I couldn't help but sympathize with the heroine's past as well. How could her family be so cruel in doing what they did? No wonder she doesn't want anything to do with the world her family are from. Furthermore, I absolutely loved the hero. He's confident; knows how to get what he wants, which is proven by how he convinces the heroine to be the face of the theatre; and I liked how determined he was to win over the heroine because they both need each other to heal from their pasts.

Overall, Ms. Dallen has delivered a really good read in this book where emotions run high; there's plenty of great chemistry between this couple; and the ending had me loving what the hero does because who doesn't want their happy ever after to be a dream come true and like a black-and-white movie. However, it was the epilogue that wrapped this story up wonderfully because of how far this couple have come in their relationship and how happy they are together, especially because of the happy surprise the heroine has. I would recommend Her Leading Hero by Maggie Dallen, if you enjoy the enemy to lovers trope or books by authors Kelly Moran, Lila Monroe, Roxanne St. Claire and Emily March.
