Review: No Interest in Love by Cassie Mae

Readers of Emma Chase are sure to fall for bestselling author Cassie Mae’s All About Love series! In No Interest in Love, Hollywood’s hottest young actor hits the road to chase his big break—and discovers a leading lady where he least expected.
When Jace Carver snags a minor part in his buddy’s zombie flick, he suddenly starts getting noticed all over the place. Even Hollywood megastar Carletta Ocean—known for her extensive “research” with her male co-stars—wants Jace for her new rom-com. The role could be a game-changer . . . if Jace nails the audition.

As Jace’s agent, Shaylene Kwak is all business, and isn’t about to let her favorite client blow this opportunity. Since their college years, Shay has been immune to Jace’s charm and rock-hard body. But long hours in close company have a way of wearing down even the best defenses, and when their platonic teasing turns into serious flirting, Jace and Shay are no longer able to resist what’s been right in front of them the entire time.

Shay knows Jace’s love-’em-and-leave-’em history with women. She’s not about to be just another notch in his belt. And it’s true, Jace has never wanted more than a one-night stand—until now. But at the end of the line, he’s got a choice: sleep with Carletta and seal the deal, or risk his career for a shot at true love with Shay.

Kristine's Thoughts:

** I received an advanced readers copy from Loveswept via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!**

No Interest in Love is the second book in the All About Love series but can be read as a stand alone. The books are about completely different characters. I did have the opportunity to read Doing it for Love (book #1) first and loved it so I was really excited to dive into this one. I remember the first book being quite humorous so I was hoping to find more of the same in this one.

This book is basically about Jace and Shay's misadventures while trying to get Jace to a really important casting call. It is told from Jace's perspective in which he narrates like his life is a movie script. Shay is Miss Unlikely and Carletta (the leading lady in the movie) is Miss Sure Thing. You can tell where Jace's head is at just by those names alone. He is a playboy who isn't interested in relationships. He wants his no strings attached fun and nothing more. Needless to say, what he thinks he wants and what he finds himself wanting turn out to be completely different which complicates his life tremendously.

There is definitely some humour in this book. I wouldn't say that it was as funny as the first book but it definitely had its moments. The missteps the two had from planes, trains and automobiles were comical but I was hoping for a little more humour between Jace and Shay. I'd say that their interactions leaned a little bit more to the cute side, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

At first I wasn't sure that I liked Jace. He was cocky and had a one track mind. As I turned the pages I realised that he wasn't as bad as I had originally thought. He wished he was the type of guy that I don't like but in reality wasn't anywhere close. Shay, on the other hand, I loved from the beginning. She had the no nonsense, get things done attitude all wrapped up in a tiny little package. I could relate to her.

I enjoyed the book but I did find it a little too predictable. There were really no surprises or twists to be had. I also thought that the part that was narrated by Shay at the end was unnecessary to the story. It should have ended without that addition. Other than that it was an enjoyable and easy way to pass the time.

About the Author

She likes writing about nerds, geeks, the awkward, the fluffy, the short, the shy, the loud, the fun.

Since publishing her bestselling debut, Reasons I Fell for the Funny Fat Friend, she has published and sold books to Random House, Swoon Romance, and Spencer Hill Press. She has a favorite of all her babies, but no, she won’t tell you what it is. (Mainly because it changes depending on the day.)

Along with writing, Cassie likes to binge watch Teen Wolf and The Big Bang Theory. She can quote Harry Potter lines quick as a whip. And she likes kissing her hubby, but only if his facial hair is trimmed. She also likes cheesecake to a very obsessive degree.
