Some relationships go far beyond the Hollywood backdrop.
 
Fake romantic relationships have always been a thread woven into the fabric of Hollywood. In the old days, studios played the matchmaking game simply to promote their movies. Today the game remains the same, only now the stakes are higher and the players ever changing.
 

The two of us knew what rock bottom looked like and we needed a way out of the rubble before it destroyed our careers and our reputations.
 
From multiple staged paparazzi appearances and charity polo matches in the Hamptons to romps in the Caribbean and even being seen together at a high-profile celebrity wedding, the plan was simple—an agreement that would benefit all involved.
 
But, falling in love was never part of the plan.
 
And for two famous friends, one summer in the Hamptons could change everything.

Healed by You is the second book in the Harbor Series, and yes, before you ask, can be read as a standalone, but after reading HBY, you should definitely pick up Bound to You and all the other books by this amazing author.

For those of you who are a Christy Pastore fangirl like myself, you already met Grady James. In HBY, he has grown up a lot, he’s finally coming into his own and having his own leading parts and still doing the modeling gig. He’s married and settled and thought all was well at Casa James, when he walks in on his wife doing a very interesting yoga pose with her instructor, ahem, doggystyle anyone? Ah Hollywood, home of the cheaters. After licking his chops and getting divorced, Grady goes back to where he can just be himself and be close to his friends, back to the harbor at the Hamptons.

Since Grady still needs to work, he finds himself at a modeling gig where he meets his Special Lady. It is someone he has known from modeling. No, I’m not giving you her name especially if you have read the previous books. Let it be a surprise. Let’s just say, she too is coming off a two year relationship, when her douche canoe boyfriend decides to break off so he can concentrate on his athleticism. What I adored most about this Special Lady is that, she grieved for her ex, and kept it moving. She is busy concentrating on making a go of her business plan, but when her BFF asked her to stand in with Grady during a photoshoot, besides the camera capturing the chemistry between these two, sparks were flying all over the place.

They both decide to take things slow up until the paparazzi gets wind of their outings and Grady devices this great plan and convinces his Special Lady to run with it and make tabloid talk. Simple, right? It was until, the crazies commenting and making up more stories, c’est la vie. Can I take a minute and applause Special Lady in getting what she wants in the bedroom? Homegirl can dirty talk like a boss and Grady, he sure as hell did not hold back in that department either.

Both main characters were strong together, they had very funny moments, the Friends references were the best. I was waiting for the other shoe to drop and when it did, I was a bit sad, but through it all, the author made me believe in love. How love is so powerful, you will revisit your original stance on failed marriages.

I love how Ms. Pastore made me want go visit the Hamptons and hangout at the harbor. The descriptions were so lush that I felt I was there with Grady, his Special Lady and his awesome group of friends. We should all have friends like Ronan, Holliday, Ella and Alex.

On release day, come take a fictional visit to the Hamptons and read Healed by You and escape in the romance, love and friendship.
