Shot Through The Heart by Matt Cain
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Those interested in the film industry in Hollywood will love this tale of media hype, manipulation and lies. It is so good for a film’s publicity if the leading lady falls for the leading man and Mia Sinclair has had Billy Spencer as her leading man for her last two films – only she loves another who is jealous of Billy and Billy is gay … but hush, hush, the audiences must not know!

Synopsis

Shot Through The Heart by Matt Cain

Mia Sinclair is the First Lady of Love, a beautiful film goddess known across the globe for her romantic roles. But in reality life does not imitate art and love is not as easily found in the real world as it is in the movies. Leo Henderson is the Brit living in L.A, loving the lifestyle and photographing the stars - mostly when they least want to be photographed. When Mia meets Leo, the sparks fly. But is dating a paparazzi the biggest mistake of her life? And how will she cope when Leo becomes jealous of her friendship with co-star Billy Spencer, the hottest actor in town but a man hiding a secret he's worried could destroy his career? Shot through the Heart is Matt Cain's debut novel, a Hollywood tale of romance, heartbreak and the lengths some will go to maintain that unblemished movie star image.
