She Went All The Way by Meg Cabot

GoodReads Summary: Success hasn't spoiled screenwriter Lou Calabrese -- it's just given her a taste for luxury. And it's put her in some bizarre situations -- like in a helicopter en route to the wilds of Alaska, sharing too-close quarters with the last man she wants to be with: Jack Townsend! Once a sexy nobody whom Lou helped make a somebody, Jack's just been dumped by a high-profile Hollywood airhead -- who's eloped with Lou's longtime love! So what else could go wrong? Well...

Their pilot could try to shoot the most adored man in America. They could crash land in the icy, mountainous middle of nowhere. And at the worst possible moment, when survival should be their only consideration, Jack could start wondering if maybe he wasn't a wee bit too hasty for not giving this sexy screenwriter a second look -- while Lou could start noticing how superstar Jack is kind of hot after all ...

 Thoughts:

If you're in the mood for a romantic comedy, with a love/hate relationship and sexy times I recommend reading She Went All the Way!
I immediately took a liking to Lou. I could really relate to her in that she's passionate about reading and TV "She had never been a very outdoorsy girl. As a kid, she'd spent most her time curled up with a book. Or in front of the TV." Two of my favourite things to do!
The story is written in diary format, and is told from both Jack and Lou's perspective. Cabot's witty writing style and constant popular culture references kept me entertained throughout the novel.
The dialogue between the Lou and Jack was hilarious, their constant bickering had me literally laughing out loud. I liked how as the story progressed the relationship between Lou and Jack slowly developed. And when they finally decided to acknowledge the attraction between them, well, let's just say there were some steamy moments! 
By the end of the book I was left with a big smile on my face. She Went all the Way is fun, light read with an awesome protagonist, a swoon worthy male mc and some explosive Hollywood shenanigans!
In a nutshell, SWATW is the perfect blend of romance, action, comedy, drama and suspense!

      5. Oh, I love this book. :) It's different from Cabot's previous works, but so similar at the same time. The cover is cute, too.

      6. I remember this one being a lot of fun; glad you enjoyed it! I haven't read it since high school, but maybe I'll re-read Meg's adult books at some point since I do own most of them. =)
