I never forgot her. Not for one minute. Not from the last time I saw her, at seventeen, to today. I measured all women against her and all women came up short.
But being with her was unfeasible in high school, and it's taboo now.
I see her sometimes, but I've never spoken to her. She runs, or I run. We're in the same town, on the same block, in the same building, and the gulf between us is just too wide to cross.
He was my high school crush, back when I lived in a world that didn't want me. He was the perfect boy, and I was the outcast kid from the other side of town. And when he held my hand I thought I could fit in, just a little. I thought I could be his and he could be mine. Then he left, and my life fell apart.
Now we are the king and queen of opposite sides of Hollywood. And we haven't spoken a word to each other.
"A confident, badass heroine and a swoon worthy, good guy find each other in CD Reiss’s latest contemporary romance. It’s a Hollywood affair with more colors of reality than fairytale, depicting an honest and endearing paparazzi meets movie star relationship that captures all the swoon and flutters of the best love stories. With strikingly beautiful prose and the contrasting gritty, vivid Los Angeles setting, SHUTTERGIRL is Reiss’s finest work yet." —Laurelin Paige, author of the bestselling Fixed Trilogy
"Engaging, sexy, and noteworthy, SHUTTERGIRL is just another example of why CD Reiss is one of my go to authors. Her clean writing style, flawed but relatable characters, and well-crafted story make this book one that’s hard to put down even after you read the last page." —Kristy Bromberg, bestselling author of the Driven Trilogy
"I went into SHUTTERGIRL not knowing what magic CD Reiss had created. Instantly, I was swept away with perfect prose, incredible imagery, and a character connection I loved. In my mind, it was a perfect modern day fairy-tale where the loved and hated try to bridge the chasm of society's unwritten laws and listen to what they want, rather than what Hollywood tells them. It’s the shit. Buy it." —Pepper Winters, bestelling author of the Monsters in the Dark series
"Forbidden yet sweet. SHUTTERGIRL will make you believe that love has the power to break down all barriers. CD Reiss shows us her sweet side, but still manages to keep things sexy as hell." —Claire Conteras, author of THERE IS NO LIGHT IN DARKNESS
"Tender romance, smart writing. A total winner. Smart and romantic with characters you will root for until the end. I'm already looking forward to reading this book again. A story rich with tenderness and romance, written with the intelligence and wit that is all CD Reiss. I loved everything about SHUTTERGIRL!" —Mia Sheridan, bestselling author of the Sign of Love series
