Just when it seems like all her dreams are coming true, everything comes crashing down when a photo of Andrew with another girl appears online. He swears nothing happened, but Cecily is crushed.

Book One:
Can Dreams Come True? (The Cecily Taylor Series #1)

Summary:

Cecily has always had a huge crush on singer Andrew Holiday and she wants to be an actress, so she tags along when her friend auditions for his new video. However, the director isn’t looking for an actress, but rather the girl next door—and so is Andrew. Cecily gets a part in the video and all of Andrew’s attention on the set. Her friend begins to see red and Cecily’s boyfriend is seeing green—as in major jealousy. A misunderstanding leaves Cecily and her boyfriend on the outs and Andrew hopes to pick up the pieces as he’s looking for someone more stable in his life than the models he’s dated. Soon Cecily begins to realize Andrew understands her more than her small-town boyfriend—but can her perfect love match really be her favorite rock star?

Excerpt:
“They were talking about how they’re using unknown
models right now and I mentioned how awesome you were in the video and they
agreed. We started talking and they wondered if you’d want to come to New York
and do a shoot for the magazine. What do you think?” he asked.
I almost fell off my bed. Me? Model? I wasn’t pretty
enough for that and everyone would write in to let them know that just like
they all felt the need to voice that opinion in the online video comments.
“Wow, it’s…wow.”
“I know, right? And I’m here for a few weeks recording
so we could see each other. My manager said he’d talk to your parents and work
out the details. You’d be working just to get exposure, so the contract would
be about rights and not money—is that cool? It’s a great way to get your name
out there and stuff for your book.”
 “My book?”
“Your portfolio. You know, the photos people look at
to decide whether or not they want to hire you for modeling jobs.”
Was I going to be modeling enough that I needed a
book? Did this magazine actually want me? It sounded too good to be true—going
to New York to model and be in a magazine while visiting my pop star boyfriend.
Was this my life?
“I don’t know if my parents will go for it,” I said.
“Let my manager talk to them and see what magic he can
work. He wants to help this magazine out, too. You want to do it though,
right?”
Part of me did—the part of me that wanted a big life
and to be famous and adored. The reality side of me was an anxious mess just
thinking about flying out there though.
 “Yeah, for
sure,” I said hoping I sounded convincing.
“Great, give me your parents’ number and I’ll have my
manager give them a call.”
 I felt like I
was having an out of body experience as I recited my mom’s cell phone number to
him. 
My entire life could change in a phone call.
