But her icy resolution melts when she sees an incredibly hot Marine shopping for toys.A man in uniform with a hot bod and a heart of gold? Major Ben Hawthorne has his career to think about, but when it comes to Ainsley, he’s willing to break his own rules, at least for one night—provided they can get this insanely wicked attraction out of their systems. Now Ainsley’s checking her list twice…before she falls for a Marine.She does film reviews with Hawkeye in the Morning on 96.3 KSCS, and is a former President of the Television Critics Association. When she shows up to convince Austin Reede to sell, she has no intention of hiding her identity. When he meets Sam, he has no idea she’s the one to blame, he just knows the attraction between them is one he hasn’t felt in years. Maybe it’s because she is foreign, but something feels very right about swishing through the revolving doors of the Mandarin Oriental in Knightsbridge on a rain-lashed Saturday night on the promise of a good time with the greatest film star to emerge from southern Europe since Sophia Loren.Obviously, Sophia is a “dear friend” of la Cruz, but, let’s face it, who isn’t at this point?
), industry friends tell me that Cruz is adored by everyone, from big execs to her female colleagues and their husbands.
