What they say
A sexy and swoony new adult romance…
Celebrity photographer and college senior Jess Leighton desperately needs to crash the wedding of the year. Snapping just one pic of the A-list Hollywood couple tying the knot will pay her way through grad school. But with security tighter than the bride-to-be’s corset, she’ll need more than her camera and smarts, she’ll need help from her biggest rival–hot, British, motorcycle-riding William Harrigan, whose sexy accent can melt the panties off any woman. He’s the last person Jess should trust, but he’s her only ticket in.
William Harrigan wants one thing – to stay in L.A. past college graduation. With a student visa set to expire, the clock is ticking. When he lands a gig that pairs him with the beautiful blond spitfire Jess, he’s scored his best shot at living out the American dream. Winning her trust would be a whole lot easier, however, if he didn’t have ulterior motives…
But there’s no faking the intense attraction between them. Try as they might to resist each other, soon sparks are flying, as they devise a plan to sneak into the ceremony. But when Jess’ new celebrity client raises the stakes, she starts to smell blackmail, and soon she and Will are chasing down cheating directors, staking out clandestine trysts, and making fake IDs, all while sneaking scene-stealing kisses and hot nights together.
The audience loves a happy ending, but in a town where everyone’s acting and no one’s playing by the rules, can Jess and William find their own ever after in time?
**STARS IN THEIR EYES is a spin-off of the New York Times & USA Today Bestselling CAUGHT UP IN LOVE series. It is the start of the new adult series WRAPPED UP IN LOVE.
What I say
I am a very lucky lady as I had the pleasure of reading this book absolutely ages ago. Way back as far as May. Like I said, very lucky.
I’ve gotta say that this book was exactly what I needed at the time. We all get stuck in a reading funk every now and again. I love the books that are pure hot and steamy, lots of angst and loots of sex. Sometimes though you just want a change of pace and thats exactly what Lauren Blakley gave me. Now and again you want to sit down, snuggle up and get stuck into a good romance novel.
Now as I said this was a change of pace but don’t worry there is still an element of hotness in it. Matthew and Jess are so much fun. In saying that though they don’t come without their drama. I mean really, whats a good book without a bit of drama. The drama is Stars in Their Eyes will intrigue you, have you guessing and thinking up all sorts of scenarios. Young love, or maybe just lust? Either way, the flirting between Jess and the delectable Will Harrington will warm your heart and melt your insides.
Stars in Their Eyes is set in Hollywood so its full of glitz and glam. I had so much fun trying to work out who the celebrities in the book were modeled on in real life. Some are so obvious that I may or may not have spat out a mouthful of coffee while reading!
Watch out for lots of crossover in the Blakely Universe. I absolutely love this is Lauren’s books!
This is a book to read for the pure enjoyment of reading. Fun, flirty, hot, sexy and intriguing. What the hell more could you want?
