Book Review | Stars In Their Eyes by Lauren Blakely


WARNING: The hero in this book is not an asshole. He is hot, charming, smart, funny, ripped, gorgeous, respectful and completely panty-melting. Please proceed.

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 the start of the sexy, swoony and scandalous new adult series Wrapped Up in Love, which is a spin-off of the NYT and USA Today Bestselling Caught Up in Love series. You don't need to have read Caught Up in Love to follow this new series, but you'll likely enjoy those books!**

my review

He’s British, and he can speak other languages too (a guy after my own heart), William Harrigan wants one thing – to stay in LA after he graduates and his student visa expires. He tries his best in finding a job that would be willing to convert his visa into working. When a job paired him with jess, he thought he’d scored his best shot fulfilling his American Dream. But this girl has walls built around her heart, winning her trust might need a little more effort, especially since he has some secrets of his own.

Jess Leighton’s job of being a celebrity photographer would be her gateway to Medical School. Celebrity pictures has their own price tags, and celebrity wedding is just somewhere up there, enough to pay for her grad school. But the security is way too tight, and the only way to go inside was through her rival, HOT BRITISH GUY, William Harrigan. She didn’t trust him, but he was the only person who can let her in.   

But the sparks between them was there since the first time they bumped into each other. Resisting it would just be futile. As the plans were made to sneak in the ceremony, the romance grows & sizzles, so as blackmail, chasing cheating directors, catching it on act, making fake IDs and all the mystery behind it all.

The version I was asked to review was the one with the A Starstruck Kiss on it, and just like any other Lauren Blakely book, Stars In Their Eyes is a great read. This is one of those books that you’d swoon for and you can’t definitely put it down. It’s a mix of cute, hot, and sweet. It’s the perfect combination of romance and dizzying mystery – you’d never really know what in the world is happening right after it slaps you in the face, and even then, your jaws would remain on the floor. I love it. I love it. I love it. I would recommend it over and over again to friends who love romance, mysteries, and all those stars-related mishaps.
