Posted July 27, 2017 in blog tour, Release Blitz / 0 Comments

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book I received for free in exchange for my open and honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
This book is unsuitable for people under 18 years of age.

Star Struck, a sexy, standalone from New York Times Bestseller Laurelin Paige is live!

She uses her fame as a wall around her heart, and only he can tear it down.

Seth Rafferty knows Heather Wainwright’s type.

Demanding. Check.

Self-important. Check.

Leggy and blonde. Yeah, he knows the drill.

He’s been a Hollywood production designer far too long to have patience for A-listers with a superior attitude. Beautiful women with a chip on their shoulder are a dime a dozen.

Which is why his obsession with Heather makes no sense. Nothing about her is attractive.

Except the vulnerability under the sass. The honesty under the attitude.

So when wrap-party flirting gets carried away, Seth doesn’t stop it from turning into a sizzling night of passion. Too late, he realizes, one night isn’t going to get her out of his system.

On to plan B: uncover the real woman under the diva.

Soon Heather will find out that Seth isn’t just a simple carpenter she can use and lose without consequences. He’ll play the part of the builder, but it’s her walls he intends to break down.

Review

Star Struck by Laurelin Paige is a standalone contemporary romance where Ms. Paige gives us an enemies-to-lovers story with actress Heather Wainwright, versus “carpenter”/production designer, Seth Rafferty, in a battle of wills. Think the beginning of Overboard with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. I so pictured that when I first began reading this fun and sexy story.

Heather Wainwright is known for being a diva. With a past that she’s trying to stay far away from, she has a rule of no fraternizing with the crew. So when she meets Seth Rafferty during the preparation for a charity event she is participating in, there is an instant attraction, however, when she inadvertently assumes he’s a simple carpenter because he’ll be building the set-designs for the 24-hour plays, she starts to let her diva show and the sparks begin to fly as well as the insults. However, after a while, these two characters will break down each other’s walls and soon see there is more underneath.

I liked both characters in Star Struck and in many ways they were two sides of the same coin. They seem to fight internally with themselves as well as each other, and that let’s you learn more about them, such as Heather’s “stuck up” attitude being a defense mechanism because of the influence of her past and Seth deflecting his success for much the same reasons. Their hidden depths are what each is unknowingly and inexplicably drawn to, and I liked how it was not their surface personalities that attracted them the most to each other, but their buried character.

Overall, Star Struck by Laurelin Paige was a hot and sexy read that was a lot of fun and had characters which you’ll like because of their flaws, not in spite of them. I happily recommend.

 

About Laurelin Paige

USA Today and New York Times Bestselling Author Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She's also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn't do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio. She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.
