|Film student Ella Summers can’t believe her luck when she is selected to work on the set of the most anticipated film release of the year—STARSHINE. For the next four weeks, she’ll be in the studio with heart-throb and leading man Alex Denton, and his co-star—and recent ex—the stunning Amy Strickland.
But her first day on set has her questioning the true character of the enigmatic and sexy Alex. The charming celebrity she’s adored on screen disappears before her very eyes—if indeed he ever really existed.
Off-camera arguments between Alex and Amy become difficult to ignore, and when Ella uncovers layers of deceit and closely guarded secrets between them, she becomes involved in a battle that has far-reaching implications.
With the paparazzi hounding her every move for the most sensational story they can get, Ella becomes deeply embroiled in Alex’s life. Can she break down his seemingly impenetrable walls, or will he remain the arrogant ass she first met?
STARSHINE is set in London, England. Beware though—Alex Denton has a crude mouth, and an equally wicked smile.
|You see the thing is – I am a pretty big fan of an english actor that gained fame by being the lead in a Film series. And I repeat I am a fan of the actor not the Film. I am still going to his premiers now years after these films have been released.
I am not a “StarEyed” fan or anything I just respect that actor and truly like him. And I absolutely adore books that have a blurb like this … If I might mention “Eversea” in this relation. I also read a bunch of fanfictions sure why not … Hey I mean where do people think #50 shades came from.
(I know you can sense the but coming and I won’t keep you waiting)
To me (and maybe that is really my imagination) this book feels exactly like a fanfiction mixture out of the life of this actor and his first big movie) As I said it might be just me but because I know his professional work and that series quite well – I thought I was already starting to recognize lines of the movie in it … “stay very still” when getting a first kiss ? – Tugging a baseball cap and placing her hairs behind her ears ?(those are just two amongst a dozend or so) – and lets not even start with those movie titles that were used…. so yeah – as I said might be just me …
– Again that would be no big issue – actually it would be pretty funny. IF … yeah IF the characters would not appear like children… and I am so sorry for thinking that but they acted and behaved like teenagers and not only was their behavior childish no – they were also changing their decisions faster than english weather. –
I love a good fairytale like the next girl – and parts of this book appealed to me but in total even if I neglect everything that was unbelivable – like her being on that set without actually doing anything. In the end it was the childlike behavior of the leads that killed this book – and I am so sorry about that – it could have been a great fairytale …
