The Seat Filler

This celebrity romance by Sariah Wilson was pretty fun. Some parts seemed implausible to me (like the misunderstanding that tears them apart at one point), but the author did a good job at the end making you semi-believe it could happen. It wasn’t my favorite Sariah Wilson book, but I still enjoyed it a lot. She always does a great job at immersing you into the Hollywood lifestyle.

Juliet Nolan, our heroine in this one, is helping out her best friend by being a seat-filler for a Hollywood award’s night (so the venue looks at full capacity on camera). She ends up being assigned to sit next to Noah Douglas, the heartthrob bigtime actor that she’s been in love with since junior high. But when he talks down to her, thinking she’s a stalker, she tells him she’s never heard of him before and tries to knock his ego down a peg or two. The two get further tangled up later when she ends up at his house to wash his dog (she’s a dog groomer).

It’s a silly story line (yet one many people probably dream about), but this author makes it work. That’s one reason I like her books. She writes fun characters and has crazy celebrity stories, and does a decent job making you journey into the lifestyle of the rich and famous vicariously. If you want a light, fun read to take your mind off your troubles, this is a great book to do that. I definitely recommend it.

Happy reading,

Simply Starstruck

simplyI’ve just recently found this author – Aspen Hadley – and I have really enjoyed her books so far. I already reviewed another book by her–Blind Dates, Bridesmaids, and Other Disasters. Today’s review is on a second one by her. Simply Starstruck.

This super cute celebrity romance was thoroughly enjoyable. The heroine is determined NOT to fall for Mr. Gorgeous Heartthrob, who has moved in next door to her. She has an eight-year-old son and is content with her life. Men can only complicate it and cause her more grief and loss. Her heart can’t deal with that again.

But Kate keeps running into Jess Sullivan, and not ever at her best moments. He’s seen her in stained sweats and with messy hair. He’s seen her with mud on her face, for goodness sake. He’s seen her temper at high flare and he’s seen her break down and lose it. No way would he ever want a nutcase like her, who’s slightly overweight when he has thin, stunning models always by his side. Continue reading

#Awestruck

newjan4January was filled with a bunch of GREAT new releases that have kept my kindle full, and my heart happy. Today, I’ll start off by reviewing #Awestruck by Sariah Wilson. If you haven’t read one of her books yet, you’re missing out. Here’s the skinny on her newest hit:

TEASER

Ambitious intern Ashton Bailey is about to get closer to her dream of being a sports announcer. All she has to do is prove that too-perfect-to-be-true NFL quarterback Evan Dawson isn’t quite as wholesome as his contract requires. It’s also the perfect opportunity to get delicious payback on the boy who broke her teenage heart. At least that’s her plan. But she forgot just how easy it is to crush on the irresistible charmer. #OhNoNotAgain. Continue reading
