My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Since I gravitate towards the first-person point-of-view (POV) format, it takes much more for the third-person POV format to get inside my head…to wow me. The detail must paint such a vivid picture and dialogue must be so abundant to where I'm so lost in the storyline that I forget what voice the story is told in and just become one with the words. Laurelin Paige wrote such a COMPELLING and COMBUSTIBLE story that I was lost in her words, embedded so deeply in Star Struck that I didn't want to let go.
Readers first met the heroine, Heather Wainright, in Take Two, the novel in the series that precedes this story. Heather was painted as a pampered princess, a demanding diva, and a self-centered snob. This Hollywood princess is beauty with brains, and much more than what she's been made to be. I loved watching this heroine morph from jilted caterpillar to formidable butterfly wearing new wings of compassion.
The hero, Seth Rafferty, is ALL ALPHA!!! He is so dominant and delicious!!! Mr. thigh-clenching-causing carpenter was my addiction!!! Seth is hot and humble, a lethal combination.
The banter between the hero and heroine is the best mix of SASS and STEAM!!!
"If you needed a drill, princess, all you had to do was ask."
"Don't call me that."
"Do you need a screw as well?"
Seth paired with Hollywood princess, Heather, makes for an arousing and rousing RUSH!!! This couple has chemistry in spades!!!
"It's because you act like a princess that I think you need to be a little bit manhandled."
The tension rolls off the pages, as the push and pull between the hero and heroine was a HEEDY and HEART-STOPPING SENSATION!!!
"I don't know what you want."
"Isn't it too bad you won't let yourself find out?"
The angst…the banter…the burn…I FELT IT ALL. PURE NEED…so INTENSE and INTOXICATING!!! Star Struck is smoldering hot with a huge amount of heart. I just didn't expect this story with sass and smolder to be so much more. The MORE being a message with both power and passion: RISE ABOVE. So simple but so soulful.
"I could see what you wanted to be."
"What was that?"
I LOVED this Hollywood glam meets carpenter gruff romance! With its off-the-charts character development and combative chemistry, this love story is Emmy-worthy. I was UTTERLY SPELLBOUND with Laurelin Paige's words again!!! Star Struck struck my soul, sending it soaring! I was rendered STAR STRUCK!!! ❤️

She uses her fame as a wall around her heart, and only he can tear it down.
Seth Rafferty knows Heather Wainwright’s type.
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.
A MUST-CLICK ROMANCE!!!
