Review & Giveaway: Star Struck by Laurelin Paige

Title: Star Struck
Series: Lights, Camera Companion
Author: Laurelin Paige
Publisher: Samhain
Publication Date: June 17, 2014
Summary: Onto every diva’s backside, a little wood must fall.

Hollywood actress Heather Wainwright was looking forward to a long, relaxing break before starting her next shoot. Except her assistant volunteered her for L.A.’s annual 24 Hour Plays.

Nervous about doing a good job for such a worthy charity, Heather falls back on “diva” mode, a defense mechanism that always carries her through. Until she encounters something that really gets on her nerves—a lowly carpenter whose Norse god eyes pierce right through her.

Highly sought-after production designer Seth Rafferty has little patience for A-listers with superior attitudes, which is why his attraction to Heather is absurd. Yet, sensing vulnerability beneath her screen-queen act, he lets her assumptions play out.

After the wrap party, Heather awakens with little memory of the night before—except that Seth gave her the best orgasm of her life, then disappeared. When he shows up on the set of her next movie, she winds up to give him a piece of her mind…and Seth shows her just how stinging hot “chemistry” can get.

Warning: Contains an outwardly snobby actress with a good heart, a delicious carpenter with a power drill, some much-deserved spanking, and an appropriately consensual—if tipsy—orgasm, as well as sex at an inappropriate time of the month.

What I thought about Star Struck

Cute tale about a diva meeting her match. Heather is instantly attracted to Seth, that is until she finds out he's a carpenter. Seth feels something for Heather, too, but backs off a bit when he finds out she looks down at him because she thinks he's a carpenter. He's not really a carpenter and so begins the lie.

As with all good drama, that lie comes back to bite him, and unfortunately both Seth and Heather have lost their hearts to each other by this point. There's a nice journey for both of these characters, especially as they learn more about each other.

There's some definite heat between Seth and Heather, some nice banter, and a pregnancy scare with a little bit of twist that keeps the first part of the book moving. Even though I though there were a few slow spots, I did read this in a day.

I like this series. It's a bit different with the movie star angle and I find it fun. Nice summer beach read.
