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.

In Star Struck by Laurelin Paige we are taken back into the world she created in Sex Symbol. In this story, we get an enemies to lover romance set around Hollywood with entitled celebrities and those who cater to them, or don’t.

Heather Wainwright is your typical celebrity who feels entitled and looks down on most people. At least she is at first glance, but there is more under her façade not many get to see. Having worked hard to be where she is today, she lets no one see too deep. She lets no one know her insecurities or flaws. She knows who she is and how others perceive her, and she is okay with that. She wears it like an armor. Heather was not always likeable. She has her flaws and could be such a diva. But she struggles to overcome so much and we see her grow throughout the story.

Seth Rafferty may not have been completely honest when he first met Heather, but he has known woman like her before and has no time for them. Except somehow Heather gets under his skin. I loved Seth. He was such a strong and determined man and took no crap from Heather. He never sugar-coated anything and never apologized for it.

Though Heather was not very likeable at the start, as we read this story we understand her more and realize what she keeps buried. Their attraction is instant, though she initially believes he is beneath her. But Seth slowly begins to break down her walls. They share a lot of sexual tension and chemistry! Can they learn to be honest and open with each other before it’s too late?

Enjoyable friends to lovers story about two opposites who are drawn to each other even as they continue to push and pull. This was a a quick, fun and sexy read about a Hollywood diva and the man that turns her life upside down.

Star Struck is the story of Heather Wainwright, Hollywood Diva, and Seth Rafferty, the gorgeous carpenter/production designer. This book was a good mix of fun, sarcasm, wit and some hot, steamy sex!

I did enjoy this book, however, I had a really hard time with Heather. Something about her just made it a no go for me until almost halfway through the book. Heather is definitely a diva with an attitude which made it tough for me to even want to get to know her.

Now Seth, on the other hand, WOW! He was fun, sexy, humble and had a VERY dirty mouth. I loved that Seth totally put Heather in her place, on more than one occasion.

Both Seth and Heather have secrets about their pasts. Will they be able to keep their skeletons in the closet or will the past come back to haunt them both?

Star Struck was a good opposites attract romance, and Heather and Seth had instant chemistry and I truly enjoyed their banter.

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.
