Description

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.

This book was previously published. It has been re-edited for this release.

    Hollywood Diva, Heather Wainwright, is the Star of this show! This heartfelt, fun and sexy romance was a delight to read. Heather has a reputation for being a Hollywood Diva. She puts up thick walls to hide the secret she is so afraid to face. Seth Rafferty is a sexy, dominant, carpenter/production designer. He also has a past he is keeping secret. When Heather & Seth first meet they have instant attraction and the sparks fly. Then unfortunately Heather misunderstands who Seth really is and puts up her protective diva walls. Seth is both offended and turned on in equal measure by Heathers' attitude. Heather also has her conflicts with the sexy, dominant carpenter. Their chemistry is so feverish, they are helpless to stay away from each other. Their banter was their foreplay leading to some very steamy and fiery passion. They are so alike in many ways, wanting to be loved for who they are, and not for their past or their profession. When secrets come to light, will their love be enough to keep their hearts from breaking or will the lies be just too much? I really liked both Heather & Seth, they were so perfect for each other, making the other a better person. I thought their vulnerability, and flaws were authentic and their growth honest. I loved Heather's assistant, Lexie, she was so loyal and funny and her devotion and support of Heather was brilliant. I really enjoyed this charming, heartfelt and sexy romance!

    Hiding from her past, Hollywood diva Heather wanted nothing to do with the crews she worked with and even looked down on them. Seth is a production designer who has a past if his own. Sparks fly between them even though she thinks he's only a carpenter. As she battles and tries to hide what she considers the demons of her past, Seth embraces his but lies to Heather about his profession. He feels guilty about it but it just keeps snowballing. Once it comes to light, Heather wants nothing to do with him. Through her heartache

    This is a re-read for me. Star Struck is getting re-released on July 27th. I originally read it back in 2015 and I loved reading about Seth and Heather again. This is one of my favorite couples. I love, love that the heroine is the Star in this book. So many of the actor romance novels have the Hero as the huge star and the heroine the average everyday person. Although, I will say there is NOTHING average about Seth. He is famous in his own right, Heather just doesn't recognize who he is. Heather has become known as the Diva in the entertainment industry. She earns this title but not in the way you think she does. She's a deeper character than what she lets everyone see. She has insecurities just like the average person. Don't get me wrong, she is a snob. She even admits to this, but you learn the reasons why she feels she has to be. Seth, oh man Seth! I think it's safe to say I am a huge fan of Seth. It may have been sneaky of him to not reveal who he really is to Heather, but you can't really blame him either. Just like her, he wants her to want him for who he is not for what he does. Because of her trying to resist this "blue collar" worker and his insistence to push her past her snobbery, this was a very entertaining read. ARC provided by Author
  • Entertaining and Sexy Enemies to Lovers Romance!

    4.5 stars This was an entertaining and sexy enemies to lovers romance. We first met Heather in Sex Symbol, but we really get to know and see a whole other side to her in Star Struck. A case of mistaken identity between our characters just added to the fun. This book can be read as a stand alone, but some characters do appear in the book Sex Symbol. I will admit that I was not a huge fan of Heather at the start of this book. It took me a bit to get past the snobbish and cold diva and see the kinder and more vulnerable woman underneath. Watching Heather battle the demons of her past and grow into a strong and confidant person was empowering. I also really loved Lexie and how she constantly challenged, but also supported, Heather. She was an amazing friend first and assistant second. I really hope that she will get her own story in the future. Unlike Heather, I was smitten with Seth right from the start and that only increased as the story progressed. I loved that he called things as they were and his take charge attitude (in and out of the bedroom). He was unapologetic about his past and although I didn't fully agree, I did understand his reasoning for keeping his cards close to the vest. The best part about both Heather and Seth though, was that they each made the other person a stronger and better version of themselves. They had instant, red hot chemistry and there were times I thought my kindle might spontaneously combust from the heat from these two! I really enjoyed this opposites attract romance and was glad there wasn't any unnecessary drama and that the angst centered on issues between our hero and heroine. I do wish there had been an epilogue or a little bit more at the end, but overall, this was a really fun and steamy read! Please note: This book was previously published.
