Book Review – Star Struck (Hollywood Heat, #2) by Laurelin Paige


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.

Star Struck was another sexy and entertaining standalone contemporary romance in the Hollywood Heat series, and I really enjoyed it! The storyline and characters were great, and I loved Laurelin Paige’s writing style. Star Struck hasn’t been my favorite novel from this author so far, but I’m still looking forward to reading the next standalone in the series, One More Time.

   Seth and Heather were wonderful characters, and I liked them and their story a lot. The sexual tension and red-hot chemistry between them was off-the-charts steamy; Laurelin Paige definitely knows how to write intimate scenes. Seth and Heather had likable personalities, and I enjoyed how their relationship progressed throughout for the most part. I enjoyed reading the book from both Seth and Heather’s POV, and most of their banter and interactions with each other. There were a few parts and aspects throughout that I didn’t care for as much, and that I found frustrating and annoying at times, but overall Star Struck was an enjoyable read, and I was satisfied with the conclusion to Seth and Heather’s story.

   Star Struck was a sexy and entertaining standalone contemporary romance in the Hollywood Heat series, and I thought Laurelin Paige did a great job with this book. It hasn’t been my favorite novel from her so far, but I’m looking forward to reading more, especially the rest of the Hollywood Heat series!


About the Author

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.
