Starshine by Melody Winter
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
::..Reviewed for Red's Midnight Readers..::
I was kindly provided with an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. I have given it 5 sunshine filled stars.
First book I have read by the author and it certainly will not be the last. She is definitely one talented lady. She had me hooked from the very first word and held my attention captive until the very end.
I couldn't put it down!!
Normally celeb filled stories normally hold zero interest for me but there was something about Starshine that compelled me to read it. It was cleverly written and flowed nicely at a good pace with a plot that kept me turning the pages. It was so intense with lots of angst and drama and secrets that kept revealing themselves at every turn and unraveling the plot further and further. I almost felt like I was reading about real life at times.
Ella is sweet and charming and I couldn't help but fall in love with her. She was funny and genuine and definitely what Alex needed after years of heartbreak. Alex on the other hand, you have to break beneath his icy exterior to see his true self. He's clever and sexy and together these characters were electric.
This is an absolute must read!
Film student Ella Summers can’t believe her luck when she is selected to work on the set of the most anticipated film release of the year—STARSHINE. For the next four weeks, she’ll be in the studio with heart-throb and leading man Alex Denton, and his co-star—and recent ex—the stunning Amy Strickland.
But her first day on set has her questioning the true character of the enigmatic and sexy Alex. The charming celebrity she’s adored on screen disappears before her very eyes—if indeed he ever really existed.
Off-camera arguments between Alex and Amy become difficult to ignore, and when Ella uncovers layers of deceit and closely guarded secrets between them, she becomes involved in a battle that has far-reaching implications.
With the paparazzi hounding her every move for the most sensational story they can get, Ella becomes deeply embroiled in Alex’s life. Can she break down his seemingly impenetrable walls, or will he remain the arrogant ass she first met?
STARSHINE is set in London, England. Beware though—Alex Denton has a crude mouth, and an equally wicked smile.
