Pam's rating: 4 of 5 ⭐️

A sexy and swoony new adult romance...

Celebrity photographer and college senior Jess Leighton desperately needs to crash the wedding of the year. Snapping just one pic of the A-list Hollywood couple tying the knot will pay her way through grad school. But with security tighter than the bride-to-be's corset, she'll need more than her camera and smarts, she'll need help from her biggest rival--hot, British, motorcycle-riding William Harrigan, whose sexy accent can melt the panties off any woman. He’s the last person Jess should trust, but he's her only ticket in.

William Harrigan wants one thing – to stay in L.A. past college graduation. With a student visa set to expire, the clock is ticking. When he lands a gig that pairs him with the beautiful blond spitfire Jess, he’s scored his best shot at living out the American dream. Winning her trust would be a whole lot easier, however, if he didn’t have ulterior motives...

But there’s no faking the intense attraction between them. Try as they might to resist each other, soon sparks are flying, as they devise a plan to sneak into the ceremony. But when Jess' new celebrity client raises the stakes, she starts to smell blackmail, and soon she and Will are chasing down cheating directors, staking out clandestine trysts, and making fake IDs, all while sneaking scene-stealing kisses and hot nights together.

The audience loves a happy ending, but in a town where everyone's acting and no one's playing by the rules, can Jess and William find their own ever after in time?

**STARS IN THEIR EYES is a spin-off of the New York Times & USA Today Bestselling CAUGHT UP IN LOVE series. It is the start of the new adult series WRAPPED UP IN LOVE.**

Stars in Their Eyes picks up exactly where A Starstruck Kiss leaves off

Jess is a college student who is trying to put herself through Medical School by selling pictures of Hollywood Stars. She is a take charge because I need to control things kind of gal. She will stop at nothing to get that epic picture from the most talked about wedding in LA. The biggest hurdle is how to get past security.

After spending some time with William she discovers that he is in fact not an enemy trying to take her job, but has a separate job all of his own. He is acting as a PI doing research for a famous client, for insider information on how the paparazzos are able to get these pictures. He also happens to be part of security for that LA wedding. Working any job he can find while looking for a Visa sponsor so he can stay in America once finished school.

Jess and William decide that they should work together and help each other get what they want. They realized quickly that they enjoyed each other’s company. Jess thinks of William as the forbidden fruit. Fighting very hard to keep William at arm’s length but the attraction just might be too strong to resist andsoon the sexual tension takes over. This sends Jess for a bit of a spin but she is still focused on her goal.

Research and stake outs have never been this fun. Being in the right place at the right time is the key. One picture leads to a string of events result in anger, revenge, bribery, lies, co-conspiracy, hurt and misunderstandings. Things are not always as they seem in Hollywood. Can they still come out on top with their goals accomplished? That is the question.

This book was fun, witty and fast paced but doesn’t lack any romance and awe.
