Title: Star Struck
Series: Lights, Camera Companion
Author: Laurelin Paige
Summary: Onto every diva’s backside, a little wood must fall.Lights, Camera, Book 2 Hollywood actress Heather Wainwright was looking forward to a long, relaxing break before starting her next shoot. Except her assistant volunteered her for L.A.’s annual 24 Hour Plays. Nervous about doing a good job for such a worthy charity, Heather falls back on “diva” mode, a defense mechanism that always carries her through. Until she encounters something that really gets on her nerves—a lowly carpenter whose Norse god eyes pierce right through her. Highly sought-after production designer Seth Rafferty has little patience for A-listers with superior attitudes, which is why his attraction to Heather is absurd. Yet, sensing vulnerability beneath her screen-queen act, he lets her assumptions play out. After the wrap party, Heather awakens with little memory of the night before—except that Seth gave her the best orgasm of her life, then disappeared. When he shows up on the set of her next movie, she winds up to give him a piece of her mind…and Seth shows her just how stinging hot “chemistry” can get. Warning: Contains an outwardly snobby actress with a good heart, a delicious carpenter with a power drill, some much-deserved spanking, and an appropriately consensual—if tipsy—orgasm, as well as sex at an inappropriate time of the month.
5 Stars Stuck On Rafferty <3
Star Struck is a sexy, fun, standalone spin off from Take Two.
We met Heather Wainwright briefly in Take Two, as Micah’s co-star. Being a wildly successful Hollywood actress has not solved all of Heather’s troubles. Having come from a not so happy home and growing up poor in a trailer park with two addict parents have left some very lasting impressions on Heather. Heather has learned to keep her heart safe; you need to put up walls. Push people away, keep them at arm’s length, never allowing anyone too close. Most importantly, live up to your image and what people believe you to be. On the inside Heather is just a woman, with the same insecurities, fears and the same self image issues any of us have. She is lonely, and longs for affection, a relationship, that special someone. She’s not to ever admitting to it though. Enter stage left, sexy, smart mouthed, stubborn and unshakable Seth Rafferty. A sexy, talented, alpha, production designer with his own baggage and insecurities.
When Heather and Seth meet, their chemistry, combustible and explosive. From the moment they lay eyes on each other it is, simply put lust at first sight. These two characters are so incredibly strong and stubborn that the banter and battle of wills is half of the fun in Star Struck. The other half comes from some amazingly sexy and steamy scenes, one of which may or may not include a 69. That’s right, I said 69! Impeccable writing, pacing, flow and storytelling round out a fabulous way to spend an afternoon. Star Struck, is not purely sexy times, Laurelin Paige always manages to round out her stories, incredibly sexy scenes with enough emotions to make the reader truly ache for the characters. Raw emotion and a perfect amount drama make you truly root for Heather and Seth. In fact I found myself rooting for Seth, from the moment I met him. I wanted him to show that snotty and superficial actress, that everyone deserves affection and unconditional love. Show her that image, is just that. Image and appearances only count for they are worth. Unconditional love is priceless. I loved Star Stuck, I loved Seth, and I even ended up loving Heather in the end. I’m willing to bet that you’re going to love it too, so go ahead and get Star Struck, I did.
Laurelin Paige is the NY Times and USA Today Bestselling Author of the Fixed Trilogy. She's 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 Mad Men and the Walking Dead, or dreaming of Adam Levine.
