#Starstruck by Sariah Wilson

“You’ve done better.”

With one uncharacteristically sassy tweet to her longtime celebrity crush, Zoe Miller’s life turns upside down. Ultrahot A-lister Chase Covington doesn’t just respond to Zoe’s tweet, he does the unthinkable: he messages Zoe directly. Now she must decide between walking away or meeting her crush in person.

Chase knows better than to trust anyone from the Internet, but Zoe’s saucy challenge has totally caught his interest—and her girl-next-door personality is keeping it. He’s been burned enough to know he needs to keep his heart close. But his feelings for Zoe might be a lot more than just an online flirtation. He just has to convince her…

When the press gets wind of Zoe and Chase’s secret relationship, their romance turns into tabloid headlines. Will they be able to hold on to their Hollywood love story?

 

Excerpt 

“My mom is home. You have to go. Right now.”

While my mother had matured over the last eleven years since she’d married Duncan, I didn’t want her to meet Chase and get all fangirl and weird and talking about her own brush with fame. It was humiliating enough in school; the last thing I wanted was for him to find out.

But he wasn’t budging. I pushed against him again, and it was like trying to move a brick wall. A hot, muscular, well-defined brick wall, but still. “I’m serious. You have to go.”

“Are you embarrassed by me?” he asked in a voice that was both bewildered and amused. But at least he finally took a step back. I grabbed him by the wrist, dragging him into the living room. I grabbed his jacket off of the couch and started shoving him toward my mom’s bedroom in the very back of the house.

“That’s not it. It’s…difficult to explain.”

“Aren’t you a little old to be in trouble for having a boy over while you’re babysitting?”

“You just need to leave.” I opened one of the windows and pulled out the screen, dropping it on the ground. I’d put it back later. I indicated that he should use the exit I’d just provided.

“Do you seriously want me to climb out a window?”

I heard the door from the garage to the kitchen open and then shut. My mom called out, “Zoe?”

Frantic, I started pushing him, trying to force him out. He laughed quietly but did give in. “I’m going, I’m going. But you have a lot of explaining to do.”

“Whatever,” I said.

He sat down on the windowsill, hanging one leg over the ledge. His attention was drawn to the massive poster that hung over my mother’s bed. It hadn’t even occurred to me to try and block his view or take it down. “Is that your mom?”

That stupid picture had made my life miserable for years. I would have kept it from him if I could.

My mother called my name again. It sounded like she was coming down the hallway.

I was about ready to throw all my weight against him. “Yes, it’s my mom. Now go!”

Laughing, he swung both legs through the open window and jumped the three feet to the ground, landing easily. Then he made a dramatic, Shakespearean-type bow. “’Til next we meet, my lady.”

 

Love, love, love this one!!!

From the well-developed characters to the fun storyline to the perfect ending… this is my kind of book.

The kind of book I didn’t want to put down. I started it yesterday afternoon and stayed up way too late last night finishing it. I love a good book that I can’t put down… #Starstuck is that kind of book!

 

Rating: 5 Stars – I LOVED it!

Content: no language, some innuendo, and talk of sex, lots of kissing. I would still label this as clean but it’s not squeaky clean, there’s definitely some steam.

$50 Release Day Giveaway + Get The Trustworthy Groom for just 99 Cents!!

The Trustworthy Groom by Cami Checketts

Hailey Knight has two choices: fall prey to a predator who is out to own her and destroy her football team, or marry a man she’s just met. True, her fake husband can make her quiver with a touch, gets her jokes, and is patience personified, but she knows better than anyone how quickly charm can turn ugly.

Brady Giles has dealt with a sweetheart stalker for two years and has no hope of shaking the annoyance. He steps in to rescue the beautiful and feisty Hailey Knight from a leering idiot and somehow ends up engaged to her.

The marriage is supposed to help them both out of sticky situations, but instead turns into a media hailstorm with lies and attacks coming from all sides. When Hailey falls in love with her fake husband and danger lurks around every corner, she knows it’s time to run, but Brady has never given up on an impossible battle.

Excerpt

Hailey’s brain scrambled for an out, any out. She put on a fake smile and said, “You don’t know how much I wish I could have dinner with you tonight, but you must not have heard … I’m recently engaged.” She kept a straight face when she wanted to gasp in shock. Where had that come from, and who was she going to claim she was engaged to?

William released her hair and actually took a step back, the scowl on his face ruining all his supposed good looks. “You are?” His eyes strayed to her left hand. She clasped it with her right to hide her naked finger. “To whom?”

A dark-haired man appeared at her table. Hailey dealt with burly football players every day of her life, but this guy’s shape still gave her pause. He was probably around six three and two hundred and fifty pounds. Every inch was muscle, not bodybuilder muscle but lean and functional and covered by smooth, tanned skin. He definitely had some Italian heritage in him as dark and good-looking as he was. Hailey had a strict policy of not checking out her own team’s football players, but she knew every single one of them. This guy wasn’t on her roster.

“Excuse me.” The man’s deep voice washed over her as his dark eyes looked at her with concern then flashed to William with annoyance. “Do you need some help?”

Yes, yes she did. Hailey grasped his arm and cuddled into his side, wrapping her other arm around his waist. “Thank you for coming to check on me, sweetheart.” His body tightened at the way she was trying to manhandle him, impossible to really do as she was almost a foot shorter and less than half his bodyweight, but she needed help, and she needed it now. The solution was so clear. William would back off if she were engaged. He would have to. Then there would be no repercussions on her football team and no coercion to date, and especially not to stay the night with, the slime ball VP.

“Um, sure … anything for you, honey.” The man wrapped his arm around her shoulder, and Hailey had never felt so safe as he gently pulled her close. Safety and reassurance were amazing and unexpected feelings to have at the moment, especially after the fear of William clogging her throat mere seconds ago and the fact that she naturally shied away from well-built men. The emotion of it all made her weak, and she found herself leaning against his muscular chest.

The dark-haired guy glanced down at her and winked. Ooh, he was quick too. She ticked off his positive qualities in her mind—not one of her football brothers, handsome with strong facial features, brown eyes framed with dark lashes, and smart. She might even give this guy a date to prove they were engaged.

“This is my fiancé,” she said to William, inclining her chin with pride.

The man kind of started, but he stayed close to her side as he released her from his hold and stuck his hand out to William. “Brady Giles. Pleasure to meet you …”

Brady Giles? Oh, crap, he was one of her players! He’d recently transferred from New England. He was one of the top cornerbacks in the nation, and they were extremely blessed to get him, but the Brady Giles she’d seen from the sidelines had long, dark wavy hair and a full beard. This guy with the cropped hair and clean shaven model-gorgeous face was a Brady Giles she’d never expected—sharp and way too appealing. What had she done?
