#Starstruck Book Review And A Giveaway!
I have been a big fan of Sariah Wilson's writing for a long time, but I think this story might be her best work. It's a fun, sassy romance, with laugh out loud moments, swoon-worthy kisses and characters that pulled me in and didn't let me go.
Zoe Miller is a shy introvert whose had a crush on celebrity Chase Covington since she was a teenager---one that hasn't gone away now she's at college. But when she makes a snarky tweet to him and he singles her out, well, it turns her life upside down. It seems like a dream come true at first when she gets to meet him. She can actually talk to him and not be uncomfortable. He is sweet and kind and seems to really like her. But self-doubt creeps in. How could someone like him want to hang out with someone like her? And can they learn to trust each other when their relationship gets complicated and the world weighs in?
I loved this story. I loved everything about it. Zoe is so hilariously introverted and unpretentious she comes across as someone we can all relate to. And frankly, if I'd met my celebrity crush, I'd probably have reacted the same as she did! But this is more than just a fluffy romance (although there are plenty of swoony moments.) Both Zoe and Chase have dealt with difficult childhoods and the consequences that followed them into adulthood. I like that the author addressed the issues with just enough focus, but didn't get too heavy-handed. Chase is the consummate romantic hero, with just enough vulnerability that will make your heart go pitter-pat while wanting to give him a big hug. I like that the obstacles they faced seemed realistic and kept me turning pages to see how it would all turn out. It's definitely moving to the front of my rainy day shelf, because I know I'll be reading it again and again.
Caution: You will definitely want to block out an afternoon to read this one. I nearly read it all in one sitting because there really is no good stopping place! It's that good.

“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?
