It seems I don’t get to read too many books about celebrities where the heroine is the huge star and falls for the every day regular guy. So I was very excited to read this one! Having read Rachel Lacey before, I was expecting a sweet story and she definitely delivers on that.
Katherine Hayes is a huge pop star with a clean image. She meets a hot guy in a suit in Central Park while she was incognito walking her dogs while in town. Most adorable meet cute scene! I couldn’t help but immediately like both of these characters and think they had great chemistry together.
While this book is on the light-hearted side, it also has emotional depth. Both characters have gone through (and are going through) some tough situations. It was nice to see the balance and how all of it affected their relationship. It felt natural in a world that is nothing but fantasy for me.
I think my favorite thing was the fact that Katherine was so down to earth, so caring for her fans but not letting the stardom change who she was. While I liked the hero, he was more on the beta side for me and maybe didn’t stand out as much. But I can definitely see the merit in him being the perfect counterpart to Katie.
When I saw this was a duet I thought their story would continue on book two but I was pleased to see book 2 is about Katie’s assistant and her romance. I’m so excited to read it because I adored her in this one.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
