WARNING: The hero in this book is not an asshole. He is hot, charming, smart, funny, ripped, gorgeous, respectful and completely panty-melting. Please proceed.

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 the start of the sexy, swoony and scandalous new adult series Wrapped Up in Love, which is a spin-off of the NYT and USA Today Bestselling Caught Up in Love series. You don't need to have read Caught Up in Love to follow this new series, but you'll likely enjoy those books!**

Jess Leighton is paying her way through college by taking pictures. SHe is basically the paparazzi. She stalks celebrities trying to snap pictures of them at their worst and at their best hoping to make just enough money to make her dreams of being a doctor come true. When Jess finds out that one of the biggest weddings of the year will be happening she is on the hunt to get the perfect picture for a healthy payout.

William Harrigan just moved to California in the US and in order to stay there he needs to get a job visa. William thinks Jess is his big ticket to get that visa. He definitely didn’t count on falling in love with her. Who knew that there adventure together would be full of lies, deceit, blackmail, and falling in love?

Stars in their Eyes” was a very interesting. This is a very flirty and fun mystery. I think the book went by really fast and was a fun read. I feel like this is agreat if you just want to enjoy a quick fun book on a sunny afternoon or a rainy day. The characters seemed to be a lot of fun. They aren’t my most favorite characters but I do believe they were lots of fun at times. I think this book is very fun to read but probably not something I would pick up again. It is one of those fun light hearted one time reads.
