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!**

5 out of 5 stars

Loved this! Excellent pace, great build, and solid story that was entertaining and sexy! I adore Jess and William, they were great characters.

Jess was strong and determined and had some past issues that still weighed heavily on her. A very relevant issues in today's world and kudos to Lauren Blakey for including something so very real. I loved William, he was so caring, sweet, and totally swoon worthy! I thought their growing friendship and attraction developed at a great pace and I loved every second of it. Jess and William give new meaning to the words “hot kiss.” The build between them was incredible and it lead to some really passionate and steamy times. I enjoyed their ups and downs and adventures. Everything seemed so real and true to me. I loved the fact that Jess and William were just these open and honest people falling in love and trusting.

I enjoyed the secondary characters in this as well, I really liked Jess’s roommate Anika a lot. There were a ton of cross over characters from other Lauren Blakely stories, I won't say who because it's always fun to discover them... but two of my very favorite couples make an appearance. I was thrilled about that. 

This was just so FUN to read. There was just the right amount of drama with a bit of mystery thrown in. I absolutely enjoyed all the movie references and the hero/heroine mentions. I had a great time trying to figure out which celebrity might be the one being referenced. It was just this entertaining element that was added that made me like it all even more. As a dog person, I have to say I really liked all the dog interactions as well.

This storyline had all these great twists and turns, just when I thought something might be predictable it wasn’t and I found that really refreshing. Great ending, so very sweet! 

Stars In Their Eyes left me with a big ol' smile on my face. I think I have a new favorite Hariggan brother.
