Book Review: A Starstruck Kiss (Wrapped Up in Love #1) by Lauren Blakely

I just love when Lauren Blakely has a free prequel novella to introduce a new series! A Starstruck Kiss is a quick glimpse into Jess and William and how they met. Jess is a med school student, funding her way through college by snapping and selling photos of celebrities. William is British and going to school in the U.S., but his time is running out. He needs a full time job and a work visa in order to stay. Otherwise when his student visa expires in two months, he is heading back to England,

They meet while working on a photo opportunity assignment for their mutual boss. But Jess senses something is off about William. It's not his looks, which are gorgeous; or his accent, which is delicious. Hell it's not even his personality, which is cute and endearing. All of those things are quite
wonderful, albeit distracting, but he just doesn't fit the bill as a paparazzo. Jess vows not to let the charming boy get in the way of her plans of work and school and she will find out what he is really up to. She might even steel a kiss along the way.

I already love William and we have only just begun!! Of course I adored his brother Matthew in the book Far Too Tempting, so I was already really looking forward to this story. He's funny and handsome and hello, BRITISH! What's not to like?! I cannot wait to continue Jess and William's story in Stars in Their Eyes and see how their new partnership works out.

Favorite Quotes
Fine. I was guy crazy. I knew that about myself. I fucking loved them. I loved their chests, and their arms, and their hair, and their eyes, and their guy smell, and their jeans and their abs... and well, you get the point.

Marianna's Rating:

Title: A Starstruck Kiss
Author: Lauren Blakely
Series: Wrapped Up in Love #1
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
There are no two ways about it — William Harrigan is a certified babe. He’s sexy, smart, and British, and he wants nothing more than to charm the pants off fellow college senior Jess Leighton. Well, he does want other things; he just can’t tell her about the job he’s working on since it maybe, possibly involves her. Jess, who moonlights as a celebrity photographer, is laser-focused on earning enough money snapping pics to pay her way through grad school, but when the criminally handsome William starts moving in on her turf, she’s got to fend off the competition from him as well as resist her desire to smother him in kisses because William makes her heart race and her skin sizzle.

Too bad this man is not to be trusted.

Right? Except if Jess wants to snag the million-dollar picture she desperately needs, she’ll have no choice but to trust Will, and he’ll have to come clean about everything he wants from Jess. Including her.

*A STARSTRUCK KISS is book 1 in WRAPPED UP IN LOVE, a spin-off series of the NYT Bestselling CAUGHT UP IN LOVE series.*
