Book Review: Stars in Their Eyes (Caught Up in Love #2) by Lauren Blakely

First of all, if you haven't read the FREE prequel novella A Starstruck Kiss, stop now and go read it. It sets up this book so perfectly so I highly recommend you start there.

Now, 21 year old Jess is pre-med and paying her way through collage working as a paparazzo. If she can somehow snag some photos of the upcoming celeb wedding, it would pay for a nice amount of her classes. William graduates college in two months and is doing some part time work at a security/private investigation company. As great as graduating will be, he also dreads it since his student visa will be up and he'll have to return to England. Unless he can find a full-time job to sponsor his work visa.

Jess and William both have something the other desperately needs. William can get her into the wedding and Jess can give him the intel he needs on paparazzo. While they have agreed to help each other out, there is so much more going on between these two. Though Jess didn't want to get involved with any guy right now, she simply can't resist is charm. But while they are falling for each other, will everything else fall into place so they can both get whet they need?

Lauren Blakely used the most perfect word to describe this new book of hers" swoony. Totally spot on. I love William. L.O.V.E. He is sweet and attentive and has such a way with words. Especially dirty Italian ones. Jess is a very strong heroine who is determined to stay focused on her end goal. The two of them together was just wonderful. This story was sweet and funny and I enjoyed the unique paparazzo plot. It was a fun read that was low on the angst meter and a perfect way to fill an afternoon. And true to Lauren Blakely form, you can expect some cameos from some of our favorite characters from her other books.

Favorite Quotes
"I hope you know I adore kissing you."

"I can't think of anything I'd rather do than be naked with you."

"If you ever can't find me, it's because I got lost touching your breasts."

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!**
