Over one million “likes”—but only one of them matters.
After pop star Ryan De Luna praises Maisy Harrison’s YouTube cover of his classic hit, he offers Maisy and her fledgling band the opportunity of a lifetime: to be his opening act.
Music may be Maisy’s life, but she has one ground rule: never date a musician. That goes double for a heartbreaker like Ryan. If only she didn’t feel so vulnerable to his larger-than-life charm. And maybe now more than ever, when he asks for her help to shake off his playboy image. How can she resist playing the part of his fake girlfriend for the duration of the tour?
Ryan’s never met anyone like Maisy. She sees past all the star-studded fame and treats him like any other guy. And the more time they spend together, the more he finds himself falling for her. Now he’d like to make their imaginary fling an IRL thing. But can he convince her to take a chance and trust him with her heart?
Another well written clean, romance from Sariah Wilson. She brings her characters alive so easily and it’s refreshing to have a romance that starts off on such a basic level as this. As with the first #Lovestruck book, it was a nice change that there was a man who respected a woman’s boundaries and wasn’t trying to change her mind about what she wanted or how she wanted to experience things. I also loved that there as a little appearance from Chase and Zoe from the #Starstruck book.
I liked Maisy. I liked her rules, and how determined she really wanted to stick to them. I liked the way she was with her brothers and the way she treated the people around her. I loved the chemistry between her and Ryan. It was instant, and it was written brilliantly. Maisy and her brothers banter was great, and I’m secretly hoping that if there is another #Lovestruck book then it’ll be about one of them. I’m not bothered which one!!
Ryan was a gentleman and I really liked him. I loved that he treated Maisy with respect, especially when it came to her decision about waiting to have sex. He may have hinted that’s what he wanted, but he kept within her boundaries. I loved his sense of humour and how honest he was.
The storyline flowed brilliantly. I wish we’d seen more from Ryan’s point of view but it still worked really well. The little things are the things that make this book, not the big monumental moments. It’s the little things like how a photo is described or how things are said. There is one moment where I thought Maisy was a bit harsh, unfair and a little too hotheaded for her own good, but it all worked out fine. I do love a good ending.
I’m really hoping that there will be another book in this series. I love Sariah Wilson’s writing and her characters. I love that there is chemistry, passion and a fairly normal feel to the people within her books. I love that there are sexy men who do not instantly want to jump into a woman’s underwear (and that it doesn’t happen) and that her books are full of humour, witty comments and fierce women.
