Goodreads Summary:
“You’ve done better.”

With one uncharacteristically sassy tweet to her longtime celebrity crush, Zoe Miller’s life turns upside down. Ultrahot A-lister Chase Covington doesn’t just respond to Zoe’s tweet, he does the unthinkable: he messages Zoe directly. Now she must decide between walking away or meeting her crush in person.

Chase knows better than to trust anyone from the Internet, but Zoe’s saucy challenge has totally caught his interest—and her girl-next-door personality is keeping it. He’s been burned enough to know he needs to keep his heart close. But his feelings for Zoe might be a lot more than just an online flirtation. He just has to convince her

When the press gets wind of Zoe and Chase’s secret relationship, their romance turns into tabloid headlines. Will they be able to hold on to their Hollywood love story?


What a thoroughly enjoyable love story! I was afraid #Starstruck would be melodramatic given the Hollywood aspect of the story but that was not the case at all. The story was surprisingly down-to-earth and the characters were adorkable.

I loved the writing in #Starstruck. The story was very well put together making it a breeze to read. A lot of it was really relatable even though I doubt anything like it would ever happen in real life (but you just really never know). The little tidbits that at first felt like they were just mentioned in passing, actually play a bigger part in the plot. I was really impressed with how certain things came full circle.

I adored Zoe and her random fact-sharing ways. She had her insecurities but was brave enough to step out of her comfort zone to pursue her happiness. Her emotions definitely experienced some highs and lows but through it all Zoe stood by her principles. One of her actions bothered me (lying (sometimes by omission) to her loved ones especially to her best friend) however I was pleased to see her address the issue herself.

How sweet can a guy be because Chase Covington is almost too good to be true. I loved his effortless charms and easygoing personality. For someone who acts for a living he was real genuine when it came to his personal life. Chase wasn't a squeaky clean guy but he was always honest and did his best. So dreamy!

I'm happy to see the main characters tackle some social issues in #Starstruck. Discussions of Chase's alcoholism and Zoe's celibacy vow were more than welcomed and so beneficial to their growth. It was honestly just so great to see Zoe and Chase work through the differences in their beliefs. Their banter is super adorable with hilarious innuendos abound.

#Starstruck is such a dreamy and swoony romance. I strongly encourage fans of modern Cinderella type stories to pick up a copy. You may very well be dazzled ;)
