Starstruck by Amy Clipston: Book Review

  *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.






Can a small-town waitress capture the heart of a world-famous heartthrob?

For Heather Gordon, life in her small North Carolina town has always been simple and uneventful. Until one night when a rowdy food fight breaks out in her family’s restaurant where she’s a waitress. The culprits? The internationally famous rock band, Kirwan. And when Alex Kirwan, the charming and enigmatic lead singer, wants to make amends for his brothers’ (and bandmates’) behavior and invites her to attend one of their concerts as a guest of the band, Heather’s world is turned upside down . . . and sparks fly.

Alex has always loved music, but his rock-star life isn’t all glamorous people and parties. It’s also paparazzi and online tabloids, a new city every week, and the loneliness of touring—even if he has his brothers with him. But with Heather things are different, and he’s instantly smitten and determined to get to know the sweet, pretty woman who has absolutely no interest in his fame. If only he can convince her to take a chance on his crazy life.

Once Alex leaves on tour, he and Heather begin exchanging messages and calls. Despite the distance between them, they find themselves learning they have more in common than they ever could have imagined. But even while Heather and Alex’s relationship deepens, they must face the harsh realities of fame and the pressures it puts on their personal lives. Will their love be enough to overcome the challenges that come with celebrity, or will the rigors of distance and Alex’s life on the road tear them apart?

Filled with heart and the intoxicating allure of possibility, Starstruck is a must-read for anyone who has ever dreamed of finding love in surprising places.

This was a really cute read. Alex and Heather were so sweet together. They met when the rock band he is in with his brothers eat at her family's restaurant... and let's just say, she is not a fan! But they bond over books and hit it off... despite their very different lives. There was definitely a bit of a Hallmark feel to this one--- and I say that in the best way possible. I've really enjoyed celebrity romance books lately, and I like that this one really talked about the not-so-glamourous parts of that--- the paparazzi and opinions of strangers, etc. It certainly gave them some obstacles to work through, while still staying overall fairly drama free. I enjoyed their romance and I found myself wanting to spend more time with them. 

If you enjoy a sweet celebrity romance, this is a good one to check out.
