Falling for him wasn’t in the plans…

Most girls would kill for the opportunity to work for Jack McAlister, Hollywood’s hottest actor, but twenty-one-year-old Jessica Beckett is ready to kick him out of her red Ford Fiesta and never look back. She should be spending her junior year in France, eating pastries and sharpening her foreign language skills. Instead she’s reluctantly working as Jack’s personal assistant, thanks to her powerhouse talent agent aunt.

Jack is private, prickly, and downright condescending. Jessica pushes his buttons—she’s not the type of girl to swoon over celebrity heartthrobs, precisely why her aunt thought she’d be perfect for the job—and Jack pushes right back.

But as she begins to peel away his layers, Jessica is shocked to find she craves her boss’s easy smile and sexy blue eyes. The problem is, so does the entire female population. And what started out as the job from hell soon has Jess wondering if a guy like Jack could ever find love with a regular girl like her.

 

Review: Beyond the Stars by Stacy Wise is hilarious, sweet, and hot. Readers will be swept up by the beautiful tale faster than they can blink. The story is easy to relate to…and the characters are easy to connect with on every level. I found the bantering both internal and physical funny. It added to the characters’ struggles and only intensified their situations at hand. I have never read a novel by Stacy Wise until now and I am completely in love with her style of writing. There’s enough of everything to make readers wish they were inside the plot. Fast-paced and brilliantly well-told. I can’t think of a better novel than this one.

Stacy Wise brings the world of Hollywood, the paparazzi, and a love that may or may not bloom into full swing. A rising male actor is dealing with the life of having cameras in his face constantly whether he’s acting or just going about his life as normal as possible. His past actions have deemed him as the bad guy. The one that is a complete man whore. But despite him taking his stardom to live a rich lifestyle in the past, Jack is now trying to live like a decent man. However, the paparazzi want to feature him as the bad guy just to bring in cash. Jack soon finds himself raising a pig whom he passes onto his new assistant. She’s younger most assistants and yet there’s something about her…that gets to Jack. Jessica or Jess as everyone knows her is having a tough time trying to do the work Jack hands her. Such as looking after his pet pig. It takes time, to grow attached to the pet pig. This soon leads to a bond between Jack and Jess. Only time will tell, if their instant chemistry, will survive or die with the events ahead.

Beyond the Stars contains a lot of, laugh-out-loud moments and moments where I felt my heart melting. Overall, I would highly recommend this new title to readers everywhere.
