Review: Star Struck by Laurelin Paige

She uses her fame as a wall around her heart, and only he can tear it down.
Seth Rafferty knows Heather Wainwright’s type.
Demanding. Check.
Self-important. Check.
Leggy and blonde. Yeah, he knows the drill.
He’s been a Hollywood production designer far too long to have patience for A-listers with a superior attitude. Beautiful women with a chip on their shoulder are a dime a dozen.
Which is why his obsession with Heather makes no sense. Nothing about her is attractive.
Except the vulnerability under the sass. The honesty under the attitude.
So when wrap-party flirting gets carried away, Seth doesn’t stop it from turning into a sizzling night of passion. Too late, he realizes, one night isn’t going to get her out of his system.
On to plan B: uncover the real woman under the diva.
Soon Heather will find out that Seth isn’t just a simple carpenter she can use and lose without consequences. He’ll play the part of the builder, but it’s her walls he intends to break down.

This was a pleasant read. I remember when it was first published I didn't really want to give this one a try only based on the fact I didn't like Heather. Now I reconsidered because I'm a different reader, one who believes everyone has a story to tell and everyone has different experience to share. I gave Heather another chance and by the end of the book, I was glad I did because she's a interesting character who evolves so much during the whole book. You see her progress. You witness the reason she protects her heart.

Seth was a complete surprise to me. I didn't what to expect, would he be cute? Cocky? Alpha? Well he's all three. Interesting right? He also tries to protect his heart. He has his own demon to battle and even if his attraction to Heather is instant, his favorite hobby would be to put a certain "princess" back to earth.

Star Struck offers a fantastic balance between sweet moments and steamy ones. Our MC's undeniable attraction was terribly frustrating at first. Things escalate quite quickly and once they give in, it's an explosion of lust and feelings.

I enjoyed how Laurelin Paige makes her characters grow. She always had the ability to give this little something more in her books that makes me take a seat back and just analyze the way her flawed characters gain in maturity and change.

If you haven't met Heather & Seth years ago, here's your chance to change this right away.
