She uses her fame as a wall around her heart, and only he can tear it down.
Seth Rafferty knows Heather Wainwright’s type.
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.

Star Struck is one fun and steamy enemies to lovers romance. I went into this completely blind and I’m glad I did. Not that there is anything crazy or has some weird twists. It’s just that it is easy to stereotype or have specific expectations going into something and it was nice not to have that with Star Struck. I also didn’t know it had be previous release and was re-edited with a new cover.
Heather Wainwright is one of the hottest actresses in Hollywood right now and she has a bit of a Diva reputation. There’s so much more to her than what the pubic sees but Heather doesn’t let anyone know that. Except for her assistant. There’s a reason why she is the way she is and we finally get to figure it out all thanks to the hot carpenter guy that she meets and becomes instantly attracted to and ends up his enemy.
The moment Seth Rafferty locks his eyes on Heather, he knows he’s a goner. The problem is, she’s a complete Diva and he can’t understand why he is so attracted to someone yet at the same time he wants to strangle her. All he knows is that he’s ready to find out just who Heather is, no matter what it takes.
The tug of war between Seth and Heather was just down right delicious. The sexual tension between the two while teetering on that love/hate line has you glued to the book, wanting to see what’s going to happen with them.
I’ll be honest and say that I didn’t really connect with the characters as much as I would have liked. I liked the story and it kept me interested, I just wasn’t fully invested in them emotionally. Even though this considered a light read for me because of how much dark I like, I still wish I had a deeper connection. I did feel like I connected a bit more to Seth than Heather. Probably because of his alpha bedroom tendencies sucked me in. Haha
Overall, I enjoyed this book. It’s a fun, easy read with a seriously hot and sexually demanding hero. It’s pretty light and doesn’t have much angst. Normally I crave angst but I didn’t feel like I needed it here.
