The Accidental Movie Star (Accidental Star #1)
Interning on a major motion picture is not all bad. She gets to watch some of the scenes and even offer her opinion. “That kiss looked lame. Laughably weak. There’s no chance at an MTV award with that kiss.”...more
Imagine yourself around 15 years old. Sitting on your bed, gazing at your JTT and Devon Sawa posters... you start to daydream. You no longer live in suburban USA with your accountant dad and nurse mom. Nope, you're spending your summer with your LA-hot-shot dad on a set of a big movie. Said movie has some of the hottest names including the even bigger hottie male lead. You're coo...more
I love celebrity romances. Especially where the guy is the famous one and the girls is the normal of the two. I love the fairy tale aspect of it all. When I read the blurb for The Accidental Movie Star, I didn't want to get my hopes to high. I had just abandoned another celebrity-type romance book, and was disheartened, so I learnt my lesson in expectations...
But I have to admit that this story was quite enjoyable and fortunately, I was not disappointed at all. I was hooked into it right away, a...more
This is one of my favorite themes : Famous movie star falling for an ordinary girl!
There's something really hot about how a guy only has eyes
for you, even when he has millions of girls throwing themselves at him.
I loved caz, even though he though he was such an arrogant ass. It was really cute how he constantly wanted the heroine's attention and was always holding her hand and...more
This book is AMAZING.
We start with Ashley standing alone at LAX waiting for her dad - a hot-shot guy in the movie business in Hollywood - to come pick her up so she can start her summer with him and her internship on the set of a new major motion picture. Only her dad doesn't show.
He sends a limo to pick her up, and as soon as she gets in...more
What can I say about this book other than that it's BORING!!! I'm sooo disappointed in this because I expected way more.
Main female character:3 stars.
Main male character:2 stars.
Plot: 2 stars.
Twists: 2 stars.
Writing style: 2 stars (IT WAS SUPER BORING)
This is a story about a girl called Ashly who wants to be an architect. She decides to work in a set for a movie in California where her dad lives. She meet Caz and paparazzi take picture of them together, but they don't know who the girl is since...more
Beautiful boom after such a long time that it actually made me want to cry just for that mere fact.
If you didn't get..let me spell it out..
The main characters were awesome...the storyline and the series was beautiful.
No stupidity shown in the female character...what a change!
Some moments were so sweet that I wouldn't forget for a long time.
I honestly don't even know how what to say about this book. It wasn't awful. It wasn't mind-blown-fantastic either. It was just... eh.
I was frustrated with both Caspian and Ashley. I don't know what compelled me to read this, but I wanted to for some unknown stupid cupid reason, so I bought it. I waited a while too, and it was not worth the wait.
This is technically a YA, but I think it would have been better served as a NA. Having this set during the college years would have made certain things more plausible.
The Accidental Movie Star is also a 'clean' title, meaning no sex, which is fine, but I would have liked a little more emotional and sexual tension. Alex, the heroine, is a very strong character and I loved that she continually stood her ground with the hero, Caz, but part of the problem, for me, was that Alex was so str...more
This is unadulterated escapism and makes for a very fun, light read. Even thou...more
I have to admit - I clicked on this book in the first place because I really like the cover ;) I can't help it! I like covers... LOL...
I read this book over a couple of days - it was really easy to read and to follow. I felt like I could watch this in my head as I read along - I love books that are like this! I am serious when I say - I could SEE it in my head! I don't really have f...more
Almost all hopeless romantic girls (like me) dream of this.
Sparkling lights, famous and gorgeous actors all around, make-up crew on ready, PA all around...
But our darling heroine doesn't want this, but she was given this with an extra.
Ashley is a daughter of a well-known person in show business. She was about to start college, take up architecture and wanted to have a part time job that will add something to her application form. Luckily her dad is well-known she got a...more
“Contrary to what you think, you can’t always get what you want.” Ashley jerked free.
“You’re quoting song lyrics?”
“British ones,” she offered.
I liked that Ashley is passionate about architecture. It just fit with her sensible personality. It's funny that she's more keen about the set-up of the movie set than all the actors and what-not. I also liked that she had so many hobbies outside of Caz. He's practically an afterthoug...more
Both characters are lovely, and both are overflowing with humors. But I think the characters are not so unique. It was actually common. But don't be discouraged. I think the story is good en...more
