Having been deceived as a young teen into taking experimental medication, Lia now faces death. Already an accomplished Hollywood star at the tender age of 18, this stoic young woman experiences life choices and issues that would buckle almost anyone else.

Her soul mate, Manuel, waits patiently in the background, always there for her regardless of circumstance, as she struggles with lust and her overabundance of hormones. Lia survived cancer but her pituitary will never recover. With all that she

Wonderful, by far the best of the series. More review to come but had to put this out. Loved it! This was a stand alone novel if needed to be, the writing is smooth, with connections to the earlier story without over doing it. The characters development in growing up is great, open and honest, there was so many things i enjoyed about this book! I am so looking forward to the next novel.

Spoiler warning! This is the 3rd book in the series and contains spoilers from the previous 2 books.

This is the third book in the Starlet series and follows Lia/Marie as she heads to the UK to start filming her latest project. With the moment she meets Pierre fast approaching and her health still in the balance, there's still a lot for her to deal

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Book EVER !!, May 12, 2013 By Marcia Sherrill (NEW YORK, NY, US)
This review is from: Starlet's Light (The Starlet Series, #3) (Kindle Edition)

I'm twenty and it's about time someone talked about God in a romance novel. We have vampires and players, witches, and social outcasts who never talk about God. We have teens having sex with their brother or getting gang raped, wanting to kill themselves, or deciding if they're

Remember how yesterday I said Starlet’s Run was better than the first book, Starlet’s Web? Well Starlet’s Light is better than both! The overall quality of writing is better, the characters are better as they mature and Carla Hanna’s message comes through loud and clear but not in an obnoxious manner.

Finally Lia sets off on her own away from Manuel for a change and she also meets Pierre. I hope I’m

A Masterfully Crafted Series

The Starlet Series is the most intricately layered social commentary wrapped in a love story I have read in the coming of age genre.

Starlet’s Light is the 3rd installment in protagonist’s Liana Marie Michael Durglo’s short life. She’s 18, begging for guidance, searching for a reason to endure the pain from Congestive Heart Failure, a consequence of her performance-enhancement drugs used to clutch onto a commercial product’s youth. Although she didn’t choose to take

When I first read the synopsis of The Starlet Series (Starlet's Web, Starlet's Run and Starlet's Light), it sounds really really interesting. This is because it is my first time to stumble on books on a celebrity's life, especially one who is becoming an adult.

When I started with #47 Starlet's Web, I love the starting. However, as I continued reading, I find that the writing style has changed and there's no...whatchamacallit 'Oomph' in the story.

I love the characters but I find the main

I was sent this book from the lovely author Carla Hanna to read and review.

Book Cover: As I have said in past reviews of this series I feel like these covers are very pre-teenish compared to the story's content but the more I have traveled through this series the more they are starting to grow on me. *STAR*

Story: This story keeps me on my toes. It's loaded with love, drama, comedy, and emotion. I laughed and cried during the story line of this book. *STAR*

Author: I really enjoy reading this

What a wonderful coming-of-age series! Each book contains heartfelt insight. Set in Hollywood, STARLET’S WEB shows us what it is like to be a successful, yet very isolated, teen actress. She’s not only hit with betrayal by her mother, but is forced to confront the reality that being ‘in-demand’ and competitive in the movie business means plastic surgery. STARLET’S RUN shows what it is like to fall deeply in love but be 'too young' to commit – especially since everyone around the young couple is ...more

In the 3rd installment of the Starlet’s series, Liana goes to the UK to film a movie and ends up leaving Manuel behind. Liana does this mostly because she feels guilty and does not want her medical issues to hinder the life he could have without dealing with all her problems.

We meet Pierre, the mysterious pen pal who was only mentioned in the two previous books. Liana gets to know Pierre better and thinks they have some chemistry, but she is still confused and does not know where her heart

Amazing read. I just finished this book. Marie and Manny go through a hardship. I don't think Marie is selfish but sometimes she is. I love Manny and Marie together. I hope she gets her happy ending. I highly recommend this series.

This is the third and final installment in the series and we are drawn back into the drama that Liana Marie Michael’s life is. With work taking her to Europe and meeting Pierre one would think that Liana has enough on her plate. Throw in Manuel and her mother’s failing health, Liana is kept on her toes throughout the book.

Liana is off to Wales to shoot for her next big project. This gives her a chance to meet her European friend, Pierre, with whom she has been corresponding for quite some time.
