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

"She uses her fame as a wall around her heart, and only he can tear it down."


Star Struck is a re-release for Laurelin Paige, but I actually hadn’t read it before. I’ve enjoyed some of her previous books, so when I was given an opportunity to read some of her earlier work I jumped at the chance. I love a great opposites attract story and reading about two different personalities coming together through the common thread of attraction was thoroughly enjoying.

From past experiences I don’t tend

➦This enemies to lovers romance is written in the world of Hollywood. Heather, the heroine is a famous actress and the hero, Seth, is a Production Designer. Except when they meet at a charity event and Heather sees Seth doing carpenter's work, she automatically assumes he is just a carpenter.


➦And most of you are probably thinking, "Nothing wrong with that!" But for Heather, who dug herself out of poverty and into luxury, dating someone beneath her social status is a big no-no. Seth sees right t

This is a re-read for me. Star Struck is getting re-released on July 27th. I originally read it back in 2015 and I loved reading about Seth and Heather again. This is one of my favorite couples. I love, love that the heroine is the Star in this book. So many of the actor romance novels have the Hero as the huge star and the heroine the average everyday person. Although, I will say there is NOTHING average about Seth. He is famous in h

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 ...more

Star Struck by Laurelin Paige is a sexy, funny, and charming Hollywood romance that will leave readers blissfully satisfied. In this enemies to lovers story line, Paige allowed her readers to fall in love with the sexual tension of Seth & Heather as their first interaction with each other did not leave a great first impression. But as these two finally gets to know each other, Paige sets a steamy romance that will have Seth Rafferty s

Another entertaining and provocative must read from Laurelin Paige!

Star Struck was enticing and sexually charged, with an enemies-to-lovers romance that was undeniably HOT! It's stories like this one that makes Laurelin's books one-of-a-kind.

Not only do you get the "I hate you, but want you anyway" aspect from the story, but there are so many hidden and buried emotions that trigger the actions from both Seth and Heather. As much as both characters try to overcome their past, you realize that it'

This was an entertaining and sexy enemies to lovers romance. We first met Heather in Sex Symbol, but we really get to know and see a whole other side to her in Star Struck. A case of mistaken identity between our characters just added to the fun. This book can be read as a stand alone, but some characters do appear in the book Sex Symbol.

I will admit that I was not a huge fan of Heather at the start of this book. It took me a bit to get past the snobbish and cold diva and see the kinder

Since I gravitate towards the first-person point-of-view (POV) format, it takes much more for the third-person POV format to get inside my head...to wow me. The detail must paint such a vivid picture and dialogue must be so abundant to where I'm so lost in the storyline that I forget what voice the story is told in and just become one with the words. Laurelin Paige wrote such a COMPELLING and COMBUSTIBLE story that I was lost in her words, embedded so deeply in Star Struck that I didn't want to

Hollywood actress and notorious Diva, Heather Wainwright, is not going to date a blue collar carpenter. She worked too long and too hard to date someone "beneath" her. Seth Rafferty doesn’t date actresses, but he can’t help but be attracted to the beautiful actress he met at a charity fundraiser. Seth doesn’t want snobby Heather to know his real job, and lets her believe what she wants. Heather and Seth are keeping secrets.

From Fixed On You Trilogy and now the Lights, Camera series, Miss Laurelin Paige writes stories that you can somehow “relate” to and enjoy reading like you are one of the characters in her books.

Star Struck was an amusing, enjoyable read from the author. It’s the story of Heather and Seth and the hilariously sweet and romantic development of their attraction to each other.

Star Struck is a reissue of one of Laurelin Paige’s first books, but you can’t tell. There was some re-editing done, and while I had read this book previously, there wasn’t really anything that stood out as a major change in the story.

Laurelin is a favorite of mine, because of books like this. The story is so good, so perfect, and grips you so completely, you are not able to put it down. You don’t want to put it down. You want to know what happens next, and then

I'm so lucky I've got to read 2 LP books this month. Star Struck is the second book (written as a standalone) in the Lights, Camera series and has also received a make over.

If you look up 'Diva' in the dictionary, there will be Heather Wainwright pouting right back at you. She's bigger and better than anyone else including 'the help' Seth Rafferty. It's a good fun read, plenty of pages of witty banter. There is more to both characters than meets the eye, walls are made to be broken, and they bot

I really liked Seth and Heather story. They are opposites, but also have incredible chemistry together. The one they can not resist.

Heather Wainwright is a actress. Really snobby diva, who looks at people from above. She thinks that Seth Rafferty is a carpenter, but he is a famous designer and he is really tired of the type of women like her. But one night, after a lot of drinking they ended up in bed together. And there were a lot of spark.

Heather is a little annoying, but Seth is a really grea

This is such a fun, sweet story. Oh my gosh, I loved it.

Seth is absolutely amazing! And oh my, he is hot, hot, hot. But alas, he is merely a carpenter and Hollywood actress Heather Wainwright would never be caught with a member of the crew.

Seth is determined to make Heather see him for who he is. Their chemistry is stifling and intense. He sees Heather’s vulnerability and the person who she really is outside of the Hollywood diva and snobby persona she exudes to the public. He’s insistent that h

The Tool Boy and the Famous Actress will they be able to find a happily ever after or is the Diva Actress too high and mighty to fall for the Carpenter?!?!? I loved this Hollywood coupling and how the book centered around themselves and their drama. It's definitely not your typical Hollywood Starlet Romance.

My fingers could not turn the pages fast enough on this hot book!!! I found Seth very easy to fall in love with... Heather took me a little longer to love, but once her sky high walls came down and I got to see the "real" Heather I was all in! This book was so down to earth and the broken pasts were so easy to relate to! True love always wins and was proven in this book. Laurelin has done it again! Loved this story of Seth and Heather! A must read!

What happens when you allow perceptions and stubbornness to get in your way? This is exactly what happens in Star Struck.  Heather Wainwright is a high profile actress who comes from the wrong side of the tracks and fears being branded ‘White Trash’. Seth Rafferty is a humble and giving Production Designer who also was raised on the poorer side of life.  Only he doesn’t see it as a secret to hide and be ashamed of. Emotions run high in the first

What happens when a Hollywood starlet misjudges someone and lets her snobbish ways come out, and a high powered production designer who feels the need to put her in her place? This book, Star Struck, is what happens!

Hollywood meets the tool guy! What a concept here,
I loved this story the minute I started reading it.
I thought I wasn't going to like the heroine, but I did, I liked everything she stood for. Yes she was a little stuck up and snobby,
Yes she was a little *itchy. She had her reasons. I think we all have something about where we came from that is a little bothersome r embarrassing. Not everyone is proud of where they came from.
