Book one of the “Love in LA” Quartet

*** This is a Reverse Harem Novel ***

One woman. Three men. Some things are best kept secret.

When Creslyn Knight auditions for the role of a life time, she never expects three things:

1. To know the casting director—intimately.
2. To be insanely attracted to the three stand-in actors at the audition.
3. That she’d soo

Mhmm, It's kinda RH BUT not really at least it didn't really feel like one.

In the beginning it had a RH feel to it but ULTIMATELY it ends with a final couple, and the other men in the harem are left as just friends. Which is honestly really weird.
But I guess you could say it is RH just for the beginning 70% of the book. BUT it really depends on who you ask/who answers.

RH being used as a plot device, I can definitely see that now that you mentioned it.

I feel like this is a beginners sample at RH, with a duet romance at the end, what i mean by that is if someone is trying RH for the first time they wont be totally turned off by it? Not sure if that's a good explanation but... *shrug*(less)

I finally popped my RH (Reverse Harem) cherry and I gotta say it was way less painful than the first time around when my husband did it. (TMI, I'm sorry 🙈) but seriously I didn't even know about this genre of books and I wasn't really sure if it would be something I enjoyed but WOW the way Colleen eased me into these unconventional relationships has me changing m

Oooh mah gawd! This was sooo hot!

The Stars in Her Eyes by C.M. Albert is definitely a one day read, I was hooked instantly, and I'm sure you'll be too!

Although this was different and not exactly what I was expecting. I love RH but this one didn't really feel like one. I felt that it was something a bit different to that. Unlike most RH books, this one led to a final couple, with the other men that she had been interested in left as just friends; which was kinda weird to me

Having read and liked another book by the author before, I was definitely intrigued with her new Love in LA Quartet series. From the synopsis to the cover, The Stars in Her Eyes had me hooked and it don’t disappoint at all. In this particular story we get to meet Creslyn Knight, an actress who is auditioning for the role of a life time in the leading role for a post-apocalyptic reverse-harem spin on Shakespeare’s play The Two Gentleman of

Well, smack my ass and call my Suzie, this book, was just WOW! I am still gobsmacked after reading this sinfully beautiful story. Honestly, I did not read the blurb on this book, I just started reading with an open mind. My expectations were blown out of the water.

Creslyn is a strong, enticing leading lady. She's a Hollywood starlet with a rising career, but she has one goal in mind, landing the role of Suri. this would elevate her career to new heights. During the casting auditions the directo

Well how do I start from the beginning to the end of this I was in awe of Colleen Albert’s Writing ,you actually feel like you are Creslyn the main Character and the story just gets Hot and Hotter.There are some twists and turns but that’s what keeps the story going . Her characters literally blew me away I loved each one of the 3 guys in her story , a lot of intense moments,a lot of sexy scenes and a lot of steamy sex,,Can’t wait to read other books from this box set, 5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Oh my heart...the tears...allll the feels
This book had everything I didn’t know I needed. The passion, the laughter, the depth of the characters that I have come to love... I cannot wait for the rest of the series.

All I really knew going in was “LA actress, reverse harem.” But it’s soooo much more than that. It’s...everything!!

The Stars in Her Eyes has to be the hottest book I’ve ever read. I’m seriously shocked it didn’t set itself on fire. It’s the first CM Albert book I’ve re

I really enjoyed this book. Might even be closer to 4.5 stars instead of just 4 stars. Most of the time you see the reverse harem books they seem to be fantasy or science fiction. As I'm not a big fan of those types of romances, I am glad to see more and more that are contemporary, or at least more that I'm having brought to my attention. While there was a bit of what seemed pretty quick emotion-wise, really it ended up being more realistic that I was afraid it would be. I liked that the story ...more

Rating 3.5/5

This book is exceptionally steamy like you might want to read it totally alone and not in a public place kind of steamy. From the start, there is a lot of sexual tension between Creslyn and quite a few different people, and it kind of stays like that throughout the whole book.

I definitely liked the three men vying for Creslyn’s attention, I certainly wouldn’t say no to any of them, they were each individual and had different personality traits that they brought to the mix. Even thoug

This book is quite hot. The storyline was quite different from what I generally read. I was concerned about the book being about all sex but as I got into the book there was a storyline emerging. The book is very intense and quite graphic. But the men involved are quite sexy. My favourite is River as he is involved in playing the cello. It brings images of two hot guys that play cellos in real life. I absolutely adore CM Albert as a writer she has written in several genres and can make them her ...more

Steamy! I've volunteered to review this book for United Indie Book Blog. This is my first time reading one of C.M. Albert books. Creslyn is a strong, enticing leading lady. Knox, River and Matias are stand ins for her first audition. There is INSTANT chemistry between the four of them. Each of them brings something different to the story. This book is beyond steamy, VERY SEXY, sometimes sweet, and left me wanting to read more and more. If you love reading about reverse Harem, then this is the PE ...more

I cannot rave enough about how wonderful this book was. Just a gorgeous story with tons of chemistry and heart. The characters leap from the pages, the relationship between them just electric and REAL. You feel it all. It's not over the top, as many other reverse harem stories are. It was just lovely and perfect. Highly recommend.

I’m all hot and bothered by this.....

....but in a way that left me truly satisfied! This book is beyond steamy, VERY SEXY, sometimes sweet, and left me wanting to read more and more. This story took me THERE....someplace I never even imagined in my oh-so-sheltered life. I truly loved living vicariously through Creslyn’s exploits...and YES, I fell for each and every one of the delicious men throughout the story. I CAN NOT WAIT to read the rest of the series! Get writing C.M. Albert!

Yes, this book is steamer than anything I think I've read in a long time. But there is so much more to it than that.

There is the bond of true friendship that will stand the test of time, even through all the hardships. There is scandal, and family drama and seeing what drives people to do what they do. Yes, there is chemistry, but there is also that deeper connection you find with that one special someone; the "one extra yummy flavor".

I read this book as part of the Forbidden Desires anthology. It is definitely one of the best books in the collection. It was well written and had characters that I wanted to learn more about. I will definitely read more books by this author.

Such a great book. Once you buy don't plan on moving from the spot your at, I was hooked by page 1. 3 guys, 1girl. Reverse Harem like you've never read before!

If you love steamy scenes, this book is for you!

And you definitely don’t have to wait for it. From the first few chapters, we dive into a girl’s life as she is heading into the world of acting. Along the way, she comes across a group of guys who are not only best friends but who also may help her find a little more romance then she expected.

As you could tell from above, this is a reverse harem book, and if you’re unfamiliar with this term, it just means the main character is romantically involve

4 STAR Review by Jodi for Ruby Red Romance Review

I must start out by saying I'm a big fan of reverse harem books. I love the concept. The idea of having more than one person to share a relationship with is exciting and intriguing. That being said, I would never what that kind of relationship, but they are fun to read about. C.M. Albert did an amazing job with this story. I loved each and every character in this story. I loved getting to know them on what felt like a personal level. This book is

This is one smoking hot book! From start to finish C. M. Albert had me totally engaged as I followed the story of Creslyn Knight and her 3 Men. While there were simultaneous relationships with the characters throughout the book, each wanted what was the best and would make Creslyn the happiest. They helped her develop and grow as an actress and woman. She also taught her men a thing or two. Can’t wait for the next books. I know C.M. Albert will deliver and sure to please.

The Stars in Her Eyes is a good read. Creslyn is an actress. She's strong character who may act a little impulsive at times. There's something about her that makes her very attractive to men, I felt like almost ever guy in the story wanted her at some point. She's trying out for a part that has a reverse harem theme but she needs to prove that she has the chemistry to pull it off.
Knox, Matías, and River are more then happy to help her. These guys are best friends but they are each a little diff

I loved that this was more than a reverse harms, only sex book. It was deeper and the relationships were too. It was still sexy and steamy, but had so much more to it to keep you interested. Each of the guys in the Brotherhood were awesome in there own way too. I’m excited to see what happens after the way the end of the book ended. Glad there’s more books!

OMG never thought I'd read a harem, actually until this book I'd never really understood the meaning of the word harem lol.

So much fire and passion. I struggled to put it down, sleeping is overrated anyway, right?

I love how all the characters had their own stories and each brought something new to their relationship/s.

Parts had me on the edge of my seat. Others had me upset for her and her broken relationship with her mother and all that went along with it. Especially the cliff

While this book was billed as a reverse harem, personally, I felt that it was something a little bit different to that. Yes, there were plenty of scenes involving our lead character and two or three of the men that she was interested in. Unlike most reverse harem books, this one led to a final couple, with the other men that she had been interested in left as just friends. The storyline dealt not only with the relationships between all four of the main characters (and a couple of other male char ...more

Hands down, this is the hottest book I’ve ever read. I’ve read a lot of sexy books. Hell, I write sexy books of my own for a living. But C.M. Albert has a talent here most don’t posses. So believable and well written, I almost felt like some voyeur, sitting in the corner of the room watching these four (YES FOUR!) get down and dirty. Do not read this unless you have a cold shower or your partner handy 😉

But while the sex scenes are plentiful and off the charts in terms of heat, don’t let that foo

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book.

You;ll be shocked with me, when I tell you about this one, you really will!

I had HIGH hopes for this, especially after I had read The White Room by the same author, but for ME, it really fell kinda flat and I have no idea why!

Creslyn wants the role of Suri, in a big production movie, with three co stars, three male co stars, who she falls in love with. Knox, River and Matias are stand ins for her first audition. There

I was really disappointed in this book because it was advertised at RH and even had the words “reverse harem romance” in the blurb. This was false advertising and would let down anyone expecting an actually RH where the MC does not choose in the end. The fact that she chose one boy at the end bothered me but it also bothered me that there wasn’t much hint of her choosing. There may have been a hint or two but it wasn’t that obvious. Maybe I’m misinterpreting what R
