Over one million “likes”—but only one of them matters.
After pop star Ryan De Luna praises Maisy Harrison’s YouTube cover of his classic hit, he offers Maisy and her fledgling band the opportunity of a lifetime: to be his opening act.
Music may be Maisy’s life, but she has one ground rule: never date a musician. That goes double for a heartbreaker like Ryan. If only she didn’t feel so vulnerable to his larger-than-life charm. And maybe now more than ever, when he asks for her help to shake off his playboy image. How can she resist playing the part of his fake girlfriend for the duration of the tour?
Ryan’s never met anyone like Maisy. She sees past all the star-studded fame and treats him like any other guy. And the more time they spend together, the more he finds himself falling for her. Now he’d like to make their imaginary fling an IRL thing. But can he convince her to take a chance and trust him with her heart?
Dragging books is only fun occasionally, but it’s not fun when you got a whole flipping collection of them.
AND I HAVE BEEN DRAGGING BOOKS FOR MOST OF 2019. Except for maybe a few books, and we’ve got more to come because I was busy during Winter Break.
After reading #Starstruck, I had high expectations with #Moonstruck, the second book in Sariah Wilson’s stand-alone #Lovestruck series. So with Sam from Fictionally Sam, we went on buddy reading journey that will eventually end up with our brains being thoroughly fucked within a different book.
I’m disappointed with #Moonstruck. 😥
I loved #Starstruck for the cute yet authentic romance throughout the book, along with a healthy relationship. While we get a healthy relationship in #Moonstruck, I found myself thoroughly disappointed with the sequel.
We’ve got a fake fake relationship, bookwyrms.
And by fake fake, I mean FAKE. It is a fake relationship involved between Ryan and Maisy, it felt fake as well for most of #Moonstruck. And then boom, they’re together, real and true. I feel like I missed something happening because I would have brought a platonic relationship over the relationship here.
Actually, I don’t even think I noticed they had a relationship until the end of the book.
There are some cute and hilarious moments, though.
#Moonstruck is fun to read, regardless. Despite the relationship feeling as fake as my current relationship (which is none at all), I enjoyed reading the sequel a little. I loved reading the interactions between the different characters and they were nicely done, but they weren’t enough for me to buy the romantic relationship.
We’re not going down with this ship.
