Star Struck, a sexy, standalone from New York Times Bestseller Laurelin Paige is live!
She uses her fame as a wall around her heart, and only he can tear it down.
Seth Rafferty knows Heather Wainwright’s type.
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 dozen.
Which is why his obsession with Heather makes no sense. Nothing about her is attractive.
Except the vulnerability under the sass. The honesty under the attitude.
So when wrap-party flirting gets carried away, Seth doesn’t stop it from turning into a sizzling night of passion. Too late, he realizes, one night isn’t going to get her out of his system.
On to plan B: uncover the real woman under the diva.
Soon Heather will find out that Seth isn’t just a simple carpenter she can use and lose without consequences. He’ll play the part of the builder, but it’s her walls he intends to break down.

The true definition of star struck is being “captivated” or “completely overawed” by someone’s celebrity status. The irony of that word when it comes to the hero and heroine’s initial interactions and relationship in Laurelin Pagie’s latest release, Star Struck, is that the only feelings that Seth Rafferty has for Hollywood diva, Heather Wainwright, are ones that prove just how underwhelmed he is being in the presence of such a pretentious bitch!
Heather has lived her life singularly focused on making herself a star and proving to herself and to her parents that she can accomplish anything she sets her mind to, regardless of who she has to step on in her rise to stardom. Heather’s determination, though, makes her appear to be a vain, bitchy, and high maintenance actress – one who never lets her guard down or stops acting like the mega witch she seems to be because the risk of letting anyone past her walls is too great a risk, at least that’s what her life has shown her for more years than she cares to count.
But interestingly enough, the woman Heather is beneath her movie star mask is the woman Seth’s intrigued with, and she’s also the one he’s willing to wade through the bullshit that seems to surround Heather’s life. The only problem is getting Heather to let her guard down long enough to prove to Seth that she’s way more than what she appears and that undoubtedly his first impression only scratched the surface of the woman behind the prima donna facade.
Contrary to their rocky start, Seth is perfect for Heather. He sees past her smokescreen and doesn’t give into her neuroses. His past was just as bad as Heather’s was, but the way he chose to not be defined by what he lived through is much different than how Heather dealt with it. Seth is a strong, intelligent, successful man who loves the work he does. He’s been burned by love before, so the feelings he has for Heather make him feel quite conflicted. He wants her, but he doesn’t want to, at least at first, and because of his inaccurate first impression, their relationship starts off with a lie, but as Heather’s defense mechanism is lowered by Seth’s caring ways, how can he reveal the truth without fearing losing what they’ve slowly built?
Star Struck is a fun and sexy read. The interaction between the main characters is full of sexual tension, attitude, and angst. I loved witnessing Heather’s transformation from diva to someone who rose above her past and became a better person for it. I’m sure some readers will form the same opinion of Heather that Seth did and that view might stay with them even after Heather begins to change her attitude and her ways, but Laurelin Paige perfectly illustrates who Heather was before Seth came into her life and who she is now that he’s destroyed her walls and revealed the beautiful, loving, fun, and somewhat dramatic woman that she’s always hid beneath her carefully constructed layers.
Readers can’t go wrong with this steamy and intriguing read, and Seth Rafferty will definitely have readers star struck!
