Wendy Mann loves her job rescuing celebrities from public relations scrapes. She grew up with nothing, and now she’s drawn to glitz, glamour, and a lighthearted lifestyle. She speaks her mind, so she’s just the tough cookie to tell stars the truth about how other people see them, even when they don’t want to hear it. But after six years at the top of her game, Wendy crosses the line. A star she was sent to save rebels against her and nearly gets her fired. To salvage her job, she must rehabilitate the career of a singing starlet with a penchant for posting inappropriate photos of herself and arguing online with her famous ex. Problem is, the ex is represented by Wendy’s arch nemesis from college, the hot and haughty Daniel Blackstone. And both stars are scheduled for a collision course on national television, broadcast live from Las Vegas.
Daniel’s uneasy when he hears Wendy Mann from his firm’s most hated competitor has been brought in to revive the career of his client’s ex-girlfriend. Daniel must win at any cost. And if he has to seduce Wendy to smooth the way to their partnership, he’s willing to sacrifice himself for the cause. But Daniel doesn’t count on the scorching heat between them—and when they get to Vegas, all bets are off.

Okay, yeah…so it’s an adult book…but sometimes you need a little bit of adult mixed in to your reading materials ifyouknowwhatimsaying.
So I read a lot of adult books actually, I just rarely review them on the blog, but we’re going to make an exception with Star Crossed because (a) it’s by YA authoress extrodinaire Jennifer Echols and (b) I think you guys would really enjoy it.
Maybe the fact that I’ll be in Vegas for a week this month for work played a part in this — VEGAS!!! — but I loved the setting, loved the romance and just completely enjoyed every bit of this story. I’m just a bit sad I’ve read it already because it would be PERFECT reading material on the plane ride there. Drat. Poor planning, Anna. But have no fear: I’m saving you from my sad fate.
Guys, Star Crossed would make the perfect airport/vacation/beach read book. Light, easy, enjoyable. Check it out.
PS: Should I review the grownup books I read? I worry it’d be confusing. Plus, you know, I don’t want to be a bad influence on the children. HAHAHA.
