Blog Tour & GIveaway: Beyond the Stars by Stacy Wise

Audience/Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance.
Publication: February 8th 2016 by Entangled Publishing.
Falling for him wasn't in the plans...

Most girls would kill for the opportunity to work for Jack McAlister, Hollywood's hottest actor, but twenty-one-year-old Jessica Beckett is ready to kick him out of her red Ford Fiesta and never look back. She should be spending her junior year in France, eating pastries and sharpening her foreign language skills. Instead she's reluctantly working as Jack's personal assistant, thanks to her powerhouse talent agent aunt.

Jack is private, prickly, and downright condescending. Jessica pushes his buttons—she's not the type of girl to swoon over celebrity heartthrobs, precisely why her aunt thought she'd be perfect for the job—and Jack pushes right back.

But as she begins to peel away his layers, Jessica is shocked to find she craves her boss's easy smile and sexy blue eyes. The problem is, so does the entire female population. And what started out as the job from hell soon has Jess wondering if a guy like Jack could ever find love with a regular girl like her.


Guest Post: Five reasons dating a Hollywood star is the best/worst.... 


Best:

1.Cake.
What? Cake? you ask. Yes, my darlings. Cake. Feast your eyes on these delightful confections:

First up is Ashley Greene’s birthday cake.
Candy and cake pops and ice cream cones made of frosting! It’s almost too cute to eat. (Almost.)



And here we have Tom Cruise’s 50th birthday cake. It’s ginormous. Imagine the leftovers you could bring home. And eat. (On your sofa in your jammies, no less. See where I’m going with this?)



And the final cake was made for J. Lo.
Um...
Maybe this is a bad example. It’s a bit creepy, no?




2. Trips to Disneyland. Easy explanation: no lines.
3. Famous people know other famous people, so you could potentially meet Jennifer Lawrence or Chris Hemsworth or the guys from One Direction...whoever your faves are!
4. Safety. With all those paparazzi trailing you, would-be muggers are going to steer clear.
5. Exotic vacations. Your sig other must go on location to Bali? Darn, guess you’ll have to tag along. ;)





Worst:
1. That high school yearbook photo you forgot about? The one with the bangs, braces, and the V-neck shirt your mother insisted looked great? The tabloids will find it and plaster it everywhere. Everywhere.
2. Another negative aspect to consider is this: How do you feel about seeing your sig other getting down and dirty, perhaps while nearly nekked, on the big screen? Possibly in 3D. Hello, jealousy!
3. Grooming. Let’s face it, if you’re going to be in the public eye with your famous love, you’ll probably be expected to dress appropriately and appear picture perfect at all times. Get ready for the waxing, buffing, and polishing. (*Note: this could be a positive if you enjoy all that business.)
4. Time alone. Yep, if you can’t join your darling on location, you could be solo for up to three months. Maybe more. (Sigh.)
5. The grocery store. Yes, this mundane errand can be a paparazzi hotspot. So now instead of strolling the aisles at a leisurely pace, debating whether to choose the Oreos or Nutter Butters, you’ll grab the organic granola bars and race to the check out. Such is life.
