Tour & GIveaway: #Starstruck (#Lovestruck #1) by Sariah Wilson

#Starstruck (#Lovestruck #1) by Sariah Wilson.
Audience/Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance.
Publication: January 16th 2018 by Montlake Romance.
“You’ve done better.”

With one uncharacteristically sassy tweet to her longtime celebrity crush, Zoe Miller’s life turns upside down. Ultrahot A-lister Chase Covington doesn’t just respond to Zoe’s tweet, he does the unthinkable: he messages Zoe directly. Now she must decide between walking away or meeting her crush in person.

Chase knows better than to trust anyone from the Internet, but Zoe’s saucy challenge has totally caught his interest—and her girl-next-door personality is keeping it. He’s been burned enough to know he needs to keep his heart close. But his feelings for Zoe might be a lot more than just an online flirtation. He just has to convince her…

When the press gets wind of Zoe and Chase’s secret relationship, their romance turns into tabloid headlines. Will they be able to hold on to their Hollywood love story?

A few beats passed before he said, “I make you nervous, don’t I?”

Uh, understatement of the year. But his movie star ego didn’t need to hear it. “I’m…I’m not nervous.”

He started moving fractionally closer to me, one small movement with each loud, slow thud of my heart. “I don’t normally make girls nervous. Excited, yes. Overwhelmed. Shocked. Up for anything, usually. But not nervous.” This time he did touch me, his fingers tucking back some stray hairs behind my ears. I closed my eyes and dragged in a sharp breath. All those sensations…I totally got the overwhelmed reaction. And the excited and shocked thing.

And possibly even the up for anything impulse.

I opened my eyes and tried to deny it, but now Chase stood directly in front of me, his heat warming me, pulling me in. He put his hands against the counter, on either side of me.

He’d trapped me.

“I think I know why I make you nervous.”

“I told you, I’m not nervous.”

A playful smile lit up his entire face. “Like I said, you’re a terrible liar.” He focused his gaze on my lips. His head ducked down toward mine. We were almost touching. So close, but not enough. I put my right hand on his chest, but whether it was to stop him or pull him closer, I didn’t know.

It was like a scene out of my favorite movie, complete with my favorite movie star.

His lips hovered above mine, his slow, steady breaths a huge contrast to my short, shallow ones as they washed over my face. “Zoe.” Chase whispered my name, and it sounded both like a question and a promise. It made my knees buckle, my stomach tighten and my pulse explode

Reviewed by Kelly.

I had a huge grin on my face when I finished this book! It was so so adorable! I loved the characters. They are all human with human flaws and how we learn to deal with them and the mistakes we make with them and learning to talk things out! And lots of laughing too! I mean really really lots of giggles and funny texts on twitter!

I loved how the main character, Zoe, wanted to be “celibate” until she got married, and how this hollywood star respected her enough that he honored that. Now what I really liked was how the book addressed how hard that was and what they did to make sure that it stayed that way. Sometimes, I was laughing hysterically over it! Other times, I saw where temptation was difficult and she wanted to give in but he was the one to stop it!

“I don’t get why you would deliberately place those kinds of restrictions on yourself. Don’t you want to be free to do whatever you want?”
“I feel very free. I’ve never been worried about missing a period. I’ve never worried about contracting a sexually transmitted disease. I’ve never shared something so personal with a man and then had my heart broken when he didn’t call me again.” She was undeterred.
“But don’t you think it’s important as a woman to understand that part of yourself?” I shrugged one shoulder.
“I guess I reject the notion that whether or not I do it is the most important thing about me. That my sense of self and value should be tied up solely in that one act.”

I loved Zoe’s family, especially ZoZo’s littlest sister. She loved Cheese (or Chase as the world knows him) and she was a flirt with him! All of Zoe’s siblings names started with a Z. All of Zoe’s siblings liked Chase too!

Chase was a good actor. But he has some flaws that the world didn’t know about and he shared them with Zoe. He liked Zoe because she was just an ordinary person who didn’t want anything from Chase and she was who she was! Chase had issues with marriage though and Zoe didn’t think this could go anywhere if he didn’t believe in it.

If you like stories about keeping your standards, being honest, trusting someone, laughing, family, dysfunctional families, hollywood, finding someone who values all of you, texts, tweets, cookies, Disney, picnics, going to the beach, then this might be for you! As for me, I am going to go read it again!

Bestselling author Sariah Wilson has never jumped out of an airplane or climbed Mount Everest, and she is not a former CIA operative. She has, however, been madly, passionately in love with her soul mate and is a fervent believer in happily ever afters—which is why she writes romances like The Royals of Monterra series. After growing up in Southern California as the oldest of nine (yes, nine) children, she graduated from Brigham Young University with a semiuseless degree in history. She currently lives with the aforementioned soul mate and their four children in Utah, along with three tiger barb fish, a cat named Tiger, and a recently departed hamster who is buried in the backyard (and has nothing at all to do with tigers).
