BLURB

I don’t go for bad boys, or rockers.
And I don’t believe in love at first sight.
Until I see Beckett.
And things only get worse when I hear him sing.
There is no one like him.
The problem is that he wants nothing to do with me.
And I know I should stay away from him.
It’s the smart thing to do.
Only when it comes to Beckett I don’t want to do the smart thing. He makes me want to take a risk.
I just hope he decides to take a risk on me too.

My Review


Star Struck by Amber Garza
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! amazing read! so heartfelt and full of longing. I really enjoyed this book it speaks to the romantic in everyone I think. The storyline was tortuous and poetic, as only a story about musicians should be.

Star wa a great character full of life and innocence but at the same time fire and passion. Her singing comes to new highs and lows again and again. She is frustrated by Beckett and his constant back and forth signals but loves being in his presence, because she knows he has what it takes not only to win her heart but to be a star.

Beckett is the embodiment of the tortured artist. His character was great! He hasn't had the easiest life up until now and it shows in his songs. He constantly fights with himself about his feelings for music and his feelings for Star, forever beating himself up for even looking her way. I loved that we got to see a bit of his softer side and he quickly became my favourite character, but mostly I think because he reminded me so much of my husband who is a musician and is very moody as well.

Even though I loved the story I found that the other characters were put into the background a little and I would have liked to learn a little bit more about them. That being said I think that Amber Garza is a totally brilliant author and I would read any of her work anytime! if you haven't read this amazing work then I suggest you get your copy today!
