Blog Tour: Stars Collide (Review)

Kat Jennings and Scott Murphy don't just play two people who are secretly in love on a television sitcom--they are actually head over heels for each other in real life. 

When the lines between reality and TV land blur, they hope they can keep their relationship under wraps. 

But when Kat's grandmother, an eccentric star from Hollywood's golden age, mistakes their on-screen wedding proposal for the real deal, things begin to spiral out of control. 

Will their secret be front-page news in the tabloids? And can their budding romance survive the onslaught of paparazzi, wedding preparations, and misinformed family members?

What I Thought
I'm not sure if it's the subject or the author's writing style, but this book is "comfortable" - kind of like a nice pair of slippers.

It's not deep, and it's not extensive - but it's a fun, easy read that has a bit of old-fashioned romance, set in the midst of Hollywood.

I enjoyed reading it. I'll admit, at times, the storyline was well, a bit predictable. But let's face it, sometimes you just want to read something light and fun, even if you can probably guess at times, what's going to happen.

Light, fun and a bit eccentric at times, Stars Collide will give you a good book to grab to sit by the pool (or in my case, wrapped up in a blanket on a cold snowy day).

On a scale of one to five, with five being the highest, I give this book a solid three. It's the first book in Thompson's new Backstage Pass series, and if the rest are this much fun, they will be definitely worth checking out.
