Onto every diva’s backside, a little wood must fall.Lights, Camera, Book 2Hollywood actress Heather Wainwright was looking forward to a long, relaxing break before starting her next shoot. Except her assistant volunteered her for L.A.’s annual 24 Hour Plays.
Nervous about doing a good job for such a worthy charity, Heather falls back on “diva” mode, a defense mechanism that always carries her through. Until she encounters something that really gets on her nerves—a lowly carpenter whose Norse god eyes pierce right through her.
Highly sought-after production designer Seth Rafferty has little patience for A-listers with superior attitudes, which is why his attraction to Heather is absurd. Yet, sensing vulnerability beneath her screen-queen act, he lets her assumptions play out.
After the wrap party, Heather awakens with little memory of the night before—except that Seth gave her the best orgasm of her life, then disappeared. When he shows up on the set of her next movie, she winds up to give him a piece of her mind…and Seth shows her just how stinging hot “chemistry” can get.
Warning: Contains an outwardly snobby actress with a good heart, a delicious carpenter with a power drill, some much-deserved spanking, and an appropriately consensual—if tipsy—orgasm, as well as sex at an inappropriate time of the month.
Laurelin Paige has another best selling book on her hands with Star Struck. This second release in the Lights, Camera series is even more addicting than its predecessor. Star Struck tells the story of Heather, an actress sorely in need of a vacation, but her assistant ends up volunteering her for a charity event. To cover her nervousness, Heather hides behind a fake exterior of haughtiness. Enter Seth Rafferty. Heather believes that he is just a lowly carpenter when he is actually a very popular production designer. As with all couples in Laurelin Paige’s books, the sparks and sexual chemistry are electric and white hot. One thing leads to another and the sex is just as hot as you knew it would be. Seth ends up showing up on the set of her next movie, bringing all his Seth sexiness with him. And then the sparks really fly.
I absolutely adored this book. This is a great read about mistaken impressions and not judging someone by what’s on the outside. Heather and Seth ended up being one of my all time favorite couples. Seth could see beneath Heather’s snobby exterior to the nervous and insecure girl that she really was. And despite Heather’s first impression of Seth, she could see something in the man that attracted her. Both characters saw the best in each other whether they wanted to admit it or not. Being that this is a Laurelin Paige book, you know that there is going to be some kindle melting scenes and the author does not disappoint. These characters practically glowed with all the energy and chemistry between them. Seth is definitely going to have to go in my book boyfriend file.
This is a must read. Sexy, charming, fun, dramatic. I loved it.

About Laurelin: Laurelin Paige is the NY Times and USA Today Bestselling Author of the Fixed Trilogy. She’s a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Mad Men and the Walking Dead, or dreaming of Adam Levine.
