*sigh* Christian can be such an idiot but at least he proves himself to be pretty awesome too so I can forgive him … mostly.  Plus, I spent most of the book with a smile on my face so that’s gotta be worth something!

To the Stars and Back

First Comes Love #4

by Camilla Isley

Blurb:

When Hollywood’s sexiest bachelor meets the girl next door their relationship doesn’t follow the script…

On-screen, Christian Slade is America’s favorite heartthrob. Off-screen, letting romance into his life isn’t as easy. The women he dates all seem to want a piece of his glamorous life rather than his heart, and trust doesn’t come easy for him.

Then along comes Lana. A beautiful rocket scientist who’s also sweet, smart, sexy, and has absolutely no idea who he is. But what will happen when she finds out?

Will their worlds prove too far apart or could love really be like in the movies?

Review:

I love the way that these two get together.  It is absolutely a wonderfully meet-cute and Lana is an absolute doll for how she handles some of the things that come afterward.  I’m not sure I could be as forgiving as she is once she finds out who he really is and that he keeps it a secret for a while.  I understand why but … and when he has that REALLY big idiot moment … yeah, she’s a doll.

Isley knows how to craft an entertaining story full of characters that readers can get behind.  Lana may be clueless about all things Hollywood but she’s pretty good at Christian.  It’s a bit of a struggle, coming from two different worlds, but eventually (of course) they figure things out.

Christian also (besides those idiot moments) has moments when he proves just how out of touch with the regular world he is.  But I appreciate that he likes Lana enough to try and he’s got a great support system that likes the real guy, not just what he can do for them.  Although I think they could have maybe tried a little harder to keep him from being SUPER idiotic 🙂

There’s drama – how can there not be in a world like his – but it’s not too far out there and Isley does a good job of bringing it back to center when it’s time.  Fun, funny, and with characters hard not to like, Isley once again delivers an addictive page turner.

(Part of a series but can stand on its own very, very easily.  A few short cameos, and maybe a bit of a feel of Christian, from previous books is about it.)
