Beyond the Stars
By: Stacy Wise
Release Date: February 8, 2016
Falling for him wasn't in the plans...
Most girls would kill for the opportunity to work for Jack McAlister, Hollywood’s hottest actor, but twenty-one-year-old Jessica Beckett is ready to kick him out of her red Ford Fiesta and never look back. She should be spending her junior year in France, eating pastries and sharpening her foreign language skills. Instead she’s reluctantly working as Jack’s personal assistant, thanks to her powerhouse talent agent aunt.
Jack is private, prickly, and downright condescending. Jessica pushes his buttons—she’s not the type of girl to swoon over celebrity heartthrobs, precisely why her aunt thought she’d be perfect for the job—and Jack pushes right back.
But as she begins to peel away his layers, Jessica is shocked to find she craves her boss’s easy smile and sexy blue eyes. The problem is, so does the entire female population. And what started out as the job from hell soon has Jess wondering if a guy like Jack could ever find love with a regular girl like her.
This book made me smile from side to side, oh to know a movie star and become his assistant. Sigh, while looking off wistfully in the distance of my hopeful dreams. He he! This book was beyond adorable for its content and characters but I couldn’t help feeling that they were younger than they were supposed to be. All innocence and sweetness surrounded by movie star magic, Stacy Wise did a great job on this book.
We meet Jessica, who’s already familiar with the entertainment industry so working for someone big doesn’t faze her. But then she meets him and even though they get off on a rocky start, looks can be deceiving and sometimes you really can’t believe everything you read and see. Especially when it comes to Jack McAlister who is beyond sweet and adorable in this book. Sure he has his actor drama moments, but he had his reasons.
There are some really cute scenes throughout this book and the imagery of the talked about food and Jack’s house sounds absolutely amazing and like a dream. All of it seems like a dream, but a very good one with a very sweet ending. It’s almost too good to be true though but alas this is why I love books because in their world things like this can actually happen. I feel as though Jessica learns a lot throughout this book in regards to who she can and cannot trust, it’s crazy how you are so blind to what is in front of you the whole time because you are giving people the benefit of the doubt. But lessons are learned and karma will come around, I just know it.
Overall the book was great, quick and easy fast read that I didn’t want to put down until I was done. The cover is very sweet like the book and I would pick it up to check it out. The story was sweet and there was barely any seriously intense scenes in this book in regards to getting it on, which sometimes is refreshing depending on the book you are reading. I loved it though and I would read it again and anything else by Stacy Wise and of course recommend it to you as well. Go read it, it was a fun read. Perfect for these cold winter nights that are upon us.
Oh and before I leave can I just say how much I want a pet pig now ….
