My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rising Star was a great 5 star read and book one in the Starstruck Series.

Alice has been asked to move out but she’s been dodging her roomie, now that she’s a third wheel he wants her out. She hasn’t had any luck finding a new place. She is working as an extra on a tv set.

Griffin is an actor on the show that Alice is an extra for. Now that the show is coming to an end he has to start looking at other options for his career. He has to work in Atlanta for a few months and gets news that he no longer has a dog sitter.

While talking to Alice, Griffin comes up with a great idea to have her live at his house to house/dog sit for him. Alice is a little leary at first because of something that happened to her in the past, but finally agrees.

As Griffin and Alice spend time together the closer they seem to get. Could there be more for them?

There is so much to this great read. We see what can happen to celebrities and tabloids and just what a mess they can cause. We learn more about Alice’s issue with a professor. All of the secondary characters added a great element to the story. And I loved Taco. If you’re looking for a great read than I suggest you 1-click and get started today. I look forward to reading more from this author.

Alice Carlisle has problems.

Her sociology Ph.D. dissertation is going nowhere, she’s about to lose the TV extra job that’s been paying her bills, and her roommate is kicking her out. She needs to find a new place to live ASAP, so she can focus on finally finishing her doctorate.

Enter Griffin, one of Hollywood’s rising stars, who offers to let her move into his guest room if she’ll dog sit for him. Four months rent free in a nice house with an adorable dog is an offer Alice can’t turn down—even if she has major qualms about her movie star roommate.

Griffin Beach has it all.

He’s gorgeous, newly jacked, and poised to make the leap from TV show regular to box office superstar. Until his dog sitter bails, leaving him desperate to find someone he trusts to look after his precious fur baby.

Someone like Alice, the extra who’s never seemed to like him but loves his dog. Griffin has his doubts about the arrangement, but living with Alice opens his eyes to how empty his workaholic lifestyle has become. The more time they spend together, the more he realizes she might be exactly what he needs in his life.

Can Alice let her guard down and learn to trust again? Can Griffin stop trying to please everyone else long enough to show her how he feels? Will they get their Hollywood happy ending? Or will their love story bomb at the box office?
