"Stars Collide" by Janice Thompson

About this book:

  “Her future's so bright, she's gotta wear shades
  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?
  From the soundstage to a Beverly Hills mansion to the gleaming Pacific Ocean,
Stars Collide takes you on a roller-coaster tour of Hollywood, packing both comedic punch and tender emotion.”

My personal Rating-
This book was actually one of the very first books I ever read by Janice Thompson back in 2013. I really enjoyed this novel over five years ago and it’s been on my re-reading TBR list for more than a bit now.
While it had more barely-above-not-detailed kisses than I remembered, I still really enjoyed my re-reading of “Stars Collide” and cannot wait to finish my re-reading of the rest of the series. :)

See y’all on Monday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
