The Starstruck Series #2
by Susannah Nix
The second he walked through the door, she could tell he was trouble.
Grace knows better than to fall for a Hollywood bad boy like Scott Deacon. An arrogant movie star with a troubled past and a big honking chip on his shoulder? No, thank you. He may be sex on wheels, but beneath the charming facade he’s just another cocky jackass destined to make her job more difficult.
The more time they spend together, the hotter the fire between them burns. With every flirtatious smile and brush of his hand, she feels her defenses crumbling.
She wants to hate him, but instead she’s in danger of losing all control.

You know...there are just some authors that make me so happy to see that they have a new book coming out. Tessa Dare. Sarah J. Maas. Kristen Callihan. Stephen King. Etc.
And one of those authors is Susannah Nix.
Nix knows how to write my favorite heroines and heroes. They are flawed and real. If you haven't taken a look at her Chemistry Lessons series - you are truly doing yourself a disservice.
With that said, the Starstruck series follows through with Nix's flawed characters. My absolute favorite so far is the first in the series, Rising Star, for its adorable friends to lovers dynamic.
Fallen Star takes what we grew to love in Rising Star and throws it on itself. Instead of a sweet hero learning his way, we get a hero who has been to hell and back due to his addictions and past. Scott is labeled as a bad boy, but what Nix's writing reminds us (and the story's heroine, Grace) is that there is a person lying underneath that label. So much happens in this story that you can't really pinpoint it as an enemies to lovers, friends to lovers, etc. It doesn't need a label really because what the story teaches its reader is that labels do not matter. We are more than our labels.
The story that unfolds between Scott and Grace is one of understanding, fear, and learning to be brave. This is truly a love story that is honest about how imperfect love can be, and how it makes the characters (and us) better because of it.
I recommend this story to everyone who loves romance, and for those on the fringes of wondering about romance. Romance is more than the "cheesy" covers with naked people - romance is emotion and empathy. Romance is so much more.

When she’s not writing, Susannah enjoys reading, cooking, knitting, watching too much television, and getting distracted by Tumblr. She is also a powerlifter who can deadlift as much as Captain America weighs.
