Today it’s an honour to be on the blog tour for To the Stars And Back by Camilla Isley
What they say: To the Stars and Back
When Hollywood’s sexiest bachelormeets 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?
The Review: Oh my wordy word! Okay. So to start with let’s take a look at that cover. I could fall into that cover-the colours and the fireworks are THAT beautiful. I have to admit I have gazed at this cover a lot and it most probably is my top so far this year (I will spend an enjoyable evening checking this out to be sure!) So anyhoo back to the book! So this is the story of a heartthrob that has a team of people (well a few anyhoo, and as I get distracted again, let me tell you I really really want to read a story about his assistant!) and ends up hiding from the media and finding a lady in a closet. This lady is Lana, who is hiding in a closet herself after getting a bit of a shock.
I loved the interactions from them at the start, they are worlds apart and it was mesmerising to see how things progressed. I loved the cloak and daggerness of Christian’s life, the fact that he could be bundled into a car at a moment’s notice, and lived for the Notting Hill type moment when the public decided they had a stake in proceedings. I’ll be honest, at times Lana wasn’t fully my cup of tea, but it didn’t hamper any of this, a book I beyond enjoyed that has sent me racing to the author’s back catalogue.
(By the way I read this as a standalone but it’s number four in the series. I have no idea if any of the characters in this book are threaded throughout the rest of the series, but will be heading back to read anyhoo so you might want to go to book 1 first and move along from there. (I certainly intend to!)
