Nicole Callahan is an up-and-coming movie star. When she gets her big chance, the role requires her to get romantic with her co-star on screen. But there’s only one man she can picture herself kissing…even if she’s never met him in person.
Austin Hayes has been a household name since he hit it big as a child actor. His refusal to so much as kiss a woman on screen hasn’t stopped him from having a successful career in Hollywood. But when Nicole wants him as her co-star, he throws all the rules out the window because this starlet is meant to be his
He’d give her everything.
“I don’t want to scare you, baby, but I think it’s important to be honest with you,” I start, choosing my words carefully. “You’re the only reason I accepted this role.”
I’ve been loving these Fiona Davenport books. The novel tells a story about Nicole who gets an opportunity to get a big movie role. She knows she can’t do it unless her co-star will be her long time crush Austin Hayes.
Austin is a hopeless romantic and he has a rule against kissing anyone besides his woman. Austin knows the moment he hears her description and sees her picture that he wants Nicole. I love how he decided to not even kiss anyone before he meets “the one” for him and then becomes very possessive about Nicole.
“I really wish I could think of something bigger than the universe because there’s nothing sexier than a guy who puts his woman first.”
Starlet is a short book but I really enjoyed the romance between Nicole and Austin. I don’t know why but possessive men are my weakness in romance. That’s probably why I dislike when male characters do “The Angel- move” aka leaving women for their own good. Instead of just taking the big role she knows what she wants and decides to go for it in the danger of missing her opportunity.
