Synopsis: “Charming, hilarious, and emotional, Starry-Eyed Love is Helena Hunting at her very best!
Having just broken up with her boyfriend, London Spark is not in the mood to be hit on. Especially not when she’s out celebrating her single status with her sisters. So when a very attractive man pays for their drinks and then slips her his number, she passes it right back to him with a ‘thanks, but no thanks’. As the business administrator for their family’s event hotel, the Spark House, London has more important things to worry about, like bringing in new clientele.
As luck would have it, a multi-million-dollar company calls a few months later asking for a meeting to discuss a potential partnership, and London is eager to prove to her sisters, and herself, that she can land this deal. Just when she thinks she has nailed her presentation, the company’s CEO, Jackson Holt, walks in and inserts himself into the meeting. Not only that, but he also happens to be the same guy she turned down at the bar a few months ago.
As they begin to spend more time together, their working relationship blossoms into something more. It isn’t until their professional entanglements are finally over, that London and Jackson are finally ready to take the next step in their relationship. But between Jackson’s secretive past and London’s struggle with her sisters, London must question where she really stands – not just with Jackson, but with the Spark House, too.”
Review: Is it too obvious to say, if you were a fan of When Sparks Fly, you’d be a fan of Starry-Eyed Love? Well, it’s true! Not every book in a series is created equally but this is definitely just as romantic and as fun of a read!
For whatever reason I’ve never been a huge fan of these kinds of series where the story follows another character. I tend to get attached to the first character and just hope for more. However, if I were to have read this book without having read the first one in the series, I would enjoy just as much! As much as I’d prefer long series, I still finished this book in less than five sittings. I’m clearly a sucker for a good romance novel and Helena Hunting provides just that!
As the weather gets warmer, this is the perfect romance to grab and read at the beach! It has some familiar characters, but provides a new plot line, (a fun one if you like the whole ceo trope). This is both exciting and romance-filled and a great quick read.
