Book Description

A sassy bookstore manager is pursued by a famous actor in this outrageous, funny, romantic book series.

Peaches Monroe is a curvy young woman who always speaks her mind. She's working in her small town bookstore when a handsome dark-haired man comes running in, hiding from reporters.

He's Dalton Deangelo, a sexy actor who plays a vampire on a popular TV series. He's got a million-dollar grin, and a body to match. Within minutes of meeting, Peaches and Dalton have undeniable chemistry.

She thinks he's just a Hollywood playboy after another conquest. He thinks she's the cutest, funniest, smartest girl he's ever met.

Sparks fly in this very funny contemporary romance series.

5.0 out of 5 stars HOT & HILARIOUS! July 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The best way to describe this book is HOT & HILARIOUS!
There have been a few books that I've read that the heroine is "normal", not stick thin and beautiful beyond words- I LOVE these kinds of books it helps me relate the the heroine on a whole other level.
Peaches is normal, chunky, thick however you want to say it she has insecurities just like the rest of us. Peaches however does have self confidence, when she isn't letting her insecurities get in the way. She is out spoken and Hilarious. Dalton sweeps her off her feet and Peaches has to fight the naysayers around her that Dalton isn't was he seems to be. Things start changing for Peaches for the good and just as she starts this new journey something brings her to halt. Lots of Fabulous crazy sex.
Cliff hanger ending but well worth any cuss words I was flinging because I wanted more now.


"My ladyflower received the signal and blossomed in anticipation."

"Mamma mia! His soldier was trying to make a jail break, out of his waistband."

"I'm going to use my mouth on your belly button like it's a single-serve pudding snack and I don't have a spoon."

"my runway was wet and ready for him to land his big plane. Woohoo, down here, Mr. Pilot! Get ready for splashdown!"

"He ran his fingers up and down, moving farther with each stroke, all the way down my coin slot and into my piggy bank."

4.0 out of 5 stars Great summer read July 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a funny, enjoyable, light read, especially the antics of the main female character, Peaches. She is a self proclaimed fat girl, living in a small town, who has a TV star, Dalton Deangelo, literally run into her while he is in town filming a movie. This plot line is used in many other books, including Love Unscripted by Tina Reber, which is one of my favorite recently released romance books. Stardust differs in that it has lots of funny one-liners from Peaches, such as when a pesky reporter comes into the bookstore where she works looking for Dalton, Peaches says, " The novels probably have too many words for you, but we do have some nice coffee table books." Overall, unlike Love Unscripted, this book has the famous man wanting to go to a wedding with the heroine right away, on the first night they meet, which I found to be a bit much. Really, even non-famous men don't want to go meet a girls' family at a wedding when they first met. The story continues with dates, steamy sex scenes, one-liners, and such until it comes to a very dramatic cliff hanger that I totally did not expect.

All in all, I found it an amusing book and I recommend it if you are looking for something light to read while at the beach or on vacation this summer. It is relatively short at 236 pages.

Stardust can be found on Amazon and other places. When I bought it, the cost was $3.99.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars OMG, Hilarious August 8, 2013
From Reading and Writing Urban Fantasy, Paranormal, and Romance

At A Glance
It's not the most perfect book but for me personally, it took my breath away.

The Good
Just so you know Stardust was formally known as We Are Made of Stardust, which I did a giveaway on a couple weeks ago. I am going with the title and cover that is current on the author's website, but they are the same book.

I have a weird, sometimes dirty sense of humor and that's why this book was so great for me. It just fit who I am and what I think is funny. It may not be for everyone, but I think most people will see the specialness this book holds.

Stardust is the type of book where you sit dumbfounded, thinking No, she didn't just say that, did she? No, he didn't just do that, did he? It's like the roughest contemporary romance I have ever read when it comes to sex, language, and overall outrageousness. And that's why I am in love. Madly in love. That's the way Stardust makes me feel. It had me laughing, it had me pulling my hair out in frustration, and it had me feeling tingly.

Peaches was my curvy, witty hero. Being plus sized myself, I can't help but love seeing a protagonist who has curves and is well with herself. Sure, she has some insecurities, but all girls do. Peaches is strong, bold, lovable, spunky, and hilarious. The people around her can't help but be drawn to her, even if she thinks she is boring. I absolutely loved how she handled Dalton. She didn't let his celebrity change who she was and how she treated him. He was just a smokin' guy that she wanted to play hide and seek with with their private parts

Dalton was eatable. If you didn't know, he is somewhat based off Ian Somerhalder and his character Daemon from Vampire Diaries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laughter on every page May 2, 2014
By Joy2320
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
That is if you have a good sense of humor and are not offended by sex, talking about sex, cursing, and more sex. Between the sex was plenty of silliness that for me made a very enjoyable time. I seriously laughed through the entire book. Otherwise why would I turn around and buy the next two. Not my usual M.O.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic story June 9, 2014
By Patti W
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wish I could give this 10 stars as I so very much enjoyed this book. Just ordered the second one and can't wait to read it. The story is wonderful and the characters are well written. I love books where I care about the characters and there really isn't one in the book I didn't enjoy. The dialogue was great and felt real. Loved these characters. Can't wait to see what happens to Peaches and how she handles Dalton. Get the book you will be delighted.
