I found Wendy to be too over-the-top and just plain annoying.

This may be one of those cases where familiarity with previous novels written by an author actually ends up hurting my overall rating of a novel. Star Crossed by Jennifer Echols is a good enough story, but Jennifer Echols does not generally write "good enough" stories. I have always enjoyed her young adult books, praising them for having grit and realism along with awesome romance. Her characters are strong and intelligent and layered in a way that always draws me into her books. Star Crossed is Echols first jump into the adult romance market, and although it was a good story, it just wasn't even close to what I expect from her as a writer. Let me explain ...

Star Crossed is the story of Wendy, a PR representative from a New York firm, who has to travel to Vegas to rescue a Hollywood star embarking on a music career. Unfortunately, this star, Lorelei, is dealing with a breakup with another Hollywood star, Colten, in about the most immature and potentially damaging way possible ... using social media to post revealing pictures and snarky comments for her ex to see ... and react to. Although this is par for the course for Wendy in her career, this assignment takes on a bigger meaning because she is on the brink of being fired by her PR firm. If she can't rescue her client she will be out of a job. Colten is not behaving much better than Lorelei, so his agent hired another PR firm to clean things up for him in order to get him in a position to land some big Hollywood roles. His new PR guy is Daniel, future owner of the Blackstone firm, and college nemesis of Wendy. Daniel and Wendy come to see that they can work together to help both of their clients, so they form an unlikely partnership, leading them to discover deeper feelings for one another.

I just finished this novel, and was delighted with it. It's a romantic comedy that delivers both the laughs and the love story. The two main characters, Wendy and Daniel, have been rivals since college. Now working for competing public relations firms, they end up in Las Vegas on business at the same time to dig their clients out of the mess that a very public break up has caused. Wendy is a bright and witty, an easy heroine to like. Daniel is reserved, guarded from years of heartache and high family expectations. But a forced alliance, for the sake of their careers, sparks more between them than either expected. There are a couple of steamy scenes, and plenty of adult content (it is Vegas, after all), so this is one just for the adult ladies (or men with an affinity for romance). I highly recommend this book if you're looking for something lighthearted that will make you smile--a perfect beach or vacation book.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
If you are accustomed to reading Jennifer Echols’ young adult novels, let’s just say that this one might be a bit of a shock. In fact, if you are a young adult, you might want to save this until you’re eighteen. Or twenty-one.

The first of a series, Star Crossed tells the story of Wendy Mann, a publicist who specializes in turning around troubled stars. If you’ve robbed a liquor store or passed out on your neighbor’s lawn and you have box office receipts to protect, then you call Wendy.

When we meet her, she’s in a bit of a professional pickle, however. Her bosses aren’t convinced that she did a good job with her most recent assignment, so they want to fire her. Ever resourceful, Wendy makes a deal: I fix pop star Lorelei’s (think Britney Spears-esque) reputation, and you let me keep my job.

Naturally, there will be obstacles to overcome, but none quite as hot, handsome, successful, intimidating, or – in Wendy’s case – hateful as Daniel Blackstone, her one-time college rival who now fills that professional slot as well. Daniel, you see, represents Lorelei’s on-again, off-again boyfriend, the cause of her many misguided effects.

The thing is, she was soooo attracted to Daniel in college. And he always appeared cold, remote, and disinterested. But the other thing is, he wasn’t. In fact, he has loved her since college.

Our two publicists wind up in Las Vegas with their wayward stars, each determined to protect his or her own interests. Wendy immediately begins teasing Daniel, and he responds by cracking a smile. Wendy enjoys making him smile, much to her horror, as he responds to her.

So … you can kind of guess what happens with our star crossed lovers, can’t you? And I don’t mean Lorelei and Colten.

Oh, I almost forgot.

Wendy Mann loves her job, but she's losing it. After her bosses tell her she's fired, she begs for another chance and they give it to her: rehabilitate teenage rocker Lorelei Vogel before she loses her recording contract. It's an impossible job, but Wendy is determined to do it. It just becomes more difficult when she realizes Lorelei's ex is being repped by Daniel Blackstone, her college rival, and they will all be in Vegas together for this particularly hellish week. Daniel cannot believe he'll be seeing Wendy again. She starred in way too many of his college fantasies, not that she'll ever know that. But Wendy is an unneeded distraction and soon, he cannot help but pay more attention to her than to his client. With the heat turning past the boiling point for these two, can they still manage to keep their respective stars in line long enough to save Wendy's career?

I didn't love this novel the way I've loved all the other stories I've read by Jennifer Echols. I found Wendy to be too over-the-top and just plain annoying. Yes, we get it. You spent a week as a stripper (but apparently it was a very good week) and you have gorgeous blonde hair. Good for you, but seriously, get on with it. Daniel, wasn't much better, coming off as high handed and too darn quiet. He laughs at Wendy's dumb sex jokes, all of which made me cringe. He's apparently very attractive, but I had a hard time imaging him in my head. The romance between the two felt awkward at best and forced at worst. I understand there are legitimate reasons you two cannot screw each other's brains out and get it over with, but I felt like their relationship was just lust and once they are together for a few months, it'll burn out quickly.
