Sarah Travers is a feisty heroine who doesn’t exactly fit the mold of every man’s fantasy. She’s a bit curvy, a bit blunt, with self-esteem issues made worse by a judgmental and uncaring mother. Her love life may not be perfect either, but when it comes to friendship she has an extremely strong relationship with budding actor Cameron. They’ve been friends for years with a connection that completes them and gives them the unwavering support they can’t find from anyone else. She can’t ever picture her life without Cameron, but one drunken decision irrevocably changes everything. Years of attraction towards him finally gets acted upon with long-suppressed feelings coming to the forefront in numerous erotically-charged encounters. Just when personal doubts and fears get alieved, new issues arrive courtesy of the outside world when Cameron gets the starring role of a lifetime and Sarah once again is made to feel lacking. Through their evolving relationship Sarah stays true to who she is as the likable and supportive friend. She‘s protective of Cameron and wants him to have the success he’s always wanted which led to a fake relationship with his co-star that truly tested their budding romance and had me hitting my forehead against the wall once or twice. It was a hurtful decision to both of them and really left their HEA in doubt until they recommitted to what connected them in the first place in an empowering decision that had me cheering.
Cameron Scott’s a sexy small town boy who’s just starting to gain fame. He’s a sweet and loving son too with a friend who means the world to him. He and Sarah are a crackling duo with interactions teeming with sensuality, but he’s too afraid of acting on his amorous feelings for fear their friendship will end. One drunken night though brings all of their feelings out in the open and sets them on a path where friends have become lovers. It’s a romance that starts out sweet and sexy until his leading man role in a blockbuster movie thrusts his relationship with Sarah into the harsh lights of fame and leaves both of them floundering with doubts. During this time I found myself disappointed in Cameron as his actions weren’t always in support of Sarah. A time or two he got caught up in his own hype, but when it was just him and Sarah readers got to see a relationship worth fighting for. Through all their ups and downs Cameron wasn’t the perfect hero as some of his words and deeds hurt the one person he claimed to love the most. But his imperfection made him more easily relatable and showed a man willing to work to earn the woman he loved which ultimately endeared him to me.
On a whole this was an enjoyable read with a likable main couple you can’t help but root for. Their interactions were playful and supportive as friends while as lovers their scenes were scorching and plentiful. When it was just the two of them you could lose yourself in their happiness, but when the outside world intervened things became complicated. The movie business is cutthroat and Ms. Norinne vividly depicted that through its tampering in Cameron’s love life. While it was an over-the-top plot device, it definitely roused me out of my pleasant vibe to leave me on edge as they worked out how to balance fame with their needs and desires. Surrounding this realistically flawed main couple was an eclectic cast of secondary characters. Some were villainous, some were supportive, and some didn’t leave much of any impression, but together they all kept this story moving along at a satisfying pace that culminated in an equally satisfying conclusion. Fans of friends-to-lovers romances will find much to like about this book and will find themselves quickly captivated and ready for more from this author.
Cameron Scott is finally getting the break he always wanted. He is the lead actor in an adaptation of a best-selling novel. All his dreams are finally coming true. Maybe now he can finally show Sarah how much her support has meant to him and how much he wants her. But the studio has very different ideas.
Sarah and Cameron hit it off almost as soon as they met. Quickly becoming the best of friends, they are always there for each other. As she begins to realize it may be more than just a friendship, Cameron gets his big break and all she wants is to be there for him. This is what he has always worked for. But what will his big break cost her?
Doing a fake romance with his leading co-star is the last thing Cameron wants, but everyone else already seems to be on board with the idea, so he has little choice. But hurting Sarah is the last thing he wants. As the fake romance heats up, will their very real one fizzle? Can true love survive this kind of road block?
Lucky Star was full of steamy chemistry and very angsty. As a reader, you can clearly see these two are meant for each other, but so much stands in their way, including each other. Can they find a way back before it is too late?
Ahh, I love the friends to lovers trope! Mutual admiration, respect, like – a great foundation to build on. I would have thought this the case for Cameron and Sarah but I almost was proven wrong…
Cameron wasn’t an alpha male, instead he was a man with feelings and aspirations he didn’t mind sharing with his bestie. They were equals and shared their highs and lows with each other. If he wanted Sarah as more than a friend, he wasn’t going to say that out loud, afraid to mess up what they had. Sarah was hiding similar feelings, both stuck in the friend zone until suddenly, they weren’t. When these two connected, the sexy was hot and you could feel the emotions behind it. All should have been fantastic but, wait, not so fast…
Cameron’s star was rising but Sarah’s self-esteem was determined to sabotage their new, fragile relationship. How they both reacted to the resulting situations made for drama exactly what Hollywood wishes for. I liked the characters, was hoping they worked things out, even as I struggled with some of their decisions, their reactions. Not to mention names of course, cough, Cameron… Thankfully, all the ups and downs ended happily as a satisfying ending wrapped things up nicely….

The sad part is the fauxmance with his co star that the studio insists on to promote the movie. Well this guys in love with her but it has to secret & pushed aside. While Sarah can share some of the blame, Cameron needs to get over his issues & stop retreating.
This is one very angsty tale & shows a side of Hollywood that makes you wonder whether the fame is worth all the hype. The best word I can think of the describe this is manipulation. A very sad but true fact & the horrible impact that it has on their relationship. It makes you question is fame really worth it? However underneath all this love eventually prevails.
