Seth Rafferty meets Heather at a benefit dinner and realizes immediately that Heather is sizing him up based on his occupation. So he doesn't tell her the whole truth and lets her assume that he's a carpenter because she's already written him off. And despite the contempt of them not matching by Heather's social standards, there's an undeniable attraction that keeps pulling them back together and asking for more trouble. I really enjoyed that push and pull dynamic between them because it was hot and magnetic. It also peeled back the layers hiding the Heather underneath as she slowly comes to a realization bit by bit about how she judges other people. I didn't think like I'd like Heather from when I met her in Sex Symbol, but she's rather vulnerable and has a bit of anxiety that she has to smother down quite a bit. Seth really brings out the confidence in her and helps her see the world with clearer eyes where one's past is nothing to be ashamed of. I loved Seth, more than Micah actually, because he was so down to earth and forthright (except about one thing). The tables turned a few times in the story, which was great, because it forced the characters to face the truth no matter how unpleasant it might be since the truth is what also sets them free.
Heather is an A List Hollywood actress with a troubled past--one she wants to leave right there -- in the past. She would rather not ever have to acknowledge it. However, her past makes her a different person in the now in some ways. She DOES try to help those who may have been in her shoes, but she also is looking for a future with someone who will never, ever remind her of her past, thus making her a snob to some degree.
Seth is also successful in his own right. He has worked hard to become who he is but conversely, doesn't deny his past because that makes him who he is and also because, he is proud of what he has become. Heather, however, makes an assumption upon meeting Seth that causes Seth to try to teach her a lesson.
There are many lessons taught and learned in this book and top of the list is to never, ever judge a book by it's cover. The beauty of this story is how each of them learn to let others in, how to deal with their demons, and how to move forward despite difficult beginnings. Plenty of steam, love and quirky fun moments to be had.
What happens when you allow perceptions and stubbornness to get in your way? This is exactly what happens in Star Struck. Heather Wainwright is a high profile actress who comes from the wrong side of the tracks and fears being branded ‘White Trash’. Seth Rafferty is a humble and giving Production Designer who also was raised on the poorer side of life. Only he doesn’t see it as a secret to hide and be ashamed of. Emotions run high in the first part of this book. Heather first meets Seth and when she comes to believe he is a carpenter she takes a step back.
“He was too appalled—and turned on—to speak. Anything he said would just get him in trouble, and not the good kind of trouble.”
The chemistry between Seth and Heather is combustible. Seth knows Heathers type: ‘Demanding, and self-important’, so rather than reading her in on his actual profession Seth allows her to believe he’s just a carpenter. Very rarely do I find a romance book where I have more empathy for the male lead. This very action occurred whilst reading Star Struck. I truly got whiplash with my feelings towards Heather. There were times when I preferred her PA Lexie more so than her. Heather, in my mind became redeemable when she became a human being with feelings. When her past rode her back, when she didn’t know which way to turn, but knew that Seth was intoxicating and she couldn’t get enough of him.
“She wished it could cover up Seth’s bite marks and her flushed face, and her trailer park past and her pathetic excuse for a soul that never let her move anywhere beyond white trash.”
Enemies to lovers more often than not work for me because of the abundance of emotion in them. I relish the push and pull of the Hero/Heroine trying to figure out whether they want to slap or kiss each other. The passion, when the book is done right, makes the pages sizzle when it comes to the more intimate scenes.
Since I discovered this author, I have found her books to be ones that I always enjoy. Be it because of emotions they elicit, because of a the characters or scenarios she creates, they all feel incredibly real to me. The twists and turns oftentimes leave me pondering or downright obsessed with how and why something happened. Laurelin Paige has fast become an auto-click author for me and Star Struck has only cemented those feelings in me.
