Overview

AT ITS HEART ARE TWO EXTRAORDINARY LOVERS, SEPARATED BY TRAGIC CIRCUMSTANCES, yearning for each other, yet seemingly never able to be together again.

Jackie Collins’ American Star is a love story for the ages.

Nick and Lauren can never forget each other. Teenage small-town lovers — he from the wrong side of the tracks, she the prettiest girl in town — their love was the town scandal, forbidden, sizzling and unforgettable, ending abruptly in a tragedy that sent them into separate orbits.

Nick pursues his dream of acting, and after a series of wild adventures begins the slow rise that will make him one of Hollywood’s biggest stars. Lauren goes to New York and enters the modeling world, surprising everyone with a career that takes off in a direction she never expected. American Star follows them both on their trips to fame, as Nick and Lauren, haunted by the secret they share, try to live without each other — only to find they can’t.

American Star is a compelling story of love, sex and murder, set against the glamorous backgrounds of New York and Hollywood, as only Jackie Collins!

    I Couldn't close this book until I read the whole thing!

    This book is amazing it has everything you could want in a book. Theres so many characters and so much going on with each one that you can't put it down you just need to know what's going to happen next. This is my second book I've read by Jackie Collins and I can tell this is going to be my favorite. She's definitly one of my favorite authors.

    Awesome!!!!!!!!!

    This book was excellent!!!!!!! It's about a true love that never dies and loyalty beyond belief. It was very well written and engaging. It's one of those books that I know I'll re-read. A rags to riches Nick doesn't let his fame interfere with what's truly important in life. Please buy this book. It's well worth it.

    Never Fails

    Jackie Collins has got to be the best author out there. I read this book and it was so filled with suspense. I've always loved her work and I just discovered her about 4 years ago. Normally I feel like she has a lot of characters in her book, and although there were quite a few in this one, they all had a story to tell. I was on the edge of my seat just to see what happened next. This is a must read!!

    AMAZING ROMANCE

    I was never a romance novel reader. My college roommate is a big romance novel reader. I was wanting a good book to read and she thought i should read this book. I was a bit hesatent to read it but then i started reading it and loved it. I read it twice and i still can't put it down. Its an amazing story that give hope to people looking for love or still longing to be with that one special person. This gives us faith in love making showing us that there is one true love for everyone.

    The J.C. Book EVER!! I want a sequel!

    I have read many Jackie Collins books (almost all of them) and this was one I couldn't put down until I finished it! It has been dubbed 'THE BOOK' around my house because I locked myself in the bedroom and let hubby and the kids fend for themselves. (which hubby seems never to forget when we get into an argument, LOL) Never have I been so into a book like I was this one. It is by far my favorite book of all time and I would LOVE it if Jackie Collins could muster up a sequel. I hated the fact that this book even came to an end. I wanted it to keep going!

    Grabbed My Heart

    I have read every book Jackie has ever written. This one was one of my favorites, I read the whole thing in one night. You truly feel for the characters and your heart strings will be pulled. Great job Jackie would love a sequel to this one.

    The Best One Yet

    I have all of Jackie Collins books, and I have been reading them since I was a teen. This book is the BEST one by far. The only way it could have been better is if she could have put LUCKY in it somewhere. You won't be able to put this book down, and when you finish you'll want to read it again!

    fun read

    I'm not a big Jackie Collins fan. I read this book just for fun. And it was fun, but kind of long. A great beach book.

    JACKIE AT HER BEST

    This was the best Jackie Collins book that I have ever read. I couldn't put it down and I couldn't stop talking about it to my friends. I think that this book should become a movie...It is full of love, lust, power and intensity that would entertain anyone. I didn't want the book to end!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Jackie Collins has done it again with a great rate of 5 stars.

    I have read this book over and over again. Each time, I will cry with happiness because Lauren Roberts and Nick Angelo really, truly, madly, and deeply love one another and they try to deny it but can't. I would recommend this book to so many readers because it is all about love. This would also make a great movie.
