Overview

Predominantly set in the Nevada desert, this is a novel which will have the readers crying with laughter!

Our memories define us – don’t they?

And Skye Threppel lost most of hers in a car crash that stole the lives of her best friend and fiancé. It’s left scars, inside and out, which have destroyed her career and her confidence.

Skye hopes a trip to the wide dusty landscapes of Nevada – and a TV convention offering the chance to meet the actor she idolises – will help her heal. But she bumps into mysterious Sci-fi writer Jack Whitaker first. He’s a handsome contradiction – cool and intense, with a wild past.

Jack has enough problems already. He isn’t looking for a woman with self-esteem issues and a crush on one of his leading actors. Yet he’s drawn to Skye.

An instant rapport soon becomes intense attraction, but Jack fears they can’t have a future if Skye ever finds out about his past ...

Will their memories tear them apart, or can they build new ones together?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Jane Lovering is an excellent new Chick Lit author. She’s found herself a nice niche and I can’t wait for her third Choc Lit novel, and hopefully one will be forthcoming because Jane Lovering is a brilliant author and to not have a new novel from her soon would be a crying shame!

This book literally had me in tears and created quite the soft spot for the hero.

Meet the Author

JANE LOVERING was born in Devon, England but, following extradition procedures, now lives in Yorkshire. She has five children, four cats, two dogs and doesn’t believe in housework so the bacteria and dust are approaching sentience and now rank among the pets. Incidentally, she doesn’t believe in ironing either, and the children all learned self-defensive cookery at early ages. She works in a local school and also teaches creative writing, which are extreme ways of avoiding the washing up. Jane is a member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association and has a first class honours degree in creative writing. Jane writes romantic comedies which are often described as ‘quirky’. One day she’s going to find out what that means.

    From the first line, I thought ¿ this is classic Jane Lovering.


    From the first line, I thought – this is classic Jane Lovering. Her trademark wit leaps off the page and starts the book off with a smile.
    Jack Whitaker is a jaded script writer who is dark, brooding, disobliging and a tiny bit curmudgeonly. He isn’t your first pick for a Romantic hero. As Jane Lovering often extols the virtues of the Beta-male; I agree. Gethryn is the Alpha-male of the story, but he is so slick and full of himself- my money would be on Jack any day of the week.
    Skye in many ways is like a blank page and since her accident, she has become a new person. Skye has a wicked crush on greasy Gethryn, and takes her time to figure out who she should be with.
    Jack is such a contradictions- on the outside her is stern and enigmatic; but on the inside he is full of insecurities and doubt. That is Jack's appeal, he is cerebral, creative and very delicious.
    Jack understands Skye- and they compliment each other like bookends. Their scars are both physical and emotional; and it is that combined empathy that draws them together. It is very touching how they deal with each other.
    Underneath all the sarky comedy- there is a serious under current about loss and learning to forgive yourself. No one or nothing is as it seems- it is all about how you perceive things.
    There is rather a few earth shattering twists towards the end that you will not see coming. I have to admit I was a bit shocked by them.
    Star Struck is full of complex emotions. The genius of Jane Lovering is that one minute she can make you laugh and the next make you cry. This book is going on my list of favourite books of all times. I loved this book!

    I have a prphecy I need your help with. "The Moon shall rise and Hope shall come. Purity rides on wings like angels. Blessings to all with a pure Heart. The five kingdoms shall unit to defeat the darkness. Purity, Hope, Moon, and Blessing will be found in sleeping beauty awaken but Heart shall be found in the kingdom of hearts."
