"If you like books like Beautiful Disaster and Very Bad Things you'll love this. A sexy, steamy romance with just enough angst to keep you on the edge. Shooting Star is HOT, HOT, HOT!!"-Literary Lovers Blog.

"An Addictive, sexy, and intense Hollywood love story. Turn up the air con . . . this is one, hot read."- Angie's Hearthrobs and Heroes.

Movie director Jake Wild lives up to his name: he's the wildest player in town. He's also Hollywood royalty. From a family dynasty of powerful directors and producers, Jake's home is a movie set. With reams of hot starlets at his beck and call, Jake can get any woman he wants. But with his new movie, Skye's The Limit in pre-production, he's decided it's time to get serious and change his philandering ways.

Oscar-winning Star Davis also lives up to her name. She's an A-list megastar. Hell-raisingly beautiful, she tosses men aside like used Kleenex.  She commands 20 million per movie--or at least did until drugs, alcohol, wild partying, and a police arrest sent her into rehab.

Now she's out, squeaky clean, and determined to win the role she was born to play: the lead in Skye's The Limit--ready to re-conquer Hollywood.

But there's just one problem: Jake doesn't want this "liability on legs" near his precious movie. But Star has wily ways of getting what she wants. And apart from the role of Skye, what she wants is Jake right where he belongs:

Under her thumb.

Lights, camera, action . . .

But the action is not what Jake expected.

New Adult Contemporary romance

I love Arianne's take on the jaded world of Hollywood with Shooting Star. Star Davis is the current "hot mess" of the celebrity gossip world. Fresh out of rehab, she is looking to recapture her waning career with the part of a lifetime. Jake Wild is a British director with a wild past of his own. He is looking for the perfect actress for his lasted movie "Skye's the Limit". There is only one problem, that decision has been made for him and he is not happy about it. Jake and Star come together under circumstances neither want to be in. Will they overcome their chaotic pasts and deny the undercurrent of lust that threats to boil over? One of my favorite qualities of Arianne's writing is her characters. They are not squeaky clean people. They're complicated, opinionated, and come with a lot of baggage. It makes for a very engrossing plot and high drama between the characters. Star Davis is not what she seems. At only 19, she's a veteran of the Hollywood child star circuit and has seen and done it all. Star is not afraid to say or do anything it takes to get what she wants. Jake is a product of Hollywood royalty. His family has been making movies for decades and Jake follows in their footsteps. He's also been indulging in the privileged lifestyle a bit too much. Even as Jake and Star clash, they have a lot in common. Arianne creates juicy angst and hot chemistry between them both. I'm a huge fan of movie star romances and Arianne does a fantastic job of crafting a story that could be straight out of OK Magazine. Many of her celebrity references are very accurate (I'm a Hollywood gossip junkie and I know my celebs) and the plot is salacious! The ending does have a bit of a cliffhanger, but nothing too jarring. It's enough to make you crave for the next installment of the series. I give Shooting Star five out of five stars!

I was given this book by the author for my honest review..I love this writer and have enjoyed all of her series. Star and Jake are an unlikely couple with her fresh out of rehab and him fresh into rehab..but for very different reasons.  I am enjoying the bantering between the two and cant wait to continue with the series

I really liked this book. Arianne definitely knows how to grab you from the beginning. I wasn't sure if I was going to like Star but then I thought at least she is trying to turn her life around. Jake is awesome. I love him. This book is funny & a quick read. I can't wait for the next book!! Seriously, go get this book. I am giving this book 4.2 stars out of 5.

I read the free edition of Shooting Star, not expecting much for free. I actually enjoyed it. I will say that Stolen Grace has been my favorite by this new found author of mine. Keep writing Arianne!
