"Oh my god, please tell me that was not your plan."
After being pushed off the stage at the VMAs last year, Alec Andreas's life hasn't gotten much better. Music fans everywhere hate him for his poor treatment of ex-girlfriend and former bandmate, Jenna Rollins. Fearing the backlash, the music industry has all but shunned him.
Afraid of falling into obscurity, Alec reluctantly takes a spot on the new reality show Starving with the Stars, where failing celebrities are stranded on a desert island to compete in challenges and outlast one another—and hopefully revive their flagging careers. Alec is certain that only one thing will make him likeable in the public eye; he needs to cuddle up to one of the cute girls on the island and remind all of America what a great boyfriend he can be.
When he meets Jillian Fall—an aspiring Broadway actress who's become a cabaret-singing internet meme—he finds much more than the arm candy he was hoping for. And what can be the harm in reviving his career and getting the girl?
Alec's falling deeper than he thought possible, but as the contestants vie for the coveted final spots in their island adventure, his schemes are brought to light. Alec's lost everything, but losing her hurts the worst.
With the cameras always watching, can Alec convince Jillian he cares about her more than changing his image as pop music's most notorious liar?
Starving With the Stars is a standalone romance with no cliffhanger, no cheating, and a swoon-worthy Happily Ever After. There is some R-rated sexual content and swearing.
