Before I was even half done with this book, I knew it was going to a 5-star book. From page one, maybe even the first line I was hooked. Christian is a big-time actor, and when he comes across Lana crying in a hotel supply closet, he knows he's going to be hooked. She is a breath of fresh air to him because she doesn't know him. The only problem is that when they first met, she had just found out her current boyfriend was cheating on her. She is a Rocket Scientist and a Professor, and so she likes her quiet life. Now they have to learn how to deal with the paparazzi if they want to be together. I loved this book. I read it all in one sitting. The characters were fun and down to earth. The storyline was also fun and so easy to be sucked in by. It had drama and romance and was all around a great story.

Movie star Christian Slade is trying to avoid the paparazzi at the hotel he is staying at. He rushes into a nearby storage room and soon hears muffled sobs. Inside is Lana who has followed her boyfriend to the hotel and witnessed him and another woman, one of her friends, entering a hotel room together. Lana doesn’t watch TV or movies so has no idea who Christian is, much to his relief. He tries to comfort her and stop her from crying. On departing the room he offers her a lift home in his ‘environmentally friendly car’. The two seem to have an instant connection and before leaving Lana gives Christian her business card n which she has written her phone number on the back. Eventually, Christian calls Lana but with Lana not knowing about his celebrity status how is he going to keep his fame and fortune from her and what will happen if she ever finds out who he really is? To the Stars and Back is the fourth book in the First Comes Love series by Camilla Isley. However, all books can be read as standalones, even if the characters do cross over into other books. In this book, we meet rocket scientist and teacher Lana who is a very well educated and clever woman. She cares about the environment and doesn’t like fuel guzzling cars or celebrities. Christian is a multi-million dollar celebrity who loves his fast, loud cars and spending money. He sees something in Lana he likes and is willing to be someone different for her, but to get Lana to like him he has to pretend he is something he isn’t, or is this the real Christian behind the movie star money and looks? The book was a quick, easy read and the story flowed along at a decent pace. The friendship/relationship between Lana and Christian felt natural and realistic even if I didn’t agree with him hiding his career and wealth from her. The book is written in dual POV which I’m not a great lover of but I managed to not let it bother me. It was entertaining and had a few laugh-out-loud moments and a lot of moments that made me smile. The book is perfect for fans of Rom-Coms and with two more books in the series being planned this is a fabulous series to invest your time in.

Cute, sweet, and fun! To the Stars and Back is a quick, light, flirty tale featuring the sensible, clever Lana and the handsome, successful Christian as they navigate a relationship that includes a storage room meet-cute, careers that are worlds apart, instant attraction, romantic moments, and undeniable chemistry. The writing is sharp and smooth. The characters are quirky, charismatic, and endearing. And the plot is a delightful blend of drama, emotion, snappy dialogue, fame, fortune, stardom, tender moments, friendship, and love. Overall, To the Stars and Back is a warm, witty, charming tale by Isley. And even though it is the fourth title in the First Comes Love series it can easily be enjoyed and appreciated as a standalone novel.

I love the way that these two get together. It is absolutely a wonderfully meet-cute and Lana is an absolute doll for how she handles some of the things that come afterward. I’m not sure I could be as forgiving as she is once she finds out who he really is and that he keeps it a secret for a while. I understand why but … and when he has that REALLY big idiot moment … yeah, she’s a doll. Isley knows how to craft an entertaining story full of characters that readers can get behind. Lana may be clueless about all things Hollywood but she’s pretty good at Christian. It’s a bit of a struggle, coming from two different worlds, but eventually (of course) they figure things out. Christian also (besides those idiot moments) has moments when he proves just how out of touch with the regular world he is. But I appreciate that he likes Lana enough to try and he’s got a great support system that likes the real guy, not just what he can do for them. Although I think they could have maybe tried a little harder to keep him from being SUPER idiotic There’s drama – how can there not be in a world like his – but it’s not too far out there and Isley does a good job of bringing it back to center when it’s time. Fun, funny, and with characters hard not to like, Isley once again delivers an addictive page turner. (Part of a series but can stand on its own very, very easily. A few short cameos, and maybe a bit of a feel of Christian, from previous books is about it.) **Review given honestly and freely after receipt of a reader copy. This opinion is completely my own and was not influenced in any way.**

Favorite Quotes: “Two adults booking a room at the Peninsula? They’re not here to play Scrabble,” she hisses. “I’m trying to find a silver lining,” Winter says. “If breaking up with Jonathan isn’t giving you the slightest chest pain, perhaps it isn’t all bad you broke up. I mean, he and my sister are two cockroaches who deserve to burn in hell forever, but maybe it was about time you took your relationship with John behind the barn and shot it.” My Review: This was a fun and appealing read that was smartly written and I can boast it was also informative as well since the main character was a rocket scientist who taught me the little known fact that there is a scientific unit of measurement called a slug, which weighs 32.2 pounds. And my mother always chided me for reading fiction - claiming it was a waste of time. I adored these characters, they were easily accessible and highly likable and I wanted good things for them. Penned in my favorite dual POV, the writing style was crisp and engaging, yet also perceptive and loaded with wry wit and clever touches such as naming identical twins Summer and Winter. I easily fell into this tale from the very beginning and felt happily entertained and well pleased as I zipped through their star-crossed storylines.
