Book Review: Starkissed

Kissing movie star Grant West may be every teenage girl’s dream, but when it happens to Sydney Kane, it’s nothing but a nightmare. Sure he’s cute, but having her face plastered all over celebrity gossip blogs is not something she’s interested in. Now cheerleaders are trying to befriend her, reporters won’t stop calling, and her mother keeps chasing her with a curling iron so she won’t be caught by the paparazzi with flat hair ever again. 

Forgetting Grant is all Sydney wants and Colin, the guy she’s had a crush on since seventh grade, seems like a pretty good way to do it. Then Grant shows up at Sydney’s door begging for a second chance and the more she gets to know him, the more she isn’t sure she wants him to go away. But with Grant in the picture, Colin is backing off and she definitely doesn’t want that. Everything is a mess and Sydney doesn’t know what to do, who to choose, or how to make those pesky cheerleaders leave her alone. She only knows one thing for sure, being STARKISSED isn’t a dream come true at all.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I honestly don’t know where to begin.. When I signed up to review Starkissed, I didn’t have such high expectations for it. I just thought that it would be a fun book to read and a good way to pass the time. But heck, I was wrong!

This just might be the most refreshing, light feeling, and entertaining book I’ve ever read. Sure it was short and kind of moved too slowly at the beginning for my taste, but as I read further, I just savored every bit of it. I adore Sydney Kane’s sarcasm and her candid and quirky personality. She’s a great person without her knowing it and I just love her for that. And of course, there’s Grant West. He’s charming and sweet and [I can’t figure out why] but he made me smile a number of times with his ‘out of the blue but real sweet’ lines, *sigh*. Although, I feel like I did not get enough Sydney and Grant moments, their numbered interactions were definitely full of awwww-that’s-sweet moments.

Starkissed is also filled with other supporting characters who are all equally appalling and fun to read. I especially adore the Kane family members. They’re pretty extraordinary and I like the lively, happy vibe around them even through all the supposed drama.
Starkissed is all parts romance, drama and fun.. It wasn’t at all what I expected and I’m glad it turned out to be pretty awesome. I just hope it was longer though and that would have given us more of Sydney and Grant and all the buzz that comes with the Hollywood life, but then again, I still loved it!
You should absolutely must read this!
