Star Attraction Review...

Chick Lit Romance, Destiny Romance…rrp $4.99
Publication date: 14 May 2014

The worlds of media and celebrity collide in this fun and engrossing debut novel from entertainment and fashion writer Vanessa Stubbs.

Exploring the phenomenon of when opposites attract Star Attraction pitches two people at the height of their successful careers and asks if they'd risk it all for love.

The tale begins when Madison, an independent, ambitious journalist reporting on the issues that matter, is sent to interview Jamie (most-gorgeous-man-on-earth) Hall and Hollywood heartthrob from The Rose Diaries, a generation defining flick.

Suddenly Jamie Hall collapses during his day of publicity and the pressure is on for Madison to get the inside scoop. While she never counted on offending Jamie, he is exhausted with the media putting words in his mouth, and the interview goes horribly wrong.

But a chance 3am meeting in the last place you'd expect to find a movie star reveals that not all
is as it seems with Jamie Hall.

They're from opposite worlds but Jamie and Madison have more in common than they realise.
Can their love blossom with their mounting career pressures and the entire world watching?


I have been reading this book for a while now and am really struggling 
to get into it.  I have pushed it aside multiple times over the last few 
months and just can't do it.  The story line seems to be well thought out 
and the characters are easy to read.  It is the writing style that is bothering 
me and I can honestly say that I have given up on trying for now.  I will 
hopefully find the time to come back to it later and see if it gets any better 
for me. 

2.5 stars
