#Moonstruck by Sariah Wilson


Synopsis: 

Over one million “likes”—but only one of them matters.

After pop star Ryan De Luna praises Maisy Harrison’s YouTube cover of his classic hit, he offers Maisy and her fledgling band the opportunity of a lifetime: to be his opening act.

Music may be Maisy’s life, but she has one ground rule: never date a musician. That goes double for a heartbreaker like Ryan. If only she didn’t feel so vulnerable to his larger-than-life charm. And maybe now more than ever, when he asks for her help to shake off his playboy image. How can she resist playing the part of his fake girlfriend for the duration of the tour?

Ryan’s never met anyone like Maisy. She sees past all the star-studded fame and treats him like any other guy. And the more time they spend together, the more he finds himself falling for her. Now he’d like to make their imaginary fling an IRL thing. But can he convince her to take a chance and trust him with her heart?

My Review: 5 Stars

Maisy Harrison has one life rule... never date a musician. She has her father to thank for it. He was too busy being a jerk and making babies to actually care for the kids he already had. She doesn't have any problems keeping that rule. Well... that was until she met the gorgeous, playboy Ryan De Luna. It would be in everyone's best interest to stay far, far away from that man. 

From the moment Ryan first met Maisy, he knew she was something special. Not only was she not afraid to speak her mind about what she really thought of him, but she actually saw him as a real person... not some rich playboy that everyone else saw. And if that wasn't enough to hook him, listening to her sing a cover of one of his songs would definitely do it. Not only is she feisty and beautiful but she's talented and smart. 

When the opportunity arises for Maisy and her brothers' band, Yesterday, to be the opening act on Ryan's Moonstruck tour, they would be crazy to pass it up. This may be the break they have been waiting for. 

While touring together, Ryan confides in Maisy that in order for him to start making the kind of music he wants to make, he first needs to clean up his image and prove to his record label that he's matured. But in order for that to happen, he's going to need Maisy's help. Nothing too crazy... they just need to have a fake relationship. 

Wait. What?! A fake relationship? Doesn't he know how dangerous that is?! Does he not feel the explosive chemistry between them?! Maisy will just have to be extra careful and guard her heart. But somewhere along the way it went from being fake to real for Maisy. With her feelings for Ryan growing, she knows she needs to be extra careful because he has the power to crush her heart. But what she doesn't see or realize is that she, too, has the power to crush his heart. 

Just as Maisy puts her trust and future in Ryan's hands, his past comes knocking... literally. Will they be able to stay strong together? Or will Maisy's past experiences have her running at the first sign of trouble? One thing's for sure. They will both need to do some serious soul searching if they're ever going to have a HEA. 

*dreamy sigh*

Oh how I loved this book! I found myself reading it every chance I could! I may or may not have lost track of time on several occasions and may or may not have been late for a few things. But y'all... it was worth it! I couldn't get enough of this book! I adored Maisy and Ryan! I loved seeing their relationship develop and felt like I had a front row seat watching them fall in love. There were definitely some extremely swoony moments that had me fanning myself more than I already was due to this heatwave we're currently having in my area. These two were absolutely perfect for each other! 

And while I loved most of the side characters, I have to admit that at times a couple of them bugged the crap out of me! Maybe it's because I don't have any older brothers but I wanted to Gibbs slap Fitz more than once. And what in the world was all that with Diego?! He was nice and funny at the beginning of the book and then turned cold and jerky while on tour. We never did get to find out what crawled up his butt and died. *le sigh* Oh well. At least we had lots of Maisy and Ryan! ;) Hehe.

If you're looking for a fun and swoony break from reality then I highly recommend you check out this series! I am loving it! I can't wait for the next book to be released!

Ms. Wilson is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. I have enjoyed all the books I've read so far! Looking forward to reading more by her!

And for my casting... I absolutely adore these two! What do you think?

  3. Love the casting! And I agree about Diego. It was weird. The big brothers.... I have 3 of them. And sadly, they are that obnoxious.
