Reviews of Star Struck
 by Jane Lovering

chocheart four02Absolutely amazing. I've only recently discovered this fabulous author and she's fast becoming a firm favourite. It feels like it should be a film! The storyline is so deep and contains so many twists and turns the excitement is almost unbearable! The character of Skye Threppel is so relateable she feels like a friend.

Overall, after putting aside my initial worry over this novel, I really found this an enjoyable novel. I was gripped from the first page onwards, finding myself not wanting to put Star Struck down. It was fast paced, emotional, entertaining and I did not want this novel to end. I cannot wait to read more from Jane Lovering, and will defiantly be picking up Please Don’t Stop The Music, her previous novel with publishers Choc Lit, in order to read more from this sensational author. Go out and buy this one, you won’t regret it!

Lovering has created a set of characters with great depth that I felt the reader could really connect to, and consequently it is hard not to be on Skye's side when she uncovers the dark secrets from her past. What I love the most is that the main characters are not portrayed as perfect individuals, but it is this that makes the characters seem human.
The author's witty and direct writing style pulled me in from the first few words. Plenty of dry humour creeps through into the narrative and had me chuckling out loud. I found this novel really refreshing and look forward to reading Jane Lovering's next.

chicklitreviewsStarstruck was a brilliant novel and despite my wanting more of a fallout, I still think the novel was brilliant. I felt that once I got going and once the novel really kicked in that I struggled to put it down. I just wanted to read one more chapter, one more chapter, one more chapter. It was highly addictive and it was a thoroughly enjoyable read, with tons of drama (proper drama) and action and emotion. I could feel all the characters pain, and as the novel hurtled to its conclusion, I did wonder just what big secret was going to be unveiled next! What hit our characters would take, but despite all the secrets, it didn’t seem outlandish in any way, it was all very natural. Jane Lovering is an excellent new Chick Lit author. She’s found herself a nice niche and I can’t wait for her third Choc Lit novel, and hopefully one will be forthcoming because Jane Lovering is a brilliant author and to not have a new novel from her soon would be a crying shame!

ReviewedAtCTRsteamingcupsteamingcupsteamingcupsteamingcupsteamingcupThis book literally had me in tears and created quite the soft spot for the hero. Although it did get off to a somewhat slow start reminiscent of an old car working to chug to life once it got going it purred like the classic it proved to be. Honestly, I loved this book and it was well worth the slow start to make it to the edge-of-your seat finish.

But I liked that, broken people, trying to move on, trying to move past it, to cope and to survive. Some hiding it better than the rest. It made it real and the romance, well no one is falling in love at once. Skye has to deal with herself before letting someone in. But yes there is a HEA, or the road to one. There is a romantic feeling over the book after all.
A different sort of romantic book. I really liked the setting since I am a nerd after all, good characters and excellent secrets.

This is a dark romantic comedy and there are some shocks along the way. I enjoyed the story line and discovering the secrets these characters had. Fast paced and action packed, just like the sci-fi series, there are some strong emotions from these characters.
There is a but! Felix to be precise. I was uncomfortable with his behaviour involving Skye.  I don't want to spoil the story for you, all I can say is that I would not call someone a friend if they put me in those situations. Saying that the author portrayed these characters well enough to stir some strong emotions in me to dislike this character. Great writing.
Looking forward to more from Jane Lovering.
If you like your chick-lit to have an edge you will love this one!

Star Struck is a psychological and emotional healing journey for more characters than just Skye and Jack. The emotions at times are deep and dark the author has her characters delving into their shadow selves and bringing them out into the light so that they can move on to a future they can live with a future that includes their scars. It is more than a love story! It might even prompt you to look at your own life and accept who you are.

chocheart four02I have just finished Star Struck by Jane Lovering. This is the first book by Jane Lovering which I have read and also the first book published by Choc Lit and I have to say after reading this book I will definitely be keeping my eyes open for more books published by Choc-lit if this book is anything to go by. I also hope to now read some of Jane Lovering’s other books. ...This is a must for your To Be Read piles.  A great shoreline with a mixture of interesting characters, and a splash of suspense thrown in to top it off. The recipe for a great book!

LongandshortAll in all, I enjoyed the story. It had plenty of conflict and action. The characters are memorable and believable. If you enjoy contemporary romance with a splash of wit, then Star Struck might be what you're looking for.

bookbagIt's only a few months since I read Please Don’t Stop the Music, Jane Lovering's debut novel and I was delighted at the thought of another book from her. Perhaps my expectations were too high, because I enjoyed a good story, but I wasn't quite so impressed this time around
