"Beyond the Stars" by Stacy Wise

Author's Book Description : A new adult romance from Entangled's Embrace imprint...

Falling for him wasn't in the plans...

Most girls would kill for the opportunity to work for Jack McAlister, Hollywood's hottest actor, but twenty-one-year-old Jessica Beckett is ready to kick him out of her red Ford Fiesta and never look back. She should be spending her junior year in France, eating pastries and sharpening her foreign language skills. Instead she's reluctantly working as Jack's personal assistant, thanks to her powerhouse talent agent aunt.

Jack is private, prickly, and downright condescending. Jessica pushes his buttons—she's not the type of girl to swoon over celebrity heartthrobs, precisely why her aunt thought she'd be perfect for the job—and Jack pushes right back.

But as she begins to peel away his layers, Jessica is shocked to find she craves her boss's easy smile and sexy blue eyes. The problem is, so does the entire female population. And what started out as the job from hell soon has Jess wondering if a guy like Jack could ever find love with a regular girl like her.

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!! Jess’ (Jessica) dream has always been to live in France and speak fluent French. However, that all changes after she has to give up her year abroad because of getting mono. So, if she wants to stay in LA she is stuck helping out her Aunt by becoming a personal assistant for Jack, a popular leading actor. They don’t have a good beginning at all but overtime they let each other into their worlds and overtime they seem to fall for one another. But could it all be too good to be true or are they actually “soul mates”….

This passionate sweet romance wins over its readers with endearing characters that make you want to either be them OR want them to be your friend! I fell in love with Jack right alongside Jess. Finding out whom the “true” Jack was behind the fa├žade he shows everyone else was entertainingly enjoyable. It made this first-person read a mystery in a way because though you know they’re going to get together it is the “how” that made me more curious than ever. In addition, I liked watching how Jess grew in her relationships all around even though it was a struggle for her in some cases.

Yet it WAS Jess’ relationship with Jack that sells this novel, and hooks me from the beginning. As Jack is SOO secretive that finding out what made him tick was fun. PLUS, they were/are sooo wonderful together! I truly loved the ending and the way their plotline was laid out! *happy sigh*

I HIGHLY recommend this novel to those looking for a passionately sweet New Adult romance!!

Author's Novel Extras :

Book Teaser(s) :
Francine's voice blares from the monitor, announcing Jack McAlister! It's too bad I missed her monologue. She's always so funny, and God knows I could use a laugh right now. Jack walks out, carrying Leo in the crook of his arm, football-style. He waves with his left hand, and I can see the gift bag just showing in the pocket of his vintage leather jacket.
The audience goes wild. Women scream, "I love you, Jack!" They sound ridiculous. I would never embarrass myself in front of a movie star that way. Apparently, I prefer to show them my boobs. ~ within Chapter 2
He offers me a genuine smile, and I'm not going to lie; it feels like sunshine on a cloudy day. ~ within Chapter 3
"Are you really comparing women to Hostess treats and homemade cake?" ~ within Chapter 30
