Review – Beyond the Stars by Stacy Wise

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.

Do you have a teenager? Are you a college student or know one? This is probably a good book for you to pick up. It’s completely PG, but possess moral elements that every young girl/lady will go through in life. Not just in love, but with friends as well.

Jessica (Jess), a twenty-one year old girl finds herself working for “THE” Hollywood Actor thanks to her aunt who is his agent and trip to France that never happened. It wasn’t a job she asked for, but she needed it and her aunt needed her help. Without knowing much about how to be a Hollywood Actor’s assistant, she totally struggles with understanding “the business”.

Jack is not only the hottest actor in Hollywood right now, but he’s built a wall so tall around him that the idea of having an assistant is far from what he wants. After his agent talks him into hiring Jess, he struggles with not only finding things for her to do, but whether he can even trust her. After her trust is put to the test a few times, he clearly starts to loosen up a friendship slowly starts to build.

The build up to the “romance” side of this book literally takes the entire read. And then when it finally happens…sigh. I was disappointed that I wasn’t able to enjoy the final outcome like the characters were. It left me flat. I get that this is probably done on purpose to keep it clean, but it honestly left me with a blah taste in my mouth.

HEA? Of course. What PG read wouldn’t end with a HEA?
