Book Review: 'To the Stars and Back' by Camilla Isley.


I love Camilla Isley and have been a fan of all her awesome books. So, I couldn't wait to dive into her latest read 'To the Stars and Back.'


Blurb

When Hollywood’s sexiest bachelor meets the girl next door their relationship doesn’t follow the script…

On-screen, Christian Slade is America’s favorite heartthrob. Off-screen, letting romance into his life isn’t as easy. The women he dates all seem to want a piece of his glamorous life rather than his heart, and trust doesn’t come easy for him.

Then along comes Lana. A beautiful rocket scientist who’s also sweet, smart, sexy, and has absolutely no idea who he is. But what will happen when she finds out?

Will their worlds prove too far apart or could love really be like in the movies?


My Review

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and thought it was a fun, charming and exciting read. It was a lovely story that whisked me away into magical meet-cutes and Hollywood fairytales. 

Straight off the bat I loved Christian Slade. I thought he was charming and an absolute sweetheart. He made me laugh with his matter of fact ways and how he handled his fame sometimes. There are moments when you'd think he should be coming across obnoxious like when he white-lies when trying to live a normal life and does crazy things to try and keep his identity under wraps (like swapping his Ferrari for a Tesla) but honestly he just comes across endearing and funny. I smiled and giggled so much and loved his banter with his personal assistant and how she just accepted his ways. There really was just something so sweet and lovely about him that I enjoyed. He worked hard for his money, loved acting and wasn't just in it to be famous and I thought that was very cool. 

Lana I thought was awesome too. I envied her smarts and thoroughly loved reading about her job as a scientist. She had such a down to earth sweet nature, but I loved that Christian bought her to life, made her have fun and step out of her comfort zone a little bit, while still remaining true to who she was. 

I very much enjoyed that Christian and Lana were with each other through the good and bad. They accepted each other for who they were and I liked that they both owned up to their mistakes and didn't just blame each other. They fought for each other and worked on making their different lifestyles fit together which was beautiful too. Their banter and adventure was so much fun to be a part of. 

There's a delightful element of glitz and glamour mixed in with the coziness of settling down and living a more peaceful life which makes 'To the Stars and Back' such a wonderful read. I highly recommend you pick up a copy today! 

Happy reading!
Love
