books of the week - Jane Lovering - Starstruck/Can't buy me Love
31 May 2017

Regulars of this blog will know I'm a big fan of Jane Lovering's witty, quirky writing style and larger than life, flawed but compelling characters. Fellow Choc Lit author jane now has over xxx books out on Amazon and whilst I await the arrival of the latest on audiobook, I'm delving back into the backlist with StarStruck.

Am loving this tale of two hotties - Gethryn the Welsh TV soap super stud and Jack, aka The Ice Man, the script writer and show runner behind the top TV series that heroine Skye encounters on her trip to a sci fi convention in deepest hottest Nevada. I always love how Jane interweaves an intriguing back story into her tales, and this one is another that makes me look forward to getting back in the car to continue the audiobook as I want to find out what happens.

"Our memories define us don't they? And Skye Threppel lost most of hers in a car crash that stole the lives of her best friend and fiancé. It's left scars, inside and out, which have destroyed her career and her confidence. Skye hopes a trip to meet the actor she idolises will help her heal. But she bumps into mysterious Sci-fi writer Jack Whitaker first. An instant rapport soon becomes intense attraction, but Jack fears they can't have a future if Skye ever finds out about his past... Will their memories tear them apart, or can they build new ones together?"

You can see how Jane's writing style develops into what she has now become - even more original and funny than Star Struck - so hurry up Choc Lit, get the next one done on audiobook so I can listen to it on my long car journeys to and from Devon!
