What would you do if you fall in love with your own boss who is a famous celebrity? Jessica Beckett was never expecting herself to work as a personal assistant until she had to get some money to pay for her apartment rent as she did not plan to live with her family. She was supposed to go to France but she was bedridden on the day she needed to get on board. Stacy Wise’s Beyond The Stars is a chick-lit novel which surrounds the Hollywood celebrities’ life… and trust.
What They Say
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.
What I Say
I love reading this book so much even though the starting was a bit draggy. The relationship between Jessica Beckett, and Jack McAlister was quite a flick. I like both characters so much but I’m having problem with the time flow. It would be better if the author states clearly that was Halloween instead of telling how Jessica got herself a Lara Croft’s costume, and then Thanksgiving day. I need to re-read those chapters because the story is quite abrupt. Anyway, the ending is quite as expected when Jack proposed to Jessica while they were in Paris. A fairy tale came true. It’s a sweet romantic story but it didn’t give me enough ‘sting’ to say that it’s really awesome. It’s a nice novel. However, I’d agree that trust is the most important thing in life which Stacy herself highlighted in her novel.
