Over one million “likes”—but only one of them matters.

After pop star Ryan De Luna praises Maisy Harrison’s YouTube cover of his classic hit, he offers Maisy and her fledgling band the opportunity of a lifetime: to be his opening act.

Music may be Maisy’s life, but she has one ground rule: never date a musician. That goes double for a heartbreaker like Ryan. If only she didn’t feel so vulnerable to his larger-than-life charm. And maybe now more than ever, when he asks for her help to shake off his playboy image. How can she resist playing the part of his fake girlfriend for the duration of the tour?

Ryan’s never met anyone like Maisy. She sees past all the star-studded fame and treats him like any other guy. And the more time they spend together, the more he finds himself falling for her. Now he’d like to make their imaginary fling an IRL thing. But can he convince her to take a chance and trust him with her heart?

My Review

#MOONSTRUCK is another sweet romance in this series between a celebrity, this time a pop singer, and a regular gal. The story is full of sibling camaraderie, a fun group of band characters, music, some heartache, and a romance with plenty of chemistry. An overall enjoyable romance with a little sizzle and a sweet happily-ever-after.

I adored Maisy and her brothers! They are so much fun! I loved all the teasing and joking around. They're a tight group. Maisy's friend was also a riot! I loved how Maisy runs into Ryan and how they're so at odds, but there's serious romantic tension. Like the previous story, there is a ton of chemistry that you can feel between these two. I loved how Ryan's and Maisy's relationship develops and how Ryan soon is accepted by Maisy's brothers. Ryan was such a great character! Talented, gorgeous, down-to-earth, but has a softer more vulnerable side as well. I also appreciated how the social media and paparazzi felt fairly authentic, both the good and bad.

Maisy has a pretty big jaded view of musicians, even though she and her brothers are musicians and trying to make it big. It made a lot of sense how she was so wary of Ryan. I did have some issues with how dramatic she is at some points and some of the reactions she has. She came off just a little overdone and immature. I also thought her continual avoidance of her feelings got a little old. Thank goodness she redeems herself in the end and Ryan is such an awesome guy.

In the end, was it what I wished for? I enjoyed reading this and am looking forward to more in this series! If you're looking for some sweet romance with a little heat and fun characters, give this one a go.
