I received a free copy of Star Struck in exchange for an honest review. This did not change my opinion of the book.
If you’re close to my age, you might remember the Choose Your Own Adventure books. I absolutely loved those books. For those not in the know, you would start with the same basic beginning and throughout the story you would be given different options that would lead to different outcomes. They were fun.
Turns out, as an adult, they are still just as fun.
In Star Struck you become Anna Chambliss, irresistible A-list actress engaged to a gorgeous Hollywood star. One day there are rumors splashed across the tabloids that your fiancee is cheating on you. What do you do? Confront him? Find a new man? Have a fling? Each of your choices leads to different consequences, different endings.
Although at times it was a little cheesy or predictable, it proved to be a wonderfully entertaining escapist read. Some of the endings are dark, some are happy with plenty of naughty fun in between. Don’t overthink it. This isn’t Shakespeare. So settle in with a nice glass of wine and enjoy.
The biggest problem for me, was that the format didn’t work especially well in an electronic form. The pages on my reader didn’t always match up with where it was telling me to turn. It took a little searching occasionally, but I could typically find what I was looking for.
All in all, this is a great book for when you want to grab a little “me” time. It would go great with a few little luxuries: some chocolate and wine, maybe a nice bubble bath?
