Review: Starkissed by Brynna Gabrielson

Kissing movie star Grant West may be every teenage girl’s dream, but when it happens to Sydney Kane, it’s nothing but a nightmare. Sure he’s cute, but having her face plastered all over celebrity gossip blogs is not something she’s interested in. Now cheerleaders are trying to befriend her, reporters won’t stop calling, and her mother keeps chasing her with a curling iron so she won’t be caught by the paparazzi with flat hair ever again. 

Forgetting Grant is all Sydney wants and Colin, the guy she’s had a crush on since seventh grade, seems like a pretty good way to do it. Then Grant shows up at Sydney’s door begging for a second chance and the more she gets to know him, the more she isn’t sure she wants him to go away. But with Grant in the picture, Colin is backing off and she definitely doesn’t want that. Everything is a mess and Sydney doesn’t know what to do, who to choose, or how to make those pesky cheerleaders leave her alone. She only knows one thing for sure, being STARKISSED isn’t a dream come true at all.


MY OPINION:


My first reaction when I read the blurb was :- Oh No! A love triangle again..!But somehow because of the beautiful cover I still went on and read it..and I don't regret it !

Now that I have read it I can tell you, there is no love triangle (at least not a proper one that makes you want to pull your hair out..!). The author has just built up a situation which could have progressed into a love triangle..BUT..it doesn't..! *smile**smile*

The story line is good ,interesting and progressive.There are a few funny instances as well:

She parades down the stairs wearing a tight black skirt, knee high stiletto boots, and a mauve, curve hugging shirt. She makes it to the third to last stair just fine, but then Grant looks up and meets her eyes. She gets flustered and when she goes to take the next step, she loses her footing and falls the remaining way down. 
 Also,
“Nice view,” he says.
“Uh yeah,” I respond intelligently
It's a nice and relaxing summer read. If you are looking for a light, easy, summer romance read, this book is for you.
Here's one last quote from the book for you all:
“Look at that, you’re dancing already.” He grins.
“This isn’t dancing.”
“It is in my book.”
“Well your book is obviously not well written.”
I hope you all enjoy reading it..! :)

  1. Hi,
    Saw the link to your blog in the Book Blogs group. Following you via GFC. My blog is here:

    My Twitter if you want to exchange follows there, too. Just follow and I'll follow back.

    The first thing I thought when I read the summary for this book was, "Yuck, love triangle." So, great review because I think I may actually be able to tolerate it in this book. I don't know why the whole concept of the love triangle bothers me so much- I mean when you're young, it happens. I mean, how do you know who you want to end up with for the rest of your life.
