Review: “Star Struck” by Amber Garza

Blurb:

I don’t go for bad boys, or rockers.
And I don’t believe in love at first sight.
Until I see Beckett.
And things only get worse when I hear him sing.
There is no one like him.
The problem is that he wants nothing to do with me.
And I know I should stay away from him.
It’s the smart thing to do.
Only when it comes to Beckett I don’t want to do the smart thing. He makes me want to take a risk. 

I just hope he decides to take a risk on me too.

My review:

*I was provided with a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. Thank you!*

I.LOVED.THIS.BOOK! ‘Star Struck’ is an amazing book that had me fangirling all the time.

I was glued to this book from the start, First of all, because I love Amber Garza’s books. Second, because as a musician myself, I love books about musicians. I love the atmosphere, the way music is described by the characters and they way my 2 biggest passions interweave. I love the way these kind of books make me feel. ‘Star Struck’ is one of those books. It’s a book that made me fall harder in love with both music and books. It’s a book that I’ll never forget.

As I was reading and the bond between Star and Beckett was growing, I found myself even more intrigued. There was a question that didn’t let me put down the book: What is Beckett’s story?

Speaking about Beckett, he was a jerk in the beginning. I kept asking myseld ‘What is this guy’s problem?’. I mean, on minute he was sweet and I wanted to hug him, and the other minute he was a jerk and all I wanted to do was to smack him in the head. But after 5 chapters I think, I began to understand why he acts so strangely. And I also understood  that this I-am-a-jerk attitude is just a masque. Throughout the book, I finally found out his true self. Beckett is sweet, smart, sarcastic, with an amazing sense of humor, super hot and talented guy with a broken heart.

Star? She was very sweet. I loved her! I loved her for fighting for her dreams and for her love and for standing for herself. She was soooo funny sometimes!

The storyline is poetic, tragic and funny in the same time, full of longing and passion. It made me feel a lot of things, anger and heartbreak between them. I laughed a lot while reading this book. The banter and flirt between Star and Beckett made me laugh even when all I wanted to do was cry,

That one plot twist? That one that ame after I thought that everything was going all right? I wanted to rip Beckett’s head off!!I wa ssoooooooooooo angry with him!

I loved the scenes where Star and Beckett wrote togethere or where they performed together. The intimacy and chemistry between them was palpable.

“Star Struck” is a brilliang read that pulled at my heart strings. Great characters, strong feelings, intense story, lots of music => ‘Star Struck’. In this book I found everything I want from a book. Highly recommend it!
