A London woman is swept off her feet into the glamorous yet surprisingly dangerous world of an up-and-coming star of stage and screen.TO CATCH A RISING STARUnconventional though she may be, Cassandra Wallace leads the life of an average Londoner, from blind dates to rush hour traffic. Then, along comes Bennett Saville. Charming, erudite, the up-and-coming actor is like the hero of a romantic movie. He sets Cassie afire like he has the stage and screen, and defies the tragedy that brought them together. From the tips of his Armani loafers to their scorching hot first kiss, he’s perfect. Only, he’s ten years younger and from the upper class, and those emerald eyes invite dangerous secrets. The world is full of hungry leading ladies, and every show must have its villain. Yet a true romance will always find its happy ending.
This is an author I've not read before and I will probably not be interested in reading anything else by her. It was very slow and extremely predictable. I was quite shocked that 66% into the book (I have a kindle) it finally surprised me and for the first time wanted to actually continue reading without being frustrated and wanting to read something else. I think the last 1/3 of the book should have been the basis of the entire book and expanded on greatly. I would have enjoyed the book much more if it was solely based on Bennett's stalker rather than just some mildly exciting fragments in the last part of the book.Rating: 2Release Date: August 13, 2012Book Length: 381 pagesSource: AuthorReviewed by: JulieReading Format: Available in only in eBook
