A deliciously charming novel about finding yourself, and falling in love along the way.

Nothing ever happens in Little, CA. Which is just the way Carter Moon likes it. But when Hollywood arrives to film a movie starring former child star turned PR mess Adam Jakes, everything changes. Carter's town becomes a giant glittery set and, much to her annoyance, everyone is starry-eyed for Adam.

Carter seems to be the only girl not falling all over herself to get a glimpse of him. Which apparently makes her perfect for the secret offer of a lifetime: playing the role of Adam's girlfriend while he's in town, to improve his public image, in exchange for a hefty paycheck. Her family really needs the money and so Carters agrees. But it turns out Adam isn't at all who she thought he was.

As they grow closer, their relationship walks a blurry line between what's real and what's fake, and Carter must open her eyes to the scariest of unexplored worlds - her future. Can Carter figure out what she wants out of life AND get the guy? Or are there no Hollywood endings in real life?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Guilty Pleasure Sometimes you just need a satisfying romance. Catch a Falling Star is a book that makes you throw out the idea of analyzing the details and allows you to just sit back and enjoy the completely predictable, light-hearted, warm fuzzy feeling that it brings. It’s been a long time since I have been able to read a book in one sitting. Catch a Falling Star has the perfect additive romantic comedy feel that had me chuckling and beaming with each turning page. The whole idea behind the story is a little cliché. What are the chances that a small town girl would get the opportunity to play pretend girlfriend to an extremely successful movie star. I’m thinking the chances are slim. But of course, this scenario is the perfect set up for silly banter, cheesy one liners, and the opportunity to play the lonely celebrity card who falls in love unexpectedly. I really don’t want to downplay this book, though. There were a lot of special elements that made this book so much more than a typical contemporary romance. Catch a Falling Star is the perfect guilty pleasure for a sweet, slow burning romance.
