BOOK REVIEW#...Shooting Star (Beautiful Chaos #1) by Arianne Richmonde

Title:  Shooting Star (Beautiful Chaos #1)  
Author:  Arianne Richmonde
Publication Date:  July 27th 2014 by CreateSpace (first published June 6th 2014)

Plot:  An edgy, sexy story about falling for the one person you shouldn't have. 

26-year-old movie director Jake Wild lives up to his name: he's the wildest player in town. He's also Hollywood royalty. From a family dynasty of powerful directors and producers, Jake's home is a movie set. With reams of hot starlets at his beck and call, Jake can get any woman he wants. But with his new movie, Skye's The Limit in pre-production, he's decided it's time to get serious and change his philandering ways.

19-year-old Oscar winning Star Davis also lives up to her name. She's an A-list megastar. Hell-raisingly beautiful, she tosses men aside like used Kleenex. She commands 20 million per movie--or at least did until drugs, alcohol, wild partying, and a police arrest sent her into rehab. Now she's out, squeaky clean, and determined to win the role she was born to play: the lead in Skye's The Limit - ready to re-conquer Hollywood. 

But there's just one problem: Jake doesn't want this "liability on legs" near his precious movie. But Star has wily ways of getting what she wants. And apart from the role of Skye, what she wants is Jake right where he belongs:

Under her thumb.

Lights, camera, action . . . 

But the action is not what Jake expected.

*Due to sexy strong language and situations this book is recommended for readers 18 +

 My Review 

☆ I received an RC from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you SO MUCH hun!! ☆


“Yes, that’s right. My name is Star, after all. And I live up to my name.”-“Don’t worry babe…I’m way too bad for you. My name is Wild. And I live up to my name.”

Star Davis


A former child star now reformed party girl, used to getting what she wants and looking to grasp a hold on her life and reclaim her place in Hollywood.

Jake Wild


And an up and coming British playboy director born with a silver spoon from Hollywood’s finest directors and producers and now earnestly trying to make a name of himself.

When these two worlds collide, will they make Hollywood magic? Or end up in disaster?

“Because if I wasn’t careful Star and I would end up playing a dangerous game of cat and mouse…She and I had met our match. And that match, I feared, was about to be struck and cause one hell of a fire.”

And with Star’s reckless liability and seductive mantra mixed with Jake's womanizing ways and hidden jaded past….

Will Skye’s the Limit, be a box office success and launch both Star and Jake’s careers to the next level? Or will it bring them lots of heartache and misfortune? Read and you will find out!

#A jarring, unexpected hit that left me wanting with anxiousness and anticipation!!

I will definitely be keeping a watch on this series and am quite intrigued with how everything will turn out between Jake and Star. Their dynamic relationship was so spot-on and mirrored one another that you can’t help but feel that they are made for one another.

And that ending! I mean, it wasn’t and yet is sort of was a cliffy, but over all, it made me crave even more from this beautifully-dysfunctional duo! Looking forward to Falling Star, Arianne!!

My Rating:
-Overall : 8.5
-Plot : 8.5
-Writing : 8.5
-Characters : 8.5
-Cover : 8.75
