Summer time is one of my favorite times to read chic lit books. Since the temperatures soared into 100′s, I thought it was the perfect time to read The Star Attraction which I found out about through some of my twitter followers. This book was written by Alison Sweeney who hosts the reality show The Biggest Loser and stars on NBC hit daytime dram Days of Our Lives. This marks Alison Sweeney’s first time writing a fictional novel after her previous two nonfiction books. Kudos to her for a job well done.
The synopsis from the book jacket is as follows:
Sophie is a Hollywood publicist who has a fabulous job, a fabulous boyfriend, and a fabulous life. She evens scores her PR firm’s most important actor client and every woman’s dream- Billy Fox. But will a steamy make-out session in a restaurant alley with her big name client cost Sophie her job? And does she really want an escape from her and her loving, if imperfect, relationship with her investmment banker boyfriend? The Star Attraction takes us on a wild ride through one woman’s daytime soap come to life.
At first I was a bit skeptical to read this book. The synopsis sounded like the typical summer beach read. However, I was pleasantly surprised at how funny and entertaining the Star Attraction turned out to be. I actually found myself rooting for the book’s spunky heroine Sophie Atwater to succeed in her quest to find love and happiness. I am recommending The Star Attraction to anyone who is looking a fun, quirky read that will make you laugh out loud. Have you read the Star Attraction? If so let us know what you think. If not what are you waiting for? Until next time…stay cool and keep reading.
