About the book:
In Stars Collide, Kat Jennings and Scott Murphy don't just play two people who are secretly in love on a television sitcom—they are also head over heels for each other in real life. When the lines between reality and TV land blur, they hope they can keep their relationship under wraps.
But when Kat's grandmother, an aging Hollywood starlet with a penchant for wearing elaborate evening gowns from Golden Age movies, mistakes their on-screen wedding proposal for the real deal, things begin to spiral out of their control. Will their secret be front-page news in the tabloids tomorrow? And can their budding romance survive the onslaught of paparazzi, wedding preparations, and misinformed in-laws?
From the sound stage to a Beverly Hills mansion to the gleaming Pacific Ocean, Stars Collide takes readers on a roller-coaster tour of Tinseltown, packing both comedic punch and tender emotion.
This fun little book is presented on the set of a TV show and revolves around the real lives of the characters in the show.
I enjoyed the chapters being named after TV shows and the many references made to TV and movies. Throughout the book Kat's grandma would play a different character each day and Kat would ask "Who are we today Grandma?"
Stars Collide is filled with witty and quirky characters as well as a solid message. I’ll definitely tune in for the next book in the series
“It’s crazy how nearly every area of my life has changed in such a short amount of time,” I said. “When God moves…he moves fast.” “Tell me about it. Sometimes he blows in like a storm. Other times he waits offshore and you wonder if he’s ever going to show up.”
