Bestselling romance author Helena Hunting is back with her newest rom-com that is sure to be a fan-favorite. Set to be released on May 10th, Starry-Eyed Love brings readers back to Spark House and the party-planning sisters who find love in the most unexpected places.
Having just broken up with her boyfriend, London Spark is not in the mood to be hit on. Especially not when she’s out celebrating her single status with her sisters. So when a very attractive man pays for their drinks and then slips her his number, she passes it right back to him with a ‘thanks, but no thanks’. As the business administrator for their family’s event hotel, the Spark House, London has more important things to worry about, like bringing in new clientele. As luck would have it, a multi-million-dollar company calls a few months later asking for a meeting to discuss a potential partnership, and London is eager to prove to her sisters, and herself, that she can land this deal. Just when she thinks she has nailed her presentation, the company’s CEO, Jackson Holt, walks in and inserts himself into the meeting. Not only that, but he also happens to be the same guy she turned down at the bar a few months ago. As they begin to spend more time together, their working relationship blossoms into something more. It isn’t until their professional entanglements are finally over, that London and Jackson are finally ready to take the next step in their relationship. But between Jackson’s secretive past and London’s struggle with her sisters, London must question where she really stands - not just with Jackson, but with the Spark House, too.
This romance was such a fun and quick read. First of all, who doesn’t love a good millionaire romance? But have that millionaire be a business associate who you are trying to keep things professional with while you’re both feeling the chemistry between you??? Sign me up! I liked the alternating POVs and the way the story progressed. I also really enjoyed London’s character, since we first met her in When Sparks Fly as Avery’s sister whom she was constantly butting heads with.
The beginning of this book was really fun, especially with all of the tension between London and Jackson, but I found myself finding the ending a bit predictable. I also really didn’t like Avery in this book, which was kind of disappointing considering how much I enjoyed her and Declan in the previous book in the series!
While the slow-burn kinda-workplace romance was really well done, this book wasn’t anything super profound. However, I still look forward to reading the next book in this series, which I hope will feature Harley!
