The job he loves or the woman of his dreams.
Secrets and lies. Love and laughter. And two people with something to hide and everything to gain.
Welcome to the party.
“Eyes like midnight, and she was sparkling starlight.”
“I wondered if there was a moment where she didn’t shine, where the light didn’t catch and cling to her.” “
There’s nothing left to say. His lips captured mine and kept them, stole them like the truth he was swallowing for safekeeping.”
“Those eyes were bright as starlight, blinding me from everything but her. Her face, so small in my hands, her smiling lips, the whole of her teeming with joy and vibrance that affected me in ways I couldn’t have anticipated. It was a contact high, a second hand buzz, but even diluted, she was made of potent stuff.”
Star Bright is the exciting and refreshing new romance that I have been searching for. The plot was unique and thoroughly entertaining. Staci Hart has created a world filled with glitz, glamour and parties that one could only dream of attending. Star Bright is a story that is so unexpected that it knock you off your feet and leave you begging for more. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t 100% sure what I was getting myself into when I picked up this book. All I really heard was new book from Staci Hart, and I knew I had to get my hands on it. And let me tell you, Staci Hart does not disappoint. Star Bright is both exciting and thrilling, and will leave readers salivating as they burn through the pages.
From the moment I met both Levi and Stella, I was hooked. You see, Levi scored the unbelievable, a coveted invite to one of the most prestigious parties. But, Levi isn’t just there to have a good time. No, Levi is there to undercover the truth about these to die for parties and hopes to uncover the mastermind behind it all. But what Levi didn’t plan on was meeting Stella. Stella is one of the elite, the core members to the secret society. And just one moment with Stella, turns Levi’s entire world upside down. Everyone has secrets and truths they want to keep hidden. But, the more time Levi spends with Stella, the more the lines get blurred. The pull between them is impossible to ignore. Levi knows that being with Stella is a bad idea, but he just can’t stay away……
I thoroughly enjoyed Star Bright. This book was such a fun read. The plot was refreshing and kept me glued to the pages. I fell in love with Levi and Stella instantly. Not only were they easy to connect with, but I easily got lost in the two of them. While Stella was a member of the elite, she never really acted spoiled or privileged. Levi was Stella’s exact opposite. He wasn’t used to the world of glitz and glam and what privilege offered. But, they never let those facts get in their way. There was just an ease with these two and it just pulled me to them. Their connection was one that was instant, yet undeniable and it just oozed off the pages. Levi and Stella’s road to happily ever after wasn’t an easy one. Naturally, there were some bumps along the way. Levi and Stella both had some issues with trust and honesty. Neither one of them being perfect. At the end of the day, I was utterly captivated by the two of them and couldn’t wait to see how their story would come together in the end.
Star Bright is the first book in the Bright Young Things Series and gives us one heck of an introduction to this dazzling world. This story was unexpected in the best way possible and I loved every second of it. From the romance and steam, to glitz and glamour and a little mystery in between. This book was a joy to spend my day getting lost in. All I have left to say is when can I get my hands on the next book in this series???

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
