The Stars in Her Eyes – Review
Okay so this review is not like the usual review I write. If you are unfamiliar with the Reverse Harem genre or you find yourself more on the …mmm..vanilla side of things..this book may not be for you! That’s okay too. I don’t judge anyone by the books they read. I mean, unless you actually LOVE to read textbooks before bed..because that’s just weird. Sorrynotsorry 😉
Quick rundown on what exactly Reverse Harem is. If you check out Goodreads, they have it defined like this:
Reverse Harem. “Reverse harem” is, literally, the opposite of “harem”, with a group of males centering round a singular female, usually with three or more males. Quite often found under the romance genre.
And honestly..that’s a pretty simple explanation of it. There are Reverse Harem, or RH as I’ll be referring to them from here out, that are contemporary and then there are fantasy/sci-fi type ones. Honestly the latter is what I first was introduced to when it came to RH and it was honestly why I think I was able to read it! I’ve read a few other series since my first RH series (The Alinthia series by Siobhan Davis, which I’ve reviewed and honestly am absolutely CRAZY about it!)
So this book falls into the Contemporary area of RH, where I truly have the hardest time “accepting” it. Polyandry is not something that is really openly talked about. It’s actually illegal in most countries I believe. In the animal kingdom however there are many that you could think of as polyandry. Bees for example, lol, ONE queen – lots of mates. SO I just wanted to kind of give that bit of info about Polyandry and Reverse Harem, etc.
So The Stars in Her Eyes is the story of an aspiring actress who basically goes method for a role in order to win it. Because this isn’t my typical review, there are some things I’ll leave out because you know..it’s definitely an 18+ book and because I don’t have any type of 18+ verification process, I don’t wanna get in trouble haha
I’ll simply say this… if you are into RH and/or Polandry – you’ll definitely like this book! 😉 Promise!
The Stars in Her Eyes
(Love in LA Quartet, #1)
Publication date: March 26th 2019
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Reverse Harem, Romance
Love in LA just got a whole lot hotter!
One woman. Three men. Some things are best kept secret.
“Hands down the best reverse harem I’ve ever read!” Goodreads Reviewer M. Simmons
When Creslyn Knight auditions for the role of a life time, she never expects three things:
1. To know the casting director—intimately.
2. To be insanely attracted to the three stand-in actors at the audition.
3. That she’d soon be putting her morals to the test when her resolve weakens.
Acting is in Creslyn’s blood, and she’s focused her sights on one thing: landing the role of a lifetime. But she’s always been told that everything comes at a cost. The casting director names his when he tells her she must make him believe she can surrender to a harem of men, or he can’t justify giving her the lead role.
Determined to prove him wrong and show him she can tap into a passion that deep, Creslyn throws herself into rehearsals. But the fine line between script and reality soon starts to blur, leading her and three men into unchartered territory. The only problem? She has a jealous roommate, a disgruntled mother, and a string of paparazzi hot on her trail, making Creslyn question the cost of everything.
In a world where some things are best kept secret, is the price of fame too high when it comes to the heart?
The Stars in Her Eyes is book one of the Love in LA Quartet and is a new adult, steamy contemporary romance reverse harem LOVE STORY that can be read as a stand-alone or as an introduction to the series. All the heat you’ve come to expect with a reverse harem, AND a storyline worthy of a contemporary romance love story. Finally, the best of both worlds!
