"Before He Was Famous" [HotFlush/Starstruck Series, Book 1] by Becky Wicks

Author's Book Description : ***Warning: this book contains graphic language, sex, and mature situations. Not intended for young adult readers.***

One guy, one girl. One in the spotlight. One in the shadows.

Falling in love with your best friend isn’t always a great idea, especially when he’s Noah Lockton – the sexiest, most famous new talent on the planet. When 21-year-old small-town photographer Chloe Campbell is offered the chance of a lifetime – to join her celebrity childhood friend Noah on tour as an exclusive blogger for a New York magazine – she’s certain both have put what happened four years ago behind them.

But his eyes still burn; his voice is still a jackhammer to her heartstrings; all his songs are about her. Is it possible that that night still haunts them both?

The music industry is a machine, spinning hype and rumors as much as his records. It’s not just Noah’s girlfriends who’ve got it in for Chloe (there’s no stopping the Twitter-obsessed, cat-loving pop-star Courtney Lentini for starters). Pretty soon, the jealousy and media frenzy surrounding these so-called-friends takes a life-changing turn and it seems making love means making enemies at every turn. When tragedy threatens to pull the final curtain on their relationship, both Chloe and Noah must make a choice. As much as this world leaves them starstruck, is living their dream really worth living without each other?

A story of lifelong friendships, love and hope, set in a world of celebrity, fame and social media gone very, very wrong.

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! Not what I suspected, as it was so much more! I found it to be a fun mixture of Ms. Haddow's "Tweethearts" and Ms. Ahern's "Love, Rosie" (which happens to be one of my all time faves). This is one highly intense and entertaining novel about best friends trying to keep their friendship exactly the same during their fast changing lives. Sweet, electrifying, and very dynamic Noah and Chloe's relationship is one I loved reading about even as I was never quite sure what would pull them apart next!

I recommend this to anyone who's a fan of the above novels and/or to those who love fast paced contemporary romances!

Author's Book Trailer :

Book Teaser(s) :
'Ryder Telling?' I say, willing my mind and tingling body to calm the hell down.
He grins and his eyes light up and I can feel them lighting me up, too. 'Can you believe it? We're doing Boston, Washington, Chicago, Florida, Denver, Texas, New Orleans, Vegas...'
'Yeah, and more. Denzel says if it goes well and I get the right publicity and following, I'll get to go solo, maybe even onto Europe!'
I feel my eyes bulge. His happiness is infectious -- he's a kid again, telling me he learnt A Whole New World on the guitar so I could sing Princess Jasmine's part with him as Aladdin. He was so proud. I was so impressed.
'You know what that sounds like, don't you?' I'm smiling now.
'It sounds like an awfully big adventure,' we say at the same time. ~ within Chapter 22 - titled 'Chloe'
'How about we don't even look at our phones? How about we pretend we're just...'
'Peter and Pan,' she finishes.
I pull her jacket hood up over her head and do the same with my sweater before leading us out the door. We climb into the back of the waiting car. 'Second star to the right and straight on till morning,' I quote at the driver and Chloe laughs.
'What a funny address, Peter' she replies, switching off her cell. ~ within Chapter 30 - titled 'Noah'
