The Star Attraction by Alison Sweeney

The Star Attraction by Alison Sweeney
2013, Hyperion

Synopsis: Sophie is a Hollywood publicist who has a fabulous job, a fabulous boyfriend, and a fabulous life. She even scores her PR firm's most important actor client and every woman's dream—Billy Fox.

But will a steamy make-out session in a restaurant alley with her big-name client cost Sophie her job? And does she really want an escape from her life and her loving, if imperfect, relationship with her investment banker boyfriend? The Star Attraction takes us on a wild ride through one woman's daytime soap come to life.

The Good: A cute insider's look into the world of publicity in Hollywood. I definitely enjoyed the work aspect of Sophie's life more than anything else in the book. On the whole, it was a light, fluffy novel, perfect for a beach read.

The Bad: I didn't get the appeal of the "fabulous" boyfriend at all, but worse what Sophie's childish attitude towards the relationship. Another guy likes her (actor or not) and it makes her disillusioned about her own relationship? But she doesn't end said relationship. She self-sabotages "subconsciously" to give her an excuse to cheat (which is ridiculous anyway.) I just couldn't like Sophie and it made it rather difficult to see why either of the men were the least bit interested in her to begin with.
