Book Review: Shooting Star by Jeffe Kennedy

Shooting Star by Jeffe Kennedy
Genre: Adult Fiction(Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: March 6, 2018
Publisher: Brightlynx

Not all desires are shiny and sweet—and the dark ones might change you forever… 

It’s not the kind of obsession a tough Army guy can admit to—a jones for Ava, the pretty-princess pop star. Not just her body, the perfect product that sells all those magazines. Her music. 

The critics call her human lip gloss, all style and no substance. To Joe Ivanchan, Ava is the exact blend of reality and fantasy that he can tolerate, the closest he’s willing to get to giving his heart after the injury and breakdown that got him out of the service. 
But Ava is real. She’s a flesh and blood woman with a publicity machine and an album deadline, along with a whole team of handlers paid to shellac a pristine sheen over a damaged, desperate soul. A woman with fears, with secrets, with desires. 

When Joe finds himself in an interview to join her security team as her driver, his instinct is to get away. But the woman behind Ava’s carefully focus-grouped image is even harder to walk away from. The angry needs tormenting her speak to something within Joe. Something empathetic, protective—and primal… 

Besides, even a falling star can light up the darkest night.

Shooting Star by Jeffe Kennedy is a story you may need to take in stride. These characters had to grow on me. I wasn't too keen on either of them in the beginning. Joe seemed skeezy and Ava seemed like the stereotypical child star all grown up, but as the story progresses, they learn about each other and themselves, and really do some major character growth. I love Arlin. These characters need Arlin. We all need Arlin. He helps them cope with their pasts. There were moments that felt a little too fast and forced, but everything flowed nicely for the most part. It wasn't exactly what I was expecting, but it was entertaining.
