Goodreads Summary:
Over one million “likes”—but only one of them matters.

After pop star Ryan De Luna praises Maisy Harrison’s YouTube cover of his classic hit, he offers Maisy and her fledgling band the opportunity of a lifetime: to be his opening act.

Music may be Maisy’s life, but she has one ground rule: never date a musician. That goes double for a heartbreaker like Ryan. If only she didn’t feel so vulnerable to his larger-than-life charm. And maybe now more than ever, when he asks for her help to shake off his playboy image. How can she resist playing the part of his fake girlfriend for the duration of the tour?

Ryan’s never met anyone like Maisy. She sees past all the star-studded fame and treats him like any other guy. And the more time they spend together, the more he finds himself falling for her. Now he’d like to make their imaginary fling an IRL thing. But can he convince her to take a chance and trust him with her heart?



Sariah Wilson is an author I discovered earlier this year thanks to a great friend (thank you Ambur!). I enjoyed her #Starstruck a lot more than I thought I would so of course I couldn't wait to get my hands on #Moonstruck.

One thing I thought I wouldn't have liked very much with #Moonstruck was the music aspect of the story. It's a trope that's a little overdone but going on tour with Ryan De Luna was amazing. Everything from the bus rides to the hotel stays to the unplanned getaways was fun. Some unexpected developments made quite the emotional ruckus but overall the trip was a great time.

I wasn’t a huge fan of Maisy and her lack of commitment but I give her credit for the complete transparency. She's been nothing but honest from the beginning with where she stood in regards to a relationship with Ryan. Because of that I cut her some slacks for all the times she frustrated me (which was often). The thing she does near the end of the book drove me mad. Her careless actions didn’t deserve the easy forgiveness but we all know Ryan's too good of a person to make her suffer for it. She's lucky.

Ryan wasn't exactly the perfect gentleman to Maisy when they first met but boy does he have the charms. He knows it and utilizes it well to get what he wants. We got to see his sweet and caring side as she slowly fell for him. Maisy doesn't make it easy but Ryan was always patient and understanding. I loved his maturity.

The romance in #Moonstruck was a tad on the tame side. I can see why given Maisy's firm stance on sex after marriage but it was still a shame there weren't more sexy times between her and Ryan. Not to say there weren't any steaminess because the kisses they shared were definitely hot ;)

Even though I didn't love #Moonstruck as much as its predecessor I'm still excited to experience more swoons from the author. I for sure need more #Lovestruck stories in my life!
