"After years at a top PR firm, Sophie Atwater is entrusted with representing handsome A-lister Billy Fox. She finds herself smitten when he proves to be just as charming as his image, and is taken aback when she realizes the attraction is mutual. Though she's happy with Jacob, her boyfriend of two years ("pretty much a record for me"), his ambivalence about marriage leaves her feeling doubtful, and Sophie exacerbates matters by picking fights with him while escalating her flirtation with Billy.

I didn't really like this book. The story line didn't grab me enough and by the end I was annoyed with the main character, Jodi.

As a huge 'Days of our Lives' fan, and of Sami Brady's in particular, how could I resist Sami's portrayer, Allison Sweeney's first novel, the effervescent and good-hearted The Star Attraction. Hollywood publicist extraordinaire, Sophie Atwater, lands a major client for her agency, in the form of Billy Fox, the next Brad Pitt, on the cusp of superstardom. How could she predict that one of her biggest career coups would do thoroughly disrupt her life in a soap opera scenario reminiscent of her author's alter ego.

Thoroughly entertaining, but with real heart, and a delightfully relatable heroine in Sophie, The Star Attraction is a behind-the-scenes look at the antics of the Hollywood elite as seen through the eyes of a publicist to the stars. Allison Sweeney has created a quick and enjoyable summer read, that makes you cringe at its heroines missteps, and cheer when she surmounts the obstacles around her
