Catching A Shooting Star (1)

A cleaner, a football player, and a drug scandal… who said wishes don’t come true?

Social misfit Jessamy James pays the bills with a cleaning job so she can do what she really loves—tell stories to children. When she meets NFL superstar Nathan Powell while scrubbing unknown substances from his kitchen floor, Jess is as wary as she is confused. Never has she met a man with so much trust in the world, and he’s never met anyone he couldn’t charm. Outwardly, they’re complete opposites, but Nathan is intrigued by Jess’s reclusive attitude, and she’s drawn to his open personality. The attraction between them is inevitable.

When Nathan is dragged into a drug scandal, Jess is caught up in the media storm and finds her own vocation slipping through her fingers. As they struggle to clear his name and rescue both their careers, Jess and Nathan discover that sometimes all you can do is wish upon a shooting star.

REVIEW

A play on a Cinderella romance – she’s a house cleaner, he’s a famous football star. Catch a Shooting Star is a different read from the normal sports romance reads. The lead male character was a bit off-putting to me as he comes across as absolutely hopeless around the house, on the verge of not being able to take care of himself, and very naïve and too trusting for his famous personality.  I did like the strong personality of Jess and she has a past to overcome. She comes across as a tough chick with tattoos and piercings, but she’s also insecure hiding behind her appearance that she uses as a shield. Catch a Shooting Star is not a bad read, it’s actually kind of sweet.  I guess I just prefer a more confident, dominant lead male character in my romance reads. I think young/new adult readers would enjoy this.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Louisa Masters started reading romance much earlier than her mother thought she should. While other teenagers were sneaking out of the house, Louisa was working out how to read romance novels without being discovered. As an adult, she feeds her addiction in every spare second, only occasionally tearing herself away to do things like answer the phone and pay bills. She lives in Melbourne, Australia, where she whines about the weather for most of the year while secretly admitting she’ll probably never move.
