#BLAST, #REVIEW, and #GIVEAWAY: Falling Star by Laura DeLuca


Drew DiPalma feels like he's living a lie. He's had it with his Hollywood persona, the high-maintenance women, and his sleazy agent. To escape the madness, he flees to a tourist town he'd often visited as a child. He never expected to find love on that little island. Then he stumbles upon Lainey alone on the swing set of a deserted beach. After a dozen internet dating disasters, Lainey Riccardo has given up on romance--until she meets a West Coast hunk who has no trouble winning her heart. But Lainey only knows him as Drew, not the Oscar-nominated actor who's constantly scandalized in the tabloids. When she learns the truth, will the small town Jersey girl be able to accept Drew's fast-paced life? Or will the truth drive her away forever?


REVIEW: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I've read other books from Laura DeLuca, and am always fascinated at how well she can present a story. Even though I've never been to South Jersey, and do have a rather typical idea of what Jersey is like, she has painted a whole different scene in my head about what South Jersey really looks and feels like.
The story line was rather typical, overworked, over-stressed Hollywood star runs away to a small town where no one seems to recognize him, and he gets to live a few blissful months under the radar where he falls in love with a small-town girl.Eventually the secret is going to come out, and when it does, it does with typical flash and drama.
Despite the story line being typical, the author write it so exceptionally well that I fell in love with Lainey and Drew. I rooted for them every step of the way, and hoped the story line would be different. Happy endings are always good though, it's how the author gets us to those happy endings that make or break the story. Laura DeLuca definitely made it a winner. I can't wait to read the next in this series.
