Katiebird reviews Spotlight by Krista Richmond


Spotlight by Krista Richmond

Lily Richards loves a good story. As a journalist, she’s often writing one. As a fan, she’s often reading one—especially when it’s about her favorite celebrity.

The attention he generates fascinates her. As does the role her profession plays in creating the phenomenon that is actor Daniel Brighton. Are the media to blame for the way the paparazzi chase him? Do they provide too much information about his private life to obsessive fans? And are they the cause of all the madness surrounding Daniel’s rumored relationship with a certain former costar?

Personally, Lily would much rather report on Daniel’s latest role than on his latest dining companion. And a chance encounter with the star gives her the opportunity to prove she’s not like every other journalist, or every other “fangirl.”

Nate Brennan—Daniel’s publicist—isn’t convinced of Lily’s altruistic nature. His client’s sudden preference for the no-name columnist baffles him, and when he is forced to concede to Daniel’s wishes and work with her, their professional battles soon lead to personal sparks. While Daniel and Lily grow closer, Nate finds himself caught between mistrust and attraction.

As Lily’s career slowly transitions from the newsroom of her hometown paper to the online world of entertainment media, she must find a balance between the demands of the job and the personal relationships she now holds dear.

Is a photograph worth losing a friend?

Is her next story worth losing the man she loves?

She never knew it would be so hard, standing near the glare of the Spotlight . . .

If you are looking for a light romantic read for the summer, I think this is the book for you!

Illustrated Temptations: Captured by Jasinda and Jack Wilder + Signed Giveaway


I know, I know, it’s just Tuesday so why Gel are you flashing us your Illustrated Temptations post when it’s not Wednesday yet??? OH well, I can always make an exception for Jasinda & Jack Wilder, can’t I?! *wink* Having said that let me say CONGRATULATIONS to them because today is the release day of CAPTURED. It’s a stand-alone contemporary romance, set in the world of WOUNDED –which by the way is one of my favorite reads from Jasinda. So I’m a lucky girl to be gifted with an ARC of this book. It’s just right to show my gratitude with what I do best. 😉

What can I say, CAPTURED is just one of those incredible writings from Jasinda and Jack. It was an amazing journey filled with love, hope, forgiveness and second chances. Hard read? Yes, I guess, a bit.lol I’m not gonna deny that I’m a fan of those kind of books. It’s painful, hard to look at, gory, unnerving, heart breaking. But it’s also heart warming, passionate, romantic, steamy and HOT. And did I say HOT? Yeah! What else could you ask for? Pure bliss of emotions. That is all.

I LOVED this book. LOVED. I don’t have enough words to describe how freaking awesome the whole story was. And goodness, the way Jasinda and Jack wrote this is just unbelievably outstanding and remarkable. I won’t ever forget the images they paint in my head.  These two will surely make you cry. Most of all they will make you FEEL.
