scheming actresses, control-freak PR crews, and a pesky little thing called
love ruin the best (fake) relationship of my life?
Heart Throb by Katie McCoy is a fun read featuring Jax and Penny. Jax is the playboy Hollywood star who needs to clean up his image and Penny is the perfect woman to help him do this.
This was a fun story because Penny went all in trying to keep boundaries as she played the “fake girlfriend.” I know this story is so cliche, but it’s really well done. The characters are likable and well rounded. Both Jax and Penny have their issues and obstacles they have to overcome. Heart Throb is the third book in the series, but I don’t feel like I missed anything by not reading the previous books in the series. Some of the previous characters were added into this book, but they added to the depth of the story, rather than making it more confusing or making me feel like I missed out on something.
Heart Throb is a fun read with very likable characters. I recommend it even if you are new to the All Stars Series.
