Before He Was Famous (Starstruck #1) by Becky Wicks
Release Date: 29 May 2014
One guy, one girl. One in the spotlight. One in the shadows.
Falling in love with your best friend isn’t always a great idea, especially when he’s Noah Lockton - the sexiest, most famous new talent on the planet. When 21-year-old small-town photographer Chloe Campbell is offered the chance of a lifetime – to join her celebrity childhood friend Noah on tour as an exclusive blogger for a New York magazine – she’s certain both have put what happened four years ago behind them. But his eyes still burn; his voice is still a jackhammer to her heartstrings; all his songs are about her. Is it possible that that night still haunts them both?
The music industry is a machine, spinning hype and rumors as much as his records. It’s not just Noah’s girlfriends who’ve got it in for Chloe (there’s no stopping the Twitter-obsessed, cat-loving pop-star Courtney Lentini for starters). Pretty soon, the jealousy and media frenzy surrounding these so-called-friends takes a life-changing turn and it seems making love means making enemies at every turn. When tragedy threatens to pull the final curtain on their relationship, both Chloe and Noah must make a choice. As much as this world leaves them starstruck, is living their dream really worth living without each other?
A story of lifelong friendships, love and hope, set in a world of celebrity, fame and social media gone very, very wrong.
From International Bestselling HarperCollins Author, Becky Wicks, comes a new adult romance that will leave you starstruck.

My Opinion 5 STARS

This is a fabulous book, and I was so upset when it ended as I wanted to read MORE. Needless to say it got read in just one sitting, whilst asking my husband not to talk to me.
The book is really well written and has you wondering what its really like for the winners of reality show winners and those around them as the media and the fans go out of control.
Its a friends to lovers book, that again, is written so well, you really imagine thats its happening right before your eyes. It may have taken the pair time to actually get together, but they needed the right time to realise their feelings and, well, to be single at the same time.
This is certainly an author I will be looking out for as I have a feeling that I will love all of her books :)
REALLY looking forward to reading more...
