✯✯5 Finding Beautiful Stars!!✯✯
I have been waiting for what seems like ages for this book to appear on my kindle. The synopsis had my hooked. The wait was worth it. Debra wrote such a story. She had me on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading trying to figure out what was going to happen next.
Abby Murphy is at the top of her singing career. She loves what she's doing. Abby loves being on stage and loves her fans so much she'll never say no to an autograph or picture. Abby can not stand how her mother manages her career. Everything her mother does is all about money. She never puts Abby's thoughts or wishes into consideration. As long as her mother made money off Abby then she was happy. Her mother even hooked her up with a guitarist. Abby and Shawn were the "it" couple. There was only 2 people in Abby live that really cared and looked out for her. Sophie her assistant and best friend and her head bodyguard Danny Nucci.
Things were going just fine. Util Abby walked in and caught Shawn cheating on her. Abby couldn't take it anymore. Abby told Shawn she was done once and for all and to kick rocks. Shawn was beyond livid. He wasn't going to let her go. Not because he loved her but because he saw his fame go with it.
Danny is an ex-Marine and now owns his own security business. He will not let anything or anybody get near or hurt Abby. Danny had failed in the past. Didn't see all the signs because he was too close. Abby is beautiful on the outside and the inside. He refuses to act on his feelings.
Abby has a tour to finish up. She can only trust Danny and Sophie 100%. Everybody else in her life can not be trusted completely. But, she insists on living her life the same way she always has. Danny's gut keeps telling him not a good idea.
Abby has strong feelings for Danny. She's not sure how to handle them. Every time she thinks the feelings might be mutual he'll say something that makes her feel like she's just a job. If that wasn't bad enough. Things with Shawn and her mom start to get out of hand. Abby, Sophie and Danny don't know which way is up anymore. Danny gets his marine friend Connor to come in and help out. They're the only 3 people Abby can trust.
Danny won't let anything happen to Abby. He will hold his feelings in if it keeps Abby safe. Abby must keep her feelings for Danny to herself even if Sophie sees it ;) She must keep acting as her life is normal and that there aren't people out to get her. Abby must figure out how to live her life the way Abby wants and not her mother.
Once I picked up this book I couldn't put it down. It did not feel like a debut book. Debra's writing was beautiful. There was romance, suspense and mystery I kept saying to myself "What's going to happen next" "Can Abby and Danny handle anymore" and the most was "KISS ALREADY" LOL. I loved seeing that they had an honest and trusting friendship. One that they really cared about. I think these two would of stayed friends forever if that not loosing the other one. They cared so deeply for each other.Sophie and Connor were such great friends to Abby and Danny.
Both Danny and Abby learned a lot about themselves in this situation. Danny had stuff from his past to deal with. It has been haunting him for too long. Abby had to learn to put her foot down and think for herself. In order for them to be 100% happy they had their own battles to fight. But, if they had each other next to them. It just might be possible.
You must pick up this book like yesterday. I'm hoping there's more to this series. It could be more to Abby and Danny or Sophie and Connor. Anyway I will be happy. Because, it was that good. I'd laugh, hold my breath, cringe and tear up for Abby and Danny. Debra outdid herself for her debut book. I'm really excited to see what she's going to write next!
