Blog Tour: Review and Giveaway: Stars in Their Eyes by Pema Donyo

Stars in Their Eyes by Pema Donyo

Publication Date: September 18, 2017
Crimson Romance
eBook; 120 Pages
Genre: Historical Romance
This beautifully sweeping story of dueling ambitions and restless hearts in the roaring twenties will captivate fans who loved the romance of the Oscar-winning film La La Land and Paula McLain's bestselling novel The Paris Wife. The bohemian salons and wild cabarets of 1920s Paris are just the place for Owen Matthews to pursue his writing and make the right connections in the literary scene. But six years after leaving Los Angeles and the love of his life, he still strives for success. Penning a new screenplay for his friend’s film might just help keep the lights on a bit longer in the City of Lights. Iris Wong is used to sacrifice and rejection as an Asian-American actress. She’s determined to take full advantage of her new leading role in a Parisian silent film—and the director’s romantic interest in her. Playing the game almost guarantees she’ll be able to break through the industry’s racism and become the silver screen star she’s dreamed of being since she earned her first nickel as a Hollywood extra. When these two star-crossed lovers unexpectedly reunite, they get a second chance to reconcile their hearts’ desires with their dreams of fame and fortune. Sensuality Level: Behind Closed Doors

My Review

Stars in Their Eyes is a good, short historical by Pema Donyo. It deals with the early years of Hollywood, which I found fascinating. It was interesting to see the struggles the performers went through back then. The story was rather slow at times but did pick up quickly. I think I would have liked the story better if it was longer and I would have gotten to know the characters better. Maybe it would flowed more for me. I did like what I had read, just would have liked more. I hope to read a full length novel by this author in the future.

3 1/2 stars - worth a read.

I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
