Author: Becky Wicks
Summary: 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 Thoughts: This book was graciously given to me through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
This is my first Becky Wicks book and I am hooked. Sign me up for the fan club, give me the club card and teach me secret hand cause I’m all in!
The story of Chloe and Noah growing up is just so cute! I love how well it was written and how these two are so aware of each other but neither willing to bring it up in fear of losing this friendship and person they love. I found that unique; quite often childhood friends turned romance is where one is longing for the other. With this not being the case I found cheering for them and yelling at their stupidity (yes I verbally berated them while reading) enjoyable!
Both characters are lovable and stubborn! Noah’s struggles felt real and honest. His journey as he struggled climbing the complicated social politics of celebrity fame were perfect! Everything just felt so real and honest and I could not get enough of them! And the Peter Pan references! Those killed me, in the best way! They were so adorable and just really solidified the connection these two have and how much their lives have been weaved together.
I will be picking up the next book in this series Before He Was Gone. And I am crazy excited about what Becky Wicks comes out with!
