Reach for a Star, Kathryn Freeman

Reach for a Star, Kathryn Freeman

Reach for a Star by [Freeman, Kathryn]

Genre: romance, humour

I loved Kathryn’s Before You, so when I saw this I was keen to read it. I have a weakness for the fame/ordinary person trope and this sounded perfect.
I really enjoyed it, but it didn’t quite have that five star magic for me. Michael was a wonderful man, and his loneliness, at the top of his career, his desire for something more, was clear. Until he met Jessie though he didn’t realise himself how he felt, and as he started to develop feelings for her he was also aware of his past where emotions were concerned. I so loved him, he was the perfect lead.
Jessie I really liked at first but I did get tired of her on/off/on feelings, doubts yes, but poor Michael really got put through the mill with her and he had the patience of a saint to put up with it all. I did understand her feelings about her family, but she was making decisions for Michael rather than talking through them.
Georgina – I had such high hopes for a really good B itch type and she started well but, well, I so love the chaos people like her bring to a romance but she didn’t. Works for others, left me a little disappointed though 😦
There is some great humour here, not in your face forced stuff, but subtle and funny. One bit got me though “damn it she was thirty six not sixty three. She didn’t want slippers. What she wanted was knock-em dead Louboutins” I’m not far off 63, I want Louboutins too, not slippers 😉
Her friend, her Ex and the boys were terrific side characters and added so much to the story, made it feel real. I like books that are rounded, not just single plot.
What if your dreams were so close you could reach out and touch them?
How could anyone resist Michael Tennant, with his hypnotic blue eyes and voice like molten chocolate? Jessie Simmons certainly can’t. But Jessie’s a single mum who can’t sing to save her life – there’s no way she’ll ever cross paths with the star tenor.

At least that’s what she thinks until she’s unexpectedly invited to take part in a new reality TV show. The premise? Professional singers teach hopeless amateurs how to sing. The surprise? Jessie’s partner is none other than Michael Tennant!

As she becomes better acquainted with the man behind the voice, will Jessie find out the hard way that you should never meet your idols? Or will she get more than she bargained for?
Stars: Four, a fascinating read, bring in life in a very personal way.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
