Starry Eyed Love by Helena Hunting - ARC Review

Charming, hilarious, and emotional, Starry-Eyed Love is Helena Hunting at her very best!

Having just broken up with her boyfriend, London Spark is not in the mood to be hit on. Especially not when she’s out celebrating her single status with her sisters. So when a very attractive man pays for their drinks and then slips her his number, she passes it right back to him with a ‘thanks, but no thanks’. As the business administrator for their family’s event hotel, the Spark House, London has more important things to worry about, like bringing in new clientele.

As luck would have it, a multi-million-dollar company calls a few months later asking for a meeting to discuss a potential partnership, and London is eager to prove to her sisters, and herself, that she can land this deal. Just when she thinks she has nailed her presentation, the company’s CEO, Jackson Holt, walks in and inserts himself into the meeting. Not only that, but he also happens to be the same guy she turned down at the bar a few months ago.

As they begin to spend more time together, their working relationship blossoms into something more. It isn’t until their professional entanglements are finally over, that London and Jackson are finally ready to take the next step in their relationship. But between Jackson’s secretive past and London’s struggle with her sisters, London must question where she really stands - not just with Jackson, but with the Spark House, too.

Helena Hunting books are always fun, and they are always heartfelt with characters you adore and cheer for.  This one is no exception.  London is, with her 2 sisters, running Spark House, a family hotel and event space when the opportunity arises for her to partner with Holt Media, Jackson's company.

She doesn't know, at first (and neither does he) that he is the man who so charmingly hit on her a few months ago, right after she got out of a relationship.  She turned him down, he was sad, but respectful.

Once they realize who they each are, it's too late to do anything, as they have already entered into a business partnership and getting involved would be a bad idea...or would it?

Without going into too much of the plot, the way the author handles this is clever, and adorable, and snuck up on me as much as it did on the characters, which I loved.

This book, while hot and full of fabulous chemistry, is also a little tamer sexually than some of this author's other titles, and it feels like it's more focused on the relationships between the main characters, as well as with the secondary characters.

It's tough to talk about other parts of the title without getting into the details of the plot, so I will leave this here and say that I enjoyed and recommend this title.
