The first novel in the sizzling new Stargazer series about a public relations firm, the stars they represent, and everything they’d rather keep private.
He said . . . She said.
Publicist Wendy Mann has always competed hotly with her rival Daniel Blackstone, but this time they’re headed for a collision. Wendy’s job is on the line if she doesn’t save the image of a spoiled young starlet who’s posting provocative pictures of herself all over the Internet in a snarky attempt at revenge on her former boyfriend. Daniel is representing the ex, a onetime teen heartthrob who never grew up. With the feuding Hollywood pair scheduled to appear on the same Las Vegas awards show, Daniel and Wendy are determined to do whatever it takes to defend their own clients.
Unfortunately, the chemistry between Wendy and Daniel is even more explosive than that of their Hollywood stars. L-O-V-E was always a four-letter word for these two ultra-competitors; they never counted on the scorching heat that erupts between them. But Wendy’s high-gloss exterior hides a dark past—one that’s lurking behind the bright Vegas lights. Their careers are on the line, and so is Wendy’s life. . . .

"A fascinating set-up, sexy adventure, a hilarious heroine, and the perfect hero!"--USA Today bestselling author Victoria Dahl
"YA author Echols (Going Too Far) entertains with her first adult outing, a tale of dueling PR agents trying to save their clients from themselves. Wendy Mann's tough manner annoys her clients but gets results, even with stars bent on self-destruction. After an ungrateful and disgruntled band severs a contract with her agency, Wendy's on the verge of being fired--until a volatile teen actress requests her personally. But the teen star's feuding and washed-up heartthrob ex is represented by Daniel Blackstone, Wendy's college nemesis and now owner of a rival celebrity PR firm. If stars who like to urinate in public (Daniel's) and post pictures of their cleavage (Wendy's) were their only problems, this would be a lightweight tale, but mix in a disturbing threat from Wendy's past and the story soon takes a detour into nail-biting suspense. A neat wrap-up will satisfy fans of Hollywood stories and romantic suspense."--Publishers Weekly
"The heat stays cranked up to scalding."--Fiction Folio
"At the heart of any story by Jennifer Echols is a compelling romance, and the constant tension between her lead couple makes Star Crossed absolutely engrossing. . . . Frequently hilarious, sometimes stirring, and always enjoyable."--Single Titles
