ARC Review: Starry Eyed Love by Helena Hunting

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.

This is a fun story. London just ended a relationship with Mr. Wrong and doesn’t ever expect to find Mr. Right so when the hottest guy she’s ever seen approaches her in a bar to ask her out, she turns him down. Fast forward a few months and she gets an incredible opportunity to grow her family business by partnering with one of the biggest media companies in the country. She’s already a ball of nerves because of the pressures of running a business and the sacrifices she has to make in every aspect of her life to keep the business running smoothly. The last thing she needs is for the handsome stranger from the bar to walk in and introduce himself as the CEO. 

Jackson has never wanted anyone the way he wants London, but they have to work together, which makes her strictly off-limits. Too bad he can’t seem to help himself where she’s concerned. There are a lot of obstacles in their way, including their businesses and responsibilities, not to mention living halfway across the country from one another. Throw in a bitter ex, social media bullying and an otherwise sweet sister who periodically morphs into bridezilla and it’s a recipe for disaster.
