I think after the emotional intensity of Outlander and Game of Thrones finishing, I just needed something light-hearted and easy. And this fit into that need perfectly.
It had the girl at the lowest point in her life having a chance meeting with a famous actor who she doesn’t even know exists. He falls for her quiet beauty and the fact that she doesn’t know who he is. Romance blossoms. He stuffs it up royally in an attempt to protect her from his world.
And of course, the grand gesture and pursuit to make it all work out in the end. But what I loved about this gesture was that he did the little things that count. Not some big grand showy thing that money buys. He did things that were meaningful to her.
Why can’t more guys be like this?
I definitely needed this break in something uplifting before jumping into the next book, coz that’s another heavy one. So this was a great break, quick, easy win for me that just worked on so many levels for me. Including the fact that the writing just felt so natural that I didn’t feel like anything was forced.

Straight off the bat I loved Christian Slade. I thought he was charming and an absolute sweetheart. He made me laugh with his matter of fact ways and how he handled his fame sometimes. There are moments when you'd think he should be coming across obnoxious like when he white-lies when trying to live a normal life and does crazy things to try and keep his identity under wraps (like swapping his Ferrari for a Tesla) but honestly he just comes across endearing and funny. I smiled and giggled so much and loved his banter with his personal assistant and how she just accepted his ways. There really was just something so sweet and lovely about him that I enjoyed. He worked hard for his money, loved acting and wasn't just in it to be famous and I thought that was very cool.
Lana I thought was awesome too. I envied her smarts and thoroughly loved reading about her job as a scientist. She had such a down to earth sweet nature, but I loved that Christian bought her to life, made her have fun and step out of her comfort zone a little bit, while still remaining true to who she was.
I very much enjoyed that Christian and Lana were with each other through the good and bad. They accepted each other for who they were and I liked that they both owned up to their mistakes and didn't just blame each other. They fought for each other and worked on making their different lifestyles fit together which was beautiful too. Their banter and adventure was so much fun to be a part of.
There's a delightful element of glitz and glamour mixed in with the coziness of settling down and living a more peaceful life which makes 'To the Stars and Back' such a wonderful read.
Lana is an eco-friendly rocket scientist Professor who doesn't watch TV. After catching her fiance and her best friend having an affair in a hotel she is having a bit of a weep in the janitor's closet when the World's Sexiest Man, actor Christian Slade also decides to hide from the paparazzi in the same closet. Intrigued by a woman who has no idea who he is, Christian is smitten but can romance really flourish between a Hollywood superstar and a down-to-earth 'normal' woman?
This was a sweet and engaging romance, even better it was a Kindle freebie.
