"Meet Josephine Foster, or Zo Jo as she’s called in the biz. The best pint-sized photographer of them all, Jo doesn’t mind doing what it takes to get that perfect shot, until she’s sent on an undercover assignment to shoot Ned Hartnett—teen superstar and the only celebrity who’s ever been kind to her—at an exclusive rehabilitation retreat in Boston. The money will be enough to pay for Jo’s dream: real photography classes, and maybe even quitting her paparazzi gig for good. Everyone wants to know what Ned’s in for. But Jo certainly doesn’t know what she’s in for: falling in love with Ned was never supposed to be part of her assignment."

After reading the synopsis for this book, I knew I had to read it. For sure, this book did not disappoint me. 

What I loved most about this book is the plot line. You have a great character who life is about to change through simply seeing things from a whole other view. I really adore how with each new chapter, Jo view is changed from what she thought she knew. She gains so much knowledge not only about herself but about others around her.

I adored the characters. The main character Jo, did so much growing up before the readers eyes. I admire her selflessness in what she had to do. Even if it meant giving up the one thing she wanted. The minor characters played a bigger part than what I thought. I am very happy that even the minor characters played a bog role in the end.

The love interest is one that will surprise the readers.  The switch that caught me by surprised was a very good idea! I did not see that coming at me at ALL! Totally made me gasp, but nicely done. Once I settled into the book again, I was taken away by the love that grew between them. 

Shooting Stars provides a wonderful story with true love. Capturing the romantic essence mixed with great writing, the reader can fall into the book easily. Shooting Stars is an light-hearted story that anyone can read.

I give it 5 BITES!

Happy Reading!


  1. I'm glad you enjoyed this book, there were just some aspects of Jo's reoccurring thought that started to make my scale tip about her but I did enjoy reading what you had to say about the story. Thanks for the review!

  2. I had seen this on Netgalley but haven't seen too many reviews on it. Glad that you enjoyed it. Sounds like a change up from what I'm use to reading =)
