Cassandra By Starlight Book Tour Review and Giveaway

Author: Susan Mac Nicol

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Suspense

Goodreads: Add to TBR list

Publisher: Boroughs Publishing Group

Purchase Links: Amazon

Book Blurb: Falling in love makes Cassie Wallace?s everyday and  normal life much more complicated that she?d ever thought it could be. Being an independent and somewhat unconventional woman, she?d never intended to fall head over heels for a handsome, charming and younger man, one who lived a life she?d only ever imagined before on the big screen.

But Bennett Saville, up and coming star of theatre and film and filthy rich to boot, was one such man. From the tips of his shiny Armani loafers to the auburn curls on his head, he turns Cassie?s world upside down. From their initial tragic meeting to the dangers that threaten them both as their relationship grows more intense, Cassie finds herself a willing participant in Bennett?s world. She learns about a life in show business and living with a man who is constantly on show to the world ? not to mention having to face the fact that women throw themselves at him with regular abandon.

Cassie embraces the challenges as only she can, in her usual feisty
fashion, lending humour and compassion to their developing relationship. And when violence and fear comes calling for them both, it takes the two of them to hold the dangers at bay and face the events together.

My Rant:
 Cassandra by Starlight was an interesting story. In the story Cassandra is tired of going on blind dates with men that are completely boring and who had a one-track mind. As she was driving home something crashed into her car, which changed the course of her life. What seems like a worse situation turned into a good one because that’s how Cassie met Bennett Saville, the Young sexy celebrity that was truly a romantic at heart.  Both character were confident and demanded the front scene of this story. I love the way Cassie and Bennett’s relationship developed within the story. The author just wrote the romance with ease, you grow with the characters as they are growing in love with each other and the intimate scenes were hotter than cayenne pepper. It was so heart warming… like having butterfly feeling in your tummy. Ok now I sound like a sap.  The plot has heart-pumping action, which was so unexpected, but a great addition to the book because it kept you engaged in the story.  The romance seemed to be so easy between Cassie and Bennett but it was also difficult at the same time. Both characters had to work through traumatic experiences, which touch me on so many levels. I laughed, cried and got down right upset but it’s those types of emotions that make for a good story.  I completely enjoyed the authors writing style, they way she painted this vivid story just kept me enthralled.I look forward to reading more of Ms. Nicol's work.

My Recommendation:

I rated this book 3 1/2 out 5 purple rant hearts. and would recommended this book to anyone that enjoys a good Contemporary Romance.
