BRAND NEW from Mimi Strong, USA Today Bestselling author of For You, Borrowed Billionaire, and Her Teddy Bear.
She's a sassy bookstore manager, he's a famous actor. This Notting Hill-inspired New Adult romance is outrageous, funny, and full of sex, sex, sex.
Peaches Monroe, age 22, is a plus-sized beauty who spends quiet days with books, in the small town of Beaverdale, Washington.
One Saturday afternoon, she's balancing precariously on a chair, in a bridesmaid dress, when a handsome dark-haired man comes running into the bookstore. He knocks Peaches over, she lands in his muscular arms, they lock gazes, and ...
She recognizes him.
As the sexy vampire heartthrob she watches on TV every week.
Peaches and Dalton Deangelo are completely wrong for each other. He's only in town temporarily, working on an indie movie. She should stay away before she gets burned. He should stay away, too, before he opens up and shares all his secrets.
But they're drawn to each other. Dalton claims it's because they're made from the same stardust. He says a lot of dramatic things, but it's his carbohydrate-free perfect body and sexy touch that turns Peaches to Jell-O.
Will they be able to make it as a couple? How can a hot, famous actor like Dalton Deangelo be interested in a regular girl, much less a big girl, like Peaches Monroe? What's the press going to say when they find out?
Julie's 5 STAR Review!!
Petra (aka Peaches) met Dalton Deangelo in her bookstore, by accident really. Peaches has always been self-conscious of her body image, calling herself “pleasantly chubby”. Dalton is a TV/Movie star working on a film in her hometown. Once Peaches lays her eyes on Dalton, she calls him her angel. And fortunately he feels the same.
“You’re surrounded by light and goodness, and I want to bask in your arms, be in your presence.” – Dalton
Peaches has a great attitude, and a lot of sass, and that draws him in even further.
She is used to being alone and when he asks her out, she is utterly shocked. She feels no one could ever be serious enough to date her. Their connection is remarkable and she starts to feel things she only dreamed about.
“Let’s just be two souls tonight. Two souls who are made of stardust, and found their way back to each other, the way they were destined to be.” – Dalton
After bearing his secrets to her, she finds herself more drawn to him than ever. Then, she is offered the job of a lifetime and finds herself wanting a new beginning, and possibly a life with Dalton.
Upon visiting Dalton, she learns more about him, along with some things that can affect her future. Was Dalton playing her this whole time or can he seriously love her?
This book is one of those rare ones that will surprise you and you will be hooked. I love the witty comments that Peaches can always seem to come up with. Her attitude will leave you laughing. I would rate this book 5 stars and can’t wait to read more of this story, and I can happily say, I am Team Peaches!!!
About the Author~
Q. Where did the idea for We are Made of Stardust come from?
A. My favorite romantic movie is Notting Hill, and I think any of us who've worked a retail job have fantasized about our favorite actor walking through the door! I think this story has been in my head for years. Most people would get so nervous, they wouldn't even speak to the actor, so I needed a girl who could hold her own and then some. Along came Peaches. She doesn't see herself as a fun girl, but oh boy is she fun.
Q. How long does it take you to write a novel?
A. I wish I was one of those speedy authors who can write a full-length novel in one week, but it takes me about 5 weeks to complete a first draft of something as long and involved as We are Made of Stardust. Then I still have to do research and editing. I think the second novel in the series will go faster, as I know the characters better. I'm always working hard so my readers don't have to wait long
Q. Why do you self-publish?
A. I started self-publishing in 2011 when I couldn't find a publisher for my first novel, Charlie. (Written under my YA pen name, Dalya Moon.) That's when I first discovered the amazing indie community, with book bloggers and other fun authors such as the folks who hang out in the Kboards' Writers' Cafe. From then, there was no stopping me! Stardust is book #15 for me, and I'm having a lot of fun. Oh, it's stressful at times, and there are low moments, but those times are when you find out what you're made of. I think what keeps me grounded are the great friends I've made, and giving back to the indie community.
Q. Thong or granny panties?
A. I like a little coverage, but not so much that it sticks out above the waistband of my jeans.
Q. When people find out you write erotic romance, do they treat you like a freak?
A. Yes, but the cool people treat you like the right kind of freak. People already think I'm weird that I self-publish. Actually, most random acquaintances find the topic quite dull until I mention I write “dirty billionaire stuff,” which is why I usually keep it under my hat. It's hard for me to really cut loose if I'm thinking about people reading the books.
