REVIEW: Child Star (Part 1) by JJ McAvoy


CHILD STAR is a novel told in three parts. Each part is about 25,000 – 30,000 words.
**This is CHILD STAR: Part 1** 
Amelia London is America's sweetheart. Noah Sloan is America's bad boy. Both are former child stars and once were lovers. When they are cast as the leads in the upcoming erotic suspense blockbuster—Sinners Like Us—they are forced to come to terms with the issues that tore them apart to begin with. 
As the whole world watches, can they keep their secrets hidden? After all, everybody is a sinner… 
***Read all three parts of J.J. McAvoy’s extraordinary new adult romantic suspense novel – CHILD STAR – and look for the full book, which will be released as an ebook and a paperback***

I wanna kick myself for not playing close attention to the release of this new series by JJ; hence, I missed the ARC request window. But it’s all good; the series is out now as a complete one so no need to wait, whew!

This new series by JJ is about 2 former child stars, Noah and Amelia, who are now all grown up. They were a couple in their young days, but just like some young relationship, and a famous one at that, something happened. 10 years later, almost a has-been status later, they both get the chance to star in a movie racier than what they’ve ever done, especially for Amelia. Right from the get-go, their chemistry shines, something JJ is really good at. Smokin’!

Reading this, I can almost imagine this is probably what Dakota Johnson felt like when first cast as Anastasia Steele. I can’t help it. Furthermore, it almost felt like it’s a parody and homage at the same time to a certain book genre and its fan base. No, it wasn’t done in a condescending way, not at all. Heck, if I really think about it, I can almost imagine JJ's other book characters in the movie characters that she's set up. It’s like seeing it from a different angle, that’s all. 

In few pages, JJ gave me an idea of who Noah and Amelia are, and what they mean to each other. Really layered characters, I thought. And seeing this is a serial, bk 1 ends on a “Wuuut?!!?” note.

Book 2&3, I’m coming for ya, for certain!!!

Thanks for dropping by!
