Love in LA just got a whole lot hotter!
One woman. Three men. Some things are best kept secret.
“Hands down the best reverse harem I’ve ever read!” Goodreads Reviewer M. Simmons
When Creslyn Knight auditions for the role of a life time, she never expects three things:
1. To know the casting director—intimately.
2. To be insanely attracted to the three stand-in actors at the audition.
3. That she’d soon be putting her morals to the test when her resolve weakens.
Acting is in Creslyn’s blood, and she’s focused her sights on one thing: landing the role of a lifetime. But she’s always been told that everything comes at a cost. The casting director names his when he tells her she must make him believe she can surrender to a harem of men, or he can’t justify giving her the lead role.
Determined to prove him wrong and show him she can tap into a passion that deep, Creslyn throws herself into rehearsals. But the fine line between script and reality soon starts to blur, leading her and three men into unchartered territory. The only problem? She has a jealous roommate, a disgruntled mother, and a string of paparazzi hot on her trail, making Creslyn question the cost of everything.
In a world where some things are best kept secret, is the price of fame too high when it comes to the heart?
The Stars in Her Eyes is book one of the Love in LA Quartet and is a new adult, steamy contemporary romance reverse harem LOVE STORY that can be read as a stand-alone or as an introduction to the series. All the heat you’ve come to expect with a reverse harem, AND a storyline worthy of a contemporary romance love story. Finally, the best of both worlds!

Matías was prompt, she’d give him that. When Creslyn opened the door, flustered from her phone call with River and still slipping in her earrings, her jaw nearly hit the floor. She thought Matías in a tight T-shirt was hot—but it had nothing on Matías in a navy blue BOSS suit.
Matías was leaning against the door frame, the slightest twitch of his lips lifted into what could only be considered as a “how-you-doing” smile—slightly cocky, a hundred percent justified.
“Hey,” Creslyn breathed out, her eyes fixated on the dark, sensuous eyes warmly caressing her body.
“Turn for me.” It was half request, half command, but Creslyn was lost in his voice, his eyes. She would’ve done just about anything he asked of her in that moment as heat crackled between them.
She spun slowly in her short black and white pinstripe dress—a modern take on the tuxedo dress, with a belted waist and low-cut front. A tiny bit of her sparkling black, silver, and diamond bodysuit peeped out from the top, her breasts strategically lifted and separated by her favorite “going out” bra. She knew her cleavage was on point and appreciated the way Matías couldn’t take his eyes off her. When she completed her slow turn, his gaze was drawn to her strappy black- and crystal-embellished heels. They were open-toed, showing off her fresh pedicure, with high, zippered backs and a cuff that wrapped around her ankle and showcased her toned legs.
“Damn, girl.” He ran his hand over his head, raising his eyes slowly up her bare legs to the bottom of her dress. “Creslyn . . . man. You look”—he bit the corner of his lip—“insanely gorgeous.”
He didn’t seem like a man who would be at a loss for words, but he was sure taking his time finding them tonight. “Thank you,” she said, beaming. “You a foot man?”
Matías had the grace to flush, his dimples coming out. “I might be. Why?”
She reached her hand out, taking hold of his navy blue tie as she tugged him closer. “You seem particularly interested in my shoes tonight,” she whispered, her lips grazing his ear.
“That’s because they can only be worn by a woman who is extremely confident and knows her worth. There’s something so incredibly sexy about that. Not everyone could pull off those heels, Cres. It makes me want to slide them off your feet and do incredibly naughty things with your toes.” He leaned in, nuzzling the crevice of her neck and making her skin race with goose bumps.
“There are naughty things you can do with my toes?”
“There are naughty things I can do with every part of your body if you let me.”
