The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . . STARS IN THEIR EYES . . . This was a sweet historical romance that gave a glimpse into the lifestyle of those living in the twenties in silent-movie-time Paris. The city of light, love, and dreams. This was a world that still judge by the look of the skin and not the quality of character. The authenticity that was brought to life by this quick read was amazing. You got a chance to visit a world that felt full of the life, characters, and times of the 20s. Hollywood/movie industry racism of the times.

I would have liked to have this one be longer with more opportunity to get to know both Iris and Owen. I would have liked to see more depth in the secondary characters. Iris and Owen were allowed a second chance to explore the romance that was shut-down before it had a chance to gain frim roots and grow. The possible of a love-triangle, race issues in relationship and movie roles, and the history of the times allows for you to get a good grasp on what was being portrayed.

BLURB
This beautifully sweeping story of dueling ambitions and restless hearts in the roaring twenties will captivate fans who loved the romance of the Oscar-winning film La La Land and Paula McLain's bestselling novel The Paris Wife.

The bohemian salons and wild cabarets of 1920s Paris are just the place for Owen Matthews to pursue his writing and make the right connections in the literary scene. But six years after leaving Los Angeles and the love of his life, he still strives for success. Penning a new screenplay for his friend’s film might just help keep the lights on a bit longer in the City of Lights.

Iris Wong is used to sacrifice and rejection as an Asian-American actress. She’s determined to take full advantage of her new leading role in a Parisian silent film—and the director’s romantic interest in her. Playing the game almost guarantees she’ll be able to break through the industry’s racism and become the silver screen star she’s dreamed of being since she earned her first nickel as a Hollywood extra.

When these two star-crossed lovers unexpectedly reunite, they get a second chance to reconcile their hearts’ desires with their dreams of fame and fortune.
