A showplace for talent. A playground for love. STARSTRUCK. A new contemporary continuity series by Beth Ciotta, Cynthia Valero, and Elle J Rossi. Three authors. One world. Launching with Ciotta’s sexy novella—Obsessed.

A Fallen Star…

A hot-mess of controversy and scandal, Dakota Breeze—tarnished pop star of fading fame and fortune—accepts a friend’s offer, taking refuge in a small Midwestern town in order to rehearse her comeback concert in secret. Starstruck is the perfect venue however rehearsals are marred by Dakota’s reluctance to resurrect her former bad-girl persona and complicated by an anonymous death threat.

A Haunted Bodyguard…

Enlisted by a mutual friend, Wyatt MacDermott—a seasoned protection specialist—agrees to act as Dakota’s temporary bodyguard. Forced to set aside a personal grudge in order to fulfill his duties, Mac’s stunned by his fierce and instant attraction to the reckless celebrity he’s long associated with his greatest regret.

Obsessed with conflicting needs and united passion, Dakota and Wyatt spin out of control, indulging in a whirlwind affair and tempting an avenger’s wrath.


I for one am so excited that Beth Ciotta is venturing out with her wonderful story telling and giving her readers a different side of her with first the Impossible Dreams Series and now OBSESSED, the first in the Starstruck Novella Series with Ellie J Rossi and Cynthia Valero.  

OBSESSED was a quick read that introduces us to a sexy Bodyguard for hire and a washed up pop princess that is more than meets the eye.  I often feel bad for pop singers gone wrong, and Ciotta really was able to get into the mind and body of what these young ladies might be feeling, thinking and going through when trying to make a comeback.  So kudos to you Beth.....I was totally in the story like I was experiencing it all myself!

The romance between Wyatt and Dakota/Lucy was lightening fast, but nonetheless romantic, and explosive, like that first kiss you experienced with the guy you have been crushing on...yeah...that kind of explosive!  I enjoyed the little bit of mystery and the side story with Wyatt's sister was very realistic!

OBSESSED makes for a Fun afternoon read!
