The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of Hollywood Stardust series. . .
Typecast . . . brought me into the world of Hollywood Stardust. A man out of place and time but needs to get back in to set it all to rights. Logan has to step in where he does not want to be. While Ivy wants badly to be in where she was not comfortable. In front of the camera. 

With her interactions with Logan behind the scenes Ivy begin to realize that she is open and can freely express herself, but only with Logan. Teen crush aside. Movie idle aside. Sexual chemistry open the door. 

Ivy and Logan sends the rating makers running for new markings. 

Limelight . . . flashback to the hero and heroine of this highly popular movie 20 years ago. Now, Drew (Issac) and Erin are not who they were then but have they really changed that much. Time can open doors that were closed and close doors that were open. Drew knew how to close down his feeling and move on. Make a new life. Now 20 years later he's not so sure of staying closed. 

Erin has never really been what she projected to be. She had to protect herself the only way she knew how. Now years later and with the anniversary coming up she has to make some decisions.

If you are not looking to be emotionally involved in this read. Then move on. You will need tissue and time to absorb, cry and any other emotion that will be evoked. 

Supporting Roles . . . does not always mean forgettable.

Overall, I found each of them to bleed into the next one. Each one was supporting to the overall experience of the one that came after it. I highly recommend that they are all read in order and as close together as you can possibly get them.
