Publisher's Summary

Her future's so bright, she's gotta wear shades!

Kat Jennings and Scott Murphy don't just play two people who are secretly in love on a television sitcom - they are actually head over heels for each other in real life. When the lines between reality and TV land blur, they hope they can keep their relationship under wraps. But when Kat's grandmother, an eccentric star from Hollywood's golden age, mistakes their on-screen wedding proposal for the real deal, things begin to spiral out of control. Will their secret be front-page news in the tabloids? And can their budding romance survive the onslaught of paparazzi, wedding preparations, and misinformed family members?

From the soundstage to a Beverly Hills mansion to the gleaming Pacific Ocean, Stars Collide takes you on a roller-coaster tour of Hollywood, packing both comedic punch and tender emotion. If you want more of Bella, DJ, Brock Benson, and other favorite characters from Janice Thompson, you'll love the Backstage Pass series.

    "Sweet Christian Love Story"

    This is a fun and enjoyable book! I found myself smiling a lot throughout the story. The characters were well developed and their faith shown through.

    This is definitely one of the nicest Hollywood love stories I have ever heard. The two main characters co star on a TV show and fall in love on screen and in real life!!!

    There are a few twists and turns. The grandmother was funny and everyone was so patient with her. The whole story was very uplifting. There are Bible verses intertwined throughout the story.

    The narrator did a great job bringing the story to life. I always enjoy a HEA ending!

    "Great Book!"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book, this is the first book in the Backstage Pass series written by Janice Thompson and narrated by Julie Lancelot. Kat Jennings and Scott Murphy don't just play two people who are secretly in love on a television sitcom - they are actually head over heels for each other in real life. When the lines between reality and TV land blur, they hope they can keep their relationship under wraps. But when Kat's grandmother, an eccentric star from Hollywood's golden age, mistakes their on-screen wedding proposal for the real deal, things begin to spiral out of control.

    The narrator Julie Lancelot did a wonderful job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end.

    If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.

    "Cute story aside from the preaching."
    Would you try another book from Janice Thompson and/or Julie Lancelot?

    I honestly couldn't finish this. I wasn't aware that it had such a deeply religious undertone, and that is not my style.


    Has Stars Collide turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Julie Lancelot?

    Julie did a good job.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The author was very descriptive, the grandmother, while having her own aging issues, was such an endearing character it almost made up for the rest.


    Any additional comments?

    I was given a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

    I've rarely met an audio book I didnt like. I love rom-com, cozy murder mystery, and self-help.

    "A great Christian love story"
    Which character – as performed by Julie Lancelot – was your favorite?

    I love Grandmother Worth, she was the best character throughout the whole book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Grandma's bouts of dimentia


    Any additional comments?

    I wouldn't mind follow up stories with Rex and Grandma, and maybe the writer that doesn't think there is anyone out there for her. This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBoom

    Stars Collide: Backstage Pass, Book #1

    A sweet, funny, yet clean story of a Hollywood family type tv show. The two stars are secretly in love on the show and eventually in real life too. The female protagonist lives with here Grandma, an actress from old time Hollywood. The Grandma has early Alzheimer's and confuses TV from real life. The story spins around and there are even a big secret reveal towards the end.


    The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed by Julie Lancelot.

    "Light-Hearted Wholesome Christian Romance"
    Any additional comments?

    Very clean sweet love story. You can listen to this without your earbuds and not worry about any content you would not want overheard.

    The story is about 2 people who star in a T.V. show and fall for each other in real life. Kat and Scott's relationship develops slowly. The story starts out slow then picks up about halfway through.

    For me the best character in the book is Kat's grandmother, Lenora Worth and her backstory where Rex is concerned. Although the ending is pretty easy to figure out very early on it was interesting to hear it play out. It does take a while to decide if Lenora is really ill or if she is just crazy like a fox in manipulating situations to get her desired outcome.

    Julie Lancelot did a good job with the narration.

    "An Enticing Read!"

    The narrator is an excellent choice for the book! She made it really easy to follow along with that was happening. The plot had it's ups and downs but kept me wanting to listen even more. I look forward to reading the other books in the series.

    "Lots of prayers and blushing"

    This was a wholesome story. I enjoyed the characters, especially the grandma. I haven't really read Christian fiction before, and didn't realize this was Christian fiction when I signed up to receive a copy from Audiobook Blast. I did like it though. It was wholesome and sweet. I think it progressed well and liked seeing the romance develop.
    The narrator did a great job. I hope to hear her again.
