Hollywood meets Pity Falls

Stuck by Logan Chance

stuck

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I read the blurb of Stuck and realised it would involve not only a Hollywood movie star but also a “step-sibling” trope … but with Logan Chance at the helm I knew that any reservations I had would be blown away by a well written story with two very appealing characters. Ethan Hale is an overnight success as a major movie star now with a few films under his belt and when his dad decides to marry a woman from a little town called Pity Falls in Montana, it seems Ethan will be getting a step sister… he just doesn’t count on this being the sassy, sweet and caring Nova Sparks.

I loved that this story told the real – and kind of depressing – side of being a big star, especially when it comes to the paparazzi and their intrusion into a famous person’s everyday life. What Ethan deals with in a day to day basis – and what so many famous stars have to deal with – I do not envy them at all!! And yet, Logan manages to portray this “uglier side” of fame with respect and authenticity, as well as getting a few laughs as well. The way Nova deals with the paparazzi as well is nothing short of awesome – it’s authentic for a “nobody” like her and it’s even a little sad when you see just how ruthless these camera-wielding, story-hungry people can be.

But at its heart, Stuck is a slow burn romance about two people who are so attracted to one another but don’t know how they can make any kind of relationship work when they are in very different places in their lives and careers. But reading the to and fro, seeing the sparks fly and the chemistry burn hot … it’s a fantastic story between Ethan and Nova, as they both come to realise exactly what is important and who is worth ending up stuck with 😉
