Competing With The Star (The Star Series Book 2)


Hadley Daniels’s life seems perfect…

Before the beginning of sophomore year of high school, Hadley and her family move to a beautiful beach town, where she makes amazing new friends and lands the boyfriend of her dreams—Nick Jenkins. He’s the kind of guy every girl swoons over, and it isn’t long until Hadley discovers some are still swooning.

A famous ex-girlfriend makes matters more complicated…

After some time dating, Hadley and Nick form a deep bond. But insecurity sets in when Hadley discovers her boyfriend once had a huge crush on her friend—who just happens to be the beautiful former teen TV star, Simone Hendrickson.

The past is the past—or so they say…

Hadley confronts Nick, who confesses about his history with Simone. Though he claims to only have eyes for Hadley now, it’s hard to believe—especially when she’s blindsided with the news that Nick and Simone kissed after school.

Now Hadley must determine who is telling the truth. Love, betrayal, friendship…who needs soap opera drama when you’re busy competing with a star?



“I really love this author and these characters. The greatest thing about her books is that she has this wonderful ability to let you hear her main character’s inner dialogue. The story gives you so much insight into the minds of teenage girls and makes you realize that deep down, everyone has the same insecurities and everyone goes through the same things in life. Despite these insecurities and fears, the main character stands up for herself. This is such an important message for teen girls! You can be smart, and strong, and brave even if you don’t always feel that way on the outside. I would recommend this book to anyone.” by Laura Turner

“This is the second book in this series. Hadley met Simone, a former teen TV star, in the first book. She also met Nick, who confused her. At the beginning of this book, they are just starting to date and it’s a bit awkward at first. Hadley is insecure around him but he’s patient with her and continues to show her she can trust him. Just as she’s starting to feel secure in their relationship, she overhears a conversation which turns everything upside down.
This book was more about Hadley and Nick’s relationship and I liked it a little bit more. Reliving the awkward teen years is always fun. Nick is easy to fall in love with! He makes mistakes, some of which were humorous to me, and finds a way to make things right with Hadley. I loved how their relationship developed and it felt real–their emotions and reactions to certain situations were perfect.
Hadley forms some new friendships in this book. Some of the girls who played a larger role in the first book don’t appear as much in this one. Again, there are some mean girls who aren’t very likable and don’t treat Hadley well at all. It’s interesting to see how she deals with each of them. This is a fun series to read and I’m looking forward to reading more!” by Melanie
