♥ Among A Thousand Stars - Jo Bartlett || Blog Tour ♥

They say you'd do anything for love, but what happens when you don't believe it exists?

When her mother turns up naked and proud during her first term at college, Ashleigh Hayes assumes that life can’t get any more embarrassing. Ten years later, with best friend Stevie at her side, and a successful career as a freelance photographer for monthly magazine Glitz, it looks like she might have finally got the hang of things. Only she seems to have inherited the embarrassment gene from her mother and her every encounter with new boss, Tom Rushworth, looks set to send her career spiralling backwards. Getting past their shaky start, Ashleigh and Tom embark on a relationship that was only ever meant to be a bit of fun. But when life, paparazzi and love-sick Labradors get in the way, they suddenly find themselves caught in a roller coaster ride of emotions.

Ashleigh a rather well known photographer for Glitz, and her best friend Stevie are insperable, always up to mischeif and more often than not fretting about their jobs, when part of Glitz is taken over by the renowned Tom Rushworth and they get called into the office, this has surely got to be it?
The pair, again end up lucky but Ashleigh even more so - when she ends up heading out for lunch with Tom. A lunch that never happend.

We follow the pair as they try to manage their hectic jobs, a bunch of celebrities and try and have a fun relationship, this is a book that is full of missed chances and plenty of  drama, it has you frustrated for the pair, but rooting for them to just get those few minutes alone. Among a thousand stars has a wonderful colourful array of characters that will have you laughing along with them and almost glad you are not the one managing them

Its a hearty chick lit read that makes the heart swell in places, that makes you feel like your in this crazy celeb filled world, and overall just was a wonderful book.

Jo Bartlett has been a teacher for longer than she ever expected, which made it difficult to choose names for her children because ‘challenging’ students put her off so many potential choices.  She now combines educational consultancy, teaching in HE and blogging as one of The Write Romantics, with writing both fiction and non-fiction, and lives so close to the South-East edge of England that she’s very nearly French.
Among a Thousand Stars is her first full-length novel.
