The Magic Of Stars || Blog Tour

Sapphire Montrose always felt like a loser in the struggle of life, but when she becomes the airline manager of a run-down airline she starts to believe she is a winner – until she unwittingly propositions her new boss and all her hard work is undone. Shortlisted in the Harper Collins Flirty Fiction competition

In a moment of recklessness air stewardess, Sapphire Montrose throws caution and her dress to the wind by propositioning a handsome stranger in a hotel in Florence, only to find herself waking up alone and embarrassed in her hotel room. Unfortunately for Sapphire, it turns out that her new boss, Marco Cavarelli, is the man she failed to seduce and she is now fighting for her job and her self-respect when he tells her there is no place in his revamped airline for an alcoholic woman with lascivious tendencies. To make matters worse she is increasingly attracted to him and he seems to be giving out the same vibes. Or is he simply testing her? One wrong move could be the end of her career. But what if he really is offering love – and is he worth the risk?



Review

I love books that are set in beautiful places like Florence, so before i even got past the beginning i knew it would be a great read. Sapphire heads to Florence with work to surprise her boyfriend, when that doesnt really work out for either of them - she heads to a bar and and offers herself to the nearest stranger, a swoon worthy italian who also turns out to be the one meeting her boss (the whole reason for her trip!) oh and soon to be her new boss. The new boss who now thinks she is an alcoholic lady of the night.

Throw together two strong personalities who have so far managed life but when they get together, they seem to clash and just forget how to get through life, but the attraction is sizzling but its one of those, that neither know how to tackle. Should they ignore it? Sapphire lives for her job but this man is something else.

The magic of stars is a wonderfully sweet romance read. I love also reading about Air hostesses (it was once my dream job for a while!) so i love reading about flying in the skies. The characters were honestly relateable (in that they were flawed) and had me laughing out loud. I loved how fiesty and sarcastic Sapphire was, and how sometimes Marco didnt always get it.

A wonderful 3.5/5

About Jackie Ladbury
Jackie Ladbury was desperate to become a journalist when she left school but was ousted within minutes on the day of the exam at her local rag because she'd forgotten to bring a pen.

Short and sharp lesson learned.

Her budding writing career was not on hold for long, though, as Jackie found herself scribbling love stories of pilots and 'hosties' while she flew in aeroplanes of various shapes and sizes as a flight attendant herself.

Fast forward a good few years and, after being short-listed in a couple of prestigious romantic writing competitions, Jackie decided it was time to discard her stilettos, say goodbye to the skies and concentrate on writing romantic novels, where the only given is a guaranteed 'happy ever after.'
