101 Ways to Make Love to a Spoon

Come outside, Red. Your chariot awaits. The text pops up on my phone the next morning. Me: I’m not even ready. I’ll catch the train. Jonathan: I’ll wait. Getting out of bed, I tell myself to take my time, to make him wait because it’s kind of stalkerish that he’s here anyway. Maybe if I take too long, he’ll leave… He doesn’t. And trying to get ready slow doesn’t work either. I’m ready and out the door a good ten minutes before I usually am. “Are you watching my house?” I ask, leaning through the window of his white Mercedes sedan to talk to him. “There’s a possibility that I hired security to keep an eye on your house while you were gone. And it’s likely that said security saw your car in the driveway and let me know about it.” “So you’re paying someone else to stalk me? That’s just lazy.” He shrugs. “I’ve got too much money for my own good.” Flashing me that million-dollar smile of his, he leans across the car and pushes the door open for me. “Get in. I’m driving you to work.” “Don’t you have a job of your own to do or something?” I ask, as I slide into the plush leather seat and buckle myself in. “I’m in between roles right now,” he explains as he does a U-turn in front of my house and aims his car toward the city. “So, really, I’m all yours.” “That’s very comforting,” I deadpan. “Isn’t it?” he grins, teasing me and loving every moment of it. "You know, being woken up to a text from you is becoming quite a common occurrence." I say after a while. "What can I say? I think about you a lot, and when I think about you, I want to talk to you. But, I settle for texting because I don't want to be a huge pain in your arse." He explains. "You are a huge pain in my arse," I state flipping down the sun visor to check my appearance in the tiny mirror. "Well, just imagine what a pain it would be if I called you every time I thought about you instead holding back and only texting when I really have to. So really, I'm doing you a favour here." I run my fingers under my eyes making sure my make-up is blended properly as I smile at his answer. "You look fine. Relax," he says, glancing at me quickly. "I am relaxed," I counter. "I was just checking I got my make-up on properly because someone rushed me this morning." He glances at me again. "I would have waited for you all day if I had to," he states letting a beat of time pass before changing the subject. "So, what was really in that box?" "Ah, now I get why you showed up this morning." "What? Friends are allowed to be interested in the things other friends get off their boyfriends." "He's not my boyfriend. We’re just seeing each other. And you and I don't quite fit in the friend category yet." "Really? Well, this is awkward…" He pulls down his bottom lip in this crooked way that makes me laugh at his silliness. "You're incorrigible. But if you must know, the box contained a cupcake." "A cupcake," he repeats. "And did you like the cupcake?" "I did," I state. "So that's what the girls go for these days, cupcakes?" "Well, it worked well for me." "Cupcakes and not flowers?" "Flowers work too." "Just not when they’re from me?" "Well, it is a little odd getting flowers from your friends when you aren't sick, and it isn’t your birthday." "I thought we weren’t friends.” “I don't know what we are, Jonathan. Let's not try too hard, or put a label on it. I’m obviously not going to get rid of you. So, let's just… be two people, hanging out, ignoring all the shit of the world without pushing for some kind of relationship–friendship or otherwise. Do you think you can do that?" I ask, as he turns the corner and double parks to let me out in front of my work. "Yeah, I can do that," he says as I open the door to quickly get out so he doesn't get a parking ticket. “I’ll see you at lunch.” A driver hits the horn behind us, and I hold up one finger to say we won’t be long as I lean back in. “What?” “I’ll be in the city all day. So I’ll meet you for lunch. It’s what friends do, Red. Get used to it.” He reaches across the car and gives me a wink as he pulls the door shut and takes off, leaving me a little dumbfounded as I step back from street to let the traffic go past. The man from the car behind flips me off and yells at me to get off the fucking road. It snaps me out of the weirdness that Jonathan seems to evoke and I return the sentiment before heading into my office building to start work and try to ignore the clock as time creeps toward lunch.
Beautiful Star Synopsis:
Star Small to shareWhen Jonathan decided to help Lisa, he was trying to atone in some way for his past sins. He certainly wasn't expecting to be pulled into a night full of hiding out from the press with a journalist called Sandra Haegen, and almost being choked to death by a rockstar in love with his ex. When Sandra decided to help Lisa by feeding Perry, she was just trying to be a good person. She also wasn't expecting to spend the night hiding from the press. Even more so, she wasn't expecting to spend the night with one of Australia's hottest young actors, Jonathan Masters. She also wasn't expecting to save his life. And that's just the beginning. From there, these two must find a way live with the past and look to the future - no matter what the personal cost.

Tammies Review:
Wow! Another great Beautiful Story from Lilliana. A Beautiful Star is the continuation of the story that started with David and Katrina in A Beautiful Struggle and The Commitment and then came in their friends Elliot and Paige in the story of a A Beautiful Forever and Paige's story in Phoenix, and then the story of Theo and Naomi in A Beautiful Melody, and then the story of Marcus and Lisa in A Beautiful Rock. Each story branches off to each of David and Katrina's friends and acquaintances. Now this story is about Sandra Haegan, Lisa's dear friend and Jonathan Masters Lisa's ex. Each story is unique and very captivating. Each have their own HEA and leaves you wanting more from the Beautiful Series.
What do you do when you run into the same situation you once had with someone famous and then another famous person comes along and your trying to keep from having feelings for them because in the end it always ends up with hurt?
Sandra Haegen is a reporter that was supposed to have interviewed Marcus Bailey in a Beautiful Rock but Lisa did it for her since Sandra has a past with Marcus. A famous Indie Rock star. Sandra was supposed to be feeding and taking care of Perry, Lisa's dog, while Lisa was on the run hiding from her past. But when Jonathan tries to help Lisa out by hiding her from the press and Marcus; Sandra is brought in and never once expected to spend the night hiding with a famous "hot" movie star hiding from the press.
Jonathan has a very bad past with women. He just goes from one to the other. Hes famous and he goes from one engagement to the other. Until he meets Sandra. She is the one women that he wants that doesn't want him back. His past experiences tell her to stay away from him but her heart is telling her another thing. Jonathan wants her but will he be able to be true to her unlike his past with women.
Will Jonathan and Sandra be able to deal with each others pasts and put them aside? Can Sandra open her heart up and let Jonathan in?
Will Jonathan wait for her to make up her mind that they are meant to be together?
I gave this 5 stars as I did for the other books in this series. They just keep getting better and all have captured my heart in each individual story. The romance is GREAT! If you want to read a GREAT romance series then I recommend The Beautiful Series by Lilliana Anderson. You'll fall in love with each character like I did.
