Manny Biro is surrounded by Hollywood glitz and glamour, but he does not want anything to do with the Hollywood way of life. He chooses the simplicity of a normal life over the pressure and expectations of Hollywood life, but this is not easy for him to achieve since his whole life is filled with people that live the very lifestyle he is trying to shun. His family and all his friends are in one way or another a part of the glitz and glamour, not to mention that his best friend Liana Marie is the hottest teenage Hollywood star. While Manny struggles to find a way of reconciling his ideas and beliefs about life with the reality of it all, he needs to resolve another issue that is more pressing and even more challenging. Can he really carry on being just best friends with Marie or should he act on the mutual feelings of love that they both obviously have for each other, despite the challenges presented by the fact that she lives the very life he eschews.

In Starlet's Man, Carla J. Hanna once again gives us an all-access pass that takes us behind the scenes in teenage Hollywood. Every new book in the Starlet Series portrays amazing character growth as you follow this young Hollywood crowd struggling to find their footing amidst the glitz and glamour that rule their world. Starlet's Man highlights the life of teenage Hollywood and the pressure and challenges that come with it. Forget all you have heard about the life of these stars. Starlet Series will give you a new and unprejudiced view. As if the pressure of being a teenager is not consuming enough, add the pressure of being one in Hollywood. Hollywood is a mash-up of diverse cultures, big dreams, impractical expectations and endless temptations and Carla J. Hanna brings all this out brilliantly. Starlet's Man is my fourth read in the Starlet Series and every time I have been dazzled by Carla J. Hanna's flawless writing style and character development.
