Star Craving Mad by Elise A. Miller

Week of August 31: Star Craving Madby Elise A. Miller
Maddy Braverman, thirty and single, has taught first grade at an elite private school in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village for the past six years. Angry at herself for not moving on, Maddy is distracted from her pity party with a new student—Lola Magdalena, daughter of A- list celebrities Nic and Shelby Seabolt—a last-minute addition to her class roster.
When Lola breaks her arm on the playground, Maddy has the chance to meet with Nic in his TriBeCa apartment. Maddy’s celebrity fantasies turn to reality—make out sessions, sex and even a Hamptons holiday bash that leave Maddy yearning for Nic’s love.
My Thoughts 

So for some odd reasons I didn't love the book but more so like it. It was a quick book to read and I finished it the same day I got it in the mail. I wanted to love the book some more but the connection wasn't there for me. Yes the plot was good and it did have me reading it straight through but when I finished the book and I was left saying "that's it".I  was expecting a bit more for what I bargained for but this wasn't a terrible book to get lost in the pages. Elise is a good writer but I think it was more so the characters that I really didn't enjoy much but the plot was original and I have never read a book like that before.
