One guy, one girl. One in the spotlight. One in the shadows. 

Falling in love with your best friend isn’t always a great idea, especially when he’s Noah Lockton - the sexiest, most famous new talent on the planet. When 21-year-old small-town photographer Chloe Campbell is offered the chance of a lifetime – to join her celebrity childhood friend Noah on tour as an exclusive blogger for a New York magazine – she’s certain both have put what happened four years ago behind them. But his eyes still burn; his voice is still a jackhammer to her heartstrings; all his songs are about her. Is it possible that that night still haunts them both? 

The music industry is a machine, spinning hype and rumors as much as his records. It’s not just Noah’s girlfriends who’ve got it in for Chloe (there’s no stopping the Twitter-obsessed, cat-loving pop-star Courtney Lentini for starters). Pretty soon, the jealousy and media frenzy surrounding these so-called-friends takes a life-changing turn and it seems making love means making enemies at every turn. When tragedy threatens to pull the final curtain on their relationship, both Chloe and Noah must make a choice. As much as this world leaves them starstruck, is living their dream really worth living without each other? 

A story of lifelong friendships, love and hope, set in a world of celebrity, fame and social media gone very, very wrong. 

From International Bestselling HarperCollins Author, Becky Wicks, comes a new adult romance that will leave you starstruck. 

*** Warning: this book contains graphic language, sex, and mature situations. Not intended for young adult readers.***


Before He Was Famous, by author Becky Wicks, was a fantastic reading escape! This is the first installment in the Starstruck Series and can be read as a stand alone :)

In BHWF we follow Chloe and Noah. These best friends have strong feelings for each other, but keep fighting their attraction to one another. When Noah becomes the new music sensation and Chloe is offered a chance of a lifetime to follow him on tour, there's no stopping the intense chemistry between them or is there?

What an amazing story! Becky Wicks' writing style is absolutely captivating and the cast of characters that she created are great! I finished this book in a couple of hours and forgot all about the world around me. I love when that happens! Even if I read many stories about best friends falling in love,  I can't get enough!!! Noah and Chloe are exactly the kind of H/h I love to cheer for and I am so happy that they found their well-deserved HEA after all the obstacles they had to overcome. They have an awesome chemistry and the nicknames that they have for each other are just ADORABLE! 

In this book we get to see the good, bad and ugly of being a celebrity. It broke my heart to see what Chloe and Noah had to overcome to be together. When you have the paparazzi chasing you and the social medias ruling over your world, life can get complicated! Noah learned the hard way when he participated to Show Us What U've Got. After the finale his world was forever changed. The entertainment world might be what Noah wants, but it's not where Chloe wants to be. In the process of following Noah's career, Chloe is caught in the media tornado that follows him. Their friendship was tested, but the more it encountered obstacles, the more it grew stronger, and so did their love for each other.

The love that Noah feels for Chloe is beautiful and heartwarming! He did whatever it took to have her by his side and to make sure that she understood what she means to him. Chloe resisted for a long time, but Noah knew exactly how to win her heart. Every tender moment they shared, every song he wrote for her was unbelievable! Such a beautiful and emotional love story that filled my heart with so much joy. I loved it from beginning to end! A real page-turner!


I give, Before He Was Famous, by Becky Wicks 4 exciting, lovable, romantic stars!
