Nick Angel is a cult superstar - a brooding, talented, mesmerizing figure, handsome without being perfect - whose talent and looks - long black hair, hypnotic green eyes, a stubbly chin - have made him the idol of his generation. Nick can have any woman he wants...except the one he loves.
Lauren Roberts is a beautiful and special top model - tall, slender, with thick chestnut hair falling below her shoulders. Lauren's features have made her an international symbol of beauty and her life is the envy of every woman. But for all her fame and wealth, she still yearns for the one man she has ever really loved.
For Nick and Lauren can never forget each other. Teenage small-town lovers - he from the wrong side of the tracks, she the prettiest girl in town - their love was the town scandal, forbidden, sizzling and unforgettable, ending abruptly in a tragedy that sent them into separate orbits.
Nick pursues his dream of acting, and after a series of wild adventures begins the slow rise that will make him one of Hollywood's biggest stars.
Lauren goes to New York and enters the modeling world, surprising everyone with a career that takes off in a direction she never expected.
American Star follows them both on their trips to fame, as Nick and Lauren, haunted by the secret they share, try to live without each other - only to find they can't...."
