Hello and welcome to Just Answer.
Actually it does sound like the starter motor at fault or more specifically the starter motor solenoid.
Since they are sold as one item, its much the same thing.
The tests for that are fairly simple. It is just a case of checking to be sure your starter solenoid is getting the correct voltage to it when it is hot.
Take it to an auto electrician and they will check it in a jiffy.
The solenoids can Jam due to close tolerances if they become dried out and worn.
