About FALLEN STAR

The second he walked through the door, she could tell he was trouble.

Grace knows better than to fall for a Hollywood bad boy like Scott Deacon. An arrogant movie star with a troubled past and a big honking chip on his shoulder? No, thank you. He may be sex on wheels, but beneath the charming facade he’s just another cocky jackass destined to make her job more difficult.

Except…

The more time they spend together, the hotter the fire between them burns. With every flirtatious smile and brush of his hand, she feels her defenses crumbling.

She wants to hate him, but instead she’s in danger of losing all control.

Read an Excerpt from FALLEN STAR:

Tuesday they were shooting on location in Jackson Square all day. The call time was two hours before dawn, so they could wring every second of sunlight out of the day, and Grace could not stop yawning on the transport van to the location.

“Wakey, wakey,” Scott said, leaning over the back of his seat to shake a plastic tumbler filled with something thick and green and disgusting-looking in front of her face.

“Ugh,” Grace grumbled. “Get that away from me.” She couldn’t help but smile a little though, even through her sleep-deprived crankiness.

An hour later, as the first streaks of light were glimmering in the sky above the river, Scott showed up at the pop-up tent where video village had been set up, and presented Grace with a white paper bag and a tall styrofoam cup from Café du Monde.

“For me?” she asked, perking up considerably. “Did you seriously walk over there and buy me coffee?” He didn’t seem to have gotten anything for anyone else. Just her. Her brain filed this information away to obsess over and analyze later, when he wasn’t standing two feet away grinning at her.

“Café au lait,” Scott said smugly. “And beignets.”

Grace narrowed her eyes at him in suspicion. “Did you make one of the PAs do it?”

“As a matter of fact, I did it all by myself. And I had to take a picture with the employees, so I hope you appreciate it.”

“I do!” she said, beaming at him. “You’re officially my favorite person today.”

He blinked at her, his smirk fading into something else entirely. Whatever that expression on his face was, it sent Grace’s stomach tumbling into a free fall. Rather than examine it more closely, she focused her attention on the bag in her hand. Inside was a mountain of powdered sugar, and buried beneath it were three pillowy squares of fried dough. “Don’t inhale while you’re eating those,” Scott warned her.

“Not my first rodeo,” Grace told him, excavating a beignet. “Want one?”

“Noooo.” He held up his hands in a warding gesture. “I’m doing a water cut for that fight scene on Thursday.”

Right. He’d be shirtless, which meant the Abs of Glory would be on full display. Grace found herself looking forward to Thursday with a little more enthusiasm.

“Sucks for you,” she said, giving him a taunting grin as she bit into a beignet.

His eyes homed in on her mouth with laser beam focus. “That’s fine. I’ll just enjoy them vicariously by watching you eat.”

“Does this get you off?” she asked archly and took another bite.

Scott licked his lips. “Not gonna lie, it kind of does.”

Grace couldn’t help laughing at his retriever-staring-down-a-dog-treat expression, which led her to make the fatal mistake of inhaling with the beignet in front of her mouth. Coughing sugar out of her lungs, she clapped a hand over her mouth as a cloud of fine white powder billowed out in front of her.

Scott sidestepped the powdered sugar typhoon and patted her on the back, chuckling. “Told you not to inhale.”

Today I read “Fallen Star” – the second book in the Starstruck Series by Susannah Nix. Two weeks ago or so I read the first book “Rising Star” and already liked the way this author develops her stories. This time she went even further.

Fallen star is almost a cliché without being one – let’s see how do I explain this …

This book is a lesson on prejudice and pride, a lesson on strength and vulnerability – a story of how they end up in misunderstandings when people do not communicate

It should be a lecture for us to not judge people without knowing everything.

To not condemn them for past mistakes unless they are unforgivable

To give them a chance to redeem themselves if their mistakes are forgivable – especially if we have no idea what actually happened.  

I actually physically hurt for Scott because the way Susannah Nix presented the story is exactly the way it happens in reality. Not that I know anything about the life of people in Hollywood but lets be honest … WE ALL HAVE BEEN THERE AND DONE THAT – and I am more than relieved that I do NOT have wear that T-shirt.

And it is only one step from real life that we know to the social media we also follow. We see things there that someone posted. Someone that might have received money for it or gained otherwise from it. The context in which it is posted might be right or it might be wrong – we are in no position to judge – yet we do it – automatically – either in quiet in our minds or out loud – but we do it.

I bet from the plot you are expecting Scott to be a bad boy – and Grace to be the “innocent victim to his charm” – and maybe I am the odd one out there but for me Scott is actually the “victim” and Grace is the perfect mirror of our society.

Taking the first line from the blurb – actually Grace SHOULD know better – because there is not only this one side to Hollywood – she should know there is also the other side – the one where appearance is everything and once you have a “name” you have it forever – in good times and in bad.

But Grace is written in a way that shows a person can also change her mind believable and the reader can forgive her too for her prejudice.

I really loved how the whole plot developed as it felt real – it never felt exaggerated in any way and I think every reader that likes the blurb will be able to step into the story and feel it.

And maybe we can learn something from it – so we think twice before coming to an opinion the next time we see something on social media.

I have to think about how to write the review to this…

I was 19 when I moved into a nursing home (this is the truth and not a joke)…. the things I saw there made me choose this book for review. Half of their huge attic was converted into a furniture storage and I remember choosing my first furniture there thinking about the persons that used to own these things and the reason they were now in that attic. They had a morgue in the basement right next door to a bowling alley – I don’t know how often I saw a coroner’s wagon drive around to the backside of the building in the dead of the night … so you would think I was prepared to read this book – right ?

Wrong …

I thought I knew what this would be about …

If you think I am not making much sense? well, you should read the book then you would be at a loss too… The thing is … There is hardly anything that I can write about the story because every sentence might give away something – especially the comparison to a certain book that lingers in my mind …. (not so much because of the story but more because of the effect it had on me) …

It is my first book by this author and now I am scared and there is only are only two other authors that scare me this way … One is Colleen Hoover and the other is Jojo Moyes … In mentioning these two I think I am saying a lot. Especially to people that read books of these two. Such an innocent Blurb …. #shaking my head no ….

I loved each and every character in this book – but I would have loved them even more if I could have changed certain things that I can not name here. The writing was well developed and the author did a great job at attempting to kill me – which is not an easy feature given the number of books I read that should have prepared me for just about anything by now.

– for now? well, for now, I will take good advice I received … I opened a bottle of wine and replaced the empty tissue box – and even though I “hate” what the author did – I kind of love it too… shortly before the author’s last words I was wondering if I should open my review with the words “Is it true”? Because everything felt like it was becoming full circle…

5 STAR BOOKSHELF RAMBLINGS RECOMMEND REVIEW

Grayson by Lisa Eugene

Title : Grayson
Author : Lisa Eugene
Series : N/A
Rating : 5 Stars

Blurb : An insane love that will keep you from falling—or push you right off the edge. All she needed was a job… The last thing twenty-four year old grad student Angie Roberts needs is to worry about her new boss’s father. After all, she’s never even seen him. He remains sequestered upstairs in a house that looks like it should be the main feature in an episode of Hoarders. She had no idea the house was such a dump when she took the job. But she’s concerned about the safety and health of the old man living under such horrid conditions.
What she got was a mystery…Despite warnings not to venture upstairs, she wanders up to the second floor. What she sees is shocking. The man she finds is a gorgeous, sexy, middle-aged man– and he’s stepping out of the shower. But something is definitely not right. Why would this wealthy, handsome man live in a house in such disrepair while his nine-teen year old son resides in a lavish penthouse? Why does he hide away from society? Why does he come to her rescue and then run away? What she discovered was heartbreaking… Angie learns that forty-four year old Grayson Whitmore suffers from schizophrenia. Paranoid, he retreats into his own world. What she ended up with was a treasure… Angie is determined to get through to Grayson. They form a friendship that blazes into an inconceivable love fired with raging passion. Angie must now come to Grayson’s rescue because the wicked that has been perpetrated on him is unconscionable. First, though, she must gain the trust of a man whose mind does not allow for such a thing.
 
Review : This book is an easy 5 star – which for my tast could have been double in its pages … The author was very sensitive – i feel – about all issues concerning Grayson’s state of mind … There was no sugar-coating around the problems Even if I would have liked the “getting to know and trust” phase to be longer – it was still told in a way that let you connect with the leads – And where many shorter novels lack in their depth of character development – I could not feel any of that in this book I belive that it was (at least for me) obvious who was good and who was bad in that book from the beginning on – and in other books that “seethrough” might have been disturbing – but for this story it was fully ok – as the main object was “Grayson”. I can honestly say I never read something like this before and I fully enjoyed it. And believing that story will stay for me for a while – I have no problem with 5 stars …

On the Way to You by Kandi Steiner

 

 

On the Way to You

  

 On the Way to You
Kandi Steiner
November 16th 2017

 

What makes you happy?

That was the question Emery Reed asked me the day we met, and I couldn’t give him a single answer. I could have said my dog, or my books, or yoga — but I just stared.

And then, I got in his car.

It was crazy to take a road trip with a stranger, but after years of standing still, he was my one-way ticket to a new life, and I wasn’t going to miss it.

We shared the same space, the same car, the same hotel room — and still, we were strangers. One day we’d be laughing, the next, we wouldn’t speak. Emery was surrounded by impenetrable walls, but I wanted in.

Discovering his journal changed everything.

I read his thoughts, words not meant for anyone’s eyes, and the more I learned about him, the harder I fell. It turned out nothing made Emery Reed happy, and I wanted to change that.

I earned his trust by violating his privacy, and as wrong as it was, it worked — until one entry revealed a darkness I never knew existed, a timer I never knew was ticking.

Suddenly, what made me happy was saving Emery from himself. I just didn’t know if I could.

 

 

My Thoughts in three pictures ….

 

I read half the night – I just couldn’t bring myself to stop. On the Way to You

by Kandi Steiner is one of THOSE books… It is my first read from this author and I am 100 % sure it will not be my last. Her writing style left me speechless in the end. Yeah I intentionally write “in the end” because the book starts off so quietly and I was wondering why I choose to review this ARC …

 

To understand you have to know when a book is offered to me to read I check out the Blurb and then I agree or disagree. I place the book on my schedule with the due dates I get and after that there will be dozens of requests and weeks if not months until I get the book.

 

And then comes the tricky part. I could go back to reading the blurb to remind off the content but lately I developed the habit of intentionally NOT doing that. So when I opend the book I had literally no idea what I was about to read or what I saw in the Blurb the moment I choose it. The first pages floated over me as a gentle breeze until I read that one line “What makes you happy”. In that second I remembered … My Mind went back to a book I read long ago I can not even remember the title to be honest I am about to ask my cobloggers if they remember my ranting at that time. I have to be honest I must have read more than 1000 books since then but I still remember the answer to a similar asked question in that book that made such a big impression on me that I knew ….

 

I knew waiting to get an answer to that question in this book would be a road trip of its own.

 

Road trips are a tricky thing for me – as movies I hate them to be honest but as books they really depend on the travelers and this “lucky Penny” and her “Boy” were worth the journey that much is sure.

 

Especially when I realized that half of their route was one I had made myself 3 times already and will do so again next year.

 

I am at a loss what I should tell you about the book because I am afraid that anything might spoiler something and I am not willing to risk that. But I can tell you my feelings…

 

I was calm

That became interested

Turning in to curious

I smiled a lot only to

Shake my head because I could not comprehend

It made me sad

My heart got heavy while at the same time

My chest got even heavier with love

I cried

And I cried some more

I started hoping

Felt there was something looming in a distance

My heart broke

 

And then  …….

 

YOU should find out for yourself what happened after that but please have some tissues ready

5 STAR ARC BOOKSHELF RECOMMEND REVIEW

His Heart by Claire Kingsley

 

 

His Heart

  

 His Heart
 Claire Kingsley
November 8th 2017

 

Brooke Summerlin’s life is like a Cinderella story. Raised by an abusive, drug addicted mother, she desperately hides the truth about where she comes from. But Prince Charming arrives in the form of Liam, the most popular guy at school. He sweeps into her life and carries her away to what is supposed to be a happily ever after.Until it isn’t.Sebastian McKinney is the son of an Iowa state champion wrestler, and that’s what he’s going to be. Wrestling is his life. He’s focused. Determined. Nothing will stand in his way.

Except a silent illness that almost kills him.

Brooke’s greatest tragedy becomes Sebastian’s second chance at life. Four years later, he’s moving forward, his body healthy, while she is left to sink in grief that threatens to drown her. Haunted by a past she can’t escape.

But sometimes love transcends the boundaries of life and death—between what is known and what cannot be explained. The heart that loved Brooke continues to beat, and even now, it still beats for her.

 

 

 

There are only two words I have as my thoughts on His Heart by Claire Kingsley. And those two words are “IT HURTS” …

 

When you read the Blurb you kind of know where the story will go at least for some part. So when you finally have the book in your hands and start the journey I was torn between wanting to read the book and dreading to read the book.

 

It has been a long time since I felt like this. The author really uses the whole arsenal she lets you meet the characters – and she lets you develop feelings for all of them ( OK I admit mostly for the guys) but she always at every turn raises her hand and you are reminded of the warning signs. Those signs say YOU WILL GET HURT IN THE PROCESS

 

So what happened was … I read a chapter and then two – then I had to stop … then I read the next chapter … I placed the book down … picked up a totally different book and read it completely then went back again to read a chapter. And so on … I think I read 5 other books while actually reading this book.

 

Usually you would take this as a sign that something is wrong with the book but in this case I beg to differ – absolutely NOTHING was wrong … it was all on me … dreading what would happen … I was scared and it felt like if I do not read it  – it would not happen.

 

So if you are looking for emotions ? and I am talking “the fault in your stars” (not subject wise but HURTwise) you came to the right place… this book deserves its 5 hurtful stars

 

Read it … I dare you …..

REVIEW : Ruthless King (Kings of Rittenhouse #3) by Maya Hughes

 

 

Ruthless King (Kings of Rittenhouse #3)

  

Ruthless King
Kings of Rittenhouse #3
Maya Hughes
January 10th 2019

 

My dick never got me in half as much trouble as my heart…

We were high school sweethearts. I was head over heels for her and no one could tell me we weren’t going to last forever. College? Going pro? My family’s money? None of it mattered. She was all I needed.

Then she ripped my heart out. But I’m not going to let that happen again.

She’s back. Invading my life and acting like she was the wronged one. The pain is still there, but I can’t keep my eyes off her. I can’t stop thinking about her and how much was left unsaid between us. Being this close is making me question everything I thought I knew about her.

This time everything will be on my terms. Everything…

 

 

Ruthless King (Kings of Rittenhouse #3) by Maya Hughes was the first book in that series that I read and I loved it – which proves that it is easy to read this story as a standalone. But once you read it you might not be able to enjoy the previous books afterwards to their fullest as parts of them might be spoilered.

When I came across the book I hesitated for a second because I thought it might not be for me as I had problems with second chance romances lately and also the blurbs first line made the male lead sound so full of himself.

Well it was a good thing that my heart overruled my head it in this special case and it did not steer me wrong. The plot is wicked with its twists and turns , still engaged readers might be able to guess at a certain point what will happen (well I did but it still did not rescue me from shedding a few tears so consider yourselves warned)

This is one of these books where your heart goes out to the leading characters for the time they lost. Due to circumstances that might have been avoidable, due to decisions that came from a good place but ultimately broke what was important the most – their heart. #sigh

I am not a fan of Now and Then storylines – as in a second chance novel the THEN is obvious because in the NOW they are not together – I call it the titanic factor – that ship is still at the bottom of the sea NOW no method of retelling will ever change that. But Ruthless King was somehow very satisfying for my heart. Righting the wrongs – even when Time is still lost felt good with these characters even if the journey towards this end hurts.

My reviews are rarely retelling the storyline as that is what the blurb is for – I am all about feelings when I read. And this book had enough of that to make me really love it. 5 Heartfelt Stars.

A Steel Heart by Amie Knight

 

 

A Steel Heart

  

 A Steel Heart
 Amie Knight
November 9th 2017

 

Five seconds.
A deafening blast. Pain. Silence.
That was all it took for an IED to end my life as I knew it. The man I was shattered in a hard wave of sound and debris that rained down on me like death itself.
And six months later, after waking up to an inescapable hell, I found myself wishing that death had found me.Until her.
Miranda Jacobs swept into my life like a cool breeze on a smoldering day.
With her smart mouth and her ridiculous jokes, she brought me back to life one minute at a time.Turned out time wasn’t on our side.Five seconds.
Screams. Twisted metal. Silence.
And I’d lost it all again—only this time, I had no one to blame but myself.

 

 

 

It has been a while again since I felt so connected to a book and lived with ups and downs of the characters. After I finished reading A Steel Heart by Amie Knight, I send a tweet to the author telling her that this book for sure will make my #top5 of #BestBooks2017.

 

When you start reading a book it usually only takes a few minutes until you know this book has the potential to be something special. Sure still something can go wrong during the duration of the story that might make you dislike it later – but mainly you can feel it. But there are  those cases when there is this little something that hooks you and makes you wish you could read without sleeping or working (eating and drinking works perfectly while reading)

 

Everything about this book felt real even the parts that were far away from sounding real – they still FELT like it. The actions and thoughts of the characters connected me to them. I smiled at their banter, I even laughed a few times out loud and I felt tears gather in my eyes at their pain. And my heart went out to both of them as they battled their fights to get to each other.

 

The author wove a beautiful story around them where everything felt like it was just right. If it were up to me only books like this would exist in my reading world. #sigh

My first book by this author will most definitely not be my last

4 STAR ARC BOOKSHELF RECOMMEND REVIEW

Since Drew by J. Nathan

Since Drew

 
Title : Since Drew
Author : J. Nathan
Series :N/A
Rating : 4 Stars

Blurb :

 

All Andi Parker has ever wanted, all she’s ever dreamed of, is a spot on the Olympic track team. But when an accident leaves her hospitalized with serious injuries and shattered dreams, she’s not only uncertain what her future holds but also completely alone. Drew Slater is a wanted man. Professional football teams want him for his arm. Women want him for his good looks and magnetic personality. But the well-crafted disguise he wears, the one that helps him score on and off the field, hides secrets. Conceals lies. Threatens the happiness of everyone around him. One chance encounter brings Andi and Drew together, changing their worlds in ways they never thought possible. Unfortunately, what they thought they knew about themselves—and about each other—might just be the biggest lie of all.
 
Review :During almost the whole book you find yourself in a hospital together with different characters that are actully kind of refreshing right from the very beginning. While Andi seems to be the quiet one, Drew starts to push boundaries right from the beginning. It seems like their relationship is very heated which is not only because of the kind of arrogant, confident and verbal outbursts of Drew, also Andi seems to be more the cheeky kind of girl who fights for what she wants. I really liked the way how they interact, even if at some points the arrogant comments made by Drew really made me think… “Shut up, you should know by now that she is not this kind of girl you always dealt with before”. But then, not even one or two pages later, you are like …”Wait, is this the same Drew!?”
That’s an aspect which also seems to play quite an important role as the story is influenced by the bulk of information Drew is willig to talk about.
At the beginning even as the reader you feel like they have known each other for years and then when the story-line developed, they ignore each other right before the only person Drew is talking to is, surprise, Andi.
There are so many great ideas attached to the book that I have to say: great story! But at the same point, these ideas also are the reason why I rated this book with “only” 4 stars. At the end I just wished the book would be a little bit longer as these ideas are mentioned and some of them are described more than others, but there are points at which the explanation or result seems to be not completely explained. It seems like the time the plot covers includes not even 3 days(which is good considering the effect it has on the reader in reference to their relationship), but it sometimes develops too fast. There are all these story-lines intertwined. Solving the problems seems to be sometimes too simple, so I wish it would be a “little bit more complicated”. Not that what happens in the book is easy to cope with, but just a little bit more of a fight….. Combined with the sporty part of the story it would have been interesting to get to know more about this aspect, for example to get see how they both helped each other or how frustating it was for Andi to train her broken leg. All these mentioned aspects sound like I only want to critizise this book, but that’s definetly not the case ! I am so happy that I was able to get to know these awesome story including these awesome characters. That’s why I rated this book with 4 stars. I started it in the morning and in the evening I finished it which explains the effect this story not only has on me, for sure also on other readers.

Her new boss, Trace Montgomery, even helped with securing her an affordable place to live: a beautifully restored carriage house owned by his friend, Rafe McKenzie—a man that makes her catch her breath and stirs her imagination. Trouble is, he’s involved with someone, his father is being released after 25 years in prison and Avery is just his tenant. Exploring the attraction that sizzles whenever they’re together would be the icing on the cake, but Avery knows all too well that you can’t have everything. Of course, what’s cake without icing?Rafe McKenzie’s world shattered at nine when his father Liam—the only parent he knew—was arrested and convicted for armed robbery. Growing up in the system, Rafe managed to survive his childhood and now has a job he enjoys, a house he’s restoring and a tight circle of friends. He’s even working on reconciling with his dad, both eager to put the past in the past. Happy for the income a tenant would bring, Rafe agrees to rent his carriage house to Clover’s new pastry chef. When Avery Collins pulls up his drive, she’s not at all what he’s expecting. Funny, sexy and as sweet as her desserts, it doesn’t take long for things between them to heat up. Just when it seems as if they’ll have their cake and eat it too, the past comes back with deadly intent leaving Rafe to figure out who’s pulling the strings before his world shatters again.

 

Review : Is it possible to gain weight through reading a book ? I bet you are saying “NO” – impossible !! – but that is just your answer because you have not read Beautifully Decadent (Beautifully Damaged #3) by L.A. Fiore – already looking at the cover made me hungry … and the title is just so fitting to the content that it almost hurts.

 

It is no secret that I love the books by this author … So I got totally impatient waiting on the next book from her to be released … Yeah – it is on in the series of “beautiful damaged” – which I was sure would guarantee me total reading pleasure – I just had no idea at that time that this kind of pleasure also went right through my stomach too.

 

Oh – the books are basically standalone novels in that series but as the characters of the first two books make an appearance I would suggest to read them in the right order. It is not absolute necessary to enjoy this book but more to guarantee that you will not spoiler yourself into the endings of the other books.

 

Avery and Rafe were just wonderfully developed – there is nothing more that I could say. Ms. Fiore really worked her magic to create another set of interesting characters. I am already hoping for a forth book so I will be able to meet them all again.

 

But this author not only develops her characters to the dot – not also the setting in which they are placed. During reading I was envisioning Rafe’s house and also the carriage house that Avery was renting.

 

BUT what was even worse … I felt myself craving baked goods… without conscious thought I was digging into cupcakes during reading jus to get the real feeling and I found myself googling recipes for cakes and cookies while I read about them.

 

SO yes believe me it is possible to gain weight during reading this romance novel … but you can also believe me when I tell you – you will love every second of it and not regret any calorie.

REVIEW : The Redemption of Callie & Kayden (The Coincidence #2)

 

 

The Redemption of Callie & Kayden (The Coincidence, #2)

  

The Redemption of Callie & Kayden
The Coincidence #2
 Jessica Sorensen
July 30th 2013

 

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Coincidence of Callie & Kayden comes an emotional new story about two troubled souls sharing one all-encompassing love . . .

The dark secret Kayden has kept hidden for years is finally out. Worse, he’s facing charges for battery. The only way to clear his name is for Callie to speak up-something he’ll never ask her to do. Instead, he’ll do whatever he must to protect her . . . even if it means letting go of the only girl he’s ever loved.

Callie knows Kayden is going back to his dark place and desperately wants to save him. But that means facing her greatest fear and admitting her own painful secrets aloud. The thought of breaking her silence terrifies her-but not as much as the thought of losing Kayden forever.

Deep in her heart, Callie knows the time has come for her and Kayden to forget the pain of the past. With the help of her friends Seth and Luke she makes a plan to show Kayden the life they could have. But can she convince him they can make a fresh start together-or is she already too late?
