~~ 5 O.M.G. that Ending Stars ~~
This book was an EXCELLENT way to start a trilogy. I will warn you though….this book ends with a harsh CLIFFHANGER!!!! So if you don’t like cliffhangers, you are going to want to wait to read this book. Book 2 doesn’t come out until Winter of 2014.
I am a huge fan of Sydney’s Danvers Series, so I was so excited to see she was branching out from those books and creating a whole new cast of characters. I went into this book knowing it was a trilogy and presumed that it would end with a cliffhanger, but still decided I needed to read it now!!! Normally I would’ve taken a 1/2 star off for the cliffhanger, but I can’t fault the author for that since I had a feeling it was one and still read the book without waiting. I am so glad I read it NOW!!! This book was so good!!! It was totally different from her other books, but in a good way. This book does give you the 50 Shades of Grey and Bared to You feel, but was totally original in the storyline. Really the only similarities is that Lucian was a very wealthy man and Lia is a younger college student with a broken past. This story was written beautifully. It was smooth and flowed effortlessly. I loved that we got both POV’s in this book. This book is definitely a page turner and let me tell you, you won’t want it to end!!! I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough…LOL.
” Two lost souls drawn together by the scars of the other”
That quote totally sums up Lucian and Lia. We don’t find out a lot of Lucian’s past in this book. We are given small details and we know a little bit about how it ended in the past, but I am hoping we get to know him a lot more in book 2. I have a feeling his story is going to be a sad one.
“Oh, Lia, you never challenge a man like me. I promise you; you’ll do everything I want you to do and beg for more. I’ll see you soon.”….Lucian
“Think of me tonight, sweet Lia, and know I’m thinking of you.”….Lucian
I LOVED Lucian!!!! He was the right mix between sweet and caring and possessive and alpha. He definitely knew how to melt my panties. I also loved that he was so accepting of Lia’s past and was willing to do anything to help protect her. Lia was also a great character. Talk about someone who had a tough life. What she endures at the hands of her mother and step-father was pretty horrible. I actually had a tough time reading it. I loved that she persevered and became the strong woman she was throughout the book. It was also great to see both Lia and Lucian open their hearts up to each other and saving one another. I am excited to see where their relationship will go from here. I see some serious ups and downs in their future but I truly believe these two can pull through anything as long as they have each other.
This is a book I would 100% recommend!!! This book had it all, laughter, steam, suspense, drama and sorrow. This book will have your heart beating a mile a minute for many different reasons!!! If you are a fan of Sydney Landon…you don’t want to miss this book. But again if you don’t like cliffhangers…this is a book to hold off until at least book 2 comes out.
