Rising Star, A Shooting Stars Novel Book 1, Terri Osburn

Rising Star (A Shooting Stars Novel Book 1) by [Osburn, Terri]

Genre:  Romance, General Fiction (adult)

I have a real weak spot for romances where the men are stars….so this caught my eye. It proved to be a fun read, not a weepy, fast paced heart stopper but a good, solid, realistic romance.
I loved Charley and Dylan and the secondary characters, their freinds and the band were good too. that means so much to me, if i don’t like the characters the story’s a fail for me. I have to like them to care about them, worry about them, feel empathy for them, and here they caught and tucked into my emotions.

I could understand Charley’s hesitance about romance, once bitten and all that and her career meant so much to her.
Dylan understood it too, after all his career was very important to him too, especially after the past issues with it. He knew though that they had something special between them and was determined to wear Charley down.

I liked the way the story played out, it felt very genuine but the only thing stopping it being a five was that somehow the romance seemed very quick, Charley was hesitant, then they were together and then the issues hit.
I sort of missed any real build up to them, it was a very 180 turn and full speed ahead and I felt that left a bit of space that I needed filling, a gap between Charley’s determination not to get involved and suddenly there they were totally in love.
Its not a huge issue and won’t bother many/most readers but it left it feeling a little light, a bit short on angst and drama for me.

Stars: four, a fun and moving romance.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
