Falling Stars

“A falling, or shooting, star, is the common name for the visible path of a meteoroid if it survives impact with the Earth’s surface.”

Christopher Mason, the infamous lead singer of The Forgotten, has a reputation for being ‘difficult’. Harboring dark memories and the burden of a painful secret, he struggles with a past he desperately wants to destroy. Amidst this star’s battle with the pull of his demons, he risks losing everything he’s built as a musician.

Enter Mia Ryder, the head strong yet laid back, lead singer of Hushed Mentality. As the opening act for The Forgotten, Mia and her all girl rock band are sure to gain the publicity needed to sky rocket to the next level in their dream career.

Mia’s laidback personality is challenged by Chris’s plotting for their demise and removal of the ‘girlie band’ from ‘his’ tour. But even Chris’s best laid plans aren’t prepared for Mia.

As the demons pull this shining star down, is the one person he wants to eliminate the only person who can save him from the collision course he is on?

So I happened to get this one off the free reads through Amazon and decided to give it a try since I had it on my TBR shelf. I was very surprised at how much I liked it. I was happy I checked out the free reads yesterday. There were definitely some typos and grammatical errors as well as some places where the author needed to do better editing but overall I was able to look past those things and just get into the story.

This was a lot more than a story about the “Bad boy” falling in love for the first time with a “Good girl” and them having to figure out how to navigate their new relationship. There isn’t really that insta-love we find in a lot of these books, these characters truly do not like the other person (although Chris realizes his true feelings about Mia a lot sooner than Mia does) and Chris really is a asshole to almost everyone.

This isn’t just a love story, there is a lot going on here.
