so i’m a few days late on this review, but i didn’t just want to haphazardly write a review of this book. this book deserved a little more attention.
if you haven’t read a bb easton book yet, you absolutely need to get your hands on one.
star is the 3rd of 4 novels that are follow-ups to her first novel, 44 chapters about 4 men. admittedly i did not start with her first book even though i’ve owned it the longest! i started with speed when i was given an opportunity to review it, then back tracked and am now all caught up and anxiously awaiting suit which comes out this fall!
first off – bb and i would have been friends – i am certain of it! reading this book was at times like reminiscing about my own teenage years. i mean, the band boys i dated never got signed to labels, and i didn’t date anyone like knight, and i didn’t start smoking until college, and i definitely was not having any of that sex…but i was the girl in the flight jacket with short, spiky hair, following punk bands around and reveling in the occasional song with lyrics directed at me. this book hit home.
star is the story of bb and hans – the aspiring rockstar. theirs is one of those relationships where it was literally everything at first sight. it’s a love story for the ages for sure and it has all of the things i love in a good book. there is tension, love, a little slow burn, and girl knows how to write a sex scene. i could not stop reading this book. i couldn’t stop thinking about this book. this book gave me all the feels.
bb writes in this way that is like talking to a dear friend over coffee. she tells this remarkable story in the most down-to-earth way that isn’t ever pretentious or braggy and she gives just the right amount of detail to ensure that you know enough about each character to feel like you really know them without rambling on and on.
i was so sad when this one ended. i don’t want to wait until this fall to read suit. i am absolutely in love with these books! star was just so well crafted. i definitely give this one 5 stars. 5 very enthusiastic stars.
Because BB Easton had so much fun writing her best-selling, award-winning memoir, 44 CHAPTERS ABOUT 4 MEN, she decided to give each of her four men his own steamy stand-alone. STAR is Hans’s book—a real-life rock star romance…with a twist.
In 1999, Brooke “BB” Bradley met her Prince Charming. He was the tall, tattooed, wickedly handsome bass player for the up-and-coming rock band, Phantom Limb. But, more importantly, he was hers. She knew it the moment he flashed her that shy, dimpled smile.
And he knew it too.
Hansel “Hans” Oppenheimer wore his heart on one sleeve and scrawled lyrics about BB on the other. Unlike the assholes of her past, he showered her with tenderness, took her places she’d never been before, and showed her the type of all-consuming love she’d thought only existed in fairy tales.
But, like any good fairy tale, BB’s road to happily ever after was paved with challenges, and right when she least expected it…it forked.
In 1999, Brooke “BB” Bradley met her Prince Charming.
In 2000, she met her soul mate.
