'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?
Falling Stars is tediously written to keep emotions on a adrenaline high for much of this book. This is not your typical story of a immensely handsome rock star that falls for just some regular girl. This is a story of pain and grief, as well as, the pressures and reality of stardom. Christopher Mason has made quite a name for himself with the reckless and explosive behavior. Mia is everything that Christopher is not, except for a up and coming rock star. She is easy going and fun loving, but she also has very real side that readers will enjoy and easily relate. From the start these characters loath one another. This story is the absolute proof of the fine line between love and hate. As Christopher is determined to see an end to this all girl band on his tour, he sets plans into action that will unknowingly lead them both toward fates plan. This is a very predictable story, but that story is far from cut and dry. It is intense and mesmerizing that will keep you teetering on the edge of your seat. As the writing on the wall becomes more and more evident Sadie drags out the story leaving you to questions your predictions. She will test your limits, and enthrall you with this story of intense love and desperate healing. Surprisingly, I would have expected such a story of anticipation to be overwhelming, but I did not experience this in the least. My attention was devoted and captivated throughout the very end. I will be eagerly awaiting books two, and anxious to see what this author will conjure up for book two. This this impressive display of writing she sealed her place on my watched authors list.
