REVIEW: Falling Stars by JL Brooks

falling stars full cover

Synopsis:

It had all the makings of a perfect plot, and for bestselling author Lila Keaton-it was a hedonistic past she kept hidden far away. Many nights were spent crossing the velvet rope, dancing until dawn and bedding one of the worlds biggest DJ’s, Hunter Michaels AKA Arial Assault. When Lila’s agent uncovers her thrilling secret, it appears as if nothing is off limits when it comes to pitching the story, whether Lila wants to tell it or not. Despite knowing her reluctance is career suicide, she cannot bring herself to open her heart once more to the man who nearly destroyed it. Given the opportunity to escape her predicament, Hunter attempts to reconcile the pain he has caused, and rekindle the passion that was abandoned long ago. When a series of events causes history to repeat itself, Lila sets off unaccompanied through out the west to test her boundaries with the sensual and surreal, and ultimately come face to face with the only thing that can keep her from falling.

TEASER2  


Excerpt:

He was sitting in a roped off area of an elegant night club and I was standing at the edge unable to reach him. From across the space he stared venomously in my direction for daring to intrude on his territory. Grasping for the pass around my neck, I remembered that I gave it to his girlfriend, the one who was down on her knees, sucking his cock for everyone to see. When she turned around, she smiled and thick black liquid seeped from the corners of her mouth and down her chin. Hunter's hand stroked the top of her head as if she were a beloved dog. Then again, to men like him, that is how women were supposed to act, like good little bitches.



JL Brooks brings us into the world of Lila Keaton and her adventures of trying to find herself.

I liked how this book took off with an OMG moment right from the start and flowed into the journey of Lila and her sexy, adventurous, torturous, past & present.

This book had my cherries popping with excitement of what would happen next.  I like how JL Brooks writes and gets us into the head of her main character Lila.  It felt as though I was right there with her.  Feeling like your part of the book is an excellent feeling & JL Brooks knows how to get us into it. 

I write like your kids color.  All over the place and without a damn care what anyone else thinks.  You mean I am not supposed to go outside the black line? Pshhhhh. -Lila

And this why I fell in love with this book!  JL Brooks totally got me.  Brooks writing is just like how Lila character is.  It's out there & you can take it or leave it.  I took it!

Hunter, Grant, Lorenzo..... well fucking damn!

Lila writers block has made a turn for the good when we get to see her adventures with these men.

All I have to say without spoiling it, is HOTTTT DAMN!!!!

I learned some new things while reading book.  Me likey, tehee.


There is a cliff hanger ending.  Yeppers but it was a good one which I totally did not see coming!  Eeeeepp!  I need book#2 like now!

I recommend reading this book.  Also, this was my 1st time reading one of her books and I am so glad I got introduced to her by my Minxy Sista Kiki! Make sure to check out JL Brooks other books.  I've already 1-clicked them and have them ready to be devoured :)
