Falling Stars By Sadie Gruber

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?

Holly's Review:

I really enjoyed this book! I'm not even sure what caused me to pick this one other than it was a story about hot rock stars, total no brainer and I wasn't disappointed!

This starts out as the story of the famous rock band The Forgotten getting a new opening act, an all girl band called Hushed Mentality. Of course our lead singers, Christopher Mason(The Forgotten) and Mia Ryder(HM)cannot get along to save their lives! To be fair, Chis is a complete and total A-HOLE to Mia and we all know what that means.....He wants her! Well it doesn't start out that way, he just wants what he refers to as this ridiculous girl band off of their tour and pulls all sorts of stunts to make that happen. But, Chris has met his match in Mia and when he discovers that Mia's presence is the only thing that quiets his horrible nightmares he has to find away to pull her in instead of push her away.

Amazingly, we all see them falling in love, but as usual our hero an heroine are blind as bats when it comes to their love. This was a wonderfully, emotionally charged story and I really, really enjoyed it. I highly recommend this little gem and I am going to leave you with what I think is the essence of the story...

"Falling stars aren't always meant to be caught you know?" Laney said. "A falling star is actually on fire as it enters the atmosphere, so if I were to try to catch one, I'm pretty sure there would be some pain involved. Though, I suppose some pain would be worth it to find something so rare."

"What the fuck are you talking about?"

"Mia, you're trying to catch a falling star."
