Love is somewhere near the bottom of Lily Thomas’ list of life goals, right next to competitive eating and underwater cave diving. She’s spent six years pirouetting and pliéing her way up the ranks of the New York Ballet with her eye on the prize and love in the back seat. But now that Blane Baker -- Lily’s long time crush -- is finally single, she’ll throw her rules out the window without thinking twice. Reality with Blane isn’t as epic as the fantasy she imagined, and the truth sends her spinning straight into the arms of the man she never knew she’d always wanted. West Williams has been friends with Lily since the day she moved into their building and he saved her armoire from a swift, sudden death by staircase. Their friendship has always been easy, the boundaries clearly defined. With neither of them willing to risk their relationship, they’ve drifted happily through the years as companions, never considering more. That is, until they do. And that realization changes everything.
Five (Huge) Boundless Stars
I remember when this book came out. I wanted to read it but then a million other books got in the way. So I had to put it on the back burner. But fate works in mysterious ways. Also, I’ve never read or listened to any Staci Hart's book before. I had never even liked her page! Gasp! What is wrong with me?!
Lily and West… I loved them. Now I read a lot of Contemporary Romance, Comedy because well I love this genre. When I listened to the preview for the audio, I started laughing from the very first chapter. So I already knew it was going to be good. And I did laugh a whole bunch of times. I hope I didn’t look funny in the car or at least at work I’m mostly by myself.
Even with how funny this book is, it's just as emotional. Your kinda slapped in the face with it. But Hart does this extremely well. Pulling every emotion out of the book. The Narrator Kirsten Leigh, I just really love what she does. I’ve already listened to about two other books with her Narration. Just like authors, you stick to narrators that you like, like a lifeline to the fiction world.
I don’t want to do a review, where I basically tell you the whole story. Because what's the point of reading it? but I have to say that it deserves it’s five stars. It has all the elements you would want from this genre. The writing is superb and I’m glad I jumped into this world. Also, there’s like three other books I get to jump into with the same characters. So I know that I’ll be listening to the audio as well.
Overall, I give this book Five (Huge) Boundless Stars. If I could give it a higher rating I would. I mean come on West would eat Brussel Sprouts for her, that’s true love right there.
