Skye Copeland is on paid leave from her broadcasting job after accidentally drawing a pecker on the traffic map.
Let that sink in. Like it’s her fault the traffic pattern created a perfect schlong?
Skye isn’t laughing. She needs this job. And that’s the only reason she’s willing to chase down a story in her least favorite place—that hell on earth known as Vermont.
A quick trip. In and out. Much like - never mind. She can sneak into the town that once tried to break her, get the story and slide back into the good graces of her producer. Easy peasy.
But things go sideways the moment she steps over the county line. Her stepsister is running from a violent drug dealer. And the cop on the case is none other than Benito Rossi, the man who broke Skye’s teenage heart.
His dark brown eyes still tear her apart. And even as she steels herself to finally tell him off after twelve years, the old fireworks are still there.
Things are about to go boom. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
Now, I must confess, I have not read the other five books in this series. It’s like my theme this year. Agree to read books that are part of a series. But getting the 6th book. And I’m one of those people who like to read in order. So I was a bit afraid, that I would be lost through the whole thing. But alas, my concerns were just overthinking which I do a lot. Benito and Skylar are two characters that can hold their own story. I wasn’t lost, yes I didn’t know the back stories to the other characters. But that was fine. Throughout the story you get flashbacks of the two characters, how they met when they were younger. What brought them together and the unspeakable things that happened. There is one evil in that little town of Vermont. I loved both of the characters, and I think that they were honest, exciting and totally just got each other. And as a reader, you felt that. Which I think is a crucial thing. I love the writing style of Bowen’s and the way that she connects you to these characters. The story was not boring at all. It had that feeling as if something major was going to happen, and it didn’t have the overdone angst that happens, sometimes. It was honestly, just seriously a fantastic story. I’m so glad that I agreed to read this book, even if it was out of order. Overall, Five Boundless Stars
