You met them in Seeing Stars, and now they’re back. After celebrating the success of their movie Gateway and a leap into wedded bliss, Alisa and Logan Rider separate for a few months as they each venture into their own new thing: Logan is cast in a high-budget action film which is the stepping stone into the next chapter of his stardom, while Alisa has become a writer on the TV show Family Insurance, showing great interest in not only producing the show but casting as well. Since Logan will be busy with his movie, the studio hires Evan Gable, an up and coming director in the independent market, to help on the Gateway sequel. Alisa’s first impression of Evan leaves a sour taste in her mouth, but when she is sent on a scouting trip to New York City with him, she sees a different side of him. Feelings begin to develop, but Alisa is determined to keep him at a safe distance. She’s in love with her husband, Logan. When she gets back to Los Angeles, Alisa discovers a terrible secret her husband has been hiding, leaving her an emotional mess. She thought she had it all. She thought she was finally content. After finding her Prince Charming, and expecting a happy ending, Alisa becomes torn between loving him and leaving him. Can she forgive him a second time? Falling Stars is the sequel to Seeing Stars by Ellie Potts.
Review by Lissa
I really wanted to like this book. I loved Seeing Stars. The sequel was written by a different author. I went into it with an open mind. The writing seemed really mechanical at the beginning and the flow was all over the place. The sex scenes were mild. But I don't think I became emotionally invested at all with any of the characters this time.
Alisa having daydreams about someone else and Logan going back to what he used to do. It really didn't make sense to me. They were my favorite characters from before. At times I felt like was watching a daytime soap opera.
It felt like Alisa was going through a de ja vu. All the things that happened with her first husband. I expected more with Alisa and Logan. I wanted the passion again that was between these two characters. It was an ok read but I feel it could have been better.
