Even a supernova can shine again.
A chance meeting between chart-topping pop star Brady and rebellious Cara--out to sow her wild oats--leads to one unforgettable night in Las Vegas. The next day, Cara runs home to family responsibility, unaware of Brady’s search for her and his slip into a steep downward spiral. Life leaves them no choice but to pick up the pieces and move on…until they meet again, nine years later.
Cara’s engaged, ready to settle into a quiet and normal life. Having Brady re-enter the scene doesn’t figure into her big picture. But Brady’s finally found what he needs to re-ignite his music career, and he’s not about to leave it behind. He’ll have to show Cara, with her help, even a supernova can shine again.
Content warning; snoopy small-towners, pestilent paparazzi, meddling relatives, second chances, and one hot rockstar.
No excerpt available.
When Cara has to quit college to raise her younger siblings she takes a day and night for herself. Her stop in Vegas to sow some wild oats before returning to Nowhere, Utah allows her to live most women’s fantasy. A magical night with a gorgeous rock star.
Brady is really a good, down to earth guy under the rock star exterior. He sees and feels something different, special with Cara. When she slips away without so much as good bye the next morning there are serious repercussions. Accidentally finding her again nine years later he’s determined to get answers and closure.
Fallen Star Trouble is an engrossing, romantic second chance love story.
Brady and Cara have both lost hope, basically given up. Brady is doing the washed-up-rock-star-rehab-talk-to-teens circuit. He hasn’t had a hit or written a song in nine years. Cara has given up any personal dreams she had. Having successfully raised three of her siblings, only the twins, Kelli and Katie, are left. They just might prove to be the end of her. She’s settled in the worst way, convincing herself what she’d felt with Brady was a fluke. Neither has been the same since that morning in Las Vegas.
I enjoyed Fallen Star Trouble immensely. Brady and Cara are vivid, realistic, and likeable. All the characters are well defined. The conflict is believable and the focus isn’t just on the leads. The other characters play off Brady and Cara, adding to the story with their own problems. Running the gamut from humorous to serious I was happily swept into Nowhere, Utah and rooting for this second chance at love and life. Getting the story from both Brady and Cara, with asides from their “teams” in the form of confidences, adds depth and realism. I don’t know of a best friend that doesn’t add their two cents at every opportunity, it’s in the job description. I was especially tickled with the role reversal represented by Skip. Overall, Fallen Star Trouble is a highly enjoyable romantic read. If one of your favorite tropes is a couple’s second chance at love, I definitely recommend Fallen Star Trouble. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
