Fiction Friday: Book Review- Shooting for the Stars (Gravity #3) by Sarina Bowen

Shooting for the Stars (Gravity #3)Shooting for the Stars by Sarina Bowen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Stella has had a crush on Bear for most of their childhood. However after he turned her down in high school, Stella has to content herself with just being his friend. Until one night when he has a crappy day and Stella is the one who comforts him (and somehow they end up in bed together). But any chance of a happy ever after is ruined when Stella finds out that her brother- and Bear’s best friend- has been badly injured in an accident.
I’ve read most of the Ivy Years series and I really enjoyed it. I love Sarina Bowen’s writing style and her characters. However this book seemed really filled with angst which kinda spoiled it for me. I did still enjoy it but I miss the lightness of the Ivy Years (maybe I should just go and finish the last few books in the series).
I loved the romance between Bear and Stella. I also loved the characters of Hank and Callie and will definitely be tracking down their story. This is a great read that I recommend to anyone who enjoys romance novels.

Fiction Friday: Book Review- Falling from the Sky by Sarina Bowen (Gravity #2)

Falling from the Sky (Gravity, #2)Falling from the Sky by Sarina Bowen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Callie meets dashing and daring Hank for a few minutes before one of his jumps. While it is clear that she makes no impression on him, Hank definitely makes an impression on Callie. And then he gets in an accident that leads to them running into each other repeatedly.
While pre-injury Hank was dismissive of Callie, post-injury-Hank is pretty taken with her. Ever since losing his career, his girlfriend, his friends and his drive for life, Callie is the only one who sees him as a person and not as someone as a wheelchair. But Hank’s accident has left him with more than just physical scars and if he wants anything to do with his pretty doctor, he will need to overcome his own personal demons and Callie’s own issues too.
I thought this was a really great novel. Callie and Hank are an adorable couple and this book was not as angst-filled as I thought it would be. I also really liked Hank’s character. He was flawed but well-written and well-developed. I especially enjoyed seeing the characters from the first book.
I thought that both Callie and Hank’s exes were awful and I enjoyed seeing them get what (I thought) they deserved.
I definitely recommend this book to all fans of romance novels.

Fiction Friday: Book Review- Rookie Move by Sarina Bowen (Brooklyn Bruisers #1)

Rookie Move (Brooklyn Bruisers, #1)Rookie Move by Sarina Bowen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve been stalking this book ever since I read an extract on Netgalley. I’m pleased to say that the actual book exceeded my expectations. Georgia and Leo were first loves and high school sweethearts. But then something happened that tore them apart. Years later neither of them are over it and the connection between them is as intense as ever.I loved this book. I’m a huge fan of Sarina Bowen’s writing and I love that her characters are always so real. This novel is no exception. I can’t wait to read the rest of this series. I’ve gotten really attached to these characters. They’re all so lively and fun. I think all romance fans should read this book.
