Description provided on NetGalley :
Sometimes even destiny needs a little bit of help.
When childhood sweethearts Justine (Sagittarius and serious skeptic) and Nick (Aquarius and true believer) bump into each other as adults, a life-changing love affair seems inevitable. To Justine, anyway. Especially when she learns Nick is an astrological devotee, whose decisions are guided by the stars, and more specifically, by the horoscopes in his favorite magazine. The same magazine Justine happens to write for. As Nick continues to not fall headlong in love with her, Justine decides to take Nick’s horoscope, and Fate itself, into her own hands. But, of course, Nick is not the only Aquarius making important life choices according to what is written in the stars.
Charting the ripple effects of Justine’s astrological meddling, STAR-CROSSED is a delicious, intelligent, and affecting love story about friendship, chance, and how we all navigate the kinds of choices that are hard to face alone.
My Review :
First of all – I really wanted to hate this book. There were so many parts that to me, were boring as all get out! I couldn’t wait for it to end so that I could be done with it. But then, everything started whirling together, and I began to appreciate that because it is so true when it comes to our everyday lives.
We are all connected, for better or for worse. Each of us may unknowingly be playing some small part of someone else’s life that could end up making a huge impact.
So while this story wove so many threads, they did end up creating a complete picture. I found many of the characters delightful – (a little disarmed over the fact that the dog had his own storyline and POV.) But in the end, I would recommend this book to someone who is looking for a bit of entertainment in their lives.
