Review

"The pull of these characters is completely captivating. Their voices screaming to be heard. The twists adding spice, laughter, &grief. An exciting blend of drama, action, romance, traitor vs. loyalty, responsibility vs. desire, royalty vs. commoners, star crossed lovers, & so much more!"  ~ Jeni's Bookshelf Blog
 
"I'm enthralled by this book and its characters. Outdone yourself! The romance is steamy and sweet, and I can't wait to read the second book in this installment. Five stars!" ~ Cutting Muse Blog 

"I don't know where Venessa came up with the idea for this story, but it is brilliant!"

Wow! I have always loved Shakespeare, and usually feel that remakes don't do him justice; however, this series totally hit the nail on the head! Venessa took two people, who one would think would never become romantically entangled with each other, and they fell in love.

I think Venessa did a fabulous job in building the characters, and allowing us to come to know them individually before their romance lit up like the Fourth of July! I loved getting to know Ella, and her background. I was fascinated to see the privilege she came from, and how she was able to build a life on her own terms, while not allowing herself to fall upon her privileged upbringing.

I loved coming to know Raj as the story evolved, and see how much he cared for his native Jordan, his family, the people in his country as well as the refugees. I loved that he is so determined to help them find a better life.

I think the love scenes had enough spark to be juicy, interesting and fun, without going over the edge and changing the novel into a more erotic novel.

I enjoyed reading the background of Jordan, the descriptions of all of places within the story. I could close my eyes and see the pictures based on the words. I love reading books where the author is skilled enough to balance the boring, but necessary, description with art of using visual language, and ending up with a work that is not boring, but transports the reader the world the author is describing. It was effortless for me to see what the characters were seeing.

I can't wait to see the finale, and see where Ella and Raj's romance takes us. Will they end up as Romeo and Juliet, or will they have their happily ever after? I, for one, cannot wait to find out.

This book launched me into another world full of princes and kings. It sent me into a foreign land I've always wanted to visit. The intensity of love between Ella and Prince Raj is uncompromising. It seeps itself out from the words on the book. It is so sad that there is so much violence in this world and it touches so much of this book. On the other hand, I was so enthralled with all the sites described in this book that I have yet to see and yet experienced in words of a book. Thank you Vanessa Kimball for writing such an amazing book! Can't wait to tell my friends and other bloggers about it!

I am left speechless by Cross the Stars!! If I could give it more than 5 stars you better believe that I would do so in a red hot minute!!! It’s a very well thought out and in depth storyline that will have you wanting more. Cross the Stars is intense, hopeful, full of love and passion. However, with all of that being said, you can’t have any of that without a bit of betrayal and deceit. Trust me when I say that Cross the Stars is the entire package!!!! I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough and by the time I reached the end I wanted so much more. There are characters that you will adore and a couple that you will abhor. I found this book to be very refreshing and not like any others I have read before. I can’t wait to read Steal the Moon when it releases. I very strongly recommend that you purchase and read Cross the Stars immediately!

What would you do for love? Would you risk everything? That's the question in Cross the Stars. Ella Wallace wants to be part of something greater than herself. She travels to Amman, Jordan to be a teacher for refugees. She meets Prince Rajaa and falls in love with him. He is Jordanian royalty, Muslim and is betrothed to a Kuwaiti princess. She is an American outsider. He loves her so much that he is willing to risk his culture and status to be with her. You will fall in love with Raj and Ella! Venessa Kimball weaves a seductive romance that will leave you wanting more! The next book in the series can't come soon enough for me!

“Always do something with purpose, Ella Marie. Something greater than yourself. Risk for love, risk for life. Cross the stars and steal the moon if you have to.”

This quote, along with the toooooo many others I have in my advanced copy of this AMAZING book describe this story perfectly! Venessa Kimball went above and beyond to combine both cultures to give the reader the journey of a lifetime!! I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for the next book to see how this love story between Ella and Raj turns out😁👍

Venessa has managed to make my least favorite type of book (cliffhanger) very tasty and thrilling. Ella's grandmother was an extraordinary lady with her words of wisdom making her granddaughter likewise. Did she have her doubts? Of course she did. Did Raj do everything in his power to eliminate those fears? Of course he did. Then we waited for the explosions and there were many. Now we wait for the conclusion knowing that Ella and Raj have Cross the Stars. Will you Cross the Stars too?
