About the Author
New York Times and USA Today Bestseller/contemporary romance writer Samantha Chase released her debut novel, Jordan's Return, in November 2011. Although she waited until she was in her 40's to publish for the first time, writing has been a lifelong passion. Her motivation to take that step was her students: teaching creative writing to elementary age students all the way up through high school and encouraging those students to follow their writing dreams gave Samantha the confidence to take that step as well.
When she's not working on a new story, she spends her time reading contemporary romances, playing way too many games of Scrabble or Solitaire on Facebook and spending time with her husband of 25 years and their two sons in North Carolina.

The interactions between Owen & his family were enlightening. Owen & Riley always relied on each other until Riley became jealous of Owen's growth. When Owen stood up for himself, didn't back down & let Riley have it, I could have cheered! The Owen they knew didn't call them on their bad manners. The interactions between Owen & his dad, Brooke & her uncle & even Owen & his mentor were tender & educational. These moments lead to more & more details of their pasts & personalities coming to the surface. The intensity of the attraction from the minute Brooke & Owen meet jumps off the page at you.
I don't know how Samantha Chase does it. Each story builds on the feelings from the previous ones. This can be read as a stand alone since each plot ends within the book. If you start at the beginning with the first book, you get more of an understanding into the personalities. I don't feel that my review has done this book justice but I've done my best. I can't wait for Darcy's story!
Owen Shaughnessy, an exceptionally intelligent, very literal, astrophysicist, has been temporarily working as a faculty member at a University in Chicago, when Brooke, a beautiful, artsy, engaging, whimsical woman is introduced to him. The seed of the idea of Brooke assisting Owen on a student trip to Red Rocks, to view the eta aquarid meteor shower was mentioned to them by a mutual party. Owen would go and discuss the science of the stars in the sky with his students. Brooke would go to paint the night sky. What neither of them counted on was the strong attraction they had for each other, a pull that was hard to resist.
Samantha Chase took me on an emotional, fun, desperately romantic ride. I wanted Owen and Brooke to see the promise each of them held, in themselves and in each other. I was impressed that Owen broke out of his comfort zone on occassion. I was glad to go back to North Carolina for a bit. I was completely torn up over family dynamics that had me bawling like a baby one minute and laughing my butt off the next. And of course, any time we saw a glimpse of Lillian Shaughnessy, I was grateful.
So, I thank you, Samantha Chase, not only for creating The Shaughnessy Family(that I want to somehow become an honorary member of), but for wrting A SKY FULL OF STARS. Owen's story is incredibly meaningful, realistic, heartfelt and romantic! You are a true STAR!!! Congratulations!!
Brooke is Owen’s complete opposite – she is an outgoing, confident artist that can carry on a conversation with anyone. Although Brooke is beautiful and leads Owen down a path of self-doubt, the attraction between the two of them is almost at first sight. Owen and Brooke begin to spend time together doing things that each of them enjoys. They take the relationship slowly but when it moves to the next level – the setting could not be more perfect!
So what happens when opposites attract? Pure magic that leaves the reader breathless!
I love how sweet and thoughtful Owen is – the way he thinks everything through and chooses his words carefully. My favorite lines from the book are Owen’s - “ You never have to worry about anything with me Brooke”…”I will never ask anything of you that you aren’t willing to give, and if anything about my being her with you makes you uncomfortable, I’ll leave. Your peace of mind, your happiness, are all that matters.”
This story touched my heart and in true Samantha Chase fashion, it left me wanting more of the Shaughnessy Brothers!
