What I enjoyed most about A Southern Star is watching Christie wanting to do everything for herself and not asking for help as she has recently learned to not rely on others by only herself. While Blake has done nothing but offer her help ever since he first meet her. Blake and Christie going back in forth of he or she likes me to pushing each other away thinking that one has feelings but the other doesnt as they dont take the time to talk. Blake gives her her space but they both miss each other when they are not together.
This book was amazing I couldnt put it down as I had to know what was his secret held so close to his heart and if they would make it work in the end. This book has Christie a Woman who is about adventure and getting her life back on track after being devastated after her fiance cheated on her, not knowing she carried a part of him inside her, Blake a Man who wont give up and trying to get Christie to give him a chance and to give them a chance but without the right words there is to many mixed, confused emotions, A love Story. If you like stories like this, the A Southern Star is a must!
I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book!
I didn't feel the relationship and interactions between H and h were realistic as there was animosity between the two from the first page and through nearly the entire book. Over an 11 month period, they went back and forth from being rude/angry with each other to being friendly/interested over and over and over. It made it difficult to actually like them and made them seem childish. It happened so fast and so often, it gave me whiplash. Only in the last 10% of the book did they actually stop sniping at each other.
I would have enjoyed this book a lot more if the premise and secrets stayed but the nastiness towards each other until nearly the end was gone.
None of the characters were strong people that I could connect with or root for. They both were so completely horrendous with communication. Saying nothing, getting offended, walking away, letting weeks go by before seeing one another (not even meeting up intentionally either), and then we're supposed to believe in an HEA? Nope, not for me.
The scenery was beautifully described, though. Made me want to move New Zealand higher on my list of vacations.
Willingly read and reviewed an ARC received from Hidden Gems. Though I'm not exactly thrilled that I was also selected to review book 2 in this same series...
Christie has taken a job on Stewart Island after her fiance dumped her to sleep with her best friend. On the ferry over to Stewart Island Christie meets Blake, who seems friendly, but Christie is very wary of men. They spark off each other but keep saying the wrong thing and upsetting the other. Christie has been feeling off colour but she is horrified when she realises she is pregnant to her ex. She has to work out what she is going to do with no support from her ex. Will Blake help or will they keep on jumping to wrong conclusions about each other.
Well worth the read. It can be read as a standalone but having read this book I want to read the rest of the series.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.
There is nothing inherently wrong with this novel, it just does nothing for me. There is no connection, and therein lies the entire problem.
Nothing seems to be connected. The characters spend the entire book at odds, never connecting in any tangible way until the very end, even through they want to. And they disconnect over very little things. Neither of them seems to be that emotionally mature and I spend most of the time as I read simply feeling apathetic towards them. They get together, fine...They never get together, also fine. I want characters that I can root for and am passionate about.
This wasn't it.

The continuous use of names instead of he,/she was extremely irritating. and naïve.
