Ever wanted to truly be in the head of a messed up rock star? Messed up when he's stone-cold sober, no less. I've read all of Ms Swallow's Blue Phoenix series and this one seriously gets you deep into Dylan's psyche. Not a nice place to be - even after you've seen the inside of Jem's head in Rising. But it's always the quiet ones you have to watch until they snap...

Yes, Dylan's a self-proclaimed d*ckhead. Narcissistic to a fault - the number of times he admired his own body made me wonder if he was into women at all. But somehow, Sky seems to hold his ticket back to reality...and Mr Rock God wants everything she can offer.

While the events are the same as those in Summer Sky, this book gives you a deeper understanding of the circumstances behind them. Even that legendary bacon sandwich that Sky (and I!) will never forget...I was shocked to discover that it almost didn't happen. As to why, well...luckily, I don't do spoilers, so you'll have to read this one for yourself.

Five stars. Now I need to go reread the rest of the series. You should, too.

Summer Star tells the story of when Dylan, lead singer of rock band Blue Phoenix, met Sky, a regular girl trying to escape from a bad break up.
They literally crash in to each other one day, down a country lane. Both running away from life, and straight in to each other.
This time we get the beginning of Summer Sky from Dylan's POV.

When I first read Summer Sky, the first Blue Phoenix story, and where it all began. My favorite parts had been when Dylan and Sky first met. I loved how they came to be at the cottage at the same time. Those first scenes where they were getting to know each other were the best. Everything was all quiet crushing, and learning about each other, perhaps finding themselves at the same time.

They say you can never really get the feeling back, of reading a book for the first time. With Summer Star, it kind of felt like I was. It was like reading a different book, but also one I love, I already loved the characters and the story, but it felt new and different.

Dylan's POV is so different from when we read it in Sky's POV. Dylan is a Rock God and desired by millions all over the world. When he meets Sky, he isn't in an entirely good place. He is battling inner demons, and needs to be as far from the world of Blue Phoenix as he can get. We get to be inside rock god Dylan Morgan's head, as he is blown away by beautiful, and unique Sky. Hearing his reactions and thoughts was awesome. You can even see his transition from the man he was when he crashed in to Sky, to whom he becomes after spending a few days, with the girl who slowly steals his heart.

Again, this POV shows just how versatile author Lisa Swallow can be. Reverse POV's never usually grab my attention, but she made it feel like reading a whole new story. It was gripping, funny, and started my addiction to Dylan Morgan all over again. I'll never tire of anything that comes out of the Blue Phoenix world.
5 Stars.

Summer Star is a great addition to the Blue Phoenix series. It helped me get to know the storyline from Dylan's perspective. It fills in the gaps and further propels my love for the Blue Phoenix series. The quick whit and banter between Sky and Dylan is laugh out loud funny, making my heart wrench for these characters as they progress through the story. Summer Star can be read anytime after Summer Sky. If you are a Blue Phoenix fan, this is a must read!

We all knew Dylan was a bit cocky, product of the life style. But getting inside his head showed just how much he was also angry and bitter over the life style. I wish it had continued on a bit further, maybe up until he left for the states.

A fantastic backstory to Dylan and Sky's romance told from Dylan's point of view. I love the reality Lisa Swallow managed to get into her arrogant male character - very impressive and very blokey - a spoilt rock star who really knows he is hot and ripped. It's lovely to see him evolving so quickly as he realises what he needs and tries to grasp the little bit of real world he finds in Sky before it slips through his fingers. What I really like about this book is getting the understanding of Dylan's anxiety and stress - the world of tension he's in before he does a runner from the recording studio. His worldliness shows through as well - he really knows when a girl likes him and is kind of bewildered when she doesn't fall at his feet. His arrogance actually makes you laugh out loud once or twice. Yes, it's a cliffhanger but breathe easy - the sequel is out and we get a very satisfying resolution. :) TIP: read Summer Sky first, then Summer Star, then Falling Sky. Love those Blue Phoenix rock boys!

It completely amazes me how an author can still grab their readers attention, even when they go back and re-tell one of their books, but from another characters point of view (POV). It, to me anyways, shows that the author truly loves their characters and works hard to bring them to life for their readers; and I must say that Lisa has definitely done just that. With her newest release, Summer Star (The Blue Phoenix Series Book 1.5), novella to that of Summer Sky (The Blue Phoenix Series Book 1), Lisa re-tells the chance meeting and instant spark of both, normal everyday girl Sky Davis, and that of lead singer/guitarist of the Blue Phoenix band, Dylan Morgan.

This time though readers were greeted with a different POV, that of Dylan Morgan. Whose mind we learn is full of questions, concerns, worries, and of course... sex. Readers finally get to experience what was running through Dylan's mind as he and Sky spent their overlapping Holiday together, and at the same cottage that they both visited when they were younger. Dylan's mind, as I stated, is fully of worries and concerns about where his life in the rock an roll world is going, and if all the drugs and alcohol, along with the constant anxiety and pressure from those around him, will finally catch up with him; and not in a good way. Yet, when Dylan meets Sky his world is completely changed, and for the better, as he now wants to live in the world that they created at the cottage, just a little bit longer before both of them return to the worlds that drove them away in the first place.

Finally getting to read Dylan's thoughts about his and Sky's time together was simply amazing. I was not able to stop reading and wanted there to be so much more!
